We've reviewed countless headsets for video game consoles but have never come across a product that can handle more than one console at a time. This morning, Logitech unveiled a headset with the ability to wirelessly stream up to three sources.

The F540 comes with a base that accommodates inputs for two stereo RCA connections and one 1/8-inch headphone connection. Of course your game consoles will have to be tethered to this base, so if they're already wired up to a receiver for surround sound, some unplugging may be part of an initial setup.

The wireless headphones include a noise-canceling mic for voice chatting in Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games in addition to a rechargeable 10-hour battery. Also onboard are two separate volume controls: one for game sound, one for chat.

The F540 will retail for $150 when it goes on sale in October, but you can preorder a pair right now directly through Logitech. Keep it here for a full review in the coming weeks.
