HyperX Cloud II hands down. It has a much better microphone, more comfortable and it sounds better than the others. The Logitech G430 sounds OK and the mic is OK but it's extremely uncomfortable. The Vengeance 1500 is even worse.

The HyperX Cloud II is the best headset under $100 (in my opinion)

Will I need a soundcard for it? The current headset I have the mic never worked for. I think it is because I dont have a sound card.

This is my current build:
Intel i5 4690k

Gigabyte R9 290

Gigabyte Z97X UD3H Motherboard

G.skill Sniper Series 4x4 16GB 1866MHz RAM

XFX 650W Gold Certified PSU

2TB Seagate Barracuda

Xigmatek Dark Knight CPU Cooler

Corsair Graphite Series 230T

You don't need a sound card. It's a USB headset. All you do is plug in the USB and then plug in the green cable to the motherboard. What headset do you have right now?

I have the steel series siberia v2 but the mic wont work on it.

I have a GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD3H motherboard and I tried plugging it into the back of the computer but the mic still didn't work. The sound quality is great but I want the mic to work.

Does Windows recognize it? Is it set as your default communication device? Is it setup in Skype?
