Anyway, since the kids spend so much time on their computers, we give them headsets. Not only does this help them to concentrate by drowning out distractions, it also helps preserve my sanity, since I don't really want to hear tons of gaming sounds all day long.
All headsets are not created equal, though. Sophie and Xander started off with some cheap, kids' headsets. These didn't last long at all, as they weren't exactly durable, to say the least. The sound quality also left quite a bit to be desired.
Recently, we got to check out the AWESOME Virtual 7.1 Gaming Headset from 1byone.com. These headphones take gaming to a whole new level, and offer the absolute best sound quality I've seen from over the ear headphones. It's literally like hearing everything in crisp, clear, 7.1 Surround Sound.
- HD Audio Performance - With 50mm Driver Unit and 7.1 virtual surround sound technology, this headset can provide a high audio performance. What's more, virtual 7.1 works great for you to easily distinguish directions of sounds, such as footsteps, gunshot or conversations through remarkable sound effects, thus introducing yourself to a fantastic world of gaming sound!
- Maximum Comfort - Soft over-ear earmuff and lightweight elastic headband design offer you the best fit. Ultra noise reduction can help to immerse yourself in game enjoyment. When you press the light button, the ear muff will show red light, it is very cool to fight with the support of light.
- Retractable and Adjustable Microphone - Retractable design of the mic makes it easy to adjust the mic to a comfortable distance for a better conversation quality; the In-line rotating volume control and microphone controls are very handy and convenient; moreover, when you press the mic control button, the mic will light so that you know if it is working.
- Customizable Setting - The included drivers allow you to customize settings like sampling rate, equalizer, profiles and Xear Surround Max etc.; compatible with windows series.
- Compatibility - The braided cord is long enough to plug into the USB port. Compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, or even your PS4, plug and play if you don't need any advanced setting
We are very pleased with these over the ear headphones. They are made very well, and are incredibly comfortable to wear. There is enough padding to make these very cozy feeling, and they adjust to fit different sized heads.
There is also a handy microphone, which can be retracted when not in use.
But the BEST part of these headphones?
This is seriously like having your own personal home theater. You can make adjustments to the settings like sampling rate, equalizer, profiles and Xear Surround Max etc. This allows for an amazing, theater-like experience. Seriously, even my very tech-savvy husband was blown away by the wonderful sound these headphones offer.
If you're looking for an out of this world gaming experience, and the richest, realest sound possible, definitely check out these great gaming headphones. They are absolutely fantastic, and will definitely help enrich your gaming, learning, or even streaming video experiences online.
They would also make a wonderful gift this Holiday season!
