I've had this for about a year now and I'm so happy with them I'll buy a new one when it eventually breaks. It's really sturdy, I've dropped it 50 times~, even sat on it a few times (and I'm quite heavy, 195lbs) and it's still up and kicking. The microphone is of good enough quality, works great on Source Games and Skype and other VOIP services, even though it's a little short. The sound quality is perfect, and while it's not the best by far, I really like the bass it kicks. It makes it easy to detect where other players are in FPS and games like that. The ear cup is quite large (which is good since I have big ears) and comfy, I've never had any problem with it. At first you'll need to get used to it because it's warm, but after a week of wearing them it'll be like a new pair of ears. The only downside is that it doesn't keep the sound in the ear cup. If I turn up the volume enough I can use it as a speaker
what i have is the Plantronics GameCom 367 Closed-Ear Gaming Headset -- they work pretty well (but the problem is that after wearing them for a couple of hours they start to hurt your ears a little...but thats only after a couple of hours)
I had a Gamecom Headset On Amazon and it was decent. Problem was, the mic broke, so I lost a headset but gained a decent pair of headphones. I wouldn't recommend them though.
These have faithfully served me for at least two years... I would highly recommend them.
I've a huge head, too, and it's an issue that you should take seriously, both for his comfort and for the life of the headphones. So many headsets have broken on my head over the years through no fault of anything other than they are made to fit certain sizes of heads that don't include the larger ones!
With that in mind, I recommend these: Plantronics GameCom 367
That's the set I've used for gaming for years now. They're solid but light and comfortable on my huge head. "Years" is an important word, since I've spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on 'nicer' headsets that last 6-9 months before one of the cups breaks off.
