Last year we took a look at Kingston’s original HyperX Cloud Gaming headset and there really was not much to not like about it. Now on its second iteration we are quite excited to see what Kingston has done to make this headset even better. The biggest change is the addition of 7.1 virtual surround sound via a USB controller with DSP sound card. Do not worry though you still have the ability to use the Cloud II with a 3.5 mm plug if you wish. Kingston has pretty much retained the same design with the Cloud II as we saw on the original headset. This means you have that brushed aluminum build with a very comfortable headband, stitched HyperX logo, and two sets of earcups. Is this the gaming headset for you? Read on as we find out…
LUXA2 has slowly been growing on customers as they have been coming out with some really great mobile products and accessories. Today we have one of their latest products, the Lavi-S, which is a Bluetooth headset that not only sounds great but has a feature you just will not find on other headsets. First off the headset features 40 mm drivers that will give you a balanced range of bass, midrange and treble tones. The really interesting thing about this headset is that it has three different play modes. So you have Bluetooth and wired (aux in) playback, which is typical on most Bluetooth headsets, but with the Lavi-S you also have external speakers on the earcups. This allows you to share the music you are listening to with your friends and the people around you. Will this 2-in-1 device replace the need for a separate Bluetooth headset and speaker? Read on as we find out.
