HI,

First, I know nothing about headsets. I just know to plug them in and they work. I looked over the reviews and such but I can't make heads or tails of what things mean. I am hoping that someone or a group of someones could help me decide on a good pair that will work for me? I can only advise what I am looking for, which may or may not be all the info you experts may need but ask if it isn't.

Wired or Wireless. I don't have a preference, but if I have to replace batteries, I don't want it - if it's like a controller I can think about it.
I'd like it to be surround sound.
Over the Ear - I can't stand having anything in my ear or on my ear.
Good sound quality.
Good Mic - I will use it to play games with friends(usually on discord)...I may even get back into streaming.
Price - This is the hard part, I don't want to pay a lot. I am jobless with no income but I need a new pair as my current one is breaking (loose wire or something) - I don't really want to spend more than $100 but even that price point scares me in my current situation.
I don't care what store they are from as long as they are trustworthy.
I prefer new.

Any other questions you may have, please ask. Again, I know squat about headsets.
