Plantronics RIG 500E

Conclusions The RIG 500's big draw is its flexibility, and the $150 RIG 500E is the most flexible model in the series. It gives you just short of two gaming headsets (you'll have to get a second headband if you want both at once), each of which sounds...

Samsung Level Over

If you need the best over-ear noise cancellation on the market, look to the Bose QuietComfort 25, and its cousin, the QuietComfort 20, which is the best overall noise-cancellation set, but it's an in-ear model. If it's an excellent wireless headphone...

Corsair VOID Surround

When it comes to PC gaming, people tend to put a lot of focus on what's inside your PC, the kind of monitor that you have, and your keyboard and mouse. However, your audio solution is just as important as any of these other factors. Bad audio can break...

Sennheiser G4ME One

The Sennheiser G4ME ONE is a pair of excellent $200-range headphones that desperately wants to be an excellent gaming headset. It sounds fantastic, but without it willing to "slum it" in the realm of audio gimmicks and on-headset mixing it feels more...

Blue Microphones Mo-Fi headphones present a challenging proposition for buyers. From a sound-quality perspective, these headphones sound excellent, really. But from a comfort perspective, we feel like Blue got a little ahead of itself. There’s no need...

After a combined 160 hours of testing in two years, we still think Kingston's original HyperX Cloud is the best gaming headset for most people.

Jabra Move Wireless

The $100 price range is not exactly filled with excellent Bluetooth on-ear or over-ear headphone options, though we have several models we like for far less or lots more. The Harman Kardon BT and the JBL Synchros S400BT both offer sculpted, but...

Logitech G231 Prodigy

Conclusions Logitech's G231 Prodigy is a capable, well-made gaming headset for a very reasonable price. You can find headsets that feel more plush or offer a bit more crispness in the high-end, but you'll spend two or three times as much for those...

Beats by Dr. Dre Studio Wireless

Conclusion Obviously, if you're looking for a true-to-life, less-sculpted sound signature, the Beats Studio Wireless is not the answer. This is for bass lovers who want the booming lows to be balanced by sculpted high-mids. It's not an accurate sound,...

Plantronics Voyager 5200

Conclusions Plantronics Voyager headsets have had excellent voice quality for years. If you have a previous Voyager model like the amazing Legend, you don't need to replace it with the 5200. But if you're shopping for a heavy-usage, indoor-outdoor...

These are great, can't hear a thing outside not even traffic on a dual carriage way lol, not sure how much of this is down to the noise isolation or the fact that the headphones are pretty loud. Have tried to compare turning isolation off/on with music...

RHA T10i

If it's accurate frequency response you seek, the RHA T10i is far too sculpted—consider the Westone W10 or the Editors' Choice Bowers & Wilkins C5 Series 2, both of which offer different approaches to a more balanced response without ignoring bass. If...
