Headsets

When it comes to gaming headsets there are plenty to choose from. Here are some of the best headphones we've tried out.

Premium comfort, premium finish, good audio. If you are gaming on a budget, this is the perfect headset for you.

WHAT HEADPHONES? Lightweight materials combined with Alacantra padding make you forget you are wearing anything

The only slight issue is the portability of the headset (due to the lack of a foldable design), but the comfort and price of the headset make up for it.

Sennheiser GSP 370

EASY ADJUSTMENT: The infinity volume wheel allows for simple audio alteration

A high-quality headset without the bulk of some of its rivals. If you want to shed the weight of a headset without sacrificing quality, this is the one for you.

Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero

This headset is superb - the design is simple and while a big headset it does fold for added portability.

ULTIMATE IMMERSION: the 3D audio immersion system really drops you into the game

At £129.99 they're not cheap, but if you like joining up with a squad to dominate Fortnite, take down opponents on Call of Duty, or just want to truly dive into the world of your favourite RPG then the Elite Atlas Aero is the one for you.
