Hello, I'm looking for new headphones to use on my PC.

They will be used for a mix of casual media consumption, as well as casual and competitive gaming.

My criteria;

Must be wireless with minimal latency
7.1 Surround Sound for competitive games
Dolby Atmos support
Comfortable for 5+ hours in a single session
Under £300

I also have preferences of it being simple in design, only black/grey. I do not want bright "gamer" red headphones, for example.

My current Headset is the Logitech G933, but I've been wanting a new headset for a while, but been unable to find one that stands out to me.

I will also be fine with earphones, but I don't believe their drivers are large enough for what I'm looking for.

Any questions, just let me know.

Thanks in advance!

Issue with surround sound and Atmos for headphones, it's impossible for those to exist natively in a headphone with two drivers.

Everything would be virtualized by the sound card and drivers.

You can get the Dolby Atmos program from the Windows store.

For headphones, there are tons of them in your price range, but without actually listening to them yourself you won't be able to pick one out and know if you like one better than the other. Just do a search for recommended headphones in your price and read some reviews, see what you may like based on your sound preferences.
