It’s 2019 and if you’re still using a wired headset you need to get with the program. Wireless headsets are becoming more and more popular with gamers around the world. The ability to move around your room or house and not have to worry about a stupid cord is the best and the only way you can do that is with a wireless headset. Sure you could just take your headset off, but I personally like to stay on discord with my buddies or keep communicating with my team while I grab a snack in the kitchen. Wireless headsets have come a long way in both price and quality. When a good wireless headset costs as much as a good wired headset, it makes no sense to go with the wired one. We compiled a list of the top wireless gaming headsets of 2019 in different price ranges so you can find the best one for your budget. Read on and cut that wire!
Audio-Technica’s Premium Wireless Gaming Headset is the most expensive one on this list at the time of writing it but it is easily the best. With lag-free wireless operation in 2.4GHz, you will have dependable and quality real-time communication with your teammates. The boom mic this headset has is detachable should you not need it, but when you are using it your voice will sound crystal-clear to your team or anyone listening in. Wondering what you sound like or if your teammates can hear that fan in the background? Use the built-in mic monitor feature and hear exactly what everyone else is too!
This headset also features controls on the side that allow you to mute, raise or lower the volume, and change the surround sound setting. Most gamers buying wireless headsets are always concerned with battery life, and rightfully so! No one wants their headset to die in the middle of a heated battle. This Audio-Technica headset features 15 hours of battery life and can be used while charging allowing you to never miss a second of the conversation.
Upon purchasing, they also come with replaceable earpads should you need to replace the super comfortable, breathable earpads. If you find this headset is out of your price range, keep reading because the next one is our “budget-friendly” pick!
SLUB Bluetooth Gaming Headset (Low-Budget Pick)
The “budget-friendly” SLUB Bluetooth Gaming Headphones are an excellent choice if you’re looking to save, but still want good quality wireless headphones. With a longer battery life at 40 hours, you won’t have to keep recharging this bad boy every day – or even week! With comfortable earpads, you can even wear it all week if you’d like and never get that uncomfortable pressure we all get when we wear our headsets for too long. You know the one I’m talking about, where your cartilage folds on itself like a towel thrown into a corner of a room.
This headset also features a detachable mic like the last one and has light-up LEDs in the earpieces. With a range of 10 meters, you can easily walk around your house and never miss a second of the conversation.
This headset is compatible with almost all your video game consoles and your PC! Plug it into your Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, or your PS4 and get that same rich sound quality you get on your gaming computer. The battery life on this headset is smaller than the previous one at just 15 hours – but that is still a decent amount of time and it can be used while charging. The microphone on this headset does detach and can fold up when not in use. It is also an omnidirectional mic meaning you can move it any which way. With volume control buttons on the side of the earpiece, you can set different levels for both in-game volume and chat volume letting you be in control of exactly what you hear!
SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 Edition Wireless Gaming Headset (Mid-Range Pick)
The SteelSeries Arctis 7 is our best pick for someone with a slightly bigger budget, wants to get the most bang for their buck, but doesn’t want to drop a lot of money for a great wireless headset. This “middle of the road priced” wireless headset comes with a lot of great features.
With a battery life of 24 hours, this headset can stay wireless for a few days or even a week before you have to plug it in depending on how much you game. Like every wireless headset, you can still use it while it is charging as well. It also includes a 3.5mm wire in case you need to plug it into a device that doesn’t support USB like the Xbox One or even the switch.
With multiple controls on the earpieces, you can adjust the volume or even adjust the game and chat volume separately. The headset even comes with software from SteelSeries that is fully-loaded with audio customization options for a ton of programs including Discord and Spotify. The 2.4GHz connection ensures you get quality, lossless audio with ultra-low latency.
Whichever headset you pick, you’ll definitely appreciate the upgrade from wired to wireless. The freedom to walk around and not worry about wires or about them getting tangled is well worth it, especially when good quality wireless headsets cost as much as their wired counterparts!
