The Best Bluetooth Gaming Headset Isn’t What You Think
We say that because you probably think a good bluetooth gaming headset doesn’t exist. And that is certainly a valid way of looking at it. The subject of bluetooth and whether or not it mixes with gaming headsets is a complicated one that we are going to cover in detail with this article. By the end, it’ll make more sense when we say that there is a good bluetooth gaming headset.
Yes, there do exist bluetooth gaming headsets. They’re known for the flexibility and comfort they offer because they don’t have any cumbersome wires that get in the way. When you’re gaming for hours on end, the freedom of movement that a wireless headset offers is a gigantic asset.
Additionally, bluetooth gaming headsets don’t require an external dongle to wirelessly connect, freeing up one of your USB ports for anything else you might need, such as the charge cable for your wireless controller.
Like anything, particularly when it comes to gaming products, a bluetooth gaming headset comes with its own set of pros and cons. We’ve mentioned the freedom of movement and the comfort that bluetooth gaming headset offers, but there are two cons:
— Both PCs, as well as consoles such as the PS5 and the Xbox Series X, do not natively support bluetooth, requiring third-party peripherals.
— Bluetooth connections create latency problems that might not be an issue when you’re listening to music. But, when you’re in the middle of trying to play an online game, and your ping is already 150ms, it can be like nails on a chalkboard.
Call us biased, but we nominate the Nuraphone. When you pair it with the Nuraphone Gaming Mic, you’ve got a powerful piece of gaming technology that will deliver the optimal gaming experience to your ears. You’ll never look at your favourite games the same way again.
But why exactly is that? We can’t just make a bold statement like that without backing it up. So, here are the reasons why the Nuraphone Gaming Headset is the best bluetooth gaming headset.
There are distinct differences between gaming headsets. Some have a higher price tag, while others have a better sound engine that can better interpret the sound environment of video games.
The level of presentation in video games has improved greatly in recent years. Games nowadays have meticulously constructed soundscapes that perfectly blend all kinds of sounds and ambience, transporting you to all kinds of fantastical worlds.
And then there’s the music. There’s nothing like having your finest gaming moments accompanied with epic orchestral suites, brutal thrashing death metal, and everything in between.
It's great to hear these amazing audio experiences when gaming headsets can translate them into the perfect listening experience. Nuraphone achieves this in a way that is unmatched by other gaming headphones.
Noise-cancelling headphones are not found in all gaming headphones, which is crazy, right? Who would want background noise to distract them from gaming?
How does noise-cancelling work? The audio experience is greatly influenced by both noise cancellation and noise isolation (they are two different things). Noise isolation refers to physically blocking outside noise, whereas noise cancellation involves a speaker embedded within the earbud playing an inverse frequency that cancels out ambient noise. When used properly, active noise cancellation is most effective at blocking low-frequency noise, such as droning ambience, while noise isolation can better block high and mid-range noise.
Nuraphone gaming headsets offer both noise isolation and noise cancellation simultaneously. It has small earbuds that fit inside the ear canal and block out external sounds in addition to active noise cancellation technology.
Say, however, that you must be aware of your surroundings. If you want to switch the noise cancelling on and off, you can do so using the "Social Mode" feature on the Nuraphone. All of the surrounding background noise can be accessed and closed off by the user with just the push of a button.
What bluetooth gaming headsets do pro gamers use?
Pro-gamers go for gaming headsets that will elevate their gaming experience and give them a competitive edge. Many competitive gamers such as Ian “Enable” Wyatt, Jordan “Jkap” Kaplan, Dean “Wolfy” Leander and Mitch “Uber” Leslie have touted the benefits of using the Nuraphone headset for their gaming.
However, don’t feel discouraged if you’re just gaming for fun. Nuraphone's gaming microphone can be used by anyone, regardless of experience level. You can now have an immersive audio experience to boost your favourite games to new heights you never imagined possible with the Nuraphone.
The problem with gaming headsets is that they are usually large and bulky. You might find that useful when you're playing your favorite game. But you’re going to have a not-so-fun time if you try and listen to music outside while wearing a pair of gaming headphones with a microphone jutting out.
It is another advantage that the Nuraphone has over other gaming headsets. Afterward, detach the microphone, and your Nuraphone can serve as a music player in practically any environment.
But this is where the Nuraphone definitively outshines all other gaming headsets. Sure, gaming headsets might boast impressive features, but only the Nuraphone has personalised sound.
Through a sophisticated process, the Nuraphone monitors how you listen to audio by reading otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) that resonate from your ear drum when you listen to a certain tone. The Nuraphone then generates a personalised profile that caters its audio playback to you. That’s right, imagine all of the different sound components that come together to make the audio of a video game, only now they’ve been engineered specifically for your ears.

But, what is the best bluetooth gaming headset without the best microphone to accompany it right?
The factors that can be used to decide on a potential gaming microphone aren’t as expansive as with headphones or earphones, but they are nonetheless important. Below are some factors that are important to examine when you’re selecting the best microphone for a bluetooth gaming headset.
When gaming, your microphone has to not only be able to produce good quality sound and eliminate peaks from plosive speech, it has to work well within your gaming space to filter out background noise, while also being compatible with your console of choice, whether it is Playstation, Xbox or PC.
Gaming tends to be a commitment that lasts for a few hours. If you want to game, your microphone needs to be comfortable to use. For many, this means placing an external microphone close to the mouth using a boom arm stand or shock mount. However, this can be very cumbersome for some.
The workaround for this is the integration of gaming microphones into headsets. To that end, the Nuraphone Gaming Microphone connects with the Nuraphone to function as a seamless gaming headset. The Nuraphone itself is already built for comfort, and that comfort is not compromised by the addition of the Nuraphone Gaming Microphone.
A microphone records sound patterns based on its direction and space. Depending on the recording situation, different microphone types have different shapes.
The most common examples of different sound patterns include:
— Cardioid microphones only record what is directly placed in front of them, which is why they also go by the name “unidirectional”. This makes them ideal for a lot of content creation activities such as game streaming, as well as podcasting and music recording.
— Stereo microphones use both the left and right channels to capture a wider sound image, making it ideal for rich sources of sound such as an acoustic guitar or a choir.
— Omnidirectional microphones pick up sound from all directions surrounding the microphone. These are perfect for recording large-scale events such as live performances, conference calls, gatherings and wide-area ambience.
— Bidirectional microphones record from both the front and the rear of the microphone, which works well for recording a duet or a two-person interview.
Nuraphone's Gaming Microphone is a cardioid microphone, which makes sense considering it's designed to pick up only sounds that come from your mouth. As a result, the Nuraphone Gaming Microphone offers a high quality audio experience while recording as well as listening.
Mics record and hear based on the frequency range they operate in. Nuraphone Gaming Microphone has a frequency range of 100-10,000 Hz, which means it will pick up any sound within that range. For reference, the human ear picks up all sounds within a range of 20-20,000 Hz, and a musician would be looking for a vocal mic with a frequency of around 80-15,000 Hz.
Combined with the cardioid sound pattern, this is how the Nuraphone Gaming Microphone can record your voice in perfect clarity. In addition to its boom mic, the pop filter filters out background sounds, mouse and keyboard sounds, as well as plosives.
Why do the Nuraphone and the Gaming Microphone Make the Best Combo?
The answer is simple. While the Nuraphone offers an unparalleled audio experience, the Nuraphone Gaming Microphone records your voice with perfect clarity.
