At the upper end of this budget we have the MadCatz F.R.E.Q.5 although depending on where you look it may also be sold under the Cyborg brand name, yet aside from the name on the box, the headset remains the same on all technical levels. I chose this one because I have been personally using two of these for over a year now on both my own and my partners gaming rigs and it has easily been one the best headsets I’ve ever owned. It extremely durable, has a comfortable fit and some of the coolest styling on the market (at least in my opinion).
The sound quality is premium all the way and while it truly is an incredible stereo gaming headset with one of the best microphones I’ve used, it really packs a punch when listening to music or movies, it can be used via USB and 3.5mm thanks to modular cables and it can even be plugged into your smart phone for calls.
MadCatz have really put them selves in a good position this last couple of years, making some of the best gaming peripherals on the market and while a lot of attention may go to their keyboards and mice, I think the best they do is headsets, especially when it comes to their Tritton range.
It’s not cheap at £100, but you do get build quality, performance and style that is leaps and bounds ahead of anything else in our list today.
The FREQ5 is available from online retailers for around £100
