You get the right gaming experience by using the right headset. The sound is louder and more intense and can even be localized. In this way you are always one step ahead of your opponent. You can always locate where the sound is coming from. You can communicate with the other players in your game via the microphone.
But what do you actually pay attention to when buying such a gaming headset? In addition to the technical aspects, it is also important to pay attention to the practical aspects.
The microphone: Indispensable in gaming is hearing, of course, but also being heard. A headset for gaming can be distinguished from normal headphones because there is a microphone on the headset. Optimization of the outgoing sound can be done via noise canceling, this way your fellow players do not hear sounds that belong to your environment. You do have to pay attention in your purchase that your set is equipped with this function.
The wearing comfort: Don't underestimate the importance of this. What is comfortable and what is not differs from person to person. You have sets that are over-ear but also on-ear sets. On-Ear fits more on your ear and Over-ear fits over your ear. Over-Ear is most common in the gaming world. This is because you are more isolated from the offline sounds from your environment. Over-ear headsets also rest less on your ears, so you feel them less and the wearing comfort is better.
The material of which the set is made should not be underestimated either, foam rubber or leather is of course always better than ordinary plastic.
The cable: With some headphones that are intended for gaming, it is possible to disconnect the cable, this has the great advantage that when a defect occurs, it is easier to replace. After all, just replacing the cable is less expensive than replacing the entire set.
The controls: You want an easy way to control the volume because you don't want to pause your game. You can control many of the sets via the remote control on the cable. In addition, a mute button is always very pleasant within reach to make sure that no one is listening. Some microphones also have the option that when you flip the microphone up, it will automatically mute.
Tips for purchasing:
· Determine your budget
· If you game in noisy rooms, noise cancellation is recommended
· Pay close attention to what material the set is made of.
· Decide whether you want a short or a long cable
· Which operation do you prefer
· Choose a wide frequency range
