Don't-Miss Headset Stories
Currently, a common piece of advice is to not buy gaming headset, and instead purchase headphones from a respectable company. Sennheiser's Game Zero makes that strategy unnecessary.
Audio-Technica's $300 ATH-AG1X is the most expensive wired gaming headset we've ever reviewed—and sadly, not the best-sounding.
Sennheiser's GSP 350 headset isn't a looker, nor does it have a cheap price tag, but its sound quality is up there with the best headsets in its tier.
HyperX might have just undercut its widely acclaimed $100 Cloud headset with this $50 budget entry.
Logitech's G231 is a decent entry-level headset, but it doesn't do much to shake up the budget-friendly end of the market.
Despite being as bulky as ever, the 2016 Kraken arrives packed with improvements—and is the best showing this line has had in a long time.
Astro's new A50 packs in a base station that doubles as a charging station so it's always ready to go, but $300 is a lot of money for a gaming headset these days.
The new Siberia 840 adds Bluetooth to the old Siberia 800/H Wireless model, but not much else.
G.Skill's debut headset promises "real" 7.1 surround sound, but it's let down by weak drivers and tinny sound.
Despite Kingston's efforts to put out an even better Cloud headset, there’s just not much reason to buy the Revolver over the original HyperX Cloud or Cloud II.
The PDP Afterglow AG 9 is the latest headset to promise wireless freedom for under $100—but you won't get everything you could possibly want.
The Logitech G933 would be a good buy at its list price of $200. At its pretty-much-permanent sale price of $150 to $180, it's probably the best mix of performance and value in a wireless headset right now.
Razer's massive wireless headset boasts an amazing soundstage, incredible battery life, and a fantastic microphone, but you will need to fiddle with its EQ settings to get the most from it.
The Polk Striker Pro P1 makes for an excellent pair of headphones, but fails to compete on the headset front with its similarly priced peers.
Corsair's back with another inexpensive wireless headset, and it's a lot better than the H2100.
