New Creative gaming headset has 50mm drivers, no wires

The Sound Blaster features 50mm audio drivers, and a removable noise-canceling microphone so that you can use the Sound Blaster as a standard pair of headphones

Are you hardcore gamer and need that extra boost in communication to boost your performance when pounding away at the keyboard? If so, you may want to check out the Sound Blaster Tactic3D Omega Wireless Gaming Headset. Creative's new wireless gaming headset works with a variety of games like WoW and other role playing games, as well as for listening to music, Netflix, or chatting on Skype.

The Sound Blaster features 50mm audio drivers, and a removable noise-canceling microphone so that you can use the Sound Blaster as a standard pair of headphones. While many pairs of headphones only offer 40mm audio drivers, the Sound Blaster's 50mm should help reduce audio distortion.

The headset also features a line-in, a connector that allows recording to media streamers, TVs, and MP3 players. For gamers, nothing beats the hassle-free wireless tech, which will make it easier for you to play the game.

The new headset also looks very comfortable and utilizes customizable illuminated earcups—all the more reason to pick one. The Sound Blaster works with PS3, Xbox 360, Mac, and PC and has a suggested retail price of US $199.99.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
