  1. I sort of wish this cheap gaming headset top 5 was done in a more similar format to the relatively similar mouse one you did, going over what you think is the best cheap one, and some honorable mentions that are more expensive. Maybe you could do a “What Is The Best Affordable Gaming Headset?” sort of thing as a “remake” of sorts for this list at some point. Not like, deleting all the stuff on this list to write a replacement for everything said, rather write a new post of best affordable gaming headsets. Hope what I said makes sense in case you might confuse it, don’t want confusions and having to explain myself in a new post later. It’d be interesting to see. Not right away, but it’s at least an idea to do at some point, y’know?

    • From what I’ve heard about them, they’ve got a very high quality sound and having those programmable buttons is very nice. I’d say that they’d be worth the price for someone looking for a headset for around that price point!
