does it need to be USB?

The best headphones by far are the Audio Technica ATH-M50's, especially for the money. Nothing else really comes close to the sound and build quality.

No, it cannot be USB.

Your best bet is to get a good pair of audiophile stereo cans and pair them with a separate mic. Also, as suggested, Sennheiser headsets are top-notch.

From what I understand, the upcoming headset adapter will allow you to mix game audio and chat levels. Hopefully, MS will enable streaming downmixed 5.1-to-stereo audio to the controller. No need for a MixAmp.

Would you not rather have something that is using dolby headphone technology and something with more power to drive the headphones?

As for a seperate mic, the Modmic is pretty good, best seperate mic solution I've used. But I still prefer the Sennheiser PC360 mic over the Modmic.
