Yesterday my headset died (Astro A50) the charging cable got really hot when it was charging. bought a new cable but the headset doesn't want to turn on anymore so I guess it died :/
 
Now I am looking for a new headset, the headset should be:
- Comfortable
- Durable
- Good microphone
- Good sound
- 7.1 surround?
 
Wireless would be nice but the other points you see above are more important to me, same as (macro) buttons on the headset not needed but it's nice to have.
 
I mainly use the headset for CS:GO and I listen to music a lot (so good sound is required :D)
 
These headsets look good:
Corsair Vengeance 2100

Im using the Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 and I really like it

 

now Im not an expert at this but Id recommend it

Needs 3 inputs though, 1 USB, 1 for sound and 1 for the mic

 

Its pretty comfort, the sound is great, the mic is also pretty good and it has a configurable bass

 

 

oyea and you can put it on your xbox aswell but I never used that

I have Logitech g430 usb 7.1 headset. The only drawback I see is that playing Rust for 8 hours straight makes my head feel uncomfortable.

Syberia V2 is the best price-quality for a headset IMO, it just fits so comfortably around my ears and is comfortable enough for long gaming sessions.

 

And it just costs 60 euros...

Any audiojack headset will be very limited in terms of volume.

If I turn my headset's volume up all the way, it's basically earrape

If that's the case it's already earrape when it's on low volume. :D

I feel the need to correct this,  because that is just a plain wrong statement.

 

Why would you even think that- what do you think the DAC in USB headsets does?

It's basically an audiojack headset except soldered to the soundcard, just because they are USB doesn't mean the 1's and 0's go into the earmuffs.

If you guy buy high impedance headphones, obviously your phone won't be able to drive them properly.

 

Bob, what the hell, speakers are analog driven, if anything you have LESS volume restriction by using your own soundcard.

There is a reason high quality headphones have audio jacks... I'm not evening right now, that statement was bottom tier qualtiy.

I was mostly talking low-end. But sure, let me rephrase that.
Any audiojack headset will depend on your sound card on a lot of factors.

On my Logitech G430 the mic is unbearably quiet when using my 3.5mm jack but it works fine with the usb sound card provided. All standalone microphones I've had have had (wat?) this problem as well.

Dunno the audio jack seems fine and loud, either way I definitely don't want to experiment with it anymore and will just stick to USB.
