For the untrained, gaming and everyday headphones might look and sound more or less the same. However, key differences lie within the overall quality and headphone capabilities.
Most noticeably, gaming headsets always have a mic attached so players can easily communicate with teammates and be at the ready. This addition of a built-in mic also helps minimise any extra cables and devices that can get in the way of intense gaming sessions.
With game length easily sneaking into the hours, it's essential to make sure your headset is specifically designed for long-wearing use. All JBL Quantum
over-ear headsets are designed with lightweight headbands and soft memory foam ear cushions to maximize comfort, no matter the hour or score.
Overall sound quality also plays an essential part when considering which headset is best. Gaming headsets offer different capabilities to everyday headphones, typically designed and engineered to focus on creating a full, surround sound experience.
Gaming headsets, such as the JBL Quantum ONE
and JBL Quantum 800
also offer active noise cancellation (ANC) to ensure gamers are fully immersed in the world, whether that’s on a battlefield, racetrack, or soccer match.
