So we all know by now about the best gaming headsets below $100 for gamers. But what about gamers who like to listen to their game with earbuds and not those huge headphones that make you look like you’re an astronaut getting ready to land on the moon. This list of the best gaming earbuds are just for you.
So what makes a brand the best gaming earbuds?
First is the quality of sounds obviously, the good models can deliver just as high quality sound as the bigger headphones that cover your whole ear.
Isolation is the second part. It might look like you get better isolation of sounds when you put on big headphones that cover half of your face, but the reality is that good gaming earbuds with solid isolation can work just as well.
Comfort is also very important, like anything you wear or put close to your body, if it’s not comfortable, you won’t wear it for long. And when you plan a full night of WOW or Call of Duty sessions, you need the earbuds to be very comfortable to be able to play and win.
