It's not so black and white as "HEADPHONES + CLIP-ON MICROPHONE DERP" (I'll concede that most of the time it is, but not in this instance). The OP wants good directional audio for FPS games, so that rules out closed-back cans. He's already looking at the AD700's, but getting those and a clip-on mic will run him over $100. A SteelSeries Siberia V2 headset, while the sound quality on the whole won't be as good as the AD700's, still has a pretty wide soundstage for good positional audio. Also, there's a retractable microphone built into the earcup. With the sale going on at SteelSeries right now, a V2 can be bought for $63 (before shipping) while the AD700 + mic combo, as mentioned before, will be over $100. It's up to him whether the sizable price premium for the AD700's is worth it.
And judging from his posts, he's not considering the Superlux HD668B's that I recommended him. These headphones + a clip-on mic will probably cost about the same as the Siberia V2's.
