Gaming headsets are found in much greater variety, now that TeamSpeak or some type of in-game communication is expected with multiplayer titles. ExtremeTech compares 2 of the top models that allow you to lay the verbal smackdown on your opponent while gibbing them with whatever weapon is close to hand.
"We've all seen PCs with boom microphones that sit up on your desk top, and those integrated into laptops, webcams, and
even some LCD monitors. Those may work fine with web chat software, but in games, they're unsuitable. They tend to pick
up the game sounds and re-broadcast them to everyone, creating a long-distance internet-lagged echo chamber. What you
really need is a decent headset. Today we'll look at a pair of themâ€”Creative's Fatal1ty gaming headset ($50 list) and the
Genius HS-04U USB headset ($49)."
