Such is the case with the Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero, a wireless gaming headset aimed primarily at PC players. While it's not cheap, you get what you pay for, with a premium design, strong audio performance and a comprehensive feature set with plenty of room for customisation.

Should you buy it?

PC gamers looking for a high-quality wireless headset have a lot of options to consider, and the Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero should definitely be among them. It's built like a premium headset should be, with a sturdy frame and tremendously comfortable ear cups. Audio performance is equally great, with the powerful 3D audio and the competitively-tuned Superhuman hearing feature worth the price of admission.

Top it all off with deep customisation and a solid 30-hour battery life, and the Elite Atlas Aero definitely earns its use of the "Elite" qualifier.
