Headsets come in a variety of styles, such as color, head mounting, and ear coupling. Since headsets typically have two ear pieces, there is usually a connecting piece between the ear pieces, which allows the user to mount the headset on their head. That head mounting can be on top of the head or behind it. Ear coupling provides more options, such as over ear (circum-aural), on ear (supra-aural), earbuds, and canal. Finally, headsets are also available in wired and wireless styles.
The best headset manufacturers from around the world have partnered with Newegg, allowing Newegg to offer its customers the widest selection of gaming headsets, cell phone headsets and headset accessories. Brands include: Logitech, HyperX, Plantronics, RAZER and SteelSeries. Whether you’re looking for style, function or both in your headset for whatever your use case is, Newegg has the brand and model that will satisfy your needs.
Even though headsets are complete devices, it doesn’t hurt to accessorize to ensure that you’re ready for any occasion.
Ear pads: Depending on how often you use your headset, your ear pads will wear out sooner or later. Sometimes they lose their shape and either don’t fit the headset well anymore or won’t stay in your ear. For those times, or whenever you want to share your headset with a friend, it’s good to have extra ear pads handy.
Headset Adapter: Unfortunately, there are different common sizes for audio jacks and it’s impossible to know that your headset will fit all of them. You can make it fit by using a headset adapter. Then you will be ready for any device!
Wire Manager: Tired of getting your headset’s excess wire caught on the environment or your own body? Sick of wrapping your smartphone in wire like a mummy? A headset wire management tool can tidy up your wire problem quickly and efficiently.
As with almost anything you buy, first decide how and where your headset will be used. While gamers will want a gaming headset that is meant to stay indoors and close to electronic equipment, a runner may want a canal style headset that can withstand the elements and body sweat. Also make sure that the headset has the correct connector for the device you will use it with. Need to use the headset with multiple devices? No problem; just get a headset adapter.
Second, decide on what exactly you want to hear when wearing the headset. Cicum-aural and canal style headsets will probably block out the most environment sound, circum-aural headsets also tend to trap heat around the ears, which is why they are sometimes referred to as “ear ovens”, and canal style headsets can sometimes amplify “head sounds” like blood vessel pulses. Furthermore, it is sometimes good to be able to hear your surroundings even while using the headset. In those cases, ear buds and supra-aural headsets may be your best choice.
Finally, decide on the quality of sound you’re looking for. While wireless headsets offer freedom, wired headsets usually provide the best sound. Some of the best gaming headsets also offer surround sound for an even more immersive gaming experience. For a bit of fun when communicating with other gamers online using the headset microphone, some headphones also allow for voice modulation to disguise the speaker as any number of voice styles.
