Steelseries have been on a roll really, pumping out a bunch of solid mice, keyboards and headsets that have all done rather well critically and commercially.

SteelSeries Arctis 5 Review – Shiny Lights For Your Ears

Damn but do I love me a good headset! Don’t get me wrong, I adore my speaker system, but there’s something awesome about slipping on a headset and tuning the outside world out, revelling in the sense of isolation that padded ear cups can provide.
