My second $20 headset has died on me and since I have built a high end computer recently I think its time for a high end gaming headset. My budget is $200 but can go over if need be.

Get a decent headphone amp, and some top of the line cans (from Massdrop) and you should be all set

You know any good headphones with backs, I got birds and I like to block out there noise.

I have been checking out this headset for a while and I would like your opinion on it if you don't mind. [ https://steelseries.com/gaming-headsets/arctis-pro-gamedac#arctis-pro-gamedac ]

I don't really care for the mic because I plan on getting a separate one in the future

Probably wouldn't get that, just get a set of decent closed-back cans and an external mic (like a Blue Yeti or something similar) and you should be all set

For the mic, if you prefer a headset one, I like my V-moda Boompro. I've not had any other mics to compare directly, but from what I've heard it's quite good quality when I'm in a discord or game chat.

Thanks for the info but I just care for audio I will be buying a high tier mic to use
