The gaming industry is leading us through a tech revolution. Gaming products are constantly evolving every day, and more devices are transforming into wireless. The rise of the gaming industry also increased the demand for better gaming equipment. And so, the developments continued. They created small improvements that eventually brought forth Bluetooth controllers. But like most add-on gadgets, headsets did not escape the eyes of electronics developers. It only took a few years to lead to real innovation — the wireless gaming headset.
We recently published our picks for the 10 Best 4K TV For Gaming list. If you’ve seen that post, I slightly touched upon how big the gaming industry has grown. I mentioned that the gaming market is already worth $159 billion, but I never went into the specifics — like how 28 percent (that’s $45.2 billion) of the gaming market is occupied by consoles (PlayStation, Xbox, etc). It’s much more than PC’s market share in 2020, and according to the reports, it’s still set to grow even more due to many factors, such as the upcoming release of the PlayStation 5.

You might argue that performance-wise, these wireless gaming headsets for console might be inferior to the good-old wired ones. However, the products that we will be discussing further down are certain to perform just as well or even outperform their wired competitors. Our team handpicked these items from a long list and kept only the best wireless gaming headsets.
1. Sony PlayStation 4 Gold Wireless Gaming Headset – Black
If you’re a PlayStation fan, then this Sony PlayStation 4 Gold Wireless Headset is a must-have. Many users of the older PS Gold headset would enjoy this upgrade. It’s way lighter than the original and it also has a far more comfortable design. One con is probably that the battery only lasts around up to six hours, but it provides an option to plug it into the controller when the battery is low. You can also get this product from Best Buy.
2. Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Wireless Surround Sound Gaming Headset
The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 is one of the most-recently released wireless gaming headsets specifically made for the Xbox. Its appearance is designed to match the modern and current trends, which looks cool. But probably, the best feature of this product is its sound and microphone. The Turtle Beach brand has built its reputation through the high-sensitivity mic that can be muted as needed. It gives you an advantage in your games as you can mute yourself whenever you want so you can focus on the game.
3. SteelSeries Arctis Pro Gaming Headset
This product is probably one of the top picks in this list simply because of its compatibility with multiple platforms. This SteelSeries Arctis Pro Gaming Headset was developed by SteelSeries to enable users to be able to use any Bluetooth-powered devices. With it, you don’t need to buy a different headset as you switch platforms. It supports seamless sound transfer and lets you easily communicate with your team and win more games.
4. HyperX Cloud Flight Wireless Stereo Gaming Headset
If you use Discord or TeamSpeak as your communication platform with your team, then this HyperX Cloud Flight Wireless Stereo Gaming Headset may be the right choice for you. This wireless gaming headset was praised by both platforms for having “outstanding sound.” It has a very comfortable and slick design, and the most amazing value proposition for this product might be its support for non-stop gaming. It allows usage of up to 30 hours. That means that you can play nonstop without worrying about batteries too much.
5. Sony Playstation Platinum Wireless Headset 7.1 Surround Sound PS4
If you’re planning to upgrade your PS4 sound experience, it might be time to go platinum. The PS4 Platinum Wireless Headset provides a very premium sound by providing very detailed sound. One of the key features of this product is its dual mics—which allows noise cancellation and heightened accuracy in capturing your voice. You can easily call shots with your team and have a seamless communication advantage against your opponents.
6. SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 Edition Gaming Headset
If you’re very fond of first-person shooter games, then you’ve found the one. You can easily drench yourself in FPS with this Steel Series Arctis 7 Wireless Gaming Headset. It gives off an ultra-low latency performance which means that there is no lag when delivering sound. It also has a ClearCast mic that offers sound quality that’s comparable to studio mics. With this, you can even play long as it has 24-hour battery life.
7. Razer Nari Wireless 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
I’m a fan of Razer. My gaming setup consists of Razer products. So, my opinion on this one might sound biased, but believe me, it is not. The Razer Nari has been the go-to gaming headset of many gaming streamers and YouTubers because of its comfortable design, great feel, and amazing performance. Specs-wise, it won’t lose to any other product on this list.
8. Astro Gaming A20 Wireless Headset
The A20 Wireless Headset is the successor of Astro Gaming’s A10 wired headset. It has an adjustable headband, so it can easily fit gamers of all ages. It’s an upgrade from the A10’s fixed design. But while the A10 is very durable, the A20 is a little bit inferior to the A10 in this regard. However, in its defense, most wireless headsets are naturally less durable than their wired counterparts. Another interesting upgrade is mic performance. The developers clearly understood that the A10 needed to step up its microphone performance so they did that in the A20.
9. Sennheiser GSP 370 Wireless Gaming Headset
Sennheiser has been known to make great hardware, and this Sennheiser GSP 370 Wireless Gaming Headset is another one of their cool creations. Compared to the previous model, the GSP 670, which is bulkier, the GSP 370 has a more slim design. It fits a lot better than the previous model and has a leather body that beautifully traps the bass giving a nice sound experience when gaming. It’s also fits nicely if you have glasses—if that’s one of your major considerations. It’s not powered by Bluetooth, so you need to connect it through a USB wireless connector.
10. JBL Quantum 800 Wireless Gaming Headset
JBL has always been one of the leading sound and audio product developers. This is why it’s very interesting when it was announced that they will be releasing their line of wireless gaming headsets starting with the JBL Quantum 800 Wireless Gaming Headset. The RGB lighting works pretty amazingly on this headset, and it has a very clean look in general. One unique feature is that you can mute the microphone easily simply by putting it up and unmute it by doing the reverse.
