5 Best Gaming Headsets 2019

Every gamer should own a quality headset.  All gamers know that having a good quality headset can truly give you that competitive edge. While we all probably have a nice set of desktop speakers, there are many downsides to using speakers over a quality headset, especially during extended or competitive gaming sessions

With so many choices for a gaming headset out there these days, it’s easy to get bogged down. Here at OfficeLyfe, we have much experience (and historical frustration) in trying to find the ‘perfect’ gaming headset. It’s true, this is somewhat a subjective topic, as comfort will vary from person to person, however after much research and personal use, we have gathered five headsets that we truly believe you cannot go wrong with. 


Narrowing down the massive, and ever-growing list of gaming headsets all the way down to five was no simple task. There are many factors to consider, and even so, there are numerous headsets out there that almost made this list. While there are some headsets that didn’t make this list, that would still serve you well, those that did make this list have been heavily considered and selected to save you time on your research. 

To make this list, these headsets had to be:

  • Comfortable yet durable
  • A good value, no matter the price point
  • Average or above-average sound quality
  • Average or above-average mic quality

With that said, since these headphones do not feature a built-in mic, you would probably be better suited looking elsewhere if you prefer to game on consoles. If, however, you are a PC gamer and currently use a desktop microphone, The Sennheiser HD 599s would be an excellent choice. These headphones are so lightweight, long gaming sessions (or music/work for that matter) are a non-issue. The sound quality is exactly what you would expect from Sennheiser, and the price is much more budget-friendly than you would think.
