Headset Roundup December 2013
by HardwareHeaven - 27th 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?
Kaeyi reviewed the PX4 on the PS4 and found it to be a hugely impressive headset, which is also compatible with older machines. Is there anything better for console? We don't think so.
Surround sound. Check. Built in soundcard. Check. Speaker pass through. Check. Ability to answer phone calls through the headset when gaming. Check. Smartphone control. Check! What more could you want?
Stuart has long been using Sennheiser headsets in day to day use for this site and this new revision takes them to the next level in terms of design. This is the headset used by Eidos to create their games and if an open design isn't to your tastes then Dave Chaos reviewed the closed alternative here...
We all love wireless technology. When it is done right, as it is here by Corsair, then it serves to improve our experience. Want to keep chatting with your team/guild mates while AFK... or listen to your music library while doing housework? This is the headset for you...
