Need stereo wireless headphones with mic for gaming usage

I find a lot of results on google, but they're all expensive and it's not clear that they'll work with the computer. Especially the issue of weather you can use the microphone for the computer is fuzzy. Does anyone have any experience with any?

Why can't you just used wired? Wireless sounds bad. I guess you don't care about audio fidelity, though... uh...

If you do opt for wired, Sennheiser makes a bunch of headsets. At least you'd be better off with those than say logitech headphones.

If wireless, make sure they are infared (IR) and not radio (RF). Speaking from experience, both are terrible, but IR is much more... tolerable. The RF wireless headphones snap crackle and pop constantly.

On my home computer, audio fidelity isn't my biggest concern, no. IR would kind of defeat the purpose of moving about the apt when, for example, the raid is recovering from a wipe and I don't really need to be at my comp untill they start talking about pulling.

Have you thought about bluetooth headsets?

And what's your price range?

Well, if I know it's going to be good, I'd go pretty high, but I've not had any luck with finding them in stores to test, so...

I think you may just be out of luck unless you want to spend >$400. Just get whatever you can find that's cheap and try it?

How about just switch from headset to speakers when you want to walk away from your computer. Seriously, you wanna spend $100 for shitty headphones to use to give you 5 minutes of free time during a raid in WoW? That seems a bit off to me.
D3V: I need to get on zelaron more. I'm having withdrawls.
Skurai: You should be used to withdrawls by now, D3V.

I can find headphones that are wireless, but not wireless headsets... unless you want the bluetooth headsets that are used for cell phones.

Obviously, that's not the only reason, but if I'm going to shell out for wireless headphones, I want that option.

Yeah, the one that looked most promising,Sony DR-BT21G/B is on that list, but I can't find any reviews on it.

It's probably too damn obscure, like most of this stuff.
