Sennheiser’s PC 373D Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headphones

Sennheiser has not made any adjustments to the basic concept on the PC 373D Dolby 7.1 gaming headphones while comparing with its successful predecessor. The gaming headset, like its predecessor, can be connected to the PC via USB or mini USB and is based on an open design for good ventilation of the ears.

The design of the PC 373D Dolby 7.1 gaming headphones has been slightly revised compared to its predecessor. While the PC 363D was completely black, the successor has additional, discreet red elements. There are small red lines on the microphone bracket and the cable. The inside of the auricle was also lifted in color.

Overall, however, Sennheiser continues to rely on the familiar, simple, functional design. The processing is high-quality and the carrying comfort was increased.

Great Package of Delivery


The PC 373D Dolby 7.1 gaming headphones is delivered with manageable accessories. In addition to the headset, the scope of supply includes a 1.2 m long extension cable so that the cable length can be extended to a total of three meters. In addition, there is a USB surround dongle in the package, which can be switched between stereo and surround sound quickly.

The specifications of the PC 373D Dolby 7.1 gaming headphones are as follows:

Transducer principle: Dynamic, open

Frequency range: 15 Hz - 28,000 Hz

Impedance: 50 Ohm

With these specifications, the headset is also compatible with all other players, such as MP3 players and mobile phones.

Sound Quality

The goal of Sennheiser is to produce headsets with a sound that satisfies both professionals and ambitious amateur gamers. This is the absolute success of the manufacturer with the PC 373D Dolby 7.1 gaming headphones. The Sennheiser PC 373D Dolby 7.1 gaming headphones delivers 7.1. Dolby Surround Gaming Sound of the top class.

The sound is clear and the gaming headset manages to reproduce basses as well as letting higher notes sound naturally. The highs and lows also have a very good correlation with each other.

The 7.1 surround sound in PC 373D Dolby 7.1 gaming headphones is characterized by a realistic and precise spatial sound. One has the feeling exactly to determine, where the sound in the game comes from.

Sennheiser has developed a new software for the PC 373D Dolby 7.1 gaming headphones to precisely adjust the surround sound for every gamer's ear. The software implementation is intuitive and allows gamers to choose between four different equalizer settings.

Microphone

The new Sennheiser PC 373D Dolby 7.1 gaming headphones headset is also equipped with noise canceling. In this way, background noise is avoided, thus ensuring that only your voice is recorded. The voice is clearly transmitted.

There is also the possibility to use the "Mic Sidetone" on the headphones and the Sennheiser software to adjust the voice reproduction. This makes the voice recording even clearer.

Of course, the PC 373D Dolby 7.1 gaming headphones also has the simple, intuitive mute of the microphone, which we know from the PC 363D. The microphone is muted when the microphone is raised until a "soft" sound is heard. A small but very useful feature.

Overall, the implementation of the microphone is impressive all along the line and is in no way inferior to the sound quality.

Comfort

Besides the sound quality, Sennheiser has always attached great importance to the wearing comfort of the headset.

The auricles are covered with velvet. This makes the headset very soft and comfortable to wear. Sennheisser himself applies the ear pads as an "XXL ear pad".

With a weight of 354 grams, the headset is not a light weight. Due to the very soft padding of the temples, this weight is not noticeable even during long gaming sessions when worn.

Overall, the Sennheiser PC 373D Dolby 7.1 gaming headphones is also convincing in terms of style and comfort.

Avanti Headphones have the Sound to Match their Excellent Design

Avanti

Moshi’s Pair of Lustrous Looking Ear Headphones


It is not difficult nowadays to locate headphones with excellent performance across the range of frequency and Avanti seems to be an appropriate choice. Moshi, an audio company has created a niche for itself in making accessories for all kinds of portable devices and during the CES earlier this year had come up with their pair of lustrous looking Avanti ear headphones. Its styling is amazing considering the company’s taste in crafting attractive accessories.

They seem to be more compact over the ears than the average ones and the thin metal headband is said to be lightweight though padded adequately for comfort. It comprises of a hinge mechanism which enables the headphones to fold in for compressed storage. The gentle clamping force, soft foam pads and being light weight enables the user to have them on for a longer period without the feeling of discomfort.

Besides this they are somewhat angled to conform to the shape of your ear which probably backed the ability of noise-blocking. With ergonomics in mind, the ear headphones enable the user to enjoy their favourite track for hours without getting tired. Its curved headband is designed to place the soft adjustable earcups, forming a precise, noise-isolation seal while applying the least pressure on the ears.

Headphone Radiate Refined Luxury


Made from stainless steel together with soft leatherette, the headphone tends to radiate refined luxury in a uniquely discreet design.Though the designs of Avanti is said to be light and compact, high efficiency 40mm drivers tends to deliver a full bodied sound which competes the audio quality of bigger headsets. Its bass is said to be succinct though smooth while the mids/highs can be tuned to offer sophisticated as well as immersive soundstage with wide vibrant range.

Mids seemed to be raised nicely and the tame bass means that there is no blow up to the sound. Instruments surrounding the midrange such as cello as well as the electric guitar tend to present excellent timbre, which make them sound more realistic than one would expect from headphones of such highs. Highs on the other hand are more disruptive and one should ensure that you are listening to high quality source.

Highs/Mids – Amazing Brightness/Balance


These headphones seem to be some of the better over the ear headphones providing a vast soundstage for something so small. The box like the headphone does not have anything which is unnecessary and its neat design is something which has been carefully speculated at every turn. On flipping the top case open, one is greeted with an illustration on the flap which tends to look like it has come from a museum accompanied by an elegant carrying case which looks classy with a case, a cable and a toilet paper square worth of instructions.

Marked Right/Left, the headphones folds up for a good compact unit while travelling. The cable and the mic tend to work well though the remote seems to lack a bit with no volume control, with only just stop/reverse/forward track. The highs and the mids tend to have an amazing brightness which balances with one another while the bass though present is not overpowering. If one seems to be looking for elegant headphones for comfort while travelling as well as ideal for multiple varieties, then the Avanti is the perfect choice which are priced $199.00.

Glow_Headphones
Innovation and advancement never tends to stop in the field of technology and mainly in the consumer product category. Innovators had turned their head towards making the music products much sleeker and smarter and charming in every way possible. Headphones had long been in fashion for listening to the music and other entertaining purposes based on sound. A new start-up named Glow LLC had launched an innovative headphone on Kickstarter which can glow as per the beat of music.

How The Headphones Glow

This new range of smart headphone is using an amazing new product called Corning Fibrance which is essentially a light-diffusing glass optical fibre. This fibre could be crafted into extremely thin, flexible and could emit beautifully vibrant light. Glow had used this Fibrance to pulse the diffused laser light as per the pulse to the beat of your music. Glowing headphone simply brings the visual beauty in user’s inner music world with a glow.

Features Of The Glow Headphone

Finally on getting $750,000 Glow will be able to bring in Glow To Motion feature to its headphones which allows headphones to glow as per the pulse of the steps and movements.

Glow Headphones Likely To Find Fans Globally

Glow can illuminates for over eight hours and gets charged extremely quickly via micro-USB in 30 minutes. This headphone even lets the user’s listen to music when battery runs out. Glow had invested highly in procuring the best quality sound by working with Knowles which is known as making audio parts for major manufacturers like Sennheiser. However it is yet to be seen whether glowing light and other functionality happens to perform perfectly in real time conditions but it is getting fans and appreciation from others and it is also getting more funding each passing moment.

Both the Virtual Reality Headsets Will Be Bought State the Oculus Rift Leaders

Oculus Rift
Oculus Rift is creating a couple of headsets , where one is for the company and other for Samsung but they are pretty sure that people will barge in to buy both the headsets as stated by Oculus rift creator Palmer Luckey. Still, a market releasing date has not been fixed but it has already been predicted that customers will want to put their hands into both the products and make it their own. The company has been stating the fact that these two products are not competing against each other but are rather complimenting.

Looking into the matter:-

  • The company has been saying that these two devices with different names are the potentially for the same person.
  • The company announced a partnership with Samsung for the creation of Gear IV, a headset that will be in synchronisation for the Galaxy Note 4 tablet due for release as of now.
  • Gear IV has been predicted to be a more open and easier option to use than the Oculus rift regular headset although the company has kept the same approach for both the headsets stating that almost the same products are sold under different brand names.
  • What is cool with this new invention is its freeness. Mobile does present you with a number of advantages when you are unwired and simplifies the using procedures. This device is much easier to carry and give a watch out to your friends.
  • The company’s major aim has always been to get more people into the virtual reality thing and giving them a real feel of it. Oculus has been working since a longer time to provide people with a mobile experience. It has to be said that John Carmack has been instrumental in making this virtual reality come into the market and to the people via Oculus. Also, credit has been given to Samsung for using a screen known as AMOLED that is found in its phones and tablets allowing to visualise low latency images that is not possible in the traditional LCD screens. This is of much importance as with a greater extent of latency you will find you head moving in random with screen and might create motion sickness in some users’ .A big reason for Oculus rift to partner for a Galaxy Note 4 gadget productions.
Things needed to be seen:- 

Even though Oculus rift has been saying that people would go for both the products and would like to have both of them, only time is going to tell us as to which one is the best or is the company’s view really very truthful!!!! It’s still some time away from getting into the market and until it comes no review can be made upon just prediction. Oculus has had some major qualifications with its regular headset before and thus, a very high quality product is typically expected. It would be amazing if Oculus rift and Samsung Galaxy Note screen become virtually super compatible.

Bose QuietComfort 20i Best Headphones Against Noise




Usually in-ear headphones; Models with noise-canceling system are very uncomfortable. But the Bose QuietComfort 20i refutes this prejudice and reduces the ambient noise. This indeed very great! With its unique silicone fitting pieces Bose QC20i sit very comfortably in the ear cups. But Bose requires 300 Euros for its QC20i. For this price tag, the American manufacturer also offers a lot. The comfort is excellent, for example, unlike conventional ear headphones, the Bose plugs are not pressed deep into the ear canals. Instead, they lie outside the ear, much like the classic iPod or iPhone headphones.

 Thanks to special silicone mold they sit soft and precisely fit in the ears. A small nozzle directs the bass safely towards the ear canal, rather than to let slip away to the side, like in the old iPod earphones. Small silicone sheets keep the Bose headphones in the ears. In a hands-free microphone cable with answer key is included. Class: Bose offers two variants - the QC20 is suitable for smart phones with Android, BlackBerry and Windows operating system, QC20i specifically for the iPhone which has additional volume control buttons on the hands free microphone.

The electronics box behind controls the excellent noise reduction. Further down the cable, just before the connector, dangles a small flat electronic box about five millimeters thick. Two tiny microphones in each of the two earplugs register any sounds that do not belong to the current music. The electronics to calculate exactly opposite vibrations and passes them through the headphones again. Noise and counter- noise cancel each other out, the music remains. Or when the Smartphone pauses heavenly peace. The effect of noise reduction is amazing and almost ghostly.

Whether calls from sitting next heavy traffic noise or droning turbines: The Bose filters everything away. If that is too hard, switch to the “Attention" mode. Then the effect is similar to other noise-canceling models, leaving Language audible. So you do not miss announcements in the train station or airport. Firmly built into the box in the test battery lasted about 16 hours. The noise reduction was reflected by a slight noise floor. You hear it but only in a very quiet environment. Other side effects such as fluctuating volume were not audible.

The maximum volume is more than sufficient to standard Smartphones, distortions do not make their presence felt. The Bose works even the noise-canceling. The sound quality from the Bose convinced compared with Sony XBA -3 which reveals more detail in the music and hear sounds clearer, but will be without noise reduction. Here is as “real" in-ear model and uncomfortable in the long run not for everyone. The sound of the Bose contrast appears warmer and softer, but less detailed. The bass is full and clean at the listener, because booms that deafened nothing. Thus, the Bose is pleasant and unobtrusive even on long journeys. And very important: he voices are again pure and natural.
