High End Gaming Headset
Modern computer games are much more sophisticated in terms of graphics and sound than old-days games. In many occasions, hearing what is happening on the screen is equally, if not more important than seeing. Being able to hear it all with crisp clear quality is only possible if you are using a high-end gaming headset.
Professional gamers and casual gamers alike can come up with a long list of reasons why a gaming headset is much better than any standard headset or regular computer speakers. Here are some of the most important characteristics of these headsets.
Sound quality. Obviously the main reason why anyone would want to switch from using a regular headset to a special set is because of sound quality. These headsets are designed in a way that they not only reduce unwanted background noise but deliver crystal clear audio. Most of these headsets utilize Dolby Surround technology putting you right in the middle of the gaming action.
USB connection. A headset’s audio quality largely depends on the way it is connected to the computer. Regular speakers and headsets are typically connected to the audio jacks of the computer’s sound-card and this is one of the main reasons for poor quality of the signal and thus for poor sound quality. It can be plugged in the USB port of your computer or gaming keyboard, practically eliminating the use of the computer’s sound card.
Customization. Similar to other peripheral devices specifically designed for gaming, it would have customizable options. Some headsets have several special buttons allowing players to assign different sound profiles, mute the microphone and control volume levels with a single touch of a button.
Comfort. Long hours of gaming can be tiring. Unlike standard headsets, gaming headsets are designed to meet higher ergonomic standards and are able to provide players with ultimate comfort.
