A vibrating headset I hear you say?
Well, yes... that's what this is. Whoever thought of the concept can get a high-five from me. These things are awesome.
Let's look at the basics first;
Soft cushioned earpieces which do very well for cancelling out background sounds.... such as your significant other telling you to "get off that game and come down for dinner" or the sound of your million watt fans keeping your gaming beast cool. The headband is nice and comfortable too, made from the same material. And of course, they're adjustable.
The boom is nice and adjustable, fits vertically too if you just want to push it away, good quality too! The bendy arm isn't super flexible, but it does get into some fancy positions. Foam covered pickup, so don't go sucking on it...
The controls for the headset come down to around your ribcage, perfect hight to access the volume, microphone mute switch and the all important variable vibrator for those... intense moments when you want to feel the bass as well as hear it.
So, onto the vibration... well, it appears that the earpieces have mini motors in them which, when connected to the battery pack or a spare USB slot give you a little extra bass by means of shaking your head around a bit... just make sure you turn it down when playing loud explosions... actually, forget that. Turn it up!!
No additional software is required, they appear to have a built in EQ which picks up the bass and converts it into rumbles...
Overall, brilliant quality for both the mic pickup and the soud output. They are a little on the heavy side, but what do you expect when you have vibration for your ears?
Don't lose the plug for the vibrations whatever you do... it's completely detachable and I've lost it a few times as I've disconnected it completely when not in use.
