Im looking for a new headset for my new PC that will be arriving next week, the sound card on it is a Creative SoundBlaster X-FI sound card and would like to take full advantage of it . http://www.overclock.net/intel-gener...am-my-new.html <--My new PC....

What Do you think is the best non-usb headset out there that has a built on MIC?

As a rule, don't buy audio products from a keyboard maker. Look into Sennheisers, they are fairly inexpensive and will give you good bass, treble...pretty much everything.

I own a pair of Icemat Siberia and has no problem reproducing excellent bass and treble when hooked up to my audigy zs2. Clip on mic is very hand because I place it on the desk or clip it onto my pencil cup etc. w/ no hassle of attached mic.
$39.99 at Buy.com http://www.buy.com/prod/icemat-siber...203121718.html

Other brands of major consideration:
Steel Pad (Heard good things about this)
55.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836509102
Turtle Beach
49.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836502004
Sennheiser (I haven't researched them much when it comes to "headset")

My Logitech Z-5300s sound mighty nice. As do my Yamaha NS-A636s, and Yamaha makes keyboards and motorbikes!

you can trust sennheiser. Actually just Sat I had a guy begging me to sell him my discontinued HD580's
of course I wouldn't let them go... they're getting hard to come by, and they're my main can. I did however let go of my custom cable for it... for $125


speaking of which.... look left for a pic of them, and no, they aren't stock...

i suggest Audio Technica ATH-A900 or ATH-AD900, a competitor from senn's HD595. a very comfortable headphone with strong bass (not necessarily monstrous) which is a good all-rounder (Music TV Gaming) and doesn't necessarily need an amp. it's simply to die for

Don't go with the Logitech headsets, that Precision PC Gaming Headset is garbage, gets way too hot and does not handle bass worth a damn, treble can sound alright at times. But this headset is very cheap and an inexpensive fix for a comfortable headset, but like I said does make your ears very warm.
