Gaming Mice

Best Performance – SteelSeries Prime Wireless

 

SteelSeries Prime 1

The SteelSeries Prime series of pro gaming mice are truly the pinnacle of gaming technology. The accuracy, light weight, compatibility and customization are everything you could hope for in a gaming mouse.

Next up in our holiday gift guide is another incredible product from ROCCAT, one of the most exciting peripheral accessory companies around. The ROCCAT Kone Pro is another ultra-lightweight gaming mouse that earns as many points for substance as it does for style. This mouse has a better fit in your palm than almost any other, and its solid construction and customizable DPI settings put it in contention with the best of all gaming mice.

Standalone Microphones

Best Performance – ROCCAT Torch Microphone

 

Torch 2 

The ROCCAT Torch might be the biggest surprise for us on this list. To be honest, before we had the chance to try it, we did not have the same expectations as we would have for a yeti or quadcast, however the Torch absolutely blew us out of the water with its superior sound quality, enhanced capabilities including the gesture-based muting (that’s right, just wave your hand over the mic and you are instantly muted) as well as direct throughput for a microphone. This mic also has adaptive lighting so you know exactly when your microphone is being heard by others. If you are looking for a standalone mic for yourself or others you cannot go wrong with this one!

Best Value – Neat Skyline

The Neat Skyline microphone serves primarily as a professional, conference microphone and it certainly has the professional grade audio quality to back up that title. We have found, in our experience, that it serves just as well in your gaming setups. While it may lack some of the bells and whistles that make something like the ROCCAT Torch truly exceptional, this is a very solid standalone mic to pair with a beginning stream setup or even to upgrade a pure gaming rig.
