Thanks for all the input everybody. I think I'm going to go for the Sony Pulse headset that Fadi recommended. They're more expensive than the older model, but I like the design, and they connect to any MP3/smartphone as well, which the old model doesn't do.
Thinking about getting that as well. So i can use it for my vita and phone for music. I just can't find a buyer for my current 1st gen sony headset lol. If I cannot find a buyer I will just go the route Fadi just mentioned and get this: www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATH-M30-Professional-Closed-back-Headphones/dp/B00007E7C8/ (or this http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-ATHM40FS-Precision-Studio-Headphones/dp/B0002D03ZW) and keep my current headset for ps3 till it gives up on me.(still works like i bought it yesterday)
If you have the money, go with Astro A40's. Amazing sound quality along with them being compatible with PS3, Xbox 360, PC and can also be used as standard headphones for your phone or iPod.
They may break the bank, but they are worth it.
