Affordable, Quality gaming headset?
I'm looking to buy both a decent mic and nice pair of headphones (been stuck using the Terrible apple ones since my other pair broken), so I figured I'd just streamline the process and go for a nice headset and was wondering if you guys had any recommendations. Now I am looking for one with cushiony headphones, but nothing ridiculously expensive.
Think this As opposed to this Any ideas? You shall receive muffins

RE: Affordable, Quality gaming headset?
I use a Turtlebeach P11 which can be used on my PS3 along with my PC and I think it was like 40-60 dollars at Gamestop. Yes I was that desperate to find a usb headset because my computer can not STAND me using the 2 plug headsets.

You do live streams or commentaries of SC2 and we will see if you got what it takes.

I have a similar set up to this. I use headphones to hear and I use an Xbox 360 controller that's plugged into my PC with a mic attached for the voice, rather than using the small ear pieces on the regular Xbox headsets.

@Arjahn: (Assuming you're talking about Xbox here)
Turtle Beach XL1 Xbox Gaming Headset Xbox360
Tritton Trigger Stereo Headset Xbox360 <- They use these are fighting game tournaments.
ORB GX1 Gaming Headset X360 Xbox360
Insanely cheap:
VX Comms Elite Headset for Xbox 360 Xbox360
Xbox 360 Elite Headset Black Xbox360
Madcatz Headcom Pro Xbox360

Anything by MadCatz and Razer I'd recommend

I had some £5 headphones.

They work fine.

But I guess Turtle Beach are the best.

I use a Wired Rocketfish headset. It was only 60 or 70 dollars and is VERY high quality for the price. It's also easy to set up and configure.
