What to Look For in a Good PC Gaming Headset with Mic

There may not be a great deal of variety among PC gaming headsets in terms of their features or how they work. But sometimes, the smallest detail can make all the difference. So, before you dive off and make your purchase just take a few minutes to read through what to look for in a good PC gaming headset:

Wired or wireless?

This is probably the first thing to consider. If price is a huge factor for you, then this choice may already be made as wireless gaming headsets tend to cost quite a lot more than wired ones.

Surround or stereo?

Sound quality is also a very important point to consider when buying a PC gaming headset. The two main types of sound offering you’ll come across on any gaming headset are surround sound and stereo. While surround sound is good for getting a more immersive audio, stereo is better for emitting a slightly clearer and more directed sound.  

LED

Even though you can’t see lights directly when wearing the headset yourself, it can still enhance gameplay by emitting intense glows around the room while in play. Plus, you can always reap the benefits when someone else is wearing it.

Comfort

Anyone that’s worn a headset for more than around 10 minutes consecutively will understand how important comfort is. Many PC gaming headsets offer memory foam earpads which help mold to the most comfortable position for you. Others offer sweat-reducing features that can be extremely for those extra intense gaming sessions.
