LED lights come in a variety of single-color options. RGB LED lights combine red, blue and green into more than 16 million different hues. The warm white light it creates is only an approximation of what a white LED light produces. If you want to add a purer and brighter white to the kaleidoscope of RGB color options, RGBW LED lights can get you pretty close. Just expect to pay a bit more.

Many headsets require you to connect them to a power source in order to turn on the LED lights on first use. After the headset is charged, they will flash automatically every time it’s turned on. Some LED headsets change color and hue on their own, while others have a button you can press until you get the shade you want.

Just because they won’t influence the quality of your gaming doesn’t mean LED lights on headsets can’t serve any practical purpose. In addition to personalizing headsets, they can brighten up a playing space and make you stand out on livestreams.
