What are the best headphones for use with Skype?

Tonight I was invited onto Peter Himmelman’s very cool Tuesday night jam session. He calls it his “Furious World.” He’s a musician and damn that show is fun. Anyway, my old headset didn’t work anymore and since I’m on so many podcasts I went to the local computer shop to get a new headset. I wasn’t prepared for the dozens of choices. Logitech. Plantronics. Sennheiser.

I needed one desperately so got the nicest looking set I could find, the Sennheiser PC 166. I paid about $95, list price is $150 (there are plenty of good headsets for far less than that, but I wanted a nice set for playing games and music while everyone else watches TV too).

Anyway, since I was forced into buying quickly, I wonder what your favorite headsets are?

Oh, and next Tuesday night you should check out what Peter’s doing with his friends. It’s the most innovative live video I’ve watched so far online (he mixes in geek talk in between jamming and fooling around with his friends/band/music).
