Best value Headset for PS4: The cheap, the popular and the superb

Best value Headset for PS4: It’s quite hard to find the best value Headset for PS4 since there are several very good options. Therefore, we chose three different variations of a best value headset.

The cheap ist for those who seek a fine headset that is also cheap compared to others. The next is also a finde headset but is also popular. Last but not least, is the superb headset that is extremely satisfying but also comes with a higher price.

The cheap: Logitech G430 7.1

Logitech G430 7.1

The Logitech G430 7.1 headset is an extremely popular choice among gamers. It has over 5000 customer reviews on Amazon and almost 800 answered questions. Of course, the durability is limited in comparison to a headphone that costs 300. All in all, it’s a solid choice when you need a microphone and when you are fine with a cable.

Advantages

  • Very high quality audio; surprisingly good.
  • Durable (3 years)
  • Above average mic for a headset
  • 7.1 surround sound is almost alien like (it’s so accurate and sensitive)
  • Ear cushions are incredibly comfortable for long hour gaming sessions.
  • The mic is incredibly decent for a 40 dollar headset. It gives a very crisp sound and 90% of the time with no background noise (has automatic noise cancellation).
  • The cord is long (about 6 feet) and is great for any setup whether you are looking for a home theatre for just yourself, or if you are looking for a really solid gaming experience.
  • USB attachment plays your own voice back at you to counter act the noise cancellation (AUX jack does not)
  • Mic is bendable

Disadvantage

  • The ear pads get dirty after 3 months but it can easily be hand washed.
  • After 3 years the fabric on the earpads started to crack and peel
  •  Ear pads are quite warm

The popular: HyperX Cloud Stinger

HyperX Cloud Stinger

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.

Advantages

  • Most of the parts are plastic, but it’s very well molded and looks great
  • Very comfortable to wear for hours on end. They give enough pressure so that you can hear well, but not so much that it squeezes my head and causes me to sweat
  • The speakers are surprisingly good. Certainly not audiophile headphones, but the speakers have a very wide range, and respond to both bass and treble very well
  • Mic quality is again rather good for the price

Disadvantages

  • 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.

The superb: SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless Gaming Headset

SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless

The first top headset is the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless. In my opinion, it is the best looking headset of all 5.

Advantages

  • 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.

  • Take calls when playing by connecting to your phone over Bluethooth

Disadvantages

  • 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
