Reasons for wanting, or even needing, a wireless noise-canceling headset might vary: What if your office switched to an open layout and you’re finding it difficult to focus with tons of noise going on all around you? What if you just want to tune out your surroundings during your morning or evening commute? What if you’re just looking for a handsfree solution for your workouts? If any of the preceding might apply to you, then...

At CES 2018, we got to check out GameSir, a gaming company specializing in gaming controllers. At the show, they were showcasing their new gaming controller for mobile devices, the GameSir G5. We just got our review sample and we can’t wait to try it out! However, while we were waiting, we were not exactly empty handed.

CES 2018 – HyperX Cloud Flight Wireless Gaming Headset Review

HyperX has been getting better and better with their headset releases, pushing out respectable products at very competitive price points. The HyperX Cloud Stinger we reviewed back in 2016 went for a laughable 50 bucks and sold like hot cakes at Pax West 2016. The HyperX Cloud Alpha we reviewed after that takes the quality even higher with its dual chamber drivers while still staying under $100. At CES 2018, HyperX showcased their latest products:...

CES 2018 – SteelSeries Rival 600 Gaming Mouse Review

A CES post that’s also a review? Don’t worry, we had this product since our CES 2018 trip and we’re ready to give our full thoughts on it. During CES 2018, SteelSeries unveiled a product I was personally waiting for them to finally release: their very own adjustable weight gaming mouse. However, the newly unveiled SteelSeries Rival 600 is much more than just a right-handed gaming mouse with adjustable weights. The TrueMove3 sensor that we...

Sennheiser GSP 301 Gaming Headset Review

There was a time where Sennheiser headsets were used for gaming in tandem with separate desktop mics. These were not traditional gaming headsets, but fans of Sennheiser simply enjoyed the quality of their headsets to the point they would use their audiophile-grade products for gaming purposes. Sennheiser got the hint, releasing a gaming line of products to hit home with that very fan base as well as to reach out new potential gamers who are...

Plantronics RIG 800LX Wireless Xbox One & PC Headset Review

After reviewing and loving the Plantronics BackBeat Fit 300 series headset, made for the active lifestyle, we turn back to Plantronics’ gaming department. The Plantronics RIG 800LX is a wireless gaming headset for the Xbox One and PC. It is one of three headsets shown to us this year at E3 that comes packaged with Dolby Atmos. Dolby Atmos is Dolby’s latest sound technology delivering a sense of height perception in our audio. Imagine finally...

HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset Review

The HyperX Cloud Alpha is the rare gaming headset that blends functionality, design and superb sound into one complete package. The headset is comprised of clean and subdued colors except for the bright splashes of the HyperX logo and rims, making for an elegant contrast. Rarely, for a gaming headset, the headset sans microphone is something that I wouldn’t feel out of place wearing in the subway, if not for the overly vivid color. HyperX...

Motorola Gamepad Moto Mod Review

After we reviewed (and loved) the Moto Z2 Force Edition smartphone, we were sure to hop on the queue to check out the latest Moto Mod that intrigued us the most. The Moto Gamepad gives your Moto Z device all of the buttons and controls that you’d expect to see in a gaming controller in today’s day and age. Most importantly, through the Moto Mod interface of the Moto Z family of smartphones, you get...
