JBL Quantum: the best gaming headsets
Whether you’re a casual gamer, pull all-nighters or stream professionally on Twitch: a gaming headset makes your gaming experience complete. Good sound makes your game come alive and lets you experience the virtual world in all its audio-detail. Most games have amazing soundtracks and audio cues you don’t want to miss out on! But finding the perfect gaming headset can be a challenge. Check out our Quantum line and easily find the headset that suits your gaming style.
What is a gaming headset and do you really need one?
A gaming headset is a headphone that is specially designed for audio in games. The soundscape in games is more diverse than music; even the tiniest sound or change in volume can be vital to your gameplay. Your enemy might be lurking just behind you - then you don’t want to miss hearing their footsteps. So you need a gaming headset you can trust to make sure you don't miss any cues. But what type of headsets are there?
Wireless gaming headset
Need total freedom to move around? Or want to recline on the sofa without pulling out an audio jack? Consider a wireless headset. These headsets connect through Bluetooth to your console. We have wireless headsets suited for Playstation (including PS4 and PS5), Nintendo Switch, Xbox X | S, Xbox One and PC.
Wired gaming headset
Want to save your battery-life for a longer gaming session? Or is your console not optimized for bluetooth connections? Then take a look at the wired gaming headsets. These are compatible with most consoles.
Gaming headset with mic
Love online gaming together with friends or random people from all over the world? Then make sure your headset has a mic. Crips and clear communication will make you defeat the enemy with ease.
Not a big fan of big headphones or headsets? We've got you. Our light and small gaming earphones are your best pick. Check out JBL Quantum TWS for a wireless gaming earphone or the JBL Quantum 50 for a wired option.
Difference between a gaming headset and a headphone
Though it might seem like the same thing, and even though it is possible to game with your normal headphone, a gaming headset is an entirely different kind of headphone. The main difference is that a headset is specially built for the soundscape in games. Also, because gaming has its own aesthetics, the headset has a different look from a regular headphone. Lastly, a gaming headset is made to connect easily to various consoles either through Bluetooth, audio-jacks or even USB-A.
