The Best Gaming Headsets for Professional Gamers

Follow Us

For online gaming, you require a good headset (or, if you like, gaming headphones). Without one, you won’t have a dependable way to disparage the opposition or plan your guild’s or team’s tactics. Unexpectedly, gaming headsets are useful workplace supplies as well.

Because of this, we think it’s critical to thoroughly evaluate as many gaming headsets as we can fit our ears into. We’ve been doing it for a very long time, so we’re very good at knowing what sounds amazing and what will make you get lost in some online battlefield’s pandemonium. I’ve compiled a list of some of the top headsets for 2022 below so you won’t have to put up with poor audio quality any longer.

The dozens of gaming headphones that the PC Gamer hardware team and I tested to come up with this list of the top ones. At both ends of the price range, these headphones provide gamers with the greatest sound.

You have a range of options, from inexpensive, over-ear, cordless, e-sports-focused wired earpieces to basic wired earpieces with simulated surround sound. The one that best suits your needs and budget should be chosen. Check out our choices and the reasons why we like them to get started.

The Best Gaming Headsets for Professional Gamers of 2023

1. ASUS ROG DELTA S

The highly outstanding Asus ROG Delta S(opens in new tab) headset from gaming hardware veterans Asus is compatible with nearly all devices, but the customization and equaliser software is only accessible for Windows. Anyone who is bent on getting a wireless pair of headphones won’t be happy with this, but everyone else should give it serious thought.

It connects to a variety of devices through USB-C (or USB-A), including PCs and gaming consoles, and it provides audio of the finest calibre, whether you want to jam out to music or need to hear every detail during intense gaming sessions.

  • ASUS ROG Delta S Gaming Headphones have a high-resolution ESS 9281 with QUAD DAC technology and support for MQA technology to offer incredibly clear, realistic audio that gives you the edge to win.
  • Noise-cancelling headphones from AI The unidirectional, removable mic is intended to cut down on up to 95% of the more than 50 million different types of background noise, including chitchat, keyboard clatter, and mouse clicks. The microphone is approved by TeamSpeak and Discord.

2. HyperX Cloud Alpha Wireless – Gaming Headset

Perhaps the most lauded item on this site is the HyperX Cloud Alpha. On the team, we all adore it, but HyperX recently cut the chord on its best set of cans. The new, enormous battery is this headset’s main selling point. In wireless mode, you may expect a battery life of up to 300 hours while keeping the headset relatively light and comfortable. It’s a really significant accomplishment, and I think HyperX has succeeded.

This unit reported having roughly 80% charge when it was first opened, so I chose to leave it at that level to see how well that held. I listened to music throughout the day at work, and when I checked the battery again, I swear it still stated 80%.

  • Play with confidence knowing you can play wirelessly for up to 300 hours on a single charge. Wireless independence is offered by the quick 2.4GHz connection without compromising audio quality.
  • With its precise sound localisation and simulated 3D sound staging, DTS Spatial Audio will help you increase your audio advantage and immersion.
