Beyerdynamic or audio-technica or Logitech?

So I’m looking at a headset to upgrade my gear and they have closed-back headsets and as this will be my daily driver work and play. I need one that I can wear all day long , without getting painfully ears wearing them all day long.
The main part would love to go full wireless but i don’t think my budget can go that high so as the budget goes 200 pounds maybe 300 max.
I don’t need a mic as I have a ModMic.
These will be work, playing games, movies and tv shows and music.
Can anyone help me im not expect to hear in audio but my gear could do with a good upgrade?
Maybe one feature would remove ear pads.

qudelix q5k - bluetooth and everything you need with trrs mic input

Headphones:
sony mdr1am2 - extremely comfortable NOT FOR COMPETITIVE FPS
or
beyer dt770 - not as comfy but good for competitive, pad swap can help comfort

these combos are a little less than 300 pounds.

a cheaper headphone option is Audio Technica m40x with Yaxi or ZMF pads for comfort. qudelix + ath + pads combo will be closer to 220 pounds.

Sorry was working all week so just show the comment now so what is this
qudelix q5k - Bluetooth and everything you need with this mic input?
Also is there any wireless option for closed-back headsets?
?
Just wondering if I save up 400 ponds would o get a much better headset?

Its a dac+amp device that connects to your computer by cable or to your cellphone by bluetooth; and then your connect your wired headphones to it.

If you are looking for a bluetooth headset, this is not the right place, no one is going to recommend that for sound quality, I may be wrong I dont know any good headsets.

Do more research on dacs, amps and bluetooth vs wired headphones. If all of this seems like its not for you, and want one single simple device just get the most expensive bluetooth logitech headset or hyper x cloud on amazon and you are set.

I the Razer BlackShark V2 or Razer Kaira Pro for Xbox - Halo Infinite
as for the other headsets you suggest they don’t have breather ear cups and I will be wearing them for more than 8 hours I think these might be the only ones as i cant seem to find any other with good mic to work from home.

hmm this got a bit buried.

So, your just looking for a casual headphone for regular use gaming and shows… is there a particular sound signature you are looking are @Umar_Abid ? I think if you know what kind of sound traits you are looking for it would help us narrow some headphones down for you to check out.

The other thing to note, is this for a console or a pc?

It may also help if you have a budget for a small amp dac unit… so it will open alot of doors to headphones.

If a work/play scenario is desired with emphasis on work functionality such as Active Noise cancelling and Bluetooth, Check out the BeyerDynamic Lagoon ANC. Just throwing out another option.

I bought these for work and to have a valid set to listen to at home and these are performing extremely well. I have them wired and connected to my desktop system right now and they sound great. I love em!

That said, I don’t game so if gaming is a requirement as well I am not sure how these would do in that capacity.

Well, the most important part is the sound stage and comfort. I read up on a lot of reviews on youtube and what my understanding 99 headphones my ears will sweat a lot so I will need a pair of headphones that can breathe during the long hours of use over 8 hours use.

Only hand pair of headphones that I have seen have breathe ear cups so that’s not that good as their only 2 pair of the company i have seen SteelSeries and razer all the others don’t seem to have breathe ear cups…

I do use pc but in the future, i may buy a gaming console but just now im on pc.

if your wanting a headphone that breaths then you want one that utilizes velour pads or a cloth type material and is open back.

hmm, just because a headphone has stage and comfort won’t make it passable. I can say the DT 990 as a recommendation in this case because it has large staging and comfort however, the treble is so ridiculously high it could potentially lead to ear pain just to give you an example. It’s best to know what kind of sound suits you.

It cant be open back as i like closed back as the fact its easier and less leakage of sound
