The PC and console gaming headset industry often sees manufacturers prey on uninformed consumers and sell overpriced units that simply don’t sound good or feel comfortable when compared to a decent pair of headphones from manufacturers like Sennheiser or Grado. That isn’t to say that every gaming headset out there is garbage, I personally love the HyperX Cloud Alpha and their included microphone, but many gaming headsets suffer from sub-standard microphone quality and in scenarios where clear communication is essential, a high quality microphone is a must. Why does there have to be a sacrifice in microphone quality when using a headset? What if you can just eliminate the “gaming headset” middleman and make your own headset, potentially superior to what any manufacturer is pushing on gamers?
