Windows 7: Want to buy new headset, any recommendations?

Want to buy new headset, any recommendations?

So my old headset is malfunctioning, there's no sound in the right ear to be more specific. So I am looking to buy a new one, here is a few clues as for what I'm looking for:

Budget: around 40-100$, can pay more if it's a good headset.
Must have: a microphone, good sound
Bonus: wirelessness
Bonus: if it doesn't ruin your hair
Bonus: the actual looks of it
Bonus: warranty (I've had at least 6 headsets so far and they all broke)

All input appreciated!

Morning Tonsgaard!
It seems like everyone's having headset problems recently
I've had a few expensive headset's in the last couple of years and my fav by far is the ROCCAT Kave. The sound is very good and so is the mic. I use voice activation in Teamspeak and the mic doesn't pick any background noise up at all unless it's loud. My pc is no more than 10ft away from the washing machine which can be running but not heard untill i speak. Even then its only faint.
I would probably buy the same headset again when it gives up on me..
Bare in mind that it is a true 5.1 headset so you need a compatible soundcard or enough audio outputs from your motherboard, which most do nowaday's. You need to be able to plugin 3x 3.5mm jacks for the audio, 1x 3.5mm mic and 1 x usb to power the inline control.
Have a look at the product page ROCCAT STUDIOS V3.0 - PRODUCTS Gaming Sound ROCCAT Kave 5.1 They're a fair bit cheaper than some lesser headsets too at around 60 (531.23 Danish Krone)

I have a set of Cooler Master Storm Sonuz and I absolutely love them, it's a great headset for the price.
