budget ?
Also, big meh, most gaming headsets are crap sound-quality-wise whatever the price, compared to 'real' headphones.
Get yourself something good like one of the ZIK models of Parrot and buy a mic (clip on?) and a soundcard/dac (3d audio tech like dolby headphone, see MadLustEnvie's Head-Fi thread)

I wanted wireless so slapping a mic on to a normal headphines would be adding a cable if im not mistaken ?

Alot of reviews are good for the steel series ones and the hedset u mentioned ive looked at but that's on me budget with out a mic

Sennheiser is a go-to for me, I really like their stuff a lot. They've got a wireless set of headphones here but these don't have a microphone and it looks like they're not available in Europe, or the UK at least. Not exactly sure where you're at specifically. They have the gaming series (Game One and Game Zero) but both of them are wired, really well reviewed though.

The Steelseries Siberia 800 are pretty expensive, but really well reviewed from everything I've seen. I recommend those if you have to have a wireless headset with a mic and want great audio quality. I will also mention Logitech's G933 Artemis Spectrum which came out recently. They've got some really cool features and they are wireless. Really well reviewed for sound in regards to music, movies, and gaming, but the mic is pretty good but not great. I would actually recommend these over the Steelseries as a much better bang for your buck headset. I think you'd get the most out of the Logitech ones to be honest.

I have Jaybirds. I love them. Use them for everything. They're bluetooth, no big battery, amazing sound quality... I have no idea how long they last. I plug them in every night or every other night via micro USB and I have never heard a battery low warning or anything.

Use them all day at work, use them for gaming when I get home, youtube, listening to music before bed etc... They're apart of my daily life. Love them and highly recommend them.

There are different revisions of the ZIK headphones, maybe take rev. 2 so you save a bit and buy the rest of needed things (wireless mic ?)

Ive looked at the logitec ones but sum of thr reviews point out with any head movement they are prone to movement on head ie having a drink tilting ya head back they fall off the back of your head

Ive got a bluetooth set of ear phones i picked up on sale for £50 which are good but was looking at wireless more then bluetooth for the range aswell

Really? My car has bluetooth and when I use autostart in the morning it can be quite a pain because the range is too good! If I'm in the house on the phone making a call, it will use my cars bluetooth which is easily a good 50ft away with about 2-3 walls... So, from my perspective, strange to hear range issues...
