With the new generation of consoles out, you will want to get the full experience when gaming. You don’t just want to have the best television or monitor to get the best graphics; you also want to make sure you have optimal sound quality for your gaming sessions.
Headsets have become many gamers’ de facto method of hearing their game while they play, as they allow for noise-canceling and surround sound technology, all while not having to worry about disturbing anyone else in the room. Better yet, you can get a wireless headset that is not only affordable but does away with those annoying cables.
There are many headsets you can choose from out there, but we have our list, right here, of the best headsets you can be using on your brand new PlayStation 5 right now.
Astro’s newest headset is designed for both Xbox and PlayStation, meaning you won’t have to worry about it working with only one machine. However, you can buy the headset in either console’s color, and that means you have to get an additional adapter to use it for the other console. But even with that caveat, the featuring of an equalizer on the headset is amazing to customize your own experience to your liking.
This long-lasting wireless headset has been confirmed to work with the PlayStation 5 and offers great comfort and sound. It connect to the console via USB and comes with a charging station that you can easily slide your headset into and store.
HyperX has always put out solid products at reasonable prices. The sound quality on this set is good, providing just the right balance for about any scenario. Now, it won’t really blow you away with its bass, but it still is good enough to be worth it.
Razer has been an icon in the gaming accessory industry for a long time, and this headset is an example of why. They provide great audio quality and are incredibly comfortable to wear. They also come with a microphone that can detect your voice nearly flawlessly.
This headset was released with the PlayStation 4 and is still compatible with the PlayStation 5. Though it does not offer compatibility with the last console’s headset companion app, it still is a good option for anyone looking for quality sound and doesn’t want to pay too much for it.
The Pulse 3D headset was released alongside the PlayStation 5 and served as Sony’s official headset. It may be a little less comfortable than other options on this list, but it provides good sound, matches the console aesthetic, and does away with the bulky mic that you might find on other headsets.
This headset doesn’t have the well-built feel of other headsets, yet it comes at a lower price and offers excellent sound. Further, its ear cushions offer some impressive comfort to not cause you any pain during those long sessions.
This headset can connect to multiple consoles, not just your PlayStation 5, so it’s a really solid investment. It improves upon just about every part of its predecessor, the solid Arctis 7, and gives you solid audio quality as well.
This headset’s price is well worth it, as it is absolutely SteelSeries’ top option for headsets. It comes with a low-latency 2.4GHz wireless connectivity that allows for a near-perfect experience. Its battery will last more than 20 hours on a single charge as well and can be connected to so many more devices than just your console.
You don’t have to break the bank to get a great experience either with wireless headsets, which is where the Stealth 600 Gen 2 comes in. Its sound is really good for its price, and it feels fine to wear. The microphone is a little weird-looking for our taste but can fold into the headset to look good.
