Eliminate noise and surround sound
Noise elimination is especially important in e-sports competitions
Gaming headsets are all telephones and offer passive or active noise cancellation. Weak noise cancellation definitely affects the gamer user experience and you should look for great noise canceling options as much as possible. Active noise cancellation is often of higher quality and leads to a deeper sense of the game. Do not forget that the price increases with the addition of active noise canceling (ANC) to the capabilities of the headset.
Surround sound can be considered as one of the most important features of a gaming headset. Gamers, especially in online and multiplayer games, must have a full sense of the sound of all the situations in the scene in order to react to the moves as quickly as possible. Stereo headsets are definitely not suitable for a great gaming experience. Headsets that provide 7.1 channel surround sound to the user in a natural or even virtualized way are at the forefront of professional gamer choices.
Microphone and other details
As mentioned, gamers need a microphone for a variety of uses, from streaming to communicating with teammates in the game. Gaming headsets are designed to provide the best sound transmission quality, but certainly the experience of recording and transmitting sound in different models with different price ranges will not be the same. Important options to consider in the gaming headset microphone include the ability to remove noise and clarity as much as possible and eliminate ambient noise. The placement of the microphone on the headset and even its detachability is very important. Finally, the microphones that use the cover provide better sound quality.
Other factors in choosing a gaming headset include design, which of course should be a final purchase priority. However, most gaming applications are indoors and gamers do not need to use headsets in public environments. On the other hand, users who are looking for multiple uses of gaming headsets should also consider the design.
The ability to replace and repair any of the parts and equipment of the gaming headset is important for professional users. They pay a lot of money to buy a headset and need to make sure their accessories are repairable. Do not forget that warranty and after-sales service can also play an important role in buying a gaming headset.
