Putting on the best wireless gaming headset makes you wonder why you didn’t cut the cord sooner. Freeing yourself from the tether of a cable is undeniably convenient and helps declutter your setup for an altogether tidier aesthetic. More importantly, many cordless cans now handily compete with their wired counterparts, meaning you’re sure to find a pair that perfectly suit your ears.

Switching from the wired confines of the best gaming headset and settling into the wireless lifestyle is easy, provided you don’t mind the added responsibility of keeping your headset charged. Thankfully, most models now come with USB Type-C charging ports, meaning it doesn’t take long to fill them up with enough juice for several hours of use.

These are the best wireless gaming headsets today:

The best wireless gaming headset is the EPOS H3PRO Hybird

1. EPOS H3PRO Hybrid

The best wireless gaming headset is the EPOS H3PRO Hybrid.

EPOS H3PRO Hybrid specs:

Drivers 40mm
Connectivity 2.4GHz / 3.5mm / Bluetooth / USB
Frequency Response 20Hz – 2okHz
Weight 308g
Battery Life Up to 30 hours
Available in Ghost White, Racing Green, Sebring Black


  • Exemplary sound quality
  • Very comfortable
  • Active noise-canceling


  • Finicky software
  • High price

Not many headsets have left such an immediately positive impression on us as the EPOS H3PRO Hybrid. They sound as good as they look: excellent. The amount of detail its 40mm dynamic drivers can pump outputs every other wireless headset to shame. Better still, its microphone is detachable, so you can stealthily rock your gaming cans on the go while you listen to music, podcasts, and more.

Putting the EPOS H3PRO Hybrid on is like wrapping your head in a comforting cloud, thanks to the plentiful padding across its headband and cushioning ear pads. It’s also one of the few headsets out there that support active noise-canceling. It’s more useful than you might expect, as it helps muffle potentially distracting real-world sounds, so you can better immerse yourself in your favorite games.

As you might expect, the EPOS H3PRO Hybrid isn’t cheap, but its price isn’t as lavish as many of its similarly specced competitors. The only negative thing we have to say about the headset is that its software suite can be a touch buggy, but you can opt not to use it.

The best budget wireless gaming headset is the Corsair HS65 Wireless

2. Corsair HS65 Wireless

The best budget wireless gaming headset is the Corsair HS65 Wireless.

Corsair HS65 Wireless specs:

Drivers 50mm (neodymium)
Connectivity 2.4GHz / Bluetooth
Frequency Response 20Hz – 20kHz
Weight 275g
Battery Life Up to 24 hours
Available in Carbon Black, Camo, Yellow, White


  • Drivers and microphone punch above their weight
  • Solid, lightweight, and stylish build
  • Relatively affordable and high value


  • Microphone can’t be detached
  • No wired connectivity

The Corsair HS65 Wireless offers terrific value for how much it costs, cutting the cord from its wired counterpart with minimal compromises. We’re yet to find a wireless headset that offers the same build quality, sound, and style offered by this cheap champion at its price point.

Featuring 50mm neodymium drivers, the HS65 Wireless offers a well-rounded sound signature that’s great for playing games, listening to music, or watching movies. Meanwhile, its microphone helps capture your comms with clarity that competes with more expensive rivals.

The main weakness of the Corsair HS65 Wireless comes down to its wired connectivity or lack thereof. Thankfully, with up to 24 hours of battery life, you shouldn’t need to reach for the charger often. Better still, you only need to juice it up for 15 minutes to get 6 hours of playback.

Best wireless gaming headsets: the Razer BlackShark V2 next to its box.

3. Razer BlackShark V2 Pro

The best wireless gaming headset for esports is the Razer BlackShark V2 Pro.

Razer BlackShark V2 Pro specs:

Drivers 50mm
Connectivity 2.4GHz / Bluetooth
Frequency response 28kHz
Weight 358g
Battery life Up to 70 hours
Available in  Black, White


  • Comfortable
  • Class-leading microphone
  • Fantastic battery life


  • No wired connections
  • A little expensive

Razer is, of course, one of the big names in the gaming hardware world. The BlackShark V2 follows in the footsteps of many previous models, design-wise, and based on looks alone you may think not much has changed. However, while the aesthetics aren’t that different (and why should they be? They look great), the latest Razer headset has grown a lot on the inside.

It comes with a detachable microphone, which can be conveniently swapped in or out as you, please. With a Bluetooth connection making it easy to switch between devices on the fly, it’s ideal for gaming, music, movies, and anything else you might want to use it for.

Unfortunately, there are no wired options available here. Of course, if you’re reading this article it’s fair to assume you want something that’s wireless anyway, but it’s always good to have the option, as many of us have instances where the wired option is essential.

Best wireless gaming headsets: Sony Inzone H9. Image shows someone holding it.

4. Sony Inzone H9

The best gaming headset from Sony is the Inzone H9.

Sony Inzone H9 specs:

Drivers 40mm (neodymium)
Connectivity 2.4Ghz / Bluetooth
Frequency response 5Hz – 20kHz
Weight 308g
Battery life 32 hours (no noise-canceling)
Available in White


  • Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz connectivity
  • Excellent battery life


  • No detachable microphone
  • Expensive

Sony is another of the big names in the headset world, and the Inzone H9 builds off decades of the manufacturer’s experience in headphones and earphones. Sony really knows what it’s doing, and this slick, PS5-esque headset is a classic example.

Sound configurations not to your liking? Fortunately, this headset comes with the Inzone Hub, which allows you to easily make adjustments until you get it exactly how you like it. This is much better than a lot of others, which have more convoluted options for customization, and infinitely better than any that have a one-size-fits-all approach.

Of course, no headset is without its flaws, and with the Inzone H9, those would be the higher price and the fact that it doesn’t have a detachable headset. Still, these are relatively minor issues and overall, there’s a lot to admire here.

The best high-end wireless gaming headset is the SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless

5. SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless

The best gaming headset with hot-swappable batteries is the SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless.

SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless:

Drivers 40mm (neodymium)
Connectivity 2.4 GHz / 3.5mm / Bluetooth
Frequency response 10Hz – 22kHz
Weight 337g
Battery life Up to 22 hours
Available in Black, White


  • Stellar stereo and spatial audio
  • Hot swappable batteries
  • Connections for days


  • Very expensive
  • Somewhat shallow earcups

If money’s no object when it comes to your next wireless gaming headset, look no further than the SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless. In addition to sounding phenomenal, these cans are stacked with features and conveniently connect to just about every device you’d want them to.

While they’re great by their own merit, the SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless is elevated above its peers thanks to the Wireless Base Station. This little box sits smartly atop your gaming desk and makes swapping between your PC and consoles as easy as the press of a button. Not only that, it holds and charges a spare battery pack, meaning you effectively never have to charge your headset as you’ll always have charge on hand.

This level of quality and robust feature set naturally demand a tall asking price, but it’s seriously worth it if you can afford it. With this in mind, it’s worth mentioning that the headset’s shallow earcups don’t suit every ear shape, as its drivers do protrude slightly.

The best RGB wireless gaming headset is the Roccat Syn Pro Air

6. Roccat Syn Pro Air

The best RGB wireless gaming headset is the Roccat Syn Pro Air.

Roccat Syn Pro Air Specs:

Drivers 50mm (neodymium)
Connectivity 2.4GHz
Frequency response 20Hz – 20kHz
Weight 312g
Battery life Up to 24 hours
Available in Black


  • Tasteful, bright, customizable RGB
  • Feels practically weightless
  • Crisp, clear, mids and treble


  • No Bluetooth or wired connectivity
  • Lacks meaty bass

Whereas most gaming headsets tend to omit RGB, wireless or otherwise, the Roccat Syn Pro Air handily bucks the trend. Don’t make the mistake of taking it for a gimmicky headset, as there’s plenty to love in addition to its lighting effects.

While the out-of-the-box sound signature is plenty good, the Roccat Syn Pro Air is well-suited for competitive FPS games thanks to the customization available in its software suite. Features like ‘Superhuman Hearing’ elevate the sound of gunshots and footsteps, helping you locate your enemies more easily.

You’ll want to make sure you always remember to charge the Roccat Syn Pro Air, mind, as you’re out of luck when it comes to wired connections. Don’t lose that dongle either, as it forgoes Bluetooth too.

8. Turtle Beach Stealth Pro

The best headset for first-person shooters is the Turtle Beach Stealth Pro.

Turtle Beach Stealth Pro specs:

Drivers 50mm Nanoclear w/neodymium magnets
Connectivity Dual Bluetooth 5.1 & 2.4GHz
Frequency response 10Hz-22KHz
Weight 400g
Battery life 15 hours
Available in Black


  • Incredible audio quality
  • Superhuman Hearing feature is a lifesaver in FPS games
  • Great long-use comfort
  • Multiple batteries are included for hot swapping


  • Premium price for a premium headset
  • Average quality microphone

The Turtle Beach Stealth Pro may have an unassuming look and only come in black, but that’s because it wants no distractions getting in the way of the fact that it’s an incredible wireless gaming headset.

Unmatched immersive audio leads to a wealth of features that also include Superhuman Hearing, an addition that needs to be heard to be believed. With a subpar microphone the only downside, it’s rare that we find ourselves happy to come to terms with a premium price because it’s more than worth the return.

How to choose the best gaming headsets

Here’s what you should consider when shopping for the best gaming headset:

  • Pricing: Cheap gaming headsets can cost as little as $15 (£15), while premium cans scale upwards of $349 (£349). Deciding on your budget first is a great way to narrow down your options, and then you can work out whether you’d rather pay for design, features, or audio.
  • Battery Life: Given that wireless headsets are designed to be used cable-free, you don’t want a product that needs recharging every couple of hours. If battery life is important to you, pay particular attention to the battery life and recharging time, as well as the charging method.
  • Design: You’ll be wearing a gaming headset on your head, potentially in public or on streams. Headsets come in all shapes, sizes, and styles, so you’re bound to find one that suits you.
  • Connection options: Generally speaking, the more connectivity options a headset has, the better.

How we tested the best gaming headsets

The best wireless gaming headsets immerse you in the best PC games and let you move around without cables. We spend hours playing games on each headset we review, as well as putting them through daily tasks, streams, and music listening.

Our rigorous and real-life headset testing covers the features, overall design, connectivity, and of course, the audio quality. In the case of wireless headsets, we also put the manufacturer’s quoted battery life to the test. More expensive gaming headsets often come with apps to change the audio levels, so we also review this software when relevant. Find out more about how we test, rate, and review on PCGamesN.

Do pro gamers use wired or wireless headsets?

Pro gamers use both. Neither is going to be inherently better for gaming. If you become quite animated while you game, a wireless controller will eliminate the risk of cable-related dilemmas, but with a wire set, you never need to worry about batteries running out.

Are headsets worth it for gaming?

The answer to this is going to be different for everybody, but they’re definitely worth it if:

  • You want a clear and convenient way to communicate with teammates
  • You don’t want to make too much noise for those around you
  • You want to more deeply appreciate the soundscapes of your favorite games
  • You find it hard to hear properly from your PC speakers

Do expensive gaming headsets make a difference?

Not all gaming headsets are created equal. While there are some rip-offs out there (not on this list), generally speaking, the more you spend on a headset, the better quality of the product and the better the sound quality.
