You’ve probably never heard of Plugable. They’re a hardware manufacturer best known for their USB docking stations—the little USB-A connector is even their logo. But they’ve recently made a strong push into gaming peripherals under the brand Plugable Performance. Their first headset, the wired HS53 (See it at Amazon), represents a bold take on the category. Their vision: Make a great, no-frills gaming headset. Soup up the critical parts, and strip everything else away. Then sell it at an unbelievably low price—in this case, a meager $44.95.
