excuse my lack of details, im not well versed in the world of audio. Gaming and listening to music, over ear, balanced, wireless is a bonus but not required

If you can swing an extra $30 or so, consider the Audio Technica ATH-M40X. They're well built and are arguably some of the best headphones you can get for under $100.

 

If you want to look around at some options, Audio Technica, Sennheiser, and Beyerdynamic are all usually pretty solid. You might not find a ton from Beyerdynamic in that price range though. AKG might have some decent stuff too.

 

I should've asked initially. Are you looking for something with a built in mic (a headset)? Or strictly headphones?

In that case, check out the HyperX Cloud II https://amzn.to/2Y8NmVw or the SteelSeries Arctis 3 https://amzn.to/2JJcp8o

 

Alternatively, you could get the ATH-M40X https://amzn.to/2JIPWZi and grab a dedicated mic along with it.

If you just want a cheap mic for now, maybe get a lav mic (https://amzn.to/2SpZg8k). You could clip it to your shirt or the headphones and use that with them.

Or if you'd rather just jump right into a nicer mic, I've heard good things about the Samson Meteor (https://amzn.to/2Y8NKmW). It can stand on its own, or you can get a microphone arm such as this one from Neewer (https://amzn.to/2XWxDF7), then screw the microphone onto the end of it.

If you're willing to use an external mic and spend a little bit more, get the Sennheiser HD 4.40. They sound very good (for Bluetooth headphones in that price range, anyway), look very professional, are quite comfortable, and have good battery life.

 

But yeah, the internal mic isn't very good. It's passable, sure, but maybe just drop $30 or so on something like a Neweer NW700.
