You know, gaming headphones are rarely "comfortable" when compared to some mainstream headphone brands. I would go for a nice pair of Sennheiser headphones and a desk mic for chat. You end up spending a tad more, but you get better quality in both your mic and headphones in terms of quality and comfort.

Gaming headphones are all about flashy LED's and brand names. You don't need all the extra doodads they try to push off for an extra $80 on their $5 drivers.

I have the Gamecom 780's and the mic quality was pretty good. I haven't had any experience with the others, but the Cloud II's are pretty popular. My friend had the G430's and the mic quality was not very good..

I'd go with something like the eBerry plug and play, or at least something similar. Ideally a free standing microphone you can point in the direction you choose. I find it more convenient than having one strapped to my head :)

G430 has an firmware update that made the mic sound a lot better. Its on the logitech site (obvious)
