I have been looking into headsets myself.  Currently I have Astro A30's and I am happy with them, but I'm looking for an over the ear option as well.

The Two that I have been keeping an eye on are the Steelseries Arctis 5 and the HyperX Cloud 2.  

Here's a Tom's Guide headset review.  They have the Arctis 7 at the top, but it's pricey.  You get the same speakers in the 5 tho.

I'll probably get the 5's unless something deters me.  I'm waiting on an Amazon price drop.  They are currently 124.99, but I have seen them as low as 89.99.

Stay away from at least this TB headset; Earforce X07 Premium Headset. The head set has cracked twice on me where the highlight and the white mark is. They are a good headset, but that plastic plate is a piece of crap, not sure why they didnt put a steel piece there?

Seconding Sam's comment about build quality of Turtle Beach stuff. I've had multiple pairs and multiple occurrences of the very same thing in the same location as he shows.

Headphones are funny because everyone has a different interpretation of how things sound in their own head. Not being able to test drive headphones makes choosing the right ones even harder. If you can do it, try buying from a place that has a good return policy (Best Buy comes to mind). If you get some that you just don't like you've got an out.

Another thing to think about is closed vs open backed headphones. My TB's were closed. My A40's (I don't mind the wired and believe wired doesn't compromise sound quality like wireless) are open. The soundscape is fantastic.

For the record, I purchased the Dolby Atmos licence for headphones. Really happy with it. Not 100% if its available on the S though?

I went with something completely different but I had seen people talk about online. Being a bit cheap and I like listening to music I got a pair of Philips 9500s headphones (https://m.newegg.ca/products/N82E16826138190) for Christmas. So far they sound awesome. Great for listening to music too. They are open backed so someone sitting beside you will hear what you hear. I picked up a Vmoda boom Mic https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.amazon.ca/V-MODA-BoomPro-Gaming-Headset-Headphone/dp/B00BJ17WKK&ved=2ahUKEwiP-dXystXZAhULVK0KHQN3CUoQFjABegQIAxAB&usg=AOvVaw0K-kCLvJDXwyZ0v_b833xj that connects into the jack. So far I'm happy with the setup and it was relatively cheap too.

BOOM! I found one that's compatible with Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch and maybe PC if I end up streaming.

Ladies and gentlemen! I present you the arctis 3 from SteelSeries.

i was on a budget and for 87$ I think I couldn't go wrong.

NICE!! But are you sure they are compatible with the Xbox? I know you can plug it into the controller and get sound, but not sure about mic functionality?

I like them a lot!

So you were able to chat and all when playing? And the reason I am so curious is because this doesnt mention Xbox at all?
