A lot of PC gamers focus on buying the best PC games or the latest monitors to fulfill their gaming needs. But, when it comes to sound, they usually end up buying an inferior quality headset or nothing at all. This is because PC gaming headsets are optional. Besides, many of these gamers are not aware of the immersive and top quality sound that these headsets are capable of providing.
That’s why we decided to test a couple of PC gaming headsets that are currently available in the market. We used as many as 10 popular headsets and tested them on various parameters including ease of use, sound quality and of course overall performance. However, after personally assessing each of these headsets, we found that Razer ManO’War and SteelSeries Arctis Pro were definitely the winners. So, if you are a gamer who is looking for the best sound quality and enhanced experience, while playing your favorite PC games, then check out our review to find out more.
Why Razer ManO’War?
Well, if you need an easy or quick to set up PC gaming headset that also offers exceptional surround sound, then Razer ManO’War is undoubtedly a great choice.
Although it is a bit bulky, but you will love the fact that it comes with no wires attached (i.e. a wireless interface). Some of the other features of the headset include 7.1 software based surround sound, 14m range with an extender and (12m without one), multi-color lighting. One of the nicest aspects of this headset is that is very easy and quick to set up.
User-friendly and Features Galore
The headset is very user-friendly and you’ll love its soft leather based ear cups for the comfort that they offer throughout your gaming sessions. In fact, we used them for extended hours and never experienced any kind of discomfort while wearing them. Another attractive thing about the headset is its RGB lighting feature. You can use the Razer Synapse to customize the lighting in case you want to. The one feature that you will definitely appreciate about Razer ManO’War is its 7.1 surround sound capability. It offers an amazing immersive sound quality that one is unlikely to find in other headsets. The headset’s battery life can be easily stretched to around 14 hours.
Overall, we found the headset impressive both in terms of sound and looks.
SteelSeries Arctis Pro

The SteelSeries Arctis Pro was yet another headset that met all our performance, sound and quality criteria. The headset offers value for money and exceptional performance.
