What Zicroben is very true, you cant be like " i want some good headphones ", we cant answer that question. That is pretty much the criteria you need.

Well I use a samson meteor mic with a pair of logitech G230's and feel like i could be sacrificing sound quality by spending extra money for headphones with not as good sound quality but a built in mic, when i don't use a built in mic. And my price range is less than $120

Depends what you plan to use the headphones for. If it's for gaming, I'd look into a decent pair open over the ear headphones. Open headphones will have a wide sound stage which would help if it's for gaming. They also tend to be more clear and detailed than closed back headphones, however since they are open they lack noise isolation and also will will be less bassy compared to closed back headphones.

I had the Audio Technica ATH M50s and they went for around $120 new, but occasionally you can find them for around $100 on amazon/ebay. Very solid pair of headphones with good bass response, but they did have a smaller soundstage which wouldn't make them the best for gaming.

I would try a pair of Audio Technica ATH M50s. They have a small soundstage which can be a drawback for gaming, but they should make for decent monitor headphones.

If you needed something cheaper I would look into the Sony MDR7506.

Or if you wanted an open back pair of headphones you could look into the Sennheiser HD 558. It should have a wider soundstage than the two mentioned above, but will also have less bass.
