This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 2100 Circumaural Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset
Pros: - Great sound
- Great Battery life
- Great Software (for Windows, anyway)
- Works well with toggling between computers (such as on a USB switch)
- Comfortable for my head
- Surprisingly light weight
- Mac Compatible
- Can get very loud (though still sounds good)
- Very robust design
- Incredibly good price for what they are
Cons: - No Mac Software (though listed as "mac compatible", which it is otherwise), therefore no 7.1 sound on Mac
Other Thoughts: I just got a roommate so I needed some headphones for gaming/movies/whatever. I also have a USB switch and a 2 computer setup including a Mac. I use my USB switch and it quickly detects in Windows and Mac, without hardware emulation (basically a "dumb" switch).
I don't have a ton of experience with headphones but I tried some Gamecon wired headphones to have a basis for comparison. These edged out those pretty easily in a lot of respects including bass and comfort. I was not expecting them to be so light considering they were battery powered.
I am happy with the battery life but I keep them wired to USB (note the USB port is for power ONLY, requires wireless dongle for audio) so as to not wear out the battery. These headphones feel like they will last a very long time.
Make sure you enable 7.1 audio in the software after you install it. Corsair software is not intrusive but gives you a task-bar icon. You may want to tinker with the equalizer in the software. You can make your own presets but it comes with some good ones by default.
This review is from: ORICO H4013-U3-BK USB 3.0 4 Ports Hub
Pros: - USB 3
- Able to be powered
Cons: - No power adapter included
- 5DC input, not sure on tip polarity as it is unmarked
- Requires USB A to A cable (instead of standard A to B)
Other Thoughts: Just know what you're getting and what you're not. I'm satisfied.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Extremely low profile
- Sturdy Design
Cons: - "Only" capable of 1200VA (~1200watts)
Other Thoughts: Another reviewer knocked off a few stars for its less-than-standard power rating. ~1200Watts is probably okay though. I suppose it's something to be aware of if you're running that kind of PSU.READ FULL REVIEW
