How Comfortable Are Gaming Headsets?
The majority of PC headsets are fully adjustable. They allow the position of the ear pads to be placed accurately over your own ears, and the microphone is often poseable to be as close or far from your mouth as you choose. Some headsets also allow the microphone to be flipped into a vertical position when not in use. Headsets usually also feature generous padding, this will be thickest around the ear to help with comfort and sound cancelling but will also be located along the top band of the headset where it rests against the head. The foam filling used in this padding can vary from model to model, with some headsets specifically opting for lighter density foam to achieve a lighter overall wearing weight. If you like to keep your headset fresh, then look for an option to remove the earpads covers for washing, many brands will use highly durable or even sport-standard materials to ensure long life and resistance to heat and sweat so that they remain comfortable even after hours of wear.
