Yeah the wireless is pretty pricey. It really comes down to what you need the mic for if it's voice coms and recording or any sort of use where you need high quality audio recordings getting a quality standalone mic will be worth it. Getting a headset with a built in mic and the same or similar quality to your current headset will be pretty pricey. My usual recommendation for inexpensive but also high quality audio and microphone in a gaming headset is the Hyper Cloud II headset. From what I can see the $70 for a wired Modmic is still cheaper than buying a headset with a built in mic while getting the same audio quality as your current one. It's really up to you though. If you're only needing a mic for voice coms maybe find a cheap $20 standalone mic on amazon with good reviews and see if that works for what you need. 

I have a set of DT770 Pro headphones and I need a MIC. I looked into the ModMIC, BUT GOOD GOD IS IT EXPENSIVE! I'm thinking if it's more worth it to get a decent gaming headset than buying this thing.

 

Any thoughts?

Which Modmic are you looking at? If I remember correctly they're like $50 for the normal wired version, which to be fair isn't that expensive for a standalone mic let alone one with the sound quality they have and the way they mount to the headset.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

I was looking at the wireless one, but even the wired one for me is $70, seems like I'm farther ahead to get a different headset...

Ya I'll probably get a cheap standalone. I only need it for discord. Though.....I wonder if I can get a cheap wireless mic and duct tape it to my headset

For sitting at a desk, a usb mic on a boom arm is pretty convenient. Always plugged in, you just swing it around when you're ready for chatting. Plenty of cheap kits on Amazon.

 

I do use a mod mic wired for xbox with some good headphones, and a wireless modmic for travel. Headsets just arent built to be durable in this day and age, and I like my gear to last.
