That’s a pretty controversial title, isn’t it? The top gaming headsets OF ALL TIME. Can we really pick a handful of gaming headsets of all time?

Actually, it’s not all that difficult. That’s because there really aren’t all that many choices to begin with. Headsets are different from headphones. Headphones don’t have mics on them. And then we also need to discount all those headsets used by telemarketers.

We’re talking about gaming headsets. And when you realize that the history of gaming headsets started just fairly recently, it’s actually not all that hard to pick the winners in this category.

Having said that, here are our best choices:

1. Astro A50.

Dubbing [easyazon_link asin=”B0091WIOJ2″ locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”vicdor-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]ASTRO Gaming A50 Wireless Headset[/easyazon_link] as the number 1 gaming headset of all time is a no-brainer. It was released in 2012, and two years is a long time in the tech industry. In the Kotaku survey conducted in February of 2014 (and involving more than 11,200 respondents) the A50 bested all the rest of the pack at number one with 32.3% of the votes. The second highest only got 18.69% of the votes.

So what is so special about the Astro A50? A lot, apparently. It does everything it’s supposed to do, which is to give you the best sound for gaming. This meant the explosions sound great and you could tell where the sounds were coming from. You could also speak easily enough, and you’ll be understood by those listening to you. It is very easy to set up and use, and it’s also very comfy.

There are also lots of little things about the Astro A50 that you will appreciate. The mic mutes automatically when you flip it up, and it unmutes when it’s flipped down. The volume is very easy to fine tune, and the sound is trapped in the ear cup so you don’t bother other people in the room. It’s a wireless headset, but you get a whole bunch of wires anyway so that you can play on any system. It even looks good enough so you don’t look stupid when you play.

2. Turtle Beach PX22

Who says a great headset has to be expensive? [easyazon_link asin=”B00E5UHSYW” locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”vicdor-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]The Turtle Beach PX22[/easyazon_link] came out in May 2013, and today it’s still a contender for best bang for the buck headset. It is extremely cheap, but you can only say that about the price. Cheap doesn’t describe the features. It has some pretty impressive features. Once you accept the fact that it’s a wired system, you’ll be extremely happy with this one.

For one, it sounds great. It is very comfortable and light, and it breathes well too. The noise isolation is solid and the mic works well enough. It’s also compatible with the PC and with gaming consoles. With the PX22, you get so much with so little money. In fact, this is the de facto gaming headset of everyone on a budget.

3. Creative SoundBlaster Recon 3D

[easyazon_link asin=”B005KAK2FI” locale=”US” new_window=”default” nofollow=”default” tag=”vicdor-20″ add_to_cart=”default” cloaking=”default” localization=”default” popups=”default”]The Soundblaster Recon 3D[/easyazon_link] came out back in 2011 and garnered tons of fantastic reviews. It’s still quite popular today. The sound quality never fails even when you turn up the volume, and the mic cancels out the noise so only your voice carries. Multi-platform, comfy, and reasonably priced, it is a great choice as well.

As you can see, it’s not all about the headsets with the latest technology. You also have to consider the price and value for money. Then you also need to check out the comfort level when you’re wearing them, and you can’t really find the info on this in the manufacturer’s brochures. So when you are new to gaming and you want to start with the best accessories, start with these three options for the top gaming headsets of all time and you’ll never regret it.
