I've worn out my old headphones and I'm thinking about getting an upgrade. Any go-to suggestions? I'm looking for over-ear headphones with optimal sound quality for multiple uses. Music, gaming, and sound editing.

I bought these for 40 bucks and they work real well, I've played games, listened to music. and watched TV in these babies, great sound quality to be just 40 dollars.

Do you have a budget?

Audio Technica, V-Moda, and Sennheiser are known to have great cans at various price points.

I'm going to echo this one. I currently rock these guys:



They're the V-Moda Crossfade Wireless. They're expensive ($300 overall), but I use them for everything (PS4/XB1, Voice Chat on PC, and listening to music religiously through them). Before these, I had the V-Moda M-100s (the earlier model) - but upgraded to the Crossfade Wireless (they have a trade-in deal that lets you cut the cost as long as your current pair is in good quality).

I do have a pair of HD600s (Sennheiser) that I listen to classical and orchestra-like music through (open back headphones are better for this type of music); however, I would not recommend this model for an "overall" headset. If you're looking for mid-range, you'd definitely find a sweet spot with Audio Technica. The ATH-50x model is my go-to for long walks (because I'd rather not cause any damage to the Crossfade Wireless; which I use for everything but warm/hot walks or jogs because of their price/value) - they're around $100-150 depending on where you're looking.
