Harman didn't exactly manage to impress us that much with its most recent pair of wireless headsets, but it's now already back with something a bit different: a PC gaming headset. Available in your choice of black and orange, white and green, or camouflage and blue color combos, the headset isn't wireless, but it can be folded up for a bit of added portability, and Harman promises that the headphones will deliver "realistic, dynamic sound" while also filtering out most background noise. Sound like just the headset you've been looking for? You can grab this one right now for $80. Full press release is after the break.

STAMFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated (NYSE:HAR), today announced the launch of the new AKG® GHS-1 portable gaming headset.

"The new GHS-1 headset is designed specifically for the gamer and features our innovative audio engineering built into a distinctive, long-lasting and intuitive design for the ideal gaming experience."
