Recommendation for a Gaming Headset

Can someone please recommend a gaming headset for me? Sorry, I am not good with finding hardware and tech stuff due to complete lack of experience in doing so.

Some prerequisites I'm looking for:

-Gotta be a headset, not too fussy about sound quality

-Gotta have a decent mic

-Gotta only have one analogue 3.5mm jack (for both the mic and the speakers)

-$100 AUD around but more is fine

 

Thank you

Sorry for asking, but does the Arctis 3 come with one jack only? As in, the 3.5mm jack is capable of doing both the mic and the sound?

I'd suggest you to avoid shiny gaming brands for such peripherals, get a Superlux HD681EVO + cheap mic and never look back.

it comes with one 4-pole 3.5mm and one cable that has 2, 3-pole 3.5mm that you can use. they are switchable thanks to a connection in the cable.

I apologise for being a newb as I have little experience in this.

 

is the headset, with the 4-pole 3.5mm single jack, able to do both the mic and the sound? Since my laptop has one jack plug for both mic and sound, I was wondering whether this headset’s one jack is capable of doing so?

with a 4-pole jack you are supposed to be able to use it (as the extra pole is for the mic). you said that your laptop supports it, so it should work all fine. my tablet is able to use the headset + mic so it works for me at least.

 

also, no need for apologising, asking is always better than guessing
