Has anyone tried these for computer gaming, and if so what did you think? Was the latency horrible?

I would try before buying. Bluetooth can have incredible latency, enough to destroy lipsync in movies and lag your sound in games.

Ok here's the rub. If you are a multitasker when gaming don't bother. Bluetooth standard only plays one source type at a time. IE you can have your game audio. Or you can have the mono format for Discord. I wish my system would be smart enough to handle both but that is not the case.

Check out Audeze Mobius. Seems like a fantastic bluetooth headset for gaming or just listening to a movie.

I love the sound of this headset. That's not the problem. It's a limitation of bluetooth. IT's either audio codec or voice codec not both. So if you want to use discord AND game its wired or nothing.
