Genuinely good 3D audio? It’s hard to find in a gaming headset. And as impressive as the Mobius Audeze headset was, it was also $600. So it’s good that HyperX have debuted a headset that not only uses almost all of the same tech, while being at least $100 cheaper.

I don’t know about a “complete overhaul of traditional gaming designs and headset technologies” as touted in the PR for SteelSeries’ new Arctis line of game-centric headwear, but they sound great, mic well and are incredibly comfortable. Plus they look good on professional DOTA 2 player Suma1l, so there’s that.
