Thought I’d start a discussion on wearing headphones while playing. Who here wears them? What do you listen to?
I recently started wearing over ear headphones during tournaments. I usually put on low volume white noise. I find that it helps me drown out distractions and get into the game more. It forces me to really focus on what’s happening. While it does lower the overall volume of the game, I can still hear call outs and important sound cues. I think it lowers the overall signal to noise ratio, especially in really noisy settings. I do sometimes have trouble hearing tilt warnings, but i have yet to have that bite me.
