Christmas Prezzie Wireless Headset Advice Please :)

Hi, I'm searching for a wireless headset for my partner for Christmas. He currently has a wired set but the wires getting in the way and tangled up annoy him and he doesn't like not being able to walk very far with them on.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good headset I could look into?

What I'm looking for is:

  • Comfortable for long hours usage.
  • Nothing too heavy and chunky.
  • Good Mic Quality. (Main use is for Chatting)
  • Wireless.
  • Able to be used whilst charging.
  • Ideally £50 - £60 budget but could stretch to £70 - £80 if worth it.

Now I have been researching myself and found the Logitech H800 and the Turtle Beach PX3 headsets.

The H800's look small and lightweight however I've seen some reviews saying they get hot on the ears, bluetooth connection drops out often and the batery life doesnt live up to the 6 hours it boasts. There are a lot of mixed reviews so I'm not sure.

The PX3's look comfortable enough and if he wanted he could use them playing on his xbox too. I've heard the battery life of 10 hours is good and they have good range and connectivity. What I have read though is that people are saying they will break within a year, so I'm not sure on them for that reason.

Thanks for any suggestions/advice in advance!

Bex
