To put you on the same playing field as other gamers out there we’ve created a list of the top 10 best rated gaming headphones for 2012.

Overall we like the Logitech G930 as our pick for top rated headset of 2012. We’ve tried it out so be sure to check out our blog entry. It offers you incredible 7.1 sounds that will knock your socks off. If you have to multi-task while you game it’s easy to take the G930 headset into your living room, kitchen, or even upstairs while still plotting with your friends online. It’s also fun to modify your voice to one of several options that Logitech has given you.
