Hey guys! I understand that I've been posting a few forum posts lately but I just have so much to get around.

Anyways, I'm hoping that I can get a Youtube channel up and running soon, however, I need help with a slight detail.

The headset I plan on getting is the Razer Kraken Pro:

The answer I need is: will the mic on the headset sound good? Or should I buy a proper mic separately? If so, which one? (As long as it isn't super pricey it'll probably do).

Why pay $80 when you can get a perfectly sustainable headset for 20 on amazon?

I'm using this one and the mic quality is crystal clear, it has sound cancellation and a few others features. They do hurt your head like most headsets at first, but after about a week or so they conform to your head and fit perfectly without any issues.
