To better enjoy an immersive gaming experience, high quality sound is important. And you will likely need a dedicated gaming headset for this since most gaming consoles and monitors these days do not have built-in speakers that can do your favorite PC games justice.

If you are on a tight budget, however, you are unlikely to spend a lot for the top-caliber headphones on the market. Good thing there are gaming headsets that retail for less than $100, but still deliver a high-end experience. We have listed seven of the best affordable gaming headphones below.
