There's a decent range here, from the no-frills designs to the more stylish ones, depending on if you're buying for yourself or getting a gift for a younger family member. HyperX headsets are a great choice for gamers who want high-quality products from a trusted brand without costing an arm and a leg.

They offer a balanced sound profile, a comfortable design, and a simple user interface. Another brand that competes in the same price range is Turtle Beach, which also has some solid options. However, it really depends on your preference. Turtle Beach headsets tend to emphasize bass more and have more features on their headsets, but that also means more buttons to deal with when you are wearing them.

I prefer simplicity over complexity, so I would choose HyperX over Turtle Beach in this comparison. Both brands feature in our top PC headsets and top Xbox headsets lists, though, so I suggest giving those a read if you wish to do more research. 

Which I would choose

The HyperX CloudX is a headset that has earned a reputation for being one of the best gaming headsets on the market thanks to its high-quality performance, comfort, and durability at a low price. The updated model, the HyperX Cloud II Gun Metal, improves on the original with features such as virtual 7.1 surround sound, a detachable noise-canceling microphone, and a sleek metal design.

Now that this headset is on sale, it’s an even better deal than before, and I think it’s the best product that HyperX has to offer in this sale. If you are looking for a gaming headset that will impress you with its sound, comfort, and value, you can’t go wrong with the HyperX Cloud II Gun Metal.
