Best Overall

We named the HyperX Cloud Alpha as the best overall in comfort because it displays more than just ergonomics. With a price that costs just under $100 and sweet features that make gameplay more immersive, there are plenty of good reasons why you should own this piece.

Pros:
  • Comfortable padding
  • Lightweight
  • Dual chamber drivers
Cons:
  • Not visually appealing much
  • A bit pricey

Gaming is better when you are at your most comfortable. Sometimes – and even a lot of times – you get those moments when the headphones become more painful than comfier. But with the HyperX Cloud Alpha, you can shake all that away. With dual chamber drivers that let you configure audio settings to your liking and memory foam earpads, you wouldn’t want to settle for anything less. It is a strong choice for pro gamers and a great option for ergonomic lovers.

 

Best Value

When it comes to cheap ergonomics, the best we can recommend you is the Logitech 981-000536 G430. It has one of the best cloth-based pads ever built for a gaming headset and at a very affordable price. Plus, it is powered with surround sound speakers!

Pros:
  • Very affordable
  • Great cloth pads
  • Light
Cons:
  • Fragile cable
  • Slightly muffled surround sound audio

Logitech has been in the audio business for quite some time now and the 981-000536 G430 is one of their cheapest yet most effective gaming headsets they have ever released. When you want an ergonomic headset minus paying a lot for large pads and light alloy, you look to the Logitech 981-000536 G430. It does not use memory foam but rather high-grade soft cloth on the earpads and the headband – which makes wearing it feel like a pillow on your upper head. Its speakers are powered with 7.1 surround sound but they only do decent quality. The microphone isn’t half-bad either. If you prefer ergonomics more than audiophile-like sound quality, then the Logitech 981-000536 G430 is the best choice.

Best Audio Quality

Affordable ergonomic and comfortable gaming headsets usually sacrifice the audio quality in exchange for a more comfortable touch hence the low price. Yet, the RUNMUS Gaming Headset exceeds expectations by not just providing an ergonomic design but also the best audio quality on this list.

Pros:
  • Affordable
  • Top-tier surround sound
  • Clear microphone
Cons:
  • Thin cable
  • Mic adjustment struggles

The RUNMUS Gaming Headset is a fan favorite in the budget gaming community. This is all mainly because of its simultaneous delivery of clear sound design and comfortable feel. Not only does it look and hear good, but it even includes a customizable 50mm driver for each speaker – for that clearer and more accurate sound settings based on your preferences. Gamers prefer using this on shooting games but it makes a great headset too for casual and singleplayer games.

Best High-End

If you can’t trust cheap ergonomic headsets, there’s always the more expensive ones that guarantee first-class comfort. Meet the 2nd Generation beyerdynamic MMX 300; a beautiful gaming headset where class means heavenly ergonomics and audiophile-quality sounds.

Pros:
  • Soft earpads
  • Good surround sound
  • Beautiful appearance
Cons:
  • Very expensive
  • More on theater than competitve

The beyerdynamic MMX 300 is definitely heavy for the wallet but is airy as a feather when worn. The MMX 300 specializes in comfort that only audiophiles prefer. And if you want an entry-level audiophile gaming headset, then the beyerdynamic MMX 300 is the best choice. The specs are as follows based on their product page: Closed stereo headset, compatible with all gaming consoles, headphone frequency response of 5 – 35,000 Hz, excellent intelligibility of speech due to high-quality microphone capsule and nominal sound pressure level of 96 dB.

Lightest Gaming Headset

Furbished with fabric mesh, memory foam and a lightweight frame, the NUBWO N20 is your ticket to ergonomic headset paradise. It does not cost much but the ergonomics of the NUBWO N20 is incomparable versus anything else in its price range. And if you want to swap your headset that makes you feel like your head would come off any second, then the NUBWO N20 is your solution.

Pros:
  • Memory foam earpads
  • Extremely lightweight
  • Very affordable
Cons:
  • Fragile design
  • A bit too simplistic

The NUBWO N20 isn’t that well-known but those who do know how much this baby can do. It is arguable one of the most comfortable budget gaming headsets ever made. The NUBWO N20 does not just deliver good stereo sounds – it provides sound ergonomics too. By that, I mean the comfortability of this headset can rival an audiophile’s mid-range headphones. The cups and headband are rotatable and finished with memory foam along with the fabric mesh coating. The overall weight is very light too. Oh, and the noise-canceling microphone is detachable too.

What We Would Buy

All of these gaming headsets are good, but if you want that one specific product that does it all, it’s the HyperX Cloud Alpha. Not only does it feel good to the ears, but it sounds good too. If you want something more affordable yet very valuable, you choose the Logitech 981-000541 G230. Need something more enticing with the audio quality, that’s what the RUNMUS Gaming Headset is best at. How about a gaming headset that pays for itself because of sheer sound design and ergonomic build? Well, that is why the beyerdynamic MMX 300 exists. And if you like to get one of the lightest gaming headsets ever, you buy the NUBWO N20
