Corsair HS1A Gaming Headset

titleIt’s rare to find a company that consistently hits home runs with their products, even more so in the tech industry with how quickly things change. Corsair is one of the few companies that have been consistently innovating in the industry over the past few years with introductions into PSU’s, Audio, and cooling. Because of that when they introduced their HS1A Gaming Headset a lot of people took notice, including us. Today we are going to take a listen to them and see if Corsair hit another home run or just a base hit.

Razer Ferox

titleWhen you’re travailing you are normally limited to headphones or the built in speakers on your laptop or mp3 player. It’s really no surprise that the audio quality on those speakers isn’t the best. A good pair of headphones can sound great but you may find them to be a little more uncomfortable after long use and you are limited to only one person listing at once. We have a seen a few different variations of portable speakers but typically audio quality still leaves a little to be desired. When Razer introduced their Ferox portable speakers I was a little hesitant, but excited to see what they could do in the market. Let’s bust them out and see how they perform.

For podcasters and some business people you just can’t accept anything but the best quality. Samson has a product for that core group of people called the Samson Go Mic. A USB powered high quality microphone that uses the high quality components of a studio microphone, but designed to be packed up with your notebook.

Choiix Boom Boom

frontHow many times have you tried watching a Youtube video on your laptop/netbook and have not been able to hear the audio? The itty-bitty speakers they put in most of them are about worthless. Sure, plugging in any old set of speakers will give you better sound, but do you want to lug those things around with you to the coffee shop? You might as well be "that guy" who brings the whole office and sets up shop there. Wouldn't you rather have one that slips into a side pocket of your bag and doesn't weight a ton? The Choiix Boom Boom may have a funny funny name, but it could just be the answer to your sonic woes.

SteelSeries 7H Headset

titleSteelSeries has stuck with the 5H as their flagship headset for some time now so it was kind of a surprise when they announced the 7H a few months ago. Not wasting any time I made it known multiple times that I was very interested to take a look at their newest flagship headset. It's hard not to get a little excited, we enjoyed the Siberia v2 series when we tested them and we know their 5H series has a large following as well. What could possibly follow in those large footsteps?

Ozone Strato USB Headset

titleToday I have the chance to take a look at the Strato Headset from Ozone. Previously, we took a look at their Smog during mouse week and their ground level mouse pads soon after. They obviously have a strong focus on gaming. I hope that focus carries over to the Strato headset; I plan on putting it to the test in a few too many sessions of Modern Warfare 2.

Razer Moray+

IMG_5890_lrEarly this year I had the chance to check out a new and exciting pair of ear buds from Razer called the Moray. Overall I was very happy with them but I felt that they needed more of a gaming edge coming from Razer. Not long after our review they announced the Moray+. Apparently Razer was thinking the same thing as us because the Moray+ addressed that issue specifically. Today I have a chance to take a look at the Moray+ and see how there improvements helped.

SteelSeries Siberia Full-Size headset

IMG_5630-lrIt wasn’t that long ago that I took a close look at the SteelSeries Siberia Neckband headset. My complaints almost all came from the neckband holding the headset up.

Today I have the chance to test it out, and to spice things up a little bit this one is bright red, If my wife’s excitement is any indication the Siberia Full-Size headset should be nice.

Sennheiser PC-350 Gaming Headset

IMG_5132 [lr] [lrsm]When it comes to headphones and microphones for aviation and some of the biggest names in music they have relied on Sennheiser products for years.

Gameskulls GS-1 Tactical Helmet

IMG_5312 [lr] [lrsm]Over the past few years I have reviewed a wide variety of gaming headsets. On our trip to Million Man Lan a few weeks ago I saw something that really caught my eye. A couple people where wearing helmets with built in headsets. Apparently a company called GameSkulls was showing off a couple of their first product. After trying them out myself and talking with Gus from GameSkulls my interest was definitely peaked. Before we left Gus dropped one off at my desk for me to checkout, Now I don't have to worry about being attacked by my wife while playing my games.

Tritton AXPro 5.1 Headset

img_3315lr-lrsmSome time ago we reviewed Tritton's quality headset, the AX51 5.1 Headset.  At that point I was thoroughly impressed with the set, so much so in fact, I took them to our last local party LanOC V.3.   I decided that even with the power brick as an anchor, the superior quality warranted the hassle.  It seems that Tritton was dissatisfied with their previous attempt at chaining me to my desk with just one adapter because they just released a new top of the line model: the Tritton AXPro.  As you may have guessed, this device's number of earthly tethers are greater than the last, possessing a staggering two power adapters for one single headset.  Tritton sent us one of these beastly headsets to see if they live up to their status as well as their power consumption.  This means that, once again, as we review this headset,  I can no longer move from my workstation.  My name is Thomas Gilligan, and if you are reading this, I am being held against my will by the Tritton AXPro.

Steelseries Siberia Neckband Headset

img_3283-lanoc-reviews-lanoc-reviews-smallIn the past, we have worked with Steelseries with our lan parties and reviews. Considering their focus on creating performance enhancing gaming gear, it's not a surprise really that we have a close relationship with them. Today I will be looking at their Siberia Neckband headset. With a neckband design being much different than any other headset I have tested I am excited but unsure how it will perform. Although considering past experiences with Steel Series I'm sure it will be a quality product.

Earpollution Custom Fallout

img_3125-lanoc-reviews-lanoc-reviews-smallWhen I went to CES this year at Las Vegas, NV,  I went into it knowing I would be the person to check out the stuff Wes couldn't make it to. While I was there, ifrogz was nice enough to meet up with me to show off some of their new headphones. I meet up with spoke with their Media Relations Specialist Ashley she showed me around to some products. I was impressed with their products and loved the ability to customize your own headphones in the Earpollution line. I was even more impressed when Ashley handed me a gift card to customize my own set. After getting back home and settled in I took a look at their website and decided to order a set of Fallout's.

Running on Bluetooth they are compatible with a variety of devices. We are going to test them out with a laptop and on a Bluetooth enabled cell phone. We have had great experiences with Kensington products, will this one be the same? Will they hold up to our abuse? Click below to find out.

Cyber Snipa Sonar 5.1 headset

We have reviewed a few headsets in the past and im sure we will review many more in the future. This is because as far as peripherals go the idea of a perfect headset ranges very widely from person to person. Everyone prefers a different size, shape, color, materials to make it comfortable for them. Not to mention the WIDE range of variables in everyone’s idea of good sound quality. Today we are going to take a closer look at the Sonar 5.1 headset from Cyber Snipa. We are going to find out if it is the perfect gaming headset for people who prefer “over the ear” headsets (me).
