Best gaming headsets for PC’s and consoles 2021: buying guide

Good gaming headsets can literally make a difference, especially for those who play competitive games online.

Adding to having a quality microphone, ideal for talking with friends, they are also an excellent ally for gamers who play mainly at night, especially if you want to enjoy a robust and bright sound without disturbing roommates and neighbors.

With so many different models (and many from Chinese) online, we have classified what we believe to be the best gaming headsets for PC and console in this guide.

If you have PlayStation 4, we have also written a specific guide dedicated to the best PS4 headsets.

HyperX Cloud Revolver S Gaming Headset with Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound – Steel Frame – Signature Memory Foam, Premium Leatherette, for PC, PS4, PS4 PRO, Xbox One, Xbox One S

The HyperX Cloud Revolver S is the best 360 ° gaming headset we’ve tested so far – great for gamers but also great for so much more. The 7.1 channel surround system offered via Dolby DSP creates a highly accurate soundstage, useful for intercepting enemy footsteps and for maximum immersion in film and music.

But the Revolver S is not only distinguished by its sonic performance.

They are well-built headphones: metal, plastic, eco-leather, and memory foam combine to offer you comfort and strength at the highest levels. With these, even after 10 hours of direct play, you won’t have any comfort issues.

The removable mic isn’t the most flexible we’ve reviewed, but our voice is reproduced with utmost clarity, much to the delight of your peers.

Finally, the price, which is now around 100 bucks, is the Cherry on the cake: You will not find better. Invest at least twice as much (buying the ASTRO Gaming A40).

These HyperX Cloud Revolver S are compatible with all devices with a 3.5mm jack port. Still, Dolby Surround 7.1 audio is only available from PC, PS4, PS4 Pro, and devices with USB audio input.

       Logitech G935: the best wireless system

Best gaming headsets

Logitech G935

The Logitech G935 is the best wireless gaming headset of all kinds, starting with the attractive design that, combined with high-quality materials, ensures extraordinary comfort, even during long gaming sessions.

Buttons can be customized via software, as well as RGB lighting.

But it’s clear that these G935s also shine when it comes to sonic performance. The lows are on the rise, the highs are crisp and clear, and the soundstage is impressive, allowing you to pinpoint the source of the noises with incredible precision.

The built-in microphone is excellent too.

As for compatibility, they are designed to be used on PC, so Playstation 7.1 Surround is lost (although it is still our preferred option), while on Xbox One, they can only be used in wired mode.

      Corsair HS35: the cheapest

Best gaming headsets

Corsair HS35
Corsair HS35 – Stereo Gaming Headset – Memory Foam Earcups – Works with PC, Mac, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android

The Corsair HS35 is the best budget gaming headset to buy (they cost less than 50 bucks). A real good buy at this price.

The construction is primarily plastic, but this does not represent any compromise in terms of comfort: we have used them for hours and hours without noticing the slightest discomfort, thanks to the memory foam padding and the fabric covering of the pavilions.

Compatible with practically any device with a 3.5mm jack input, mainly PS4 and PC, but also Xbox and Switch, they sound great, and the lack of a more expensive 7.1 environment is not noticeable, making them ideal for gamers with discernment that they do not want to spend a considerable amount.

It is also a detachable, Discord-certified headset with a microphone.

      ASTRO Gaming A50 Wireless: the best high-end wireless system

If you want the best wireless gaming headsets for PC and console, then ASTRO Gaming A50 is worth the investment.

This fourth-generation is renewed with the color, now totally black, but maintains the typical ultra-technological gaming design.

Sound performance is at the center of the company’s focus. Thanks to the Dolby Audio / Dolby Atmos standards, the result is maximum involvement in the game’s actions, with a first-rate soundstage and great clarity at all frequencies.

So we like this the microphone cannot be removed, but place it parallel to the canopies to deactivate it. The controls integrated into the headphones allow you to change the balance between the game and match.

Our only complaint is that if you have PS4 and Xbox One, you have to buy two pairs.
