As an avid gamer, you know one thing’s for certain - your setup isn’t complete without a certain lineup of essentials. Besides the hardware and software required to get your game on in the first place, one must have a proper gaming chair, crisp monitor(s), and a high-quality headset. Now we realize most gamers don’t really have the funds to ball out on a set of headphones that have all the bells and whistles you’d expect from them. But you don’t have to break the bank when it comes time to cop yourself an efficient gaming headset. As a matter of fact, you won’t even have to spend more than $100 to do so.
