I recently bought the Logitech G930 ($100) headset for gaming and music and I can honestly say it's the best headset I've ever used.
Circumaural and fits to ear shape (it isn't circular like most headsets — something that causes a lot of discomfort after an hour or two of wearing it)
Dolby 7.1 surround sound that sounds almost just as good as sitting ...
I'm going to recommend the baby brother of Adam's answer: the Logitech G430.
Regular price is around $75.
It fits over the entire ear (and isn't circular). I can wear it for hours at a time with no discomfort.
7.1 surround sound. It works very well in both games and movies.
Noise canceling microphone. Team mates in games mentioned that the clarity is ...
I have a Logitech G930 headset, which I am quite happy with.
On the plus side:
Good quality speakers
Good quality microphone
Good wireless range
Microphone mute button on the headset
Microphone automatically mutes when folded up
Has a practical base with a long wire for charging with a connector of better quality than most other micro USB chargers.
On the ...
You might consider just adding a microphone to your setup (i.e. "convert" your headphones to a headset), like this lapel microphone from Zalman. That's what I've bought to use with my Sennheiser HD558's to great effect, and it costs around $9.
You could also purchase a USB sound system, like this Creative X-Fi external pre-amp and sound system, which you ...
Not so easy to find Gaming headset with 600ohm. I know the Sennheiser HMD 26-II-600-X3K1 but it's out of your range.
600ohm is better but it doesn't mean that you cannot use lower impedence headset (http://www.cnet.com/news/headphone-buyers-heres-what-you-need-to-know-about-low-vs-high-impedance-models/)
Considering this, going for the HyperX Cloud ...
I've been using a Plantronics Savi 700 Series for the past few years.
Is way over budget at $400. I got this as a gift through a fortunate series of events. I'm definitely open to other recommendations of cheaper products.
Connects to my MacBook through USB (the cord goes from the base to the laptop)
The headset itself is ...
This is not how audio recording works. The position of your ears is irrelevant for a recording device, because there are better, more compact ways to record stereo sound.
Here's how a stereo microphone capsule for a professional recorder looks like:
Those things at the very top are two microphones which are positioned very closely together, but, thanks to ...
You've got two conflicting criteria: noise cancelling and shallow in the ear. Anything noise cancelling is also going to be as noise isolating as possible to avoid letting in excess sound to minimize the job the active cancellation needs to do.
The best I can recommend would be something from Bose's in-ear lineup. They've all got inline mics and wired 3.5mm ...
It's expensive, at $300, but I recommend the Astro A50.
The manual for this headset is online, for you to browse prior to purchase. It includes set up instructions
The headset has 7.1 surround sound and works on both my Xbox One and PS4. The Astro page says it also works on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. I haven't tried it on any of those systems. The battery ...
It took me a fair bit of Web searching to find the answer.
In the end, I finally hit upon the correct set of terms to enter into Google. I did a Google search for [ plantronics m70 m90 vs | comparison | difference ]. The 21st search result was an Amazon.co.uk product-description page which included the information I sought.
On that page, reviewer Andrew ...
A quick search via newegg.com yields the following results:
Pro-G audio & 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound
Adjustable lighting up to 16.8 million colors
Flexible wireless or wired connection up to 12-hour battery life
Foldaway noise-cancelling mic
Wireless type: RF
2.4 GHz wireless
I've not tried these personally - and as with any headphones, its a good idea to try any headphones for fit (tight headphones cause headaches) and sound quality if possible, but it sounds like considering your fear of EMF, you might want to consider a IR based unit. IR's basically the same technology used in remote controls, is line of sight, and its ...
Part of that which is missing in today's portable communications devices (cellular phones) is a feature of old-time telephones known as sidetone. This is exactly what you describe as feedback. One can hear one's own voice when speaking, with minimal to zero delay. Any appreciable delay becomes comedy material for radio disk jockeys and is riotous.
I did a ...
I have a wireless Jabra ANC Headset now (Jabra Evolve2 85)
This way the Linux Bluetooth gets avoided, since there is a custom USB-dongle which speaks to the headset.
But it is not perfect.
My voice sounds a bit strange, compared to much cheaper wired headsets.

First of all, bluetooth won't provide high quality sound and using the microphone by its standard. From my research I think the SteelSeries Sibera 840 might be a good match, it can be used with most consoles and PCs and includes bluetooth. The catch is it's no earbuds, but then again I doubt you could get proper surround sound from buds...
The best bud earphones I've ever used where those which came with the Nokia N8. The satisfy all of your primary requirements, except #4 (the warranty). However, I would imagine that you could pick some up second hand, quite cheaply, and so the warranty would not really be an issue.
As you can see from the photo, they will even satisfy your second optional ...
I've been looking around a bit, so far I've found the following two candidates, coincidentally all from SteelSeries (no, I am not affiliated, apparently they just are good):
The SteelSeries Siberia 840 can be used both wired (full quality, not using bluetooth) and wireless, has two battery packs for quick exchange and recharge, and additional bluetooth ...
