This review is from: Coboc CY-U3-AMicBMM-3-BL 3 ft. USB 3.0 A Male to Micro B Male Cable M-M
Pros: Needed new cables for charging and data transfer for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phone and other devices that use the micro USB 3.0 port. Blue color cables look nice. Works fine, no complaints.
Other Thoughts: Ordered 1.5 foot cable in addition to this and found the 3 foot cable is more practical for charging in car, at home, and at work.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SYBA GamesterGear P3210 Rumble Effect PC & PS3 Wired Gaming Headset
Pros: I got this during a sale with a great discount which is awesome for that price - I would not recommend this headset at full price.
The rumble effect makes for a nice and unique experience for gaming and movies. It might go overboard on some songs but at least the bass can be turned down on the headset controls or with some tweaking of the equalizer on the sound card software.
Though implied for Windows & PlayStation use, it also works perfectly on OS X [tested on Mavericks] including microphone support.
Cons: When the audio plug and USB plug are connected to the same device, I can hear crackle and hissing from computer activity such as scrolling pages, or hard disk activity. The intensity varies from device to device. My desktop is worse and doesn't matter if it's the front ports, back ports, USB hub, front audio, or rear audio jacks. My laptop is mostly silent aside from ocasional chirps and buzzes. I found that with the audio connected to my desktop and USB powered to anything not my desktop (laptop, for example), it's fine. If I power it through my desktop USB ports and connect it a different audio device like an iPod or laptop, it's fine too.
... so my solution for my desktop (aside from buying a new case or sound card with its own front panel connectors) is to connect the USB to a wall charger. I lose microphone support but since I don't use it, it's not a dealbreaker.
Due to the plastic earpad and headband parts hitting each other, it makes clacking sounds if you move a bit. Sticking a thin piece of rubber where they would touch silences it.
There's in no discomfort wearing the headset with glasses but the earpads rubbing on the glasses frames will make rubbing noises when you move your head.
Other Thoughts: You can connect it to any headphone port (smartphones, tablets, 3DS, etc.) as long as the headset is powered through through USB. Any USB charger will do. I hooked up the audio jack to the iPhone 5 and used the 5W charger to power the headset. A USB extension cord is needed to make it practical as the audio and USB plugs share the same wire and can only be separated 1 foot apart.
Just for kicks I attached it to the USB camera connection kit attached to the iPad 2. The iPad does recognize the headset but the audio does not work.
Pros: After multiple rebuilds and cable managing, my old PC speaker that served me for over a decade broke. It feels weird hearing silence when turning on the desktop.
So I got this as a replacement.
My old cable was long enough to reach the front of the case but with this short one it's at least loud enough from where it is on the motherboard connector.
Cons: I know there's cheaper alternatives elsewhere and I could've rummage through old PCs to get a speaker.READ FULL REVIEW
