We've said it before, but at this point, it bears repeating. The gaming
headset game has really cranked up of late. Razer
, Logitech and Turtle
Beach are now just three of many companies out there with great
headsets, and newcomers like ASTRO
Audio and Harman Audio are now coming
through with compelling options. This week, Harman debuted the AKG
GHS-1 headset, which is actually one of the more attractive gaming
headsets that we have seen. It won a Red Dot design award, and it's easy
to see why. Rather than being bulky and ugly, these are rather
space-age and svelte.
Harman also designed these to be extremely lightweight and comfortable
for longer gaming sessions, and the boom mic also filters out background
chatter. Passive noise reduction effectively seals out most ambient
sounds, and the in-line volume selector makes it easy to adjust volume
while in the game. We were actually pretty surprised by the $79.95 price
point; that's fairly low for a headset this attractive. It's shipping
now in three color combinations: black and orange; white and green; and camouflage and blue.
