Headphone / Headset recommendation

As I am not an expert in headphones / headsets I was thinking that maybe you can help me out. Yesterday, my old headset labeled for "gaming" broke (bad plastic) after 2 years. Now I am looking for a new pair.

As I am mainly a gamer I will use them on PC for games / listening to music. Some conditions for the headphones:

  1. Wireless as I have a problem with wires on headsets - I break them after stumbling on the wire...
  2. Comfortable for longer usages
  3. Can be audiophile headphones as I am up to try anything that is good in that price.
  4. A microphone recommendations in case of headphones, as I am using it to also talk (separate on desk)
  5. Price around 170 - 180 euro (190 - 200 $) for both headphones and microphone (or headset)
  6. Over ear as I hate in ear and on ear (not comfortable in my opinion).

If there is any suggestion you have for me please let me know.

Where are you located?

(only asking this as I need to figure out which location on PCPP will have the closest pricing data)

For a wireless gaming headset, I usually recommend the SteelSeries Arctis 7, Kingston HyperX Cloud Flight, or the Corsair Void Pro, roughly in that order. I have HyperX Cloud II and find them extremely comfortable. The Arctis 7 are supposed to have a bit nicer build quality and software, but a slightly worse microphone than the HyperX. The Void Pro is a cheaper option than the other two.

I'm not familiar with audiophile wireless headphones unfortunately.

Whichever one you get, make sure its wired. I've had nothing but bad luck with wireless Bluetooth headsets. The sound always gets cut off and gargled.
