Top 10 Best Gaming Headsets 2021
Now, we all know that when playing any type of video game headphones are almost always essential. But which one is the best to choose? Headphones have been around for over 100 years! However, I’ve narrowed those millions of headphones down to 10 of the best gaming headsets you can buy in 2021.
What We’re Looking For In Gaming Headsets
Comfort: This is the starting point in making the best gaming headsets. Without comfort what’s the point in spending a lot of money on a headset. We test the comfort by spending a couple of hours wearing it, then asking ourselves, “Was it as comfortable as some of these higher-end headphones and/or “Could I wear it longer?”. If the headphone succeeds to make it through our comfort test then it’ll be faced with our next challenge.
Sound Quality: Sound quality is crucial if you’re trying to find a long-term headphone. Smooth but detailed sounds are what we are going for. Nothing to shy, or too bold. In even shorter terms we look for gaming headphones that are kind to our ears.
Mic Check: We usually test this by going to a party with friends. From there if they say that they can’t hear us about 5 times we know that this mic shouldn’t be put on a headphone.
Looks: This doesn’t have much to do with the overall quality of the headphones but we still look for this feature in a headphone. For me, without sleek and professional looks it doesn’t feel like a matured gaming headphone. These headphones are still affordable so don’t be worried about a $300 leather ear cushion.
Accessories: Sometimes gaming headphones will come with extra accessories. If this is the case, it’ll go straight to our top list. I’m just kidding. For an example of accessories, the Logitech G Pro X provides you with extra ear cushions, one having leatherette material and the extra ear cushions are made from cloth. This will get more pointers considering that you are getting more for less.
For these headphones to be on our best gaming headsets list, they must check off all these boxes. We spend hours on end running tests, finding flaws, and deciding if it’s good enough to be on our list. Now, here are our candidates.
