The 3 Best Budget Gaming Headsets Under 25$

A few years ago, finding a decent gaming headset under $100 was tough. At best, you’d have to sacrifice tons of features and sound quality for an uncomfortable hunk of junk.

But now there are all kinds of headsets for gamers on a budget, and many of them aren’t that bad—much better than what used to be available, that’s for sure. You just have to know where to look, what to look for, and be willing to settle for less than perfect.

What to Look for in a Gaming Headset

A headset is a pair of headphones with a built-in microphone. There are no practical differences between a gaming headset and a regular headset except physical design and appearance. However, some features are more important than others.

Over-ear vs. on-ear vs. in-ear: For the most part, over-ear headsets are the only ones worth buying at this price level. On-ear headsets tend to cost more due to their refined designs, and in-ear headsets won’t have the sound or microphone quality that you need when gaming. Learn more about Headphones Terms And Considerations.

Physical weight :

A massive headset can feel good… five minutes at a time. Any longer than that and you’ll be dying to take them off, either because they’re pushing down on your ears or they’re tiring out your neck. Light and comfortable is what you want, especially for long gaming sessions.

USB vs. 3.5mm: 

USB headsets include their own sound cards, which means they’re less prone to radio frequency interference, but 3.5mm headsets are more versatile and better for console gaming. For PC gaming, go with USB whenever possible.

Stereo vs. surround sound:

 Surround sound in gaming headsets is a sham. Not only do most so-called “surround sound headsets” lack the driver count to produce true surround sound, but surround sound is meant to take advantage of room acoustics—something that doesn’t happen in a headset.

Wired vs. wireless: 

You won’t find good wireless gaming headsets for under $25. There’s a reason why wireless headphones are more expensive than wired headphones: it’s hard to produce a set that sounds good.

Build quality: 

At this price, don’t expect anything to feel great in your hands or on your head. Ear pads won’t feel luxurious, metal components will be rare, plastic components won’t be robust, and cables will feel flimsy. Expect these headsets to last 6-12 months, or slightly longer if you can take good care of them.

Brand names: 

You won’t find any Razer, SteelSeries, Corsair, or Sennheiser products this far down the barrel.

So is it possible to find a gaming headset that fits all of the criteria above without spending more than $25? Not really, but you can get close enough. It depends on what you’re willing to compromise on.

Here are the best cheap gaming headsets we’ve found.
