Best Gaming Headset Under 100 Dollars

VersionTech G2000 Stereo Gaming Headset

If you are looking for style and substance, then you will be interested in the VersionTech G2000 headset. It is compatible with your PS4, your Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and you can also use it on your PC. You know the first thing I liked about this headset? The comfort. The soft memory-protein earmuff is very comfortable, and it allows you to play for extended periods without needing to take it off. The padding on the headrest is also very comfortable, and it fits all head shapes quite nicely.


VersionTech G2000 Stereo Gaming Headset

Here are some of the features:

  • 3.5mm jack & USB plug
  • Volume control & mute button
  • 3D stereo sound
  • Flip to mute microphone

The mic is omnidirectional. This means that the mic picks up sound from all directions. Basically, the mic really does not need to be right next to your mouth to pick up the sound.

If you want to use this headset on your PC, be sure to get the 3.5mm adapter. Usually, the headphone and sound inputs are separate. The adapter will allow you to get the full gaming experience.

But what about the USB connector? You plug it in to get those LED lights going and immerse yourself in the game!

The headset comes in blue and has LED lights on the exterior. The younger set really loves this feature.

You get a 45 day money back guarantee and a one year warranty.

This headset is great option for the price. One thing though, the headset does not work with the Xbox 360 or the PS3. I am sure you don't have that old stuff anyway, right?

Onikuma K-5 Gaming Headset

Onikuma K-5 Gaming Headset

The Onikuma K-5 Gaming Headset is similar to the VersionTech. First of all you can use them on the same gaming systems, including PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. 

Our friends at Onikuma has done everyone a solid.  They actually include the splitter, so there's really nothing else to buy and you can game right away on all of your systems.

It also has a USB connector to activate those LED lights that are on the outside of the headphone. Comfort is also the name of the game here, as the memory foam ear cups keep it light.

In addition to being comfortable, the headset has a deep bass, so you will be totally immersed in your game.

It features a noise cancelling microphone, so your team can hear you clearly. When you are about to ambush those zombies, you will need to have that clear communication right? The mic is made of soft rubber, so it bends...this is good in case you rage quit and throw the headset, the mic probably will not break.

We do not recommend throwing the headset, though.

Here are some of the features:

  • Weight: 19oz
  • Volume control & mute button
  • 7.1 surround sound effect
  • Flip to mute microphone

As far as pricing goes the Onikuma headset is around $27, so it is very affordable. 

The K-5 headset comes in blue or black.

The manufacturer offers a two-year money back guarantee.

HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro Gaming Headset

The HyperX Cloud Alpha is the third gaming headset that we will talk about. I will start off by saying that this is a little more expensive than the other two headsets mentioned above. This one comes in at around $99, so it is just under the $100 threshold for this post.

This one has the best sound due to the dual chambers. They separate the bass from the mids and highs, which allow optimal tuning for cleaner, smoother sound. This also means less distortion than the other headsets at this price point.

The Cloud Alpha is multi-platform. It will work on PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One. It also works with VR systems with a 3.5mm jack.

HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro Gaming Headset

It has a tough, detachable braided cable, so when you store it or travel with it, you can keep the wire nice and safe. The noise-cancellation microphone is also detachable. This works if you just want to use them as a headphone to listen to music on your mobile device. 

Here are some of the features:

  • Durable aluminum frame
  • Large earcups with soft leatherette
  • Expanded headband
  • In-line audio control

This are a no-nonsense pair of headphones, so they do not light up like the other two we are featuring.

If you are serious about your gaming, this is the one to get. You also might consider this one if you do not need a headset that does not light up, and you may want to use them to listen to music.

The Cloud Alpha Pro comes with a warranty and free customer support.

So there you have it. We feel that these are the best gaming headphones under 100 dollars. If you are on a budget, these will do nicely. You can just click on the links and it will take you do their direct Amazon page.
