The best overall gaming headset may continue to be the SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro, but it just got a stunning new rival that gives audiophiles reason to think twice. The Audeze Maxwell (available at Amazon) is a brilliant upgrade to Audeze’s earlier Penrose and Mobius headsets, continuing to offer exceptional audio over a wireless connection in a revamped design. It has huge battery life, extensive connectivity, and a great—if heavy—build. For folks who prefer pristine sound to active noise cancellation, this may be the best yet.
