We buy our own products and put them under the same testing methodology so that you can easily compare them. Unlike most websites, we do not get our products directly from the manufacturers, which means our units aren’t handpicked and actually represent what you would buy yourself. We spend a lot of time comparing the products side-by-side to validate our results and we keep them until they are discontinued so we can continually go back and make sure our reviews are always accurate.
With the rising popularity of multiplayer games like Fortnite, Overwatch or the most recent Call of Duty, having a good gaming headset can sometimes make the difference between a clutch, well-coordinated victory and crushing defeat. Typical wired headphones may give you good enough audio for gaming but may lack a compatible microphone and chat support. If you’re a PC gamer, you won’t necessarily need wireless technology as much as on consoles, but you’ll still need a comfortable headset for long gaming hours and great audio reproduction to hear everything around you. We’ve tested 283 headphones so far and below are our top picks for the best PC gaming headsets to buy in 2018.
