There really is nothing quite like a good pair of gaming headphones to greatly improve your entire gaming experience. Whether you are looking for a more immersive experience or getting a competitive advantage over your opponents and enemy NPCs, a solid pair of gaming headphones will make all the differences in how you play your game, so now the question is: what are the best gaming headphones of 2016/2017?
2016 has seen the release of so many wonderful games and there are many promising titles to be released in 2017, so if you are looking to invest in good gaming headsets now would be a good time to do so. Any veteran PC gamer worth their salt, especially those who are playing competitively, will happily tell you how big the difference gaming headphones will make–no longer will you be guessing where the enemies are and getting yourself killed because you do not hear the enemy sneaking behind your back, as you can hear anything from your enemies’ steps to the sound of bombs and explosions going off in the background. The best gaming headset is also incredibly comfortable to wear even when you are playing your games for hours with little to no breaks in-between.
If you are looking for all-rounded pair of gaming headphones, then SteelSeries Siberia 840 is one of those models that you will often see being constantly recommended by many gamers across the globe. This model can be worn wired or wirelessly, and thanks to its Dolby virtual 7.1 surround sound technology the sounds you hear in the game will be so much realer than you thought they would. It is also very comfortable for hours of intense gaming sessions, thanks to its memory-foam ear cushions.
If you are looking for something that looks a little fancier than the all-black Siberia, then you might be interested in V-MODA Crossfade, which looks beautiful in bright red and black. It also delivers when it comes to sound quality as well, its bass output being heavy and its treblescrips. It also comes with a travel case and can be connected through USB.
Gaming headsets tend to be on the pricier side, but even with a limited budget you still have quite a few options available. For entry-level gaming, Plantronics GameCom 780 or Turtle Beach Ear Force X12 is excellent choices.
