In the past, "gaming" attached to a product meant "let's slap on some LED lights, some slick graphics and sell cheaply made shit to fools." e.g. Razer keyboards with crappy Kailh mechanical switches.
Less true these days as some products with "gaming" on them are very good- many mice, for instance.
Still, it's a good practice to look at anything sold as "gaming" from a critical perspective. Ask what the "gaming" features are, and if these features are just buzzwords or acronyms rather than things that have been engineered across the industry for years, you're probably better off avoiding it.
Headsets specifically? Gaming versions are probably overpriced, worse preforming alternatives to a good quality headphone coupled with an Antlion Modmic.
Maybe inexpensive Senns (HD471, 569s) plus a Modmic.
