Looking for a new gaming headset. Needs a mic, and preferably the leather/pleather covers for the headphones. Needs good lows (for watching movies and dubstep) Preferably wireless if possible but I would prefer performance.

I have a Logitech G930 (wireless one)

If you want a good general setup, get proper headphones, such as Sennheiser HD558s, and either a ModMic or desktop mic, such as Blue Yeti Pro.

I've just ordered myself a ModMic 3.0 to go with my DT990 Pro's.

Why would you want a USB mic? 2.5mm can be amped and is generally better quality dependant on your Sound Card. Built-in mics are overrated

I get a lot of interference with those normal audio lines under my desk because of my sub woofer. I also don't want to deal with 2 sets of drivers. Also, that mic is just stick on. I would break that off in a week. I don't see a need to use a desktop mic because it is just one more thing to bring with me if I ever take my desktop to a friends house. Not to mention it would take up valuable desk space, and just add more wires.

I am really liking these headphones, especially with the roll in mic. Since I dont use a mic very often anymore, it is really nice to be able to get it completely out of my peripheral vision when gaming.
Careful with the microphone on those though - me and some friends had ours and tended to take them around packing them and taking where ever we were going. After awhile 3/4 either broke completely or just cut in and out with a ton of distortion. I don't know if it's a loose connection from taking the microphone in and out but on my warantee set I left the microphone out almost all of the time as I didn't really take them anywhere and they lasted a year, until the left ear cup went on them. They're really comfortable though too after the earpads get some wear into them.

Thanks for the heads up! I was getting the feeling that that would be the weak part of them. Since I rarely use my mic, its going to be in most of the time anyway.

Plus I got the 2 year warranty with Best Buy. So if they break and they don't have more I get a chance at picking up a better one.

They were a decent price, and honestly the bass is really good in them. Much better sound quality than my Logitech G930s were. Plus, they had me sold when I stuck my finger through the box and touched the ear cuff. They feel incredible, super light, and dont move or slip off.

For the record I keep the blue lights off

I got the Corsair Vengeance 1500 USB headset for about $69 on Newegg last Christmas and I like those quite a bit, don't have any complaints. But I would recommend them for bigger heads (I have a large cranium) so it may not suit you (depending on your head size haha).
