October 14, 2011
Communication is key, whether you're on the field, in the gym or playing video games with your buddies. Being unable to trade information makes it difficult to accomplish your goals, both online and in the real world. The ability to communicate with your teammates helps you succeed, regardless of the environment.
A comfortable headset can help gamers improve communication. You'll be able to stay in the game longer and share your thoughts more clearly.
Just in time for your holiday wishlist, Sony has released the official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset ($100), and it's a great fit for athletes who like to unwind with online gaming. It comes complete with 7.1 digital surround sound, a retractable microphone and easy-to-reach volume and mute buttons, activated with the touch of a finger. You'll see headset updates on screen as they happen, so you can keep track of who's talking trash.
The oversized ear pads should appeal to gamers who like to settle in for long sessions in front of a PS3; and wireless compatibility means you don't have to sit directly in front of the TV when you play. It's also a great product if you need to keep the noise down—just pop on your headset and immerse yourself in the action.
