Default Help decide on a new headset

OK I'm using a 10 dollars POS Turtle Beach right now. I want a new headset, something that is comfortable, and good for listening to music. I play WoW, so 3D sound or whatever isn't needed because it isn't an FPS. They also have to sound good, decent bass and such. Here are my top two competitors

I kinda am leaning towards the ABS. The other ones seem heavier (less comfortable) and have some stupid features I don't need nor want. Detachable mic? Battery pack or some crap? But maybe the sound quality is better on the other one...I don't know.

Thoughts?

I would suggest the Zalman's and purchase the microphone on the bottom

Or the ABS

They make high quality products'

It really depends on which site you like better

If all else fails, Go Newegg

Nah none of those spike my interest, as for the NewEgg ones...now I'm leaning towards the TekNmotion, my only concern is their comfort and weight, the ABS seems like the lighter and more comfortable of the 2. My question is, about this whole vibration feature which seems quite common among headsets. When does it vibrate? Is it like game controller? Or just when the volume gets loud or something?

OK let me rephrase my question. Of the 2 I have posted which one would you buy if you had to buy one? I like the suggestions of other ones but I'd rather have someone pick 1 of the 2 I've posted because to be honest I can't choose...I'm so indecisive it's annoying
