Whenever it comes to headsets, I will always choose a pair that’s made specifically for gaming because of the overall better quality they offer compared to regular headphones. Choosing the best gaming headphone is not the easiest job in the world with so many products available on the market, but we are here to help you make the best choice and share with you the best headsets for gaming in 2016 (and beyond).

In order to be considered great, a gaming headset needs to deliver extremely high quality sound, it must have a very good microphone as well (even though for many this would be optional), it must be comfortable and it must look good because, well… you have to look good at all times! Also, I would personally go for wired gaming headphones instead of wireless ones, because these usually offer better overall sound quality and you don’t have to constantly charge them. Of course, if you think that you will use them outside as well (for listening to music, for example), the wireless ones might be easier to use.

Don’t worry, though! We have both wired gaming headphones below, as well as wireless ‘phones on our list below, so you’re certainly covered AND whatever you choose, you will surely be satisfied with the results. Now let’s stop talking and let’s check out below the best gaming headsets for PC gamers for 2016!

1Sades SA-710

When it comes to a combination of awesome design and low price, you can’t beat the Sades SA-710 gaming headsets. And the lower price doesn’t come with lower quality! The ear pad and head pad are both soft and comfortable to wear, while the beam pad is segmented for perfect adjustment of the headphones. But its technical features are surprisingly good as well: it comes with a virtual 7.1 surround technology, as well as noise cancelling capabilities, resulting in extremely clear and realistic sounds. Surprisingly lightweight, these headphones are cheap and amazing. Add to all these bonuses the fact that the headphones light up with a nice blue color (the only downside being that you can’t turn it off… but why would you like to do that?)

If you’re on a budget, but you still need a great pair of gaming headsets, check them out (click here for UK/Europe).
