A high-quality gaming headset makes it easy to have the full sonic experience of a computer or console. Offering better audio than built-in speakers, USB headsets are also convenient since they do not require any special cables to hook up. The best options not only have great sound, they also fit comfortably over or on the ears so you can wear them for hours on end. Extra padding around the ears is key for a good fit. Keep a look out for special features like a built-in microphone or interactive lighting if you want a more immersive media or gaming experience.
