you can buy a usb soundcard for cheap which will give you a mic jack and a headphone jack. that will solve your issue.

likely the best over ear headset you will find under that price are the gamecom 380's for 22gbp.

or, you could have a look at any of these in ears http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-headphones-under-30/ or something similar which may come with a microphone. generally though they will be omnidirectional microphones which may pick up on lots of background noise.

is there a reason why you need it to be usb?

most laptops have a 3.5mm headphone and 3.5mm microphone jack for you to use.

then all you would need is a 2x 3.5mm 3pole to 1x 3.5mm 4pole conversion cable to use it with a cell phone.

not sure what you mean by "budget"

My daughter's laptop only has a socket for headphones and not a microphone which is why she wants a usb connection.
By budget, I mean anything about £30 or less.
