So my headphones are developing a short in one ear and I think its time to get a new set. I am looking for a set well under $100. Maybe $60, but that is flexable. My biggest complaint with my current set is that they hurt my ears after a half hour or so. So comfort and a decent mic is really my only needs. I don't want them to sound like crap, but I have tin ears and I don't expect to much for $60.
I use the Sennheiser HD555 & they are by far the best headphones I've ever used.

Curious about the open-backed design. I actually am looking for a headset with a mic though. I wasn't clear. I play a lot of FPSers and Left 4 Dead is no fun with no mic.
you could probably get some bose ones of ebay for cheap, bose are the ***.
the Razer Barracudas are also good, so i'v heard.
I don't recommend the Fat4lity headset. I got it "free" with my x-fi titanium. They hurt my ears after 30min, but the mic is great and the sound is pretty nice for $50. However, the headphones are not deep enough for me. Otherwise I can't really help. You could try ABS or Plantronics. I know there's a ABS headset with surround and a mic for $35 at newegg...They also appear to be deeper. They could be worth a try, but again I'm not sure.
I have to recommend the Audio Tehcnica ATH-AD700's they are the best headphones I've heard yet. I've heard the sennheiser hd555s too. They are also the most confortable headphones I have ever put on and I have tried several bose headphones. The soundstage is amazing as well. The bass is slightly lacking but it is precise not boomy which I prefer. Look into them and you won't be disappointed. I purchased mine for $83 USD, and bought a zalman clip on mic to go with them.
