Regardless, charging yours new phone or wearing in-ear headphones for the morning commute, most of us use wireless gadgets. But you might want to think twice when it comes to your gaming headset. You can use a wired headset with almost any device as long as it has a headphone jack. You can also hear your surroundings and your allies clearly without worrying about charging or compatibility issues.
Fortunately, there are quite a few headsets that fit the bill – no matter what console, computer or device you play on. If you want to go wireless, check out our guide to the best wireless gaming headsets. For all your other gaming accessory needs and semi-term needs, be sure to check out our other guides, like our picks for the best gaming keyboard, best gaming mouse, and best gamepad!
Updated September 2022: We’ve adjusted the prices, added the Logitech G735, and replaced the old picks with SteelSeries Arctis Nova 1 and Nova 3.
