Crystal Clear Audio with Gaming Headsets from Overclockers
No modern gaming experience is complete without a great gaming headset. With many video games providing the option to play with others and communicate online, a gaming headset has gone from an accessory to a necessity. Headsets are now a vital part of enjoying everything video games have to offer as they become more and more immersive. At Overclockers UK, we know that the three most important things to consider when it comes to headsets for gaming are sound quality, comfort and microphone clarity. Our range of computer headsets is carefully curated to include only those models that meet our high standards, to offer you the most immersive gaming experience possible.
What to Consider When Buying a Gaming Headset
Your gaming set-up should be carefully tailored to your needs, from your gaming chair to your gaming headset. When it comes to choosing the right headset for gaming, there are three things to consider:
Sound quality is top of the list of things to consider when buying a gaming headset. Superior sound will not only allow you to fully immerse yourself in the game, but also give you a competitive advantage for games with interactive and environmental sounds. Some games may include sound cues like footsteps or gunshots—a top of the range computer headset will make sure you pick up on them and enable you to react quickly.
Modern PC headsets also give you the option to choose between stereo or surround sound for a truly entrancing sound experience. Certain headphones in the Overclockers UK range even include 7.1 Dolby surround sound for an almost cinematic experience. Others allow you to customize the features of your headset to fine-tune the audio by balancing the voice chat, which is particularly useful for games in which the background noise may fluctuate, meaning you can hear your teammates even over five circling helicopters. Many of our gamer headsets also include noise cancelling technology, so you can enjoy your favourite game free of distractions.
Microphones are a hotly debated topic among gamers. While some say only a separate microphone delivers the audio quality necessary, others prefer the ease of a microphone attached to their PC headset. In truth, microphone audio quality for microphones attached to headsets has made significant technological advances, so unless you truly need studio quality audio, the inbuilt microphones more than meet the average gamer’s needs.
The microphones on our gaming headsets at Overclockers UK are adjustable so you can find the optimal position and distance from your face. Many also include advanced unidirectional noise-cancelling technology, which filters out all the background noise so you can communicate clearly with your team members. Should you want some valuable me time, simply raise the flexible boom arm, so the microphone is away from your face and you can enjoy gaming independently.
As you may be wearing your computer headset for long periods, comfort is key. They should be lightweight and sit firmly yet gently on your ears. We also provide wireless options, which allow for maximum flexibility while you are playing. From a softly padded headband, to memory foam and micro fibre ear pads that let you play for hours, our gaming headsets at Overclockers UK are carefully selected to ensure that they provide maximum comfort.
