We love a good headset when it comes to gaming. It has been 9 years since Alienware has produced a new gaming headset, and today is the day it breaks that trend. The new AW988 set touts 7.1 virtual sound, 2.4GHz USB wireless connectivity, up to 15 hours battery life, fold-up mic mute, and of course RGB lights that cut the battery life in half if you have those on. These can be used as a wired headset as well. These will cost around $230 and will be for sale next Monday. For that price tag, the sound is going to have to be incredible. Apparently it has some sort of "audio recon" feature as well that attempts to help you locate enemies on a minimap as well. The stream that covers some of these new accessories (a mouse too) starts at 2:30pm CDT.
