* Driver: 40mm neodymium

The SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless are outstanding gaming headphones. They combine the connectivity options of the SteelSeries Arctis 7 Wireless 2017 and the SteelSeries Arctis Pro GameDAC by including a wireless transmitter that doubles as a battery charging station, and even throw Bluetooth in there for good measure. This results in highly versatile wireless gaming headphones that can mix audio from a console and a mobile device at the same time. They’re also comfortable and well-designed. They have a versatile sound thanks to their customization features found directly on their wireless transmitter and have a superb battery system as well as a great microphone. On the downside, like many gaming headphones, they’re rather bulky and have poor isolation performance. However, they’re otherwise impressive gaming headphones.

++Powerful but clear sound
++Bombproof build quality
Bearing the fruits of HyperX Cloud’s long legacy of excellence, the Cloud Alpha presents excellent sound and build quality with the essential features done well, and no feature-flab inflating the price. The stereo soundscape in this closed-back design is punchier in the low end than we’d usually go for, but the extra bass doesn’t interfere with overall clarity—and frankly, in games and music environments, it sounds great. Each 50mm driver’s dual chamber design is intended to give low, medium, and high frequencies space to resonate without interfering with each other, and you do get a sense of that while listening to them.

— Head tracking’s audio impact varies depending on game
The HyperX Cloud Orbit S is an expensive, premium pair of cans and the best gaming headset for splurging. It gives you a discernible gaming advantage, thanks to its customizable 3D mode with head tracking. When you’re gaming with head tracking, the location of enemies is apparent and the auditory environment moves with you. You can also use head tracking as game controls, freeing up your hands for more action. (For another head tracking option with premium features, check out the similarly priced JBL Quantum One).

The Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless SE is one of the rare headsets that looks as good as it sounds. It offers premium quality audio that enters audiophile territory and looks pretty and shiny instead of clunky and heavy. The SE version of the Virtuoso RGB boasts gunmetal-colored aluminum stamped with a touch RGB via the Corsair logo. Overall, it looks as expensive as it is.

If you do a lot of chatting on your headset, be with your Apex teammates, work colleagues or Mom, the Corsair Void RGB Elite USB will make sure you sound just like you to whoever’s listening. For this price, we were pleased at the microphone’s quality, which can handily fold up when you need to take a sip of water or sneeze. It’s also Discord-certified and showed better  low-end response than rivals.It’s not quite as warm as what you can get with the best gaming microphones or any USB mic, but it’s close.
