    Tips to consider when choosing Gaming Headphones - but soundguys.com.

    How over the ear headphones fit on your head is one of the most important things to consider, especially for gaming headphones. If you’re going to play for long periods of time, a bad fit can be physically painful—meaning you can’t really give all your focus to fragging.

    It might seem fine at first, but trapped heat, sweat, and friction can build up over time. After an hour or so, even minor discomfort can feel pretty awful. A little extra weight in the wrong spot can give you neck pains. Slight pressure in the band can turn into sore ears or full-on headaches.

    Isolation matters

    The quality of a headphone’s seal greatly affects the quality of its sound. Poor isolation can really change what you hear, and that’s especially important for headsets and games that use very slight directional audio cues.

    The size and material of a headphone pad can have a lot to do with the quality of the seal. If the foam of the headphone pad doesn’t create an effective seal immediately, it may just need time to mold to the shape of your head. If the pad itself isn’t big enough to fit around your ear, you should look at either a bigger pair of headphones or replacement pads with a larger circumference.

    If you wear glasses, you should really consider getting velour pads for your gaming headphones, or at least gaming headphones with eyewear channels in the ear pads. Without them, you’ll almost certainly miss out on a lot of bass. Just look at this chart comparing frequency response:

    The gray line is what the frequency response looks like with glasses and the colored line is what it’s like without.

     

    They’re exceedingly rare, but some gaming headphones include noise cancelling, which can filter out background noise and make your audio output clearer. Even if you’re playing at home where things are relatively quiet this can help. Traffic out the window, or annoying roommates or family, won’t cause too much interference.

    Hearing all those footsteps and distant gunshots from different directions can save your life wandering around Fatal Fields in Fortnite. It’d be a shame to miss any of them.

    Build Quality

    Most gaming headphones are made of plastic—often cheap plastic. It’s important to find a headset that feels sturdy. If you can find something with a metal or wire frame, that’s ideal. If you’re stuck with plastic, find something with enough range of movement to account for whatever the shape of your head is.

    With something made of cheap or flimsy plastic, even a little bit of tension or pressure on the headset can add up. Plastic can creak very loudly when it’s pushed even a little bit. I’ve even had a headset snap in half rather abruptly after a while, and I don’t even have a particularly large head.

    Some headsets, like Beyerdynamic’s Custom Game, use an all-metal skeleton, meaning it can take a beating and keep on ticking. Definitely keep this in mind if the headset is going to be used by a… passionate gamer.

    Mic considerations

    The Beyerdynamic Custom Game gaming headset features a detachable boom mic, making it a more versatile set of headphones.

    The mic of a gaming headset is often overlooked, but it’s important to think about a few things when you’re shopping around.

    For starters, don’t get too attached to finding a recording quality gaming headphone microphone—they don’t exist. Gaming headphone mics often struggle in the bass range of the frequency spectrum, which can make people with especially deep voices sound a little like they’re coming through a tin can.

    These mics also often don’t get quite enough power through their given connection, whether it’s 3.5mm or USB, which means you might sound a little quiet. If you’re speaking over Discord or a console voice chat, this is pretty easily solved in the settings.

    If this is a headset you could see yourself using on the go like a normal pair of headphones, it might worth looking at one with a detachable microphone. If you’re a homebound gamer, that’s less of a consideration, but making sure the microphone is adequately maneuverable is still important—even adjusting things by an inch or two can make a huge difference in call quality.

    Surround Sound

    Not to be confused with 3D sound, surround sound is a relatively common feature in gaming headsets, and depending on the style of game you play, it can be pretty important. Headsets with surround sound offer up to a 360-degree soundscape, with multiple speakers covering each ear.

    They make it so if something is coming from behind you to the right, you’ll hear it from that direction. In most forms of entertainment, this is a luxury feature. In games, it can provide a real competitive advantage. If you’re one of the millions playing Fortnite, it’s a must.

    Surround sound comes in a variety of standards. There’s Dolby 7.1, DTS:X 2, Windows Sonic, and a variety of others that headphone companies make themselves. Frankly there’s almost no perceptible difference between any virtual surround sound option—pretty much all of them simulate a virtual 7.1 environment, seemingly in the same way.

    Recently a newer generation of surround sound standards have started popping up, described as spatial audio. The most notable examples of this new kind of standard are Waves Nx, which you can find on the Audeze Mobius, the HyperX Cloud Orbit S, and a couple others, as well as THX Spatial Audio, which is used by the more expensive Razer gaming headsets. These kinds of standard function very similarly the usual virtual 7.1 experience, but try to add a degree of verticality to the audio—it’s basically supposed to make it feel like audio’s happening all around you in a sphere, rather than just in front, to the sides, and behind you.

    Many gaming headsets still offer stereo sound. If you’re not super concerned about knowing where every footstep is coming from at any given moment, there’s nothing wrong with that. Players of MOBA games like League of Legends and DOTA 2, or character action games, or really just about any single player game will have no issue at all with a stereo headset.

    How does the gaming headset look

    Gaming headphones tend to feature geometric design patterns.

    I call this the “will my roommates laugh at me” factor. Many gaming headphones look just like normal headphones with a mic attached. Many others look more like an alien spaceship docked on your head. Some of these things come in wild colors, with strange angular designs, colored LEDS, and names seemingly more likely to belong to something that fires lasers than covers ears.

    This is especially important if you’re planning to wear your headset in public. Having a detachable mic won’t help if it looks like you’re wearing a little Tron lightcycle on your head

    As you c an see from the above review the AC-DHE 8005 Gaming Headphones tick all the boxes on what to look for in a gaming headphone!

      This awesome device has everything i am looking for when it comes to my audio needs. It has a quality Look & feel and is ergonomic.
