I sympathize with this! I have a huge head too, and the HyperX Cloud barely fits me on the largest setting haha. Let’s see then. Hmm.

The new Steelseries Arctis 3/5 has quite an adjustable fit. They fit me with a little bit of clearance. HyperX’s cheaper Stinger headset fits me on the middle setting…6 clicks out of 12. That one’s had more clearance on my head than any other gaming headset actually, although it bugs me that the mic is not detachable.

Gaming headsets tend to be on the small side compared to headphones, probably because a lot of them also want to work for kids.

I have to wear my DT770’s on the second-largest size. I’ve found that Bose, Sony, and Sennheiser’s sets tend to fit me well with extra adjustment range. Audio Technica’s too. But more often than not, I’m cranking them all the way out.

I hope that points you in the right direction! Thanks for reading, and good luck…it’s tough to be a headphone fan with a big head, haha.
