Headsets are an essential gaming tool, providing both hifi audio and microphone capabilities. The headsets geared for gaming feature over-ear headphones with an attached microphone, from top brands such as Sennheiser, Audio-Technica, and Avico. These models are designed for optimal comfort after long time periods. The Audio-Technica ATH model features an open back design to allow for increased air flow into the system, reducing heat generation within the headphones. The Sennheiser 320 features noise-cancelling technology within the microphone to reduce ambient noise during communication. These high quality models are best suited with a headphone amplifier to enhance the personal audio experience. On-ear headsets are also available for commercial or office use, providing a cost-effective headset solution.
