I've got the 166's and they are hand's down the best pair I've ever put on. The mic is nice and clear, no one ever complains of not being able to hear me in Ventrilo or teamspeak.
The only thing I wear headset for are games that require you to know which direction the sound is coming from (Counterstrike 1.6, COD4, etc) and it works extremely well. I've used other headsets that don't locate the sound very good and you end up turning or looking the wrong way, that never happens with this headset.
The best part is that this headset has a great deal of padding, I could wear mine for 10+ hours and not have any pain or aching in my ears. Other cheap Logitech headsets I've worn have put me in pain after only half an hour.
And this concludes the reasons I think the Sennheisers are the best
