Any mic and/or headset recommendations?

I have the sennheiser 360 headset but I think it is on it's way out (sometimes only get sound out of one ear). So I'm in the market for something new, anyone have recommendations? Please and thankyou.

Budget? What will you be using it for? If music, what sort of music and what sort of sound do you like? Open or closed?

Primarily gaming. I have a decent audio set-up for listening to music.

I have this one, I really love it. If you have a bit of a wider head, it might be tight though.

They are very big. And obviously it has a mic, so if you want to go outside with it you might consider getting a better looking pair. The mic isn't huge though, so you can actually hide it pretty well.
If you don't care about looks, in terms of sound and comfort, it's amazing! (Keep in mind it has a USB plug, so you need to get a converter of some sorts for plugging it into an iPod etc.)

Unfortunately the mod mic is sold out, but this is something I've definitely been looking for. Is there any other mics similar to this one where its just the mic, is clip-able?

A lot of people use the Zalman mic, but truth be told, it is pretty terrible.

I found the Samson Go-mic to be a happy medium between not-too over the top in terms of price and size. But still a lot better than a lot of the standard crap mics that a lot of people use.
