Grado Prestige Series SR80e
While the open-back design isn't good for noisy environments, the Grado SR80e headphones sound exceptionally good for $100 and are also comfortable to wear.
Microsoft Xbox One Media Remote
The Xbox One Media Remote is a must-have accessory that makes it much easier to accept a gaming console as the hub of your living room.
The SteelSeries Stratus is the best-feeling and most versatile iOS game controller, but it's a lot to pay for an accessory.
Logitech PowerShell Controller + Battery
Logitech's first stab at an iOS game controller nails design and feel, but lacks flexibility or extra features.
Moga Ace Power
The Moga Ace Power successfully turns an iOS 7-equipped iPhone into a full-fledged gaming handheld, and adds enough buttons to cover all bases when more games arrive to work with it.
Sony PlayStation Move Racing Wheel
Despite a couple of limitations, the Sony Move Racing Wheel performs well, delivering a good sense of steering a car in racing games, and is much easier to set up than a full racing wheel.
iCade 8-Bitty Retro Wireless Game Controller ( iOS, Android)
iCade succeeds in shrinking last year's arcade cabinet down to a clever pocket size with the 8-Bitty controller. Even though it won't work with many iOS games, the price is low enough that some people will want to buy it anyway for the novelty.
Duo Games Duo Pinball
Pinball Duo is a cute idea with little purpose for anyone, even hard-core pinball fans, especially at its high price. It's a one-trick plastic pony for one app.
Discovery Bay Games Duo Gamer Controller
The good news: the iPad has a game controller. The bad news: it only works with a few games. Meet the awkward Duo Gamer.
Ion Audio iCade Mobile
The iCade Mobile is a retro gaming oddity for the iPhone that adds physical buttons, but for a lofty $70 price. Its lack of universal compatibility, lack of analog sticks, and large size relegate it to strictly novelty status.
Nintendo 3DS Circle Pad Pro
As ugly and cumbersome as it makes the 3DS, the Circle Pad Pro is actually a great-performing accessory that improves the control range of games that it's compatible with.
Sony PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset
Attractively priced and full of great features, the PS3 Wireless Headset provides above-average sound quality and hassle-free performance.
Ear Force PX5 Programmable Headset ( with Bluetooth)
The PX5 is easily one of the best wireless surround sound gaming headsets we've ever tested. While its $250 price tag is high, the set should satisfy gamers for years to come. The software, however, won't work with Macs.
Razer Onza Tournament Edition
With its bevy of forward-thinking features and customization options, the Razer Onza Tournament Edition is easily one of the best third-party Xbox 360 controllers we've ever used.
Nyko Raven ( Alternative)
Though the Nyko Raven PS3 controller provides an Xbox 360 controller configuration for the PS3, its unresponsive D-pad and bulky feel will have you looking elsewhere.
Astro A40 Wireless System
While a bit pricey, the Astro A40 Wireless System is easily one of the best virtual surround-sound gaming headset systems we've ever tested.
Bose Bluetooth Headset
The Bose Bluetooth Headset might be a stylish headset with a recognizable brand, but its lack of features and average performance do not fit its high price tag.
Xbox 360 Wireless Controller w/Transforming D-Pad and Play and Charge Kit
The Xbox 360 Wireless Controller with Transforming D-pad is a must-have for 360 gamers who demand a precise D-pad response.
Nintendo Wii Remote Plus ( Pink)
For families and lovers of casual games, the still-affordable Wii represents the best console bundle value of the holiday season in terms of dollars spent; however, the Wii's getting long in the tooth, and other game consoles offer more entertainment options and functionality for their higher price tags.
With its impressive body tracking and unique, controller-free experience, Kinect is great for casual gaming parties and workouts--assuming you have enough room to play it.
Logitech F540 Wireless Headset
Though it only supports analog stereo audio, the Logitech F540's multisystem support and impressive sound quality make it ideal for gaming and any other source you can throw at it.

The Ultrasone HFI-680 headphones' abundant bass power, forgiving treble, and isolation from external noise should make these an attractive choice for some buyers.

The Thinksound TS02 + Mic earphones are an excellent choice for music phone users who demand an incredible amount of bass and a compact, lightweight form factor.
Nyko Wand+ ( Clear)
Nyko once again beats Nintendo to the punch by offering a two-in-one remote/MotionPlus design at the same price as an original Nintendo Wii remote controller.
Sony PlayStation 3 Move Starter Bundle Kit
Though it provides some of the best motion control we've seen in games, a few issues and a lackluster launch library may have you waiting to buy the PlayStation Move.
Neoya Wii2HDMI ( converter for Wii console)
Though it won't improve the picture quality had on a current Wii component connection, the Wii2HDMI adapter successfully carries audio and video over a single HDMI signal.
Nyko Nintendo Wii TypePad Pro
As the first QWERTY Wii accessory we've seen, the Nyko TypePad Pro works well; however, we're not sure it's useful enough to justify its purchase.
Nyko SpeakerCom 360 ( Black)
The Nyko SpeakerCom 360 is a great idea on paper, but is seriously flawed in its actual performance.
Turtle Beach Ear Force PX21 Universal Gaming Headset
The Ear Force P21 headset may not support surround sound, but it is a solid stereo headset for voice chatting in Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games.
The Thinksound Rain 9mm headphones offer clean, open sound, but their bass response isn't up to snuff for many genres of music. These 'buds are best-suited for lovers of classical, oldies, and folk music.
