Question Help me choose a headset! (plz ;])

So tomorrow my friend said he would give me 20 bucks to buy a headset (I had ordered one but it's taking sooo long I can't take it anymore)

The only place we could go would be Circuit City or Best Buy

buy I can order online I guess and wait again...

I'm strongly thinking about these
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826158051
Same Price at CC
It has the most reviews on Newegg and was recommended at 3dgameman
which I both respect

Or these
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=26-265-063
They have free 3 day shipping so that isn't that bad of a wait
but I don't know about the quality

So it's either save about 20 bucks and go with the Plantronics but not know about the headset quality

Or spend the extra and get the headset I know is pretty good

What are your thoughts? They would be extremely appreciated :]

If I had the cash, I'd get the FATAL1TY headset.

Just got the Fatal1ty one Tuesday, and my ears dont want to keep them off. The mic sound isnt that good though, but you buy the headset for you and not your friends,

My brother needed a new headset, and had a budget. He went though a Logitech headset and it broke pretty fast. Lived without a hesdset for a long time, then went out and stupidly bought a $20 headset from Gamestop... Broke in 31 days as everything does. I said he should research a headset to buy and not just impulse buy, so eventually I had to research one for him. We were looking at that Creative one, but some of the reviews weren't so good. Then I found a Koss. It seemed pretty good. He wanted it and it had good reviews, so we got it. I listened to the quality for a bit and it was pretty decent. I can't speak for the mic quality, but I guess it works. The only compliant I had about is that the mic is positioned too close to your mouth, so you could lick it if you wanted to, or did on accident... He's had it for over a month, no problems so far.
