Below we have included some excellent options.

1SteelSeries Arctis 7P Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 354g | Drivers: 40mm | Compatibility: PS5, PS4, PC, Mobile, Switch
Key features:
  • The white and blue design is right at home with the PS5
  • Excellent comfort
  • 24-hour battery life
  • Lossless 2.4GHz wireless for no latency

Released specifically for Sony’s new console, the Arctis 7P by SteelSeries grabs their flagship functionality and brings it even closer to people who don’t want to spend hundreds on a headset. You get the signature comfort and sound quality, as well as the wireless performance, for a fraction of the price.

The design of the Arctis 7P is pretty neat. You have the suspension headband that adds a lot of comfort and adjustability, as well as those thick, comfy earcups. And the headset itself comes in a white and blue color combination that’s just perfect for Sony’s new console.

As far as the sound quality goes, we have zero complaints. You can hear every detail crystal clear, and that applies for positional accuracy too, which is critical for multiplayer gaming. SteelSeries have also included their retractable, Discord-certified ClearCast microphone, which is one of the best microphones on a headset out there.

Last but not least, to eliminate any kind of latency while gaming, you’ve got a 2.4GHz wireless connectivity, and it’s lossless, too. Overall, this is an excellent headset for anyone looking to get great wireless performance and excellent sound quality, at a reasonable price.

2Astro A50

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 380g | Drivers: 40mm | Compatibility: PS5, PS4, PC
Key features:
  • Included base station for charging
  • Flip-to-mute microphone
  • Built-in MixAmp
  • Compatibility with Astro Command Center for adjustments
  • Dolby Audio for a cinematic, 3D gaming experience

Astro’s A50 is one of their best selling headsets, and for good reason. It comes with pretty much everything a good wireless headset should come, and then some, and even at a rather expensive price, it’s still a great pick for many – especially with the PS5 compatibility.

First things first, the A50 is a closed-back pair of headphones that comes with what Astro calls ASTRO Audio V2 tuning. This means that the sound signature is geared towards gaming instead of music, and you’ll get excellent positional accuracy in many games – especially critical for multiplayer gaming.

Next up, Astro includes their charging station, which lets you put the headset on and have it charge automatically. It also functions as a USB sound card and allows you to connect to Astro’s Command Center software.

The microphone quality is pretty great, and you have flip-to-mute functionality, something that comes in handy in a variety of situations. This makes the A50 the perfect headset for people wanting to stream their PS5 gaming experience.

Unfortunately, the A50 does come at a (pretty high) price, but if you’re looking for a no-compromise headset that delivers on every possible front, this is it.

3Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 380g | Drivers: 50mm | Compatibility: PS5, PS4, PC, Mobile, Switch
Key features:
  • Commands on the right earcup for convenience
  • Excellent comfort
  • Superhuman Hearing boosts the audio quality and positional accuracy
  • Flip-to-mute microphone
  • 15-hour battery life

Considering that Turtle Beach announced the Stealth 600 would be compatible with the PS5, that instantly made it an excellent pick for everyone picking up the new console. It comes with a lot of nice features, and a price that puts it within reach for just about anyone.

To begin with, the sound quality when gaming is pretty great. Thanks to what Turtle Beach calls Superhuman Hearing, you can hear every possible detail when gaming, which is something that significantly helps with immersion. Add to this the Gen 2 flip-to-mute functionality, and this becomes a great choice for multiplayer gaming, too.

Another thing we must give praise to Turtle Beach for is comfort, as this is an incredibly comfortable headset. If you’re going to be gaming for hours at a time, it’s certainly one to consider. The plush earcups and the thick padding really do make an impact. And the ear cups are soft and breathable, and come with a glasses relief system, too.

And what also makes an impact is the battery life – at over 15 hours, you won’t get that ‘Battery low’ notification while gaming, that’s for sure. This is an overall great pick for anyone looking for the best PS5 wireless headset.  

4SteelSeries Arctis 9 Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 371g | Drivers: 40mm | Compatibility: PS5, PS4, PC, Mobile, Switch, VR
Key features:
  • Extremely comfortable design
  • Discord-certified ClearCast microphone
  • Lossless, lag-free 2.4GHz wireless, plus Bluetooth
  • Over 20 hours of battery life
  • ChatMix control dial

SteelSeries has a lot of great headsets, but if you want flagship-level features, what you should be looking at is the Arctis 9 Wireless. This headset comes with great drivers, an excellent mic, and best of all, the signature SteelSeries comfort.

First things first, even though only 40mm, the drivers inside the Arctis 9 Wireless get you excellent sound quality. This is what SteelSeries calls their “signature Arctis sound”, and when it comes to a gaming headset, they’re really good. Positional accuracy is excellent, and you can even use them for listening to music with pretty good results.

The other big thing is comfort. SteelSeries’ Arctis headsets come with their suspension headband design, as well as plush, thick earcups that make them comfortable for extended gaming sessions. They’re also lightweight, which adds to the comfort.

Wireless performance is pretty much perfect, with 2.4GHz wireless for gaming and no latency, and Bluetooth for connecting to your smartphone – you can have calls while you’re gaming without any issues. To add to this, the over 20 hours of battery life make the Arctis 9 Wireless an even better pick. Oh, and did we mention the Discord-certified mic? Yeah, that too.

5PlayStation Pulse 3D

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: Unknown | Drivers: Unknown | Compatibility: PS5, PS4
Key features:
  • USB Type-C charging
  • 3D audio with compatible titles
  • Stunning, modern design
  • Suspension headband and thick earcups for excellent comfort
  • Easily accessible controls add a lot of convenience

What could very well be a crucial accessory for the new PS5, Sony’s Pulse 3D headset is another great pick for people who will be gaming on the console. It comes with a couple of nifty features that you won’t get with any other headset, which makes it a great choice.

To get the big things out of the way, the sound quality of the Pulse 3D headset is great. You have an immersive experience that makes you feel like you’re in the center of the game itself, and dual noise-canceling microphones for crystal clear communication. 3D Audio is the hallmark feature, and with compatible games on the PS5, it will make your experience as immersive as they come.

The design is also stunning, and Sony made sure it feels right at home next to the PlayStation 5 – you get the same colorway, and the same smooth, elegant lines. And even the easy access controls don’t stand out too much. They’re rather discrete but work very well.

With up to 12 hours of battery life and an included 3.5mm cable, so you can use it wired, it’s not hard to see why the Pulse 3D headset is definitely going to be a crowd favorite.  

6Audeze Penrose Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back, Planar Magnetic | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 320g | Drivers: 100mm | Compatibility: PS5, PS4, PC, Mac, Mobile, Switch
Key features:
  • Memory foam on the earcups and headband for comfort
  • Detachable microphone
  • Audeze Mobius 100mm planar magnetic drivers
  • Low latency connection, plus Bluetooth
  • Convenient controls

If you know who Audeze is, we wouldn’t blame you for wondering what they’re doing in the world of gaming. But quite frankly, being made for console gaming, the Penrose is actually a great pick from an unexpected brand.

The headset comes with what Audeze is well known for – planar magnetic drivers. They’re the same as the drivers included in the higher end Mobius headset, and they’re 100mm. The sound quality you get from them is really, really good, and everything is crystal clear. The same goes for the microphone as well, which is very, very good.

What we also loved was comfort. Audeze has added memory foam to the headband and the earcups, and this is one of the best headsets for extended gaming sessions. You can wear them for hours at a time with no discomfort whatsoever, which is neat.

The connectivity is 2.4GHz, so you have no latency, but if you want to, you can opt for Bluetooth to connect with your smartphone and receive calls, too. And you also get easy-to-find controls on the left earcup, so everything is within reach. A great headset for anyone who wants the absolute best sound quality.  

7SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 252g | Drivers: 40mm | Compatibility: PS5, PS4, PC, Mobile, Switch
Key features:
  • Very affordable
  • Detachable microphone, Discord-certified
  • Steel reinforced headband
  • Thick, comfortable earcups for great comfort
  • Excellent sound quality considering the price

Finding a good wireless headset when you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars might be a challenge, but it’s one SteelSeries have welcomed with open arms, and dealt with really well. We’re talking about their Arctis 1 Wireless headset, which is their most budget option.

On the outside, they look rather simple. Even though they do away with the suspended headband design of their more expensive siblings, the thick headband cushion is still comfortable. And so are the earcups, which come with the thick, breathable padding SteelSeries are known for. Overall comfort? A+.

The sound quality is pretty good, too. While not on the level of something like the Arctis 9, the sound quality and positional accuracy you get with the Arctis 1 are pretty good. Everything is well balanced, and we would even recommend these for casual music listening, too. The Discord-certified, detachable ClearCast microphone makes an appearance here, and only adds to the value of the Arctis 1 Wireless.

Add to this the over 24 hours of battery life you can expect from the Arctis 1 Wireless, and they instantly become the best possible option if you’re on a budget, but don’t want to cut too many corners.

8PlayStation Platinum Wireless Headset

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 318g | Drivers: 50mm | Compatibility: PS5, PS4, PS VR, PS Vita, PC, Mac, Mobile
Key features:
  • 3D audio for extra immersion
  • Dual microphones for communication
  • 7.1 virtual surround
  • Included travel pouch

Even though it was made for their previous generation console, the PS4, Sony’s PlayStation Platinum Wireless Headset is still an excellent choice for people who don’t need to have the latest and greatest. It performs admirably in a variety of situations and comes with nifty features that few other headsets offer.

One of those features is 3D Audio, which takes the immersive experience of a headset with a good soundstage, and turns that up to 11. You’ll hear things from all directions, including above and below you, and you’ll get that feeling like you’re in the center of the room. You can also download Sony’s companion app, and get even more audio modes that are tailor-made by developers, for their games.

When it comes to communication, you’re looking at dual microphones that pick up your voice really well, yet eliminate any kind of background noise. The mic does sound good, we have to give it to Sony for that.

The comfort levels are pretty good, too, with a suspended headband and thick, plush ear cups. Add to this the long battery life, and included travel pouch, and the headset becomes an excellent choice.

9Razer BlackShark V2 Pro

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 320g | Drivers: 50mm | Compatibility: PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox, Mobile
Key features:
  • Triforce Titanium drivers for excellent sound
  • Thick headband and earcups for added comfort
  • Detachable microphone
  • THX 7.1 surround sound
  • Wired and wireless functionality

Razer’s BlackShark V2 Pro is one of their latest and greatest products, but it has quickly become a bestseller and for many reasons. It checks all the boxes for a great product, and when compared to the competition, the price is pretty reasonable, too.

On the outside, you get a subtle, all-black design that looks nice. The earcups and the headband have more than plenty of padding, and this does make a massive difference when you’re in for the long haul. The BlackShark V2 Pro is among the most comfortable picks for extended gaming sessions. And the gel-infused cushions make sure your ears don’t get too hot, which is a nice addition.

The sound quality is excellent, thanks to Razer’s Triforce Titanium 50mm drivers. Everything is crystal clear, and the THX 7.1 virtual surround sound adds a level of immersion not found on many other headsets. The microphone has noise-canceling and is detachable, too, so when you want to relax and play a single-player game, you can just get it out of the way.

Overall, if you want a simple headset that cuts no corners in terms of sound quality and comfort, then you should certainly consider the BlackShark V2 Pro.

10Astro A20 Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 318g | Drivers: 40mm | Compatibility: PS5, PS4, PC, Mac, Mobile, Switch
Key features:
  • ASTRO Audio V2 tuning
  • Plush and comfortable earcup design
  • 2.4GHz wireless connectivity for zero-latency while gaming
  • Very clear, flip-to-mute microphone
  • Battery life of over 15 hours

You’ve probably heard of Astro’s flagship headsets, but the truth is, they’re just too expensive for many. If you agree, you should give the A20 Wireless a chance. It’s also made by Astro but cuts down on the extra functionality that not everyone needs from the higher-end models, and cuts down on the price, too.

On the outside, the design is definitely Astro – sharp lines, modern aesthetics, and a white, blue and black colorway that’s made to work well with the PS5. The comfort is pretty good, too, thanks to the use of lightweight materials and cloth on the ear cushions. This also helps regulate the temperature of your ears and will ensure those hot summer months aren’t too much of a problem.

The sound quality is great, and you have what’s known as the ASTRO Audio V2 tuning. This results in a smooth, neutral sound and detailed soundscapes that help make the experience very immersive. The sound is overall relaxed, and a pleasure to listen to.

Pair this with over 15 hours of battery life, a 45 feet wireless range, and a high-quality flip-to-mute microphone, and the Astro A20 Wireless becomes an excellent budget choice.

11Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: Unknown | Drivers: 50mm | Compatibility: PS5, PS4, PC, Mobile, Switch
Key features:
  • 50mm Nanoclear drivers for excellent sound quality
  • Upgraded 20-hour battery
  • Excellent comfort
  • Beefy, metal-reinforced design for durability
  • Gen 2 flip-to-mute microphone

If you’re targeting the midrange with your budget, and you’re looking at Turtle Beach, you will find their Stealth 700 Gen 2 calling your name. This is a wireless headset with a lot going for it, and it comes at a reasonable price that you can actually afford.

First things first, you’ve got their Nanoclear drivers, which are 50mm, and get you some of the clearest, most immersive sound on a headset. The sound is incredibly well balanced, and it’s obvious Turtle Beach spent a lot of time on nailing down the positional accuracy – it’s perfect. Zero complaints in terms of sound quality. The microphone is also great, it’s their Gen 2 flip-to-mute microphone that eliminates outside noise and conceals into the housing when you aren’t using it.

Furthermore, the levels of comfort are simply unmatched. The thick padding on the cushions makes sure the headset is just as comfortable after an hour of gaming as it is after ten, it’s that good. The headband has plenty of padding, too, so no complaints in that department either.

When you factor in the 20-hour battery life, as well as the rock-solid wireless connection, this becomes an excellent choice for Sony’s new console.

12HyperX Cloud Stinger Wireless

Specifications:
Acoustic Design: Closed Back | Wireless: Yes | Weight: 270g | Drivers: 50mm | Compatibility: PS5, PS4, PC
Key features:
  • Affordable price
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Comfortable design with memory foam headband and earcups
  • Up to 40 feet wireless range
  • Swivel-to-mute, noise-canceling microphone

HyperX’s headset lineup has been constantly expanding, and they’ve got a vast variety of options with comfort being their utmost priority. The Cloud Stinger Wireless is no exception, coming in at a very wallet-friendly price, with the signature comfort and a few other great features.

On the outside, the headset looks pretty simple. All-black plastic and a blue ring around the earcups to indicate this is the PlayStation-oriented version. The microphone can be flipped up to get it out of the way, but that’s about it. There is sufficient padding on the earcups and the headband, which means that HyperX’s signature comfort makes an appearance even with the wallet-friendly models.

The sound quality is pretty good, but not impressive. There is no virtual immersion here, but even without it, you do get good positional accuracy and an excellent gaming experience overall. A solid budget pick for the PS5.

Final words

Whichever PS5 wireless headset you go for from the list above, you won’t make a mistake. It’s just a matter of picking the one that suits your budget and needs best. In the end, you’ll get a great headset for Sony’s new next-gen console.
