I want a headset for two main uses - gaming and skype. I appreciate good sound quality, but two years ago just went with a wired Turtle Beach headset (didn't know of better options at the time). After some wear and tear, the cord is now pulled and frayed, and thus I needed a new headset. Upon checking out the latest gaming headsets, the idea for a WIRELESS headset became very attractive. I did a good amount of research, and after seeing/reading some positive reviews I purchased a Sony Pulse Elite. I now hate this headset, and now you can all please feel free to have a chuckle at my expense. :-)
Doing more research, I learned that some gamers use better quality headphones ("Sennheiser" is a name that comes up a lot) and attach a mic (like a Zalman Zm-Mic1) and some use a mixamp (like the Astro Gaming Mixamp). With this kind of setup however, it seems that a wire must run from both the attached mic, as well as the headphones to the mixamp.
My question - is there a good set of wireless headphones that I can attach a mic to, in order to use as a wireless headset for both gaming and Skype? Surround is also highly desirable.
I've combed through this form for a couple days, and couldn't not find this information.
Thanks very much for your help.
