I am looking for a good gaming headset as a gift for someone. I heard the HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset was excellent, however it has a 3.5mm jack which I would think would be better if he had a decent sound card. Of course it has a lot more uses, but I was just wondering if the USB headsets had any more build in sound processing?

I was thinking about pairing it with an external sound card but it was getting out of budget and I know my bf wont buy one himself :p. I was thinking ideally around £50ish. Maybe up to £70.

Thanks!
