If you want a more plush headset than either set of earcups can provide, you need to look to the wired Turtle Beach Elite Pro Tournament ; it's the cushiest one we've tested. The right earcup holds all of the A50's controls. A port sits on the bottom edge of the earcup, along with a single contact connector for charging.
By Nic Vargus I hate wires more than any other facet of modern technology. They tangle, bundle, and uglify even the prettiest technologies. They are the anchors of the digital age, and they are awful. That's why I'll take wireless - with all it's intricacies and hiccups - anytime I can get it. I use a wireless mouse, buy speakers that are AirPlay compatible, and opt for induction charging whenever possible.
