Good Cheap Gaming Headsets - HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset

HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset

HyperX Cloud Gaming Headset

When it comes to expertly performing gaming headphones, HyperX knows their stuff. Now, while they have the chops to hold up in a spec contest, what really makes this set shine is comfort and quality. That is to say, high performance sound, great microphone quality, and reliability. Not to mention the fact that this white on black color option is super clean looking. The mic detaches if you want to use them just for sound, and they do an admirable job at cancelling out surrounding noise. Using a standard 3.5mm plug, they’ll get along with any of your devices (PC, PS4, Mac, XBox One w/ adapter) and the packaging is pretty nice on top of all that. Lots of comparable sets go for well over $250 but not this awesome set. Priced at just under $80, this set won’t set you back too far, and they’ll stick with you for years. A real solid investment into your Man Cave!

Sentey Gaming Headset

If you’d like your headset to be a little easier on your bank account, Sentey has a great set of gaming headphones that may do the trick. This set uses USB to plug in and it gets along nicely with PCs and most Macs, although I wouldn’t recommend it for consoles. These are really comfortable and the sounds quality is good. The range is on the low end, meaning you’ll get those beefy bass sounds, and a few less higher, quieter tinny noises. A nice feature this set provides is a cool vibration effect with the lowest growls. For those who enjoy it, the effect can be awesome. The real draw of these headphones however, is the price. Going for under $40, you’d be really hard pressed to find a cheaper pair of comparable quality.
