Introduced at CES, the G4ME One and G4ME Zero headsets aim to be top tier options for PC, Mac, and PS4 gamers. Unfortunately there is no Xbox One support (due to Microsoft’s strict rules on third-party peripherals, as we have seen before), and last-gen console support is also excluded.
Features of the new headsets include:
- “XXL” ear pads for comfortable over-ear wear
- Noise canceling microphone filters out everything but your voice
- “Intuitive mute” triggers when microphone is swiveled up
The difference between the two headsets is threefold. First, the G4ME One is open-back (wider soundstage at the expense of sound leakage), while the G4ME Zero is closed-back (narrower soundstage but isolates the noise). Also, the ear pads are different: the G4ME One has velvet pads while the G4ME Zero uses memory foam pads. Lastly, the G4ME Zero is collapsible, meaning it can be folded up flat for portability.
Note that you may need a combo audio adapter because these headsets have 2 plugs: a microphone out, and an audio in. For the PS4, you will definitely need one.
