Headset recommendation $150-200 USD cap

DVA
 Share

Hey guys, so as the title says, I'd like a headset recommendation. 

Budget is $150-$200. Needs to be an all-rounder, if anything it's used more for Cinematic gaming and movies. (ie no gaming with yelling to get to point A or B and so on)

 

I'd really love to hear about what headsets you use and how you feel about it, or any recommendations you may have.

 

Criteria:

Over-ear or Openback are both good, no preference. 

Microphone included is preferred but not needed. 

Wireless (bluetooth) is definitely preferred, but if I must get wired for the best quality, then heck it why not

Doesn't need RGB.

Cloud 2's are always a good route in that budget, but maybe look at getting a mod mic and a fair pair of headphones?

Real happy with my Logitech G933's, good for 10+ hours playing Ark while using Discord for voice chat.  Comfortable, can turn off RBG and everyone says they sound great on the other end.  Wireless.

I have honestly been hearing a lot from Hyper X's headsets lately and it seems to be great. Definitely considering this. I've never looked into mod mics as an option. Is it a simple plug and plug, or how does it work exactly? I understand it gets paired with your headset, but I've never used one personally.

I've heard mixed reviews on it. I looked into it recently due to the price slash on it over the weekend. The biggest flaws I saw were these two:

1. Mic quality seemed rather low, especially compared to Sennheiser's Game One headset. 

2. The headset seemed "loose" as it fell off a lot of peoples' heads. May have just worn it wrong though tbh.

Basically, though it will be another cable to manage. Most just clip it along their headphone cable

Thanks. What brands are the most dependable in this area? Sorry, like I said, never considered it so I don't know which ones to consider/look at. 

Wire management is no problem for me :)

Generally you'll just want to look at the Antlion ones. 

 

If you do want an all in one approach the clouds are very comfortable, sound fine and have a decent microphone
