Best Gaming Headsets 2019
Listen up, people! Investing in a great gaming headset can be the difference between winning and losing online. Hearing those muffled footsteps behind you at the last second could save your life, and help you turn the tables. Exceptional audio can also make your favourite games more immersive, enjoyable and almost tangible experiences. So don’t skimp on sound quality – here are some of the best gaming headsets in 2019.
Corsair Gaming VOID Pro RGB Wireless Dolby 7.1
Designed to withstand even the most heavy-handed of gamers, the Corsair Gaming VOID Pro RGB Wireless headset combines the company’s legendary durability with epic audio performance. With custom tuned 50mm neodymium drivers, Dolby 7.1 surround sound and low latency wireless performance, you’ll be able to pinpoint enemies at a moment’s notice, without the worry of pesky wires.
You’ll also look **** fine doing it. With customisable RGB lighting, the Gaming VOID Pro can transform your headset into a bright, technicoloured disco, albeit one that trades funky music for the sounds of gunshots and explosions… still, better than One Direction.
HyperX Cloud Revolver S Gaming Headset
Compatible with a whole host of devices, the HyperX Cloud Revolver S Gaming headset features a studio-grade sound stage which delivers crisp, precise audio. Ideal for FPS games, it lets you accurately determine sounds from further away, allowing you to get the drop on any unsuspecting foes.
Armed with a USB digital signal processing sound card, you can boost your audio and enhance noise cancellation to optimise your gaming experience. There are also simple controls to activate and deactivate Dolby 7.1 surround sound or quickly mute your mic when necessary. No more crying babies over chat, please.
Steelseries Arctis 7 White Gaming Headset
Wireless technology is a wonderful thing, but a poor battery life can completely ruin the experience. Thankfully there’s no need to worry with the Steelseries Arctis 7 gaming headset. Enjoy a whopping 24 hours of use before you need to plug it in to charge – perfect for those marathon gaming sessions.
The Arctis 7 continues to impress with its Discord-certified ClearCast microphone, which delivers studio-quality voice chat, along with background noise cancellation. And it doesn’t stop there – these cracking cans support DTS Headphone:X surround sound, providing 360 degrees of precision audio. Wait… is someone behind you?
Razer Kraken Green Gaming Headset
Sporting the Razer brand’s signature searing green colour, the Kraken Green Gaming Headset is more than just a fashion statement. Equipped with custom-tuned 50mm drivers to deliver a relentless audio experience, the ear cushions are also infused with cooling gel to keep your temples suitably chilled – something we didn’t know we really wanted until now – and the fabric used on the headband is designed to absorb excess heat from your noggin. There’s also a top-quality retractable microphone built-in, so you can chat to your squad and make them green with envy about your new headset.
Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless Gaming Headset
A combination of luxury materials and advanced technology makes the Arctis Pro Wireless an audiophile’s dream. Dual-Wireless technology offers lag-free 2.4G wireless lossless audio and Bluetooth mobile audio – ensuring connectivity across a number of devices – while premium Hi-Res speakers and the next-gen Headphone:X v2.0 delivers accurate, realistic and immersive audio that’s bound to astound. Once they’re on, you’ll never want to take them off… particularly as they’re built with AirWeave performance fabric ear cushions, which enable you to wear them comfortably for hours. We think we’ve heard enough.
