Since you're using these with both the PS3 and the PC, and given your budget, I'd consider the following:

  • Audio Technica ATH-AD700
  • Astro Mixamp
  • Zalman Clip-on Microphone

The headphones are widely regarded as some of the most outstanding for online FPS, and work well with the Dolby Headphone effect, which helps provide positional information, provided by the Astro Mixamp. The Mixamp will allow you to use the headphones and microphone with both your PC and PS3. All together it will also come in under your budget, and you'll have a great pair of headphones for listening to music, to boot!

Happy gaming,
