Razer makes some pretty awesome looking PC gear and here comes another one in their stable. Here's the Battlefield 3 Razer Blackshark Collector's Edition Gaming Headset
, modeled after aviation style headsets.
As the name implies, it's got the Battlefield 3 branding and the stereo headset's style is pretty unique. 40mm neodymium drivers are in each ear cup for high quality sound. The boom mic is also detachable so you can keep it out of the way when not in use.
I have to say, the design and coloring look pretty slick. They are certainly unique in style for gaming headphones.
You'll be able to pick a pair up in July for $129.99.
