After only about a year, my second Razer Carcharias is breaking from normal wear and tear, so between that and the terrible sound insulation (other people tended to hear what was coming through the headphones very loudly in VOIP), I'm finally about through with that headset, but can't seem to figure out a good replacement.
While I'll take a good full PC headset if it has good sound quality and a decent price, I'd like something without a mic, preferably, because the sound quality is usually better on dedicated headphones (the Carcharias being somewhat of an exception at its price point), and it's easy enough to get a cheap clip-on mic, and I really like my dad's Sennheiser HD280s, which have good sound quality, great insulation, and are easy to get for only about $60 if you're willing to go refurbished, but they clamp on your head some damned hard, that I just can't stand using them for long periods of time. I'd gladly accept some more bleed on the sound if it meant not dealing with the 280s' skull-breaking clamp force (6N, I believe it is).
Does anyone have any suggestions for some good headphones or a good headset, that run $80-$100 new, with good sound quality, and preferable at least passable insulation? I'm looking for something circumaural.
