Enough of going kamikaze in every round of PUBG and Fortnite. So you decided instead of doing banzai charge towards every other player you meet why not do some camping inside a nice little farmstead. But alas! even this disgraceful newfound tactics could not able to save you. And you died to an intruder because you did not hear the incoming footsteps properly or could not able to pinpoint the direction of the footsteps. So, it is time to buy a new gaming headset. A decent gaming headset doesn’t necessarily have to be an expensive one. You just have to be a little bit careful to get the perfect one as per your need in your budget.
How to choose the best Gaming Headset
Clear sound quality
Having clear sound quality should be your no. 1 priority while choosing a decent gaming headset. Always remember that the headsets that are built for music are not suitable for hardcore gaming. You don’t need the superior bass that you will want from a music headset to listen a Metallica heavy metal single. Instead, you need a sharp, accurate and clear sound quality so that you can exactly pinpoint the location of an approaching stealthy enemy player. You want a decent sound quality to get attached to a survival horror game and get a heart attack in the incoming jump scare. So, always search for a great sound quality gaming headset.
Decent microphone quality
If you regularly play competitive co-op online games then you must be sick and tired of hearing complaints from your team-mates about your muffled voice. But you can not just afford to buy a condenser microphone only for online gaming. So be careful when choosing your gaming headset. Try to go for the headset with good microphone quality. Let’s give your teammates a crystal clear command to watch your back instead of talking gibberish while you will be busy looting the delicious airdrop in your next round of PUBG. Or, you can just trash-talk with full confidence to your next bush-camper enemy.
Think about which headset type you like most
There are two types of headsets- open and closed one. If you are a hardcore competitive gamer, a closed ear headset will provide you the sharply detailed sound effect even inside a noisy surrounding. But if you just want to play games casually while talking to your grandma then just go for an open headset. And also, you can be able to choose between two other types of the headset- wired and wireless. While wireless headsets are more compact than the wired one, but still cheap wireless headsets are more susceptible to interference occurrence.
Choose the most comfortable one
Remember, whenever you play Civilization or Total war games you always think, you will be playing one turn more before quitting, in Hearthstone or other online games you always tell yourself- only one round more, and in RPGs, you decide that you will be grinding only one more level about Alchemy skill before ending your gaming session for today. But almost always you end up playing for a good amount of time. So be careful choosing your gaming headset. If you wear too tight and uncomfortable headset for long period of time you might get some headache or other adverse physical problems. Always, buy the most comfortable one.
For many gamers like me, want a more sturdy and durable Headset that last long, so that we don’t have spent our tight budget again in that next month on another headset. In fact, most of the time we end up going for the durability rather than the sound quality of the product. While it’s not always a good idea to ignore other aspects completely but durability is one of the major aspects of a headset you should look forward to. Buy the one which has a flexible frame made from the good quality material. Check out the joints and cables. Read some review about the attachment of the earpiece.
