Pulse Wireless Headset Review -- PS3 Goes Wireless

The Pulse Wireless Headset: Elite Edition is a solid, reliable offering from Sony. It looks and feels more expensive than its $150 price mark, and more importantly, the wireless headset's sound quality is fantastic. It even comes with a number of special features that tech junkies like yourself will enjoy, including preset sound modes and a BassImpact feature that lets you "feel the sound."

When it comes to headsets, sound and comfort are definitely the most important factors to me, and that's exactly where the Pulse delivers. The Pulse boasts 7.1 virtual surround sound, which definitely helps to accentuate many types of gaming experiences. Don't expect the type of quality from a true 7.1 home audio system or anything. But let's say if you're in to shooters, you'll be able to hear your enemy before they creep up on you, so they offer a similar level of immersion.

The sound quality from the Pulse is pristine, and you can even customize the headset for an optimal experience when watching movies and listening to music, as well as when you're playing games, by using the device's side controls. The various modes (movies, music, shooters, fighting, and racing games) use the Pulse's innovative BassImpact technology, which delivers bass-triggered pulses to the cans based on what you're doing. For example, if you're playing a racing game with BassImpact on, you'll actually feel the motor rev. The intensity of the pulses changes based on the mode you're on, and it even works with music if you really want to feel that bass.

MOGA: The Evolution Of Mobile Gaming Controllers

PowerA aims to make Android gaming more appealing with its newly released MOGA Mobile Gaming Controller. Look at any app reviews resource, and you'll invariably see a caveat in nearly every game write-up panning the use of touch-based virtual controls. The MOGA turns those fake buttons into real ones, syncing via Bluetooth to put an actual gamepad in your hands.

The $49.99 peripheral doesn't work with every game out there, but it doesn't need to. As long as the top developers include support for their console-style gaming experiences, the MOGA is doing what it's supposed to. The good news is that Gameloft, Namco, Sega, and a handful of others are already stepping up to patch in support.

I spent much of the past week tooling around with a MOGA and paired Samsung Galaxy SIII during commutes and such, and I've been very satisfied with the performance. It's a well-designed peripheral that fits snugly into your two hands. You notice immediately when you hold the thing that you're dealing with a much smaller gamepad than you would for a full-blown gaming console, but there's no awkward feeling as you reach for the two analog nubs, two shoulder triggers, and four face buttons.

Razer Deathstalker Ultimate Keyboard - Tech Junkies

One of the things you’ll first notice when you lay eyes on the Deathstalker Ultimate from Razer is the additional Switchblade interface that adorns the right side of the keyboard. The Switchblade UI replaces the number pad area of most keyboards with 10 dynamic display programmable keys, a Synaptics touch sensitive LCD screen, and right & left mouse buttons at the bottom. For the LCD touchscreen Razer has released a freely available SDK (Software Development Kit) that allows developers to make dynamic and reactive applications that will display in the screen area of the keyboard. You might initially think that this is the only thing that sets the Deathstalker apart from its peers and fortunately you’d be wrong.

The Deathstalker Ultimate has a whole host of recognizable Razer features and a few new add-ons that are sure to be welcomed by gaming enthusiasts. For those who have other Razer products you’ll instantly notice the braided cables, backlighting, and triple snake branding. Some of the newer features include a fixed wrist rest with a rubberized inlay, tri-color LED backlighting, fully customizable keysets, five additional macro keys, 10 key anti-ghosting technology, and an onboard macro recording interface.

Razer Tiamat 7.1 Headphone Review -- Tech Junkies

The Razer Tiamat 7.1 analog headphones were introduced into a wide field of headsets that offer surround sound for computer or console entertainment. Accurate directional sound usually isn’t well produced with less than 5 individual speakers. The Tiamat 7.1 has 5 in each ear cup bringing the number of discreet speakers to a total of 10. A stereo pair can produce good music but attempt to position some sound anywhere around the user’s head and you begin to see the limitations of just two speakers.

Those deficiencies become more evident when headphones use software that attempts to fill in the blanks with spatial distortion. So if we were talking about just the number of speakers used to represent space around the user then the Tiamat already succeeds where other surround sound sets have failed. There is more to these headphones though than the initial specs though.

It’s got a pretty face to go with its laundry list of features.

Tech Junkies --Thrustmaster Ferrari Vibration GT Cockpit 458 Italia Racing Wheel

Not everyone will agree with this statement, but I think the only way to truly experience the rush of racing games like Forza is to use a racing wheel, even if it's something as simple as Microsoft's wireless handheld deely. The dual sticks just don't cut it for trying to replicate the experience of driving racecars. Like tires need the road, you need something to grip to immerse yourself in the experience.

Thrustmaster agrees with me. As one of the companies that pioneered the racing wheel, they've introduced the Ferrari Vibration GT Cockpit 458 Italia Racing Wheel for the Xbox 360. It's a fully featured racing rig (wheel, collapsible stand, and pedals) that brings the beauty and precision of a 458 Italia right into your living room. Well, not really, but it does have a stand!

No Keys. . .Push To Start

The stand is an important feature. With most racing wheel setups, the wheel rig and the pedal box are separate, leaving you to find a suitable solution for setting it up on your own. Thrustmaster has already released a version of its 458 Italia wheel just like this. In fact, the look of both editions' wheels are identical, featuring paddle shifters, a genuine "Manettino" dial, and an engine start button that doubles as a d-pad; however, the new cockpit edition vibrates and relieves your lap and/or table of wheel duty. It'll also relieve you of 300 of your big, fat American dollars.

So, the question becomes, is the convenience of a stand worth the extra money? Well, it depends on who you are and what you're looking for.

TRITTON launches an all out assault on gaming peripherals with their new Warhead 7.1 headphones, the first and only headphones that sync up directly with the Xbox 360 for a true wireless experience.

Throw off the dongle shackles of old. Warhead 7.1 uses proprietary technology straight from Microsoft to connect directly into system. It’s something many have long dreamed about, but only now is it becoming a reality.

Tech Junkies: TRITTON Warhead 7.1 Dolby Wireless Surround Headset For Xbox 360

Out of the box, you get the headset, Base Station, power cord, and assorted wires to help you connect both old and slim models of the Xbox 360 into the base. If installation were any easier, you would already be wearing a pair on your head right now. You synch up the headset to the console in the same fashion as you would a new controller. A clearly marked button just above the earpiece allows you to easily connect to your console and even switch between players just incase you were kind enough to let someone else be Player 1 in Castle Crashers for a change.

Already, I can hear the collective eyebrow raises for when I mentioned the power supply which can be a hassle if you’ve already have your power strip filled with other devices. Unlike other headsets which would draw power straight from the Xbox, the Warhead actually has a clever reason for needing it’s own power supply, the rechargeable batteries.
