What is the best wireless PC gaming headset?-We tell you here

Have you ever been listening to your tunes or playing a game, only to get up to get a refill to be pulled back down by your wired headsets?

Then you are looking for the best wireless PC gaming headsets and have come to the right place!

Craig’s Gaming Corner has taken a look at many wireless PC gaming headsets from the gaming companies and the top 5 are shown below.

We all want the same things from a wireless gaming headset:

  • Good battery life so we haven’t got to keep charging every few hours and can continue doing what we love- Gaming!
  • Wireless connection- no one wants to be moving around in their chair only to be disconnected
  • Audio Quality- Historically the wireless headsets have not been as good as their wired counterparts, the technology has come a long way and the wireless headsets available now offer great sound.
  • Price- We’re not all millionaires so we want a good headset for a fair price- that’s why all of our headsets are less than $200.

  1. Great article with a lot of good information.

    Personally, I’m a Turtle Beach guy though and though. I’ve been gaming for over a decade and have been using Turtle Beach for 99% of those 10 years. 

    A while back I was waiting for Turtle Beach to send me a new set and I picked up a cheap pair of Titan’s at a GameStop close by. Not gonna lie, for the $40 price tag for the Titan’s, I think they’re the best set under $50 or even $100. Or maybe I just got lucky and was in the store on the right day.

    Once you get all your affiliate links on here for all the different headsets, this could be a great money maker.

    Thanks for the article!

  2. Hi Craig. Thank you for very interesting article. I was just looking for new headset but its not easy to choose with so many options on market. But looking on your post Arctis 9 is what Im looking for. The most important is long battery life, but I also love the design and price is also quite reasonable. Looking forward to test it in practice.

    • Hi Cogito, thanks for your comment.

      Steel series are a solid brand and you cannot go wrong with Arctis 9. Don’t forget you can pick up an additional USB dongle to make it compatible across all devices. 

      Enjoy your gaming and let me know how they workout for you.

      Craig.

  3. This list of the best wireless PC headsets is neat. I certainly can’t imagine taking a break from PC gaming only to cause an accident because I forgot to take off the wired headset. So, it is good to have a PC headset that is wireless just to be safe.

    • Hi Michael,

      It has happened to the best of us- It has certainly happened to me a few times and i’ve even broken a wired headset by getting up and forgetting it is on my head.

      Keep an eye out as in the next week or so the list of the best wired headsets will be up aswell.

      Thanks for the comment.
