As video games grew into the biggest form of entertainment on the planet, they inevitably also grew in sophistication. While graphics may be the most apparent aspect of gaming, sound plays an equally important part in every genre. Action games require keen situational and directional awareness generated by sonic clues. Narrative-driven titles have lush soundtracks to convey emotions and empower stories. Grand strategy games use countless sound effects to let players know what’s going on. With poor sound, you miss out not just on experiences but on the ability to enjoy games at all. And of course, professional multiplayer gamers will tell you that without good sound winning becomes unlikely.
Monitors like the BenQ EX2780Q and EW3280U feature immersive 2.1 audio that does justice to all the hard work sound development teams put into each game, and of course into movies and TV shows. With the latter, good sound makes all the difference. Watch a movie or a show on a monitor with tinny speakers and you may not even understand what characters are saying, let alone get the nuances of the soundtrack. Enjoy the same content on a monitor with finely-tuned, powerful sound and new layers of meaning come to life.
And of course all modern gaming and entertainment monitors ship with headphone outs for you to keep things considerate. There’s no need to bother anyone with loud sound, so just plug in your favorite headset whenever required.
