[SOLVED] Looking for the ultimate wireless gaming headset 21/22


May 30, 2020
Hi everyone,

I plan on getting a new headset within the next 12 months and already started looking (so I'm also considering upcoming models). I'm not quite sure if a headset which ticks all the boxes actually exists (at least I didn't find one yet), so I'm asking for community input.
I will use the it for both gaming / multimedia and conferencing for work. I'm willing to pay up to 500€ and hope to find the following features:

  • Wireless (>8h battery life)
  • Good build quality
  • Hi-res audio
  • 7.1 with an ability to switch to stereo
  • Good noise isolation, preferably ANC
  • Good mic that doesn't pick up a lot of background noise

So far the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless comes closest, but as some reviews note, its noise isolation ain't as good as I'd like it to be, so currently I'm still looking. Any hints are greatly appreciated 😊
It's pretty hard to beat the Arctis pro if you want to maintain wireless.
