I am using the Creative Fatality HS800, honestly if you cannot get it lower than $20-30 I would ignore it. Its functional, yes, but on the other hand it causes my ears to hurt after a few hours. You might have a different experience though. My advice is to get a nice earphone with a clip on mic. Might be more expensive right now, but on the other hand, you get to upgrade your headset as you go along without needing to care about the mic, and also there is a wider selection to choose from.
