With the ever-growing popularity of online gaming and gaming in general, headsets designed for video games are becoming more and more popular. Gaming headsets distance themselves from standard ones primarily with features such as inline controls, comfort over extended periods, very clear audio, and durability. In addition to these fairly standard headset features, you may often find them equipped with amplifiers, built-in sound cards, and audio processing. These features typically separate budget headsets from the premium ones.
Today, we have the Yapster Blaster by TekNmotion. Bridging the gap between basic and premium headsets, the headset has a fairly basic feature list: adjustable mic, inline controls, and separate 3.5 mm analog plugs. What separates the Yapster Blaster from other budget headsets is two features, the included USB amplifier and Xbox 360 compatibility. So TekNmotion is promising an enhanced gaming experience with this unique package – let’s see how it delivers.
The Yapster Blaster comes in clear plastic packaging, allowing a clear view of the contents inside. This means in the place of a photo of the headset, you get a view of the headset itself. Around the back, you get a basic list of features alongside a diagram of how the headset and amplifier are set up. The right side presents just a recap of the front's list of features, while the left side gives you detailed specifications on the headset.
Inside the package, you’ll find the headset itself, a quick start guide, the USB amplifier, a 2.5 mm microphone adapter, and a 3.5 mm to RCA adapter.
Now, let's take a closer look at the headset.
