Headset Roundup Autumn/Winter 2015

Today’s article is the first in a series of peripheral roundups which will hopefully help you identify some key products when considering a new purchase this winter. (Technically another recent round-up is worth your time too, you can check that out here… Audio Product Roundup). So lets get started with our Headset Roundup – Autumn Winter 2015.

Headset Roundup – Autumn Winter 2015 – Recommended PC Headset

Audio Technica ATH-PDG1

“For audio quality, that’s the best aspect of the headset. The main mic is decent, good clarity for most uses… tho podcasters/streamers will still benefit from a stand alone model. To listen to the PDG1 is excellent across a range of audio types. All to often we get “gaming” headsets in for review and they are average, at best, in music playback. The PDG1 does very well on that front providing a nice balanced sound.”

“As far as sound quality goes, there are number of profiles built in which vary sound based on the connection used and media being played. Music, movies and gaming are all catered for, as is noise cancelling for different environments on the mic (these certainly offer different experiences so be sure to test which works best in your environment). That gives us plenty to play with, especially combined with the virtual surround sound.”

Headset Roundup – Autumn Winter 2015 – Recommended Multi Platform Headset

SteelSeries Siberia Elite Prism


“As far as performance goes, the quality offered by the Siberia Elite Prism is good, complimenting the high level of build quality and features. Through the USB connection/card we get a nice detailed sound which certainly favours games, movies and streaming. Vocals are clearly key to the soundscape of this product. There is plenty of bass when required and the level of configuration available from the SteelSeries Engine Software is good.”

Headset Roundup – Autumn Winter 2015 – One For The Kids


And finally, its the Creative Sound Blaster Jam. We’ve not actually reviewed this but have been playing about with it over the last while. What is it? It’s a lightweight on ear wireless headset for PC/Mac and Smartphone (Android/iOS). It uses bluetooth and NFC with a talk/play time of 12 hours and has buttons built in for answering calls or controlling playback. To us, it solves a great problem…kids. We’ve lost count of how many headsets our children have gone through, mainly because of the wire/connector being broken rather than the headset itself. Connect this up to their tablet/PC and you should be good to go for significantly longer… just remember to have them charge it every so often!
