Choosing Your Gaming Peripherals Part 4

Gaming Headset

When it comes to FPS competitive games like CS:GO and Call of Duty, it’s very important to have a high-quality gaming headset because you absolutely need to have good awareness in-game and having a quality headset helps you a ton. Most of the newer gaming headsets come with 7.1 surround sound support for even better overall quality, not only for gaming but also for watching movies and listening to music. What is also important is to have a good microphone with noise canceling to make communication with your teammates much easier. But, at least in my opinion, one of the most important things to keep in mind when buying a gaming headset is comfort. Just like many of you, I too spend countless hours in front of my PC with my headset on, and having a comfortable headset is crucial for those long gaming sessions. Now, let’s go over a couple of headsets that I think are the best both price and quality wise.

Razer’s Kraken gaming headset is one of the best gaming headsets I have ever tried. With its 7.1 surround sound support, watching movies and playing music feels so much better than with other regular headsets. It works with both PC and PS4. Kraken also comes with its own driver and software, for ultimate customization options. What I also like about this headset is that it’s so light and very durable. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve either dropped it or pulled the cable, and it still works perfectly after all these years. The 7.1 surround sound is absolutely amazing. Watching a movie has never been more fun for me. Also, I gotta say, Kraken is comfortable as hell, it fits perfectly on your head and stays in place. The microphone is fully retractable, so when you are not using it for voice chat, you can just retract it into the headset to get it out of the way. Ear cushions are designed for full coverage and the packaging comes with 2 additional cushions in case the original ones are lost or worn out. What’s so cool about this gaming headset, is that it comes in both black and white color options, so it can fit in with the rest of your build’s color scheme if you’re into that kind of stuff.
