HyperX Cloud Stinger

View Reviews
  • Comfortable to wear

  • Well placed controls

  • Super affordable

  • Loses sound quality with high volume

The HyperX Cloud Stinger is our biggest recommendation if you’re on a budget. You can grab one for only $50 and has very high value. This headset has a very high comfort level, features a pretty good microphone, and can actually surprise you with good sound if you consider the price.

You can also throw in an extra $50 and get the wireless version. Our favorite review of the HyperX Cloud Stinger can be found on besttech.reviews at this link.

astro a40

View Reviews
  • Amazing sound quality

  • Comfortable for long sessions

  • Great for PC and Console gaming

  • A little pricey

The Astro A40 delivers amazing sound quality on both the speakers and the microphone, which makes this a very interesting choice for streamers or pro gamers. It offers a premium build quality and when paired with the MixAmp Pro can blow you away in terms of sound quality and features.

You can use the MixAmp Pro included software to really tune your sound to perfection. If you decide to go with this headset then we definitely recommend getting the MixAmp Pro package.

HyperX Cloud Alpha

View Reviews
  • Comfortable ear cups

  • Great sound quality

  • Very affordable

  • Only wired

One more HyperX Cloud headset that made it on our list. This one is $30 more expensive ($79.99 total) and doesn’t offer a wireless version, however the sound quality is a big step up compared to the Stinger.

The biggest con of this headset is that the microphone may pick up some white noise which may be very irritating for your friends and teammates.

Logitech G Pro X

View Reviews
  • Excellent sound quality

  • Durable design

  • Comfortable for longer sessions

  • Impressive microphone

  • Doesn't fit easily in your backpack

The Logitech G Pro X is advertised to have “tournament-grade performance”, and in some cases, they are completely right. Not only this this headset looks gorgeous, but it also features lots of fancy tech under the hood. One of those features is that is it equipped with a Blue microphone. This doesn’t mean that the microphone is actually blue, no. It means they collaborated with the company Blue microphone (famous for their Yeti microphones) in order to give extra-crisp voice quality.

Thanks to the Blue microphone, this headset makes it perfect to use when you stream, or when you want to make sure your teammates can actually hear you clearly when communicating while playing a game.
