Best gaming headsets 2020: Reviews and buying advice

The next great peripherals war is being waged over your ears. After every company on the planet put out a gaming mouse and then a mechanical keyboard, they turned their attention to headsets. So many headsets.

We know you don’t want to scroll through every single headset review when all you want is a simple answer: “What’s the best gaming headset I can buy with my hard-earned dollars?” This page holds the answers you seek, no matter what your budget is.

We’ll keep updating our recommendations as we look at new products and find stronger contenders. 

Updated 6/6/20 to include our review of Razer’s Kraken X budget headset, a solid no-frills option at $50. See the bottom of this article for links to all of our headset reviews.

Best all-around gaming headset

HyperX outdid itself with HyperX Cloud Alpha, or “HyperX Cloud III,” as I’ve termed it in my head. 

The core design hasn’t changed much, meaning the Alpha brings the same combination of durability and comfort that made me fall in love with its Cloud predecessor. There are some quality-of-life upgrades though, like removable cabling and more accessible volume and mute controls.

It sounds great, too. HyperX chalks it up to the Alpha’s dual-chamber technology, which separates bass frequencies from the mids and highs. That could be the case, or it could be a gimmick—I’ve discussed it at greater length in our review. Either way, the upshot is that the Cloud Alpha sounds as good or better than plenty of its more expensive competition, and with slightly more bass kick this time around. (Read our full review of the HyperX Cloud Alpha.)

A close contender is the new Logitech G Pro X. At $130, it can’t compete with the Cloud Alpha on price, but it’s Logitech’s best headset yet, and features a beautiful aesthetic, amazing sound quality that far exceeds it price, and a fantastic microphone, making it a worthy choice.(Read our full review of the Logitech G Pro X.)
