This review is from: Bioshock 2 Playstation3 Game
Pros: Great single player experience the first time through. I really liked the story and the feel of the game.
Cons: Replay value is a bit low as while there are a bunch of different endings, they're all similar, and theres only about 3 events that your actions will get you to see different parts of the story.
Multiplayer would have been ranked as meh if the game was released in 1998. If you've played TF2 or any modern multiplayer game you'll loathe it.
Other Thoughts: Played it through on hard the first time through with vita-chambers off and it really added to the tension without being unbearably difficult. I died a lot and always had quick save on my mind, but that only made it more fun (maybe i'm weird).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sennheiser - Professional DJ styled - Closed Dynamic Bass Headphones (HD 202)
Pros: I'm slightly torn about these. On very low volume (office environment) they offer no better sound quality then the $30 pair of sonys i picked up at the grocery store. However the sound quality is very noticeable when you crank them up to a level that would probably give me hearing loss if I kept it up (i wear headphones for 8-9 hours a day). Also listening to both pairs side by side (sony mdr-g42 and these) the bass is more defined and clear on all volume levels. Mids and highs don't get better till you really crank them up.
Cons: Slight physical conditioning is required.
These aren't really tight on my head like some people are saying (i'm 6'4" 280lbs), but after my first hour of use my ears were really warm and had started to sweat.
Also when I talk my voice sounds really far away from me. I have to take them off when I talk to people or it gets disorienting. Also for some reason my right eye watered uncontrollably for the first hour of use. They're not uncomfortable or anything, I think it's just due to the sound deprivation. I'm not used to wearing head phones that block outside sound and it's making me a little dizzy.
I'm taking a egg off due to all of the above in addition to the sound quality not being noticeably different on low volume than my old 'grocery store' headphones. Take it with a grain of salt, but I expected better from the sennheiser name. If I could give it a score of 4.5 I would.
Other Thoughts: Cord is long. Good for me because I'm running it through my desk. Bad for others because they'd want to wear these as earmuffs while jogging in the winter (you'll stay warm!).
I'm not an audiophile, but I can tell the difference between these and a pair of stock head phones.
These would be perfect for listening to music with a lot of bass at high volumes.
These are not great for listening to music quietly in an office or wearing while talking to other people.
Just found out that I can actually crank these up to a moderately loud volume before the guy next to me can hear them.
I've only had these for a single work day.
This review is from: SanDisk Sansa Clip 1.0" Black 2GB MP3 Player
Pros: It's tiny and weighs almost nothing. I clipped this to the back of a pair of 'behind the head' headphones and didn't even really notice the weight. Take the clip off and you can fit it inside a zippo lighter case with room to spare.
Battery recharges pretty quick although the indicator doesn't seem all that accurate. I have listened to it for 12 hours straight through off a questionably full charge and it still had time to go.
Software does what it's supposed to do. Pretty easy to grasp.
Cons: Volume button: If you press and hold the volume down button it takes a really long time to go from full blast to mute. Probably about 15 seconds. Tip, if you just hit the button really quick you can do it in about 2 seconds. It's kinda annoying till you figure it out, but not bad enough to take an egg off.
USB mode. I got this refurbished and therefor had no instruction manual. Basically if you want to treat this like a thumb drive you have to go in and change the usb mode around. I guess the default mode is cool if you want to keep it synced with your music collection, but I really like just tossing mp3's on it and going. It's nothing you can't figure out with 10 seconds and google, so also no egg off for this.
Other Thoughts: FM radio reception seems to be weaker than what you get in a car, but it works fine to tune into the gym TV's. Maybe that's a con for others, but I bought the thing so I wouldn't have to listen to the radio.
It's a cool little toy and worth a lot more than I paid for it.
