I am looking to buy a headset (headphones + mic) that will have great mic quality and good sound quality. I want it to be good enough for high quality youtube recording. I don't care too much for sound quality, but it shouldn't be unbearable. Finally, I don't want the sound to be heard outside the headset, even though I won't be playing the music too loud.
The budget is $200.
Good luck!
And thanks to anyone who replies!
 
many professional youtubers use seperate headphones and a stand alone microphone. the sound quality is much better than many all-in-one type headsets for both recording and listening.

here is an example of something around your budget (its just a bit over).

other good microphone choices. the snowball mic is pretty common.

as far as other good headphones... the beyerdynamic dt770 is good and normally is in the same league as the m50s however they arent available for as cheap.

Thanks for the suggestion!
I will probably either get the Audio Technica AT2020 and Audio Technica ATH-M50 or the Blue Yeti and Audio Technica ATH-M50
