Two things, although it is nice that it works on a bunch of systems, it really isn't necessary. The Turtle Beaches I had turned into my PC headset when my other ones broke and now I have neither and probably wont go back and forth connecting to to both the consoles and PC. I just need PC mainly. The other problem is it's $30 over budget for me, which might not sound a lot, but as it is I'm not to happy paying $100 as it is.
Well then I suggest you get a used 720+ or AX720
Then you can buy these velour earpads so you don't have wear someone else's, also because you said you don't like leather earpads.
As I said before, it is VERY important that you have surround sound and the ability to balance game/chat audio. You really don't want to get anything lower then this.
