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.

Kensington Bluetooth Stereo Headphones

Something about being tied to your pc while you are listening to music and watching movies by a cord isn’t what I would consider comfortable.

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.

Tritton AX51 Headset

Quality audio, despite the bemoaning of many, has proven time and again to be subjective to the listener.  This allows for a wide base for competition within the industry, and serves to cause confusion among the average consumer.  For instance, a quality set of 5.1 headphones can come in quite handy when gaming on the PC.  You know your enemies' every move, every blade of grass crushed underfoot as they make a desperate attempt to flank you.  It is a futile effort, unfortunately for them you can track them with your now acute sense of hearing.  Audiophiles cry out, however, "5.1 headphones sound terrible when it comes to music!"  So you can see the predicament these companies are in.  By catering to one group they are ignored by the other.  Tritton Technologies was kind enough to send us a pair of their AX51 5.1 Gaming Headsets in order to determine how they compare when faced with the rigors of gaming audio as well as music.

If it’s anything like our experiences with steel series in the past we should be happy. Click to find out
