Best Value PC Gaming Headset 2013

Updated on February 21, 2014

Top Rated PC Gaming Headsets for the Money 2014

As I've gotten older gaming has evolved from me. When I was younger I would game all day long without having to worry about a lot of real-life situations. Now that I'm a Dad it's much more of a privilege rather than an every day grind and because of the lack of time that I have, I try to make the most out of my game time. That involves inviting a lot of my friends, coworkers, and relatives to game with me as well has having the best darn equipment that money can buy. In this post we'll take a look at a few of the top rated PC gaming headsets on the market in 2014.

Look. I'm not one of these bloggers that's going to make you think that a new headset is going to take you from last place on COD or BF3 to first place. If you stink, then you simply need more practice. That being said, a headset can make you a little bit better by allowing you to hear exactly where your opponent is coming from. Perhaps more importantly, it adds to your overall gaming experience. I wouldn't want to watch or hear a much anticipated new movie using my monitor and its integrated speakers, and I'm certainly not going to do that with a new game.

Top 10 PC Gaming Headsets 2014 - Professional Gaming Headsets

Astro A40 MLG Pro Headset

My #1 on this list has to be the Astro A40 which is regularly used in professional tournaments around the globe. Whether you're a console or PC gamer this gives you just about the best bang for your buck in the $200 range and it's durable enough to last you a long time.

Specifications include; 7.1 Dolby and Dolby Headphone Surround, Audiophile-Grade Sound and Crystal-Clear Voice Communication, Circumaural ear coupling, 6.0mm uni-directional noise canceling microphone, custom, and a swap cable system.

Sennheiser PC 360 Gaming Headset

Sennheiser has been making professional audio products since 1945. While their products are a bit more expensive, their headsets are extremely durable and simply sound fantastic.

The PC 360 is designed with professional gamers in mind. It has an open design for keeping your head cool and an extremely clear noise cancelling microphone. Overall I'd recommend this for gamers looking for both a gaming and music listening solution.

Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930

I've used the G930 extensively and it's probably the most popular wireless headset among gamers in the $100 price range. I can tell you that the advertised 40 foot distance range is accurate. I regularly keep my headphones on while heading upstairs and around the house to get a drink. Logitech has also done a really good job with the 7.1 surround sound as I tend to hear my opponents just a little bit better than I do with my hi-fi headset.
