I need a new headset recommendation

I am thinking of upgrading my setup, but I don't know what headset I should get! What headset should I get? I will take any recommendation from anyone.
Thanks,

Sennheiser PC37x. Assuming you are ok with wired these are the best of both sound quality output and input (mic). I've tested tons of headsets including using a modmic and these are by far better. Doing a comparative with people on the other side of Discord and Skype/VOIP calls and all felt the Sennheiser mic soundsed far better than all the others and it's noise cancellation was superb.

I would purchase the hyperx cloud 2- it's a great overall headset with a great mic, and superb sound quality with little bass and 7.1 surround sound for gaming.
Don't buy gaming headphones. Buy regular headphones, ones you like, and attach a ModMic or MiniMic to it. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-mini-mic
the new hyper x cloud flights. One of the best wireless gaming headphones
Absolutely love my hyper X cloud revolvers. They sound incredibly good for the price. The fit and finish is very nice also. Very comfortable.
I recommend the Logitech G231 Prodigy series!! I have a big head and other headsets come built with plastic extenders, as you know will quickly break if you got a decently large head. The G231 series headsets come with brushed metal extenders so they will not break nearly as easily. They have fabric ear cushioning that comfortably fit around your ear so there is no compression or irritation. They also have a threaded cord to help prevent damage from being cut, extensive rubbing, and bending over the time of use. I would prefer these gaming headsets over any other kind out there.
Ive tested alot of headsets and i have to say that the Asus ROG Centurion has earned its place at the top, you can literally make it sound however you want it to sound, i mean you can make it sound like a Logitech G933 or a Hyper X 2 or for music you can make it sound like a B&O H8 (Which i do own and can honestly say it gets extremly close) And the 7.1 for gaming i mean holy shit its good.
If you're looking for a gaming headset then then Sennheiser gsp 300 series or the gsp 350 if you want a removable cable and surround sound. But if your looking for just headphones then the Audiotechinca M40X are the way to go.
Curious, what did you end up picking?
for around 60 bucks theres the Audiotechinca M20x headphones, otherwise M50x all the way.
Akg k701, or k702, or k7xx with antlion mod mic, objective o2 amp, and 2013 astro mixamp. Cream of the crop for gaming or video/music editing.
Loving my new k7xx's I got last week. I'd bought HD650's before that and didn't like them, they weren't comfortable to me but the k7xx's are extremely comfortable and adjustable. You can buy a modmic to make it a "headset".

I also have both (K7XX’s were second hand) and I prefer the 650’s for gaming, but I have a friend who prefers the 7xx’s. All personal opinion. However it should be noted that both his 7xx’s and mine have a squeak in the left ear revolving joint when you move around, does yours have that?
I think these came down to $119 last drop. Worth every penny!!!

Pro tip : don't buy a gaming headset, they're trash. Buy audiophile headphones, better sound quality that will make your gameplay much more enjoyable

Mostly true, but there are exceptions. for example, the Beyerdynamic and Sennheiser headsets are based off of Audiophile headphones. I used AKG K712 and K612 for three years each, and the K612 was one of the strongest values I’ve seen... until the PC37X came along.

Check out the reviews of the Sennheiser PC37X before writing it off. $20 cheaper than the AKG, mic included, more “standard” ergonomics and reliably pretty comfortable, based off of the HD 500 series drivers but with its own tuning.
Like led? Go steelseries. Just don't buy the wireless one
Don't even worry about buying a headset, they are garbage. Go straight for a pair of decent headphones.

Take that headset, add a mic, make it black and add a little more sub-bass and sense of soundstage, and you get the https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-sennheiser-pc37x-gaming-headset
I think is the HyperX Cloude Alpha
