I have the PC160's Myself and all I can say is amazing! The mic is super-clear and they sound excellent! They are definately worth the price.

Wow. I was trying to make the point that expensive doesn't mean good and somehow the first sentence got deleted. My bad.

Zalman Clip on Mic.

Nice headphones don't come with mics, but nice headphones are expensive. You should go in the audio and multimedia section to ask this question.

I can imagine a clip on mic will be pretty ****e quality.
@ Travis18 why do you say that? I have heard good things about these headphones. Different models might be bad which may not be the case for this one.

I use Sennheiser PC150s and they work excellent.

And yea, stay away from USB.

I believe USBs are no good because they dont use the sound card, they have a small, built in Sound processing unit.
