Listen (yep, we went there), who needs wall hacks when you've got jaw-droppingly good crystal-clear sound? Seriously though, we don't take high-quality audio lightly.
The speaker drivers are the round elements that many call the actual speakers. These typically come in a cone or dome shape and move back and forth to make the sound.
Describes the amount of power needed to deliver high audio quality. The most common headset impedance is 32 ohms. The higher the impedance the more accurate and vivid the sound gets.
Determines how sensitive the volume control is. Low sensitivity (86db) would require turning the knob more to increase volume whereas high sensitivity (110dB) would require less turning. In short, high sensitivity = louder volume.
The audio type refers to the output method of the headset. The better audio, the more chance you have of pinpointing your enemies exact location. The most common audio types are;
Described as true surround sound. Uses multiple small speakers (7 to be exact) at different angles to output sound. Gives a true audio sound rather than appearing to originate directly in your head.
Works by using 2 separate speakers (similar to stereo) however uses software and sound techniques which fools the brain into thinking the sound is coming from more than one direction. Perfect for pinpointing enemy footsteps on the map.
Described as advanced 7.1 surround sound. THX Spatial Audio improves upon 7.1 surround to add a realistic and immersive 360-degree audio-scape. In short it gives a more accurate and rich sound and immerses you in the gaming world around you.
Stereo audio means the headset has 2 independent channels which feeds sound to the left and right ear separately. This allows for distinct sounds to be played in either ear.
The range of bass, mids and treble the speakers can output. The first number represents the bass and the second represents the treble. 20Hz - 20,000Hz is the standard for headphones.
The audio connection refers to how the audio signal is carried to the user. Or more importantly, how we connect the headset to the PC/Console. The 2 most common connections are 3.5mm Jack and USB.
The distance you can be away from the receiver you can be and still have the headset work. This can be up to 30m for some headsets.
How long the charge in the battery lasts before needing recharged. Important for long gaming sessions.
The polar pattern of the microphone refers to it's abilities on picking up sound. The patterns most commonly used are;
Picks up sounds from all directions with equal gain. Allows for greater flexibility in sound pick up as the user can speak into any part of the microphone.
Also known as a "figure-of-eight microphone". It is known as this as it is great at picking up sound from the front and back, but poorly from the sides.
Only picks up sound with high gain from a specific side or direction of the microphone. Great for team comms as it cuts out most background noise.
Picks up sounds well from the front and sides but poorly from the rear.
Same as the cardioid microphone but have a much narrower area of sensitivity. Results in improved isolation and higher resistance to feedback. Sound rejection from the back is compromised so unwanted noises may occur such as having the mic positioned between the user and the keyboard, the clicking of the keys would be picked up by the microphone.
The frequency response is the frequency-specific output sensitivity of a microphone. It details the relative output levels of the sound/audio frequencies a mic is able to reproduce. The standard for this is 20Hz - 20,000 Hz.
The sensitivity of a microphone, put quite simply, relates to how well it picks up noise. Microphones on headsets typically range from 8 (less sensitive) to 32 (more sensitive) mV/Pa (-42 to -30 dBV/Pa). The higher the sensitivity, the easier it is for the microphone to pick up sounds.
Microphone impedance describes the electrical resistance. This is measured in Ohms, and the standard value for headsets is around the 2.2k Ohms (considered medium impedance). In short, the lower the impedance the better the sound quality output.

There are many factors that come into play when sizing your mouse, such as shape and grip style, but we've focused on the size of your hand comparitive to the mouse itself.
Length: Measure your hand from the base of your palm to the top of your middle finger.
Width: Measure from the knuckle of your thumb to the edge of your palm.
*These sizes should only be used as a guide, but we would love to hear your feedback on your own personal experience. All mouse sizes shown here at EG are based on this guide.
When you're looking to switch out your skates, you’ll need to choose replacements that fit your specific model of mouse due to each mouse having a different layout on its base where the skates are installed. The exception being brands who use the same mouse chassis for multiple models, but that will be mentioned on the skates product description.
Once you have your replacement mouse skates in hand, it's now time to remove your old ones from the base of the mouse. There are a few different methods to do this, but we’ll cover the main, most reliable method (in our opinion):
Method: Hairdryer & Spudger (removal tool)
This method involves using the hairdryer to heat up the glue underneath the mouse feet. Once the glue has been heated long enough, use a spudger (a flat plastic tool with a sharp end) or a knife to scrape underneath the feet to peel them off — be careful if using a knife! Be careful when using the hairdryer too, as you want to avoid overheating the mouse, which can cause damage to your mouse (plastic melting or warping) and also cause injury to yourself, so proceed with caution.You can use the spudger or knife on its own without using the hairdryer, especially if you're unsure of how long to heat the feet up by. This may leave traces of glue on the bottom of the mouse however, which will need to be removed before attaching the new mouse feet.
Installing your new skates
Once you have removed all the old skates from the base your mouse, give the surface a clean by using rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl). This will remove any excess adhesive that may still be present. Leave the mouse to dry, and then it's time to apply the new ones.Almost all aftermarket mouse skates will be a simple case of peeling and sticking onto the mouse, ensuring the feet are applied evenly to prevent any air bubbles from appearing.
Are you tired of your mouse slipping and sliding all over the place during intense gaming sessions? Installing mouse grip tape may be the solution you're looking for! It's a quick and easy way to improve your grip and control over your mouse.
With a little preparation and some simple steps, you can enjoy better control and performance like the pros.
The first step is to choose the grip tape that suits your preference. You can choose between a DIY sheet or a pre-cut option. If you opt for the DIY sheet, make sure to measure and cut the tape to fit your mouse's size. On the other hand, pre-cut options come in ready-to-use sizes and shapes, so you can simply peel off the backing paper and apply the tape to your mouse without the need for any cutting.
Before applying the grip tape, it is essential to clean your mouse to remove any dirt or oils that may interfere with the grip tape's adhesion. Use a soft cloth and rubbing alcohol to gently clean the surface of your mouse, taking care not to damage the coating. Make sure to remove all the dirt and oil residues, especially around the edges of your mouse.
With your DIY or pre-cut grip tape ready, it's time to apply it to your mouse. Start by peeling off the backing paper from one corner of the tape, making sure not to remove too much of the adhesive backing at once. Carefully align the tape with the edge of your mouse and begin pressing it down firmly, using a credit card or similar tool to smooth out any creases or bumps as you go. This will help ensure that the tape adheres evenly and stays in place for longer. Take your time and work carefully to achieve the best results.
Finally, once the grip tape is properly applied, use a sharp hobby knife or scissors to trim any excess grip tape from around the edges of your mouse. Trimming the edges gives your mouse a clean and finished look.
And that's it! You're now ready to take your gaming to the next level with your newly gripped mouse. Say goodbye to slipping and sliding, and hello to better control and performance.
