This gaming headphone is not only one of the best in terms of sound quality but features like flip to mute, extra soft earcups, and the clear mic output defines its USP at this price point.

The drawback, however, is its 40mm driver that doesn’t make it for ultra value for money gaming headphone. Nevertheless, the headphone needs to be charged if you want to use the mic, which might be a big deal for some.

For new gamers, yes, Cooler Master does have their headphones line-ups aswell. And they are superb. Cooler Master’s MH630 is one of them. It offers you Hi-Fi Sound (as they market), and the best part of this headphone is the omnidirectional mic which translates to having crystal clear sound quality with high noise cancellation at the front end.

The ear cushions are comfortable if you are gaming for a long duration, and the volume controls work smoothly with the scroll button given.

The Logitech G233 is the next on our list. If you have noticed, Logitech has even been into budget gaming headphones under 5000 Rs segment, and well, these headphones are worth the penny invested. The G233 is not the exception, with decent sound quality, comfortable earcups, superb design, and excellent noise isolation.

The downsides of G233 are its not-so-great sound outputs while listening to music, and by far this headphone doesn’t have noise cancellation. It’s noise isolation, but, does the work pretty well – not many complaints there. However, better options are available with competitive pricing – think again.

Now, the JBL Quantum series was brought to the market on the thought of delivering high-quality “gaming headphones” by JBL. However, I think a lot of it has been absent in these headphones. Don’t get me wrong, these headphones are one of the best, but not “The Best” you can get in the market today.

The Quantum 300 offer you a decent output with Quantum Surround and a huge cable wire for convenience. But, on the downside, JBL has quite disappointed me on this, on comfort levels, these headphones aren’t that great either, build quality looks okayish. Overall, if you’re a long JBL fan, this is for you. Others, you got options in the market.

Positive
  • Very Long Cable
  • Braided Wire
  • Mic is great
Negatives
  • Not that comfortable to wear
  • Poor built quality

Before Buying A Gaming Headphone

Buying a headphone is easy; buying a gaming headphone is tough.

Think Intelligent, Think Gamer.

The toughest part of buying a gaming headphone in the market is knowing the sound quality of a headphone, the cable length if you’re a PC gamer, and maybe the comfortability aspect of gaming headphones. 

While most of these things are solved in the article already, I hope you consider somethings before finalizing “your” best gaming headphones under 5000 Rs. To do this, you need to think logically, think like a gamer. 

What’s Important in a gaming headphone? Let’s find out. 

Sound Quality

Do you know gamers don’t require low bass headphones? No? Because while playing FPS games like PUBG or CS:GO or maybe Call Of Duty, you need to have those punchy bass outputs from your headphones to hear the enemy footsteps and also to know where the bullets are coming from.

But, you definitely don’t want something like this….

So Before buying, make sure the bass is high, treble is balanced, and the best could be having an option to adjust these things with high drivers inside the headphones. 

Comfortability

Buying heavy headphones with a super noise-canceling feature on a gaming headphone?

Probably, stick some tapes with speakers on your head.

(Not really………?!)

Listen gamers, noise-canceling works really well for focusing while gaming, but too much can cause heating issues which again may lead to severe damage to your ears. You really don’t want that!

A lightweight headphone with soft and comfortable earcups is the best gaming headphones that you would see on most pro players using. Listen to Pros, you noob!

Build Quality

Trust me when I say this, most of the so-called beginner gamers make this mistake while buying a gaming headphone. Ever wondered why a five hundred wireless headphone is suddenly called the best gaming headphone? Don’t buy crappy headphones.

Girl Gamers, this ain’t a gaming headphone!

Buy from a decent brand, and well build headphones, and with at least 12 months warranty time. Check the material type used in the headphone, is the wire braided? (it’s best for most of us), does it have soft ear cushions? it is heavy, lightweight, all these things are important because trust me you are going to wear it for long, and most of the time for gaming.

Check Reviews

What’s the best way to find if the headphone is comfortable, without actually wearing it? How do you know if it has high or low bass? How do you know if the headphone is worth the money? I know you’re smart. And I know you are a gamer.

But, some people don’t look at the reviews. That’s happening so a lot of times, and I could see that while researching for this topic on the web. Crappy headphones and without reviews were recommended on a lot of websites suggesting for best gaming headphones under 5000 Rs. Don’t do that mistake.

Read reviews, Act your moves. (Okay, that’s dumb).

So what makes you a PRO gamer while selecting the gaming headphones under 5000 Rs?

  • Check for Best Sound Quality
