PC gamers have no shortage of headsets to choose from, so we've tested and rounded up the very best PC gaming headsets available to buy today.


When it comes to the sheer number of product options out there, nothing beats PC gaming. Whether you're talking games, hardware components, or the vast selection of accessories, PC gamers have an overwhelming number of options to choose from. And while that's generally a good thing, it can make finding quality accessories difficult, especially when it comes to the best gaming headset for PC. With so many PC headsets to choose from, you might have to dig for quite some time, reading dozens of reviews before you find the right option for you. Thankfully, we've tested a large number of PC accessories and have rounded up some of our top PC gaming headset picks, from SteelSeries and Razer to HyperX and other quality brands.

One of the upsides of PC gaming headsets is that they tend to also work with one or both of the major video game consoles. Many PC gaming headsets are compatible with the PS5 and Xbox Series X--some can even be connected to the Nintendo Switch--making them multi-use if you own or ever decide to buy one of the new consoles. In fact, every PC gaming headset we've selected for this guide works with one or both of them.

A PC gamer's setup is only as good as their equipment, so you'll want to make sure you have the right accessories to suit your needs.
