Definitely not an 'on the go' headphone I wouldn't say. They're completely open, so the person next to you will hear almost as clearly as you do wearing them
As for mics, I've tried a few.
Zalman's ZM-MIC 1 worked pretty damn well, was a very clear mic, $12 on PCCG.http://pccasegear.com/index.php?main_pa ... ts_id=2885
I've just got a ModMic in the mail today
A bit pricier than the Zalman, but it's a mic on an adjustable boom which just feels better for me.
They're refreshing it at the moment, bringing out a new model, hence it shows sold out on http://www.modmic.com
