The Sennheiser PC150 Stereo Headset looks great, just heard about it from an AliceandBill review. Partly posted as a note to myself to go check them out properly (somewhere I can try them). They look just like the sort of thing I need as a replacement for my fast-falling-to-pieces Panasonic headphones of a similar style. I use skype a fair bit now, having a long cable is very useful, and if I ever start wanting to record myself (if there's something I feel I can talk about with enough enthusiasm and interest to keep it going) they'd be great. Having to hold my other non-free, nice, microphone (not that light) all the time or lean in to speak to it isn't very convenient. Bluetooth is the other possibility I've been looking forward to, but I think the technology still needs to mature a bit and provide better quality pick-up and better battery life (if possible).
Any other recommendations? These ones are quoted at $40 on the review, and I'm happy to pay £30 odd for just a set of decent 'phones so a good price match too I guess. If I can get them in the UK anywhere (don't fancy paying US postage).
