Looking for a audio interface for pod casting/streaming

Hi, I have been looking about for a while now for audio interface that best suits my needs, I know bits and pieces about audio. I'm looking for a good audio interface for streaming over twitch and also improve headphone audio quality. At the moment I have a Audio Techinica AT2020 XLR and Sennheiser HD 598s SE, I'm currently running the Microphone through a basic phantom power box a Behringer PS400. I don't ever plan to record any music or record any vocals. Just voice over game play and VOIP. I know that my headphones don't take much to drive but I do plan to get more powerful headphones in the future.

I have a budget of around 150 pounds but I'd prefer 'bang for buck' over the very best. I have looked at a few different options and I'm wondering which is the best for what I'm doing.

Focusrite Scarlett Solo (2nd Gen) £76
Native Instruments Komplete Audio 6 £150 (Don't know much about this one)
Steinberg 45840 UR22 MKII £101
Roland DUO-CAPTURE EX £101
Behringer Premium 10 £72

Any help would be great, Thanks.

Focus on brands able to deliver stable drivers and that have an history of supporting their older products. Between the ones you listed, I would go for the Steinberg UR22 MKII: top drivers (AFAIK), very good quality for the price and it gives you 2 mic channels while the Focusrite gives you only one channel. For the price, the Focusrite is extremely attractive too.
