It's a little higher than my price range, but from what I hear it does very well in games, plus has some bass which makes them good all around headphones.
Using head-fi to read some reviews.
Plus this gaming headphone guide
Does it seem reliable?
As for the mic, I might go for a Zalman mic
about the AKG : I own myself a K701 (really similar model and sound), and you have to know that there is bass only if properly amped (you need a powerfull source, not a nomade one, or then you need a headphone amp). Then it's a wonderfull model, but it's always better to try to listen to it before purchase, to know if you like this kind of sound signature.
