Review: SteelSeries H Wireless Headset

Wireless headphones can be pretty expensive, but they can also be pretty damn convenient. Sometimes I don't feel like fumbling with wires, as it helps keep my setup clean, and the ability to wander around within a limited distance helps kee...   read

Review: SteelSeries Siberia Elite Gaming Headset

PS4: Your headsets won't work at launch, some not at all

This is a PS4 PSA. Like the Xbox One, the PS4's compatibility with existing headsets leaves a lot to be desired. Both consoles come with a fully functional headset, mind, but that's little consolation for those with expensive gaming headset...   read
