Choose the best gaming headset or gaming microphone for you
From casual levels of play to the peak of esports competition, at least one thing is synonymous: sound is of the utmost importance for gamers of all levels.
Gaming headset vs speakers
While some still employ elaborate surround sound or traditional 2.1 computer speaker setups, most gamers now rely on the convenience and soundproofing that comes from a quality gaming headset. Gaming headset designs (and prices) range from models that include stereo sound only, to more premium offerings that not only help better keep external sounds out, but enhance the sounds of your chosen game all the way up to full 7.1 surround. Many top models also offer optimized tuning through built-in software offerings from Dolby and other trusted brands.
Surround sound gaming headsets
The difference between a surround sound gaming headset and stereo gaming headset is easy to hear. For more casual gamers, a wired gaming headset with stereo sound is an affordable choice that might be as much as you’ll need if you’re more into casual play. But for more competitive players, a wireless gaming headset with top-tier 7.1 surround sound technology is almost a necessity – as they offer unobstructed freedom from wires and the full breadth of sound that ensures you’ll never be crept up on by a lurking opponent.
This day and age, wireless technology is as fast and reliable in most all cases as wired, so for the most comfortable experience when gaming, find yourself the best wireless gaming headset. Luckily, Lenovo has dozens of wireless models to choose from.
Wherever you land on the spectrum of play, top gaming headsets for both casual and advanced players can be found right here at Lenovo.
Get the best gaming headset brands from Lenovo
Lenovo’s own gaming brand, Lenovo Legion, has several gaming headset models that rival the best gaming headset brands the industry has to offer. But at Lenovo, we know that choice is king, so we don’t limit you to just one brand. Lenovo also offers top gaming headsets from well-known and trusted brands such as Razer, Turtle Beach, HyperX, and more.
So, if you’re deciding what your next gaming headset is going to be, rest assured that Lenovo has it.
Gaming headphones vs headsets
For the most tuned in audio when gaming, most gamers prefer a gaming headset with a dedicated boom mic that sits directly over the mouth – this may allow the most clear and precise in-game voice communication due to proximity alone. However, many over-the-ear audio devices are designed with the mic built directly into the frame of the device, in lieu of a dedicated mic – these devices are most commonly known as headphones. Gaming headphones do exist, but most brands stick to the preferred gaming headset design. Headphones are used more often for phone calls and enjoying music, but many headphones can be easily utilized for gaming. So, if you’re looking for the best of both worlds, see all of the headphones we offer.
And don’t worry, we didn’t forget about all you video game streamers out there. For you, a quality gaming mic that ensures your voice clearly reaches your followers is as important as having a quality headset. Just for you, Lenovo offers gaming microphones from top brands like Blue Yeti and more.
