Crazy expensive official Black Ops 2 headset is crazy good

Turtle Beach has revealed the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 'Tango' gaming headset, a prohibitively expensive pair of cans that will definitely take your first-person shooting experience to the next unecessary level, but might make you look a bit of an ostentatious git.

Those that manage to scrape together the $300 asking price, and silence whatever dissenting voice of responsibility is trying to talk them out of buying one, will get a very capable device.

The Tango model is pre-loaded with custom audio presets designed by Treyarch which can be configured and personalized to optimize game, chat and mic audio for different situations. It has voice prompts recorded by the Black Ops 2 voice actors, who will announce when the headset is powering on, pairing, battery is low, and more and it's got 2.4/5 GHz Dual-Band Wi-Fi and dual-pairing Bluetooth, so you can answer mobile phone calls or listen to streaming music while gaming.

On top of that it'll let you morph your voice from "deep lows to screeching highs" for optimal trolling possibilities, allow you to chat wirelessly on Xbox 360 or PS3 and deliver all the gunfire and explosion noise you love directly into your ears with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound.

Again, at $300 it's ludicrious expensive and over-the-top in every conceivable way. I must have it.
