Posted in Creative by Conner Flynn on January 20th, 2009

Creative Tournament gaming headset HS-1100Creative’s latest headset is designed for gaming competitions. The Creative Tournament Gaming Headset HS-1100 is the first USB headset to be powered by Sound Blaster X-Fi with Silencer technology. Creative’s Silencer is a breakthrough in voice technology that allows the user’s voice to be clearly heard by other gamers, because Silencer eliminates ambient background noise to provide improved voice quality. So feel free to crank up your tunes in the background, because Silencer will block out the noise. Also, no one on the other end will hear your mother yelling at your 30-something ass and telling you to get a job.

It features built-in dual microphones and advanced time-based algorithms. The Creative Tournament Gaming Headset HS-1100 will be available in Singapore from April 2009 at the suggested retail price of about $160 US.

Nikon multimedia Wi-Fi Headset with 8GB & a browserHere’s an odd one from Nikon, but it’s no camera. The Media Port UP300 and UP300x video headset aims to be a wearable computer. The device basically looks like a pair of headphones with a small display, but has some nice specs. It features up to 8GB of flash memory for videos, music and file storage, Wi-Fi, and even, get this, a full internet browser.

The 300x model, even sports motion control. Browsing may be a challenge, who knows. You can also use the Wi-Fi connection to download audio and video content directly. The 300x will cost you $587. Looks like we are now on our way to becoming the Borg. If the next one requires that you dock yourself in a borg ship, I’m heading for the hills.

JORDY Magnification headset

JORDY Magnification headsetYou know Scott Summers, the dude from the X-Men? Yeah, this is his grandmother. Apparently, they share the same mutant gene, resulting in cyclops eyewear. Actually, this is the JORDY. (Joint Optical Reflective Display) A head-mounted magnifier from Enhanced Vision that let’s those with poor vision see objects at a distance. Great for race tracks and the like, making granny really stand out in her final years.

The thing has 4 viewing modes, full-color, black and white, high-contrast positive and negative. A 30x magnification, but you can get 50x with the optional desktop, auto-focus with digital zoom too. The name was clearly inspired by Geordi LaForge, the visor wearing Enterprise crew member. That being the case, you’d think they could have streamlined this thing a bit.

The Mooon+: Not just another touchscreen phone

The Mooon+: Not just another touchscreen phone
This is an interesting concept phone called the Mooon+ and it isn’t just another iPhone wannabe. It has a nice clean design, with a large touchscreen, sleek design, and a digital camera. It’s pretty sexy, but it’s not all about looks. It has some fascinating features. For instance, the mouth piece detaches and turns into a bluetooth headset. It will also charge itself via the headset.

Designed by Sunman Kwon, it pretty much solves the problem of cellphone owners who lose their headsets, by simply incorporating the accessory into the phone’s mouth piece.

CES 2008

Joby Zivio headset with retractable “boom”

Posted in Bluetooth,CES 2008,Headsets by Darrin Olson on January 7th, 2008

Joby Zivio Bluetooth headsetWhile most Bluetooth headsets we’ve seen lately are concerned with being discrete and then coming up with elaborate technology to focus on only noise from your moth, Joby is coming out with a new model that helps state the obvious when you are on a call. The new Zivio Bluetooth headset is being showcased by Joby at this year’s CES in Las Vegas this week, and features a long antenna like “boom” with a microphone at the end.

The headset is still relatively small at 13 grams and a length of 53.5mm, but with the microphone extended it more than doubles the overall length bringing it up to 137mm. The headset will continue to work with the microphone boom retracted, but when you receive a call and extend the telephone operator-like mic, it will improve your voice clarity and help drown out other background noise, not to mention leave those around you in no doubt that you are taking a call.
