Has anyone used these budget gaming headphones?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'd like to buy a pair of headphones for around £50 (I'm based in Ireland but everything's more expensive here so will buy from the UK ). They'll be used for gaming and maybe the odd work call, but I'm not going to be streaming or anything like that. I probably won't use them for music either as I prefer wearing in-ear earphones when out and about.

 

Looking around there are 3x options that keep coming up:

1. The Logitech G432 - seems like the sound quality is good but I've seen concerns re build quality and some people seem to find them uncomfortable

2. SteelSeries Arctis 1 - seems to have good build quality but not great sound

3. The Razer Kraken X - seems the sound quality isn't as good, I've seen some comments about the sound balance being off, and the mic can't be folded up/removed. This is probably bottom of the list from what I've read.

 

I'm leaning towards the Logitech as I don't mind if they feel a bit cheap, as long as they don't actually break, but would love to know if anyone has these, what they think etc...

I have a pair of these as backup for when my wireless pair derps and I have had no issues with in game sound quality and comfort.


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Quote or tag me so I can see your response
