The entry-level A10 headset is a no-frill gaming headset that’s cheap but never lacks in quality.
One of the best bang-for-the-buck gaming headsets around, Astro 10 is discord-certified and boasts solid sound quality. The only drawback is that it’s just a stereo headset.
You can’t really complain given just how much better the Astro A10 is than other headsets within its price range.
At its price point, a gaming headset has to be excellent and wireless or be one of the best-wired headsets around to warrant consideration.
The HyperX Cloud Revolver is more of the latter.
Fitted with a durable steel frame and premium leatherette for its ear cushions, the detachable noise-canceling microphone and studio-grade sound quality of the HyperX Cloud Revolver makes it easier to sacrifice the wire if you’re getting something as solid as it is in return, especially for its price.
Built like a tank, the Logitech G533 can take extended hours of beating and gaming sessions like a champ and walk away none the worse.
The best part about this Logitech gaming headset isn’t only about durability and the features that all professional gamers need in a headset.
This includes discord certification, 7.1 surround sound, prog-rade wireless technology, and comfortable, plush-ear cushions that are topped off with some of the nicest built-in microphones around.
These features ensure that you hear your opponents better, just as well as your teammates can pick up your voice easily.
Stylish, light, reasonably priced, and excellent all-around, the Logitech G533 is easily one of the best gaming headsets for discord available today.
They’re bulky, awkward-looking, and can be pretty hard to adjust to for a headset that doesn’t have any physical limitations such as wires, but if you’re willing to look past that. You can adapt to it; the Razer Kraken X Ultralight is hard to beat.
Razer Kraken X Ultralight is very easy to set up, fitted with generous padding at its ear cushions. An excellent build quality makes wearing these huge cans quite comfortable.
Plus, despite the large size, this gaming headset is actually quite portable.
A near-perfect microphone and solid surround sound quality await anyone who can live with the sheer size of these things.
What is it with HyperX and creating the workhorses of gaming headsets?
HyperX Cloud Alpha and its dual-chamber drivers are one of the best in its class and price range. Sure, it’s only got 2.1 stereo sound. Still, it’s top-notch and is arguably better than the more flawed surround sound of more expensive headsets.
While the HyperX Cloud Alpha definitely could use some improvements, anything better than it will be significantly more expensive as well.
What do you get when you forget about all that flashy design and focus on making a solid gaming headset with the excellent build quality, topped off with punchy bass and an overall sleek design?
You get the NUBWO U3 gaming headset.
The NUBWO U3 gaming headset’s neutral black finish stands in stark contrast to its flashier siblings. But, then again, those siblings are also more expensive as well.
If you’re planning on taking gaming seriously and want something that you can wear for hours without any noticeable strain, the NUBWO U3 gaming headset is definitely a good choice, thanks to its ergonomic features.
If you’re looking for a slim and sleek daily driver that gets the job done, the cheapest headset from the SteelSeries Arctis lineup should be right up your alley.
Costing a fraction of the price of the Arctis 5 and Arctis 7, as well as other Arctis variants, the SteelSeries Arctis 3 gets near-top marks for its build and sound quality, stylish design, and a microphone that’s surprisingly a lot better than you’d expect for a gaming headset at its price point.
The SteelSeries Arctis 3 may not be the “best” at anything in its class, but it does everything well enough to be a solid all-around choice.
Considered one of the best budget gaming headsets around, the HyperX Cloud Stinger is a workhorse of a pair of cans.
Boasting good comfort and decent sound, as well as stylish looks, the HyperX Cloud Stinger has everything that you can expect from a pair of gaming headsets at its price point and then some.
Considering just how much more you’d have to spend to see a noticeable step up from the HyperX Cloud Stinger, this is a no-brainer of a purchase for those who are on a budget.
Arguably the go-to gaming cans for those who are willing to spend more for premium quality gaming headsets, the Razer Kraken is definitely near the top in its class, if not at the very top of it.
While it does look enormous, the Razer Kraken is relatively lightweight.
Plus, the soft, breathable pads mean that you can wear a pair for hours before you feel that they’re even there.
Not that you’d bother feeling for them anyway, what with the surround sound setting the stage for one of the best at-home audio, immersive experiences.
Perhaps the only caveat to the Razer Kraken is its game-ish aesthetic and the fact that others are just as good, if not slightly better than it is at the same price point or lower.
If you want everything that the Razer Kraken can do, but in a more sleek and stylish package, buy the SteelSeries Arctis Pro. That’s it.
The SteelSeries Arctis Pro pretty much does everything that the Razer Kraken can, only that it is much, much prettier.
If you’re willing to splurge, the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless is pretty much endgame as far as gaming headsets go.
There you have it. The best discord-certified gaming headsets available out there.
As promised, we listed down everything, from the cheap and affordable to the premium and expensive, as well as anything else in between.
Regardless of your needs and wants, there’s bound to be a gaming headset on our list that’s the right fit for you.
