Esports News – One may think that a gamer only needs a highly functioning computer with mouse and keyboard to execute attacks and counter-attacks. But a gaming headset is equally important as other gaming equipment. Headsets are used for input and output communications among the players and the game itself. The input communication refers to the microphone delivering commands from the player’s voice, whereas the output communication translates to its built-in speakers transferring audio from the game to the player. Aside from the complete virtual environment players can submerge into, communication is also the key to a successful competitive gaming.
