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).
EG Carbon Headset
Get ready to fall in love with this snug, sleek and stunning creation from EG Gaming. Specifically designed for gamers, its lightweight, black and red design and padded features guarantee that it’s a comfortable fit for your head (and a stylish one, to boot). Its practical features are awesome, too. Inline controls allow you to adjust your volume or mute components (such as your in-built mic) with just a simple click, and, because we’re a generous bunch, you also have the option of downloading even more cool software to enhance your audio experience even further. Game on!
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.
EG Wired PC Headset
Explosive audio meets ergonomic excellence in the EG Wired PC Headset. With 7.1 simulated surround sound, every noise – from the wind blowing through the trees to rapid gunfire as you close in on your enemies in The Division 2 – roars into life, making adrenaline-packed gameplay even more invigorating. Everything else you’ve come to expect from a cracking headset – soft, padded earpieces, a high-quality mic and adjustable headband – are all part of its enticing package, too, along with a stunning black design that’ll make it the belle of your gaming rig. What’s not to love?
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.
