First-person-shooter games have changed the need for a good surround sound speaker to a pair of gaming headsets. To have an edge in FPS, it is imperative you heard every single footstep and noise in the game and the direction of the sound that matters to you.
That said, if you are in the market for a gaming headset, specifically for use with today’s popular consoles (i.e. Xbox and PlayStation), you may want to check out the new Razer Kaira X for Xbox (not to be confused with the Kaira Pro from last year) and Kaira X for PlayStation.
Both headsets feature Razer Triforce 50 mm drivers with improved frequency separation to deliver “crisp highs, clear mids, and rumbling bass.” The headset also offers a boom-mounted Razer HyperClear Cardioid Microphone for crystal clear comms with your teammates.
Other notables include on-the-fly audio adjustment, Flowknit Memory Foam Ear Cushions and headband padding, and a 3.5 mm analog connection.
