Testing 7 1 surround sound
1More might not be the first name you think of when it comes to gaming headsets, but having launched their first pair of gaming headphones late last year in the form of the Spearhead VR, they’re now following it up with an even higher-end sibling, the Spearhead VRX – because everything sounds better with an X on the end. In this case, though, the X may well be warranted. While it shares much of the same DNA as the regular Spearhead VR, including its 50mm graphene drivers, subtle RGB lighting and suspended headband design, the VRX throws professional audio wizards Waves’ fancy 3D audio Nx tech into the mix, supposedly giving it a more authentic surround sound experience than the usual virtual 7.1 systems you see on other headsets. Is it worth £190 / $200 though, and is it enough to earn it a spot on our best gaming headset list? Let’s find out. You’ll have to use its USB connector and download 1More’s VRX driver software to take advantage of the … [Read more...] about 1More Spearhead VRX review: Is Waves’ 3D audio tech better than 7.1 surround sound headsets?
The best wireless headset is the Steelseries Arctis 7, and it does the fundamentals better than any rival on the market. Wireless headsets have to be a little more persuasive than their wired counterparts to be worth the higher price. Battery life, charge time, and range are all considerations that might put some gamers off ditching the cables, but we think the Arctis 7 covers those bases so impressively that you’ll feel only the benefits of going wireless, rather than the concerns. When we’re testing wireless headsets the most important criteria we look for are price, sound quality, and comfort, but it’s also important to have a headset you can use for long periods without its batteries impinging on the experience—either by running low after a short time and emitting that soul-punching beep every few seconds, or requiring that you stop using them while you charge. Ease of setup, signal interference/dropout, aesthetics and bonuses such as RGB lighting all … [Read more...] about The best wireless gaming headset
Hot on the heels of their Kone Aimo mouse that came out at the end of last year, Roccat are now following it up with an all new Aimo-themed headset. Dubbed the Khan Aimo RGB, this USB headset is about to bring Hi-Res audio and its ‘smart’ Aimo lighting system to your waxy ear holes. Looks-wise, the Khan Aimo RGB takes after Roccat’s dinky Khan Pro headset, complete with giant logos and spindly microphone. Weighing a mere 275g, the Khan Aimo RGB is a fraction heavier than the Khan Pro (which weighed just 230g), but Roccat claim it’s still one of the lightest USB headsets around. With stainless steel sliders and memory foam ear cups, it should hopefully be pretty comfortable too, provided you don’t have a weirdly-shaped, clamp-prone head like I do, of course. The key difference, as you may have already figured out, is that this one comes with added RGB lights. I’ve always been a … [Read more...] about Roccat’s Khan Aimo RGB brings LEDs and Hi-Res audio to its classic gaming headset
By Mat Hall Published 01/02/2018 Following what seems to now be a bit of a tradition for the franchise, Final Fantasy 12 is finally coming to PlayStation 4, in the revised form of Final Fantasy 12 The Zodiac Age. As with just about any other Final Fantasy game, The Zodiac Age isn't short, or particularly simple for that matter, and then there's the fact that this PlayStation 4 remaster isn't even of the same version we first saw in the west - it's a reworking of the 2007 International Zodiac Job System version that was released in Japan, about a year and a half after the initial launch.
