The wireless revolution continues, and don’t you feel free? Finding the best wireless gaming headsets in 2021 isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of ordeal. While there are some great multi-platform headsets, there are some pretty special exclusive sets, too!
Some of the sets on the list are great to enjoy music with, while others have some higher quality microphones for trash talking. The best news is: none of these headsets costs an arm and a leg, but we think you’re going to feel luxurious trying on any of them.
In no particular order, here is our list of the Best Wireless Gaming Headsets in 2021!
The HS70 Pro headset from Corsair is a fascinating balance of high-end quality and basic, no-frills presentation. Their sound quality is superb, especially when considering they cost less than a hundred bucks!
The mic is detachable and of decent quality, and while we don’t love the look or feel of this set, they get the job done where it really matters, and they are pretty comfortable, even for longer gaming sessions.
If this were a best budget wireless headset list, this would be listed also at the top, but with number 1 next to it.

Why Buy: The HS70 represents the best value-per-dollar ratio.
Why Not Buy: None of the more expensive sets on this list are really that much more expensive, and you should easily be able to find a pair you love more.
This set is unmatched, in terms of sound quality. On the other hand, they are really bulky and quite expensive.
The high cost is justified, however.
One quick listen is all it takes to see, or rather hear, where your extra dollars are going; the GSP 670’s sound phenomenal.

This is a very comfortable gaming headset. And the sound quality is almost too good.
Honestly, the low-end in these headphones is so punchy, and the levels are spread so splendidly, and spaciously, that we find music a little too distracting while gaming. I actually think the sound capabilities are almost a little too jarring in many ways.
Specs: Frequency response 15-20,000 Hz Drivers- Dynamic, 53 mm with neodymium magnets Battery life- About 20 hours
Why Buy: The ultra-comfy HyperX Cloud 2 has a sharp design and overachievs in sound quality. It’s got a great price tag, as well.
Why Not Buy: Too much padding, and you might prefer something a little more slick-looking. The mic, is also just average.
The 100 hour battery life makes up a lot of minds, right away.
Wireless, sturdy and long-lasting, this is the best gaming headset in terms of battery life. The GSP 370 is ready for some consecutive all-nighters and tournaments.

Rounding out our Best Wireless Gaming Headsets list is this awesome, budget-friendly pair from SteelSeries.
The cost of the Arctis 1 is astonishing, considering how adequately, in certain cases even admirably, the wireless headset performs.
