HWM+HardwareZone.com Tech Awards 2019: Editor's Choice - Part 1

By Team HardwareZone - 11 Mar 2019

Best Gaming Headset

Best Gaming Headset

If clothes make the man, then experience makes the game - and audio will always be an integral part of that. We cast our eyes and ears toward all the surround-sound capable gaming headsets that 2018 had to offer, judging them on key criteria such as audio quality, build quality, and comfort. After all, we could be wearing these for hours straight!

This year’s top candidates not only excelled in the above, but also introduced nifty features that aim to take the gaming experience as we know it to new heights.

 

Nominees:

  • ASUS ROG Strix Fusion 700
  • Alienware Wireless Gaming Headset (AW988)
  • Razer Nari Ultimate
  • SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless Headset

 

And the winner is...

Alienware AW988

After nearly a decade since their last headset, Alienware returns with a product that simply blows past skeptical expectations. Its robust build is matched to supremely comfortable ear pads and cushioning, and the rich bass tone makes it perfect for the everyday gamer. You don’t have to baby it, you don’t have to excessively tinker with it, and once it’s on – oh, you’ll be going on and on.
