Best Overall

The HyperX Cloud Stinger is truly the best among budget gaming headsets for the PS4. Tailored to be cross-platform, the inexpensive Stinger version provides the best aspects you need when it comes to elaborating the audio of the game.

Pros:
  • Affordable
  • Great stereo quality
  • Ergonomic
Cons:
  • Thin cable
  • Only decent mic

The HyperX Cloud Stinger is one of 3 versions in the Cloud series. And if you are searching for a HyperX Cloud headset that is the cheapest yet still highly valuable that retains most of the essentials of what makes the Cloud series great, you get the Stinger version. However, do not underestimate its capabilities. As you see, the Stinger possesses amazing stereo quality, signature memory foam earcups and a lightweight frame. As a result, the HyperX Cloud Stinger is a very durable PS4 headset. We put this on the top of our list simply because of how affordable it is for the value that you are getting. All-around is what we could best describe the Stinger.

Best Value

You have seen the RUNMUS Gaming Headset. Now, meet the RUNMUS K2 Red – an enhanced version of the brand’s best-selling headset, but now comes in a delicious ruby red color. It retains an affordable price while making improvements to the already-amazing vanilla RUNMUS headset.

Pros:
  • Very affordable
  • Lots of great features
  • Amazing surround sound quality
Cons:
  • Not that ergonomic
  • Some struggles with adjustments
  • Requires adapter for Xbox One

There is a lot of value that you can gain from the RUNMUS K2 Red; first of all, it looks really beautiful especially with its crimson LED lighting. And second, it uses the same good features of its predecessor, namely the 7.1 surround sound, good-quality noise-cancelling microphone, a light frame and 50mm directional drivers. As a result, you get the most out of your game’s audio without paying for a lot. Affordable and accessible are what the K2 Red excels at. And if budget gaming is your thing, the RUNMUS K2 Red is a very welcoming addition. And while it contrasts the default blue color of the PS4, it just adds more color to your gaming set-up.

Best Headset for Competitive Games

The Razer Kraken: one of the best-selling gaming headsets of all time. There is a reason why people love it and that is because it suits best for competitive games: sounds are clear enough to hear feint sounds from distances and hearing voice chat is very transparent. It’s a best-seller for all the right reasons: competitive-level audio quality and clear mic communications.

Pros:
  • Affordable high-profile headset
  • Top-tier surround sound
  • Killer design
Cons:
  • Only decent mic quality
  • Earcups aren't comfortable

The Razer Kraken is the best option for when you need a reliable headset for online multiplayer. Whether you are doing a 1v1 in a fighting game, or a team-based shooter that requires map control, the Kraken will become your best buddy to get you that win It includes a 7.1 surround sound pair of speakers, gel-supported ear cups, alloy frames, lightweight, retractable gaming microphone, OTG volume control and full adjustability on the headband. The Razer Kraken also includes a 50mm customizable driver – which vastly improves the overall audio quality versus generic headsets.

Best Headset Microphone

When you are very serious in team cooperation and executions, the V8 IMBA Pro Gaming Headset is your best bet. Specializing in communications, the V8 IMBA becomes a very essential headset for Rainbow Six: Siege, Overwatch or the upcoming The Last of Us Part II multiplayer.

Pros:
  • Surreal stereo quality
  • Excellent mic quality
  • Beautiful RGB lighting
Cons:
  • Stereo is a bit muffled
  • Needs lots of adjustments to make it fully comfortable

Sporting a vibrant RGB lighting and abundant features to make it viable for both singleplayer stories and competitive multiplayer, the V8 IMBA Pro Gaming Headset is loaded with high-quality stereo sounds, an updated current-year design and a clear microphone. Mostly, this game is best for online games – particularly those that demand lots of cooperation like Rainbow Six: Siege and Apex Legends. For its price, it stands out as a reliable gaming headset for any multiplayer game thanks to the studio-quality microphone alone.

Cheapest PS4 Headset

The ONIKUMA Gaming Headset is an easily digestible peripheral for when you just need a decent PS4 headset quickly. It is not the most booming surround sound quality but the price and the durable design makes up for it. Great for when you just don’t want to overthink which headset is best for your console.

Pros:
  • Strong build
  • Great design
  • Very cheap
Cons:
  • Slightly muffled surround sound
  • just par mic quality

First and foremost, the ONIKUMA Gaming Headset looks pretty good especially as a cheap headset. Also, you rarely get to find 7.1 surround sound speakers within its price range so that makes it a huge bonus. Quite frankly, there is nothing much in the ONIKUMA that will make you go WOW except for its unbelievably low price. That and couple it with a very sturdy build – fitted with a braided cord, meshed pads and alloy frames. The surround sound is good but it tends to hear like its a bit muffled. Also, the mic quality is just tolerable but not infuriating. Still, for the price, the ONIKUMA is worth buying.

What We Would Buy

The PS4 is always enjoyed when you have a quality headset and all these choices are great no matter what your preference is. If you simply need an all-around gaming headset, it is the HyperX Cloud Stinger that you want. Want something more budgeted but with lots of value? Pick the RUNMUS K2 Red. And if you need a gaming headset fit for competitive multiplayer, you can always either pick the Razer Kraken or the V8 IMBA. Lastly, if you want to save a lot of money without compromising quality, the ONIKUMA is your best bet.
