There are various competing headset brands on the market today, many of which are equally highly recommendable. Often the choice is dependent on what extra features you want to have. Having these features will, of course, raise the price. Here are some of the best options for hours of fun during the holidays.
For those who want a solid wireless headset that’s not too steep in price, there’s the Corsair Void. While the company was more popular in past decades for their RAM memory sticks, it has since branched out to casings, keyboards, and other PC peripherals. Like all other wireless choices, the Void still requires charging. But not having that connected cord makes for hassle-free gaming, especially when you need to go AFK.
The next thing to consider is whether you want virtual or true digital surround sound. Some headsets can use stereo drivers to recreate multi-positional audio and deliver a surround- sound effect into your ears. But the authentic surround-sound headset uses multiple drivers in each earcup. The former will be lighter and significantly cheaper, of course. A great option for a virtual one is the HyperX Cloud II, while the Asus Strix 7.1 is your go-to for a not-too-pricey true surround-sound audio.
Finally, if money is not an issue, then go for the complete package with the SteelSeries Arctis 7. Top tech sites would recommend this super comfortable, wireless headset with 7.1 surround sound and an option to attach a 3.5mm cable to other devices. It can also double as a sleek-looking headphone with its retractable mic.
