Having one of the top-end PS4 gaming headsets doesn't necessarily mean its the best overall performer. If sound, noise-canceling, battery life, comfort, and immersive experience is what you're looking for, then its not always about price. Having the best PS4 headset is about the bost overall experience, and if you're reading this, then you'll either be upgrading your current headset or looking at an entry point to your first set of gaming headphones.
Our top PS4 headset: Razer Kraken (Tournament Edition)
If you can afford to shell out just below $100 for a gaming headset, the Razer Kraken Tournament Edition is the best performer for PS4 on the market right now. This headset delivers excellent bass, which is excellent for explosive sounds in games such as CoD: Modern Warfare, and thanks to the 5.1 audio, which comes as standard, you'll find the sound is already tuned to suit games like Apex Legends. With Battle Royale titles, its essential to know where the sound is coming from, and the Kraken TE does just that. This headset is also compatible with PC, and using the THX audio component will step your sound up another notch. Cooler cushioning and a revamped headband in comparison to older models give this an incredible level of comfort. The microphone is clear, which delivers a great experience when online with friends. Single-player titles are also perfectly playable, providing crisp dialogue which is only outperformed by the more expensive headsets on the market. You might also consider the Razer Kraken Pro V2, but the Tournament Edition still comes out on top for audio.
Turtle Beach Stealth 700
Turtle Beach has been around for a while now, and they've established themselves as one of the leaders in gaming headsets. Comfort combines with quality with their latest range of headsets, and they come cable-free as standard. The Stealth 700 comes equipped with noise-canceling as standard, and the comfort with these cans is incredible when you've been in-game wearing them for several hours.
There is a wealth of features that the 700's come equipped with, allowing players to tweak the audio to amplify sounds such as gunfire and footsteps for better immersion. Bluetooth makes these completely wireless, and also allows the use of the TB app to stream calls and music directly from your mobile (if you want to). The mic is vibrant and clear, and these come in just above the $100 mark.
Sony PlayStation Wireless Platinum
Sony has moved up the scale as a significant player in the gaming headset space, and it makes sense for the brand behind PS4 to adopt a great gaming headset. Performance is fantastic, and the price point of under $100 is very tempting too. The Gold version of these cans is also a very close comparison and comes in at around $40 less if the price is an issue, although the sound is slightly compromised. PS4 audio profiles which can be tweaked for each game is a decent feature, and the 7.1 surround is breathtaking. The battery life is brilliant, lasting even longer than that of your PS4 controller. You can also use this headset with PSVR, which means having the VR headset over the top of these headphones will provide an excellent level of comfort.
Razer Nari Ultimate
Our final PS4 gaming headset has one feature that outmatches all of the above, and it has a built-in rumble! Although it can easily be disabled, the headset will vibrate when more substantial sound sources come into your game. This adds a level of immersion that you'd never imagined possible, its what the guys at Razer like to call Hypersense technology. This wireless headset is extremely comfortable and comes with a battery that'll last 20 hours without the vibration enabled, with 8 hours having the feature turned on. Pricing comes in near the $200 mark, which is a little higher than the rest of our favorites. Sound quality is excellent, but not as good as some of the cheaper models we've mentioned, but hey, it comes with an exciting haptic gimmick!
