Whether you’re a recreational gamer or an all-day player, state-of-the-art sound is a must when it comes to gaming. But with so many gaming headsets on the market, where do you even start?

If you ask us, one of your first moves should be to seek out a headset or a pair of headphones that supports a top-notch virtual surround sound technology – such as DTS Headphone:X. 

DTS Headphone:X simulates a 3D environment of the audio’s original mixing stage, meaning that movies, music and games should sound exactly the way that the artist intended. In other words, it puts you smack-bang in the middle of the action.

Whether it’s the pew-pew of lasers or the roar of a V8 engine, DTS Headphone:X pulls out all the details in the environment around you, resulting in both improved richness and dialog clarity.

Going head-to-head with a sneaky opponent in your favourite first-person shooter? Just imagine how advantageous it would be to be able to locate your enemy moving before you see them. Now that's what you call gaining a competitive edge, eh?

Quite simply, DTX Headphone:X is a sure-fire way to immerse yourself into a deeper gaming experience. And getting a piece of the action couldn't be easier...

DTS has partnered with a range of brands to integrate its game-changing audio tech into some of the latest and greatest headphones and gaming headsets from the likes of Logitech and HyperX.

Look out for the Logitech G series, and in particular the G733 Lightspeed (£140/$120/AU$189). This wireless headset features high-performance PRO-G drivers to reduce distortion, DTS Headphone:X for virtual surround sound and tons of customisable settings in the Logitech G Hub app.

On the hunt for something more affordable? The HyperX Cloud Stinger 2 Wireless Gaming Headset (£99/$99/AU$119) boasts 50mm drivers, up to 20 hours' battery life and DTS Headphone:X spatial audio.

Of course, you could opt to stick with your ordinary old headphones. But why do that when cranking up the audio – with DTS Headphone:X – is guaranteed to enhance your play and help you perform at your peak.
