Hello everyone,

I am posting here because I need help. I want to upgrade from my HyperX Revolver S headphones, but I am not sure if I should or which ones I should purchase.

My budget is $400.00, I prefer 50mm or bigger headphones. As I find most 40mm headphones to be uncomfortable for my ears.

I keep looking at the Orbit S, but I am under the impression that they require charging, even though they are wired headphones.

Thank you, everyone, for your help in this.

Saw you were getting some advice on Anandtech as well

If I was ever shopping for headphones in that kind of price range I'd probably go to head-fi first:

Not that you shouldn't have asked here or anything, you're very welcome :D just that since responses here have been a bit quiet you might want to try them too! The level of knowledge on the subject there is pretty mind blowing, to someone like me anyway

This isn't quite a recommendation, but right this moment I'm wearing a set of Hifiman HE-400i headphones.

These are not "gaming" headphones; there's no integrated microphone and they're strictly stereo, but they are fantastic. That goes for games, music, video -- it's all great. Very sharp, detailed sound with full-bodied bass that doesn't overdo itself.

The earpads also have to be replaced every year or so, which is annoying and costs ~$20 every time. At least they're detachable.

With that in mind, my advice is to consider non-gaming oriented headphones alongside what you're already considering. Additionally, longevity is another factor to keep an eye on.
