If you need a headset for online gaming, there are plenty to choose from. But if you already have a pair of audiophile headphones that you love, you know how hard it is for most gaming headsets to match up in terms of sound quality, especially for music. That’s where the Antlion ModMic Wireless comes in: it’s a small, magnetic boom microphone that attaches to any pair of headphones.
This isn’t Antlion’s first foray into modular microphones—the wired ModMic 5 is still available for $70 on Amazon, as is the older and cheaper ModMic 4 (Review) for those who want a budget option. But while those versions require you to plug the ModMic into a 3.5mm jack on your PC—which can be annoying, since you’ll end up with two cables coming out of your headphones—the $120 ModMic Wireless (See it on Amazon) uses a USB receiver to keep your setup a little cleaner. As a result, it works with PCs, Macs, and the PlayStation 4, but not Xbox—for that, you’ll need one of the 3.5mm wired options.
