While an in-ear headset may seem like an obvious choice, I’m not a huge fan of them. However, my head is not the ideal size for a full-sized headset. The in-ear design on some of the more expensive headsets can be limiting as they are too short. On the other hand, an over-the-ear design will make you look like a douche. Which I prefer, so I’m happy to let you have that opinion.
The good news is that most in-ear or over-the-ear products are actually good at what they claim to be. There are a few headphones or headsets that come close to what they claim to be, but the majority of them fall far short of what their manufacturers claim to be. If you want something that can be used without having to look down to see what your favorite movie is, a true over-the-ear headset is a no-brainer.
Sometimes you can’t take your own head into your hands, but if you’re just walking around the street and you know someone will be in your street and you’re wondering what you can do to make them understand what you’re doing, then you can make yourself a better gamer.
I use a gaming headset and mic (which I buy for about $40, and have had for 3 years) because I like to think I’m a well-rounded gaming player. I do enjoy the game I’m playing, and I enjoy being able to hear my friends and family, even when I’m far away. I also like to be able to hear my favorite game songs when I’m playing or listening to my headphones. I think that’s why I use the headset and mic.
We actually built a very solid, intuitive and intelligent gamer app that got our game on the App store in 5 days and was fun to play. I love that because Im a gamer myself and am a huge gamer, but we’re still learning.
The problem with gaming headsets and microphones is that they are very hard to use and take up a lot of space. As a result, the majority of players do not have good audio quality, and are often unable to hear their friends, especially when playing with other people. Most gaming headsets are very sensitive, and there is a wide range of sensitivity between headsets.
One of the advantages of a gaming headset and microphone is that they do not require recharging every time you go to sleep. So you can wake up, and have your gaming headset and mic on, but you can still be able to hear your friends if you are at a party. And if you are playing with others, you can still be able to hear them.
In their demo, the team at Arkane showed us various headset designs. The ones that were the best at keeping you on the headset without losing you in the background of the game were the ones with a “floating” microphone. In a game like Borderlands, where the enemies’ noises are often too loud for you to hear, a microphone that floats in the air would allow you to still hear your friends.
We have all been in situations like this when playing a game, and it’s annoying. It’s not something that you can just walk away from. You really need to be paying attention to your surroundings as well as the game. I know I can’t hear my friends in a game like Borderlands without a headset. And if I’m playing a game where the enemies are very difficult to hear, like Resident Evil, then I still end up hearing their footsteps.
Yeah, you can still hear your friend(s) if you wear a gaming headset. But if you don’t, then you will miss out on a lot of the great game play in the game. Just because you can hear someone else doesn’t mean you should.
