Plantronics updates GameCom 777 headset

Posted in Plantronics by Shane McGlaun on June 17th, 2010

Way back in 2008 I mentioned the then new GameCom 777 USB virtual 5.1 surround sound headset. The headset was for gamers and had a USB amp and normal mic and headphone plugs too. Plantronics has announced a new updated version of the GameCom 777.

The new version of the headset has the same design and also has the USB amp included. The main difference is the new version has simulated 7.1-surround sound. The headset has a hide-away mic that’s out of the way when you don’t need it.

The MI-SPORT MP3 Player Headphones are waterproof and wireless headphones that are great for using when working out or just being out in the rain. They feature a fully integrated waterproof MP3 player. You can use it while swimming or hanging out by the pool, knowing they will be safe from water.

The headset includes waterproof soft sponge earplugs made to be worn underneath the headphones, that will block water out but allow sound in. The controls are on the exterior and your album text or personalized playlist is read and voiced back to you, in either a male of female voice or even a different language.

I’m not a doctor and I don’t play one on TV, but these headphone stethoscopes could make me a hit with the ladies. You know how they’re always on the lookout for doctors.

These are from creative agency Antrepo Design, but sadly they are not actual products. Not yet. Hopefully we’ll be able to buy these someday soon though. Take a deep breath. Again. What is it Doc? I’m not sure, but this Pink Floyd song is rocking.

Ultrasone Edition 8 Palladium headphones are massively expensive

Posted in Headphones by Shane McGlaun on January 13th, 2010

I am a fan of headphones that sound good for watching movies and playing games on my PC. Good sound is also nice for the few occasions when I want to listen to some music. I am far from an audiophile though and stick to reasonably priced headphones.

If you are an audiophile of the type that will pay big money for a great set of headphones Ultrasone has unveiled its new Edition 8 Palladium Edition headphones. The things feature natural S-Logic surround sound and have 30-ohm impedance.
