Generally I'd go with the headset mike, but be aware of one
possible problem:  If you use a high-gain voice processor and
simultaneously monitor yourself with the headphones, there may be
some unintentional feedback from the headphones to the mike
causing distortion.  Either keep the mic gain down or the monitor
volume down and you'll be ok.
