Our best gaming headsets 2020 guide is the only one you need, covering all the finest gaming headphones available on the market right now - you can use it to narrowing down the best set of gaming cans no matter what type of gamer you are, what gaming devices you've got, or what budget you're working to. We've packed our round-up with a wide range of top-tier options: the best gaming headset for PC, the best gaming headset for the PS4, and the best headset for the Xbox One are all covered. We've also got the best gaming headsets for the Nintendo Switch, if you're a portable gamer. While these headsets cover a wide variety of price points, at no point have we compromised on audio quality - we know that your games have to sound their very best, and these devices will put your ears right in the middle of the action, whether you're hearing birdsong or planets exploding.We absolutely won't accept sup-par sonics at T3.
Underneath our list of top gaming headphones, we've also included some useful advice on what to look for if you're shopping for a new gaming headset, wireless or otherwise, which you can apply no matter what your situation. The SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless is the best gaming headset in the world for Sony PlayStation 4 gamers. The best wireless gaming headset on the market today, the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless, is an awesome piece of kit, delivering a best-in-class audio experience for PS4 gamers. The headset not only features a dual-wireless audio system that allows for both 2.4G and Bluetooth connections simultaneously (meaning you can listen to music or chat while gaming), it also comes packing Hi-Res capable speaker drivers and lossless audio too. A very impressive 40-feet range, well-built wireless transmitter, lightweight aluminium construction, and swappable dual-battery power system complete a superb all-round package. For Xbox One gamers the LucidSound LS35X are a great gaming headset choice. LucidSound is one T3's favourite gaming headset makers thanks its ability to deliver top-draw audio reproduction and stylish, comfortable builds at attractive price points.
T3 was very impressed with the older LucidSound LS40 and LS20 gaming headsets, for example, which both offered excellent quality and value for money. And, pleasingly, this time around the headset maker has returned with the absolutely stunning LucidSound LS35X Wireless Surround Sound Gaming Headset for Xbox One. On top of the usual excellent audio reproduction via custom-tuned 50mm speakers with neodymium magnets and lush build quality, the big sell here is that the LS35X connects wirelessly directly to the Xbox One without any additional cables or a base station. What's more, the LS35X also automatically configures itself as well, making it a true plug-and-play product - you can just concentrate on the gaming. Throw in dual mics with mic monitoring, a delightfully lightweight build, and top surround sound capabilities, and it's easy to see how the LS35X gaming headset is one of the absolute best on the market today. A must-see for any Xbox One gamer looking to upgrade. PC gamers are spoilt in terms of audio quality and customisation with the Elite Atlas Aero.
The Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero should be one of the very first gaming headsets PC gamers consider when shopping for an upgrade. The reason for this is not just the hardware package the headset delivers, which partners an future-industrial, understated and mature aesthetic with high-end build quality and top-rate audio reproduction, but the fact that it then allows audiophile-level customisation through the Turtle Beach Control Studio Windows application. The Turtle Beach Control Studio aesthetically looks a bit old-fashioned (it reminded T3 of Hi-Fi software from the turn of the century), with sliders, buttons and toggles left, right and centre, along with tabs, settings and more. However, the control it grants over the Elite Atlas Aero is truly first rate, with everything from treble, bass and dialogue levels, through mic variables, noise and volume, and onto high-level features like Superhuman Hearing and 3D Audio tweakable. Go into audio settings and the software even lets you start setting values in equaliser profiles, including Game, Chat and Microphone EQ. Rumbles, explosions, vocals, atmospheric effects like wind and leaves, or in-game effects from vehicle engines and more can be prioritised or downplayed as desired.
