ROCCAT VIRE: the 'lightest PC headset in the world'

Gaming earphones have an in-line microphone, weigh only 15 grams

German gaming peripheral manufacturer ROCCAT has released details of its latest product, the VIRE gaming headset. The ROCCAT VIRE combines a set of ear-buds with an in-line microphone to deliver what the company calls “brilliant sound” despite the headset only weighing 15 grams.

The company claims this is a trend set in Korea, where hardcore professional gamers use earphones in preference to headphones, as normal gaming headphones like the Razer Carcharias, Logitech G35 and Plantronics GameCom 777 are too heavy, warm and lead to fatigue. The ROCCAT VIRE comes with an additional adapter cable to ensure the earphones can be used with either a PC or a portable device such as an MP3 player, iPhone or Blackberry.

The company will release the VIRE gaming headset in July for €39.99 in several European countries.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

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.
