Filling the Loop: SENNHEISER Headsets, TAI-HAO Keycaps, AQUA COMPUTER cuplex kryos NEXT

As a hardware news and review writer, I find that it can be pretty difficult to keep up with everything happening in the industry. It could be that, or it could be the full time job with a family that crunches the schedule a bit. But that’s the life of a freelancer and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Still, there’s some good news worthy releases I’ve received that I’ve been dying to get out to you, but haven’t had the time until now. Let’s fill the loop on some interesting products from SENNHEISER, TAI-HAO and AQUA COMPUTER. I hate to admit it but I was deleting PRs from SENNHEISER because I didn’t realize they were different from the other spam emails I get. Let’s just say spam filters aren’t perfect and I check all of my promotional emails a bit closer now. Still, consistency is not an issue for them and I began noticing what I thought were some pretty impressive products. SENNHEISER deals in gaming headsets, but also has a host of other audio products to check out. For this update, I particularly want to point out the GSP 350 gaming headset with Dolby 7.1 Surround.

Even then, there were a couple of features that looked interesting. One design detail I really like is the fact that the mic will automatically mute when you raise the boom, negating t...

Tritton Pro+ True 5.1 Surround HeadSet for PC and MAC

Introduction: Our ability to detect sound is one of our most important senses. It helps us communicate with each other, enjoy music to relax and/or detect a possible danger in our surroundings. Sound has become even more important to us over the last few years with the advent of High Definition content. Rich dialog, car chase music, gun battles with large explosions are all added to immerse you deeper into the entertainment experience. Modern day gaming is no exception.

Genius GX Gaming Cavimanus 7.1 Gaming Headset

For gamers having great visuals and performance in a game is something you always strive toward, so a high-end video card is of paramount importance. Of course, the audio experience should not be over-looked, because it also plays a significant part of the total gaming experience. With recent technological advances we are now capable of hearing sounds on a multidimensional sound stage that includes center, front left/right and rear left/right. When we listen to any type of audio in a two-channel mode especially when gaming, we can sometimes lose a certain depth of field for what surrounds us. Capturing that is the crux and objective of every audio experience, whether its high end speakers on your stereo system, or a high performance gaming headset. A gaming headset is precisely what we get to look at on the test bench today. We are very excited for our new arrival, the Genius GX Gaming Cavimanus 7.1 channel gaming headset. The Cavimanus headset brings many exciting features to pro gamers along with 7.1 Channel audio. The headset comes with a vibration function that adds to the heavy base and is designed to rock your world. The volume control and microphone is conveniently positioned on the left ear cup, and you can fold the microphone away during games that don’t require a mic. The vibration feature can also be cancelled with the push of a button. Read on as we put it through its paces to see if the Genius Cavimanus 7.1 gaming headset can become a weapon in you...
