Razer Reveals $60 Electra Gaming Headset

New headphones? From Razer? Now, that's no surprise these days, as the company is quickly becoming the go-to rival for Turtle Beach in the gaming headset department. The latest set, the Electra, aren't as fancy as some of the company's other headset offerings, but they are great for gamers on a budget.

The Electra headphones are designed to deliver more bass than usual (explosions!), and the thick earcups should provide plenty of comfort even during long gaming sessions. Buyers also get replacement sound-isolating leatherette ear cushions, flexible headband structure / snug-fit ear cup, a detachable rubber sheathed cable and a detachable inline microphone audio cable.

The headphones are coming this October for $59.99.
