Top gaming headphones for Xbox, PS5, PC, and more in 2021

As important to consider as gaming mice or gaming keyboards, you want a headset that is comfortable yet practical. They double up as ways in which to listen to music or take calls too so it’s important to think about the style as well as whether you want a traditional wired or wireless headset to wear.

The greatest gaming headsets make it easier to enjoy your favourite games. They have excellent sound quality and are comfortable to wear, but it helps if they also look attractive. After all, no one wants to spend money on a flashy new gaming headset that will make you appear stupid when streaming to the masses.You need the perfect gaming headset for your system whether you just want a little more closeness while you play or you want to become the next great Twitch hit.

You’ll also want to consider your budget, as it’s possible to spend a little or a lot on the latest gaming headset depending on what you need from it. Whatever your plans, we’ve picked out the best gaming headsets you can buy right now.

How we tested

We tested numerous gaming headsets over the course of at least a month. We used them during regular gaming sessions of Fortnite, Overwatch, Resident Evil Village, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, and New World, as well as across many other games. When picking our favourites, we paid attention to how comfortable the headset felt during extended sessions, how good the audio sounded, and we looked at any other features each headset offered. We also considered how easy it was to use each of them on different consoles and with a PC and Mac.
