and currently looking to go wireless. At the moment I've seen recommendations for both the Astro A20 and the Logitech G77 in some "top 10" lists but what do you think?

 

What kinda wireless headset would you recommend for gaming (PUBG for sound placement) and streaming? So need something that will help identify the direction of sounds in game but also be comfortable for long term use. Budget I'd say is between £100-200 roughly so please help me out 🙂

To be honest here. Yes sound quality is affected a bit with a wireless solution but if you need the convenience of wireless then the HyperX cloud flights are very good for the price in terms of being wireless and it has good range if that is your NEED in a new headset. If you care about sound quality the most. Go for a pair of headphones with a seperate mic.

Cloud Alpha Wireless is at the top of your price range but should sound as good as what you're used to if not better and it has absolutely staggering battery life.

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

I wouldn't recommend any wireless headset, go wired. Convenience is not worth the loss in quality.

Mic isn't an issue cause I've got a separate xlr mic setup, just looking for something with the balance of decent sound and convenience cause when I get up or move around a bit then the wire is a real bother. So if there's a wireless headset that doesn't suffer too much in terms of sound quality then I'd prefer that over wired as I'm not a pro gamer or doing any tourneys.

Any wireless headset with a USB dongle will sound good compared to most bluetooth ones.

Picked up a set of these for a good deal so I'll try them out, if it's not what I'm looking for I'll look to the Alpha set. Thanks for your advice
