Do they need to have a mic attached? EDIT: also open or closed back?

I might not know what I'm talking about but I'm gonna say it anyways

 

Try using the PSU Tier List!

Yep, I have standard earphones with a built-in Mic but I thought instead of buying a adapter or something, I'd get a good gaming headset instead

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Yrx2FT/sennheiser-gsp-300-headset-507079 These are good, but do you want open or closed?

 

You could also get this bundle for $130, but it's better than the sennheisers: attachable mic + audio technica m40x

Hey @UBatcha - Have you looked into our ModMic product before? As @hconverse02 says there's bundles of ModMics or Boompros with headphones.... but he actually linked the wrong combo! 

I'm not just saying that because the above links are a competing product to ours, but actually it won't work because the ATH M40x uses a proprietary jack not compatible with the Boompro. Pretty sure at least. The plan still is sound though, a bit over 100 but this bundle is going to really beat a gaming headset for a similar price.

 

Anyway, turns out you can get a ModMic 4 and M40x for the same $130 price! Plus a Y adapter tossed in. You may want to add a USB sound card for 7-10 dollars too.

If your limit is truly $100 you can still make it works with a pair of $50 cans. Possibilities include the Superlux 668b, Philips SHP9500, or you can usually find the Sony MDR7506 for 50-60 on Black Friday. If I had to pick I'd go for the 7506s and a ModMIc 4 and get our USB adapter for 10 dollars. That will basically put you at $100.

 

If you MUST go with an integrated headset, I'd just stick with a pair of HyperX Cloud 2s, but if you really want something cool build your own headset with a ModMic or even the boompro. Just make sure the boompro is compatible! :)
