Headsets are an essential part of your gaming gear. Now if you also want to enjoy the comfort of wireless headset then there is a lot to choose from. Wireless gaming headsets are popular because you have to leave cables on your PC or console. This gives you a lot more freedom of movement as you can continue your Discord call while standing or moving around your room.

But the extra comfort comes with a price tag. Most wireless gaming headsets are more expensive than wired ones. But there are reasonable priced models for good sound, comfortable fit and long battery life.

5.Razer BlackShark V2 Pro

Looking for a high-quality light-weight headset? Razer’s BlackShark V2 Pro is only 320 grams lighter and offers breathable knitting on ear cushions. Which makes them not only comfortable, but also reduces the buildup of sweat and heat during long sessions. With an additional 3.5mm jack you can use it for the console or even for your mobile.

Long battery life :

The BlackShark V2 Pro uses a 2.4 GHz wireless connection with a runtime of up to 24 hours. Unfortunately you need to check the synapse software from the razor to check the current charge level instead of looking at it intuitively.

The BlackShark V2 Pro has 50mm Titan drivers that produce a robust audio experience. You can enhance this even more with THX spatial audio technology that creates 7.1 surround sound. The microphone on the Razer headset is also excellent and works well with its passive noise cancellation.

Strengths

  • High comfort
  • Excellent 7.1 sound
  • Very good microphone
  • Long battery life
  • 3.5mm jack

Weaknesses

  • Charge levels only accessible through software

4.SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless

Our most expensive recommendation is Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless. But the price tag of $350 dollars is well justified. Your purchase includes an additional battery that you can charge when using another, ensuring you never have to set the headset aside to charge.

External transmitter :

The additional battery is charged on the external transmitter included with The Arcis Pro Wireless. The transmitter base station can connect not only to a PC or console, but also to your mobile via Bluetooth or cable.

The simple design is extremely comfortable and looks high-class to boot. Ear cushions can be separated and washed separately if necessary. The audio-wise steelseries headset passes all the tests. 7.1 The details of the surround sound are more well balanced and even the microphone has special noise cancellation to ensure quality communication.

  • 2 Exchangeable batteries
  • High comfort
  • Excellent 7.1 sound
  • Multiple jacks and connections available
  • Washable ear cushions

Weaknesses

  • High price tag
  • Ears can build up heat over long sessions
  • Microphone is not detachable

3.Logitech G733

If a good gaming headset should also stand out for you in its design, you should check out the G733. You can buy classic designs in white or black but other combinations are also available to you. The headset also has stylish LED stripes on the earbuds and can also replace the headband for a more coluful one if you wish. 16.7 million different colors of LEDs can be adjusted with sound options in the G Hub software.Despite all the extras at 280 grams the entire headset remains light and sits comfortably even during long gaming sessions. You can charge the Logitech G733 via USB and has a runtime of up to 20 hours.

Trumpcard DTS Headphone:X 2.0

The G733’s 40mm drivers are great when gaming or listening to music and provide harmonic and strong audio. You can enable the 7.1 Surround Sound DTS headphones: x2.0 through the software and enhance the quality even more. The microphone unfortunately has a slightly weaker link than sound because the quality output is only average.

Strengths

  • Fair pricing
  • High comfort
  • Excellent 7.1 sound
  • Exchangeable headband
  • Very light (278 gram)

Weaknesses

  • Average microphone

2.HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Wireless

HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Wireless is a great budget wireless gaming headset for $80 dollars. The two 40mm drivers are responsible for solid but not excellent stereo sound. If you want a full premium that’s not enough, but for many cases it’s more than enough. Audio is only received via a wireless connection, so you have no way to hook it to your PC or console via USB or other means.You can charge it via a small USB-C cable and the battery will serve you for up to 17 hours.

Simple but comfortable budget headset

The very light HyperX Cloud Stinger core at 240 grams is without fancy decorations like wireless LED lighting. But that doesn’t mean it’s uncomfortable. With a metal slider you can adjust the headband until it fits. The microphone can’t be separated or muted separately, but you can disable it by pushing it to the side.

  • Affordable
  • Very light (244 Gram)
  • Comfortable

Weaknesses

  • Plastic Chassis
  • Microphone not detachable
  • Short charging cable

1.Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless

Simply judging the headset by its name “Virtuoso” you will expect unprecedented sound. And the Courser headset is doing well in that department. With two 50mm neodym drivers, Virtuoso RGB Wireless provides dynamic and balanced sound. The microphone is also Discord-certified, has great quality and can also be detached if necessary.The lightweight aluminum headband provides high stability and also provides comfort through the memory foam earpad. You need to take a little more care with earbuds because good-looking designs carry a risk of scratches.

Wireless, USB or 3.5mm connection

  • High comfort
  • Excellent 7.1 sound
  • Hi-Res Audio over USB
  • Long Battery Life

Choosing your Wireless Gaming Headset :

There are many things you need to check out when shopping for a wireless gaming headset. Here are the most important factors when deciding on your headset:

  • Connection and Range: Wireless headsets have different modes of connection. Either Bluetooth or radio. Bluetooth is much more common and compatible with other devices (such as your mobile), but its range is low. Radio connections usually require an additional USB adapter but offer better range and quality. Some headsets also provide wired connections via USB or 3.5mm jacks.
  • Battery life: Wireless headsets require batteries to run. Most models offer more than 10 hours of runtime and can be charged quickly. Recharging is mostly done via USB and should not take more than an hour. Premium models like the Steelseries Arctis Pro come with an extra battery so you don’t need to stop using the headset due to a juice run out.
  • Ergonomics: A headset may have the best features and looks, but in the end it all comes down to how well it fits. If it is inconvenient or sits loose then you should look for another model.
  • Controls: Ideally a headset should be quick and easy to configure, even while playing. This helps a lot if the device has buttons to mute the microphone or volume control on the headset. If you also use it to listen to music or don’t always need a microphone, it may also be useful for a detachable mic or at least being adjustable.
  • Microphone: Communication is definitely important in many games. A good headset in voice transmission should be clear and ideally also offers noise cancellation to support clear-cut com during the game.
  • Around or stereo? Good audio is definitely a must. But for competitive players you may have to look for a surround sound headset. Audio can give you important signals to help you detect your opponents, especially when playing Shooter. If you’re focusing on 2D games that don’t require environmental sounds you can stick to the stereo. Surround sound headsets usually also have an on-board sound card, Some also provide equalizers or other additional functions.
