Updated: Jul 16, 2022


 

When you're in the market searching for a new gaming headset, you want to be able to check all the boxes without breaking the bank. Finding the right one with great audio, comfort, or sound can be tricky. A quality gaming headset is one of the easiest ways to one-up any gaming experience. Here are the Top 5 gaming headsets that we feel exceed all others.


 


Best Overall Gaming Headset: SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless: $349

Drivers: 40mm Neodymium

Features: Wireless, Excellent Build Quality, Simultaneous 2.4GHz wireless/Bluetooth connectivity, Swappable dual-battery system, Active noise cancellation

Compatibility: PC, Mac, PS4, PS5, Switch


Pros: Excellent Build Quality, Lightweight, Comfortable, Airweave fabric ear cushions, Signature ski goggle suspension headband

Cons: Pricey


If you are looking for a premium wireless, multi-platform gaming headset then this is definitely a must-have. The Arctis Pro Wireless is packed with tons of cool features that make that $349 price point worth it. With the transmitter base, you can adjust all your audio settings, tweak the onboard equalizer, and manage your Bluetooth settings. As for audio quality, it's the first in gaming to offer DTS Headphone:X v2.0 surround sound where you can feel everything around you come to life. This headset sounds awesome but, since it is a wireless headset, you won't have that extra power like you would with the wired version. One of the best features of this headset is the swappable battery packs. You will find that two battery packs are included in the initial purchase as well as additional packs available on the SteelSeries website. Whenever your headset is low, just swap out the rechargeable packs and you're good to go for another 10 hours. If that's not enough to convince you and you're looking for an alternate wired route, you can get the exact same headset in the wired version which offers an even more powerful audio punch.
