Wireless or wired?

Recommended Posts

I'll choose wireless headsets/controllers one million times than wired ones. I don't like something that connects together that wouldn't let me have freedom of movement. I love changing positions playing games and also, I love listening to music without moving with my music player. Just keeping it some distance like 100m away from my position is what I enjoy when I'm at home.

Honestly, wireless is preferable, but wired is probably more reliable and lasts longer. I've had many issues with wireless controllers in the past, and it usually was due to the way you charge them. All of my 360 controllers stopped charging at some point. It got bad that I had to keep my plug n charge cable connected at all times anyway. At that point, I'm okay with wired, because I don't usually take my controller too far anyway. I keep it by my xbox and I sit close to that when I use it anyway.

Considering being a classic gamer, I play with wired controllers all the time. There were a few wireless controllers made around the N64/PS1 era, but they typically didn't work worth a shit. When I play newer systems, like PS4/5 and Xbox, the wireless ability is really nice. It gives more range of motion and isn't limiting you to a small confined area. As for headsets, I prefer using them wired. Not sure exactly why, but it's just something I do.

Wired is messy, but more reliable, while wireless is less reliable, but doesn't create a mess like wired devices do. I like wired more, because you don't usually get lag with wired, but wireless can have connection issues and lag depending on the device.

I do currently prefer wireless controllers and headsets just because the cords tend to trip you up and they're also messy but I still have no problem using wired headsets.

My issue with wired is when you forget the wire is there and trip over it and knock over something expensive...
