    ok, i'm looking for both a new set of headphones, as well as a mic (for online gaming). the headphones i would like to be of good sound quality, since i tend to be a bit of an audiophile. i know good headphones are out there, but i'm not sure if good headphones are out there with a mic boom built in.

    what kinda setups do you guys use? i'm looking for suggestions and opinions.


    on the other hand, would it be a good idea for online gaming to use a seperate mic and headphones? like, have a mic sitting on my desk somewhere rather than attached to the headphones.

    thats exactly what i was going to recommend, except i thought it was a different model with the boom, not a seperate attachment...

    ok... i think i'm going to get that cheap-o logitech mic and see how that goes with my normal speakers.

    the headphones i wont need for a little while.. i think about it more... and i wouldnt need them all that often... and just cant justify it. i already have a pair of earbuds (Sony EX-71's) for my ipod, which i could always use in a pinch.

    thanks for your help guys.
