What is the best headset for PS5? Now that the next generation of consoles is upon us, you need a headset that is going to be able to keep up with the vast worlds that Sony’s powerhouse of a machine can bring.
That’s why the Nuraphone, partnered with the Nuraphone Gaming Microphone (of course), is the best PS5 headset you need to perfect your console gaming setup. Whether it’s the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn in Spider-Man: Miles Morales, the howling wind in Ghosts of Tsushima, or the ever-expanding cosmos in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, the PS5 has some truly impressive soundscapes that only the best headsets for PS5 will let you enjoy.
The short answer is no.
While the PS5 does support native bluetooth, there is little native support for headphones. It’s mainly for connecting wireless keyboards, mice and approved Sony products. However, the Nuraphone and the Gaming Microphone have a wired connection that plugs right into the console, making them easy to use. Nothing stands between you and the game.
Funnily enough, most gaming headphones aren’t noise cancelling. Crazy, right? Nuraphone gaming headsets offer both noise isolation and noise cancellation simultaneously, making it the best PS5 headset. It has small earbuds that fit inside the ear canal and block out external sounds in addition to active noise cancellation technology.
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.
The best PS5 headsets give pro gamers a competitive edge and elevate their gaming experience. A number of competitive gamers such as Ian "Enable" Wyatt, Jordan "Jkap" Kaplan, Dean "Wolfy" Leander and Mitch "Uber" Leslie recommend the Nuraphone headset for 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 not have a problem with that when you’re a few kills off your third victory royale of the night. 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.
Nuraphone has another advantage over other gaming headsets in this regard. After detaching the microphone, your Nuraphone can function as a music player in virtually any situation.
Nuraphone's gaming headsets definitely excel in this department. There are gaming headsets with impressive features, but only the Nuraphone offers 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.
Do you reckon Mick Gordon killed it with the Doom: Eternal soundtrack? Imagine hearing that score when it’s been tailored specifically to you.
But, what is the best headset for PS5 without the best microphone to go with it? The microphone in your gaming space should not only capture good sound quality and filter out plosives, but also ensure no background noise comes through and disturbs the experience of your teammates and opponents.
The average gaming session lasts for a few hours, hence a comfortable microphone is essential if you want to game. For many, this means placing an external microphone close to their mouths using a boom arm stand or shock mount, but there are also a lot of people who find that uncomfortable.
The workaround is to integrate gaming microphones into the best headsets for PS5. 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.
Among the most common sound patterns are:
- 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.
It makes sense that the Gaming Microphone is a cardioid microphone, since it's designed to pick up only sounds coming from your mouth. Therefore, the Nuraphone Gaming Microphone offers a high quality voice recording and listening experience.
Microphones 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.
With the Nuraphone Gaming Microphone's cardioid polar pattern, your voice is recorded in perfect clarity. It removes background sounds such as your controller clicking, as well as plosives.
The answer is simple. While the Nuraphone offers an unparalleled audio experience, the Nuraphone Gaming Microphone records your voice with perfect clarity.
