Razer Hammerhead Headset

The Razer Hammerhead headset is a Bluetooth headset that works with everything from your smartphone to your gaming laptop. These metal earbuds come with a magnetic clip that fits securely to your shirt or work-out gear, inline remote, excellent battery life, and surprisingly good sound for a wireless headset.

Why They’ll Love It: “I was impressed with the Razer Hammerhead BT; they quickly become my go-to headphones while working out, and I even used them for some of my mobile gaming. Also, the comfort made them a great option for when I just wanted to listen to music while doing some work in the office. For the price range, these are some of the best feeling, best sounding headphones I have tried. They are headphones I would happily buy for personal use, and would recommend to anyone who does not mind the “gamer look” and loves the quality Razer offers. Razer Hammerhead BT headset is a fantastic offering to the segment, and I look forward to seeing what Razer comes out next in the realm of audio.”

Sennheiser 4.40BT Wirelesses Headset

The Sennheiser 4.40BT Wireless Headset is light and durable, comes with a promised 25 hours of battery life, optional headphone 2.5mm to 3.5mm headphone jack and cable, and excellent sound quality.

Why They’ll Love It: “The bass has solid kick and the mids and highs punch pretty well, especially using the aptX codec or an amplifier. The battery life is absolutely fantastic, and were a major convincing point for someone like myself who is constantly on the move and is often neglectful when charging devices. Lightweight and comfy—for the most part—they also fold up for easy storage in a bag or purse. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better pair of headphones that offer great sound, great battery life, and easy use in this price range.”

Plantronics RIG 800LX Gaming Headset

While offering a comfortable experience due to its unique design, an efficient battery life, and an impressive frequency range, the major stand-out feature of the Plantronics RIG 800LX is the inclusion of a Dolby Atmos product code that will not only enhance this headset, but all of your previous and future gaming headsets as well as a permanent audio choice for any compatible piece of content.

Why They’ll Love It: “The RIG 800LX is a powerful new competitor in the headset market for users to consider.
