Looking For A New Wireless Headset

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, for the past little bit I've had Void Pro's, which ive hated and have had nothing but issues with. I have good money to spend, but want to get the most out of it. Spending as little as possible is always a plus, of course.

 

Wishlist, in order of imporance:

Wireless

Good mic

Good sound quality

Good battery life

USB-C Charging

 

If I spend more i expect it to last me longer. I don't really care about RGB or anything fancy, just want a good sound experience for me and my mates on the other end.


Brands I wholeheartedly reccomend (though do have flawed products): Apple, Razer, Corsair, Asus, Gigabyte, bequiet!, Noctua, CoolerMaster, GSkill (RAM only)

Corsair HS70 is a damn good sub-$100 wireless headset!

So is the Logitech G533!

But my top recommendation is the HyperX Cloud Flight wireless!

No wireless headset or speakers will ever be "good".

 

You have two options, "expensive and passable" and "cheap and rubbish". To which I would suggest reversing the wishlist order. Find headphones that are USB-C first, have good sound quality (10-22,000hz), have a proper echo-cancellation microphone with a reasonable frequency response (greater than 12000hz), then consider wireless.

 

The problem is that wireless, especially bluetooth, is lossy, and noisy. Bluetooth headphones often sound worse than the built-in tinny laptop speakers in a laptop. There is simply no way to get good quality out of Bluetooth unless you buy something supporting LDAC or LHDC. These devices have only been made available in the last year.

 

Which leaves proprietary wireless solutions like SteelSeries Arctis 7. 2.4Ghz however is where WiFi and Bluetooth already live, so it may not perform as expected if you have 2.4Ghz equipment.

Not looking at bluetooth at all, due to windows' utterly useless implementation. I don't have any active connections to my 2.4GHz Wifi, and have not noticed issues with crosstalk with my bluetooth controller with my current void pro.

Ngl my bluetooth Sennheiser HD 4.40BT will SMOKE any of my gaming headphones in sound quality.  However, the wireless latency of BT is complete shit, and so is WIndows' handling of BT devices.  So, bluetooth headphones are not for gamers.  Sorry, audiophiles! :P

 

I stick by my recommendations.

Don't get a wireless headset. They're all mediocre-awful. If you must get a headset, then get the Cooler Master MH751 or Sennheiser PC37x. If you are open to other headphones, get the HD 6xx. If you must get a wireless headset, then get Airpods Pro. They are better and more convenient than gaming headphones

I have propods, issue is that Windows' bluetooth audio sucks. Though I will try it again with this motherboard...

Aight, not sure if it's the new build of windows or superior BT on my new motherboard. BUT, my propods feel great now. Thanks for making me think to try again!
