Going wireless is cheaper than ever, but if you’re going to spend hours wearing a headset coordinating with your squad in a game—or maybe sitting through your tenth Zoom meeting of the day—it needs to be comfortable, sound crisp, and pick up your voice clearly. Over the past three years, we’ve tested dozens of headset and headphones to pull together this list of the best wireless gaming headsets for PCs, Mac, Android phones, iPhone, Nintendo Switch (all models), Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4. We’ll continue testing new models over time, so bookmark this page to see our future picks.

Updated October 2021: We included new info about Xbox Series X/S and PS5 compatibility and added in the Logitech Pro X. We’ve also begun a new round of testing on recent headsets to add to the mix. Eric Ravenscraft, Jeffrey Van Camp, and Jess Grey contributed to headset testing for this guide.
