"While many of us only need a standard headset with a simple boom mic, there’s a growing demand for higher quality microphones for both gamers and streamers, on Twitch, YouTube Live and much more. Turtle Beach are not the first to make a dedicated streaming microphone, but they are one of the more affordable options too, and their new Stream Mic comes with support for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, making it a tempting solution for the multi-format gamer and streamer."

Most >$50 headset mics are indistinguishable quality wise from one of these stand alone mics, for regular speech. These standalone mics also have the downside that if you don't have a mic stand, the vibrations from hitting keys on your keyboard will travel to the mic and be extremely audible, even with noise cancellation provided by software. For that reason alone I hate when people use these types of mics to communicate, because they don't even notice that they are doing it, and think that since they spent X amount of money they are set.

Also as a side note, the link provided from eteknix goes to a headset review instead of the standalone mic talked about in the pcper post.

Turtle Beach is living in markup city, where the tourists do not read tour guides.
