If you buy any of these, you are overpaying for the quality of product you are getting, they are all garbage. Headsets are poorly and cheaply made, so they break extrememly easy. Their audio quality is pretty poor as well.
Your best bet is to get a studio quality pair of headphones and a stand alone mic, sounds like you already have that.
No one who has been around here for a while and knows what they are talking about will ever recommend you a logitech, razer, turtle beach, etc or any audio with a usb connector. Period.
Whats your budget? What kind of music do you listen to?
Cheap: JVC HARX700 http://www.amazon.com/JVC-HARX700-Precision-Sound-Headphones/dp/B0013OWPV4
Best Bang for your buck: AD 700 (open design so best sound positioning and sound stage, but lower bass because of it)
Good: HD 280 pros
(need an amp though)
I'm sorry, but these recommendations aren't any better.
The HD280s are terrible for gaming. They have no sound stage at all. Almost all the other recommendations in this thread would be superior to the HD280s.
The JVC RX700s are only "good" if you're on a VERY strict budget. Even then, you can easily find much better gaming headphones for 10 bucks more.
OP, your best bet is to go with an AD700, clip on mic and an Asus Xonar DG or Creative XtremeGamer/Music sound card.
Alternative route is to go with the Creative Titanium, Clip on Mic and Samson RH600s.
Difference is the first has a better gaming headphone, but weaker sound card. The 2nd has a stronger sound card, but weaker gaming headphone.
Read the threads in my sig to understand why you won't want a USB headset.
If you absolutely need a gaming HEADSET because you're not into FPS games and don't care for surround sound, but just want to chat with your homies, then the Carcharias are okay and the Triton's aren't bad. SteelSeries 7H is pretty good. I would stay away from FATAIL1Ty anything and Turtle BeachX11/12s.Edited by Simca - 12/13/11 at 11:44am
