Today we’re looking at the £25 Jelly Comb Wireless TV headphones. These headphones connect to any 3.5mm or stereo phono source via a low-latency wireless transmission, and are intended to be used with a TV. Let’s see how they perform.Design
These Jelly Comb wireless TV headphones come as two components: a set of circumaural headphones and a small transmitter box.
The transmitter is a small ovaloid box, with glossy black plastic on the top and matte plastic on the bottom. An LED shows when it is turned on at the top, while the side has its Micro USB power input, a power switch and a 3.5mm input.
A 3.5mm to dual phono adapter is provided, as [...]
Today we’re taking a brief look at the Just Mobile HeadStand Avant. This is a headphone stand constructed from aircraft-grade aluminium, offered at a rather premium price point at £40.Assembly
The HeadStand Avant comes packed in a thin white cardboard box. There are only four pieces; each made out of aluminium and polished to a shine.
Assembly is straightforward — just remove the screw at the bottom of the longest pole, insert it into the base, and screw it tight with a Phillips screwdriver. You do the same for the top of the pole, but this one can be unscrewed and replaced by hand. Place the remaining pole perpendicularly, and replace the [...]
The Fnatic Duel is something special: a modular gaming headset. That means you can set it up as a lightweight set of headphones for your smartphone, or as a more immersive headset for gaming at your PC.
The headphones have an impressive sonic pedigree as well, as they’re actually a rebranded version of AIAIAI’s well-regarded TMA-2 headphones. It seems like a match made in heaven, but do they work as well for PC gaming as they do in the DJ booth? Let’s find out.
It isn’t often that you find Bluetooth headphones for gamers, but that’s exactly what you get with the Creative Sound Blaster Evo Wireless. They cost a fair chunk of change at £50, so we’re hoping for great sound and solid build quality in addition to the flexibility offered by a triple-mode 3.5mm, USB and Bluetooth headset. We put ’em to the test, and here’s what we found!
Creative has been a giant in PC gaming since its very inception; its Sound Blaster cards were once synonymous with sound cards. Few people buy dedicated sound cards any more, but Creative are still finding ways to show off their long-lasting aural expertise.
Today we’re looking at one example: the P5 in-ear headphones, part of Creative’s new Sound BlasterX pro-gaming series launched at gamescom last year. The crowd at the packed event seemed to like them, but they couldn’t hear anything above the roar of the show floor anyway. Here’s our take, after going hands-on in the slightly quieter environment here at XSR Towers.
Jays are a Swedish brand with singular purpose: producing excellent headphones for mobile devices. Since 2006, they’ve produced well-received headphones in a range of styles and formats. Today, we’re looking at one of their more premium offerings: their a-Jays Four in-ear headphones. These earphones are designed for iOS devices like the iPhone, with powerful 8.6mm drivers, an in-line remote and microphone for hands-free calls. They are well presented for sure, but how do they actually perform? Let’s find out together!
