Introduction

In the world of gaming, graphics are King. It’s no surprise, and graphics cards tend to get all the hype. Look at the shiny new game engine! Look at those particle effects! You’ll find no argument here, but have you ever stopped for a minute and turned off the sound in one of those gorgeous games? Think about it for a second: when was the last time (if ever) that you simply unplugged your headset or turned off your speakers when gaming? I’m willing to wager you’ve never done it. If you have, you probably died very quickly at the hand of any noob adversary.

Why? As popular as graphics may be, it is arguably the sound that makes a game immersive or memorable in many ways. It is that special audio connection that sets the atmosphere. It is also that audio that often means the difference between life or death in an online multiplayer gaming environment.

Gigabyte is continuing their foray into the gaming peripheral market, and this time it’s the audio arena with the launch of a new gaming headset, the FORCE H3X. This set of cans looks sleek, is lightweight, versatile, and reasonably priced at about $100. But what about performance? Indeed, this is where headsets make (or lose) their reputations, so let’s take a closer look and see just how well the Gigabyte FORCE H3X gaming headset performs.
