Best Budget Gaming Headsets 2019
Let’s take a guess. You want a headset that’s soft. Secure. Equipped with awesome audio features that make each game sound – and feel – totally immersive. But you don’t want to break the bank, either.
We hear you. Read on to find out about the best budget gaming headsets available on Ebuyer right now… out of these outstanding options, there’s bound to be one that SOUNDS good to you (“and the winner of the worst pun competition is…”).
HyperX Cloud II Headset Red
The simple yet striking HyperX Cloud II looks – and sounds – like it’s come straight from the future. Virtual 7.1 surround sound and a newly-designed USB sound card audio control box, that amplifies audio and vocals for an optimal Hi-Fi gaming experience, ensures that you pick up on even the teeniest, tiniest sounds in-game. Its chat quality is legendary, too. Both certified by TeamSpeak and the official headset of Intel Extreme Masters, its chat audio quality is recognised the world over, thanks to a noise and echo cancelling mic that makes your friends sound crystal clear online… perfect for strategising against your enemies. Yep. This headset’s definitely one to watch (that is, before you inevitably cave and add it to your collection).
Corsair HS50 Carbon Gaming Headset
Crafted by the exceptionally skilled design team at Corsair, the HS50 is built with comfort, quality and gaming in mind. Plush memory foam and swivelling earcups ensure your lug holes will be left unscathed after hours of play, while the 50mm neodymium speaker drivers deliver rich, superior sound to help you pinpoint every enemy in close proximity. Your hapless teammates will never mishear your commands, either, with the unidirectional microphone providing outstanding sound while reducing ambient noise. It’s also Discord Certified, and compatible with PC, consoles and mobile devices. Roger that.
Razer Electra V2 USB Digital Headset
The Razer Electra V2 USB isn’t messing around when it comes to powerful audio quality. Razer Synapse allows you to calibrate this headset to your own listening preferences, while impressive surround sound ensures that you have perfectly balanced audio that ticks all the boxes (even Thanos would approve). A flexible and detachable mic and auto-adjusting headband means that you can easily tweak this headset to fit you comfortably in whatever scenario, while plush ear cushions both serve as a treat for your ears and isolate your audio, so you can play your games without being disturbed by any exterior activity. In a word: outstanding.
ASUS TUF Gaming H5 Lite Headset
If you’re sick of having your cranium clamped by a bulky, headache-inducing headset, then the ASUS TUF Gaming H5 Lite should be more than a blip on your radar. Thanks to its lightweight design and stainless-steel headband, you’ll be able to game in comfort for hours without worrying about durability. Things will sound pretty wicked, too, as the TUF Gaming H5 Lite inherits ASUS gaming’s iconic airtight chamber and ASUS Essence drivers, which provide crystal clear sound with booming bass. That’ll do nicely.
HyperX Cloud Stinger Headset
The HyperX Cloud Stinger Headset is crammed with fancy features to suit every type of gamer, from seasoned experts to budding beginners. 50mm directional drivers push sound directly into your ear for the highest-quality audio experience and the volume slider, located on your right ear cup, makes altering your noise levels a doddle. Intuitive features, such as the ability to mute your mic by flipping it upwards, add to its user-friendly feel, while HyperX signature memory foam keeps your ears luxuriously cushioned. Finally, with the help of its 90-degree rotating ear cups – which ensure it fits snugly around your neck – it’s the ideal choice for LAN parties and tournaments, where gameplay can go on for hours. Champion.
