Based on our independent testing, these are the best gaming headsets you can get in 2020, from budget to wireless cans.
The SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless offers an elegant design with solid audio, but at a cheaper price than many other cable-free gaming headsets.
The Cooler Master MH650 gaming headset delivers generally crisp audio with effective virtual surround sound. But streamers and chatters will want to upgrade its mic.
The SteelSeries Arctis 5 is a strong gaming headset with extensive software suite and a ChatMix dial. It also does well as a general headset with great audio settings for music and film.
This summer, HP is releasing two new gaming mice at two different price points and a new wireless headset with 7.1 virtual surround sound.
The JBL Quantum One gaming headset is comfy and feature-rich, but its head tracking doesn’t earn the $300 price tag.
The HyperX Cloud Alpha S gaming headset adds virtual surround sound and bass sliders to an already impressive headset, but with varying results.
HyperX continues to build out its heavily favored Cloud lineup of gaming headsets with the Cloud Flight S, a remarkably lightweight and comfortable wireless offering with some significant drawbacks.
HyperX launched its first headset equipped with Qi wireless charging, the Cloud Flight S, along with a new ChargePlay base that can simultaneously charge two such Qi-enabled devices.
The good definitely outweighs the bad in the Corsair Void RGB Elite USB gaming headset, but it's a shame we couldn't find a snug fit that produced an audio response sounding as intended.
The Asus TUF Gaming H3 headset shines with a cozy fit and audio that sounds great for gaming without the need to tweak. It even rivals more expensive headsets, like the Asus TUF Gaming H7.
Established as the go-to wireless headset since its release, the SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 Edition is still a supremely strong contender in an increasingly crowded cable-free market.
Corsair's HS60 Pro Surround gaming headset offers one of the most complete and well-built gaming headsets for the price. It even rivals the pricier Corsair Void Pro in some areas.
The new Razer Kraken is great value, and delivers better audio than you’d expect, but there are some trade-offs.
The Asus ROG Strix Go 2.4's two mics both use artificial intelligence (AI) to target and cancel out unwanted sound.
The Razer Kraken Ultimate gaming headset packs THX Spatial Audio, which Razer claims is more immersive than surround sound.
