Rosewill RHTS-8206 USB Connector 5.1 Channel Vibration Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Superb and Durable 10/24/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RHTS-8206 USB Connector 5.1 Channel Vibration Gaming Headset

Pros: The sound is impeccable and the vibration isn't just a gimmick, it really does add to the experience and makes the sound more whole; with the right EQ it massages your head!

The fact that this headset has lasted me 2 FULL YEARS is outstanding. These have seen some abuse too - drops, being thrown hard once, the cord constantly being run over on carpet by an office chair, my IR headtracking experiment, and numerous yanks from the cord getting caught under my chair wheels.

Everything still works just fine (after 2 repairs, one user error, the other the result of abuse) and outperforms plenty of expensive headsets, not counting bullsh** brands like Beats and such, though I've yet to hear Astro's headsets.

The wires likely won't short even if they fray (glitz wire)

Cons: After about a year the strain reliefs on the cables started to, ironically, destroy the sheathing and wires, beginning a rat's nest. The wire sheathing also slowly becomes more stiff over time - likely the cause of the fraying and sheath breakage - but as does all rubber, especially in Florida.
After another half-year or so, the subwoofers went out due to the wire being ripped apart at the ear-cup-entry strain relief. Luckily, none of the 4 or so frayed wires (only the sub's wires were fully broken) had shorted, because the wires were coated in a lacquer (glitz wire). I repaired this after a few months of dealing with the lack of subs and the frayed wires, simply by stripping past the nest and resoldering that wire to the board inside the ear cup.

Other Thoughts: The reason I gave it 5 instead of 4 stars, even though it wasn't immediately or directly damaged by me was the fact that it took a year and a half of moderate abuse before any one thing stopped working, and even then it was non-essential and easily reparable.

I've grown up around all kinds of professional audio equipment, so I'd like to say I've heard plenty to make a good judgement.

Since there are multiple drivers in each ear cup, each driver can focus on reproducing a certain range of frequencies; this prevents drivers from trying to play multiple sounds and cancelling its own movement, effectively muffling itself.

The trick to resoldering the glitz wire is to use a blob of solder to melt the lacquer off the wire.

Silverstone SST-FP37B USB 3.0 USB 3.0 Card Reader, Support SDXC Format with Extra Silver Front Panel (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This reader is great! I haven't had any problems with it in the 6 months I've owned it.
Read and Write speeds on USB 3.0 are limited only by my USB 3.0 flash drive, but I've been getting ~110MB/s Write and the Read speeds are somewhere over 200, but the process finishes to quickly to actually read anything.
My UHS-I Micro SD flash drives also read and write at over 50 MB/s
Monitor LED works fine

Cons: USB port is upside-down, big whoop
