1. Astro Gaming A50
Under every testing scenario, the A50 continuously outperforms! This headset nails all the feature points you’d expect from high-quality gear such as auto shutoff, hassle-free wireless connection, and long battery life. But more importantly, the A50 makes any game title more engrossing and entertaining with the extremely visceral and powerful sound.
2. Tritton Warhead 7.1
The Tritton Warhead 7.1 most assuredly achieves its goal of being one of the best Xbox 360 gaming headsets that money can buy. It’s beautifully made, rammed with thoughtful and genuinely useful features and sounds superb, although not quite as warm and inviting as the Astro Gaming A50 or Creative Labs Sound Blaster Recon 3D Omega. The way in which it operates truly wirelessly, even with an old-style Xbox 360, is a boon, too. The perfect gift for the keen Xbox 360 gamer who has everything.
3. RAZER TIAMAT 7.1
The Razer Tiamat comes in two versions: The Razer Tiamat 7.1 and the Razer Tiamat 2.2. The Razer Tiamat 7.1 is the world’s first true 7.1 surround sound headset, providing a true-to-life positional audio depth through 10 discrete drivers. You can even fine-tune each audio channel, position, and bass depth to your exact enjoyment. With padded leatherette ear cups, you can stay plugged into the soundtrack of your life with no fatigue.
4. Turtle Beach Ear Force XP400
The XP400 is a premium wireless gaming headset featuring Dolby surround sound and wireless Xbox LIVE chat for a totally immersive experience. The XP400 features a state-of-the-art 2.4/5Ghz dual-band Wi-Fi radio that virtually eliminates wireless interference with other devices. Its dual-pairing Bluetooth technology lets you chat wirelessly on Xbox 360 or PS3 and answer mobile phone calls – all while gaming in amazing 360 degree wireless surround sound. Powered by a rechargeable battery, the XP400 provides up to 15 hours of play and the ability to recharge while gaming so you’ll never miss out on the action. If you’re serious about gaming, then get serious about the sound. Step up to the XP400 and experience game audio like never before.
5. Creative Labs Sound Blaster Recon 3D Omega
Creative Labs set out to make the ultimate gaming headset with the Sound Blaster Recon 3D Omega, and it succeeded in spectacular fashion. We would defy even the pickiest professional gamer to find anything wrong with it. It’s beautifully constructed so, even if you aren’t someone who spends your life playing Modern Warfare 3, you should find it’s the only gaming headset you’ll ever need. Sure, it’s pricey, but whether you’re hooking it up to a PC, Mac, Xbox 360 or PS3, and whether you’re into a driving game or World of Warcraft, it will meet your requirements with ease.
