I have a Logitech G930 and I've had it for 2+ years now and it's completely falling apart.
I'm not a huge audio buff and if you use to big of words it'll take me a while to respond because I'll have to google it to not look like a moron.

I use my headset for: gaming, VoIP, video editing(involving heavy audio editing), music, movies/tv shows.

I've been browsing the forums and it seems that it's general consensus is that while the quality of headset aren't terrible they are severely lacking when compared to a headphone+clip mic combo. To me my headset sounds pretty darn good but then again I went from a 9$ headset to the logitech sooo I don't have much experience to go buy BUT I do know that I'm paying for the "gaming headset" title when I'm buying a headset...and if I'm shoveling out my hard earned cash for something I want the best I can get.

I LOVE having a wireless headset but I'm willing to sacrifice that luxury for better sound quality considering 99% of the time I'll be using the headset at my computer.

With that being said! I need help finding the best headset, whether it be a headphone + mic combo or headphones with mic built in or a "gaming headset"..I don't care! As long as it's the best I can get for around 150$
I'm a poor college student so that's really my max.

I have the onboard sound card, no fancy schancy stuff here but I'm not sure if that makes a huge difference.

I've been looking at the MicMod stuff over here: http://www.modmic.com/collections/frontpage/products/modmic
And that seems like a pretty damn good solution but I've been reading that if you use onboard sound that it affects the mic quality? I'd really like to have a good quality mic.
And the headphones that I've seen that look pretty good for the price are the Audio Technica ATH-AD700, these things look holy crap comfortable and after using the G930 for 2 years my ears could use some TLC..but is the noise cancelling ok? I like not hearing anything outside of my computer, ignorance is bliss.

And, I listen to dubstep most of the time that I'm on my computer so I'm pretty sure that means I want headphones with good base?
Like I said I'm a completely and utter idiot when it comes to audio stuff, but please lead me to the path of enlightenment!

Sorry for the longish post that is mostly me rambling and thanks for any help!
And let me know if there's any other information I need to provide.

No preference for USB or microphone jack...I normally stay away from the jack because I've had tons of problems in the past with it never configuring right but I'm sure I can get it to work.

EDIT: Sorry, forgot to stay that I love the surround sound on the G930 and really want to keep this, I don't know if this is a...norm for headphones or if it's possible for headphones e.t.c. but I figured it's something I needed to say.
