Best bang for buck headset

Currently looking for a nice headset around the $100AUD mark, to which i currently have the corsair 1500 and the sennheiser u320 (its on promotional sale atm so $90 cheaper)
Any suggestions?
It would be a bonus if the mic functioned for my ps3 also. (dont kill me its just gran turismo k?)
cheers

Corsair 1500 V2 is a solid choice, well happy with mine. And it works as a voice headset and mic on PS3, but not game audio - but it does work for game audio as well on the PS4 in case of future upgrades.

I do like the aestetic appearance of the corsair better, but quality of the components matters too
i say this because the senheiser base price is nearly double...

I bought a pair of Audio Technica ATH AD-700 for around that price and they sound lovely. Open backs, a bit large, but no complaints with the sound. Very comfortable and light on the head.

That really is stating the obvious but the price on seinheiser is a massive jump, and from what i see they mostly dont have mics since theyre only intended for listening.
Would love if your replies were more constructive rather than stating some short obvious fact and leaving questions up in the air.
For example you could have suggested a similar priced example, or you could do like you have in almost all the replies you've done towards me and make more questions than answers.
Other people in the thread have actually mentioned products and gave their opinion on it, which is actually helpful.

edit- Apologies for the necro in advance.

Actually Sennheiser offers as many different headsets (headset always includes a mic) as corsair, if you only count the gamercentric offerings, in a wide price range.

For a little bit more these are my preference. Kingston Hyper X Cloud Gaming Headset. You're based in Byron Bay so I don't really know any sellers around you. So yeah PCCG it is lol.
