When it comes to gaming peripherals, everyone knows that Razer makes some of the best and given that most gaming peripherals can be used in everyday life, the company naturally branched out to create gamer inspired lifestyle gear. One such line of products is the Razer Hammerhead line of in-ear headphones which we were fairly impressed with when we reviewed it way back in 2013.
Naturally, given the success of the Hammerhead series, Razer released a new Bluetooth version, the Hammerhead BT which we’ll be reviewing today.Razer Hammerhead BT Specifications Manufacturer Razer Model Hammerhead BT Type In-Ear Interface Bluetooth 4.1 + [...]
Modular Gaming Headphones? Yup.
Many of today’s peripherals now have a ton of customization options. Parts can be removed, added, or swapped depending on the user’s preference. However, the gaming headset scene hasn’t seen a whole lot of customizability yet. Sure some companies have added the option for users to switch out the appearance of their headsets, but it’s rare to see a gaming headset where most of the parts can be removed and replaced depending on a user’s preference.
That being said, then compared to everything else that currently exists on the market, the Plantronics RIG 500E (E for E-Sports Edition) is definitely in a [...]
Earlier this year at CES 2014, SteelSeries invited us to their suite to check out a couple brand new products they were coming out with. While we were browsing their suite, SteelSeries showed us the new SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Gaming Mouse along with the SteelSeries Stratus Wireless Gaming Controller. While those were interesting products, what really caught our eye was a product they had introduced several months earlier – the SteelSeries Siberia Elite Gaming Headset, which was prominently displayed on one of the display shelves.
Most of you who follow the PC gaming scene in the past decade have probably seen the [...]
Well, it’s been a year since our last budget gaming build and I’ve received a ton of requests to update it, so your wish guys, is my command.
Here it is – the October 2013 Budget Gaming PC build for under $800!
Our goal this time around is identical to our goal for the original under $800 gaming build. We wanted a gaming build that would be a powerhouse of a gaming system that could play almost any modern games at medium to high settings at 1920×1200 or below. Most importantly however, we also wanted to do this at a budget. A budget of $800 or less. Could it be [...]
Let’s face it. Gaming these days is a lot different when compared to gaming 10-15 years ago. What used to be an activity solely restricted to alone time at home in front of a PC, or in dark smelly LAN centers have transformed into a major industry with a number of major trends emerging as of late.
Earlier this year at CES 2013, one company that seems to be on top of these trends is SteelSeries and as a result of the shifting trends in the industry, SteelSeries unveiled a number of new gaming headsets – one of which is what we’ll be reviewing today – the SteelSeries Flux In-Ear Pro gaming headset.

A couple years back, the only option to get any sort of surround sound on a computer was to either purchase a physical 5.1/7.1 surround sound system or purchase an expensive, bulky, and generally crappy sounding true 5.1 surround sound headset. If you think those are both pretty bad options, you’re probably not alone which is why a number of companies are investing in virtual surround sound software which use principles of psychoacoustics to simulate 7.1 channel audio in headsets that only have two physical drivers.
Now recently it seems like gaming peripherals giant Razer has also gotten into the virtual surround bandwagon [...]
Ahhh… it’s almost spring time! The season of allergies and working off all the weight we’ve gained over the winter. While I’d love to talk about both subjects, I don’t think I’m all that qualified to talk about allergies, so let’s talk a new piece of tech that’ll help us get that much harder, better, and faster.
Today we’ll be reviewing the Jaybird BlueBuds X. The BlueBuds X is Jaybird’s latest and greatest pair of Bluetooth headphones, and in line with many of Jaybird’s previous offerings, the BlueBuds X is aimed at those with active lifestyles. Of course, that’s not [...]
After reviewing AZiO’s Levetron Mech 5 mechanical gaming keyboard several months back and coming away quite impressed with the product, AZiO promised us that they were quite focused on the gaming market and hinted that they would be expanding the Levetron line of products in the near future.
Delivering on their promise, today we’ll be reviewing the first gaming headset to grace AZiO’s Levetron line of gaming peripherals, the AZiO Levetron GH808 USB Gaming Headset. The Levetron GH808 features 40mm precision tuned neodymium drivers, bass enhancing vibration modules, circumural earcups, and a swing out noise cancelling [...]
It seems like Creative is following the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mantra for their latest Tactic 3D lineup of gaming headsets. For a company with a name that literally implies innovation, this comes across as a little strange for me. In fact, the headsets in the Tactic 3D lineup look so similar that when Creative sent me the Tactic 3D Rage to review I had to double check the box to make sure that they didn’t ship a Tactic 3D Wrath by mistake – they didn’t.
I thought that since the Tactic 3D Rage doesn’t seem to substantially deviate from the Wrath aside from having an angrier name, it’s [...]
