Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been provided by AZiO Corporation, Inc.It is widely believed that gaming headsets provide a much more immersive, captivating gaming experience than a speaker set up. They are also great in environments where the people around you don't fancy hearing deafening gunfire and explosions. Gaming headsets generally come in 3 different forms: wired 3.5mm headsets ,wired USB headsets and wireless headsets. One tends to usually decide which of these types to buy before considering things like 7.1 surround, Dolby audio, noise cancellation, etc. 3.5 mm and wireless headsets immediately present compelling features: the former can be used in tandem with a quality soundcard to produce sublime audio output, the latter frees the user from the burden of cables. We are left to investigate the advantages of buying a USB headset, and observe how they compare to the rest. In this article, Benchmark Reviews will test the AZiO Levetron GH808 Gaming Headset and see if it is a viable option for an enhanced audio experience.
USB gaming headsets are ideal for gamers who don't have good on-board sound or a dedicated sound card but still desire decent sound output; USB headsets use on-board sound processing usually in combination with configuration software to deliver great sounds. They are also great for those with multiple machines or gaming laptops.
In testing the GH808, I will use it to play a few games, watch a couple of TV shows, listen to some tracks, and talk to some friends and family over Skype. I will comment on how well the device performs in the multiple scenarios and make comparisons to another high-end gaming headset, the Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless headset.
