I HIGHLY recommend the Plantronics RIG 800 series headphones. I love them so much I have two pairs (one for PC/PS4 and one for PC/Xbox). I know Plantronics isn’t a cool mainstream gaming brand, and they look kinda weird, but these are the best gaming headphones I’ve ever used.
The earcups have a similar feel to the Steelseries headphones. They breathe really well for closed-back headphones and they don’t attract hairs or dust like the fuzzy cloth earpads will.
They have a suspension band design and they are super light. Put those two together and you have basically no pressure on the top of your head.
Clamping force is just about right for my head. I wear glasses and they don’t bug me.
I thought the ear cup adjustments were kinda gimicky before I bought them, but it actually works out really well. You set it to a general height you need, and then all the fine tuning is done automatically with the headband. You never need to adjust your earcups because they can’t really get knocked out of place.
Adding to the earcup, but a different point. Another plus to this design is that there are no creaky cheap plastic joints that a lot of gaming headsets suffer from. They do allow some slight movement of the earcups so that they can conform to the shape of your head better, but the material is such that they don’t really make any noise.
These are plug-and-play with PC. You don’t need to download any drivers for them. All of the controls are on the headset, including master volume, voice/in-game audio mix, and equalizer presets. Mic mutes automatically by swinging it to the up position.
The battery life is great too, since there isn’t any fancy lighting on them. I can usually go several days without needing to recharge.
Sound quality is awesome for wireless gaming headphones. Mic quality is relatively good but not the best. If you’re looking to stream, buy a dedicated mic. If you’re just gaming, these are perfectly fine.
The only complaint I have about them is the chat/in-game audio mixer doesn’t work super well. The Astro Mixamp Pro works much better in that aspect (and works in Linux), but then you lose the wireless functionality too, and Astro is super expensive.
P.S. - When I say PC, I mean Personal Computer, not Windows. The HS model I have verified works in Linux (Solus and Fedora, but should work in any mainstream distro).
For PC & PS4 - black/blue (these are the ones I’ve personally used with Linux)
For PC & Xbox One - plain black (should work, but I haven’t verified)
Just PC - black/gold (should work, but I haven’t verified)
