Game better with these great headsets for the PS4

If there's anything I've learned in all my years of gaming, it's that headsets can make or break your gaming experience. Not only do you want good sound quality when searching for the best PS4 headsets, but you also want a comfortable fit and a microphone that won't make you want to rip your hair out. We did all the research for you to make sure you get the most out of your money without having to go through trial and error. Now, if you've upgraded to a PS5, we have a few more recommendations for the best PS5 headsets.

Long battery life

Astro A50 Wireless Gen 4

Staff Pick

With Dolby 7.1 surround sound and a built-in MixAmp DAC, the A50 produces some of the finest sounds you can find in a gaming headset. Featuring 15 hours of battery life, this headset charges back up in its magnetic cradle. As far as wireless is concerned, it connects to the PS4 through a base station using a 5GHz wireless transmitter.

$274 at Amazon

Best budget option

Razer Kraken X Ultralight

This is easily one of the most affordable options available. It features 7.1 surround sound capability when used on PC and sports a comfortable, lightweight headband perfect for those who wear glasses. The microphone doesn't retract like its Kraken brethren, but it can bend out of the way.

$40 at Amazon

Entry-level

Astro Gaming A10 For PS4

Astro's entry-level wired headset is one of its most compelling. Made from "damage resistant polycarbonate," the A10 should be able to take a beating in your gaming bag. You're not getting much in the way of fancy features, but you do get a solid, well-made, great-sounding headset with an inline volume remote, so you never need to take your eye off the game.

Next level streaming

Astro Gaming A40 TR Wired Headset + MixAmp Pro TR

The MixAmp Pro TR bundle is perfect for any streamer. It allows you to control your game and voice audio and customize your EQ settings for the best gaming or streaming experience. You get the same durable structure with the A40 as you do with Astro's A10. The A50 mod kit for the noise-canceling ear cushions is compatible with this headset as well. One thing the A40 offers that others don't are customizable speaker tags you can remove and switch out for different looks.

$250 at Amazon

Hi-Res Audio certified

SteelSeries Arctis Pro + GameDAC Wired Gaming Headset

SteelSeries' latest headset is the company's approach to the "Pro" market, taking on the likes of Turtle Beach, Razer, and ASTRO Gaming at the very high end. The skiband design remains, so it's super comfortable. With the included GameDAC powered by an ESS Saber with an included amplifier, you get gaming's first Hi-Res Audio-certified headset.

$250 at Amazon

Designed for VR

Sony Gold Wireless

Designed with PlayStation VR in mind, the ear cushions are huge, soft, and completely cover the ears, while the whole thing is nice and light, so you can comfortably play for extended periods. The 7.1 surround sound and internal noise-canceling microphone provide excellent sound quality. If you want a first-party offering that ticks every box, the Gold Wireless is a solid choice.

$140 at Amazon

Go wireless

SteelSeries Arctis 7 Wireless

Thanks to its innovative "ski-band" design, which suspends the headset using a taut fabric band, the Arctis 7 is one of the comfiest headsets around. Excellent weight distribution lets you wear the Arctis 7 for long periods without getting fatigued, and it easily hooks up to your PS4 or PC via the included USB dongle.

$130 at Amazon

For professionals

Razer Thresher for PS4

The feature-packed Thresher for PS4 from Razer delivers crisp, clear Dolby 7.1 audio for an incredible, immersive experience that will let you pick up the most subtle details. It provides lag-free audio and voice — via fully retractable mic — at distances up to 12 meters (40 feet) and is designed to be worn by pro-gamers for long periods.

$146 at Amazon

Affordable

####Turtle Beach Ear Force Recon For PS4

The Ear Force Recon comes with a high-sensitivity boom mic you can detach from the headset when you don't want to use it. There are in-line controls on the cord for you to control the volume and mic settings easily. You can even use these headphones with your PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Mac, and mobile devices!

$25 at Amazon

Mid-range

Razer Kraken Lightweight Headset

It's not the cheapest headset, but it won't cost hundreds like other alternatives. The Razer Kraken is a mid-range headset that offers a retractable mic and lightweight aluminum headband for long gaming sessions, which makes sense considering it was designed with esports athletes in mind.

$73 at Amazon

Find the headset that's best for you

Finding the right gaming headset for PS4 can be a little difficult, regardless if you're looking for something to accompany the PS4 or PS4 Pro. If you don't have reasonable sound quality and a decent microphone, then you might as well throw your money in the garbage instead of buying that off-brand headset you picked up from the corner store. There are plenty of great options available that can fit your budget and have amazing quality for roughly the same price as your average pair, even if you're looking at the best wireless PS4 headsets.

If you don't want to break the bank and still want exceptional audio quality, the Razer Kraken X is the way to go. It has all the necessary features for a comfortable and quality gaming experience and a price that fits most household budgets.

However, if money is of no issue to you and you're looking to get the best of the best, pick up the Astro A50 Wireless. With the Astro A50, you'll be basking in the complete surround sound that will help you pinpoint the footfalls of your next victim before they're close enough to see you.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
