Earphones or Headphones in General Gaming Posted February 9, 2019 In-ear earphones for me. I use Sennheiser earphones and honestly have never had a problem with them. These are the same earphones that I use myself for listening to music as well. I don't see the need for me to go out and get a special gaming headset because normal earphones work pretty well. They sound good and they don't offer any disadvantages over using some big headphones that will probably get uncomfortable after a while.
