Blue Microphones Whiteout Yeti gaming microphone
The popular Yeti USB microphone has been given a clean makeover for streamers and YouTubers.
Blue Microphones' peripheral includes a number of built-in features suitable for those looking to record commentary over gameplay.
These include direct controls for microphone gain, allowing users to adjust the mic's sensitivity so that additional room noise is eliminated.
An integrated headphone jack and volume control also make the product useful for podcasters, so that they can monitor their voice without any latency to ensure a good recording.
Plus, an instant mute button can be used to avoid noises from sneezing or coughing.
The Whiteout Yeti is built with premium condenser capsules, and boasts four different pattern settings for recording vocals, instruments, podcasts and streaming games.
The Yeti works with both PC and Mac without the need for drivers. It can be plugged directly into a PS4, or combined with a game capture device from Hauppauge or Elgato for use on Xbox One.

PS4 In-ear Stereo Headset
Sony has launched a new premium headset for PS4 owners.
The In-ear Stereo Headset can plug straight into the DualShock 4 controller to provide both game audio and chat via an integrated microphone.
Audio is provided by 13mm speakers with deep bass, as well as the noise-cancelling AudioShield technology, which stops the intrusion of ambient sound.
AudioShield lasts for around 15 hours ona single charge – the rechargable battery can be powered back via the included USB cable.
In-line controls offer a microphone mute switch, a call button and plus and minus volume buttons. Users can use the headset with a smartphone to take phone calls, or with any other standard headphone jack for audio.
Small, medium and large interchangeable ear-tips are included to offer players increased comfort, with the earbuds providing an alternative to large over-ear headsets.
The blue cable is lightweight for portability, and is made of woven fabric for improved durability inside and outside of the home.
Accompanying the headset is a pouch, which can be used to store and carry the headset when not in use.
Release Date: December 4th
