Music and sound effects are key to a great gaming experience. Gaming headsets are a little more specialized than typical headphones and having the right pair of gaming headphones can help improve your overall time spent gaming. The best gaming headphones are comfortable, sound good, and have a decent microphone. They also usually have dedicated software support, lots of active features, and have customization options. However, specialized gaming headsets can be quite bulky and the wireless models are often limited by the range of their transmitter. If you play single player games exclusively and don’t need a microphone, then most wired would be a good option too.

So far, in our testing, following headsets are selected to be the best headsets in our opinion so far. But obviously personal preferences of each gamer can not be taken into consideration, so all the pros and cons are listed so have a look on each headset and you be the judge of what headset you like the most!

Best Gaming Headsets:

1.SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless

Type : Over-ear

Enclosure : Closed-Back

Wireless : Yes

Noise-Cancelling : No

Mic : Yes

Transducer : Dynamic

The best gaming headset we’ve tested so far is the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless. It is a great gaming headset that is incredibly versatile since it uses not only a USB wireless transmitter but also supports Bluetooth. These headphones can mix audio from both wireless sources at the same time and are great for gamers who like to chat on their smartphone while gaming on their console.

These headphones have impressive sound and come with a great wireless base transmitter that has aux, USB, and optical inputs for compatibility with almost all gaming systems and home theater setups. The base transmitter also functions as a battery charging station, and they have removable batteries that can be inserted in the transmitter to be charged.

Unfortunately, these headphones don’t have native microphone support on the Xbox One. There have also been reports of issues with the microphone, especially on the PS4 and iOS. While resetting the base transmitter or allowing to PS4 to fully power cycle seems to help, it’s disappointing that they don’t provide the same level of microphone control as the SteelSeries Arctis Pro GameDAC. The GameDAC edition have even more customization options, especially for the mic, but their lack of wireless connectivity makes them less versatile overall than the Arctis Pro Wireless.

2. Wireless Alternative For Xbox One: Astro A50 Wireless

Type : Over-ear

Enclosure : Closed-Back

Wireless : Yes

Noise-Cancelling : No

Mic : Yes

Transducer : Dynamic

If you want a more comfortable alternative to the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless and you mostly use your headphones for Xbox One gaming home, then get the Astro A50 instead. They’re not as versatile as the SteelSeries since they don’t support Bluetooth, but their adjustable headband can expand to accommodate a greater variety of head shapes and sizes and their fit is overall more comfortable. They also provide full audio and microphone support wirelessly on the Xbox One.

Unlike the SteelSeries or the HyperX Cloud Flight, these headphones don’t have an outdoor-friendly design, since you can’t use them wired. On the upside, their base station supports dock charging and provides a nice place to store and charge your headphones when not in use. If you’re an Xbox user and primarily use your headphones just for gaming or need a good headset for watching movies, then the Astro A50s are a good choice.

3. Audeze Mobius

Type : Over-ear

Enclosure : Closed-Back

Wireless : Yes

Noise-Cancelling : Yes

Mic : Yes

Transducer : Dynamic

The Audeze Mobius is hands-down the best sound gaming headset we’ve ever tested. The custom drivers and head tracking tech create one of the most immersive gaming and movie watching experiences we’ve ever enjoyed. Issues with its wireless connectivity on Windows stop it from being a shut up and take my money purchase, however.

4. LucidSound LS35X

Type : Over-ear

Enclosure : Closed-Back

Wireless : Yes

Noise-Cancelling : No

Mic : Yes

Transducer : Dynamic

On top of the usual excellent audio reproduction via custom tuned 50mm speakers with neodymium magnets and lush build quality, the big sell here is that the LS35X connects wirelessly directly to the Xbox One without any additional cables or a base station. What’s more, the LS35X also automatically configures itself as well, making it a true plug-and-play product. Throw in dual mics with mic monitoring, a delightfully lightweight build, and top surround sound capabilities, and it’s easy to see how the LS35X gaming headset is one of the absolute best on the market today and a must-see for any Xbox One gamer looking to upgrade.

Best Mid-Range Gaming Headsets:

1.SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 Edition Wireless

Type : Over-ear

Enclosure : Closed-Back

Wireless : Yes

Noise-Cancelling : No

Mic : Yes

Transducer : Dynamic

Like the Pro Wireless, these headphones sound great. They don’t have the same removable battery system, but they still have a great battery life of 24 hours, which should be more than enough to satisfy most gamers. Their wireless dongle provides a low latency gaming experience and has an aux input too for compatibility with most audio sources. They don’t support Bluetooth, but it’s possible to connect them to your smartphone or mobile devices with their included audio cable.


2.Logitech G933 Wireless Gaming Headset

Type : Over-ear

Enclosure : Closed-Back

Wireless : Yes

Noise-Cancelling : No

Mic : Yes

Transducer : Dynamic


If you’re always on the lookout for the latest and greatest products, the newer Logitech G935 may be worth considering since they sound better out-of-the-box, but they have a less complete control scheme. Unlike the G933, the G935 don’t have a dedicated call/music management button, so if you want to map call/music commands, you’ll likely run out of buttons for more gaming-specific controls. The G933 provide slightly better value overall and are worth considering for those looking for a good customizable gaming headset. They have three mappable buttons that can be programmed in the G Hub software to trigger virtually any command. These headphones sound good and have an outstandingly low-latency wireless connection that’s compatible with PC and PS4.


3. HyperX Cloud 2/Cloud II

Type : Over-ear

Enclosure : Closed-Back

Wireless : No

Noise-Cancelling : No

Mic : Yes

Transducer : Dynamic

They’re not customizable, but they make up for it with their great build quality and comfortable, well-padded ear cups. They feel sturdy and durable and come with an excellent boom mic that reproduces your voice accurately when playing multiplayer games. Also since their mic is detachable, they can look more like casual headphones when used outdoors with your mobile devices.

4. Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp

Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 + SuperAmp


Excellent sound quality with powerful bass. Sturdy, luxurious build. Bluetooth audio with included SuperAmp. Less-than-stellar microphone. SuperAmp has few controls. Unreliable app.

The Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 is a fantastic wired gaming headset even if its SuperAmp accessory doesn’t add much to the total package.

Cheap Alternative Gaming Headsets

1.Turtle Beach Atlas One

Inexpensive. Comfortable. Good mic for the price. Limited audio range; weak in the lows and highs. The Turtle Beach Atlas One is a functional wired gaming headset that works quite well for the price

2. PDP Level50 Headset

Affordable. Comfortable. Two audio modes offer satisfying bass and balance for gaming and music. Slightly fuzzy microphone. No wired connection option. The wireless PDP LVL50 is one of the best budget wireless gaming headsets we’ve tested, not to mention one of the few available for under $100.

3. Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset

Very good sound with powerful bass. Excellent boom microphone. Solidly made, with quality materials. Light on accessories. The Logitech G Pro is a simple but very well-made and functional wired gaming headset you can pick up for less than $100.

4. Logitech G430 Gaming Headset

They sound good, have a decent microphone, and are fairly comfortable.

Though they do have access to some customization features through the Logitech Gaming Software, they aren’t as customizable as other models in the Logitech G Series. They also feel quite cheap, especially compared to the build quality of the Corsair, which often come on sale. That said, they’re still a solid pick for gamers on a budget who are looking for a low-cost headset.
