The best PC gaming headsets of 2019

Thanks to Intel Coffee Lake Refresh processors combined with Nvidia Turing graphics, the best gaming PCs on the market right now have never been more powerful. 

That means there’s never been a better time to pick up one of the best PC gaming headsets. Having high quality sound, after all, is essential for an immersive gaming experience, especially since many gaming monitors don’t have built-in speakers these days. And, while there are some that do, they just won’t do your PC games justice like a dedicated PC gaming headset will. 

The best PC games provide rich audio, so you don’t want to miss out. Whether you’re looking for an immersive audio experience as you die over and over again in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, or you just want to get some end-game grinding done in the Division 2, you’ll want either the best computer speakers, or one of the best PC gaming headsets.

The best PC gaming headsets we've chosen have all the bells and whistles that the best computer speakers will offer, but with one key difference – privacy. For anyone that wants to avoid waking their roommates (or neighbors) late at night, check out the best PC gaming headsets on the market 2019 has to offer instead.

HyperX Cloud Revolver S

HyperX Cloud Revolver S

1. HyperX Cloud Revolver S

Elite feel and sound at a premium price

Interface: Wired (USB) | Features: 7.1-channel surround sound, 50mm drivers, Dolby DSP, 3.5mm jack

Excellent all-around sound

All-day comfort

Finicky mic positioning

Cable may be too long

When we first sat down to review the HyperX Cloud Revolver S, we were a tad divided. On one hand, it boasts fantastic 7.1-channel surround sound, delivered through Dolby's trademark digital signal processor. On the other, it's extremely pricey when compared to other similar headsets. Fortunately, as one of Kingston's most subdued pair of cans we've ever seen (or heard), the pristine comfort and top-notch sound more than make up for its high price and oddly placed detachable mic. And that’s why this tops our list of the best PC gaming headsets.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro

SteelSeries Arctis Pro

2. SteelSeries Arctis Pro

PC gaming’s best kept secret

Interface: Wired (USB) | Features: 40mm drivers, Retractable boom microphone, DTS Headphone:X v2.0, RGB lighting, Included DAC

Included DAC 

Audiophile worthy sound 

Surround sound not great 

SteelSeries is known for offering impeccable audio, but the SteelSeries Arctis Pro takes things to another level. This headset doesn’t just give you immersive surround sound for all the explosive action of your favorite games, but thanks to its included DAC (digital to audio converter), the Arctis Pro also serves you well when listening to your favorite tunes. One of the best PC gaming headsets to date, this one’s a little on the expensive side, but when you consider just how comfortable and excellent sounding this headset is, well, it’s easy to see why it’s one of the best gaming headsets you can buy today.

Astro A50 Wireless

Astro A50 Wireless

3. Astro A50 Wireless

The best general use headset just got better

Interface: Wireless | Features: Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound; Works with PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and mobile; Astro Audio; 5.8GHz wireless tech with MixAmp; 6.0mm uni-directional noise cancelling mic; USB charging with base station

Full Dolby 7.1 Surround sound

Supremely comfortable

Finnicky charging cradle

Back when the original Astro A50 launched, we called it a ‘game-changing, experience-enhancing headset.’ Thankfully, its wireless successor follows in its footsteps – while adding in wireless functionality. It’s not ready to rock with your PC, but with PS4, Xbox One and legacy consoles as well – a headset that’s robust and versatile.

Beyerdynamic Custom Game

Beyerdynamic Custom Game

4. Beyerdynamic Custom Game

Gaming never sounded so good

Interface: Wired (3.5mm) | Features: Sound Slider, Soft ear pads, Changeable design covers, Detachable cable

Extremely comfortable

Impressive audio quality

Kind of expensive

While it’s pricier than we’d like, the Beyerdynamic CUSTOM Game is one of the best PC gaming headsets we’ve used in a while. It doesn’t feature flashy surround sound or wireless functionality, unfortunately. However, this headset excels in two of the most important categories: sound and comfort. Seriously, once you put it on and experience your games in headphones this good, there’s no looking back.

Corsair HS50 Stereo Gaming Headset

Corsair HS50 Stereo Gaming Headset

5. Corsair HS50 Stereo Gaming Headset

The budget king

Interface: Wired (analog) | Features: 50mm drivers, Easy on-ear volume and mute controls, Multi-platform compatibility

Strong stereo sound

Excellent value

Mic easily misplaced

Usually when you're buying anything, including gaming peripherals, you get what you pay for. You don't go into Walmart, pick up a $50/£50 gaming headset and expect to be blown away, at least typically. Well, Corsair takes this rule and turns it on its head. The Corsair HS50 is, for the budget gamer, the best PC gaming headset you can buy today. Retailing at $50 in the US, the HS50 has sound and mic quality that rivals headsets that are twice as expensive. Everything, down to the build materials, radiates quality. If you don't mind giving up some extra bells and whistles – like 7.1 surround and Bluetooth connectivity, for example – then you need to take a look at the Corsair HS50.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless

SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless

6. SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless

A wireless headset with wired sound

Interface: Wireless (Bluetooth) | Features: Dual-battery charging system, Bluetooth connectivity, 40mm drivers

Lossless audio 

Convenient dual battery system 

Expensive 

Compromises are a part of everyday life, but nobody actually likes making them. Lucky for you, you won’t have to with the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless. With it, you can get high quality lossless audio playback with a wireless headset. And, when you add the unique and ultra-convenient dual-battery charging system that lets you wear this headset in perpetuity to the mix, you have a recipe for one of the best PC gaming headsets we've ever gotten our hands on. If you have the cash, and you absolutely need the best wireless headphones money can buy, this is your best bet.

Creative Sound BlasterX H7 Tournament Edition

Creative Sound BlasterX H7 Tournament Edition

7. Creative Sound BlasterX H7 Tournament Edition

Improving a perfect formula

Interface: Wired (USB and Analog) | Features: 50mm drivers, reinforced steel and aluminum build, detachable and flexible mic

Very comfortable

Clear, accurate sound

Mids and highs unbalanced

Creative has made a name for itself over the ears for crafting sublime audio products – and the Creative Sound BlasterX H7 Tournament Edition further cements that legacy. Instead of just sitting and iterating on the winning formula of its previous products, Creative gives the Sound BlasterX H7 a complete overhaul, resulting in a PC gaming headset that looks just as good as it sounds. If you’re looking for a comfortable, solid and meaty-sounding headset, the Creative Sound BlasterX H7 Tournament Edition is one of the best PC gaming headsets today.

Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset

Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset

8. Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset

Substance over style

Interface: Wired (Analog) | Features: Passive noise isolation, Pro-G drivers, Detachable Mic, Dolby Atmos support

Subdued design

Comfortable for long periods  

Bass can be too heavy 

The Logitech G Pro gaming headset boasts raw performance over your traditional ‘gamer aesthetic’, and it’s comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time. This headset doesn’t offer much else, but it doesn’t need to. The Logitech G Pro Gaming Headset focuses squarely on providing excellent quality, rather than filling out a sheet of bells and whistles. If value is what you’re looking for, the Logitech G Pro might be the best PC gaming headset for you.

Razer Nari Ultimate

9. Razer Nari Ultimate

Feel the game

Interface: Wireless | Features: 8-hour battery life, HyperSense haptic feedback, compatible with many devices, 50mm drivers

Great sound

Tons of connectivity

Haptic vibrations are divisive

Anyone can simply listen to their games, but with the Razer Nari Ultimate, you could feel them as well. This gaming headset has haptic motors in the ear cups that makes your ears vibrate. That’s enough to make this at least an interesting headset, but when paired with the long battery life, amazing sound quality and comfortable build, it’s easily one of the best gaming headsets out there. Do yourself a favor and turn off the haptic feedback, even when you’re listening to music.

Astro A20

10. Astro A20

The best of both worlds

Interface: Wireless | Features: Long-lasting battery life, Astro Command Center software, console compatibility

High quality sound

Sturdy, comfortable build

Expensive for its class

If you're looking for one of the best PC gaming headsets, but the $300 price tags on those high-end headsets make your stomach turn, you should take a look at the Astro A20. Boasting solid stereo sound performance in a wireless headset, not to mention the stunning 15-hour battery life, this headset has all the necessary features that you might want in its price range. Sure, it doesn't have surround sound, but it more than makes up for it with its economy and battery life.

Asus ROG Strix Fusion 700

11. Asus ROG Strix Fusion 700

Interface: Wireless (Bluetooth) | Features: 7.1-channel surround sound, 50mm Neodymium drivers, Bluetooth, Built-in DAC

 Great sound quality 

 Aesthetic 

 Expensive 

With its Republic of Gamers brand, Asus has built a reputation for being the name behind some of the best gaming peripherals that constantly meet consumer standards. The Asus ROG Strix Fusion 700 joins their ranks. Packed with 50mm Neodymium drivers and Bluetooth compatibility, this gaming headset offers excellent sound quality without being tethered with a wire. It’s even compatible with other gaming platforms, so you won’t have to juggle around different headsets. It’s a little expensive, but considering how good this headset sounds and how versatile it is, we’d say it’s worth it.

HyperX Cloud Flight

HyperX Cloud Flight

12. HyperX Cloud Flight

The longest lasting wireless gaming headset

Interface: : Wireless | Features: Long-lasting battery life, durable, adjustable steel slider, PC and PS4 compatibility, detachable noise-cancellation microphone

30 hour battery life

Great sound quality 

Tad pricier than its competitors

The HyperX Cloud Flight is a long-lasting wireless gaming headset that boasts up to 30 hours of battery life. This means you’ll likely get two full days of gaming in between full charges. There is a catch, however – unlike the Cloud Flight’s competition, namely the Astro A20, this gaming headset only has stereo sound, ditching any surround sound implementation. You can thankfully get around it by playing around with the Dolby Access app, though, and the sound profile is balanced enough to make this a non-issue, making this one of the best PC gaming headsets in 2019.

Corsair HS70 Wireless Gaming Headset

13. Corsair HS70 Wireless Gaming Headset

Making a great headset wireless

Interface: Wireless | Features: Corsair CUE, Virtual 7.1 surround, Discord-certified unidirectional microphone

 Great audio for gaming 

 Mic supports ducking 

 No way to store mic 

Corsair rolled out one of the best PC gaming headsets late last year with the Corsair HS50, and now, it has made it even better by making it wireless and flourishing it with virtual surround sound capabilities. These features on their own would make a great gaming headset, but when you add in the fantastic Corsair CUE software on top of it, it makes a complete package that would make a great addition to your gaming setup.

Corsair Void Pro RGB Wireless

Corsair Void Pro RGB Wireless

14. Corsair Void Pro RGB Wireless

Corsair's nailed it again

Interface: : Wireless | Features: : 50mm drivers, noise-cancelling microphone, RGB lighting, Dolby Headphone 7.1 audio

Great sound quality

Nice design

Only the logo is RGB

It wasn't that long ago that Corsair was solely known for PC components. However, over the last five years or so, it has arguably become better known for its gaming peripherals. With products like the Corsair Void RGB Wireless, it's not hard to see why. While at first glance, some may scoff at the asking price, the Void Pro RGB Wireless delivers on that price point with great build quality, fantastic sound fidelity and – perhaps most importantly – RGB lighting. Plus, if you've already got a full arsenal of Corsair peripherals, the Void Pro RGB Wireless fits in nicely, and can even synchronize lighting effects with other peripherals through the Corsair Utility Engine.

Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tournament

Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tournament

15. Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tournament

Loud and clear

Interface: Wired (USB and 3.5mm) | Features: Prospecs glasses relief, Multi-platform support, 50mm drivers

 Comfortable 

 High sound quality 

 Kind of expensive 

If you're the type of gamer who isn't afraid to let the world know you're playing games, the Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tournament might just be the best PC gaming headset for you. Not only is it supremely comfortable to wear, but its 50mm drivers mean that sound quality is always top notch – even if it could use a bit more bass in the mix. You really do have to be into the 'gamer aesthetic' however, as its plastic build and orange highlights personify the style. Still, if you can get past the looks and the price tag, there's a lot to love about the Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tournament.
