My recent full review of the Cloud Mix might be of some interest to you.

I find it much more appealing than the Cloud Flight personally in every way…except for the too-high price. I swallowed my frustration and bought one just so I could fairly have my say.

I still think they’re too spendy when stacked against other 200 dollar bluetooth pairs, but the convenience of having both a wired gaming headset and a bluetooth headphone in one unit is nice.

Also, if you found the Flight’s cups too small, the Mix’s probably won’t be better for you. They’re a bit smaller than the traditional Alpha/Cloud II cups even, though quite deep.

As I mentioned in both the article you commented on and the review, the Arctis 3 Bluetooth offers the same feature set as the Mix with a much cheaper price of $99 bucks. The 2019 edition has deeper ear cups than the older edition, though again I worry that if the Flight’s were too small for you then you won’t love the Arctis either.

The 1000XM3 is a great ANC unit, and I personally wouldn’t spend that much if you plan to turn the NC off even some of the time. It is possible to adjust the NC level at the touch of a button.

If you need a gaming mic and Bluetooth, the entire list of options on the market right now is: Cloud Mix, Arctis 3 Bluetooth, Turtle Beach Stealth 700, Turtle Beach Elite 800, and Arctis Pro Wireless. The old now-discontinued Steelseries Siberia 800 also had Bluetooth.

If none of those will get it done for you, then the only option is to own multiple headphones if you need to have something with gaming features and something with Bluetooth.

That’s the best I can do! Hope it helped in some way!
