The Best PS4 Gaming Headsets

The best wireless PS4 headset that we’ve reviewed so far is the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless. It’s a connectivity champion, supporting not only wireless gaming over its USB transmitter but also Bluetooth audio at the same time, so you can chat on your smartphone and game on your console simultaneously. The headphones are comfortable, well-built, and have a well-balanced sound that lends itself well not only to video games but movies and music too.

What sets them apart from other models is their unique base transmitter. It lets you EQ the headphones, mix game and chat audio, adjust the volume, and manage Bluetooth settings without having to do so on a PC. You also get two swappable batteries that provide about 15 hours of playtime each and conveniently charge in the USB base transmitter, which is very convenient.

Although they perform very well overall, they’re quite expensive. If you like the way they’re designed but don’t need all their active features, consider the SteelSeries Arctis 7 2019 Edition. You’ll have to customize them directly on the PC, but they still perform very well overall for a much lower price. That said, the Arctis Pro Wireless are more versatile since they support Bluetooth, so if they fit within your budget, they’re an excellent choice.

If you’re both a PS4 and a PC gamer and you’re looking for a headset that you can customize to your heart’s content, then get the Logitech G933. It doesn’t look or feel as premium as the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless, nor does it support Bluetooth, but it features 3 programmable buttons on the ear cups that you can map in the Logitech G Hub to trigger either PC-specific commands, like game macros, or more broad functions like EQ cycling that also work on the PS4. The newer Logitech G935headphones have improved audio quality, but have their microphone is worse and they don’t have as many connection options as the other Logitech, which come with an in-line mic and RCA cable for additional audio sources.

Get the Arctis Pro Wireless if you game mostly on PS4 and don’t want to need access to a PC to customize your headphones. However, if you’re also a PC gamer, you’ll want to get the Logitech G933 to gain access to their impressive customization options.
