A wireless headset from Logitech has been announced today, the H760 is $99.99 and has a built-in equalizer for optimizing sound just the way you like it. I’m a little disappointed that it’s not Bluetooth and uses a 2.4 GHz RF dongle to transmit back and forth to your computer, you are still getting 48 kHz audio and 40 feet range, but I like to complain.

It consists of a large bubble window made of 3 ¼-inch thick acrylic that encapsulates two passengers allowing them to travel to the depth of 0.05 leagues under the sea (or 1,000 feet). The sub is equipped with batteries to power a 3-horsepower vertical/translational thruster for six-hours of deep sea exploration. Propulsion is only 3-hp, so don’t expect to do any underwater covert ops with this thing
