We play with "Prometheus" or why you need a good microphone.

You're in the game. You are waiting for the rest of the team. The team is ready, everyone has confirmed their presence. Map loading screen - you already know it by heart, you know where, what and how you will be doing when everything starts. You run at the last minute for a drink and a snack, because you know it's going to be a long game.

The fact that in multiplayer games good communication is essential, no one needs to be explained. Clear and clear messages from team members will be crucial to provide support and quickly locate the enemy. Or - as in Among us - explain to the other team members that you are not the imposter. Be clear about who it is and why.

The microphone comes into play.

This is where the microphone comes into play, the high quality of which is essential to have a good time with friends. Depending on the technology used, the microphones in the headphones differ significantly. This is evident primarily in the sound quality. The timbre of the voice that our friends know will be different from the one finally heard after it "passes" through the microphone. But understanding the messages is of the greatest importance here. And whether the voice is clear or not is decided by a good microphone in the headphones.

What does the Volcano Prometheus microphone sound like? You can find a sound sample thanks to the PurePC editorial office, where the headphones were thoroughly tested:


Depending on the technological solutions used, the microphone can be placed on a flexible headband or a rigid structure, often hidden inside the earcup. Both solutions have their advantages, but it seems that the microphone on the soft headband is a more interesting solution. First of all, it can be conveniently and easily placed close to the mouth, which improves sound recording and at the same time positively affects the understanding of our speech. Secondly, the possibility of its arbitrary setting has a positive effect on our comfort and convenience. It is worth noting that the microphone, e.g. in the Volcano Prometheus model, is detachable. This increases the comfort of using the headphones when we do not use them, reducing (symbolically, but still) their weight.

An interesting addition is the sponge on the microphone. It aims to eliminate the sounds from the so-called. "explosive consonants" like "P" or "B", but also protects against saliva or gusts of air coming out of the mouth. The sponge on the microphone significantly improves the comfort of conversations with the team.

Therefore, if you are looking for good headphones, pay attention to the microphone. Especially if you need an interesting and affordable set for multiplayer games.
