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.

So to battle migraines, fatigue and other screen-related ailments, Kelley turns to her Gunnars, which you can see her wearing throughout the competition.
