Which Are The Best Wireless Gaming Headsets?
5. Corsair Void Pro
Gaming is one of our favorite past times, and those who grew up with this hobby can’t shake it off in adulthood as well. When you are an adult you have more funds that you can invest in this hobby and one of the first upgrades you can do to make the experience more comfortable is to invest in a pair of wireless gaming headphones, and if you want a budget pair you have to take a look at the Corsair Void Pro RGB. These headphones besides their price deliver a super solid experience with superb sound quality, nice and comfortable design, nice microphone and many more features that will please every gamer on the budget.
When it first released the Corsair Void Pro was released as a premium headset with a price to match, and the prices have dropped now, but the premium quality and design are still there. IT has a plastic design all around and it is pretty robust overall delivering confidence in it. Inside the plastic construction, it features metal chassis to hold it together, and the padding on the earcups and headband is pretty serious as it is thick. On each earcup, you will spot the Corsair logo that has RGB lighting in it to deliver some gaming vibes.
These headphones are pretty light as well and according to my weighing, they are just 13.8-ounces in total, meaning that combined with the amazing padding and clamping force you can wear these headphones for long gaming sessions. The initial setup is pretty easy and you can do it all with the transmitter plugged into the USB port for easy pairing. The Corsair Utility Engine software will also deliver you plenty of adjustability and customization both in the RGB and sound department so you can personalize these headphones to your taste.
The sound quality of these headphones doesn’t disappoint in any category, as it is one of the most balanced headphones that I have ever seen. They deliver a 7.1 surround sound that is perfect for gaming but also does a good job of delivering a solid performance for music and movies, as they do not lack in any frequency range. The battery life is also pretty solid as it delivered 12 hours with the backlighting on and about 16 when you turn it off, which is pretty solid.
If you want a budget pair of wireless gaming headphones don’t look further.
4. HyperX Cloud Flight
For the users that want to get the most bang for their buck without spending a fortune, I would recommend the HyperX Cloud Flight. The brand has delivered some pretty good wired headsets but this time around the wireless Cloud Flight has hit the sweet spot. These headphones rock superb comfort levels, amazing design, great build quality, sharp sound, responsive microphone and a great battery life that will seriously impress you.
In terms of design and aesthetics, the HyperX Cloud Flight is very subdued and conservative in comparison to the other headphones in the company’s lineup. It is very traditional overall and pretty much non-assuming, built to deliver comfort and functionality. On each earcup, you will see the LED-backlit HyperX logo for a bit of flash, which I wouldn’t prefer but overall these headphones are pretty much excellent.
The controls of the device are good as well, as the overall layout of them is pretty much excellent and very similar to other headsets in the market. I liked that the microphone is detachable, but not retractable or flexible, but it is good for the money. The overall build quality of this device is great despite rocking an all-plastic build, which makes them pretty lightweight at 300 grams, which combines great with the foam padding on the earcups and headband to deliver tremendous comfort.
The biggest selling point of the HyperX Cloud Flight is the wireless connection that is seamless and very strong, also it rocks a lengthy battery life of 30 hours in total. The HyperX Cloud Flight delivers 2.0 stereo surround sound, which is great for gaming and directional sound. It is equipped with a pair of 50mm drivers that sound punchy and a little bass-heavy for my taste, but for gaming, it is very handy. Overall I can say that the sound performance is pretty balanced and delivers a natural experience, especially for a gaming headset. The microphone was also pretty solid and delivered a sharp and clear sound without emitting any background noise, superb even for streamers.
If you want to get the most for your money than you have to opt for these.
3. Razer Nari Ultimate
Coming up next we have a pair of headphones that come from the gaming giant Razer, the Nari Ultimate. This headphone is one of the best in the market, combining a wide range of desirable features in a single body. For example, these headphones are extremely stylish, deliver the most comfort in the market, and on top of that, they have the most powerful companion software in the market.
In terms of design, these headphones are pretty incredible in my opinion as the earcups look like they are double, hence the Ultimate design. While they aren’t appropriate for commuting or in the public since they are pretty large for a commuter headset. Most of the size is due to the built-in haptic technology. Take the size aside they are one of the most attractive headphones in the market with an RGB lit Razer logo on the outer part of the earcups and pretty much solid overall build quality.
In terms of comfort, the Razer Nari Ultimate’s are great and they have plenty of padding due to their size, and you can also carry them comfortably even if you carry eyeglasses due to the indented eyewear channels which are not visible. The auto-adjusting headband also delivered a pretty good experience and just enhanced the comfort levels significantly. This device works hand to hand with the Razer Synapse software which is perfect for customizing your audio to your taste, for example, you can activate the THX Spatial Audio for a solid surround sound experience, Voice Clarity, and even Haptic Sensitivity.
The biggest feature of the Razer Nari Ultimate’s is the haptic technology dubbed as the Razer HyperSense which delivers a rumble or vibrations based on the audio and delivers a great immersive experience especially when gaming. However, you can also turn it off or decrease its power to get it right for you.
In terms of musical performance it also operated pretty much excellently and I didn’t notice any weak point, regardless of the genre and overall I am very impressed by what this device offers, definitely one of the best in the market, and if you want the most comfort this is it.
2. Sennheiser GSP 670
If I had to suggest a pair of gaming headphones for those that like to listen to music a lot, then the choice is very easy the Sennheiser GSP 670. These are the definite best wireless gaming headsets in the market when it comes to sound quality, and on top of that, they have extremely intuitive controls, good battery life, solid connection, and a nice microphone to top it off, just great overall, nothing less expected of Sennheiser though.
The Sennheiser GSP 670 has a functionality first design going on with their body that I am quite impressed with. They do lack the RGB lights that look over the top and adopt a functional and utilitarian design that will gather tons of fans. In terms of build quality despite being made out of plastic to keep them lightweight these headphones rock an amazing build quality that inspires confidence, and of course, they justify the premium price of these headphones.
The Sennheiser GSP 670’s maybe a little bulky and big when you look at them but they feel pretty light in hands and also on the head. The thick padding also does its job excellently and I think the fit may be a bit snug but it distributes the weight evenly all around so you get the best ergonomics here. The controls of the device also feel pretty solid and deliver a super intuitive experience. They all are placed very well to the body and you will know when you press them and the programmable button also makes things better than ever.
The companion software of this beast is pretty good as well delivering a no-frills customization experience for the button that I mentioned and also the soundscape of the device, allowing you to get the best custom sound. The wireless connection is also perfect and it delivers a solid and reliable experience without interruptions or any lag, the range is pretty well too.
In terms of p[erformance, these headphones deliver a super exciting sound, nothing short of excellence, and I didn’t expect anything less from Sennheiser here.
The sound was extra neutral and the flat response allowed you to get the best from every gaming session, truly marvelous. With a great sound and microphone performance, the Sennheiser GSP 670’s are a safe pick.
1. SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless
Coming up next we have the definite best wireless gaming headsets in the market coming in from the SteelSeries Arctis series, the Pro Wireless. These gaming headsets are the most advanced pair in the market, coming in with a premium price point, but that is all justified with the quality and performance of these, such as the Hi-Res certified audio, the wireless transmitter, microphone that is best in class, tons of comfort, dual battery system, great design and many more. These headphones do it all, nothing to top them off.
In the design department, these headphones deliver some great looks, just like their predecessors of the Arctis series, and in my opinion, these are one of the better-designed gaming headphones in the market. I would take them on my daily commute without looking out of place, and overall the looks are excellent. I can comfortably say that these headphones have a premium feel to them thanks to their high-quality plastic and aluminum frame that enhances the feeling of it. For customization, you also have the removable earcups that can be switched with different ones so you can get the best one for your preference. Also, the RGB lighting and the mic are customizable as well to add a touch of personality.
I can comfortably wear these headphones for hours, as they are super light, have thick padding and the intuitive headband design that is pretty special to the company delivers the best amount of comfort in the market. The USB wireless transmitter is also the same that was in the predecessor of the Arctis Pro. It is a good device though and it doesn’t need any change, as it has a clear OLED screen, good UI, and the charger space for your spare battery. While we are at it I should mention that each of the batteries delivers about 10 hours of playtime and it takes about an hour to recharge on of them, which is super fast.
In terms of connectivity, this device connects to PS4 and PC incredibly fast but doesn’t offer Xbox one connectivity and not a lot of headphones do, to be honest. You can also connect to both PC and PS4 at the same time if you need to.
In terms of performance, this device delivered great sounds for gaming and it was super rich in the detail department regardless of the game. It also goes pretty loud without any distortion meaning that it is equipped with high-quality parts. I also like that the music performance was top-notch and there were no weak points, definitely no disadvantages with these headphones.
