I used these for a really long time until I moved up to the Logitech G35s and then from that to a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50s.

The audio technicas are expensive but oh my GOSH they are the best headphones I have ever owned. The Sennheisers are really nice, though.

I don't play online that often and fell that gaming headset are overpriced for the audio fidelity they offfer. So I use a Zalman ZM-MIC1 lavalier mic that snaps to the cord of my Audio Technica ATH-M50s headphones. It's a bit annoying to have two cords, but whatever.

Here's the headset I have
