Hi all, this is my first foray into audio hardware and I don't know much, so please forgive me if I'm making outrageous/unrealistic demands.
I'm looking for headphones that:
-can be used for multiple platforms (PC, Switch, phone, PS4)
-is good for FPS gaming (like being able to tell where footsteps are coming from, I think this is 7.1 or something?)
-is good for listening to music/movies (doesn't need to be top of the line, though)
-possibly wireless (I will accept wired if it means I get all the other features)
-has volume control on the headset (but not on the cable if wired)
-has decent mic (used for comms, not recording, must not pick up on background noises or have echo)
I don't have a budget; I'd appreciate having a range of options but I understand being this specific likely raises the price point. I've seen terms like "open/closed back" and "warm sounds" but I don't have experience with what those are to have an opinion on them. I've read that it's often better to get good headphones and supplement them with a standalone mic, but I'm worried that a standalone mic will be too high-quality for my purposes. I game in a loud area and I don't wanna blow out people's eardrums when my dog decides to warn us the apocalypse is coming in the form of the mailman.
