Posted 11th September 2018 By: Derpina    1019 Views
Esports News – A good headset makes gaming more immersive, but most of the time, they’re really pricey. Headsets or other gaming accessories are available in the market with the cheapest option, but if you fork over more budget, you can treat yourself to better experiences. In fact, many top-rated brands can guarantee that a more expensive model will offer new definitions of comfort and more advanced features.
This week on Tipify Gaming Equipment series, we feature two of the hottest gaming headsests you can get your hands on: Asus ROG Centurion 7.1 and SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless. Which of the two can fulfill your dreams of achieving the best gaming setup?
Asus ROG Centurion 7.1
This headset includes everything you need to connect to both desktop rigs and consoles. It is equipped with 10 discrete audio drivers and Sonic Studio software to deliver 7.1 surround sound, an eight-channel audio system mostly used in home theater configurations. It can ultimately increase the realism of all game genres and can increase player reaction times in tight combat situations. The microphone, on one hand, is large and non-detachable. However, users can easily move and fold it to any position as it’s uni-directional. All in all, the unit is controlled with the included USB junction box and DAC.
The price of Asus ROG Centurion 7.1 is not for the faint-hearted as it retails for $364 USD, but we can tell that the price is definitely worth it. In addition to 7.1 surround sound, other advanced features of the headset include 20Hz – 20,000Hz audio frequency response, 32ohms impedance, and 50Hz – 12,000Hz microphone frequency response.
SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless
This headset is definitely a catch. Despite its pretty steep price of $330 USD, the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless is often featured on gaming equipment review sites as one of the best gaming headsets of 2018. It carries the best features gamers and music lovers always look for: 40,000 Hz frequency rate, neodymium magnet material, Premium Hi-Res speakers, and 2.4G wireless lossless audio. For speaking commands, it features the widely recognized ClearCast microphone—with studio-quality voice clarity and background noise cancellation. All actions can be controlled with a black wireless transmitter that can manipulate OLED display, dials, and back buttons.
The headset easily surprasses other peripherals in the market. It successfully managed to wrap around your ears the most powerful drivers and the most impressive sound spaces. Without sacrificing comfort, it’s a perfect fit for those who want an extra touch of isolation when listening to music or playing their favorite games.
