Default Headphones

I know I'm kind of beating a dead horse here, but I need to get some headphones. The criteria is they have to be surround sound, at least 5.1, and they have to have a built in mic. The thing is, I don't even know if they make surround headphones with a mic. I would like to spend no more than 200 dollars on these if possible. Thanks for the help1

Surround sound headphones suck. Please look here:

And if need be, post a thread asking for help here, or search for existing gaming headphone threads:

With your budget, your best bet would probably be an Audio-Technica ATH-A900:

And a Zalman clip-on mic:

Also, if you can up your price a tad, the Beyerdynamic DT-770 (80 ohm version) headphones would be even better.
