Counter-Strike Headsets Friday, July 5, 2003 - 1:49pm EST    


VALVe have teamed up with Plantronics to bring you Counter-Strike™ Headsets for Voice Communication. The specially created headsets do actually look pretty decent. Here a quote from the press release:

Valve, creators of Counter-Strike and Half-Life(R), and Plantronics, a leading manufacturer of computer headsets, today unveiled a custom Counter-Strike headset. Based on the Plantronics' popular DSP-500, this plug-and-play USB headset features DSP technology and Counter-Strike's distinctive branding. Generating over 4.5 billion player minutes per month, Counter-Strike is the number 1 online action game in the world.

You can find the headset right here (top one) as well as all the other available Plantronics headsets, including the original DSP-500 PC Headset. For me it seems the only difference is the colour and the adition of a few 'Counter-Strike logos', however the DSP-500 are a good headset so it doesn't surprise me VALVe chose this for their marketing. Another reason this interested me was that if VALVe are expanding CS merchandise then there must be some form of long term future planned for Counter-Strike, in what form however remains to be seen.
