EPOS | Sennheiser GSP 670

EPOS Sennheiser GSP 670

  • From $299
  • Where To Buy: Amazon, Walmart

The EPOS | Sennheiser GSP 670 is a fantastic option for a holiday gift, if you want that gift to be one of the best gaming headsets on the market, and that’s why it’s the first stop on our guide.

Not only is this headset wireless, but it has the acoustical audio quality you would expect. You get a flip down boom mic that mutes itself when you flip it up, which makes using it so much easier than headsets that have a dedicated mute button.

You also have separate dials for adjusting volume of the chat and game audio independently. Which lets you fine tune the sound levels right to where you want them.

As for comfort, it’s one of the most comfortable gaming headsets out there. Thanks to its large (and replaceable) earpads, and headband that comes with both adjustable length to fit heads of all sizes and adjustable tension at the top for a more perfect fit.

Last but not least the wireless works over 2.4GHz with a USB dongle so you can use it for PC and PS4, and Bluetooth so you can use it for mobile. The software for enhancing the bass, mids, and treble as well as creating different sound profiles is only for PC though.

Aesthetics aside, the Sony Pulse 3D was designed specifically for use with the PS5. So you know it’s likely going to work well and perform its intended functions.

Like any wireless headset that works with this platform, it connects through a low-latency dongle you plug into the console’s USB port. It’s mic is also integrated instead of using an external boom mic, and all of the buttons for volume adjustment and muting are on the earcups. Making them easy to get to.

Logitech G Pro X Wireless

Logitech Pro X Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Headset

  • Price: $199.99
  • Where To Buy: Amazon & Various Other Retailers

The reason we love and chose this headset as one of the best gaming headsets for a holiday gift, is because is because of the sound quality, as well as the comfort and numerous other features.

First and foremost, this headset is comfortable and can be worn literally all day with no issues. After using this thing for over a month now with my PC gaming setup, I have gone through multiple 5+ hour sessions without taking it off and not having any feelings of fatigue.

Other notable features include the removable boom mic, as well as the premium build quality. Not to mention the built-in technology that works with the PC software to enable surround sound and user profiles for just the right audio. While this definitely shines on PC, it will work with PS5 and PS4, and should work with Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One as well.

The H3 Hybrid is EPOS’ update to the H3 from earlier this year. Coming with some big improvements that address most of the complaints we had about the original. For one, the volume adjustment dial is now easier to actually adjust. It still uses the same style, but it works a lot better.

Of course it’s also now Bluetooth compatible, and the boom mic detaches via a slick magnetic design. Making it super easy to take on and off. Comfort and sound quality wise, it’s great.  Overall, an excellent option for a gaming headset this holiday.

Razer has outdone itself with the Hammerhead True Wireless v2. They come with better audio than the original model, and are the only true wireless earbuds from the company to incorporate Chroma RGB. So far.

From top to bottom these are a big improvement. As they’re also more comfortable, have a slightly better design, and the audio quality rivals even the Hammerhead True Wireless Pro, but at $70 less. These are perfect for mobile gaming no matter the phone you have. And they’ll also work with PC in a pinch if you really need them to.

However, these definitely work best with mobile devices as that’s what they were intended for.

SteelSeries is on this list again because it makes excellent audio products, and the Arctis 1 is an excellent fit for multi-platform gamers.

This headset utilizes a USB-C transmitter for the wireless connection, which makes it perfect for mobile gaming, but it also works with PC, PS4 (it should also work for the PS5), and Nintendo Switch.

This doesn’t have the ski goggle headband like the Arctis 7P, but the headband is still adjustable, the ClearCast mic is detachable and Discord certified, and it features on-ear controls as well as a 20+ hour battery life.

Since it’s USB it should be a little bit easier to plug into you desktop or laptop. Even more so if your machine doesn’t have a 3.5mm jack. This is also a PC-only headset.

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal

Bang Olufsen Beoplay Portal For Xbox Headphones

  • Price: From $367

Just because you play on a console doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a premium pair of wireless gaming headphones. And it’s hard to get more premium than the Beoplay Portal from Bang & Olufsen, which are indeed wireless and designed exclusively for Xbox consoles.

They’re compatible with both Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. While expensive, you’re paying for premium audio quality, as well as a premium build with luxury materials. It also features what B&O are calling a digital boom mic. So you don’t have a physical boom in the way.

HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Wireless

HyperX CloudX Stinger Core for Xbox

  • Price: From $69.99
  • Where To Buy: Amazon & Various Other Retailers

The HyperX Cloud Stinger Core Wireless comes with 7.1 surround sound, and a comfortable design with over-the-ear fit and, one of our favorite features of a gaming headset. The flip to mute boom mic. This is more convenient and easier to use than headsets that use a mute button.

Not to mention it’s a little easier to flip up the boom and take a sip of water or whatever else you’re drinking than trying to move the mic out of the way on headsets that don’t have this feature. Primarily because most of them don’t have booms that are as rigid as this one. HyperX also makes a model that works for Xbox, and one that works for PlayStation and PC.

All that aside, this is a wireless headset with some decent audio from a highly reputable gaming peripheral company, at a great price point. Don’t sleep on HyperX for your gaming accessories, and at the very least consider the brand.

EPOS GTW 270 Hybrid

EPOS GTW 270 Hybrid Gaming True Wireless Earbuds 1

  • Price: From $199
  • Where To Buy: Amazon, Best Buy, Staples

There are two main reasons why we love this pair of earbuds for gaming. One, they work with PS4 and PS5 thanks to the USB-C dongle. Which, actually makes them perfect for Nintendo Switch too. And two, they also use Bluetooth technology. So you could use them wirelessly with your phone for mobile gaming either using the USB-C low-latency dongle, or through Bluetooth.

And since they use Bluetooth they’re a great fit for things like music and videos. The one downside is that voice chat doesn’t work with the USB-C dongle. So if you need to use these for chat, you need to connect through Bluetooth. Which makes these incapable of chat on the PS5.

EPOS GTW 270 Hybrid

Xbox Wireless Stereo Headset

Microsoft Wireless Stereo Headset for Xbox Series X 2

  • Price: $96.99
  • Where To Buy: Amazon & Various Other Retailers

Rounding out our gift guide for gaming headsets is the Xbox Wireless Stereo headset from Microsoft. This is meant exclusively for the Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One in the console department. But it will also work with PC if you play games there.

As a headset in terms of quality and build, it’s similar to the Pulse 3D that Sony makes for the PS5 and PS4. It’s also right around the same price point. And in most cases the cost is exactly the same as the MSRP is $99.99. There’s an adjustable boom mic for voice chat, and large cushiony earcups to keep you comfortable during longer play sessions.

Where it really stands out is the support for Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos. If you’ve never played games with Dolby Atmos sound before, you should. It makes a HUGE difference. And at this price? How could you refuse?

And remember, if you didn’t find any gaming headsets on our gift guide that work for you, you can always check out our Best Gaming Headsets guide which is updated monthly.
