I need a new headset

I am looking for a new headset after noticing the mic on mine is broken. I would be using it to talk in games so it doesnt need to be super fancy but i am willing to spend around $100 if that is what a good one costs. I wear glasses and the old one got uncomfortable really fast so I would like one that works well with someone who is wearing glasses. Other than that I have no particular needs out of it. If you have any suggestions I would be glad to hear them.

    I've had this:

    for quite a while now, and it has served me very well. Good sound quality, nice mike, and the volume/mute controls are on the right earphone, not hanging from the cord weighing it down.

    I'd buy another one today if it went out.

    I have this one. The headphones let sound out and in, so you can hold a conversation while still wearing them. They're pretty comfortable, but a bit hot. If I were looking for something very nice, they aren't what I'd get, but in the sub $50 range, they're quite nice.

    The ones you linked are the closed-ear ones, that don't let outside noise in. :P I have the open-ear ones, which do let sound in, and they work beautifully. And if you don't want to use the mic, it retracts into the headband, which is quite convenient.
