Wings have gone all out with aesthetics on the Phantom 860, and you also have customisable lights patterns on the case and buds. It will definitely catch eyeballs, that’s for sure. The earphones come with app support via the Wings Sync app where you adjust EQ, touch controls, the afformentioned light patterns and more. These TWS earphones also come with a low latency mode that goes down to 40 ms and Bluetooth 5.3 support.

Why gaming earphones over regular earphones?

Most gaming earphones come with features specifically designed for gamers. This usually includes things like a decent mic, and in the case of wireless earphones, a low latency mode, among other things. Higher-end gaming headphones can be just as good as premium headphones in terms of sound quality.

Is wired earphones better for gaming?

In general, competitive gamers prefer wired earphones over wireless earphones that connect over Bluetooth. This is primarily because wireless Bluetooth earphones tend to have a higher latency, meaning there will be a slight delay between the action and you hearing the audio. This delay is usually very miniscule, but can make a difference in fast-paced competitive games.

Are gaming earphones better or headphones?

Both have benefits. Gaming earphones take up a lot less space as compared to gaming headphones. They’re also much easier to carry around, and you’re not completely shut off from the outside world when you use gaming earphones. Gaming headphones on the other hand are much bulkier but they also tend to provide better audio quality. They also have better isolation, shutting off sounds from the outside, and also doing a better job of preventing your gaming sounds from bleeding out to the world.
