Whether you’re a hardcore PC gamer or a console baby, eventually the people you live with will probably get annoyed at the various bleeps, bloops, and occasional gunfire of your video games. Maybe you’ve already got a great pair of headphones and a webcam with a mic to cover your multiplayer needs, but sometimes it’s nice to have it all in one place. That’s where gaming headsets come in.
These headsets offer an easy, all-in-one solution to your game audio needs, usually packing in a microphone, decent sound, and lengthy cords to suit just about any gaming setup. As with any kind of tech, there are quite a few gaming headsets on the market, and many aren’t great.
Here’s what you should look for when shopping for a gaming headset.
1. Your platform:
The very first thing is to be considered the platform. Headsets come with different platforms. Is it for XBOX, PC, Mac and other devices. Such headsets are also available which support various platforms. They have both a USB and a 3.5 mm jack which supports almost all the instruments.
2. Sound Quality:
This is one of the important while choosing a headset. Driver size matters a lot for these. 40 mm driver or higher is selected from for that. Excellent sound quality will help you to listen correctly. It helps you to distinguish between cheap headsets. It should also provide with good “bass” which will make you feel amazing while playing games.
With some excellent sound quality though, it should also support noise cancellation. This is a feature that will help to cancel the surrounding sound with the help of your Microphone. This helps you to concentrate on your games. Good music will change your mood to be happy, and you will enjoy the real gameplay.
If you are a gamer and you need to communicate with other players you need a built-in microphone in your gaming headset. Our headsets come with a signature microphone in a class of its own. It provides high-end noise cancellation, so you can chat to fellow players with crystal clarity. If you want to enjoy your valuable me-time without communicating with other players, simply raise the boom arm in vertical position and you are off the air.
If you play for many hours you need to be sure that the headset is non-intrusive and comfortable. Although comfort is absolutely key in a gaming headset this is also a very individual matter of taste.
We have tested our headsets throughout many years on hundreds of different heads to secure the optimal wearing comfort. All of our headsets are developed in light materials for optimal comfort, so you feel the game – not the headset.
You also need to consider the wearing style of your headset and whether you would prefer comfortable lightweight on the ear (L), a comfortable fit around the ear (XL) or extreme comfort around the ear (XXL).
5. Open or Closed:
If you want to keep your ears cool and hear the surroundings outside the gaming sound without disturbing the surroundings too much, then you should go for an open gaming headset.
If you don’t want to be disturbed while playing and don’t want to disturb your surroundings, then you should go for a closed gaming headset. A key benefit for competitive players is that you hear the slightest details, with the closed design – even in noisy environments.
6. Wired or wireless:
Should you go with wire or wireless? It’s one thing you are sure to ask as a gamer. Well, I will answer for that.
There are a variety of top gaming headsets that comes with both wired and wireless. If you don’t like wires coming your way while playing games, go for wireless. You will feel free while using those wirelesses once.m
A wireless one needs to be charged as you use them, something you need to think about. You have to charge it time to time ensuring that the batteries do not get down while playing games, this could be annoying for real gamers.
You want select and continuous signals wired headsets should be chosen. On the other hand, wired could cause you problems. However, you would not have a headache to charge it.
All being put, we would take this down to a personal choice. However, we do feel that if you choose the right wireless headset that can offer a good battery backup and you wouldn’t have to charge them up every day, it does provide a benefit. It’s worth a try then.
7. The durability of Headsets:
Always choose an excellent durable headset for a long run. Their pins, wires, speakers, microphone and also the built quality should be premium. It should be durable enough to handle small falls or accidents. Not selecting the correct one will cause loose in connection or permanently it will be damaged.
In the electronic section the value of good gaming headsets a bit high. It depends on your choice. Buying the cheap one will provide you with the inferior quality of product whereas the expensive ones would be of premium quality. Selection should be made as per your budget between the cheap and expensive ones. Quality and looks of headsets also increase the cost.
