Need Help With Headset

Hey guys, I need some info on some headsets.  I'm about to buy a HD PVR so I can record my games in better quality so I was wondering about getting another headset.  I do have a Turtle Beach Earforce XL1, but the problem with it is that when I plug the mic into my controller it emits an annoying ringing sound.  It doesn't matter much since I play noisy games anyway (Halo, COD, Forza, etc.), but if I were to record with the PVR it would pick it up, and would annoy the heck out of my YouTube viewers.

So basically I need to know if there is a headset, preferably under $45, that does not emit a ringing sound.  I don't really need to have great sound (by this I mean gameplay sounds through the headphones), since I'll only be using to record.

Hello, there!

I've used alot of different headsets (Turtle Beaches, Astros, Tritons, Microsoft), and for Halo and CoD, I'd reccomend buying Turtle Beaches. I'm not sure about Forza, as I don't have much experience in that game (And by that, I mean none at all), but   my experience with FPSs, Turtle Beaches are best for quality and price. XP500s are incredible, but I'd recommend getting Turtle Beach X42s. They're $160 USD, Have great specs, and a reasonable price. If you can't afford X42, X32s will work just fine.

Turtle Beach's are great.I own a pair of x11's and x31's both work great no noise or feedback.You can get those models from 40-50 bucks.Just check walmart online or ebay.

if you have a play and charge it will make that sound when charging i was told by turtle beach it was normal they sell a 10$ adapter to power  it from the wall instead of the xbox they say that stops it

i have astro A40 the are the best headset out there, but the are like £200. so get steelseries are good too and if you get a turtle beach headset you are better of geting x11 and not x31's as x31 are wireless x11 are wired.
