  • Razer Megalodon gaming headset: the Piranha's big brother


    You guys may have seen my Piranha review; I consider it a good deal as it has nice sound, a decent mic, and is pretty lightweight although it squishes your head somewhat. Well, the Piranha’s bigger, badder brother the Megalodon (after this joker) is going to be hitting the scene soon and it looks awesome. If they squeezed such great sound out of the Piranha’s limited frame, I… Read More

  • BlueAnt finally announces V1 availability

    BlueAnt has been showing of this headset since CES ’08 but they are finally make the first Bluetooth 2.1 headset available. The V1 key feature, besides the small size, is that users can control their headset via voice commands.

  • Review: Razer Piranha headset

    I’m new to the video review thing, so forgive me if the thing above is too long by half, which I’m pretty sure it is. I’ve included a traditional text review as well, in case you don’t want to look at my smirking video-face. Anyhoo, I’m reviewing Razer’s Piranha gaming headset. If you’re in the market for a headphones/microphone combo, this is a… Read More

  • A look at iPhone 3G with B&O headset

    James Kendrick takes a hands on approach to several of the new iPhone 3G accessories. In his YouTube video, he starts with the Bang & Olufsen Earset 3 headset, commenting on how great they sound. B&O has a long reputation for high-quality audio gear, so we have no reason to doubt him. He hasn’t “done a lot of calling”, so while you’re sitting pretty on the… Read More

  • Photos of SOCOM Confrontation's snazzy new headset

    SOCOM Confrontation for the PS3 will include a nice looking Bluetooth headset. From what I can see in the pictures it looks like a decent headset, but of course I’d have to hear it to say for sure. If you are not a fan of SOCOM but still want the headset, Sony also plans to sell it separately. Two big features of the headset are a Mute button and a USB charging station. The price of… Read More

  • Keep your iPhone/iPod standing on a tray table… without evil juju

    Well now this is a cute little trick. Ouriel of Le French TechCrunche was futzing around with his iPod when he found that a 1-to-2 prong airline adapter holds up his iPhone like a champ. PHa and I had a hell of a time trying to keep an iPod nano standing on the flight to Germany and this would have helped immensely. iPhone Hack to make it stand still (without touching it of course) [Ouriel] Read More

  • Jaybird stereo Bluetooth headset

    [photopress:jaybird.IMG_1559.JPG,full,pp_image] We can expect the Jaybird to hit our shores this summer. I don’t really see a market for standalone stereo Bluetooth headsets because so few devices have stereo Bluetooth. Luckily, the Jaybird comes with a Bluetooth iPod adapter and mini-stereo adapter and offers the user some degree of wireless control, depending on the device, via the… Read More

  • V-Moda Vibe Duo: High-end audio for the iPhone

    For those unhappy over the iPhone’s inability to play nice with headphones, V-Moda just released a pair of Vibe Duo buds that not only work with the weird recessed headphone jack, but also feature inline call controls and a hidden microphone. Just like the standard iPhone headphones. Three pairs of ear-cushion-things are included to ensure a snug fit for the best possible sound. As any… Read More

  • New Jabra 3-in-1 Bluetooth Headset

    Laptop speakers, a speaker phone and headphones. That’s the Jabra BT8030. It works via Bluetooth, hence the “BT” part of the model number. You’ll get 32 hours of talk time, 26 hours in speaker mode, 600 hours of standby time and -$235 of readily available cash. That seems like a lot, but hey, I’ve always had trouble trying to meditate in the middle of a subway… Read More

  • Apple's Bluetooth Headset For The iPhone Isn't So Hot

    Matt says the iPhone quote-kicks ass-unquote, but folks aren’t too hot on Apple’s iPhone Bluetooth headset. For $130, you’ll get the headset, USB charger and iPhone dock. … And that’s about it. The headset accomplishes only the most minimal of tasks: you can talk to your dopey friends on it. You cannot listen to music (no A2DP support here) on it, nor can you… Read More

  • Apple Bluetooth Headset Gets FCC Approval

    I completely forgot about the Bluetooth headset that was announced along side the iPhone back in January and I’m sure most of you have forgotten as well. The good folks at the FCC approved the headset on Thursday, but details are just as limited as they were when we were first introduced to the slim headset. Let’s face it, folks. The chances of any of us getting a hold of an iPhone… Read More

  • SoundTech LightSnake iChat USB Headset and Mic: Does Apple Know About This?

    I’m sure you’ve heard of SoundTech before. It makes all sorts of audio-related cables and the like, the latest of which is the LightSnake iChat, a USB headset and mic that’s designed for everyday tasks like gaming and annoying your friends on Skype. A nice vanity feature here is “Live when Lit,” which causes the unit to flash wildy when it’s processing sound… Read More

  • Sagem's Bluetooth Headset is World's Smallest, Still Won't Make You Cool

    It’s no secret: walking around with a Bluetooth headset on just to walk around with a Bluetooth headset on means that you’re a douche. No, really. If you take offense to this, look in a mirror. See the Bluetooth thing on your head? Yeah, see, you’re a douche. At the very least a tool. Now then, does that mean that if you wear this uber-tiny Sagem Bluetooth headset that… Read More

  • Sony HBH-PV710 Out Of The Wild

    Getting excited over yet another Bluetooth headset is like trying to say the Irish don’t enjoy getting drunk. Cute jokes aside, this Sony-Ericsson HBH-PV710 isn’t looking too shabby for a headset. A bit 1983, it comes with some swiveling ear hook, red and brown covers (is that dookie on your ear?), and 12-hours of talk-time. It even has a super lame neck strap for when… Read More

  • Chronotech Bluetooth Headset/Wristwatch Combo. Huh?

    File this one under WTF: Chronotech is dropping a Bluetooth watch and headset in one. The watch face pops off the band and then you put it into your ear. So it makes sense — Bluetooth watches are all the rage this year, turning from vaporware to everywhere in no time. Unfortunately, this thing looks like those free watches they used to give away with Burger King kid’s meals…… Read More

  • BlueAnt Wireless Realizes People Like Color, Adds to Bluetooth Headsets


    I like the BlueAnt X3 Bluetooth headset: It’s small, lightweight, connects to three devices at the same time including your Windows or Mac PC for VoIP calls, and it’s reasonably priced at $69. And now, I can add “comes in six colors” to my list of likes. Just in time for the holiday season you’ll be able to pick up an X3 in black, cool white, hot pink, gold… Read More
