Plantronics GAMECOM 818 Wireless Headsets
These wireless headsets are very light on the head and very comfortable to wear for a few hours gaming. It has a range of 40 feet which is pretty decent considering the price. This headset can easily last an entire day on battery. The sound quality is good with decent noise canceling. The build quality is a bit flimsy and it feels cheaply made despite the price, especially when compared to both wired headsets listed above. Another thing to consider is that it will start to feel uncomfortable on the ear after wearing for long hours. If you’re looking for a dirt cheap pair of Bluetooth gaming headset and don’t mind the cheap build quality, the Plantronics GAMECOM 818 Wireless Headset is a decent option.
The Plantronics GAMECOM 818 Wireless Headset gets an Overall RATING OF 6.8 out of 10
The Logitech G430 with Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound is a step above the cheaper and more affordable gaming headsets on this list. The G430 is lightweight and comes with soft sport ear cups that are able to swivel 90° degrees for that added fit which provides comfort especially when gaming for long hours. Cushioning on the ear is soft and deep which is very surprising for a gaming headset in this price range. Sound quality is pretty great very clean and clear even better than the headsets listed above. The surround sound is activated through a driver that you have to download from Logitech’s website and it’s only compatible with Windows machines. The mic sounds pleasant with noise canceling to keep unwanted background noise away. One thing I love about the G430 is that it offers live monitoring and this means whatever you speak into the microphone you can hear in the headphones, this is a feature that a lot of the gaming headsets don’t offer in this price range. There’s also a control panel on the cord that has a mic mute switch, headphone volume control and a clip on the back so you can clip it to your shirt. The G430 is compatible with PS4, and Windows devices.

HyperX Cloud Stinger Gaming Heads
The HyperX Cloud Stinger is my favorite budget gaming headset on this list. The Cloud Stinger is the most affordable and budget friendly headset you can get from HyperX. Comfort is key with the Cloud Stinger headset, there is a leather padding inside of the headband that provides a nice cushion for your cranium and each ear cup can rotate 90° degrees and also pivots allowing them to fit perfectly over your ears. The ear cups have memory foam cushions that are very soft and comfortable so gaming for long hours won’t be a problem even for those who wear glasses. Sound quality is excellent the best in class and even as good as more expensive headphones. The mic is able to move up, down and bend to or from your face so mic quality will depend on how you position your mic. It’s compatible with Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, Mac and Mobile devices. One thing to note, if you own an older Xbox One you will have to buy a separate adapter. The HyperX Cloud Stinger is the absolute best budget gaming headset in the lower price range that you should definitely buy…
