For those who are new to gaming, buying a new headset can seem a bit daunting. It's kind of like buying a completely new sound system, but just exclusive to you. With that in mind it's important to be well-informed, which is why we've prepared this easy list of terms and definitions to make the best choice.

7.1 Channel Sound

This is the ratio used to explain audio system formats. For example the seven means seven audio channels or speakers, while the one refers to the one subwoofer used in the system. Though a headset does not have seven speakers and a subwoofer built-in, within this context the channel designation explains how the headset's audio would be the equivalent to a 7.1 channel surround system––seven points of directional audio and one source of bass, all in one. Pretty impressive for a gaming headset.

2.4G Wireless Connection

2.4G is the radio frequency of the headset's wireless connection. There are two kinds of connections when it comes wireless headsets: 2.4G and 5G.

2.4G is currently the most common and has proven to be a very reliable frequency that ensures good connection and range. While the 5G provides faster connections to a smaller area, for the function of a gaming headset, 2.4G is more than an even match.

In-line Audio Controls

In-line audio controls are the handy buttons you can find on the cord of your headphones. For a gaming headset, in-line controls will include volume and mute buttons.


Drivers are the speakers located on the sides of your headphones. As the name suggests, they drive audio into your ear canals. In general, the larger the driver diameter, the greater the sound quality and volume.
