Hello, I am in the market for some new headphones/headset for my computer and Laptop.
I am currently stuck with some crappy earbuds what are awful for gaming etc.

I was looking at the StealSeries line, however, I want to see some other opinions on them along with options you would go for at the £100 ($125) mark. PLEASE do not send links to American sites as most of the times the deals and availability DO not transfer over to England.

 

I would rather have a detachable microphone and it doesn't matter if it is Wireless or Wired.

 

I mainly play games like csgo etc so I think it is about time I get a new, decent pair of headphones - I will be taking these to college as well (when they re-open) so the option to remove the cable like steelseries or non-bulky headphones will be nice.

Have a great day and remember to stay safe and ask anymore questions if needed!

I like my HyperX Cloud II, cheap, solid, comfy and good. They also have the detachable mic you wanted and they work with phones as headset.

The HyperX Cloud II's are still well regarded, AFAIK.

You have to tell us how much you want to spend. Razer have nice products and also consider the creative sxfi. All good for fps,

But all at 120€

My favorites at this price point is the cooler master mh 752 which is basically a spiritual improvement on the cloud 2.

Feel free to send me a DM for further or general questions.

120€ is about £100 - and I am willing to spend all of that if needed, but, I am just looking for the best value pair I can get without wasting money. I can go a bit extra but I don't really want to.

I have heard about those, however, all the reviews I have seen about them say they are a must buy at a very different price point of around £60 - £80. 
I can only see them on Amazon for £94 as everywhere else are out of stock. 
Just wanting to now if these are worth it or should I go for something else like the Hyperx Cloud 2 as I have heard other people say that they are not worth it at that price.

These days cloud 2s aren't worth MSRP. If you already have a mic grab a takstar pro 82 its the mh 752 but without a mic basically

Okay, thanks for your help - I will do some further research!

Not really. Also Razer has half-off sales for all email-subsscription members every few months for all peripherals.

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.
