When it comes to picking the right peripherals for your system, it is safe to say that you are going to be spoilt for choice and regardless of your budget it will be hard to narrow down your choices for each component. While the keyboard and mouse options out there may be seemingly limitless, so too are the choices for audio equipment.

Today we are taking a quick look at five of the best headsets on the market for £100 or less (for our American friends that’s approx $150 at time of writing), hopefully offering something to suit many different budgets and while we do know of a few great headsets well above £100, even well above £200! They’re not often the play thing of your average consumer or gamer.

Budget is important, but so is performance and while I can’t admit to having tried every PC headset on the market, I have certainly seen more than a fair share of them. All the headsets I list in this article are ones that I have personally owned, tested and have written full reviews of here on eTeknix, so full review links will be provided. I’m not going to tell you these are the five best headsets on the market, these are my personal choices, if you think you know of a better headset for the same price range, by all means post it as a comment below and help others by sharing your advice in a constructive manner.

Were going to be looking specifically at PC headsets today and it doesn’t matter if you just want to game, watch movies in peace or Skype call your friends, I’m sure we have something here that will suit you. All prices were taken as approximate from Google Shopping and were correct at time of writing.

    You seem to have forgotten or ignored Creative’s HS-1200, a wi-fi headset with great sound, exceptional mic, macro-ish buttons (control skype, VLC, Winamp, Mumble etc by using the pre-configured buttons as hot-key commands) and after many years of almost 16h/day use so I can hear the PC while my missus watches TV, etc, mine is still working fine.
    The only negative is that it can be a little tight on your head {or maybe my head is just huge}.

      actually, I did state that all the headsets I’ve included have been personally reviewed by myself, I’m not going to be above myself and recommend products I have never tested personally :) I hope you can appreciate that, but thanks for the suggestion, keep em coming :)

        it’s fair that you should only review products that you (or a team or you) have personally tested, and I obviously missed the bit where you say that these are the best out of the ones you’ve tested… though if you’re going to use that qualifier you perhaps should list the ones that were not as good as those 5 so as not to discriminate against the untested headsets.
        Just a suggestion of course in the interest of fairness, openness and honesty – which I assume should be the basis of all journalism.

          Not really, anyone can get that list by filtering by price on Amazon lol. “Five best headsets and five other headsets that maybe ok for the same money” doesn’t really have the same ring to it. Was only intended to be some informal light Sunday reading that a conclusive master guide :)

          I may revisit the subject in a few months and take a more concise approach to it.

          • InkieSquid

            I’m really confused now, did you reply to the correct post? Are you really saying that there’s an Amazon filter to show only the headsets that you’ve used in the past? I looked, but I couldn’t find it.

          • Peter Donnell

            pre morning coffee reply ftw. I perceived what you said as just other headsets under £100 in general :D In that case it’s called “filter by price” lol. don’t ask me how I came to that answer though, I may as well have read someone elses comment :D

            Thanks for the feedback though.

    Razer, Logitech, and some other great brands were left out of this. Maybe do and update and write “Ten best pc headsets under 100″

    I’ve been using the Creative Fatal1ty headset for about 4 years now, about six months ago I had to get a new one as an incident while drinking left the right earphone cutting out when the cord wiggled. I think regular price it’s about fifty dollars and I have seen it for as little as twenty when on sale on newegg.

    At first I tried to replace it with a Corsair 1500, but upon receiving it the 50mm drives they advertised were more like mid volume tweeters. They had absolutely no mids or lows at all. I returned it and got another Fatal1ty. I also had a Logitech G35, I won in a contest playing World of Tanks, it sounded alright but for the price it still wasn’t as good sound wise and was only USB, so I sold it on Ebay.

    The new Tesoro Kυνέη Angel A1 7.1, now available, is coming at the price of 70/80€. You could think about a review.
    Thanks for the hard work !
