TL:DR; What wireless headset do you recommend (obviously works well with Linux)?

Just finished upgrading my gaming rig and monitor. Got everything up and running (EndeavourOS and the usual gaming things). The last piece to upgrade all my stuff is a new headset. I would like it to be wireless (if possible), works well in Linux (if that’s even a “problem”), lightweight, good quality audio and microphone (lots of Discord talking). I’m simply not up to speed as to “what’s a good gaming headset”. What do you guys have/recommend?

    I was looking into these but it mentions software a lot in the reviews as in you must use the software to ensure good audio quality. Is this true? How long have you had them?

    I was also looking into the Logitech Astro A30

      I’ve had mine for at least 5 years, probably more. You don’t need any software on Linux, it’s picked up as a normal USB audio device: SteelSeries ApS SteelSeries Arctis 7 I’m no audiophile, but audio quality is great. I had the Logitech G930 before and I like this better. The one USB device actually presents 2 audio devices to the computer because it has this neat dial that lets you mix your game sound and chat sounds right on the headset.

      I have the Arctis 7 as well and the default EQ sounds just fine, although I do prefer the Bass Boost. You can run the software inside a Windows VM, passthrough the USB dongle and configure all your settings as well. They get saved into the headset and work just fine in Linux without Linux native software.

        Oh I didn’t know it saves settings to the headset itself. That would come in handy.
