The Jabra Revo Wireless Headphones are extremely useful for what you are looking for. I used them personally for about 2 years and for $120 they were well worth it.
They are Bluetooth 4.0 and 3.5 mm jack compatible. It comes with a 12v/standard plug hybrid charged with two USBs on it, a nylon braided 3.5 mm jack with one elbow port, and a nylon braided micro USB cord.
To get the point these headphones are one of the few "enthusiast" grade headphones that are made for regular use. The sound is very compact and directed to the center of the ear, however it isn't uncomfortable as an on-ear pair of headphones. I've used them for gaming purposes as much as using them when having a two hour phone call.
Leading to my next point, the headphones connectivity are flawless (after a firmware update) and for making phone calls people couldn't tell the difference between my iPhone 6s or my REVO wireless. They can connect up to 30ft, but if your phone is on a elevated plateau, you can get it up to 50ft or 60ft.
There is a lot I missed about these headphones, however Toptenreviews has a full review on them that I found very useful.
The only downside to these is the lag the microphone quality is not anywhere close to a decent gaming headset. But you can easily find a $5 mic separate that can work easily with these headphones.
THats my recommendation
Great recommendation, but it makes me realize I have a couple more requirements/limitations. Namely over-ear headphones and non-wireless (getting fed-up of too many electronics that need charging).....digging myself a hole here....
