If you’ve ever entertained the thought of following in your favorite player’s footsteps and getting into competitive gaming, you know that it takes a lot of work to get good, and an even greater rig to compete with professionals.
However, if you’re just looking for a headset that’ll help you get better at the game, check out our top choices for the best gaming headsets for PUBG.
1. Yao “lionkk” Hao
When you are LionKK and competing in the biggest PUBG tournament in history, every second matters. The smallest mistakes during the marathon that is a best-of-99 match can cost you the first place prize.
So you want equipment that will help you make quick decisions during key moments in the game. In other words, it’s better to rely on your peripherals than your slow human reflexes. And what does LionKK use? The HyperX Cloud Flight wireless headset made by Kingston Digital, the makers of reliable and durable memory products.
2. Samu “Sambty” Kauppinen
The HyperX Cloud Revolver S is a heavily updated version of the already capable HyperX Cloud Revolver, the long-time favorite headset among the world’s best PUBG players.
With the Cloud Revolver S, Kingston has created a premium-feeling headset that’s as comfortable to wear as it is durable — and highly upgradeable for pros who want to tweak at every element of their gear.
3. Jord “ibiza” Van Geldere
Using the Bose QuietComfort 20i Headphones during a tournament session is a player’s way to embrace their competitive spirit, and it starts with a focus on sound.

4.Jim “jeemzz” Eliassen
The HyperX Cloud II is a great pair of gaming headphones for those looking to take their game up a notch.
It boasts a large 53mm drivers offering rich sound quality, with comfortable leather-padded memory foam ear cups that keep you focused on the task at hand.
The microphone ensures your commands and responses are transmitted clearly and accurately to your teammates, while the gold-plated USB connector ensures you have minimal connectivity issues when gaming online.
5. Park “Loki” Jung-young
Park “Loki” Jung-young is a South Korean professional PUBG player and the star player of Gen.G.
The Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 is designed to have an open-back design that enables passive noise isolation and a customizable headband. This means users can hear what’s going on around them, and ensure that the chat module of their headset doesn’t break or snap in half while they are gaming.
The stereo drivers embedded in the earcups are able to produce more sound pressure level (SPL) than most headsets available today, allowing them to fill the auditory void that most gamers experience when gaming on laptops.
