The best value Switch headset: Turtle Beach Recon 70N

First choice for a reason

If you’re looking for a decent headset but don’t fancy wading through the many options on offer, the safest bet you’ll find is the Turtle Beach Recon 70N.

Turtle Beach is the leader in gaming headsets, and the Recon 70 is its flagship entry-level offering. It features comfortable ear cushions, great sound quality, a flip-up mic and a durable build. If you want a great headset for £30, this is the one.

Another great value headset for Switch: Corsair HS35

A choice for everyone

Not a fan of the Turtle Beach budget option? Check out the Corsair HS35 Stereo, another fantastic value Switch headset. Available in a range of colours, it is comfortable, durable and high-quality.

The HS35 has everything you could ever need in a headset, all for a brilliant price: the microphone is detachable, there’s an on-ear volume control and mute button, and the 50 mm neodymium speaker drivers deliver fantastic sound.

The best mid-range Switch headset: HyperX Cloud Alpha

Make the step up

If you can afford to spend a bit more on your Switch headset, we love the HyperX Cloud Alpha. It’s available in three colours and offers fantastic quality and comfort.

The Cloud Alpha features custom 50 mm dual chamber drivers, which reduce distortion and ensure smoother, clearer sound from your games. The long-lasting aluminium frame and memory foam-lined headband ensure complete durability and comfort.

The best wireless Switch headset: SteelSeries Arctis 1

To the 21st century!

The SteelSeries Arctis 1 is one of the very best wireless gaming headsets for under £100, with epic sound fidelity, comfort and microphone quality for a top price.

The Arctis 1 connects to the Switch via a compact USB-C dongle, which ensures a super-fast connection at all times. The headset delivers high-quality audio and features a detachable ClearCast microphone, 20-hour battery life and on-ear audio controls.

The best headset to match your Switch: PDP LVL40

Complete the set

One look at the LVL40 wired headset will show you that it’s the perfect choice for Switch players with the blue and red console, but there’s more to it than just the complementary colour scheme.

The LVL40 is super lightweight and more compact than the majority of other headsets around right now, making it perfect for portable play. You can also flip the mic up to instantly mute it, which is handy.

If you prefer a headset with a detachable mic, we recommend the PowerA Fusion.

The best Switch headset for kids: PowerA Pikachu headset

For the Pokémon fans

Got kids in the house who like to play Switch? Don’t risk your expensive wireless headset – instead, get them their own Pikachu-themed one from PowerA!

Despite only costing £20, this headset features breathable memory foam for incredible comfort, 50 mm speaker drivers for great fidelity, and a flexible design which makes it easy to store and transport.

You can even get a matching controller and carry case!
