I enjoy my CM Storm Sirius 5.1. I don't have anything complain about when I use it other than its not made for warm summer days (ah, integrated AC headphones...).

Hero modded Sennheiser PC350's are what I'm using currently, and they are my favourite set by far.

I have the PC350's as well. Good headset, great sound. Downside is cable is a bit weak and the volume dial crackles a bit...
