If you are a pro PC gamer and you want to give your best in every match you play, then you should seriously consider investing in a good gaming setup. Except for the machine that can run high-end games, you will need the right tools like a good mouse, keyboard, monitor and a headset. While monitor, mouse and keyboard play a considerable role, crystal clear audio can help you feel the actual soundstage and improve your performance.  Before buying, you must look for audio quality, comfort, mic quality, soundstage and other features. In this article, we've compiled the list of four high-end corded gaming headsets that are made for pro gamers. These headsets are available on Amazon and are ranked based on their listed features.

Steelseries Arctis 5

The Arctis 5 from Steelseries is the company's one of the most popular gaming headsets.

The company says it to have one of the best mics for gaming, which is a Discord-certified ClearCast mic, that is claimed to deliver studio-quality voice clarity and also has background noise cancellation.
