First thing - while a budget is good, what you're asking for is a bit of a no-man's land. What I mean by that is, if you actually want so spend around $800 for a gaming headset, your options are a bit limited.
Thankfully, that means that you can very easily get away with spending less!
This setup should be able to work directly or through cheap adapters with everything you have. No DAC or amp needed strictly for the headphones.
But more importantly, the X2HR pretty much hit that 'gaming' featureset of just enough detail, just enough bass, and oodles of soundstage with great imaging.
The BoomPro as well is an absolute knockout for the price, especially given how well it works with the X2HR.
What's more, the combo is lightweight and extremely comfortable.
The only real downside is that they're open. Crank them to immersional volume levels and people nearby will hear them, and at normal volumes you're going to hear your surroundings.
For that, you can look at Beyerdynamic's MMX 300 for $279, also known for comfort and quality.

Mentioned it in my first comment.
It's the V-Moda BoomPro mic
And for a "gaming mic" it's a class above every gaming headset mic available. The level of clarity in this mic is top tier.

I'm not sure what you're asking. The whole thing is a long cord that you plug into the headphones with an inline boom. It's not wireless in any way. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BJ17WKK/

I didn't know there was an updated version either. I have two sets of the SHP9500 with V-MODA-BoomPro-Microphone It is a good combo. I have been casually considering getting some closed headphones. I want to see if I'm missing bass on some of the games I play.

<$100 Closed back w/ detachable 3.5mm cable?
Looking for a good entry level set of headphones that I can use with the V Moda BoomPro Mic for video conferencing, calls, as well as music and games.
Obviously needs to have detachable 3.5mm cables to work with the mic.
Would love excellent sound isolation and/or ANC features for office spaces.
I'm no audiophile but I want it to be around as good as the sony mdr 7506 and also would prefer a "studio" or "neutral" type tuning, with clear mids and no "bass boost" or raised sub levels (I listen mostly to jazz).
Also important would be comfort (lush, deep ear pads and/or easily upgradable to aftermarket ones)- will be wearing these at work throughout the day and my current work headset hurts my ears after an hour.
Would prefer around $100 USD or less.

Yes it comes with a splitter included or it can be ran with a single plug. Check the pics in the Amazon link to see the adapter included.

OP could get the VModa boompro mic for $30 and the mic quality is great. I bought mine at Best Buy with a 2 year $10 warranty. (Another option is ModMic but it is more expensive and has more polarizing reviews.)
My only 2 small gripes with it is the volume/control clip is in an annoying position & when you mute it on the clip, it makes party chat on xbox echo off my mic but I use the stereo adapter on my controller to mute my mic so it doesn't matter to me.

The V-MODA mic wouldn't work with them?

I'm pleased to tell you that it works exactly as we'd hoped! It sounds fantastic. I bought this to use with my Xbox: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BJ17WKK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
And the other person in my party said I was extremely clear and easy to hear. I'm really, really happy with how this turned out!

Good job on the list, the 3600 with a 2070 super is an excellent combination. What I recommend is scrapping the cooler and the headphones and getting some better ones instead. The Philips shp500 headphones are amazing. What you do is you also buy a plug in microphone like this and you plug it in where the aux cable goes.
You get much better audio quality.
1 points • CrazyDave48
The mic would sound a lot better if you use something like THIS with a regular headset but the built in mic on the controller is passable.

This will replace your current cable on your headphones. No extra wires or cables will be needed.

I just found a workflow for the 2nd headset. It basically works with every headset. I purchase this cable + Micro.
Will test it in the next days and report to you. I'm quite confident.

Pair these with a v-moda boom mic and you have an amazing headset.

If you're still in the market, I'd highly, highly recommend this one. Bought it a few months into lockdown and my friends all say it sounds like I'm speaking through a desktop mic. Works perfect with my XM4s.

i have a question. if you had a pc with the mic and headphone 3.5 jacks next to each other on the front of the pc case, would this work with it? the spacing looks identical so if i was to buy a product similar to this, https://www.amazon.com/V-MODA-BoomPro-Microphone-Gaming-Communication/dp/B00BJ17WKK . would it work if i connected it to the airplane adapter that’s connected to my pc?

The best combo for the price. Been using for years and better than gaming headphones.

I don't think you can use the bluetooth mic while using a wired connection. However, you can buy a cable like this one with a mic attached to it.

Looks like the price went back up unfortunately :( It was $110 earlier today.
And yup, the headphones have a 3.5mm removable cable port on the left ear cup. You would just plug in the vmoda boom pro, which has a boom mic just below the end you plug into the headphones. Other end would go into the controller. You want this guy
A cheaper option could be to go with the Philips shp9500, the little brother so to speak of the X2HR. You can use the same mic with them.
Also take a look at the massdrop pc37x. Excellent open back headphones with a mic attached. The included cable terminates in separate mic and headphone jacks so you would need an adapter to plug into the controller.

I have the xm3s and only had this issue with modernwarfare. But if you use the cable you have sound from both apps. the only problem is you can't use the mic from the headsets it self. I bought the v-moda boom pro, it's an aux cable with a mic and it works perfectly. This way you can use it as a normal gaming headset or turn the headphones on and use the noicecanseling.

Oh okay thats probably fine for my uses then
do you know if theres a port for something like this to plug into? https://www.amazon.com/V-MODA-BoomPro-Gaming-Headset-Headphone/dp/B00BJ17WKK
Edit: nvm, looks like theres ways of modding it to make the plug detachable but it otherwise isnt natively. Ill look for a desktop mic
1 points • --FuckYouSpez--
I was specifically referring to something like this, that you would then plug into your headphones, not sure if the Bose headphones you refer to have the correct line in. There are cheaper off-brand versions (I use one).
You can also use a stand-alone mic but I'll defer to others to make a recommendation since I am not an expert in that.

My best guess is that it has to do with the possible grounding issue. Since you are trying to split the output audio and input mic into 2 different devices, it is probably confusing the controller. Or it could be the way a mic/output splitter is wired as well.
Does your sony headphones have a removable cable that is standard 3.5mm on both ends? If so then I suggest getting the VModa mic to streamline your setup and increase the mic quality for the sake of communication and the ears of your friends/teammates.
If the headphone's cable is not removable (you could just mod it yourself if have any soldering experience) then i also suggest just upgrading the whole setup of audio to something like a combo of the phillips shp9500 with the VModa Boom pro i mentioned above.
I've never tried to do such with a mic/audio y splitter before

Honestly though, you're putting way too much emphasis on audio performance. There are many other factors that are miles more important like mouse control, reflexes, etc. Also, don't discount the recommendations of people who don't play CS:GO or aren't above silver; games are pathetically low in terms of how demanding they are (all you need is decent imaging and you're fine for audio)
2 points • ForgotMySafewordHelp
I'd second the Phillips SHP9500 suggestion. That plus a V-Moda BoomPro is probably one of the best value headsets you can get at that price. The sound you'll get from the 9500's is going to be better than most all in one gaming headsets at that point. Keep in mind the 9500's are open back though, so if you need a bit of noise isolation, they won't work.
2 points • spicedpumpkins
Headphone junkie here.
Not bad for the price.
A few things you should be aware of:
- The "7.1 surround" is SIMULATED and depending on game can sound very weird especially if you are in a game with a lot of directional sound and you turn quickly in game. Sometimes it can be really jarring.
For just a little more you can blow these cans out of the water. The following setup will be above average for gaming and also do double duty for music listening which the HyperClouds are not very good at. Note, the Philips do not have the simulated 7.1

Does QC35 II 3.5mm headphone jack to attach an inline microphone?
I have an older QC35 and it has the 2.5mm jack on it. I want to get a inline microphone and I found one but it has a 3.5mm connector and I can't find any sort of adapter.
Does the newer QC35 use the 2.5mm or 3.5mm wired connector.
This is what I'm looking at:

Yeah mic is bluetooth only, would need a separate mic (eg: https://www.amazon.com/V-MODA-BoomPro-Microphone-Gaming-Communication/dp/B00BJ17WKK) to make use of cabled connection.

What I've been using is just taking real headphones (spend as much as comfortable I've been using these and they are great)
And then getting a mic for them
Sounds amazing, super comfy, and the same price as a high end headset. (Do have to plug it into the controller though).
Used to have to get a steel series replaced every few months and got sick of it.

With V-MODA BoomPro https://www.amazon.com/V-MODA-BoomPro-Microphone-Gaming-Communication/dp/B00BJ17WKK
This has been a winning combo for me.
I have a large head and these are big on me. I really like the pressure they have and the sound is amazing unless you are a bass hound. The bass can be adjusted up in most equalizers.

This V-moda Boompro seems to come with splitter?
And great pick on HD599, just connect and enjoy. Should sound good as it is.
