New Creative gaming headset has 50mm drivers, no wires

The Sound Blaster features 50mm audio drivers, and a removable noise-canceling microphone so that you can use the Sound Blaster as a standard pair of headphones

Are you hardcore gamer and need that extra boost in communication to boost your performance when pounding away at the keyboard? If so, you may want to check out the Sound Blaster Tactic3D Omega Wireless Gaming Headset. Creative's new wireless gaming headset works with a variety of games like WoW and other role playing games, as well as for listening to music, Netflix, or chatting on Skype.

The Sound Blaster features 50mm audio drivers, and a removable noise-canceling microphone so that you can use the Sound Blaster as a standard pair of headphones. While many pairs of headphones only offer 40mm audio drivers, the Sound Blaster's 50mm should help reduce audio distortion.

The headset also features a line-in, a connector that allows recording to media streamers, TVs, and MP3 players. For gamers, nothing beats the hassle-free wireless tech, which will make it easier for you to play the game.

The new headset also looks very comfortable and utilizes customizable illuminated earcups—all the more reason to pick one. The Sound Blaster works with PS3, Xbox 360, Mac, and PC and has a suggested retail price of US $199.99.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
