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

There are three things I like to keep in mind when it comes to picking a best gaming headset: comfort, audio quality and microphone clarity. If a gaming headset is missing even one of these ingredients, then you should probably look elsewhere, as it's no good having a great-sounding headset that pinches your skull after 30 minutes of use, or one you can't use online…

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…

Feature: Crystal clear?

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…

To that end, this is a slightly more rounded…

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…

Feature: Three is the magic number

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…

Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2018: Best gaming headset deals

Is that the sound of the Cyber Monday deals gong ringing? Why, yes is it, and with it the beep of a reversing truck full of even more gaming headset deals to replace the ones we had over Black Friday. There are some notable movers and shakers on today's best Cyber Monday gaming headset deals sheet, such as newly refreshed prices for lots of Steelseries…

Get the Steelseries Arctis 7 (our best gaming headset champion) at its lowest ever price this Black Friday

I know I bang on about the Steelseries Arctis 7 a lot, but it is truly the best gaming headset I've ever had - and now it's going for as little as £90 over at Currys as part of this year's Black Friday bonanza. That's the lowest price it's ever been in the UK (lower, even, than it's ever been on Amazon, too, according to…

Feature: Head in the clouds

HyperX Cloud Alpha review: Good looks and great sound (most of the time)

HyperX clearly have a thing about clouds - no, not that mopey JRPG chap, the real, white fluffy things you find in the sky. I had a good time with their wireless Cloud Flight headset earlier in the year, for instance, but since then the number of Clouds in their audio line-up seems to have grown exponentially. Today, I've got the Cloud Alpha, which is…

1More Spearhead VRX review: Is Waves’ 3D audio tech better than 7.1 surround sound headsets?

1More might not be the first name you think of when it comes to gaming headsets, but having launched their first pair of gaming headphones late last year in the form of the Spearhead VR, they're now following it up with an even higher-end sibling, the Spearhead VRX - because everything sounds better with an X on the end. In this case, though, the X…

Feature: One cool customer

HP Omen’s ear-cooling Mindframe headset is actually sort of brilliant

The HP Omen Mindframe headset is quite possibly the most bonkers piece of audio equipment I've ever seen. It's called MINDFRAME for a start, which is both brilliant and ridiculous in equal measure, but what really sets it apart from other headsets is pretty damn cool - as in literally cool thanks to its thermoelectric ear-cooling earcups. I'll admit I was a bit skeptical when…

Turtle Beach double down on PC gaming headsets with new Atlas series

I've reviewed a couple of Turtle Beach headsets here in the past, such as the jumbo Elite Pro and altogether tiddlier Recon 150, but you know as well as I that Turtle Beach as a company have always favoured console-orientated headsets rather than good old PC ones - case in point: the Stealth 300 which only comes with a combined headphone and microphone jack connection…

Feature: The least stealthy headset of all time

Turtle Beach Stealth 300 review: Great sound, awkward setup

The new Turtle Beach Stealth 300 is a bit of a weird one. It's a wired headset that comes with a 3.5mm audio connection, but due to its built-in bass amplifier, it also needs to be charged via USB every 40 hours or so - something that, normally, you only need to do if it's wireless. Straight off the bat, then, the Stealth 300 is…

Amazon Prime Day 2018: Best deals on PC games and hardware

This year's Amazon Prime Day is almost at an end. At midnight tonight, Amazon's big day o' deals will be over for another year (or, you know, until Black Friday in November), so if you had a look at the deals yesterday and thought, 'Hmm... I could do with a new SSD or graphics card', then you've still got time to pick one up. I know Amazon is…
