At this point, we've lost count of the number of gaming cans filling up our peripherals drawer, but they're gonna have to make a little room: our peoples over at Astro Gaming have upgraded their award-winning A40 gaming headset for 2011, and the official licensed headset of Major League Gaming looks better than ever. The 2011 Edition features several improvements over the previous unit, from a microphone that better blocks background noise to better-sealing ear cushions and more bass. If you just came up on some A40s for the holidays, though, fear not—you can opt for an upgrade kit and just add the new mic and ear cushions to your own headset. The A40 2011 Edition is available now for $199.95 (pricing on the upgrade kit to come). [Astro Blog]
