Have you considered the Razer Blackshark? I mean it's huge and all, but it really isn't as heavy as it looks. It actually sounds pretty good, with or without Razer's Surround software (Since you're using this for gaming, you're better off downloading their Surround software, it basically improves the already amazing sound quality, and since you're buying the headset, you get a FREE upgrade to Surround Pro).
I can't say it's 100% noise cancelling, but it certainly does block out most of the external noise when you're in-game.
The boom microphone is pretty clear (I tested the mic quality using Steam's settings) and is detachable (It comes with a small peg to plug the hole it leaves. I personally found this useful for my on-the-go music listening).
It uses the pretty much standard issue 3.5mm jack, a single one, in case you want to take it outside or something, but it does come with a splitter cable, in case what you're using it for doesn't support the single audio + mic style.
It goes for at the least $100 on Amazon right now.
No... The surround definitely doesn't make it any better. And if it's anything like other Razer headphones, then it's overpriced through the roof. There are better headphones for their budget.
