Sennheiser GSP 670 review: A wireless gaming headset that’s scared of letting its hair down

When a £300 / $350 gaming headset like the Sennheiser GSP 670 arrives on my desk, I expect breathtaking audio that blasts the waxy cobwebs clean out of my ear canal. I want, nay, demand perfection at this end of the audio spectrum, mostly so I can help feel justified in myself for spending such an obscene amount of money on a pair of headphones.…

Razer Kraken X review: So close, yet so far

The Razer Kraken X is the third £50 / $50 gaming headset I've tried in almost as many weeks, and by jolly is it a hard one to judge. Compared to the similarly priced Steelseries Arctis 1, it has a much clearer, more detailed sound when playing games, but even its ultralight, 250g frame can't beat the supreme weightlessness of its Arctis rival. It is,…

Logitech G432 review: A brilliant budget gaming headset

Over the last week or so, I've developed a love-hate relationship with the Logitech G432. I love it because it's by far and away a much better gaming headset than the similarly priced Steelseries Arctis 1, and I'd probably even go as far as saying it's arguably the [block id="604477" title="Best gaming headset"] I've tested around the £50 / $50 price mark. Its clear, natural…

Steelseries Arctis 1 review: So, so comfy

Until Logitech's G Pro X gaming headset came along last month, Steelseries' Arctis 7 had been sitting unchallenged at the top of my [block id="604477" title="Best gaming headset"] list for absolutely yonks. I still have a big soft spot for the Arctis 7 - it's still the best wireless headset you can buy right now, after all, as well as one of the most comfortable…

HP Omen’s ear-cooling gaming headset returns as the even more brilliantly named Mindframe Prime

By far one of the best hardware announcements to come out of last year's Gamescom was HP's ear-cooling Omen Mindframe headset. The name was just pure, unbridled brilliance, and its chilly, sweat-blasting thermoelectric ear cups were novel and worked surprisingly well in practice, even if its suspension-style headband didn't quite hold up comfort-wise once I got one in for review. Now, the Mindframe is back…

Best gaming headset 2019: Our top wired and wireless headsets for PC

It's sometimes easy to forget about your PC's audio setup when it comes to building a new rig, but having one of today's best gaming headsets plugged into your system can make just as big a difference to your overall gaming experience as a shiny new graphics card or a super fast SSD. The problem, of course, is finding a gaming headset that's both comfortable…

Logitech G Pro X review: Make way for our new best gaming headset

It had to happen eventually. After an incredible 18 month stint at the top of our best gaming headset list, the Steelseries Arctis 7 must now give up its throne to the brand-new Logitech G Pro X headset. What a thing this is. Not only is this a great-sounding gaming headset, but it's also incredibly comfortable and has arguably the best quality microphone I've ever…

Turtle Beach Elite Atlas review: The pro headset that drops the ball

Turtle Beach struck [block id="604477" title="Best gaming headset"] gold with their mid-range Atlas Three, and now it's the turn of their top-end PC headset, the Elite Atlas - and you know it's the big expensive one because it says things like 'pro performance' and 'designed with leading esports teams' on the front of the box. Indeed, at a princely £85 / $100, the Elite Atlas…

Roccat Renga Boost review: A great open-backed headset

If you asked me to guess the weight of Roccat's new Renga Boost gaming headset, I would swear blind that it's never going to beat the 210g Roccat Noz gaming headset, because, well, just look at the thing. Its 50mm audio drivers are way bigger and chunkier than the Noz's skinny little ear muffs, and even the fold-down microphone has a thicker, more substantial boom…

Roccat Noz review: An ultralight gaming headset that doesn’t carry enough weight

At just 210g, the Roccat Noz is one of the lightest gaming headsets I've worn for quite some time. It's also one of Roccat's least flashy gaming headsets as well, as you won't find a single LED on this £60 / $70 headset, or even their usual giant lion logo draped around the side of the ear cup. Instead, you just get a plain, black…

Razer’s new budget Essential series are all still kinda expensive

Razer have announced a new budget-conscious series of 'Essential' peripherals today in the hope of bringing their popular Basilisk, Kraken and Blackwidow ranges of gaming mice, keyboards and headsets to even more people enamoured with mythological creature names than ever before - although judging by their actual prices, you'd be forgiven for thinking they're just as expensive as everything else.

Logitech’s wireless G935 headlines new series of gaming headsets

Logitech have announced four new gaming headsets this morning, starting with their latest flagship headset, the wireless G935. An updated version of their outgoing top-end headset, the G933, the G935 is the first Logitech headset to come with their proprietary Pro-G 50mm audio drivers, which Logitech hope will deliver rich bass and 'highly cinematic audio'. It will also be available as a wired version in…

LucidSound LS25 review: Great peripheral sound that falls flat up close

Say what you will about red and black being a PC gaming cliche. I kind of love it. From gaming headsets like the HyperX Cloud Alpha to laptops like the Alienware m15, I'm of the firm opinion that more bits of gaming hardware should be swaddled in the best colour known to man (red, not black, you understand). LucidSound's LS25 headset is another such headset…

HyperX Cloud Mix review: An all-in-one Bluetooth and wired headset

If you've ever wished you could wear your gaming headset out and about without looking like a walking, talking RGB Christmas tree, then you might want to turn your attention to the HyperX Cloud Mix. Indoors, it connects to your PC via its two-pronged 3.5mm adapter; outdoors, its Bluetooth 4.2 support means you can also listen to stuff and take calls on your phone or…

CES 2019: Corsair are bringing their new Slipstream tech to the masses with the $50 Harpoon RGB Wireless mouse

Not content with rewriteing the rulebook on RGB lighting with their new Capellix tech at this year's CES, rainbow gaming specialists Corsair also announced a new wireless technology today that will form the foundation of all of their wireless gaming peripherals going forward. Dubbed Slipstream, it's twice as fast as their previous generation of wireless tech, has a massive range of up to 65ft, supports…

Nuraphone review: Headphones that make tailor-made audio for your own ears

Did you know that the way our ears interpret sound is as unique and personal to you as your own speaking voice? I certainly didn't until earlier this week, but it's probably the reason why no one can ever agree on what the [block id="604477" title="Best gaming headset"] is, or why one pair of headphones might sound great for one person but all kinds of…

Turtle Beach Atlas Three review: A great mid-range gaming headset

Take one look at Turtle Beach's Atlas Three and Stealth 300 headsets and you'd probably swear blind they were exactly the same thing. Apart from the Stealth 300's giveaway blue highlights, both headsets share the same design, the same 3.5mm audio connection and flip-to-mute microphone, and both have the rather baffling need to be charged every 40-odd hours due to their built-in bass amplifier gubbins…

HP Omen Mindframe review: The ear-cooling gaming headset that left me cold

The thing I love most about the HP Omen Mindframe is its name. Say it with me. MINDFRAME. It's so ridiculous it's actually come full circle into pure, unbridled brilliance, and I doubt there will be another headset in the history of gaming headsets that even comes close to matching its mad, bonkers moniker. The HP Omen Mindframe's name isn't the only thing that sets…
