I'd go for the Siberia V2 if these were your only options, I prefer having a set of regular headphones though.  What's your budget and what are you going to be using these on?  PC, Xbox, etc?

Just some quick suggestions:
 
Creative Aurvana Live!
http://www.amazon.com/Creative-EF0060-Aurvana-Live-Headphones/dp/B000ZJZ7OA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1363043811&sr=8-1&keywords=creative+aurvana+live
 
Samson SR850

Used Audio Technia AD700 (These have anemic bass)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B000CMS0XU/ref=sr_1_1_olp?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1363043897&sr=1-1&keywords=ad700&condition=used
 
If you're needing a mic:
 
http://www.amazon.com/Zalman-Zm-Mic1-Sensitivity-Headphone-Microphone/dp/B00029MTMQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1363043998&sr=1-1&keywords=zalman+mic
 
Or the Antlion Mod Mic.
 
The Siberiva V2's aren't bad, they have decent sound and the convenience of the built in microphone.  If you don't have a sound card, the USB sound card included with that version is a pretty decent alternative.

I agree with KetchupNinja. Creative Aurvana Live are pretty good headphones for the price. My friend has a pair and they sound pretty good. (Won't beat high end headphones of course but price and quality are quite good). I've also tried another friend's Siberia v2 and those are good options as well. Neither would be considered the last word in music quality but if you're mainly using it for computer gaming then these are both good values.  
 
I'd say you can't really go wrong with the Siberia but definitely look into other options such as the Aurvana before you make your final decision.

Hi, use the free 7.1 surround simulator called Razer Surround from the Razer website. It's good enough to make your HD202 great for gaming. I used that setup for Tomb Raider 2013, and it's excellent. But if you want punching bass and better surround, go with HD202 + Asus Xonar U3. 

Another thing that you should consider when buying the HD202 is the size of your ears. If your ears are wide, the HD202 is not for you.

I can be agree with you, but please, view my topic regarding a totally another option:
