There used to be a headphone thread on the other forum.
For the price... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826105554
Are by far the best available. They are virtually indestructible, and audio quality is decent, although maybe a little heavy on the bass (which isn't really a problem for gaming).
If price is less of a factor, non-gaming marketed headphones that are really good would include Sony studio monitors and Bose QuietComforts. Much like a good mouse... once you find something you absolutely love, you should just buy a couple sets of them so that when they inevitably wear out you can just replace them with the same instead of having to find something new and get used to it.
