PC Gaming Headsets – 3 Serious Sonorous Selections

I won't delve into the specifics as to why it is better to build your own PC rather than buying a console this year. If you really are at a loss, you can read about the age-old debate "PC gaming vs Console Gaming," which should provide more than enough information for you to make your mind up.

However, bickering aside, even those who own both a console unit and a PC may want to invest into something of a more serious sonorous selections to stimulate the saccharine, silky signals in your favourite gaming soundtrack.

Should you be into multiplayer titles instead, these PC Gaming Headsets should help you considerably enhance the experience and communicate with your team-mates more effectively. In any case, whether you play Call of Duty or enjoy a particularly intense Neopets session on your favourite Team-Speak server, these headsets will do wonders and prove to be a great investment.

Razer Electra Essential Gaming and Music Headset - Black

If you play games you should be familiar with all things Razer, whether they are mice, keyboards or headsets. The Electra is not terribly expensive at £50 (approx. $90) and will provide good frequency isolation with a robust mic for team communication.

Rumbling and rambunctious bass frequency-response will undoubtedly reverberate more than a horde of Ratites, while proving sweeter and rounder than a sip of Ratafia.

Like most Razer units, the Electra is built for sturdiness and comfort and should last you for some time, even if you are rather belligerent during your gaming sessions. Remember that this headset has a mic but it is also built for music-listening or single-player experiences. Good Game all.

QPAD QH-1339 Premium Gaming Headset

For all serious gamers this is the absolute epitome of professional audio for games, with an ergonomic design eager to effortlessly elate your listening level. These closed headphones provide smooth plug and play so that you are ready to go in a jiffy. The QPADs provide ample frequency response in either highs or lows, and will deliver absolutely tip-top Hi-Fi quality.

Highs as crisp as an early morning robin's chirp, and lows as rumbling as a relentless horde of moles' incessant tunnel digging. The QPADS are a great PC Gaming headset and cost about £270 ($450). They will guarantee you a great listening experience even outside of PC Gaming audio. Great piece of kit albeit expensive, so save up on that loot.

F.R.E.Q 5 Gaming headset - black

For the last choice I wanted to pick something in between in terms of price, and the F.R.E.Q. 5 are ideal if you have some dosh to spend. The price is not insane at £135 ($220) and a lot of gamers won't mind coughing up the gold on a piece of hardware which will last for some time. These PC Gaming headset guarantees great precision and good frequency response, particularly in mids and lows. The design is quite robust though they are primarily built for PC gaming, so too much mobility isn't recommended.

While the brand is not as well known as some of the top players in the industry, it will still allow you to save up while having all the quality at the mid to high price range. Buy and enjoy.

There are many more to consider of course, so keep an eye on this for additions or new PC gaming headsets  released in the near future.

Twitch TV Can Make Anyone Famous

There is an all new way of broadcasting games around the web now, and it has proved quite popular even among pro gaming communities.

The site is Twitch TV which provides ample access to a variety of genres spread across a number of channels, and this can create a considerable income for whoever is popular enough. The income comes in the form of donations and ad-revenue, as well as affiliate links and the integration of social networking.

Twitch TV has been around for a number of years, having originally sprung up from Justin TV. Many pro channels, like Kripparian's channel or Nadeshot, can pull in a great number of viewers and create quite a buzz among the gaming community.

Of course, there is the choice of more casual gaming stream for those who are not into the pro-gaming scene. The more casual channels, like Sodapoppin, provide entertainment for a less hardcore fan basis even if these streamers are no less knowledgeable about games. The PC Gaming community find this method of broadcasting almost infallible, though many console gamers broadcast too.

New Possibilities

The streaming platform has opened up a variety of new possibility and it has not been received favorably among some of the larger developers. While it can provide free advertising it can also act as a deterrent when a customer is at the beginning of a conversion-funnel process.

It means that by watching how a game unfolds, the customer can lose interest in such a game since it is like he or she would have already played it. This creates speculation regarding copyright laws being put into place in future, and some kind of more rigid regulation surfacing.

All in all, Twitch TV provides great entertainment for every kind of gamer.
