Can you imagine being a professional gamer? The fame, the money, the groupies… OK, so maybe the groupies wouldn’t be so hot, but still, that job would roundly slay every other possible profession. And all you’d need to bring to work would be a controller and a headset. Perhaps this one? The Level_10 M Headset is equipped with a 40mm driver unit and embedded with Tt eSPORTS’ most advanced acoustic engineering; the result gives you the ability to detect sounds at 10K frequency – virtually undetectable by human ears , which is what we assume you have. Plus the air-Through Ventilation System means your ears won’t sweat as much, because sweaty ears will result in an ever lesser quality groupie. ::shudder::

Gaming headsets often tout their ability to let you hear enemy footsteps behind you, a key feature that can do wonders for your Kill/Death ratio. But Turtle Beach’s Seven series headsets take game audio so seriously, I wouldn’t be surprised if you can hear the footsteps of the tens of thousands of insects on the ground beneath you. There are three models in the new line, and the XP Seven ($279) and Z Seven ($249) both come with Audio Control Units for adjusting even the most minute details of the audio. Pitter patter pitter patter pitter patter SQUASH! Yeah, OK, maybe you will wanna dial down the ISR (Insect Step Ratio).

Amazing sound. Superior comfort. Intense Gaming. That’s what the Vengeance 1300 Analog Gaming Headset claims to deliver for $80. The new Vengeance 1300 features dual 3.5mm audio and microphone connectors, a match made in heaven for high-end soundcards. Sick of gaming headset distortion? The 1300’s immense 50mm drivers work to reduce this annoying distraction, so you get a more accurate, crisp audio experience. What about comfort? You probably spend hours perfecting your game, so you best be comfortable while doing it, right? The extra wide memory foam ear cup deliver great sound and comfort while the synthetic leather covers provide a secure fit without pinching. Finally, the closed-back design helps to eliminate background noise while the super-sized volume and microphone controller is easy to manipulate, so you can stay focused on the game and your opponent. Eye of the tiger, baby. Eye of the tiger.
