Not many people understand the difference between a headset and a gaming headset
. They both have headphones and a microphone, the only difference they see is that gaming headphones 'look cooler'.
Gamers, on the other hand, are attracted by more than mere looks (although cool looking headsets are great). The real thing we're looking for is quality sound to help improve our game.The difference between hearing a footstep and not hearing a footstep can be game winning, or game losing. Not only that, but gamers put their headsets through a lot of wear - so comfort plays a big part in the final decision of which headset to use.
