Hello. My name is Koopatroopa, and we’re here with another BlueStacks Streamer Academy. We’re going to be talking about the best headphones you can use for streaming.
Well, let’s talk about the ones that I have, that I’ve kind of evolved into over the years. The DT 770 Pro. These have to be some of the best, most comfortable headphones you will ever put on and enjoy. Oh man, now it’s weird, because I can hear myself because I’m talking into my mic. But these bad boys, super comfy, very nice.
However, there’s a lot of different options that you have as a content creator, and it kind of depends, too. Do you want to do an all-in-one setup like buying a pair of headphones like these Corsair’s where the mic is kind of built into the headphones? Or do you want to go the route where you have a standalone microphone, and you’re going to have to pick a pair of headphones out to listen to the music that your audience is going to hear as well?
We’ll talk about a few choices, and I guess we’ll start with the basics. Now, if you’re looking at getting a Logitech pair of headphones that aren’t too expensive, the G430 is actually the first headphones I ever used when streaming. If you see some of my very first Twitch streams, this is the pair that I wore. Now, while the voice quality isn’t the best and over time it wasn’t too comfortable on the top part of my head, it still got the job done, and I was able to get partnered on Twitch with these. It’s living proof that you don’t need to have the very best piece of equipment in order to maybe reach what your goal is with either your Twitch channel or your YouTube.
If you want to upgrade, the new Logitech G633, while it might look like some sort of headset from the future, these bad boys are one of the top out, one of the top headsets that you can buy. Really the only con with a headset like these, where you’re getting into 7.1 surround sound, voice modulation, all these other types of effects, is that they’re going to be a little pricey.
If you notice on these ones, they have a very large muff for the ear. These are going to be the ones that are going to be a lot more comfortable and versatile depending on the size of your ears which, if you’re going to be wearing them for a long period of time, will be a lot easier for you and on the strain on your head when you’re broadcasting for long periods of time. So make sure you take that into consideration when you’re buying your first headphone.
Another style of headphones, which actually works really well if you have them available, these Bose earbuds, I’ve actually used these periodically. I use these just for working out, but you can actually use these for streaming, too. And they work quite well depending on what you’re trying to do, or if you’re on the go, or if you just have something simple, or if you’re on a budget and you just kind of want to maybe buy a pair of headphones for working out but then also use them for streaming, these guys are great.
And by far, hands down, these are the best earbuds I’ve ever used. You can put these in your ear, and you could do a back flip and they’re not going to just fall out like some of the other ones that I’ve tried. So if you’re going to invest in earbuds, these are probably ones I would consider buying.
If you’re really just looking to buy a pair of headphones, if you already have a mic, I would seriously consider getting the Buyer Dynamics. These guys have been in the industry for sound for many years, and they really know what they’re doing. You can pick these up either on Amazon or your local Guitar Center.
When I had bought these, I went to Guitar Center to pick up an audio interface, and the guy said, “Hey, you want a pair of headphones that are on sale?” They were only 50 bucks. $50. These are up to like $200 or $150 when you’re buying them online, which is crazy, so don’t be afraid to check your local audio stores. And you might be able to find a good deal on them without even having to pay shipping costs or wait if you’re going to be buying them from Amazon or Best Buy or whatever website that you shop from.
But these ones are very comfortable. I can stream for 24 hours straight while wearing these, and I have no issues. Ten of 10. Would do again. These guys are great.
Otherwise, that should be it with this video when it comes to best streaming headphones. Like I said, nothing wrong with a pair like these where it’s kind of like an all-in-one, but just be careful that you do get large enough muffs so it is comfortable for long periods of time. And then just kind of weigh your options and see what’s best for you.
Hope this was an informative video with BlueStacks Streamer Academy. We’ll see you in the next video.
