Harman is an audio company with several notable brands under its belt, brands like AKG, Harman Kardon, and JBL. People tend to take notice when any of those brands offer something new, so this particular item should be of interest to many. Harman has announced a new portable gaming headset in the form of the AKG GHS-1. The AKG GHS-1 is designed for gamers and features Harman's innovative audio engineering and promises to bring PC gaming to a "whole new level of realism, excitement, portability, and comfort." The headset is lightweight and is designed to fold up to make it easier to carry when you're on the go. It features a boom microphone that filters background noise as well as earcups that provide some passive noise isolation, ensuring your game is all you hear. No mention was made of the size of the drivers used, but there is an inline volume control that will adjust the microphone level.

The AKG GHS-1 gaming headset will be offered in a choice of black and orange, white and green, or camoflauge and blue. It should be available now for $79.95.
