Best gaming headsets for 2018
When it comes to gaming headsets, we know our stuff at Viper! Here are two of the best gaming headsets we’ve found for 2018.
The first headset is the great Corsair series. It is a great headset for entry-level gamers, and at $50 is priced to match. It’s a basic headset, and doesn’t have bells and whistles like surround sound or wireless connectivity, but it does come with a detachable microphone and splitter cable, which is really all you need if you’re a beginner. There are three color options to choose from—green for Xbox systems, blue for PS3 and PS4, and carbon for PC gamers.
The Corsair HS50 headset works with any device—game consoles, tablets, PCs, Macs, even with your phone. There are lots of lower budget headsets, but the Corsair is the cream of the crop. Here’s why.
- Big, comfortable oval earcups that pivot for a great gaming experience
- Thick padded headband for comfort
- Thin, flexible microphone that holds its position
- Long 6-foot audio cable
- Powerful audio delivery
In the end, this Corsair product has superb function. It feels and sounds like it should be a much more expensive headset than it is. It’s a perfect first-time headset purchase.
The GSP 300 series from Sennheiser is a great headset choice if you’re ready to go to that next level. It is an affordable price for an upgrade. The ear pads are memory foam that provides a great seal against outside background noise.
Sennheiser is known for acoustic technology, and the 300 series has amazing realistic sound and clarity. They’ve made some adjustments to the bass, and it’s really intense. You’ll love it.
The design is really great too, modeled after aviation headsets that look, feel and perform like the real thing. They’re designed for comfort too, so you’ll be cozy during those marathon gaming sessions.
They’ve also upgraded the microphone to a broadcast quality mic with noise-cancelling technology that minimizes background noise and breathing sounds. You’ll get crystal clear communication with these babies!
There are lots of headset choices out there, and sometimes the choices can be overwhelming. That’s where we come in. Give Viper Computer a call or come in for a chat.
