Top 5 Gaming Headsets of 2017

1. Beyerdynamic MMX 300

“Compact, stylish and just good”

The design of the beyerdynamic MMX 300 is simple. Just a cord with a 3.5mm plug, a nice working gaming microphone, nice sitting earphones and excellent sound: that’s what the MMX 300 has to offer. Volume control and mute had made it completely complete, but the MMX 300 must unfortunately lack. Nevertheless, the Beyerdynamic MMX 300 is one of our favorite headsets in this test. Compact, stylish and just good.

2. Razer ManO’War

“Soft and comfortable”

With 378 grams, the Razer ManO’War is on the heavy side. That weight is mainly in the enormous ear pegs. The cushions are soft and seem comfortable. The bracket that connects both shells is even more resistant. The whole makes a fragile impression. Sad, because the ManO’War has nice buttons and good functionality. Also, the included software is nice, although it’s a bit weird being required to log in to change settings. The sound of the ManO’War is pretty neutral, even though it’s a bit on the side. There are headsets that cost as much, but sound better.

3. Hyper X Cloud 2

“The housing is robust and the set looks excellent”

Kingston Cloud II has many strong sides. The housing is robust and the set looks excellent  with its red accents. The wearing comfort is reasonable, despite the weight and the relatively small ear paws. However, the same earwalls also cause the sound to penetrate the headset. It’s also nice that the Cloud II can be connected to a PlayStation 4 in two ways.  If you have a cord of 3.10 meters enough, the Cloud II is a good option. 

4. Astro A50 Wireless

“Very light and is well-placed on your head, Best wireless gaming headset”

This is one of the best Gaming Headsets you can buy, it’s wireless, handsome, handy for both the gaming microphone, headset connectivity, and headset usage, and it’s possible to connect to all consoles and your PC. An ideal wireless headset for anyone who loves gaming and wants to expand his setup with a new Gaming Headset.

In addition to the practical functions of the wireless headset, this is also very light and is well-placed on your head. It will spend 15 hours on a full battery so that’s enough to continue your game session.

 

5. SteelSeries Siberia 840

” A fantastic all-round wireless gaming headset that’s hugely comfortable”

The Siberia 800 is a headset that targets SteelSeries on a broad target audience. The set is suitable for both consoles and the PC and it works wireless. This has the disadvantage that a soft noise is always heard in the ear pegs. In addition, the sound of the Siberia 800 is nice, but not as good as the wired headsets from the test. It’s nice that SteelSeries delivers two copies of a battery, which also has good capacity. You never have to worry about an empty battery. Furthermore, the  microphone has good sound. The Siberia 800 is very enjoyable and we are very conversant with the design of the whole, both from the headset itself and from the base station. The functionality of the station is basic, but the operation is therefore very convenient.
