https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-sennheiser-pc37x-gaming-headsetUnder $100 is really hard to recommend something that would last more than a year. I'd honestly try to save until about $150. That really seems to be the tipping point between something lasting a year and something lasting 5, 10 years. plus the sound quality and comfort level shoots up considerably.
At $140 is https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-GAME-Gaming-Headset-Black/dp/B00KNPYAEY/ref=sr_1_4?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1519066160&sr=1-4&keywords=sennheiser+headphone but you would need a clip on mic.
At $160 is https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-GAME-Gaming-Headset-Black/dp/B00KNPYAEY/ref=sr_1_4?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1519066160&sr=1-4&keywords=sennheiser+headphone
Depending on how fast you want these I've seen both at $120 or so. Also look for PC 350 SE's, they are an older model and usually sell for about $240 but on occasion can be found for around $120 as well.
On a side note if you have a really small head and need something wireless the Steelseries Arctic 7 at around $120 isn't a terrible option but I really can't make a recommendation on their longevity yet as the wife has only had them since christmas 2017. They don't sound anywhere near as good as the sennheisers though.
