The headset

It didn't take long for the Nintendo DS to get an official chat headset, and now the 3DS is getting its own add-on later this year.

PowerA's take on the cans features an in-line remote for controlling your music, with play/pause, previous track and next track commands accessed with a single click. It also allows voice chat for supported games, of which there currently are not very many.

The headset's set for release in Europe on 4th November for an RRP of £24.99. There's no North American date yet, but you're looking at around $29.99.

A top-notch video game experience deserves audio quality to match, and the Stereo & Chat Headset for Nintendo 3DS fits the bill. It offers great sound quality for games, music and video. One-click music control with the inline remote and a detachable mic boom put the power in your hands, and the fold-flat design lets you easily store the Stereo & Chat Headset when you're on the road. That leaves your hands free for other things - like gaming!
