Best Headset for around 20

So my old headset it pretty battered and old, and what with Grid 2 being released next week I need a new headset.

I usually chat while racing so want something that's pretty good for voice.

There are so many to choose from and no doubt half of them are a load of rubbish, so I am looking for some recommendations please.

Cheers

Paul.

Hi Maxie, thanks for your reply. I don't use ebay at all and don't have an account. I would prefer to buy from a regular online retailer and it appears they are around 30 from all of them.

Paul, here is the set I use, really inexpensive, and works great with Teamspeak and steam chat. They are comfortable, have good volume. I buy my headsets like my keyboards, always cheap because I am rough on them.

Logitech 981-000349 - Newegg.com

I don't have the white set, but those are exactly the same. I found them to be more comfortable than some other more expensive brands/ headsets.

That set looks like it would be very comfortable. The glasses part is what gets me as I wear reading glasses for the computer.

Thanks Solar, they are also available from Argos so I could collect, they are 21 here so bang on budget, and I don't wear glasses.

I will have a look at reviews on both sets.

Cheers
