Why a surround gaming headset is your best friend

The perfect gaming gear is vital for a gamer that plays first person shooting games as it allows them to perform their best. This is more so true in terms of competitive gaming where professional gamers compete in a tournament against each other. In situations as critical as a championship title where all eyes are on your performance and your team is counting on you, having the right gaming gear will have an impact, particularly, a surround gamer headset.

What Kind of Surround Gamer Headset

So now that you know you need a good surround gaming headset to step up your game, what exactly should you be looking for to have that competitive edge?

First and foremost, choose a Wireless gaming headset that is comfortable to use because you don’t want to be thinking about how it’s pinching your head with tightness or how terribly loose it is around your head and ears. The fit should be just right. When you do get a newly purchased gaming headset, make sure to break it in first so that you get used to its feel.

Second is to make sure that the microphone on your surround gamer headset is working properly and that you can be heard loud and clear. The microphone is an essential part when it comes to FPS pros so that you can coordinate with your team when exactly are you going to ambush, flank, or throw a grenade on your opponents.

Third, and the most important feature about having the proper surround gaming headset, is its audio quality. Believe it or not, the best audio quality coupled with 7.1 surround sound can give something like a sixth sense on the battleground. Having great audio quality and 7.1 surround sound is a must-have for a competitive gamer as it will give you that realistic audio landscape that a gamer needs when on the battlefield. Think of it this way: with the right kind of surround gamer headset, you are putting yourself in the shoes of your character itself as the sound is so immersive.

The Gaming Headset’s Audio Quality

Since you know what kind of surround gamer headset you now need, what exactly should you be looking for in its audio quality?

Try to get a Wireless gaming headset that is rich in detail, strong bass, and one that will actually highlight all the different sounds. When comparing it, after using a normal headset, your gaming headset should deliver more detailed sounds, as well as richer and deeper quality of the sound being delivered. You should be hearing things you haven’t heard before with your old or regular headset.

Take a look at these in-depth best Wireless gaming headsets reviews, they ranked the Recon3D number one for good reasons, although personally I would have included the Astro brand these are good reviews.

What is really important to the gaming headset that you will be getting is the 7.1 surround sound. Getting 5.1 surround sound is nice, but 7.1 will just put it right over the top, which is what you need especially when your sense of hearing will allow you to double as a radar.

A headset’s 7.1 surround sound should provide you with sounds from both near and far the gaming battlefield. This surround sound will allow you to have a sense of distance and direction as to where the shots are being fired or where the footsteps are coming from.

On the Battlefield

Now that you know what to look for in a surround headset, it’s time to simulate what to expect from it, it terms of performance.

Imagine walking in vast walled expanse and you know that an opposing sniper is lurking around. He fires a shot but the noob misses; the sound that you will hear from his gun should reverberate along the area’s walls and should travel to you seamlessly. With the use of a great surround gamer headset, you can immediately tell where the shot was fired, thereby allowing you to turn quickly to that direction and fire back.

When you have armor on and expecting a terrorist, an alien, or a merc to come at you but you don’t know which direction he or it will come from, the gunfire will tell you where he is. In crucial moments like this where every precise movement in just a split-second is vital to get that win, footsteps or gunfire which can tell you where your enemy is located is invaluable so you can surprise him before he surprises you, or you can engage him guns a blazing.

Different circumstances such as these are the big things that decide the game, while the right kind of surround gamer headset is the one that gives you that leg up on your enemies. Skills are great, but when you combine it with the right gear, you are sure to be unbeatable!
