Sony PlayStation Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0

I seem to have an addiction to buying headphone, at last count I had over ten pairs that I used for different devices. I know I could simply use a single pair for everything, however some are tailored different, some for music, some for games, some for movies some for the gym, and some are portable…..I know, I have issues.

Ever since Sony announced these headphones, I’ve been tempted by them as they offered virtual surround 7.1 surround sound over bluetooth. This year, I must have been a good boy as Santa got me a pair for Christmas.

Although the headphone looks quite bulky, they are amazing comfortable and lightweight. Once they’re on, you can hardly tell you’re wearing them.

The controls (once you work out where they all are) are simple to use and quite intuitive and they also have a built in mic (which is apparently crystal clear).

These headphones work with the PS4, PS3 (via a dongle) and the Playstation Vita (via a cable). I’m a little unsure why they were unable to simply use bluetooth technology built into each of the consoles…..but I’m sure they have their reasons.

The sound quality is good, very good infact, they rival my Turtle Beach headphones, and pressing the VSS button on the headphones gives you a lot more depth to the audio. I was able to test this by playing God of War Ascension, and hear a noticeable difference switching from Stereo to 7.1 in both the standard and VSS modes.

A nice little additional feature that can be downloaded is the companion app. This will allow you to upload a custom preset to ‘slot 2’ on the headphones. This is simply a preset with treble/mid/bass set, but can help you listen to games/movies/music the way you want to listen. There are a number of pre made presets, and a handful for existing games eg Destiny, inFamous: Second Son, which do seem to sound a little better, but that might just me in my head. I guess my only criticism is the bass isn’t quite as deep as I’d like, even with the ‘Bass Boost’ preset, it was good, but not perfect, however still very clear.

I guess if there are any downsides with these, it’s the range. My PS3 and PS4 are both at floor level, and I tend to sit approximately three metres away with a table in the way. I’ve found that I have to sit up so I’m in direct line of sight of the dongle, otherwise they tend to cut out.

Apart from that, a great addition to my ever growing headphone collection

Apple Mighty Mouse

Posted by Ub3rG33k on Jan 8, 2009 in Apple

Nope, Apple hasn’t bought the rights to the kids TV show (showing your age if you remember), however it has released the coolest mouse !

The Mighty Mouse is a touch sensitive mouse….I know how cool !

I’m picking one up tomorrow with my Mac, so will let you know how it works.

Below are the details from Apples site

How do you improve on the mouse that has everything? Remove its tail. Mighty Mouse — the mouse that changed the way you scroll — has gone wireless. Now you can take that seamless, touch-sensitive, 360-degree scrolling design with you wherever you go.

Bluetooth

No Tail Required

With its secure, reliable Bluetooth technology, the wireless Mighty Mouse goes wherever you do. Pair it with any Bluetooth-enabled Mac and wireless keyboard to work untethered and uncluttered at your desk, or take your show on the road. Mighty Mouse lightens your load on the go by operating with either one or two AA batteries. That’ll save you lugging a bulky dock around.

Laser-guided Precision

Laser-guided Precision

The wireless Mighty Mouse’s tracking engine is based on powerful laser technology that delivers 20 times the performance of standard optical tracking, giving you more accuracy and responsiveness on more surfaces. It works just as well on your office desk as it does on a table at your favorite coffee spot. So leave the mouse pad at home. Mighty Mouse is one smooth operator.

Spry and Mighty

In the beginning, there was one button. Then there were two. Then there were clickable scroll wheels and programmable toggles and solid-state slides. But nobody made a mouse as easy to use as your Mac. Until now. Mighty Mouse combines the capability of a multibutton mouse with Apple’s signature top-shell design for the best of both form and function. Use it any way you work: Stick with single-button simplicity or click with multibutton efficiency.

360 Degree Scrolling

Get Around

Time is round. Space is curved. Why should your mouse be linear? Plenty of applications require you to do more than scroll up and down. Mighty Mouse offers 360-degree scrolling capability, thanks to its Scroll Ball, perfectly positioned to roll smoothly under just one finger. Explore the farthest reaches of your files — pan images in iPhoto, view timelines in iMovie HD and Final Cut Pro, traverse bars in GarageBand and Logic Pro — with one hand tied behind your back (or holding a cup of coffee or typing). Mighty Mouse gives you room to roam.

Dashboard

You’ll Really Click

Touch-sensitive technology under Mighty Mouse’s seamless top shell detect where you’re clicking, transforming your sleek, one-button mouse into a two-button wonder. But the innovation doesn’t end there. Apple engineers added force-sensing buttons on either side of Mighty Mouse that let you squeeze the mouse, activating Mac OS X Dashboard, Exposé or a whole host of other, customizable features — instantly.
