1. ASTRO Gaming A10 Headset ($37)
The Astro Gaming A-series hasn’t steered many people wrong yet and the A10 is a solid budget option for gamers who want simple and elegant solutions when it comes to headsets. It’s usable on basically any platform and sits at an excellent price range of $37, making it a premier budget option for those who don’t want to spend big on a headset.
2. Razer Kraken Gaming Headset ($40)
Similarly to the Astro Gaming A10, the Razer Kraken comes from a tried and tested manufacturer and offers a great budget option when it comes to headsets. The over-ear form fit is great at controlling the noise around you and the microphone also has built-in sound isolation, making sure your teammates will always be able to hear you. A steal at $40.
3. Razer BlackShark V2 X Gaming Headset ($60)
Another Razer product and a slight step up from the Kraken, the BlackShark V2 offers you a 7.1 surround sound experience, memory foam cushions to facilitate longer gaming sessions and offers compatibility with basically all consoles on the market as well as PC. At $60 it’s still very affordable but is geared towards gamers who spend more time behind their computers and start taking gaming more seriously.
4. HyperX Cloud II – Gaming Headset ($69)
The HyperX Cloud II has been hailed as one of the greatest (and affordable) headsets over the past few years, so much so that many esports titles have made use of their headsets and collaborated with them. The Cloud II offers 7.1 surround sound, interchangeable (memory foam) ear pads and compatibility with all recent consoles as well as PC. At $69, it’s still a very affordable headset.
5. SteelSeries Arctis 7P+ Wireless Gaming Headset ($167)
If you’re looking to step up your game and if you’re on the lookout for the best SteelSeries has to offer, the Arctis 7P+ won’t steer you wrong. It’s wireless, has a great 30 hour battery life, features 3D audio and works great with basically all platforms. It won the best Wireless Gaming Headset for PC in 2021 (according to PC Gamer) and Best PS5 Headset of 2021 (Forbes), and should be at the top of the list in terms of quality. It’s price tag at $167 does reflect that.
