As always, putting this out there to see if anyone has any thoughts...
I am a chronic migraine sufferer, and thus cannot wear on or around ear headsets.
The pressure on my ears and surrounding area can trigger my migraines.
The best i've found is the Logitech ClearChat Comfort Wireless, but even they after 2 hours of gaming can be uncomfortable and trigger headaches.
However, I've found my in-ear (canal) bluetooth headsets for my mobile never give me triggered headaches and migraines.
My favourites are the Skullcandy Ink'd Wireless. I have more expensive pairs (i.e. Sol Republic Shadow Wireless), but these have decent bass and are very comfortable for long periods of use.
So I thought to myself why don't I pair these with my PC and use them as a headset for gaming, reducing my risk of getting heaches and migraines.
It turns out, as a PC headset, bluetooth isn't the be-all and end-all...
When I turn the mic/coms part of the headset on in the windows 10 audio settings, it drops the sound quality to almost am radio-like - very tinny.
If the bluetooth headset is switched to pure headphone, the quality jumps back up to awesome.
Temporarily i'm using the headset in headphone mode and using my mic on the webcam above the monitor for voice input.
This is OK but not ideal, I can't walk around continuing to chat with other gamers.
After much research, it seems this is a standard thing with bluetooth as a means for keeping the bandwidth requirements low.
i.e. when talking on the phone, the background music is usually turned off or restricted, allowing more bandwidth for voice quality.
Apparently this'll all be fixed up in Bluetooth V5.
It makes me wonder how bluetooth headsets for PC work this all out? (such as the logitech H800)
Anyway, after all this I was wondering what other people have done if they use in-ear (canal) wireless headset for gaming on PC?
Is there RF versions? (not bluetooth)
Is there something I'm missing that allows better quality without compromise?
At the end of the day, I must have in-ear type headset, but want the quality too.
