I'm looking to upgrade my current headset.
Use-case:
  • PC and phone for videos and music mostly. Little bit of gaming.
Needed features:
  • wireless because I need to upgrade my phone soon and won't have a headphone jack after that.
  • wireless dongle to connect to my PC because my main PC does not have BT.
  • mic should be able to retract/fold away.
  • over-ear ear cups
  • volume control and mic mute control on headset
Budget:
  • $200 hard limit

Your needs are a bit at odds, a wireless dongle to the headset won't work with a phone, and if you don't have bluetooth then a bluetooth headset won't work on the computer. That is easily fixed though, simply get a bluetooth USB adapter for the computer.

Arctis Pro is good and has both bluetooth and a good transmitter for PC use but it's about $300.

Arctis 1 Wireless is 100 and has a USB dongle that looks to work for both PC and a phone (although not Apple it seems) https://www.amazon.com/SteelSeries-Arctis-Wireless-Headset-playstation-4/dp/B07X96DFR5/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=2NST6PGV8DJIC&dchild=1&keywords=arctis+pro+wireless&qid=1611863540&s=videogames&sprefix=Arctis+Pro+,videogames,432&sr=1-1-spons&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExUU5WSTUwT1QwMFZIJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMTMyOTkxM0ROQUxIMVVFOExNNSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNTg0MjA1M0pUQ1I0RThHSkVIVCZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU&th=1

HyperX Cloud MIX has bluetooth and wired connection.
