Get real headphones and buy a separate mic. Gaming headsets are trash for the most part for the price when compared with actual headphones. What games do you play? What platform? And what is your budget?

+1 even budget stereo/wired cans from the likes of Superlux, JVC or Panasonic would give you far better SQ for the money

I will second this, although the pc360 is a nice set with built in mic. But a bit pricey, then again you get what you pay for.
