It makes full use of its excellent high-res audio with a 5Hz – 40KHz frequency response range and thanks to the included DAC, it’ll satisfy the most critical audiophiles. The DAC is a digital to analogue converter, a preamp and a control centre all in one which allows you to easily customise the headset’s settings.
Whether you’re playing games, watching TV/movies or listening to music you can’t go wrong with this headset. It can be quite expensive, but when you consider how incredible it is in every department, you can’t deny that it’s worth it.
The wireless version makes no compromises on its quality and has a unique and ultra-convenient dual-battery charging system. Although it comes without the DAC and isn’t compatible for the PS4, it’s absolutely one of the best wireless headsets available right now for the PC.
Wireless: Yes (USB wireless, 3.5mm) | Features: 8-hour battery life, HyperSense haptic feedback, compatible with many devices, 50mm drivers
Well balanced sound quality
Great haptic feedback execution
Solid wireless connection
Limited wireless compatibility
The Razer Nari Ultimate truly is a great all-round headset and is by far the best Razer has produced so far.
Probably the best execution in gaming headsets so far, the haptic feedback makes you feel completely immersed in whatever it is you’re playing (or watching). A big reason for that is the wide array of haptic frequencies that are featured which means the rumble effects are extremely realistic. Although great, the haptic feedback is quite divisive so be sure it’s for you before buying.
The Nari Ultimate isn’t just about haptic feedback, it also boasts a very high level of sound quality with an added range of highs, mids and lows. As well as that, it’s compatible with every gaming device and every game, the wireless connection is consistent and the headset is very comfortable with gel-infused ear cushions.
Yes, it can be quite expensive but the experience is definitely worth it.
Wireless: No (3.5mm) | Features: Passive noise isolation, Pro-G drivers, detachable mic, Dolby Atmos support
Top quality all-round sound
The Logitech G Pro gaming headset is all about providing no-nonsense raw performance without any extra frills.
The sound quality is great for the price, it’s comfortable over long periods of time and it’s sturdy over long-term use. Not much else in on offer but it has all the essentials you need in a gaming headset for a great price.
Wireless: Yes | Features: Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound, compatible with most devices, Astro Audio, 5.8GHz wireless tech with MixAmp, 6.0mm uni-directional noise cancelling mic, USB charging with a base station
Stunning 7.1 surround sound
Excellent noise cancelling
Fiddly charging station
The Astro A50 Wireless version of the already great Astro A50 offers more of the same incredibly immersive 7.1 surround sound audio.
You can only really comprehend the mind-blowing level of experience enhancing quality on offer by trying it yourself but honestly, it’s amazing. The Astro A50 Wireless is also extremely comfortable and it’s compatible with most devices including the PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and mobile.
If you’re looking for an immersive, comfortable, robust wireless headset with great battery life then the Astro A50 is for you.
It’s especially perfect for first-person shooter players. However, since the focus is on being loud and clear, it’ll be loud for anyone else in the same room. That won’t bother most competitive gamers though since any edge over your opponents is worth it. This headset is also extremely comfortable and well made; there’s a lot to love about the Turtle Beach Elite Pro.
Carrying on HyperX Cloud’s long history of powerful, well-made headsets, the HyperX Cloud Alpha provides excellent sound and build quality.
It has all the essential features you want in a headset with no unnecessary flab which keeps the price at a very reasonable level. Packing a high level of bass (but not too much), generous padding, a clear mic and great comfort, the Hyper X Cloud Alpha is easily worth a buy.
What makes this unique is the THQ spacial audio which is especially good for helping you pinpoint sound wherever it comes from. Not only that, it’s extremely comfortable due to the gel-infused ear cushions and the retractable mic is loud and clear. Though the sound quality is excellent, it is overly bassy for many peoples tastes. All-round, however, it’s a great headset that’s well suited for competitive play.
A wireless headset with an incredible battery life.
Wireless: Yes | Features: Long-lasting battery life, durable, adjustable steel slider, PC and PS4 compatibility, detachable noise-cancellation microphone
30-hour battery life
No surround sound
The main selling point of the HyperX Cloud Flight is the extremely long battery life of 30 hours. This means a week of gaming (or 2 days for some) without needing to charge.
However, unlike the Astro A20 (which is at a similar price point), it only offers stereo sound and no surround sound. You can tinker with the Dolby Access app to get around this however and it works quite well.
With Corsair’s move into gaming peripherals recently, they’ve become known for their high level of quality. The Corsair Void Pro RGB Wireless has fantastic sound fidelity, tasteful RGB lighting and is quite unbreakable. You can even customise the RGB lighting to match your build’s colour scheme, especially if you use Corsair PC components, using the Corsair Utility Engine. The only downside is that you’d often need to charge it with it having low battery-life.
Overall, the Corsair Void Pro RGB is a great all-round wireless gaming headset at a reasonable price.
Wireless: Yes | Features: Astro Command Center software, compatible with many devices, 15-hour battery life
High level of sound quality
Robust and well made
15-hour battery life
No surround sound
The Astro A20 is a perfect middle of the road headset that balances features and price quite well. It features clear stereo audio, 15-hour battery life and it’s wireless. Yes, it doesn’t have surround sound but what it does offer more than makes up for that.
