All around you...
It’s that time of the generation where we start looking at our options for our new gaming we gonna get once the new consoles are out.
This time around Playstation 5 features 3D Audio, and we are sure you are looking for the best headphones that will definitely support this feature. There are a couple of requirements for the headphones to support 3D Audio but the list below should be compatible with either the wired or the wireless versions.
“On the PS5, you’ll be able to experience 3D Audio with the headphones that many of you already own, either through USB connection to the console, or by plugging your headphones into the DualSense wireless controller’s 3.5mm headset jack.”
With this out of the way, onto the list to see which are the best headphones you can get before the launch of the Playstation 5!
5 –Logitech G432 (Low End) (Wired) 49.99$
The Logitech G432 are among the best budget options if you are on a budget between 30-60$. The sound quality, in general, is great and surprisingly a bit over-emphasis in the bass range, and a consistent, though comparatively minor de-emphasis in the mids and highs. However, at the end of the day the sound quality, in general, is great and should be fine for casual music listening alongside tight Counter-Strike: Global Offensive matches.
Regarding this headset isolation, there’s nothing special about it, it features general noise isolation so you can expect to hear your kids scream and a dog barking.
The headphones come with 3.5MM Jack and a USB option in the box they will support 3D Audio via the 3.5mm jack.
4 – Hyper X Cloud 2 (Mid End) (Wired/Wireless variants) 79.99$
On the sound quality, the Cloud II delivers a balanced, punchy sound with its 53mm drivers. As someone who primarily listens through Arctis 7, I do enjoy it as its bass isn’t overbearing and the mids and highs have a warm, lite quality to them. These headphones do not feature good noise isolation. I can say that my Arctis 7 from 2017 have better noise isolation when compared to these Hyper X Cloud 2.
In terms of comfort this among the best of its price branch, personally, for me, Hyper X Cloud and Steelseries headphones have always been the best in terms of comfort throughout many hours of gaming.
One of the best parts of the Hyper X Cloud 2 is definitely the microphone, it is by far one of the best. This headphone has a wired and a wireless version in which you can pick both support 3D audio either via USB dongle or connecting directly to the controller.
3 – Razer BlackShark V2 (Mid End) (Wired) 109.99$
The Razer BlackShark V2 is one of the mid option tiers from the so famous Razer. Although it is a mid-tier option costing 100$ most of the time it is up there competing with Hyper X Cloud 2 in terms of sound and microphone quality.
The audio quality is there, like over-emphasized bass and a slight de-emphasis in the 3-6KHz range. However, unlike many gaming headsets, including a large portion of Razer’s own catalog, the effect is pretty slight here.
It comes with a 3.5mm jack and an optional USB for the PC gamer inside of you.
2- Steeelseries Artcis 7P (High End) (Wireless) 169.99$
Now we are coming to terms with the Steelseries Arctis 7P… All those out there who have previously worn any of the Arctis lineup will know that this is among the best of the best headphones in the market either wired or wireless variants.
Due to its headband, the comfort just one of the best for those who sit gaming may hours in a row. Regarding the sound quality, this headset derives from the Steelseries Arctis 7 which features an amazing range of sound from lows-to highs and an incredible bass for those big explosions in Warzone
The headset comes to the dongle which you will be able to put on one of the USB ports on the console. The price usually sits around 150-179$ being one of the priciest headsets available for the Playstation 5.
1- Playstation Pulse 3D Headphones (Wireless) 99.99$
It’s hard to pick the number 1 headset for the Playstation 5 but both Arctis 7P and Sony Pulse 3D have their own ideas and both use headbands to keep your comfortable while you gaming away. However, one advantage the Pulse 3D have, is the fact you can mix the sound between Party & Game at any given time using the physical buttons available on the headset.
The headset material quality is expected a bit below the Arctis 7p however if you are looking for a pair of headphones at around 100$ budget this is the one you should definitely get as we said above it supports the console out of the box and you can control the party and game sound directly from the headset, something that is indeed exclusive.
If you are looking exclusively to pair the console with these headphones goes for the Pulse 3D.
