Being a gamer no longer means you are sitting in your home and only playing with other players in the room. Today, gamers can meet up from all over the world to play their favorite games together online. One of the best ways to communicate with each other is not the old in game chat anymore. Now, gamers are using headphones to speak to each other in real time to get through their missions. But how do you choose the best gaming headphones for you?
The following are some of the most popular headsets and the features they offer:
• Genius HS-04SU – This set of headphones includes an onboard microphone for easy chatting. It is hands free and has a handy volume control in the chord that has separate headphone and microphone controls. Those who appreciate the chorded headsets and who are strapped on cash can appreciate the low prices that come with this set of headphones.
• Logitech G35 – When it comes to power and sound quality, these are the best headphones on the market in their price range. They can run upwards of a hundred and twenty dollars, but those who want crisp clear gaming with surround sound, there is nothing better. The only issue with this set is that they are very costly while not offering the wireless option. Still in all, having “surround sound” while gaming pretty cool.
• Sharkoon X-Tatic True 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound Gaming Headset – If you are looking for a headset that is truly masterful and that can go from your Xbox to the PC with no problems, then you have just found the perfect headphones. This set up has true 5.1 Dolby Digital sound with four speakers in each earphone that can all be separately adjusted on the control panel. This is the Cadillac of the headphones and offers the most true to life sound of any of the others on the market. The cost is up that at close to a hundred and sixty dollars but those who purchased these felt it was well worth it.
As you can see, price can sometimes be the determining factor in what features the headphones would have. Those who need a more budget friendly option that still offers a good sound can choose the Genius headphones. If you have a bit more money and are looking for more quality in the sound then stick with the Logitech. When money is not an option but sound quality is, then the Sharkoon is probably the best headphones out of the group for you.
