This is my first time posting on these boards after spending countless hours trying to figure out what I want to buy (and coming up empty handed for most parts). Anyway, I'm by no means an audiophile, but I do value quality products and if I spend money on something, that something might as well be good.
Now, I mostly want this new piece of hardware for gaming / watching movies and listening to a song here and there. In the past I've mostly had gaming headsets, but those things keep dying on me despite the fact that I tend to take extremely good care of them. I've had a Steelseries Siberia v2, a Logitech g230, a CAL! (for about a week) and most recently a Creative Tactic3D Wrath (wireless).
The first 2 headsets all died after about half a year (the g230 had some atrocious cables that eventually gave in), the CAL would've been great sound wise, but the earcups were way too small and the Wrath was just... well, they weren't the most comfortable and the constant white noise just made me want to jump out of the window. Bottom line is, I want something better.
My #1 priority is comfort. I'm gonna wear these things for hours upon hours and comfort is by far and away the most important thing I'm looking for. It might be worth mentioning that the g230 had the best design of the 4 headsets I've had in recent years, as it had relatively large earcups my entire ear could fit into and all around it was just very well made (I'm sure its still considered mediocre at best by some of you, but for a rookie like me it was still great).
Sound is still important, but I'm using my on-board soundcard anyway so chances are I won't get magic out of even the best headphones unless I buy a dedicated soundcard. Lastly, I have no illusions about gaming headsets and that's not why I kept on buying them. Truth is that I wanted a microphone that was just a tad bit better than my current Zalman clip-on mic and unfortunately, here in Hungary it's pretty hard to buy anything decent in the microphone department unless you want to spend quite a lot of money on it.
My budget is around 90-100 euros ($125). I'd really appreciate it if you could give me at least a handful of recommendations, seeing as how most retailers around here don't exactly swim in decent headsets / headphones and many of the suggestions I've found on these boards were actually missing from those shops.
All help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
