Whether you're shouting commands at your buddies in a raid or want to make sure your housemates aren't annoyed by the racket of your latest game, a good gaming headset is a must. Check out these 5 tips and find the gaming headset that suits you best!
A gaming headset is a pair of headphones with a microphone that is specially designed for gaming. They are aimed at providing the best experience of your game and making communication with your fellow gamers easy. This means that the audio equipment inside the gaming headset is tuned to the sound effects and music of games. Thanks to special microphones, you can still be heard when things get exciting (or you get excited).
Whether you like an over-ear or an in-ear headset is, of course, a matter of preference, but there are differences. In-ear headsets are light and very easy to carry around. Over-ear headsets are very comfortable and have a sound that immerses you into another world.
For the best in-ear gaming sound, buy the JBL Quantum 50.
In gaming, unlike listening to music, wireless gaming headsets are not yet the standard. They are certainly available, but many consoles still use a USB or jack cable connection. So you can choose from both options depending on your console.
If you choose Bluetooth, then the quality of the sound is (slightly) affected by the connection, but a wireless headset offers you a lot of freedom of movement. If you opt for a connection with a jack cable or USB, then you are assured of the best sound quality. But you must be careful when you're 'AFK' that you do not snag your headphones.
Want to make sure your headset has enough pairing potential? Then buy the Quantum 300 with hybrid wiring.
Have you lost a cable? You can always buy a back-up!
Different consoles require different ways of connecting, and it's nice if your headset matches them all. Check out your favorite console and see how it connects to a headset.
JBL's Quantum gaming headsets are optimized for PC gaming and also work with Xbox One, PlayStation PS4, Nintendo Switch, mobile, Mac and VR.
Crackling, reverberation or poor sound quality can make it hard for your gaming friends to understand you. If you like online gaming, it's wise to buy a gaming headset with a good microphone. One important feature of the microphone is that it is directional. The microphone then focuses on your voice so that it (and no other noise) easily can be understood.
Want headphones with a detachable microphone? Then buy the JBL Quantum 100.
Prefer a foldable microphone? Then buy the JBL Quantum 600.
Dazzling graphics are no longer the only thing that enhances the experience of your game. The sounds, music and voices of the characters all contribute. If you want to experience these in the most realistic way, you must choose a pair of headphones especially made for game sound. As you can probably imagine, the composition of a piece of music or an audiobook is totally different from the sound effects of a game.
Want the most accurate and spacious sound possible? With JBL QuantumSURROUND, you'll be immersed in sound as if you were in your game. With head tracking, you get a 360-degree experience of the sound and can rotate your head to find the source. The JBL Quantum ONE features this latest technology.
Not sure what's right for you? Then compare all the JBL Quantum Gaming Headsets and find the headset that brings your game even closer. Sound is survival.
