Good headphones for a gamer?

DS (10) enjoys minecraft and watching minecraft videos (Stampy Long Nose anyone grin)

So he can indulge this passion without everyone else having to partake in Stampy's wisdom I am looking for a good pair of headphones. Ideally for gamers (i.e. they have a microphone as well) so he can use them on the x-box.

John Lewis has lots, but they are quite expensive (eek!). This is OK as it will be his main present, but I want to know that they're a good investment that will last.

Any advice gratefully received. Budget is up to £100. Ideally significantly less fgrin

Turtle headphones are fine, go in to Game and aks for advice.

These kind of ones

DS and all his mates have these

Dp and ds have turtle beach ones. Not sure of the exact models though <helpful>

Turtle beach ones are the best.

Well, according to my brother (22) and his mates anyway

I was chatting to a staff member in Game at week, and he recommended Turtle Beach. I think their basic came in at about £35.

Turtle beech. You get a decent guarantee on them as well.

They swallow batteries though apparently according to my son.

Another vote for turtle beach (is there actually any other kind, given that we've all recommended them?)

Brilliant, thanks all. So with those beachy turtle things blush can he plug the USB into a mac when watching videos?

Found this, you can plug in to a pc just have a look at the connector, sorry I don't have a mac.
