So I have the Logitech G733 headset and I previously had the Steelseries Arctis 1 or 3, which I can wear relatively comfortably for an hour or 2, but I would like try a headset with cushions instead of a band resting on my head. So my specifications are (in order of importance) as follows:
1. Headset with head cushion and not strap/band. Needs mic.
2. Fabric Ear Cups. If a recommendation has PU leather that can be replaced with fabric, thats fine as well.
3. Wireless
4. Not gamer looking
5. Detachable mic would be nice, but not necessary

So far the Corsair VOID Elite looks promising, although a bit gamer-y.

Bestow you wisdom upon me, please.

Hey Guys

I am also in the market for a new gaming headset but would prefer one that also has Bluetooth so it can be used with my phone / traveling aswell. Currently have the Arctis wireless 1 which are good just a mission with the dongle, any recommendations ?

I would stay away from the Void's unless they have drastically improved the battery life.
Maybe my unit was just a potato but 6 hours was the most I got out of the battery with the Void Pro RGB's and thats with the RGB turned off.
Audio quality was decent for true 7.1 surround sound headphones, but mic was bad... not terrible, but not great either.
