Skullcandy has announced an entirely new line of headsets designed specifically for gaming.  The line was developed in partnership with industry stalwart and Skullcandy studio ASTRO Gaming, the award-winning makers of the A50, A40 and A30 pro-gaming headsets.

“Skullcandy has been delivering performance audio products with a unique perspective on action sports and music culture for years,” said Jeremy Andrus, CEO of Skullcandy.  “Gaming connects everyone we work with, from skateboarders to NBA superstars.  The authenticity and attitude of the Skullcandy brand is the driving force behind our gaming mantra, “Never Retreat, Never Surrender,” and is the inspiration for our new series of gaming headsets.  All three products were also designed and developed cooperatively with our premium gaming headset market leader, ASTRO Gaming.”

ASTRO Gaming MGS:PW Edition A30 Headset

Aaaahhhh…Words cannot adequately express my contentment with ASTRO Gaming and their insanely awesome products.  Yes, ASTRO is a client.  Yes, we at Maverick are soulless  schills.  Yet, their products remain insanely awesome in light of this seeming contradiction.

Put it this way, I use my ASTRO A40s every single day for hour after hour at work and then I turn around and use them for hour after hour of play.  Awesome!  I never leave home without my ASTRO A30s (in black) and they’ve now traveled all over the U.S., Europe, Africa and even Asia.  Still insanely awesome!

So, how does ASTRO repay my love for their products?!  By working with Konami to make a Special Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Edition ASTRO A30 complete with custom silver color and MGS speaker tags, is how!  Needless to say, I want them…and you should too.

Hit the jump for more info on the new MGS:PW-themed ASTRO A30s and an opportunity to pick up a copy of the game for only $20!
