When it comes to Headsets M HyperX Cloud has an amazing price to performance ratio and great customer service (replaced my first pair easily and quickly). But I think I'm gonna transition into a good pair of Sennheiser headphones and a separate microphone though (It just makes everything sound better).

I use the Sennheiser HD 180 Over-Ear headphones. they aren't the best but they are pretty good and quite comfortable. Also it's very cheap.

I use the Steel Series gaming headphones. The sound quality is nice and they are comfortable if you normally play for long hours.

I've been using a Logitech G35 wired surround sound headset. They perform brilliantly: Games, Movies, Music and voice controls.  The ear pads are easy to replace as they age.  7.1 Dolby capable.  Durable and comfortable.

Right now I'm using the HyperX Cloud Headsets for everything I do. I plan on switch to my Sennheiser HD6XX that I bought from Massdrop because they sound way better and I don't use the microphone that much anyway. If anything I'll just buy a dedicated Mic in the future for voice chat but for now it should be alright.

I've been using a Plantronic GameCom 780 for the last year. This is probably the most comfortable headset I've owned.

Agreed, they are nice and comfortable.  I have had mine for ages.  Managed to get it going in W10 with some (beta) drivers from Plantronics I found whilst trawling the net for a solution, as they didn't work at all when I first upgraded to w10.  The drivers sorted it absolutely fine.  They are usb so don't use your onboard soundcard.

For a change when I  am not needing a mic, at the moment I am using my old Sennheiser202HD stereo headphones plugged into my GE62VR 7RF's mic jack, as I'd seen in a review somewhere that the On-board audio was fairly good through stock headphones. I am pretty happy with it.

 I don't have speakers at the moment - my long lasting and ever faithful (series I) Creative T40 2.0 speakers have the volume pot failure so I may see about getting that fixed.  Other than that I thought they were pretty good and got hard use on PC and PS3.

For consoles I use the Astro A50s (latest generation) and for PC I currently have the Razer Man'o War wired.  Both sound great, though I still think the sound on the 1st generation Astro A50s were better.  The best sounding headset I ever had was the Turtle Beach Elite 800, however no boom mic created issues (people said I sounded like I was talking through a tin can).  

I would like to try the Steelseries Siberia 840s.  A buddy of mine said those sound awesome.  I do think wired sound better though, the Astro A40 would be a great way to go if you don't mind wired headsets.

Further to my above post, I bought a pair of Asus ROG Orion PRO headphones. 
They make use of the 3.5 MM jack although they come with the asus "Spitfire" USB dongle which does all the fancy stuff. 
As it is I am using them with Virtual surround via nahimic, and they perform just fine. 
I wanted a pair I could plug in to the laptop to make use of the sound capabilities, rather than a USB dongle/sound card.

Looks like my Plantronics GameCom 780's will be going on ebay.

These Orions are a slightly tighter fit but I would say comfort is on a par with my GameCom 780's

I have the HyperX Cloud headset:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0153XL4V2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_ep_dp_vohiAbZX5VJ7V

They're comfortable after many hours of wearing them and have served me well for the 2 years I've owned them with daily use.  I've also used them as headphones for my music as they are well insulated and the dual mic/audio extension is detachable so you can also use it as a phone headset!

I currently have the HyperX Cloud. It's one of the most comfortable headsets I've ever owned and the audio is nice.

+1  Me too.  I agree completely.

I just use a logitech g430 set. Not too pricey and they do the job of creating a surround experience reasonably well.

I'm still using my old trusty Logitech G35. They're outdated a bit but they work perfectly so I haven't had a reason to switch to something new yet.

Since my snowed-in self fails to see the edit button I'll quote: if you also want to listen to music and want to use just 1 set of headphones, don't get these.
My Sennheiser HD 500 series do a MUCH better job at reproducing music than the 7.1 g430 set. (Which on the other hand is a perfect budget option for gaming and movies)

Well aggravatingly the right headphone died on the Orion Pro headphones last sunday, so back to Amazon they are going (after Christmas).
Pretty peeved as they only lasted just over 3 months which is a bit crap.

To be fair to Amazon they refunded straight away and have given me until 18th January to return them.

In their place I have ordered and received yesterday a set of Steelseries Arctis 5 headphones.  They are more comfortable than the Orion pros (if that were possible) 
Ironically I am using them via usb at the moment but have a 3.5 adapter in the box.

Thus far (24 hours in) I must say they are leagues ahead of the Orion Pros.  They were also cheaper.  I nearly bought the 7 series but decided on the 5's after seeing reviews and I wanted to keep costs down. 
I have decided to keep the Gamecom 780's as a backup pair:bonk:

I use the Logitech G230 (it was on a huge sale)
I have tried two different pairs of Logitech headsets, one wired, one wireless.  They were overpriced, uncomfortable after an hour, and the wireless headset battery was useless.  It worked for about six months, then started having problems charging and eventually died.
Looking at reviews for the various models, it is difficult to choose.  Older headsets have more reviews and newer headsets haven't been used long enough to have many helpful reviews.
I check various computer gaming suppliers for what they sell, how many have bought each model and what rating they give it, reading all of the reviews.
The competition is fierce and as new headsets are coming out all of the time, it isn't easier.
Comparing the features can narrow down the range, but there is still way too many.  I think that big price reductions are helpful, so I'd be tempted to get anything from a huge sale myself.

I currently use the Corsair Void RGB, very comfortable, light weight and the battery lasts long enough for a full day of gaming.


Been using the Corsair Void RGB, too, but I prefer the USB instead of wireless. the cord is long enough I don't have to worry about pulling it and I'm not all-in on wireless peripherals yet myself.

I'm currently using a Logitech G35. My friends gave it to me, and i've been using it since. There is nothing much to say about it. Got 7.1 surround with high quality sound and Comfy earpads :)
There is one downside, and that must be it's a USB headset. It does not cooperate with my PC, and do disconnect sometimes.

For a wireless headset I recommend Astro A20. There are two versions one for Xbox and one for Playstation; both will connect to Windows PC.

Bowers & Wilkins P5. It is not a gaming headset, but is excellent in sound quality.
