Which gambler are you
Which kind of sound you choose depends either on personal experiences and preferences, your own taste, trying it out or on the genres you prefer to spend your time in. At this point we can recommend a 7.1 surround sound especially for noisy games such as shooters or racing games.
In Call of Duty and Battlefield it makes sense to be one second ahead of your opponent in order not to get hit. And that’s exactly the small advantage you can get by listening to your opponent with a matching gaming headset before he attacks. Racing games are also very popular with Surround Sound users. The buzzing of the engines, the ratcheting of the tyres on the asphalt while drifting: Those who are fond of cars will get their money’s worth here.
The Frequency Response
Most people know what a frequency is. But what is a frequency response? Basically, this designation indicates a certain range in which the headset can deliver a clear, high-quality and uniform sound. This range is measured in Hertz. We humans hear in a range of 20 and about 22,000 Hertz. This of course varies depending on the person. In this spin are also the frequency responses of most gaming headsets. The larger the range, the more possibilities the headset offers. In a few exceptional cases, gaming headsets also exceed the range audible to humans – this should not be audible, but noticeable.
SteelSeries has launched Arctis Pro + GameDAC*, a gaming headset with a Hi-Res certified audio system. It is extremely powerful and offers the players an undistorted sound. At up to 40,000 Hertz, the Arctis Pro + GameDAC achieves almost twice as much as its competitors on the market. The headset of the SteelSeries stands out especially in terms of sound. However, most people can no longer really hear the tones between 20 and 40 kHz.
Each gaming headset has a certain nominal resistance measured in ohms. If the ohm value is low, very little power is needed to make the headphones sound. But the quality is not very good either. The higher the impedance value, the louder the loudspeakers will sound with more nuances. This works with the usual PC equipment to a certain extent – depending on the device, additional headphone amplification may be necessary. This is rather rare, however, and is then usually directly included in the technical details of the gaming headsets.
