In review: SCUF H1 Gaming Headset

This year, I’ve been all about the headphones. This is quite a change from using an inexpensive wired headset from my phone on the laptop for calls, through various ANC Bluetooth headphones (such as this one) and now sort of full circle, with a wired headset that is worlds better than the one I was given at the office. Enter the SCUF H1.
