The rules for this week are: Vote for which type of audio solution you usually use when gaming. Share why you use that audio solution in the comments below. My answer: I use speakers most of the time since it feels more natural to me. That is, unless I'm playing a competitive game such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive where I need to hear every sound accurately. My audio setup is as follows: Speakers: Bose Companion 2 Series III Earbuds: Bose IE2 The Bose Companion speakers are good, although I miss the heavy bass of my Logitech Z623 setup. Unfortunately, those speakers failed after three years of use, and I decided that I wanted to ditch the bass to minimize my setup. In terms of the Bose IE2's, I use them for hours a day whether I'm at the gym, watching HBO, or just kicking back. It's not even that I'm a big Bose fan, I just can't find another pair of high quality headphones that don't seal and isolate the noise. While that style of earbud is better for audio quality, I don't like to be detached from my environment. Which do you prefer?
