For PC gamers or players it makes the game more realistic, engaging and immersive. And we know for a fact that low cost headsets does not offer the bass quality (the Thumping sound) that we need  and its surround sound effect.

Requirements You Should Look into

For starter, headset buyers should consider the noise cancellation effect of the device so you can focus only on what you are doing. In addition it should be easy to adjust so it sits well in your head when you wear it.

For those who are playing RPG games, MMORPG, MOBA , take into consideration that the headset should have an included microphone as this types of games are made to be social like in nature. Players get to interact with each other.

Wired and Wireless Headsets

There are two types of headsets, wired and wireless. The wired headset provides consistent signal and flow of power to the gear so more quality can be ensured. The wireless headset offers movement flexibility as there are no wire tangling over it.

Mechanical Design of Headset

Don’t forget to consider the comfort when you are wearing the gears. It might cancel the noise and give you a very good base sound but if it fits tightly in your ear and does not let at least a small amount of air circulation will leave you sweaty and feeling uncomfortable. Avoid headsets that have too much foam rather than a leather like material which is cooler when you wear them.
