Best PS5 Headsets

Our PlayStation headsets offer amazing gaming comfort and rich features. They're the perfect companion for gaming solo or with friends.

Let's face it, the right headset can make or break your gaming experience. Whether you're immersed in an epic RPG or coordinating with your squad in a fast-paced shooter, the quality of your audio can be the difference between victory and defeat. And when it comes to the PS5, you need a headset that can keep up with the console's impressive capabilities.

It's time to upgrade your console gaming. We've got the best gaming headsets for PS5. Let's go through some of the features that you're looking for in a great PS5 headset and how we satisfy them.

Wireless Freedom

The freedom to move around without being tethered to your console is a game-changer. You don't want wires across your living room, right? One of the key aspects of a top-tier PS5 headset is wireless capability. Our Arctis Nova 7P Wireless offers stellar wireless capabilities — powerful Simultaneous Wireless that allows you to both connect to the console through 2.4GHz and another device via Bluetooth. So you can be on a Discord voice chat with your buddies on the phone (if you don't already use Discord chat on the PS5).

And no stress about the battery either. With a hefty 38-hour battery and a fast charging feature, you can get 6 hours of use after just 15 minutes with the USB-C cable. Keep yourself untethered, longer.

The Importance of Sound Quality

When it comes to sound, not all headsets are created equal. The PS5's 3D Tempest AudioTech offers a level of spatial audio that's truly next-gen. To make the most of this feature, you need a headset with excellent sound quality. Again, the Arctis Nova 7P Wireless is a great choice here, with the High Fidelity Drivers, the sound quality is excellent.

However, if you really value sound quality above else, you should consider the Arctis Nova Pro Wireless which has Premium Hi-Res Capable Drivers that elevate the experience even further. This is the best headset SteelSeries has to offer, so you know you'll get your money's worth, particularly if you're looking for the best headset for the PS5.

The Comfort Factor

Comfort is another crucial factor to consider. Long gaming sessions can become a pain (literally) if your headset doesn't have comfortable ear cushions. Our headsets are designed with this in mind, ensuring you can game for hours without discomfort.

Every Nova gaming headset comes with the ComfortMAX system, designed to fit your headset ideally to your head. With four different points of adjustability, that's easy. The earcups spread out to fit over the head laterally, they can extend further, they rotate sideways, and you can also adjust the overhead band, which is stretchy and soft on your head.

It literally takes seconds to get comfortable with any Nova headset, so there's no going wrong here no matter which one you select.

Noise Cancelling and Microphone Quality

A good headset isn't just about hearing; it's also about being heard. That's where the microphone comes in. The best PS5 headsets come with dual noise-cancelling microphones, ensuring your voice comes through loud and clear, even in the heat of battle.

The ClearCast Gen 2 mic reduces background noise by up to 25dB, making you that much clearer. Additionally, with the PS5, you have access to SideTone, which you can adjust with a button on the headset. This will control how much you can hear yourself, which is sometimes important feedback in voice chat.

Additionally, a special feature on the Arctis Nova Pro Wireless is noise cancellation. It's perfect for tuning out outside sounds from housemates, the whirrs of the air conditioning, or street noises. You can even control the degree of the noise cancellation with buttons on the headset.

When playing solo, easily retract the mic completely, for a sleeker look.

Easy Access Controls and More

When you're in the middle of a game, the last thing you want is to fumble with your headset controls. That's why our PS5 headsets feature easy-access controls, allowing you to adjust volume, mix game-versus-chat audio, and more without missing a beat.

Easily adjust the volume of the headset, balance how much of your voice you hear with Sidetone, mute your mic quickly, or answer calls using Bluetooth all with the touch of a button. All accessible within reach. Additionally, when you mute your mic, you'll see a red dot on it, reminding you of the status.

Whether you're a fan of the 3.5mm jack or prefer the convenience of wireless headsets, there's a SteelSeries headset for you. And with features like surround sound, noise cancelling, and excellent audio quality, you can be sure you're getting a pair of headphones that will enhance your gaming experience.

So, whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, don't settle for less. Choose a headset that's designed with gamers in mind. Choose SteelSeries.
