There are a lot of gaming headsets on the market, but not all of them can be used comfortably by glasses wearers. The good news is that there are some very good options out there for glasses-friendly gaming headsets.
In this post, we’ll take a look at what makes an ergonomic headset and some of the best options for glasses wearers.
Ergonomics & importance of comfort
Ergonomics: The most important part about a gaming headset is that it fits comfortably around your head and ears. Your glasses should never pinch or cause discomfort when you wear them with a gaming headset, which means it’s essential to pay close attention to how things fit in these areas. If you have larger than average ear sizes, make sure there will be plenty of room inside for both your ears and glasses (gaming headsets come in different shapes and sizes). Some models also offer adjustable temples on either side so that they can be made wider or narrower depending on what feels more comfortable.
Why should you buy one
You should buy glasses friendly gaming headsets because you can’t remove your glasses to put on a headset. This is why many people with glasses choose either headsets that are specially made for glasses wearers or gaming headsets with an open ear design.
Benefits of using a gaming headset with glasses
Other advantages include, if you wear glasses, this type of gaming headset will work great because it won’t have the pressure from holding them in place like other designs do. Your ears and head should also be more comfortable as these models offer much better cushioning than those without padding. And lastly, they’re usually cheaper than higher-end wireless ones so if budget is tight then this might be the best option for you!
However, there are some disadvantages which would be that sometimes sound quality may not be as good when compared to closed back versions and this can interfere with your overall gaming experience.
How to choose the right one for you
Choosing the right one for you is important because a bad headset will not only be uncomfortable, but it can also cause frustration and make the game unenjoyable.
For glasses wearers, choose a model with good cushioning that won’t interfere with your glasses when playing. If you wear hard or large framed glasses then this some gaming headset may not work as well for you because they’ll move around while wearing them.
Quality materials are another thing look out for when buying an ergonomic gaming headset because they’ll last longer and also prevent any rashes from developing on your ears.
What to look out for when buying a gaming headset for glasses
These are important considerations because a poorly designed model can cause headaches and discomfort.
Here are some factors to look for when buying gaming headsets for glasses:
- Quality material build: more expensive materials are usually better and last longer.
- Adjustability to fit your head shape, size or preferences
- Plug and play compatibility with consoles such as Xbox One, PSN or PC games like World of Warcraft: Legion
- Ergonomic design: will avoid any possibility of rashes or skin irritations on the ears.
- The level of cushioning provided by the earpieces should be considered if you wear glasses, since they need enough padding so it doesn’t interfere with them while wearing them (while also being comfortable around your ears without causing discomfort after long hours of use).
What are some good brands?
The most popular ergonomic gaming headsets currently on sale are Razer Kraken Pro VH200s Gaming Headset and SteelSeries Siberia Collection Wireless Gaming Headset.
The SteelSeries Siberia Collection Wireless Gaming Headset runs on Bluetooth. This means it might not be as powerful when you compare them to headsets with headphone jacks or aux cords because of possible interference from other devices in the vicinity (such as wifi).
However, this is only an issue if your headset doesn’t stay near your console most of the time so they can power up again by just putting within range of its bluetooth device. The Razer Kraken Pro VH200s gaming headset plugs into consoles via USB cable or AUX cord, which both give clearer sound than wireless headsets due to being less likely to be interfered with by outside sources.
