Some key things I need:
-Has a mic
-Good for hearing foot-steps in games like Battlefield
-200$ or under
-Durable
-Does not require a good sound card (I don't even know my sound card)
-It would be a nice bonus if I can also plug it into my iPod but if not then it's fine

the ATH-M50 is around $150 or so and shits on most 'gaming' varieties. definitely one of the best midrange models out there, if not the best.

trust me if you haven't tried a GOOD stereo pair of headphones in a gaming environment, you're missing out. many gamers think they need a surround-sound headset for positional audio, but never realize that a solid stereo pair will do as good a job - and often times better. no bull

its low impedance and can be driven w/o a soundcard / dac. and yes its ipod/iphone compatible. (no mic tho). opt for the straight cable version if u do, the coiled one is a bit too weighty
