Default Gaming Headset

I'm looking for a gaming headset, for upto around $80.

Been searching on Newegg.com, but based on the reviews, haven't found any that really stands out from the others.

Maybe this one, but not sure:

Also, I can get this one for $80 at my local CompUSA:

x2. It tickles me pink when I read reviews from people that say they have a "high" level of understanding and clearly they don't.

The Razer will do you well. But, I've been told you really can't beat Steel Series or Turtle Beach.

I have the Razer HP-1s and they are great... they get a little uncomfortable after a while of leaving them on though... thats really the only negative I have to say about them

I have a set of THESE (Plantronics 365).

This set is AWESOME! Excellent sound quality for gaming/music/movies BUT The Mic can be a little quiet sometimes.

The thing I find hard to discern is the ear cup size. It's hard to find a gaming headset that actually fits over my ears instead of on top of them.
