Best gear/headset phones to replace HP reverb audio?

The right ear of my HP Reverb G1 has a pretty bad short in it and I'm finding that I spend a lot of time tweaking, twisting and turning it. 

I have neither the courage to try and disassemble it, nor the skills to find and fix the issue.

Has anyone added external audio/mic to it using the jack supplied, and if so what did you go with?

The supplied headphones suck anyway.

A few weeks back, my left earphone/speaker was giving me issues:  cutting out, having static and not playing sound at all.

At the suggestion of a squad mate,,   ii unscrewed it (easy  and no technical skills required., cleaned both connections with isopropyl alcohol (90% or better if you have it) and then tightened it back down.  Haven't had any more issues (yet).

 

If you haven't tried this, it is worth a try.,

I took the headphones off my G2, mostly because they suck, and now I use Bose QC35s with an Avantree DG80 USB Bluetooth audio dongle.  A little clunky getting everything paired the first time, but once that's done its done.  MUCH better sound.

I use Galaxy Buds Plus and a boom mic with my G2.  If you're looking for a good over the ear set the Arctis stuff is nice, but I don't like that with VR.  I want to be able to switch from 2d to VR without removing my audio and mic.  I tried Bose earbuds and they sound better than the Galaxy, but the battery life wasn't as good and they were much heavier.  Not comfortable for extended use.

Yep I use earbuds as well. Kind of off brand I got from Amazon but they do quite well. I have used earbuds with every headset.

I got the extended ones and plug them into my Creative sound jack on the PC.

HyperX Clouds

yup, I use the same, although I think mine is Hyperx Clouds II version with the 7.1 chip in the cable so it can do a fake 7.1 in headphones.  Had them for 2 years now, they fit over VivePro1, G2, VivePro2  (just need to remove the headphones from the HMD first). 

Clear sound, flexible boom Mic, good bass...

recommend.

Yes same here with the left one. Crackles like hell, will try cleaning it but think it is best if I just send it back for replacement, since still in warrantee period.

Have the Arctis pro, which sounds much better, but is a pain to put on over the G2 and it starts hurting the top of my head after a while.
