Logitech's peripheral department has been busy again, this time pushing out a game-centric trio of keyboard, headset and mouse. The Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930, Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 and the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510 are all of the opinion that more buttons are better, and as such are heavily encrusted.
Things keep sneaking out of E3. When it comes to headphones for gaming, gamers usually have their favorite already picked out. We're not sure if there are fanboys of headphones out there, but we'd be surprised if there aren't. As far as Tritton goes, it's one of the favorites out there, and touted as some of the best pieces of peripheral audio equipment by those who use them. As of right now, the AX 180 comes in a wired version, but all of that's about to change. Meet the wireless model!
Gamers will spend lots of money on gear to get the best graphics and sound for their favorite game titles. The Metal Gear Solid franchise had been around for a long time and is very popular. Fans of the series can now get a branded headset from Astro called the A30: Peace Walker Edition.
Bluetooth headsets are mostly associated - literally, in fact - with cellphones, but there are plenty of people looking to go wireless with their computers for VoIP. Plantronics' Voyager PRO UC looks like a regular headset but is designed to pair not only with your phone but your computer via a bundled USB dongle, and to maintain those connections simultaneously. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
We've been impressed with Plantronics last few Bluetooth headsets, finding the company's DSP offers a decent balance of background noise reduction while not making callers sound hopelessly artificial. What happens when Plantronics tries to do DSP on a budget, however? The new Plantronics Explorer 395 has a bargain $49.95 MRSP and, the company reckon, is ideal for first-time Bluetooth headset users. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
When your company is called Psyko Audio Labs then we guess you have to fill your press release with threatening phrases like "Psyko ushers in the dawn of audio as a weapon", but frankly we'd be happy if the distinctive Psyko 5.1 PC Gaming Headset System sounds as good as they promise. The magic, they reckon, is in the five speakers integrated into the headband - front left, center, front right, rear left and rear right - together with a subwoofer in each earphone, which basically create a miniature surround sound gaming environment around your head.

We already knew Tokyoflash were segueing into Bluetooth peripherals - in fact they asked our opinion on what exactly they should make - and the first spoils of that endeavour have gone up for sale. The massively-named Tokyoflash Kisai Escape C Wireless Bluetooth Receiver is a bulbous Bluetooth pendant that works as both a hands-free kit for your cellphone and an A2DP streamer for listening to music.
It's been a while since we've heard from BlueAnt, but the Bluetooth headset company are back with their latest headset. They reckon the BlueAnt T1 is not only rugged but provides the best wind noise reduction you'll find on the market; that's also paired with text-to-speech with voice control and A2DP compatibility for (mono) streaming of audio and GPS directions.
CeBIT 2010 isn't all about netbooks and tablets; there are peripherals there too. SteelSeries have outed their latest gaming combo, the SteelSeries 6Gv2 gaming keyboard and the SteelSeries 7H headset. The former can recognize "as many simultaneous key presses as there are keys on the keyboard" for those particularly hectic late-night gaming sessions, while the latter gets closed ear-cups each with a 50mm driver.
