Hey friends,
I am looking for a gaming headset with a few specs that I have not been able to line-up.

Wireless and open back. Those two things together just seem to be very elusive...
Bonuses would be a flip up to mute mic and oversized for my big ears/head.
I found one set that met everything but I think it was like $2k or something. If anyone knows of a set that matches those parameters please let me know!
Thanks

I didn't know what opened means until now

Do they keep your ears cooler or something?

No its so that i can hear the fam or whenever someone talks to me. There is generally a major soundstage difference as well but thats not my aim with this set.

just get the pc38x, the wire that comes with it is a mile long and replaceable. I've never noticed it even existing.

has the flip up mic mute, open back, good sound-stage. Can also buy 25 of them for the price of those 2k ones =)

you pay a serious premium for any 'gamer' headphones (with mic), you'd be better off getting a cheap mic with a mic stand and a high quality wireless headset.
from my searching it looks like wireless + open back = not really a thing, i found "Sennheiser RS 185" but they're discontinued, maybe "Grado GW100"

Good luck!
