The days of primitive video games with characters one step up from stick figures are long gone. These days, kids and adults both expect gaming to be a life-like, right-there-in-the-trenches experience. That requires sophisticated graphics and sound that makes you feel like you’ve been dropped in the middle of the game zone. A good headset locks you into the world that’s onscreen and ensures all those thrilling gaming noises aren’t a nightmare for non-playing bystanders. The key things to look for are comfort, quality and, last but never least, excellent surround sound.
