10 Gaming Headphones

1. Hyperx Cloud Revolver S

When we first sat down to review the HyperX Cloud Revolver S, we were a bit divided. On one hand, it features fantastic 7.1-channel surround sound, delivered through Dolby’s trademark digital signal processor. On the other, it’s extremely pricey when compared to other similar headsets. Luckily, as one of Kingston’s most subdued pair of cans we’ve ever seen (or heard), the pristine comfort and top-notch sound more than make up for its high price and oddly placed detachable mic.

2. SteelSeries Arctis Pro

SteelSeries is known for providing pristine audio, but the SteelSeries Arctis Pro takes things to another level. This headset doesn’t just provide immersive surround sound for all the explosive action of your favorite games, but thanks to its included DAC (digital to audio converter), the Arctis Pro will also serve you well when listening to music. This PC gaming headset is a little on the expensive side, but when you consider just how comfortable and bombastic this headset is, well, it’s easy to see why it’s one of the best gaming headsets you can buy today.

3. Logitech G Pro

The Logitech G Pro gaming headset offers raw performance over your traditional ‘gamer aesthetic’, and it’s comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time. This headset doesn’t offer much else, but it doesn’t need to. The Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset focuses squarely on providing excellent quality, rather than filling out a sheet of bells and whistles, and if value is what you’re looking for, the Logitech G Pro might be the best PC gaming headset for you.

4. Razer Nari Ultimate

Anyone can simply listen to their games, but what if we told you that you could feel them? With the Razer Nari Ultimate, that can finally be a reality, this gaming headset has haptic motors in the ear cups that makes your ears vibrate. This would be enough to make this at least an interesting headset, but when paired with the long battery life, amazing sound quality and comfortable build, it’s easily one of the best gaming headsets out there. Just, do yourself a favor and turn off the haptic feedback when you’re listening to music.

5. Astro A20

If you’re looking for one of the best gaming headsets, but those high-end $300 headsets make your stomach turn and you don’t want something cheap, you should take a look at the Astro A20s. Featuring solid stereo sound performance in a wireless headset, not to mention the stunning 15-hour battery life, this headset has all the necessary features that you might want in its price range. Sure, it doesn’t have surround sound, but it more than makes up for it with its economy and battery life.

6. Creative Sound BlasterX H7

Creative has created a name for itself over the ears for crafting sublime audio products – and the Creative Sound BlasterX H7 Tournament Edition further cements that legacy. Instead of just sitting and iterating on the winning formula of its previous products, Creative completely revamped  the Sound BlasterX H7, resulting in a PC gaming headset that looks just as good as it sounds. If you’re looking for a comfortable, sturdy and meaty-sounding headset, the Creative Sound BlasterX H7 Tournament Edition is one of the best PC gaming headsets today.

7. Asus ROG Strix Fusion 700

With its Republic of Gamers brand, Asus has built a reputation for being the name behind some of the best gaming peripherals that constantly meet consumer standards, and the Asus ROG Strix Fusion 700 is another one. Packed with 50mm Neodymium drivers and Bluetooth compatibility, this gaming headset provides excellent sound quality without being tethered with a wire. And, it’s even compatible with other gaming platforms, so you don’t have to juggle around different headsets. It’s a little expensive, but given how good this headset sounds, we’d say it’s worth it.

8. HyperX Cloud Flight

The HyperX Cloud Flight is a long-lasting wireless gaming headset featuring up to 30 hours of battery life. This means you can likely get two full days of gaming in between charges. However, there’s a catch – unlike the Cloud Flight’s competition, namely the Astro A20, this gaming headset only offers stereo sound, abandoning any surround sound implementation. You can thankfully get around it by playing around with the Dolby Access app, though, and the sound profile is balanced enough to make this a non-issue.

9. Corsair HS70

Corsair released one of the best gaming headsets late last year with the Corsair HS50, and now, it has made it even better by making it wireless and giving it virtual surround sound capabilities. These features on their own would make a great gaming headset, but when you add in the fantastic Corsair CUE software on top of it, it makes a complete package that would make a great addition to your gaming setup.

10. Beyerdynamic Custom Game

While it’s more expensive than we’d like, the Beyerdynamic CUSTOM Game is one of the best gaming headsets we’ve used in a while. It doesn’t feature flashy surround sound or wireless functionality, but this headset excels in two of the most important categories: sound and comfort. Seriously, once you put it on and experience your games in headphones this good, there’s no going back.
