This is why having a top quality headset is one of the most important elements to winning on the virtual battlefield. Traditionally, gaming headsets have always been manufactured by gaming peripherals companies that make headsets that are either average or below average quality, but with the dearth of options from premium audiomakers, until recently there really wasn’t much of a choice.
Several years back, renowned German audio products maker Sennheiser jumped into the gaming headset market and saw such success that they now have several models of gaming [...]

The Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 now features 10-you read that right-10 discrete audio drivers (five per earcup). Each earcup contains a 40mm subwoofer, 30mm front and 20mm rear and side surround sound drivers.
Included with the Razer Tiamat 7.1 is a new audio control unit that offers speaker pass-through and audio channel management. Users can easily switch to [...]
