I've never been entirely sold on the need for dedicated gaming headphones until I started using the Corsair HS80 gaming headset. It's a relatively high-end gaming purchase, but one that's actually changed how I play games for the better.
Backtracking a little, multiplayer gamers may recoil in horror at the thought of not seeing the point in dedicated gaming headphones. I don't mean you guys. When trying to sneak up on someone in a multiplayer session of something, being able to hear everything around you is incredibly important. No, I mean for single player gaming. I've always been content with my TV speakers or—more recently—a high-end soundbar, instead. However, Corsair's latest headset, the Corsair HS80, has changed all that.
Designed for the PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5, it's a premium gaming headset that lives up to its reputation. Corsair always has made high quality headsets and it's excelled here. It's a pricey addition to your gaming setup, but a real game changer.
