If you play games for long hours into the night, you need a reliable gaming headset that won’t drop you when you are engaged in battle at 12am with that level 12 boss. So we went in search of two of the best headsets in SA right now that offer great bang for your buck.
At number 1 we have the Roccat Kave XTD headset. It features robust design coming in at just 335 grams. For a full 5.1 digital sound experience, this is an amazing piece of kit. The ear cushion cut off external sound very well and the ergonomic headband cushion is snug. It features a fully equipped remote, which has an in-built multi-channel sound card and allows you to pair your Smartphone to it via Bluetooth. Grab this pair from Loot.co.za for R1150.
The number 2 spot belongs to the Steelseries Siberia V3. Steel Series have been making the Siberia gaming headset in various forms for a few years now, with each new model bringing you better quality, both in sound and build, coming in at 281 grams.
This particular headset was never one we would go for, because previous versions felt really uncomfortable. Overall sound quality is clear, with very little distortion, unless you really crank it up. The unit does come with software as well, so you can fiddle with the equaliser settings or select presets.
The SteelSeries Siberia V3 Gaming headset is available from Takealot.com for R1499 and includes free delivery.
