[SOLVED] "Headset" that doesn't go over the head, or alternative. Suggestions?

So, having had to use my Logitech G933 headset way more than I used to, I'm starting to notice some things.

It sounds great, and audio-wise, I have no complaints, but, even though the headband is well padded, I start to become very aware of it after a while. So, I'm looking for alternatives.

One friend suggested this, referred to as "neckband headphones" although it's not in stock and looks like it's not coming back:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000KW2SQC

I can't seem to find much in terms of other neckband headphones, though.


Another suggestion was this wireless neckband bluetooth earbuds:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07YZ7H21S

I'm not quite clear on how to get those to work with my PC, though.


Thoughts/suggestions/guidance? Wireless preferred. I'm in the US.

You can use any bluetooth headset/phone with a computer same way as with a phone. If you don't have a bluetooth adapter you can get a USB one they are cheap. Look for the latest version and with aptx low latency so the audio is not lagging behind the video much.

Can’t you just get comfier (lighter) headphones?
