Author: Guest_Jim_*


For those looking for a new headset to show off your love for the Gears of War franchise, HyperX has announced a new CloudX Revolver headset featuring a Gears of War design. It has been co-designed with Microsoft and The Coalition, the developers of the upcoming Gears of War 4, so it will perfectly compliment the Xbox One S Gears of War 4 Limited Edition Bundle, and the Crimson Omen Limited Edition Xbox One controller. The headset will be shipping in September

CloudX headsets are tested and approved to work with Xbox One controllers, but are also compatible with Windows with a two-meter PC extension cable. The headset has been designed to give studio-grade quality, so you can accurately hear your opponents from far away. It also features in-line controls to adjust volume and mute the microphone when needed, a leather headband and memory foam for hours of comfortable gameplay, and a steel frame for durability. To make sure others can hear you clearly, the microphone uses noise cancelling.

If you are attending Comic-Con International: San Diego, you can get a look at the headset on July 20, at the Xbox booth. Its next appearance will be at the first ever official Gears eSports Open North American even in Columbus, Ohio, on July 30-31. When it ships, the headset will be backed by a two-year warranty.

If you need some new additions to your gaming experience, Tt eSPORTS has you covered. The new CRONOS RGB 7.1 Gaming Headset brings your audio to new levels of sonic clarity, while the DRACONEM RGB Gaming Mouse Pad adds a little lighted flair to your desk. The CRONOS RGB 7.1 Gaming Headset sports seven RGB colors and three lighting effects on the Battle Dragon logo to make your headset stand out from the crowd or just provide a little bit of light during a late night fragfest. It uses 40mm drivers to help deliver the audio, with the built-in digital sound card providing 16-bit audio at 48KHz. The 7.1 virtual surround sound provides a 3D gaming experience, letting you hear enemies from all directions to help you figure out where they are. Plus you can feel the explosions right on your head as they happen. The included software lets you adjust the speaker direction and distance, setting it up to mimic your ideal 7.1 setup. There are 12 preset modes to select from, with a 10-band EQ you can adjust manually to better match whatever game you're playing.

The CRONOS RGB uses memory foam on the headband and ear cups for a comfortable fit, with the ear cushions featuring a 25mm thickness for a better feel during a long session. The three-section headband has LYCRA fabric for a soft feel on the top of your head, while the entire headset can fold flat for travel (and to keep the headband and ear cups safe). The boom mic on the CRONOS RGB headset is flexible to let you position it however you want, or just move it up out of the way. It sports an in-line control for volume adjustment and to mute the microphone, as well as an RGB switch for the colors.

Moving over to the DRACONEM RGB Gaming Mouse Pad, it takes the tried and true DRACONEM mouse pad and adds a line of lights around the entire edge (plus the logo). The RGB lighting has four modes to switch between and five different brightness levels, with two buttons on the mouse pad itself to change between everything without the need for software. The mouse pad surface sports a micro-textured finish to give you both high accuracy and effortless speed in your games. The non-slip rubber base keeps the mouse pad where you lay it, so no worrying about the DRACONEM RGB sliding about while gaming.

The Tt eSPORTS CRONOS RGB 7.1 Gaming Headset arrives in the third quarter of this year for $69.99, while the DRACONEM RGB Gaming Mouse Pad arrives at the same time for $39.99.

Author: Tobias Thydal

ASUS makes products that fit in almost any PC category, and headsets are one of them. The company already has both the Vulcan Pro with and without ANC and the Orion headsets, and now the company expands the product line with its new Cerberus gaming headset. The headset has the usual ROG red and black theme with round ear cups and a self-adjusting frame. The cable is 1.2 m long, which can be extended with a 1.3 m splitter cable, so it can reach all the way behind your desk and down to the back of your PC.

The headset has two large 60 mm neodynium-magnet drivers that, according to ASUS, "deliver unrivaled punch and audio immersion that's utterly convincing, allowing the wearer to clearly hear positional audio and game effects," while also offering "faithful audio reproduction, be it roomy stadium rock, crisp and clear spoken-word listening or lifelike movie soundtracks." The ear cups has been fitted with 100 mm noise-isolating ear cushions, so you will not get disturbed during an important match or listening session, while also ensuring that your ears will not be hurting horrendously after a 5 hour gaming session. Furthermore, the headset comes with a dual-microphone design, which ASUS does not elaborate on. 

There is no details on a release date or price, and we will have to wait for a review to know how they sound.
