1. Headsets for sublime sound effects
In a nutshell: Stay ahead of the game with crystal clear sound that always has your back
HyperX changed the game for headsets with its Cloud back in 2014. Today’s Cloud Alpha is a worthy successor.
Enjoy marathon gaming sessions in comfort with the snug fit and padded design. Hear every detail with dual chamber technology that separates the bass from mids and highs.
It works with Dolby Atmos to give you ultimate clarity on positional sound in games like Overwatch. Notice the subtle differences in volume in things like enemy footsteps. This is a headset that has truly got your back.
And for the console gamers out there… the Turtle Beach Stealth 300 has you covered for Xbox and PS4. Go straight from one to the other, if you like – it does have 30 hours of battery life after all.
2. Mechanical mice and custom keyboards
In a nutshell: Be at one with your game thanks to ultra responsive controls at your fingertips
Want to feel your game with every tap of the mouse and strike of the key? Look to the latest products from PC gaming icon Razer.
‘Mechanical switches’ can be found at the core of its BlackWidow Chroma keyboard and DeathAdder mouse. These switches deliver a more responsive, accurate and satisfying gaming experience. Plus they tend to be more robust and can keep up with you regardless of the game.
This is because each key has an individual switch and metal spring – unlike keyboards with a single sheet of rubber beneath the keys.
The BlackWidow Elite’s keys are also customisable – so you can change the volume, skip to your favourite bits of videos, or lower the screen brightness, all right from your fingertips.
What’s more, you can impress your friends by letting bursts of colour rip through the room. That’s because the Elite lights up in glowing rainbow colours – you can even sync with other BlackWidow gadgets to light up your whole gaming room.
And if you’re looking to team up with a mouse offering the highest level of accuracy, you need Razer’s DeathAdder Elite Optical Gaming Mouse. It’s uber-responsive – guaranteeing you more killstreaks than ever before.
3. Steering wheel for the real-life feel
In a nutshell: Steer yourself into the game and feel the car shake and judder as you grip the wheel
Fan of Gran Turismo or Forza Motorsports? These iconic motorsports games are great however you play. But to do them proper justice look to Logitech – legends of driving game add-ons.
Your virtual car feels just like the real thing thanks to the Driving Force G920 wheel and gearstick bundle. Put the pedal to the metal, shift through the gears as you pull out of a corner and into the home straight.
When the corners get tight, you’ll feel every judder and shake at the back end as your swing out with force feedback built in to the wheel.
Want to switch to PS4? Go with this version of the Logitech Driving Force
4. Gaming chair for playing with flair
In a nutshell: Comfortable, stable and flexible – get the chair to match your premium gaming rig
You’re focused on your gaming session. Your console or PC is delivering superb graphics at incredibly fast frame rates. Crystal-clear audio booms from your headset. You’re shouting commands down your microphone.
Old office and dining chairs aren’t designed for marathon gaming sessions. What you need is the Noble Chairs Icon. A proper gaming chair. For proper gamers.
