Looking for recommendations for a USB headset (with mic).

I have a Corsair wireless headset that I dislike immensely... Although the sound quality is good, they are way too big and heavy.  Also, they do nothing, or very little, to block out external sounds.  Do I need something listed as 'noise cancelling' for that, or is that something different altogether?

Not willing to pay more than about £100GBP.   There appears to be quite a lot available in the £40-£60 bracket.

I just got these last week. They seem to work well and are comfortable.

I have had these for years.   They are very comfortable on the ears for all day use.  Great sound and good mic.  https://www.hyperxgaming.com/us/headsets/cloud-gaming-headset?partnum=KHX-HSCP-RD
