Seriously, there are very few monitors that actually have active noise-cancelling built in to help you talk to your teammates better.

The 27-inch screen has 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a 144 Hz refresh rate, and a 1 ms response time. It also supports AMD's FreeSync to reduce screen tearing and is compatible with Nvidia's G-Sync when using DisplayPort. The IPS panel supports HDR and the DCI-P3 color spectrum. The stand uses an ergonomic design, and it has VESA mounting. There's even built-in RGB LED backlighting you can customize. Connectivity options include one DisplayPort 1.2, two HDMI 2.0 ports, and two USB 3.0 ports.

The gaming features for this monitor include a tactical display with a crosshair overlay, aim stabilizer that helps minimize motion blur, and active noise-cancelling that helps you communicate with your teammates.
