Best Overall

You can always trust Logitech when it comes to wireless accessories. And with the Logitech G533, we cannot help but say “WOW” in everything about it. The sounds, the ergonomics, the personalized set-ups, everything about it is awesome.

Pros:
  • Ergonomic
  • Good battery life
  • Configurable with G PRO
Cons:
  • Slightly muffled sound
  • Slightly muffled mic quality

So if you combine Lossless digital audio transmission with top-notch ergonomics and 7.1 seamless surround sound, you get the Logitech G533. It is one of the brand’s top accessories in the wireless category and it shows. There is minimal latency between device and headphones and playing with the G533 is such a breeze whether you are playing on consoles, PC or even mobile. The amazing paddings also make sure that you get to wear it all the time to a maximum of 15 hours. Recharging is easy but you can always use a disposable pack anyway. Plus, the patented G PRO software can configure the settings for your G533 for a more personalized touch.

Best Value

The JLab Audio Play is an easy pick-up and connect wireless headphones. While it is cheap, it sure brings a lot of value especially with its 22-hour battery life and Bluetooth capability. you can always use the headphones with a wire too.

Pros:
  • Decent stereo sund
  • Very cheap
  • Long 22-hr battery life
Cons:
  • Not ergonomic
  • 3.5mm cable is thin

The JLab Audio Play may not look banger but it is a quick getaway to satiate your wireless headphone desires. It includes a retractable boom microphone and decent stereo sounds. It doesn’t do much except that it is very cheap and highly reliable for any given platform. Just do not treat this headset like a competitive type such as the Razer Nari because the audio quality can only do so much. Overall, it is not a bad wireless gaming headset at all especially if you are solely playing casually and not relying on in-game sounds to get the upper hand against other players.

Longest Battery Life

The SteelSeries Arctis 1 is popular for its long battery life and very durable build. It is also a reliable wireless headset for competitive gaming and even casual play sessions. Known for its heavy-duty yet light design and remarkable sound quality, the SteelSeries Arctis 1 should not be taken lightly; a great wireless headset for the serious gamers.

Pros:
  • Supreme audio
  • Color blends to connected platform
  • Long battery life
Cons:
  • A bit too padded
  • Slightly muffled microphone

Conveniently, there is a wireless version of the already-astonishing SteelSeries Arctis 1. Overall, it has a very low latency and a very high battery life that will keep you up and playing for days. SteelSeries Arctis 1 uses a lossless 2.4 GHz wireless technology – resulting in nano speed response times. As for the rest of its features, the Arctis 1 earcups are woven with the finest fabric, the headband is flexible, the microphone is clear and detachable and the weight is very light. It sports a nice all-black low-profile design to make it look simple yet so powerful. If you need a good example of how good a wireless gaming headset can be, it’s the SteelSeries Arctis 1.

Best Audio

The Razer Nari is the wireless equivalent of the crowd-favorite Razer Kraken. It is mostly known for its amazing sound quality – especially since the headphones are powered with THX and Lossless 2.4GHz. As a result, you get theater-quality sounds anywhere you go.

Pros:
  • Superior surround sound
  • Ergonomic
  • Strong build
Cons:
  • Expensive
  • Rare ringing noises

The Razer Nari is best for both casual singleplayer gaming experience and also for heart-pounding competitive multiplayer. Thanks to its enhanced THX audio, you can hear sounds better than any wireless headphones. Plus, it lets you configure the settings due to its personalized 50mm directional drivers. It is not cheap at all but every cent of this baby is worth it. Long battery life, amazing sounds, and a lightweight ergonomic design, the Razer Nari should be yours to keep.

Best for FPS and Multiplayer

We discussed about the ASTRO Gaming Call of Duty A20 about how it is good for consoles. If you cannot see the bigger picture, this ASTRO A20 headset has a custom Call of Duty design all over – which makes it perfect for a CoD fanboy. Whether you like CoD or not, the A20 performs its best during FPS and multiplayer shooters.

Pros:
  • High-quality audio and mic
  • 15+ hours battery life
  • Fast charging
Cons:
  • Slightly heavy
  • Quite expensive

The ASTRO Gaming Call of Duty A20 may seem like a gimmick at first; that is until you experience it first-hand. It is a heavy-duty gaming headset that includes aspects that work best for multiplayer games even beyond Call of Duty such as 7.1 surround sound and clear mic quality. The design itself is the usual CoD type of design and one that you would expect from a company that targets the mainstream FPS game demographic. It also carries a Lossless 2.5Ghz frequency and a very high battery life of up to 15 hours. The mic quality is pretty good and the sound quality is top-notch. Nothing much else we can talk about here except if you are a big fan of the franchise, this one is definitely for you.

What We Would Buy

Breaking it all down, the Logitech G533 is the best all-around wireless gaming headphones that is a must-buy. But if you cannot afford it, there is always the reliable JLab wireless with Bluetooth and 22 hour battery life. If you prefer headphones that has that same battery life but a far more superior build and audio quality, go for the SteelSeries Arctis 1. But if you want theater-quality audio, you will need to buy the Razer Nari instead. And finally, if you love FPS games and multiplayer above all else, the ASTRO Call of Duty A20 is your best shot.
