I never purchased a headset based on colors! It has always been on sheer performance and sound quality. Arctic Camo and part of 70 color options for gamers, what a bunch of nonsense. But the cheap price point for an Artic experience I guess appeals to a lot of kids along with RGB blink to perhaps enhance the performance of other associated hardware. Of course this is good $$$ news for Turtle Beach as they do not improve on their existing product lines, but in many instances just simply slapping another coat of paint on their products. I actually overheard a bunch of high school kids asking a 'computer show' seller if RGB will improve the temperature of a AIO. It was the answer which made me turned around towards the dealer who vigorously shook his head and said: "Oh yes it has always been like this. No AIO purchase should ever be made without RGB."

Yes I'd love to blend in AND listen to my fire mixtape to keep me warm in the middle of the arctic.

I will never again buy a headset with that cheap plastic headband. The one on my last Turtle Beach headset broke where the headband connects to the speaker. You can tell where it will snap on these just by looking at that picture. You can't be careful enough with it, like it's designed to break.
