  • Moshi Moshi: Native Union makes Skype/iPhone headsets fun again

    Moshi Moshi! I’m not a huge headset fan but these are some of the coolest accessories I’ve seen in a while. All of these devices, the 04i, the 03, and the 02, connect to PCs or iPhones either via Bluetooth or 3.5mm cable. The 04i acts as a stereo Bluetooth speaker as well as a speaker phone. This model doesn’t support iPhone/Touch charging, but future models will. It costs… Read More

    • Driver allows deep customization of audio to serve your… Read More

  • Sony's gaming headset rocks the modern design

    Sony just launched a new gaming headset line in Asia, and they look nice. I’m not entirely sure how comfortable they are based on the rendering, but they certainly look lighter than most headsets. Expect to see them in Asia this month, and hopefully Sony will bring them over to us sooner rather then later. No word on pricing at this time. Read More

  • Review: Klipsch Image X10i Headset

    The Short Version: Definitely the best sounding consumer-grade in-ear headphones I’ve ever listened to. The price tag matches the sound quality however. If you want good audio fidelity on your phone headset, you’ll be hard pressed to find something better than these. Just be prepared to shell out some serious cash. Read More

    We have a few WoW players on staff here and they’ve been pretty excited about this headset. That said, I got a chance to take a look at them and I’m quite pleased.

  • An interview with Johan Birger, part of the Jabra Stone design team


    It’s not every day I get excited about a Bluetooth headset but the Jabra Stone is an exception. The headset, in short, looks like a smooth stone. The earpiece fits into a small, portable charging unit and almost disappears in your pocket. The electronics inside are amazingly small and include dual microphones to reduce wind and traffice noises. In order to get to the bottom of this… Read More

    Maybe it’s the BBQ I just had on the Meatbus or something else but I’m not as up in arms about this as I was yesterday. But I’m still kind of miffed.

  • 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

    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.

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.
