Default Good Headset?

My headset it pretty terrible.. all broken and taped up lol..

Looking for something new. I have mic, so I would not need one with microphone.
Just a headset.

Which one can you recommend me?

I got Sennheiser HD 202s, and it's the best set of headphones I've ever owned. Bass is pretty good with them too.

wait aren't those technically just headphones because of the lack of microphone on it?

I have: Andrea Anti-Noise NC-95

And I also have a sound Blaster card..

I can tell you these headphones are totally amazing... they sound better than my Klipsch 3.1 THX speakers...

Bass = Total awesomeness

Note: It has a microphone on it

I guess I don't really care. Headset or Headphone is ok. Just I want to have nice sound (maybe not the best out there, but good).

Does anyone use any headsets/headphones from Creative?
