The Logitech G935 is a great gaming headset for both PC and consoles. The headset has DTS: X 2-dimensional sound so that you can estimate distance and depth better. Unfortunately this is only available on PC and not on consoles. There, this Logitech delivers stereo sound.

The leather ear cups are very comfortable, even for longer gaming sessions. You will also find programmable G-buttons with which you can switch profiles while gaming. What’s extra cool is that the headset has programmable RGB lighting. However, the battery life of 12 hours is shortened with this, so keep that in mind. The microphone of the headset contains a mute function and noise cancellation. While the quality isn’t great, it’s more than adequate for the average gamer. If you don’t want to spend 200-300 euros on a gaming headset, this Logitech G935 is our recommendation!

If you are looking for a good headset that does not belong to the most expensive models, the SteelSeries Arctis 7 is worth considering. This is perhaps one of the most comfortable gaming headsets out there. The adjustable headband has a “ski goggles” design, which makes it comfortable to wear on any head. You can also replace the headband if you prefer a different design. The earpads are also made of breathable material so that your ears feel fresh even during long gaming sessions.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7 has DTS: X dimensional sound so you hear sound exactly as the developers intended. Unfortunately this is only available on the PC. When purchasing, therefore, pay attention to which platform you want to use the headset, because the type of sound may differ (Dimensional, Surround, Stereo). The standard sound on this headset isn’t great, so you have to spend some time personalizing it. When you have done this, however, you have a great headset that is comfortable and also has a long range and long battery life.

Not everyone likes or thinks 7.1 surround sound is necessary for their gaming experience. In that case, we recommend the HyperX Cloud Flight gaming headset with great Stereo sound. This headset is great thanks to the well-adjustable headband. The artificial leather ear cups also cover your ears, so that you are completely cut off from the outside world. The microphone is also of excellent quality so that you can be heard clearly by others.

The HyperX Cloud Flight can be connected to all platforms, but does not work wirelessly on Xbox models. So keep that in mind when making your purchase. You can use the headset with or without the red LED lighting. However, the battery life without lighting will of course last a lot longer (about 30 vs. 13 hours). operating this headset is very easy via the buttons on the ear cups. In short: do you want a very comfortable headset that is not in the highest segment? Then the HyperX Cloud Flight is an excellent choice.

The SteelSeries Arctis 7 has DTS: X dimensional sound so you hear sound exactly as the developers intended. Unfortunately this is only available on the PC. When purchasing, therefore, pay attention to which platform you want to use the headset because the type of sound may differ (Dimensional, Surround, Stereo). The standard sound on this headset isn’t great, so you have to spend some time personalizing it. When you have done this, however, you have a great headset that is comfortable and also has a long range and long battery life.

The HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro is a very good mid-range gaming headset. Although this headset does not support 7.1 Virtual Sound, the quality of the sound is still very good. This is due to the Dual Chamber Drivers with which you can distinguish between high, mid and low frequencies. In other words: you can clearly hear the deep sounds of heavy bombs and gunshots while the quality of the background music remains clearly audible. How cool is that?

The HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro is easy to connect to any device via the 3.5mm cable. You can remove this cable and the microphone from the headset so that you can easily take it with you. The noise suppression ensures that you are clearly audible while gaming and with the over-ear design, you don’t get much of what happens outside of your game. Thanks to the adjustable headband and good ear cushion, this headset is also super comfortable. A real top gaming headset!

BUYER’S GUIDE

How to pick the best gaming headset?

You have decided that you want to buy a gaming headset. Only how do you make the right choice? There is an incredibly wide range, which can sometimes make it difficult to choose the right headset. We have therefore prepared a step-by-step plan for you with the most important decisions for buying a game headset. When you go through these steps you already have a much better idea of what you are looking for so that you can search more specifically for the best gaming headset for you.

StEp 1: YOUR platform

When you choose a gaming headset, you must first check whether the headset is suitable for your PC or specific console. Wired headsets with a 3.5mm connection can be connected to almost any PC and console. It is good to check if the software is compatible with your console, otherwise some functions may not work. When you buy a wireless gaming headset, it is even more important that it is made for your PC or specific console. This type of headsets are often platform specific. So pay attention.

StEp 2: wireless or wired

Just like with gaming mice and keyboards, you also have wireless and wired versions with headsets. The wireless versions are often more expensive than the wired headsets. It is therefore good to consider whether you think that the extra costs are worth it. Below we explain the pros and cons of both wired and wireless gaming headsets:

Wired Gaming Headsets
Pros: the wired gaming headsets can easily be connected to almost any PC and console with the 3.5mm connection. You do have to pay attention to whether the software works with your PC or console so that all functionalities work. Wired game headsets are often a bit lighter than the wireless versions, which can provide more wearing comfort.
Cons: the wire. Kinda obvious, but fact is…the cable can be really annoying. It can get in the way while gaming and you can’t just grab something in your room with your headset on. In addition, the cable is also prone to wear or breakage over time.

Wireless Gaming Headsets
Pros: freedom of movement. No cable to get in the way and if you need to grab something quickly, you can just hold up your headset. Super nice and definitely a very big advantage of the wireless game headset.
Cons: there are also a few drawbacks to the wireless headsets. Firstly, the battery can run out, this is not necessary with a wired version. It is therefore good to look at the battery life and also charge it regularly. Wireless game headsets are also often platform specific. So pay attention before you make the purchase whether it works on your PC or console.

Step 3: SOUND quality

Gaming is about experiencing. You immerse yourself in another world for a few hours and sound is an important part of that. The quality of the sound of your gaming headset is therefore an important part of your selection process. At the moment there are two different types of sound that are common, namely stereo and 7.1 virtual surround sound. There is also a new technology on the way that is not yet supported by all new software. This is called dimensional sound. Below we explain what you can expect for all three types of sound.

Stereo Sound
With Stereo sound, the sound comes from two audio channels. It is clear and full sound and especially nice when you listen to music and watch movies. During gaming, it can be a disadvantage that you can hear less well where opponents are because you cannot hear exactly where the sound is coming from. Still, Stereo Sound can be a good choice when you use your gaming headset for gaming as well as for listening to music and watching movies.

7.1 Virtual Surround Sound
This type of sound is a lot more advanced than stereo sound. With 7.1 virtual surround sound, sound is simulated from 7 different audio channels, so you can hear even better where the sound is coming from. This makes your gaming experience even richer and you can also better estimate where your opponents are. You can even use different settings per game via the software, although the disadvantage is that the software is not suitable for every console.

Dimensional Sound
Dimensional sound goes one step further than 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound in the spatiality of the sound. This allows you to hear even better where your opponents are. Although this is a very nice development, it is not yet supported by every game. So make sure your favorite game already supports this, otherwise you will buy this type of gaming headset mainly with an eye to the future.

StEp 4: comfort

Ear Cups (Type)
Gaming headsets can have two types of ear cups: on-ear or over-ear. With on-ear gaming headsets, the ear cup falls on your ear and is therefore not closed. The advantage is that this is less warm in the summer and that the sound is more natural because the acoustics are open. The disadvantage is that others can therefore also “enjoy” your sound. Maybe that’s why your girlfriend would prefer you to opt for an over-ear gaming headset. The ear cups cover your ears, so that you are completely closed off from the outside world (noise canceling). This makes the sound very intense and the bass also sounds stronger. The disadvantage can be that it can get very hot during summer game sessions.

Ear Cups (Quality)
In addition to the type of ear cup, the quality of the material of the ear cup is also very important for wearing comfort. Ear cups often consist of fabric or (fake) leather. The fabric version breathes better, which is nice on the warmer days. The (fake) leather ear cups wear out less quickly and insulate better. More expensive gaming headsets also sometimes have memory foam that molds to your head. This ensures even more wearing comfort.

Headband
The headband of a gaming headset distributes the weight of the headset over your head. It is therefore important that it fits well and does not have any annoying pressure points on your head. This can become irritating after a while. The better headsets therefore have adjustable headbands so that you can set the correct length for your head.

Weight
When you sit on a gaming headset for a while, the weight also plays a role in the wearing comfort. Cheaper models are often made of (relatively) heavy plastic and can feel unwieldy. More expensive headsets often contain lightweight aluminum parts, making the entire headset lighter. Wired gaming headsets are also often lighter than wireless versions because of the battery.

Step 5: CommunicatiON

A gaming headset has two important functions: listening and communicating. Listening has already been discussed in detail in the previous steps, the last step is looking at the communication possibilities of your headset. If you want to talk to your team during the game, it is of course important that they understand you well. Two things are important here: noise canceling and a mute function.

Noise Cancelling
This function ensures that no sound other than your voice comes through your microphone. No distractions from your keyboard or TV running in the background.
Mute function
With some headsets you can easily mute your microphone so that you can have a brief chat with someone else if necessary. Your team will then not be able to listen in.
