PC Gaming Headset Buying Guide

Buying a premium-quality gaming headset can be just as important as buying a TV/Monitor for your gaming needs. Whether you’re a hardcore PC gamer or a casual player, headsets are an integral component. Eventually, when it comes to the best gaming headsets, everyone is looking for something different. To get the best possible headset that lines up with your gaming needs, you’ll need to consider various factors. Connectivity (wired vs. wireless), compatibility with different gaming platforms, durability, comfort, and most importantly, your budget.

Factors to Consider Before Buying a PC Gaming Headset

Headset Compatibility

Compatibility refers to the ability of the headset to connect to a range of platforms. Any wired headset that has 3.5mm AUX connectivity can hook up to your PC, PS4 controller, Xbox One controller, mobile device. However, it will not be able to connect to a console that doesn’t have a port for it. Then you need to consider a headset that is Bluetooth or wireless compatible with that platform.

Connection Type

There are several types of connection types: a standard 3.5mm, dual 3.5mm, wired USB, wireless USB, and Bluetooth. Depending on the platform you use, you have to consider the connection type of the headsets you intend to purchase.

Build Quality

It’s essential to find a headset that feels sturdy and lasts you a long time. Most gaming headsets are made of plastic. Some headsets use metal in their construction. Such headsets are usually sturdier than the ones made of plastic but are heavier and cost more.

Surround Sound

While a stereo headset can still provide a great sound, nothing beats the immersive quality of a 7.1 surround sound gaming headset. Headset with surround sound offers up to a 360-degree soundscape, with multiple speakers covering each ear. In certain games, it is essential to know the exact direction of the gunfire, which only a surround sound headset can provide.

Comfort

Whether you play for one hour or all night, comfort is one of the most important things to consider when choosing a gaming headset. The best gaming headsets are made of durable, lightweight materials that make the headset hardly noticeable and allow you to focus solely on the game. Some headsets may feel more sturdy, but over time they may hurt your ears, head, neck, or back due to their design or weight.

Microphone Quality

If you do a significant amount of streaming or online gaming, one of the most crucial aspects of a gaming headset is the quality of the microphone. Look for gaming headsets that provide features such as high-end noise cancellation for a clear vocal sound and adjustable boom arms that let you reposition the mic.

Wireless vs. Wired

The technology you decide to go with ultimately depends on your budget and the gaming device you’re going to use with your gaming headset. Wireless headsets usually cost more but wired headsets are more reliable and can deliver better quality audio. Console gamers will likely prefer a wireless headset, as their gaming console is often ten or more feet away from the couch. PC gamers will probably prefer a wired headset since they are probably near the area where they plan on plugging in the headset.

Noise Cancellation

Noise cancellation minimizes the amount of background noise that goes through from your microphone. Good noise cancellation will let your speech go through perfectly and cancel out any ambient noise. Poor noise cancellation will either let ambient noise through or cut out some of your words treating them as noise.

Conclusion

A gaming headset is a big investment but has a significant impact on the quality of your gaming experience. Good quality headsets will last you across various gaming consoles since headset technology does not change as quickly as console technology. High-end wireless headsets compare well with wired headsets on quality and are significantly better on comfort and flexibility. You can also use the same wireless headset for gaming, office meetings, or regular calls. We hope this buying guide will help you find the best gaming headset for you.
