My head set was about 40-50 dollars. Some no name company i've never heard of, but once again, crystal clear mic and thumping bass. I can put my hands over the speakers and feel the bass. They get far more loud than i'll ever need. http://hothardware.com/News/Genius-I...aming-Headset/

I dont think either headset that we purchased will work on a 360, but my point is: Don't be afraid of the cheaper models. After listening to the $250 headsets at Bestbuy, and listening to my $50 headset, i honestly cant tell what makes the expensive ones $200 better.
I think it's the true 7.1 surround sound (which is a MUST if you want to beat the best on games like COD) that makes the difference. My old X41's, which I got from Buck, are freaking amazing.

As far as suggesting a pair right now, I would go with Razer Tiamat or Megalodon. They come with native amps, which is really nice.
