Have you looked into purpose-built ones like Corsair's new model (recently reviewed here) or Logitech's G9/G900?
They're not going to have the sound of a high-quality pair of cans, but (at least regarding the G9, which I have) they're still good, they have nice bass, quality mics, and are built like tanks.

2) They give you better positional audio, which is good for shooter gaming.
