At that price range, I would be looking at a Razer Carcharias. I haven't used it but hardcore audiophiles seem to find it acceptable in terms of sound quality and gamers seem to love it it terms of mic quality and comfort. It was just on sale at Tigerdirect for $37 a little while ago, it regularly goes on sale for ~$50 and can be PMed at NCIX for $70 atm.

Heh comfort is 11 on a scale of 10, and yeah at least it WORKS in all the games I've played...compared to a certain TT headset
