You could try keeping your current headphones and using an external microphone.
Amazon.com: Zalman Zm-Mic1 High Sensitivity Headphone Microphone: Electronics
The nice thing about them is that they are in front of your mouth and away from your speakers, so whoever you talk to rarely gets feedback. There is much less feedback in comparison to a single unit headset (mic and headphones).

Ya- not kill the mold- but inhibits the spore release ( allergies) and growth overall. By the way- I do know what I am talking about in this area- I simplified for conversation purposes. I wish I new as much about tech stuff as I do biology, health care, etc. - been in that business for 20+ years, pretty new to the tech stuff.

I think I am going to try Trotters way- a $30 investment seems reasonable. If they are not comfy, fail at what I am looking for ( I am picky ) , or break easily- then I can use the cans I have and buy a separate mic.

I tend to have difficulty finding a headset that's comfortable as I wear glasses, but these do not bother me at all.
I had the old version of these. the ear cups are so small, they're super uncomfortable for me.

Clown- do you use a creative sound card or are you just using the onboard MOBO.

I'm using the P301 from Arctic.
Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING AC-P301 2 x Gold-plated 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Headset for Music and Movie Enjoyment

It works pretty good and comfortable.

According to Newegg, the one that is most popular is this one. I'm sure there is a reason for that.
