✅ TOP 5: Best Gaming Headset 2020


Are you looking for the best gaming headset? In this video, we will top gaming headsets
on the market. Before we get started with our video, we have
included links in the description for each product mentioned, so make sure you check
those out to see which is in your budget range. Starting off at number 1 we have the SteelSeries
Arctis Pro Wireless. SteelSeries is a well-respected brand and
has been around for many years producing the best gaming peripherals and the Arctis Pro
is definitely one of their best creations yet. The Arctis Pro contains dual-wireless technology
that provides 2.4G lossless audio for gaming and also comes with Bluetooth connectivity
so you can use the headset with your mobile or other devices. The speakers are premium high resolution and
provide some of the highest quality sound we’ve heard through a gaming headset. Not only does the headset sound impeccable
but you’ll also get 20 hours of battery life, which is amazing when seeing what quality
sound the headset can deliver. Wireless headsets are often inconvenient because
of charging time required between using, however with the Steelseries Arctis Pro you’ll get
2 sets of batteries, so while you game with one set, the other can be charging. The design and construction of the headset
is sleek and modern, it’s made from polished steel and aluminum alloy, this gives you a
really comfortable fit that molds to your head shape and also provides you great durability
so the headset will last you for years to come. The microphone on the headset provides studio-quality
voice clarity and allows you to easily communicate with your teammates in a tough game of counter
strike or league of legends, whilst also giving you background noise cancellation to tune
out any cars driving by on the street or your parents talking outside your room. With the powerful neodymium magnets, you’ll
get realistic and stunning audio that immerses you into the game. These magnets have a huge frequency range
from 10 to 40000 hertz. The clarity you receive from this headset
can make some games too realistic, try running through Escape from Tarkov with this headset
on and you’ll be jumping out of your seat. Alongside the headset you’ll receive a ChatMix
dial, this allows you to adjust audio coming in and going out, so you can make sure the
sound from your teammates isn’t tuned out by loud in-game sounds. Ok so you might be thinking, alright Andrew
all of this sounds great and the headset sounds amazing now what are the downsides? Well whilst we had no issues with setting
up the headset or using it, some people have said that the SteelSeries software that allows
you to customize the headset is unable to pair with the device. Again this wasn’t experienced by us, however
several complaints have been filed about this and it’s most likely down to faulty headsets
which SteelSeries will happily fix or replace with their warranty. So overall for the Arctis Pro what would we
rate it? Well, this is our top gaming headset in our
video and we’d give this a 5/5 stars. Next up at number 2, we have the Logitech
G Pro X. Compared with our previous pick, the Logitech
G Pro X is significantly cheaper and won’t make such a dent in your bank account, although
I wouldn’t call it a budget option. The headset to us is amazing because of the
premium build quality that just makes it so comfortable to wear. If you’re a serious gamer and pull crazy
sessions, then wearing this headset for 12 hours straight is not going to give you a
headache or cause any discomfort that you may experience with other headsets. The construction is made from durable steel
and aluminum which is standard for most high quality headsets, but the soft memory foam
earpads will shape to your ear and give you amazing comfort. With the earpads, you can switch out the noise-canceling
leatherette for breathable velour which is much more comfortable. Now when it comes to audio quality, for a
wired headset it’s great. It won’t take the number 1 spot, but it’s
definitely up there. It has PRO-G 50mm drivers, these give you
that clear and precise sound and make in-game audio easily distinguishable, as Logitech
G Pro is designed for pros at gaming tournaments, you can download custom EQ profiles that are
specifically tuned for various games, allowing you to hear footsteps much easier in your
favorite shooters. Alongside the headset you’ll get a premium
USB external sound card, this helps give you even better crystal clear in-game audio and
also improves the quality of voice chat, so you won’t be mishearing important instructions
from your friends. So now to some downsides, multiple people
have said that the headsets have arrived with broken microphones and required a return to
get a new one to fix. This can be a little frustrating, however,
it’s an issue that only affects a very small amount of people. So overall for the Logitech G Pro X, we’d
rate this 4.3 stars out of 5. The headset is great for esports professionals
and we like that it’s used by pro gamers like Myth. Up next at number 3 we have the HyperX Cloud
Alpha S. Coming to one of the newer headsets in our
video, the Cloud Alpha S was released in late 2019. This headset is tuned by HyperX to give gamers
what they want. It provides crystal clear and amazing in-game
audio and is made to make sure that gaming with this headset will give you an edge over
other gamers. With the Digital signal processing card, you
get amplified audio that gives you an even more immersive experience when playing some
of your favorite games. Now for a feature, we haven’t seen yet on
gaming headsets, a bass adjustment slider. Gamers and pretty much everyone I know loves
being able to get a heavy bassy sound. It can make music sound much better and make
gaming feel much more immersive. With this headset, you get 3 options on the
earcups of the headset. You can move the sliders to either increase
or decrease the bass depending on what you prefer. I tend to have them fully open allowing maximum
bass, but some people might hate that, so you can slide it down. Inside the headset you get dual-chamber drivers,
this allows you to separate the mids from the highs, and gives the ability for them
to be tuned separately, this gives you a greater distinction and allows for less distortion
overall. On the little audio balancer, you can adjust
the mix of game and chat audio levels. This saves you time since you can simply click
either game or voice up or down, saving you time from rummaging through the game options
trying to figure out how to change the audio levels. Something I’ll quickly go over is the comfort,
although I shouldn’t have to as personally every HyperX headset is supremely comfortable,
but anyway the headset comes with extra breathable earcups and has cushions that are nearly 8
times more breathable than previous models. You can also use the interchangeable ear cushions
if you prefer more comfort or noise cancellation. As you’d expect with HyperX you also get
a durable frame that should last you for years. Something to note though, is the extendibility
of the headset is pretty limited, for those with a bigger than normal head, be wary that
the headset might not extend all the way. Overall, we’d have to say this headset is
pretty in line with our second pick and give it 4 stars out of 5. Now as we move down to number 4 we have the
Razer Nari Ultimate. Weighing in at 431 grams and built with the
dimensions of 18.5 x 21.9 x 10 cm, Razer’s best gaming headset is certainly good, however
we don’t rank it as highly as our other 3 picks so far. The Nari Ultimate is a wireless headset and
provides 2.4 GHz of wireless audio giving you immersive gaming-grade audio. The quality is good, however putting on this
headset and listening for the first time won’t blow you away. Something we really like about the Nari Ultimate
is the cooling gel-infused cushions that help keep your ears and head cool while wearing. Ever had an intense game and have sweaty ears
after? Yeah, it’s not a nice feeling, but this
headset will keep your ears cool and skills on point. Surround sound is something that Razer has
done well with in our opinion. The THX spatial audio is great and provides
next-gen surround sound giving you ears all around you and helping you hear those sneaky
enemy footsteps approaching from behind. The design again is something that Razer does
relatively well. The adjustable headband fits most and is comfortable. You won’t get any headaches or earaches
with this headset. Alongside this, visually the headset is very
appealing, you get a great looking headset with Razer’s cool looking logo lighting
up on each earcup. Compatibility wise the Razer Nari Ultimate
works with PC, PS4, Switch, and mobile devices, however, you’ll have to buy a separate version
to get it working with the Xbox One which is a little annoying. The microphone is good, however, we found
that background noise can sometimes be heard, so some better background noise cancellation
would be great if Razer were to make another headset. Overall I’d give this a 3.5 stars, it’s
a good all-around headset, some would call it overpriced for what it is, but there are
some diehard Razer fans that love their headsets so we thought we’d include it. And for our final pick at number 5 we have
the Astro A50 Wireless. Astro has been around for years and their
headsets have always been good. Today we’ll be going over the 2019 version
of the A50 as there have been various iterations to the headset. Starting off the headset has a weight of 1.49
pounds and dimensions of 7.3 x 3.5 x 7.2 inches. Our favorite thing about the A50 wireless
is the customizability of the headset. You can easily modify both the earcups and
the headband to improve whatever you desire. If you’re looking for more noise isolation
then you can attach respective earpads, if you want more comfort then you can add a different
headband. The choice is yours and that’s something
we really like. The headset comes with Astro Audio V2, which
provides very high-quality sound that helps deliver all in-game audio perfectly, as well
as help you hear communication from teammates clearly. Alongside this it has Dolby Audio which delivers
the cinematic and high-resolution sound, giving you that really immersive gaming experience. Something not so great about the headset is
it’s slightly low 15-hour battery life. I mean, it’s good, but it’s not close
to our other top wireless picks. Like most of the other headsets you can easily
voice and game balance, so you can increase the volume of your teammates if you struggle
hearing them, or increase ingame sound at the click of a button. The free software that comes with the headset
the ASTRO command center, gives you complete control over your entire audio experience. The software is available on Windows 10, Mac
and Xbox 1. Overall I have to say this headset is amazing,
I’d probably have given it the number 4 pick, but I know that the Razer lovers out
there would have hated me for it. So although this is our last pick I’d give
this headset a 4 star rating. It does everything well and I really like
how easy it is to modify. So that sums up the top gaming headsets. We hope you enjoyed. If you did please leave a like on the video
