I need a comfy headset!

Games & Technology
Maybe this isn't the right place for this post, but I need recommendations for a comfy headset. Mine hurts my ears after a while. Must be USB and have big ear cups. Thanks.
I use a Plantronics 777. I have used it for a while (I play WoW) and I like it.
I use this:

Super comfy.. kinda pricey.. got mine off amazon
Thanks for the recommendations guys. Does anyone have the Diablo 3 headset? Or the fancy wireless Logitech ones?
If you cross-platform like me ( NOT THE BEST PC HEADSET DUE TO PRICE AND CROSSPLATFORM ) .

Tritton AX pro. Cheaper and better than !@#$ty overpriced mlg astro a40.
bump for more recommendations
I use a razer's very comfy I ware them all day long with no issue's, the ear peaces are big like you want and soft.
My Logitech G35 is the most comfortable headset I've ever owned in my life. I can literally wear it on my head all day without any discomfort. That and it's super affordable and has great sound with a great mic. Definitely recommend it. They have a wireless version that's also very comfy, but battery life isn't all that great.
sennheiser, don't buy some made in china crap that best buy sells you.

buy from a reputable world renowned speaker maker.

pc350 is a GREAT set.

What model? They have a few different ones.
Bumping one more time.... I need something comfortable and sturdy. I've seen many poor reviews for Razer and Logitech, saying they break after normal use.

The wife and I bought a couple Siberia v2's from ebay (cheapest place for them) and they're very comfortable. She has a tiny head and I have a huge head, and they fit us both well.


Another vote for Siberia's... love them. Have a pair of orange ones at home and the Diablo III headset (basically the same design) at work.
Thermaltake Shock One.
Quite cheap compared to the other brands, comes with a set of leather cushions and clothe cushions.
Decent sound quality as with any USB headset.

Steel framework inside the plastic covering so pretty sturdy.
Steelseries makes a nice headset

I'm loving my G35 too. The surround sound is awesome.

I currently have these:

Great for games, and awesome if you are like me and have a relatively big head, and wear glasses. They are SUPER comfortable, ears never get hot, and, the cushion totally goes around my ear and puts no pressure on my ears at all.

Good audio for games, mic works better than any other headset mic I've used.

That said they SUCK for music. I mean, they are noticeably not very good for music.
I use the 50 dollar turtle beach head set its comfy has good sound and is a good quality for the price. I have tried some of the more expensive ones but they are usually so bulky that after a few hours of wearing them my neck starts to hurt. be sure and keep that in mind for long sessions. i wasted 100 bucks on a pair i cant use because of it.
