For a microphone there's an easy solution to turn any decent pair of headphones into a headset - Antlion Modmic. This thing basically mounts/attaches to the side of any headphones and provides a detachable point using a small magnet. The 3M epoxy holds well, it won't hurt the headphones in any way and the included mic is very high quality, easily better than any gamer headset.

I might have to try that out. The desktop mic works well, but it seems to always be in my way.

Ditto! Thanks for the link, those look interesting. I too use a logitech usb desk mic with nice headphones because I listen to lossless music over them as well, and "gamer headsets" are pretty much always a sham. I cant help but feel that every pair of gamer headphones I have seen, tried, or heard stories about their "durability" (or lack thereof..) have a great degree of planned obsolescence to them, in order to get customers to re-buy the same product year after year.

Good quality headphones will last you 5-10 years *at least*, and for this reason having a separate mic was always a no-brainer for me.

Again, thanks for the link. =)
