Astro A40 + Mixamp for complete audio control

Kelly Kelley, aka Mrs. Violence, swears by her gaming gadgets. As a professional gamer and winner of The Controller (which aired on CNET sister site GameSpot), she's donning the best equipment her $25,000 prize money could buy.

When it comes to playing Battlefield 3 on the Xbox, she immediately turns to her Astro A40 headphones and Mixamp. With the Mixamp in place, the master volume, game volume, and chat volume can be adjusted independently.
