First, we talk about the ASTRO A50 Headset, then about the SteelSeries Arctis Pro and last but not least about the Turtle Beach – Ear Force Elite 800.
1. ASTRO Gaming A50 Wireless Dolby Gaming Headset
The first headset of the three headsets is the ASTRO Gaming A50 Wireless Dolby Gaming Headset. It’s quite a contrary headset to the SteelSeries Arctic. With the SteelSeries Arctic the sound quality is amazing, the comfort might not for people with big ears or big heads. In contrast to that, the ASTRO A50 offers amazing comfort but the sound quality is not for audiophiles. So both headsets are quite contrary.
- Amazing comfort
- A jack of all trades headset
- Base stand has came a long ways and the new style is very nice
- Two ways to charge (magnetic base or by USB)
- Not for audiophiles. If you are an audiophile you will be unhappy with the sound, go back and buy your “stereo” headset.
- Regarding the software, the average user might not be able utilize it to its fullest
- Loud volume does indeed bleed out. However, they sell a kit to silence it.
2. SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless Gaming Headset
The first top headset is the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless. In my opinion, it is the best looking headset of all 5.
- The sound quality its amazing! If you have speakers with optical exit, you can put that on your adapter and have sound on your headphone and your speakers
- The distance on which they work are amazing as well. You can go all around the house without loosing connection and even the mic is great.
- Noise cancelling is very good. Others have to scream until you hear them, though.
- Chatmix ability lowers game and discord sound from transmitter without leaving game.
- Take calls when playing by connecting to your phone over Bluethooth
- The headset may not very comfy for people with big ears or big heads
- The joints between the cans and head piece seems weak due to it being made of plastic. Better don’t drop it
- Very expensive
3. Turtle Beach – Ear Force Elite 800
One of the most popular gaming headsets is the HyperX Cloud Stinger. It has over 2600 customer reviews and offers one of the best performance under 50.
- Realistic Surround Sound
- Noise Cancelling and seal around your ear
- Easy Setup
- Optical in and Out
- Nice and easy to use charging cradle
- Lots of sound options: Full and mostly realistic bass sound
- There is audible feedback when you press buttons to change settings on the head phones
- Bluetooth allows you to have the freedom of not having to connect to your controller
- They are larger and heavier than your might expect
- The USB and Optical Cables have to be connected in order for it to work. Probably not Turtle Beaches fault. Not sure why Playstation does not simply allow you to use any bluetooth headset with their system.
- On-ear volume adjuster could be could be of better quality. As you adjust the volume, it does not adjust evenly on both sides. Then again, the ear adjuster is mainly for a bit of fine-tuning on the fly. If possible, leave the ear slider wide open and adjust predominately on your device.
