One of the most essential pieces of equipment for any hardcore gamer (besides a controller) is the gaming headset.
Being able to fully immerse yourself into the world of the game is only one benefit of this must-have accessory. Headsets bring so much more to the table.
For a fan of first person shooters it becomes essential in helping you beat other players. Being able to hear the enemy footsteps as they attempt to sneak up and score a quick kill means all the difference between scoring a win for the team... or becoming the embarrassing victim of the final kill cam at the end of the match.
