How to buy a gaming headset

Choices, choices, choices...

When looking for a gaming headset, choice is probably the one thing that gamers have too much of these days. What's good and what's not? Which brands will last and which ones won't?

Leslie Moore of headset manufacturer Plantronics has some tips for gamers looking to get a more immersive gaming experience.

The story is too old to be commented.

Not exactly a guide to purchasing, but I agree with most of what Leslie Moore said. I tend to go high end with my headsets.

Well, they work for Plantronics so they've gotta work that angle :)

Otherwise, yeah, there's definitely an element of you get what you pay for.

to be honest i just buy anything my headset is a 99cent one from the 99cent store, i have a 20$ one for steam and stuff but i dont really talk much and i have a nice sound system set up. Might have to buy a good one i never knew the industry was so cut throat.

That should be a rather nice headset.

I say go with Astro gaming headsets. I have had the cheap ones, also owned a set of Steel Series X5's. they where good. but Astro was way better with the pre amp 5.1.
