Headset Roundup December 2013

Over the past few months we have seen a wide range of headsets released by the significant players in that market. In fact a busy November/December is becoming a regular busy release period for headset manufacturers and our coverage began with some "standard" models like the Dracco Captain from Tt eSports, aimed at the enthusiast gamer and continued on through the unique and impressive SoundBlaster Evo. But which would we choose for our own use?

Here we round up some of the best headsets of the last few months, if you are a gamer, mobile user, console enthusiast or just want a headset that’s good for everything then this is the place to start.

1) Best for Console: Turtle Beach PX4
