Gears Of Wars 3 Gets Its Own Damn Throat Mic And Headsets

When the guy on the other side of your multiplayer game runs a chainsaw attachment for the umpteenth time, you're going to want to make sure he hears what you call his mother clearly and succinctly. Mad Catz's Gears of War 3 audio range is here to help.

In preparation for the release of Gears 3 later this year, Mad Catz slaps the game's logo on a trio of high performance audio devices and calls it a product line. There's the Tritton Gears of War 3 Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound Headset, featuring $US180 worth of controls much more complicated than I'm used to using with my Xbox 360.

For something a little less complicated and expensive, there's the $US99 Tritton Gears of War 3 Performance Stereo Gaming Headset, which still features a great deal of plugs and adaptors but doesn't require a base station.

My personal favourite of the three, however, is the Gears of War 3 throat communicator, because it only costs $US29.99 and has sproingy red wires. I'm a big fan of all things sproingy.

"Gears of War 3 is one of the most anticipated titles arriving for holiday 2011, surpassing 1 million pre-orders to date," said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive. "We are convinced that gamers will appreciate the competitive advantage achieved via our high-quality audio products and that the range will be highly sought out this holiday season."

And the logo. They'll love the logo.


    hmm... very costly... I'll just go with the throat mic instead.

    Im so glad to be a wirless ps3 user.
    I dont know how people game with so many god damn wires.

      +1 to that.
      although i do use a turtle beach px5 headset. completely wireless and a dream to use. using it with a 360 is a real pain in the ass. cords dangling everywhere and choking me half to death.

        Natural selection at work, clearly.

        Its one cord lol

        XBA Bluetooth Adapter is now available so wireless for Xbox too.

        My wireless TB X31 works perfectly well with my XB-360.

      Well actually, for pretty much every generation before this... we just dealt with it.

    I got their last throat communicator (MW2 I think) and it is terrible. Everyone said I sounded like a throat cancer victim.

    I've still got it if anyone wants it. $10
