Here’s another chance I get to enjoy something that I like doing, reviewing more cans. This time it’s the iFrogz Earpollution CS40s headphones that arrived today. I would like to extend an apology to the T.N.T courier driver that was chased by my dog when they were attempting delivery of the headphones. He was finally coaxed out of the truck when I held up my dog and confirmed that it was about the size of a coke can with legs.

NOISEHUSH NX70 MultiMedia HEADSET - Reviewed

Lets get one thing out of the way first – the question of why do we need a headset? If you are listening to music only, you would simply go for a pair or headphones or earphones. Most of us would use the microphone which comes built into our laptops, mobile phones and other devices today. Almost all mobile devices now come with built in speakers and microphones, so why get a separate unit to clutter our lives further still? But these alternatives do have their drawbacks. Stereo headphones will enable you to listen to everything, but have you really tried talking at the same time? I think more often you will be repeating loudly to all in the vicinity – “CAN YOU HEAR ME?” And, the built-in mics of most devices today are usually just added on as after-thoughts and don’t really perform as you would expect.

And not to mention too, this is an essential piece of weaponry for the armchair warrior who spends countless days on his gaming machine, with the only social life being chatting with his online gaming clan. Indeed, such a sociopath cannot afford to have his headset break down or fail on him. It is his only link other humans out there.

So, there is still a need for a device which can do both – listen and talk. In this respect, the NX70 Multimedia Headset from Noisehush works well and satisfies these needs. Let me elaborate a bit more.

Read more: SteelSeries 7H Fnatic Edition Stereo Headset - ReviewedAfter reviewing their Diablo III-themed Sibera V2 headset, I was thrilled to get in touch with SteelSeries again to see what other audio candy they had to offer. They were happy to get in touch with a few more models, the first of which is this one: The 7H Fnatic Edition stereo headset.

It's a different beast than the Diablo III V2, so let's talk about just what to expect.

I have been asked to review the Noisehush NX26 and NX22 Stereo Headphones.

As I really enjoy listening to music using headphones, I quickly put my hand up for this test drive and from my understanding, both these headphones are due to be released shortly in the Australian market.

The NX26 are shown on the left, while the NX22 are the larger headphones on the right.

NoiseHush NX80 Stereo Headset – mini Review

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Audio

Read more: NoiseHush NX80 Stereo Headset – mini ReviewEarlier we reviewed a bluetooth car speaker from NoiseHush which performed quite well so we thought to have a look at their latest stereo headset, the NX80. Two things stand out: yes, that colour! The cables are a flamingo red, I suppose. Not too gaudy and easily found in the mishmash of wires and cables that clutter my desk. The other thing is the cables are also flat to ensure they stay tangle free. A few of the standard headsets that came with my mobile phones frustrated me quite a bit when I had to unravel them every time! So the NX80 scores a big plus here.

I recently had the opportunity to test out a new addition to Jabra’s headset range – The Jabra Sport Corded. Jabra claim that they are a high quality headset built to military specs’ with wind and rain resistant components that are still being able to offer a comfortable fit. So you can power on exercising while listening to music or being on the phone, all during a lovely tropical shower… But we’re not taking their word for it!

Samsung Series 5 Home Entertainment System (HT-D5550w) - Reviewed

Read more: Samsung Series 5 Home Entertainment System (HT-D5550w) - ReviewedFollowing up on our previous review of the Samsung Series 6 LED Smart TV we now complete this write-up with our 3-D experiences and the installation and testing of the most popular home theatre option, the Series 5 Home Entertainment System.

In the words of George Lucas, the renowned filmmaker, a good sound makes up 50% of the whole viewing experience. How true this is we all know from visiting a movie cinema where surround sound dramatises the special effects of the film. It is somewhat surprising then that we could be satisfied with a few tiny speakers on a large but very flat LED screen, speakers that are also downfiring, meaning the sound is not aimed directly at you. A good sound system, compared to that on a TV, already can be had for a few hundred dollars. We are going slightly higher with a system that retails for $899. Again, as I mentioned in the previous review, I'll be surprised if you actually have to pay this much in your local shop.

The HT D5550 model from Samsung that we are reviewing today is a popular home theatre option with four so-called tallboys plus the centre speakers and a subwoofer.
