The right gaming gear can make or break your gaming experience. Players need the best tech and specs to usher them to victory. From a crisp and clear headset to a high-quality screen, total immersion is the goal. But with so many gaming products out there, it can be hard to know which ones are right for you and your battle station. Luckily, on this episode of Game On, host DJ Steph (@djstephcakes) chats with gaming journalist, REDinFamy (@redinfamy) to discuss her favorite products for at-home gaming. 

All great gaming rigs need a comfortable chair. The GTRACING Gaming Chair “has strong metal frames for a much more comfortable seated position, keeping you relaxed after long hours of game or work,” explains DJ Steph. “You have to be comfortable at all times,” concurs REDinFamy. “Your chair is important.”

Another gaming battle station must-have is an immersive soundbar. The Sony HT-G700: 3.1CH Dolby Atmos/DTS:X Soundbar with Bluetooth Technology has “multiple easy connections, so you can enjoy all your media,” says DJ Steph. The soundbar also has different sound modes, allowing you to customize your listening experience depending on the game you’re playing. 

Of course, gamers can’t be totally immersed in their battles without a great pair of headphones. “To me, that’s one of the most important things, because I really want to hear everything,” says REDinFamy. DJ Steph recommends the BENGOO Stereo Pro Gaming Headset because it’s “multi-platform compatible [and] can pick up sounds with great sensitivity, and remove the noise.”

But what’s immersive gaming without a crisp, clear picture? A high-quality TV, like the 65-inch Class QN900A Samsung Neo Series QLED 8K TV will have you noticing details in the background of your favorite game that you’ve never seen before. It offers a precise picture where colors come to life. 

Now with your gaming gear secured, wouldn’t it be great to control each piece of equipment from one spot? The Logitech Harmony Elite Remote Control, Hub and App lets you do just that! It makes your life a lot easier by allowing you to dump all your remotes and bring all your devices into one place. It’s sleek and easy to use, and connects with Alexa and voice assistant to boot. 

With these products helping you level up your gaming rig, your battle station will be unbeatable.
