A good headset like the HyperX Cloud Alpha or HyperX Cloud Revolver will help you hear enemy footsteps and gunfire with exceptional clarity.

This information is invaluable, and your overall survivability will increase drastically. Being able to communicate clearly is also incredibly important in PUBG, especially if you're teaming up with your friends, so the Alpha and Revolver's Discord and TeamSpeak certified microphone will ensure you never go unheard. The Cloud Alpha and Cloud Revolver are the headsets to choose if you're looking for top-tier comfort, audio quality and clear communication.
