Whether gaming, working in a technical crew or broadcasting, a comfortable all-in-one audio monitoring and microphone solution is a must. Headsets can be described as headphones equipped with an inbuilt microphone. They can come in many shapes and sizes depending on application. Small, wireless Blutooth headsets are great companions for smartphones and webconferencing platforms, like Skype, or any other situation where a discrete, hands free solution is required. Where higher fidelity audio is needed, such as during online gaming, a larger, more comfortable wired headset with a mic boom and over-ear pads such as the ATH-BPHS1 from Audio-Technica is best for an immersive experience.
