Gaming Headsets Information
If you’re an avid gamer, you want to have every advantage possible over your opponents, and high quality sound is one such potential advantage. However, the chances of other people (neighbors, pets, significant others, the police…) actually enjoying your surround sound cranked up to the max while you play your first person shooter online aren’t exactly in your favor. This is where a gaming headset comes into play. Gaming headsets connect directly to your system of choice (either through a cable connection or wirelessly) to allow you to enjoy your games at whatever volume you want without bothering those pesky neighbors. A gaming headset will also come with a built-in mic so you can stay in constant communication with your teammates.
Gaming headsets generally have multiple drivers in the earcups to allow for surround sound capabilities. This can be especially helpful in those first person shooter games where hearing someone’s footsteps behind you can be the difference between a knife in the back or a killstreak. If you go the wireless route you can avoid snagging your headset on something in a fit of rage or excitement.
Being able to control the chat and in-game volume is another advantage since most headsets from manufacturers like Turtle Beach and Tritton offer in-line controllers that allow you to adjust volumes and even EQs. Having a reliable microphone is a must when you need to chat with your team in the heat of battle. Standard headsets and the mics in accessories like system cameras usually give a lot of feedback, making you one of those annoying players everyone has to mute. Gaming headsets also have plush ear pads and head bands, so you can play your favorite game into the wee hours of the morning without discomfort.
There are a wide variety of headphones out there for PlayStation, Xbox and even your computer that will elevate your gaming experience to a new level.
Quality gaming headsets can turn a casual game into an immersing gaming experience. These headsets are characterized by excellent imaging, and are often capable of surround sound playback.
