We’ve tested more than 50 gaming headsets and over 358 headphones in total and here are our best picks for gaming on PS4 in 2019 we’ll start with the more budget options, but you can always jump straight to the mid-range. You can also follow the links to our ended up reviews for each headset and if you want to see all our test results and how we do the test and compare even further, check out our website. With that being said, let’s start with the budget recommendations, so around $50, you have the option between the course of his 60 or the upper X clouds. The Corsair is will generally be the better pick for most compared to the hyper X. The courses have a more casual design.
We have a detachable mic and better build quality. This makes them a versatile option that you can also use outdoors as well as if your console controllers and PC, the HS 60 come with a USB adapter which gives you access to the IQ utility engine software on windows, so you get a bit more customisation options than the hyper extinguishers, but only on PC since the safe settings were not carry over to your PS four. On the other hand, for your consoles, they both connect via the 3.5 millimetres or one ATRs auto Jack of your controller and both have audio and mic support for the [inaudible] and even the Xbox One. Diaper extinguishers are a good alternative. If you find the course of X 60 a bit out of your budget, especially since they have a better boom, mic , they won’t be as practical or as versatile as of course says, since you can’t remove their mic and they design does not look as good for outdoor use.
However, if you strictly use your headphones for gaming at home on your PS four then there an affordable wired option with a good base AB sound. That sounds exciting for gaming and just listening to music for something a bit more mid-range, so around a hundred dollars we would recommend the Logitech G nine 33 or the HyperX cloud to the largest tech Jeannine 33 I added more versatile option of the two since they can be used wired Oh wirelessly with your PS four and PC, they have a decent 12 hour battery life and very little latency, about 22 milliseconds which is barely noticeable. Those will have programmable buttons and one of the best software support that we’ve tested for any gaming headset thanks to the largest tech G hub. The hub gives you an unparalleled level of controls with the G nine 33 which is excellent. If you also game on PC, you can set windows commands and even launch programs by mapping them to the great physical buttons.
You get a great 10 band EQ presets room effects and auto-off timer profiles. My control and DTS 7.1 surround sound settings. The similarly designed G nine 35 I have bit more recent and I’ve light sync RGB lighting to match your gaming setup but they are slightly more expensive and have fewer features and control options than the nine 33 especially if you plan to use them with your phone since the other cable doesn’t come with an inline remote like the nine 33 in this case, if you do end up using your gaming headphones outdoors, then the HyperX cloud two may be the better option. They have a sturdier and sleeker-looking build quality than the larger techs and more comfortable design. They also have a detachable mic which you can remove to have a more casual look when using these headphones outside. Unfortunately, they are not wireless so they may not be as convenient for all gamers.
On the upside, you can use them with your PS4 controller and have audio and mic support and no latency since the wired that mic is also a little bit better for both recording quality and noise handling than the G933 and they come with a few accessories. There’s a second set of pads included in the box and they come with a USB adapter that gives you a few controls at your fingertips and some customisation options on PC. The cloud core is basically the same headsets with fewer accessories at a slightly cheaper price point and if your phone doesn’t have a headphone Jack or you prefer a wireless option when using them casually outdoors, then check out the cloud mix instead of the support Bluetooth, but a considerably more expensive than the cloud too and may not be worth it for some since that still connects to your peers for via the controller.
Lastly, the best gaming headsets that you can get for your PS4 in 2019 so far, are there still series artists per Wallace or the artists seven 2019 edition. If you need something a little cheaper and the Astro a fifties for PS4. The two steel series headsets have a solid build quality long battery lives and a good comfortable design that some may prefer over the fifties although there may be a bed site on the head for some the pro wireless at a slightly more well-rounded pic compared to the cheaper artist seven since they support Bluetooth and have a wealth of customisation options at your fingertips. Things to the feature pack transmitter, they also come with a mobile audio cable to use with your phone and have a rejectable mic, which makes them quite a bit more versatile than the Astro a fifties they have a good widest range and low latency, about 37 milliseconds, an excellent 24 hour battery life and an extra battery so you never really without power since you can charge the other battery in the transmitter while you’re gaming.
The two artists headsets also have a great suite of customisation options that you can personalise on your PC and to settings hold when switching over to the PS for as long as you use them. Wireless sleep with their respective transmitters. On the upside, if you get the pro wireless, you don’t need a PC to tweak some of the settings. Again, thanks to the feature back transmitter, but unfortunately the mic of the pro wireless has a few known issues that have yet to be patched. It has fairly loud hist that varies per unit and you can control the mic level as easily within the app, unlike the artist seven. However, despite the slightly inconsistent mic performance, the pro wireless, I still one of the best and most featured back gaming headsets that we’ve tested for gaming on PS four or PC, and if you need something a little cheaper, the artists seven are a great alternative.
As for the fifties, they’re a great option for wireless gaming on your PS4 provided you get the right base station for your console. There is a roundabout way to get the Xbox variant working on PS4, but it just won’t be as easy or as practical as getting to PS4 variant of the headset. On the upside, they have quite a few connection options, which also makes them a good home theatre headphone and the dock charging on the base station. It looks great when wrestling the headphones next to your console on your TV stand or table. Unfortunately, they do not have a versatile design so you won’t be able to use them with your phone outdoors. Unlike the steel series, the eight fifties mic is also not removable does not retract into the ear cup and you can’t use them wired with an audio cable. They also do have a great battery life, but their emotion-based auto or feature does help extend the battery performance enough to be suitable for most gaming use cases.
They also have a decent app. We have a good amount of customisation options on PC that will hold when you switch over to your PS VR. So overall, if you want a budget option and do not mind a wire design, then go for the course of the HS 16 or the HyperX stinger. If you strictly use your headphones at home for gaming, if you want a wireless option for [inaudible] and also sometimes game on PC than the G nine 33 I agree with a lot of customisation options but they’re not as well designed or as outdoors friendly as the IBEX cloud two and lastly, if you want the best option for your PS four then go for the steel series octaves pro wireless. That would be your best pick but there mic has a few issues and that somewhat expensive. In that case, you may want to go for the slightly cheaper artists seven 2019 edition or the Astro A 54 PS for if you want a great looking base station end up charging.
A few notable mentions that didn’t make the cut but are still good options for gaming on your PS. For the reason, Neri ultimate has a unique base effect that makes the low rumbles and explosions and games sound particularly exciting. However, they are very bulky and not as customisation, especially since the EQ doesn’t hold when switching to your PS for the break Scouts flight are good mixed usage option. If you want wireless gaming with your peers for in the casual enough design that you can use outdoors, wired with your phone. But unfortunately, when wired, they do not have a mic that will work with your console controllers, unlike the cloud mix. And lastly, you have the turtle beach elite pro super amp or the Astro eight 40 make Sam V2. They’re both great headsets. If you don’t mind a wire design with a DAC for added controls and customisation options at your fingertips. However, being wired there may be a bit more convenient for gaming on PC than on PS4. Unlike some of the wireless options on this list, and that’s pretty much it. Let us know in the comments if we missed any great gaming headsets that you think should have been included on this list.
