While some of the Fortnite players are just in it for the dancing, dedicated Fortnite players are refining their game. If you’re a Fortnite player who’s playing to win, you’ll need to optimize your Fortnite experience with a premium audio setup.
With patch 4.2 earlier this year and nearly every patch since, Epic Games made it clear that they are going to be investing into improving Fortnite’s directional audio, allowing players to better identify where enemies are via audio clues. As the game evolves, having the right headphones, and the right mic, will become critical to success.
Patch Notes: To help differentiate between above/below footstep sounds we've added an additional layer to steps that are above you based on the surface type.

Distraction free gaming
You’re in the zone, your squad is perfectly synchronized, everything is going right and then...is that a dog barking? Or maybe it’s the sound of “Popcorn” as your teammate gets text after text. Perhaps the annoying sound is coming from your room -- whether that’s keyboard clacking or someone shouting at you to "Stop. Playing. Fortnite." The last thing you and your team want is the outside world creeping in. To solve this you need quality, comfortable, closed back headphones that can reduce the noise so you can concentrate and a mic that can do the same for all your teammates. That’s why we make the ModMic, a premium noise canceling microphone that attaches to any pair of headphones, instantly turning it into the ultimate headset. In short, pair the best noise reducing headphones with the best noise reducing mic for distraction free gaming!

Take your game seriously
We’re not suggesting you go out and buy (or ask for) all of the most expensive equipment on the market, but a few well placed dollars can give you a competitive edge. Gaming headsets produce inferior directional sound, which means pinpointing enemy locations is tough. Meanwhile, a low quality mic reduces response times of your teammates. If they can’t quickly and easily understand you, their ability to react is slowed. Don’t buy into the hype, and overspend on features that don’t work, like virtual surround sound, or ridiculous LED lights on your ears. Simple, high quality headphones and a premium mic are all you need, and you don’t have to break the bank.
