If you're willing to pay a bit more to get the best-of-the-best when it comes to wireless gaming headsets, the SteelSeries Arctis 7+ is well worth the investment. It uses a USB-C dongle to connect to your PC or console and has a very impressive 30-hour battery life. And just 15 minutes of charging gives you 3 hours of play for quick matches with friends even if you forgot to charge the Arctis 7+ overnight.
It features 7.1CH virtual surround sound for PC and Xbox gaming as well as Tempest 3D for PS5, so you get an immersive experience no matter what you use to play. The boom mic doesn't detach, but it does retract up into the right ear cup when you don't want to use it, and it features noise-canceling tech to block out background noise when you're chatting with teammates.
And while this headset is on the heavier side at 422g (about 15oz), the steel and ski-goggle headband does a great job of evenly distributing weight for comfortable, long-term wear.
