As gamers we tend to spend most of our money on things like consoles (or PCs), controllers, and, of course games. One thing that some people tend to leave out that could vastly improve their experience while gaming, however, is a top-notch headset. To some this may seem like an unnecessary expense. After all, if you don't care for chatting with others online you may think a headset is completely useless to have. The thing is, though, if you don't have a powerful surround sound system, you can get some incredible game audio for a moderate investment by picking up a decent headset instead.

While 10 years ago there were only a handful of brands and models to choose from, there are now hundreds of different options. Nearly every major company from Bose to Turtle Beach make headsets for PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4.

There's a headset out there that will fit your personal needs and budget no matter what. Even the models that are just $30 to $50 provide great audio for both chat and general game sounds. That's less than the cost of a brand new game and it can help bump up the fun in almost any game.

The biggest advantage to having a quality headset is when playing multiplayer titles. In games like Star Wars Battlefront, Battlefield 4, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 it helps A LOT to be able to hear when an enemy is coming up behind you or even just nearby. A good headset will allow you to do just that. This gives you a tactical advantage and will more than likely help you improve your kill-to-death ratio in FPS games.

Even if you don't play online matches against other people, a good headset is great to have. In RPGs like Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, a quality headset will allow you to hear sounds in the environment with better clarity. This plunges you deeper into the game and makes it feel more alive. It's an experience that's definitely worth the investment.
