With the PS4's fancy new 'plug headphones into the controller' solution, headsets may be about to become more of a 'thing' for console gamers accustomed to laying back in a big couch listening to sound booming from speakers. With that in mind, we thought it might be worthwhile to take a look at some headsets in the lead up to Christmas. What's worth getting?
Please bear in mind this isn't intended to be some sort of definitive final word on the matter. In fact, I'm keen to hear your feedback — what headsets are you using? What do you recommend? Let us know in the comments below.
I have so much money and I just don't care how I spend it...
Astro A50 Price: $349.95 Whenever headsets are discussed you can guarantee that the Astro A50s come into the discussion. We have a full review of the headset here that you can check out. These are expensive, but you are paying for guaranteed quality here.
I have money, but let's not get too crazy here...
Logitech G930 Price: $249.95 At $249.95 these are still pricey, but great 7.1 surround sound and sheer comfort may help you get over the dent in your bank balance. There have been some complaints regarding the durability of these things but if you're careful with the things you own you should be a-okay.
I have some money but I don't want to spend it all on a headset!
Corsair Vengeance 1500 Price: $119.95 You'd be hard pushed to find a better headset for this price, but if you have some alternate suggestions I'd love to hear them. Great sound for a great price.
