Use Gaming Headset Audio To Your Advantage

We all have played against the guy that seems to always know where you are. Seems to have spidey-senses, knowing when you’re trying to sneak up behind him. I used to think that guy just had too much time on his hands and somehow fused with his Xbox/PC/PS3. Playing far more than anyone should. I truly believed this until I got a set of headphones to play on my Xbox.

Magically I was able to hear things I didn’t know were there. People jumping, items being captured, doors opening and most importantly footsteps. This opened up a whole new sense that was previously unknown to me. Soon my scores were improving, people were wondering how I knew they were behind me, I was that guy.

Audio cues are important in competitive gaming. When you can’t see your opponent and you don’t know where they are you are at a disadvantage. You can use audio cues to figure out where your opponent is. Knowing where your opponent is a huge advantage if he doesn’t know where you are.

Use Gaming Headset Audio To Your Advantage

When you initially start using headphones you’ll hear a lot of sounds that you’ve never heard before. Take note of what each sound means. A “ding” may mean a power up was picked up. If you know where the power up is located, you know where your opponent is. Games such as Quake have other audio cues; a grunt can signify that an opponent is jumping. Is there an area where a person would have to jump multiple times to get to; possibly a sniper nest or some bonus item? You must distinguish what each set of noises can mean. Maybe a door opening followed by a series of jumps means you opponent has placed himself in a place to ambush you when you walk through the door. All these scenarios can be used to your advantage.

The addition of footsteps in video games let’s everyone pretend they’re clairvoyant. Listening for footsteps can be a huge advantage. Listen carefully as you turn a corner; are there footsteps around the corner? If there are, start shooting before your opponent turns the corner. He’ll be wondering how you knew he was there. You can use footsteps to figure out where in a building someone is. If you know there are players in a room, use the footsteps to calculate where they are. When you enter guns blazing, you’ll be able to point your crosshairs much faster than others.

Headphones help to provide a better gaming experience. They’ll allow you to hear all the small nuances the developers placed into the game. They help to immerse you into the environment. Explosions will boom, ambiance will be set by the soundtrack, small sounds like shells hitting the floor will allow you to enter the game world.

Turtle Beach Wireless Review – Rating the Ear Force X11 Amplified Gaming Headset

In this article we are going to discuss both the good and the bad about the AXJlbGVzcy03LTEtZG9sYnktZGlnAXRhbC1zdXJyb3VuZC1zb3VuZC1nYW1pbmctaGVhZHNldC13AXRoLWJsdWV0b290aA==#” title=”Turtle Beach”>Turtle Beach Ear Force X11 wired Xbox360 gaming headset; and whether it will REALLY will make you a better player. When I got them home it only took me about 3 minutes to hook the X11 gaming headset to the Xbox 360 console;so that was a huge plus already.

The very first game I tried with my new headset was Gears of War…and MAN was I BLOWN AWAY! I felt like I was almost in the game fighting it was so intense!The explosions were as close to real as ever and I could actually HEAR the enemies as they came closer and closer! Next I tried Call of Duty 4 and it really is true,you can hear the enemies running past you as you hide. By this point I was very impressed with the sound quality, and they have been blocking out distractions and improving my gaming experience for the last several months now.

The Ear Force X11 Headphones have an In-line amplifier providing better game audio,enabling stereo game sound while providing a clearer Xbox live chat experience. The bass boost truly adds a realism to the sound effects,and luckily adds separate controls for game and chat volumes. Also another great feature which Turtle Beach added was two sets of jacks are included; so not only can you use the X11 headset with PC games, we have used it quite nicely with Skype!

Turtle Beach Wireless Review – Rating the Ear Force X11 Amplified Gaming Headset

COMFORT LEVEL-9 I have enjoyed many nights of gaming till sunrise and never once has comfort been an issue.

SOUND-9 These are equivalent to my old Boston Acoustics speakers in sound quality only with far less price tag (about 0 less).

MICROPHONE-8 Far superior to the original Xbox360 microphone headset in durability and sound quality (not saying much there,though). Your teammates will love you for it!

DURABILITY-8 Honestly this is a VERY durable headset, but it WILL NOT withstand aggressive 3 year olds OVERALL RATING -9 All things considered, this headset is well worth the investment in this author’s opinion!

CONS: 1) CORD TWISTING-Not really a serious issue, but the cord does need to be unwound every now and then. Running the cord under a small rug helped me a lot also.

2) CHAT BUTTON- Probably my only real issue with this headset is the on/off talk button could be slightly larger
