My Cyber Snipa SOnar 5.1 Headset is so powerful that I believe I can feel by brain vibrating when I turn it up. For another company to come along and try to take the top position away from them will be a feat I look forward to. The thing about the Sonar is that it’s only PC, I would love to have just one headset for everything and it looks like the X-Wave could be the new champion.
TekNmotion, manufacturer of advanced gaming gear, today announced two new gaming headsets for PC and video gaming enthusiasts.
The PulseWave 2 PC Gaming Headset
