Why buy a gaming headset?

As a shop with a passion for gaming, we will give you 5 reasons why you need a gaming headset.
What's the difference between a gaming and traditional headset?
Whether you're chatting with your friends online or listening in on the footsteps of your enemies, you absolutely need a good gaming headset. A good headset will provide clear, balanced sound and offer comfort, even with prolonged use. Let's look at 5 reasons why you need a Gaming headset and what the difference between a gaming and traditional headset is.
Wireless headsets are usually noise cancelling
Let's face it, there's nothing more annoying than when you're playing a game and you can hear the music from another room, the sound of another TV playing or people talking loudly near you. It's almost impossible to escape. It creates distractions during your gaming session and breaks your ultimate focus.
Many Gaming headsets nowadays come with the 'noise cancelling' function. The headset uses tiny microphones to hear and analyse the ambient noise around you. Based on this data, a counter noise is created, which blocks incoming sound waves from outside. We call this 'active noise suppression'. We also know 'passive noise suppression'. By using sound-insulating earplugs, sounds from outside can also be blocked. Because the material forms a strong seal around your ears, it is more difficult for sound waves to reach your ears.

Isolate yourself and limit distractions
Besides blocking out ambient noise, a Gaming Headset allows you to play at any time. Even when you normally wouldn't be able to. For example, when you don't want to wake up your sleeping baby. This makes these gaming headsets ideal for late night gaming. You can turn up the volume without disturbing anyone around you.

Gaming headsets have a better, clearer and crisper sound compared to traditional headphones. A feature that's essential for staying on top of your game. Gaming headsets deliver accurate highs and deeper, rich lows. This way you feel more immersed in your games and feel almost every footstep. A performance that traditional headsets simply cannot deliver.
With a Gaming headset you have a greater chance to react to the attacks of your enemies. With lightning-fast reactions to footsteps and shots, your enemies will not be able to escape you. In addition to stereo sound, some headsets also offer surrounding sounds. This provides a highly realistic listening experience, allowing you to hear sounds from many different angles.
If you play mostly shooting or action games, you should get a headset with surround sound functionality.

Communication between teammates (online co-players)
Game headsets come with a built-in microphone, which allows you to communicate with your friends or online teammates. This functionality is especially useful in online games such as Overwatch. With a gaming headset, you're always in touch with your team, so together you can make important decisions and coordinate strategies that can make the difference between winning and losing.

Gaming headset with a good price-quality ratio
Compared to a full sound system, a gaming headset is relatively inexpensive. To get an experience comparable to that of a headset, you will probably have to spend hundreds of euros on a sound system.
High quality Gaming headsets provide a fully customisable gaming experience. You can swap out components such as ear pads, speaker tags and even the microphone. So if you were to buy a stereo, you'd lose all of the above benefits that a Gaming headset offers.

How to choose a good gaming headset?
There are three important characteristics to consider: 1. sound quality, 2. wired or wireless, 3. noise cancelling.
Impeccable sound quality is crucial to get the most out of your game. Avoid a situation in which you cannot hear your opponents in e.g. Fortnite or Warzone. With a headset, you experience 3D sound and know exactly whether your opponents are next to you, above you or far away from you.
Connecting with or without a wire remains a big question for anyone who wants a headset. It depends entirely on your usage. Don't game much? Then go for a cheaper wired option. Are you really looking for the ultimate gaming experience? Then go for a wireless headset from, for example, Sony Playstation.
Want to be completely isolated from your surroundings? Choose a model with sufficient sound insulation. Normally, over-ear headsets are well isolated.
