I have reviewed every high end gaming headset on the market at this point. One of the best units I have reviewed is the Astro A40. Between the quality of the sound and the ease of use of the mixer, it hits a sweet spot of high end gaming performance.

PAX has named Astro as the official gaming headset for the year. I assume this was in exchange for sponsorship dollars, but it's still a heck of a system.
