Redgear Cloak is the best gaming headphone under 1000 rs. – 8.4
The Redgear Cloak is an incredible pair of gaming headphones for the price. The catch is that it exceeds the budget, occasionally. What you get is definitely worth it.
When it comes to design the Redgear Cloak has the most simple yet unique design among the rest of the headsets on this list. Distinct and stylish. The earcups themselves are huge and at the back, you get to see the Redgear logo which is lit up using RGB LEDs which looks quite cool. Now the RGB LEDs can’t be changed to a specific colour but they can be switched on or off.
Connected to the right earcup you get the boom microphone which looks simple as well. The quality is good when used in a quiet room. The earcups are comfortable and provide a stable fit. The build quality is great, the body is mainly plastic but feels durable and strong.
There are a couple of metal bands that support the headband below which improves its structure and also looks nice. The cable quality is good, you get two 3.5mm jacks one for the mic and the other for audio. You may have to get a splitter if you need them for smartphone gaming. The USB cable also extends from this cable which is used to control the RGB LEDs.
Finally, the sound quality is truly amazing. They use 50mm drivers that produce great sound and give great positional accuracy. Though, you don’t get surround sound. But given the budget, we don’t expect it. Additionally, if you plan on using them for music listening then you can do that too. However, the bass might not be enough to satisfy you if you like bass-heavy music.
Cosmic Byte GS410 – 8.0
The former best gaming headphones for this price point. It still is a good buy but it always had a few drawbacks.
The Cosmic Byte offers a truly budget-friendly option of a gaming headset. In terms of overall performance, it fares well. The biggest complaint that we have about these gaming headphones is the build quality. Yes, just like the others it is too made out of plastic but it doesn’t feel as durable.
You get a feel of its low-quality as soon as you hold them. And this intensifies when you do the headband stretch test. It feels as if it might just break into two parts. So if you get them, use them carefully and prevent putting too much stress on them.
These headsets are compatible with every device that has a 3.5mm aux-in port. It uses a single 3.5mm audio jack for the mic and audio as well. Meaning that you needn’t get a splitter-connector when using them for your smartphone gaming. Along the cable, you get the volume control housing which looks like a smaller version of a computer mouse. This housing is also where the quick mute toggle is located.
The headphones come neatly packaged with a couple of documents inside. The chrome coloured bits at the back of the earcups are plastic as well. The inside of the headband, the part which rests on your head, is covered with the same cushion that is used for the earcups. These are well soft and densely packed, providing great comfort. The mic quality is usable for streamers and taking calls if you wish to do so.
Take a look at the Best True Wireless or TWS earbuds.
Kotion Each GS410 – 8.0
The Kotion Each GS410 is essentially the same headphone as the Cosmic Byte GS410. They are manufactured by the same company i.e. Kotion Each.
The only visual difference between the Kotion Each GS410 and the Cosmic Byte GS410 is the logo that is printed on the back of the earcups and either end of the headband. When it comes to sound quality, build quality and other such factors, they are alike.
They are usually priced the same with minimal differences. Regardless of which you pick you should know that you’re getting the same model. Now the one you pick should depend on which is available and which is priced lower.
Havit H2032d – 7.8
The Havit H2032d has wonderful and simple design.
Starting with the build quality, the Havit H2032d’s body is entirely made of plastic. Though, the feel of this plastic is slightly better than the GS410. The headband doesn’t have any significant padding which is unfortunate. The earcups do have a memory foam cushion which improves the seal and provides better comfort. They are dense enough that your ears won’t reach the inside of the earcups which is great.
Being made out of plastic, they are truly lightweight and you can game with them for hours. The microphone extends out the back of the left earcup. The mic is non-detachable but extends and retracts in an L-shaped pattern.
And the recording quality is decent enough. The left earcup is also where the cable is attached and the end is split into 3 connector – a USB for the LED, and two 3.5mm jacks (one for the mic and the other for audio).
The earpieces use 40mm drivers to deliver sound. Audio quality on this headset is as expected, standard. They are a fairly new product (launched in November 2020) in this price segment so you may want to give them a try.
Screem Gamegod – 7.6
Another new headset has recently shown up for the budget gaming segment. The Screem Gamegod is similar in terms of performance to the Havit H2032d.
The Screem Gamegod, unlike others on this list, does not offer RGB lighting. But even though it’s been removed the materials used for the body of the headset is adequate. The earpieces use 50 mm, neodymium drivers. The in-game positional accuracy is good enough to be used.
As for the headband, the quality of the headband is better than the earcups. It is completely padded all around and it sits quite comfortably on your head. The padding used for the earcups is thicker and softer which is great. They are dense enough that your ears won’t be making contact with the inside of the earcups.
The headset is lightweight and uses a single 3.5mm audio jack for audio and mic. So you can conveniently use them for your smartphone provided you have a 3.5mm aux-in port. Along the cable, you’ll also find the volume controls. The microphone or recording quality is usable. You can also use them for casual music listening as they produce decent bass and lower-mids. So you always have that option.
What should you expect from Budget Gaming Headsets/Headphones?
If you don’t intend to spend a lot of money on headphones specifically for gaming that we understand. We have all been there. The one thing we must realise is that, with a limited budget, the number of options drop-down and so does the quality. That doesn’t mean you can’t find a great pair of headphones for gaming or casual listening.
However, it does mean that we must set out expectations right. As with all budget-friendly products, they intend to provide you with the essential and sacrifice over-the-top, not-so-necessary features. So we go in search of devices keeping that in mind.
There are some truly great budget-friendly headphones and products in general that can even rival some midrange to high-end products. And when you find them, it makes you glad you choose them.
ElephantBoat EL01 – The ElephantBoast EL01 are a decent enough pair of gaming headphones. It has all the necessary features that you’d want in a pair of budget gaming headsets except for surround sound. Mic volume and mute control, boom mic and much more. The build, however, feels flimsy.
