Key Features in this PulseWave 2 Review

This headset is produced by TekNmotion, and they really do boast some very versatile features for this very modestly priced headset. Let’s get the nitty-gritty technical features out of the way first, here’s a list of the main features offered with the PulseWave 2.
  • 2.1 Stereo or 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound USB or Standard 3.5mm Mini-Jack connectors. This seems a bit jargony, but it basically means that this headset is promising some really high-quality audio.
  • Master Control Box. A box attached to the headphone wire which allows easy access to functions such as volume control and mic control.
  • Detachable Microphone. If talking as you game isn’t your thing then you can just whip the mic off, easy as you like. There’s also a mute button when you have the mic attached for those private moments. Very handy indeed.
  • Soft and Comfortable Full-Surface Ear Cups. This headset features big cushiony pads which cover your entire ear – comfort is important in the heat of battle!

Some More Features Offered by the PulseWave 2

With readability and your comfort in mind I’ve broken down, he features into what I consider to be the main features (above) and secondary features which are still worth mentioning so that you’re not overwhelmed by a bombardment of technical features.
  • Exterior Decorative Lights. Simply an additional features which add to the aesthetics of this headset.
  • External Battery Pack. Allows you to power your headset away from the computer. Also, allows you to power the decorative lights although I’m not entirely sure why you’d want to.
  • Sound and Vibration Intensity Adjustment Control. Pretty standard on a gaming headset, but essential.
  • Adjustable Padded Headband. Leather covered cushion headband allows you to fit this headset comfortably whether your head is large or petite.
  • Listen to Your iPod or Other MP3 Device. Just plug it in. Easy.

A PulseWave 2 Review

TekNmotion Pulsewave 2 gaming headphones

Well what can I say, this one really does seem to get plastered with 4 and 5-star ratings all over Amazon. I suppose the logical place to start would be the ease of installing the software for this headset. A CD comes included, and all you literally have to do is put the CD into your computer, plug in the headset … and you’re ready to game! Regarding durability, there seems to be the odd complaint about flimsy plastic. However, most customers agree that the headset is incredibly durable compared to competitors of the same price. It’s certainly comforting to know you’re headset isn’t going to fall apart in the middle of battle. You know those headphones that absolutely kill your ears after an hour or two? Well, you’ll be glad to hear that this isn’t one of those headsets. While this is not the most comfortable headset on the market, it is certainly miles ahead of anything else for this price. With soft cushion padding around our ears and across the top of your head, you can’t really go wrong. Given the modest pricing of this headset, there will, of course, be some sound quality issues … But only for audiophiles. Or that is someone who has a great interest in high-fidelity sound reproduction. For the average gamer, music fan, or indeed movie watcher this headset will provide excellent sound quality. The removable mic is great. Slot it in when you want to use it and slot it out (or mute if you prefer) when you don’t. The mic is very responsive, and you’ll have no trouble being heard through Skype or online games. Lastly, I’m glad to report, and I assume you’ll be happy to learn that yes, you can indeed turn off the lights on the headset. You know, for those times when you’re not gaming in the middle of a disco! Thankfully I have no real flaws to mention. The only thing that seems to come up now and then is the comfort levels. And it’s not so many complaints as suggestions for improvement. As mentioned above, not the most comfortable headset on the market. But as long as you set the headband to the right length you’re golden. It’ll blow any other headset for this price out of the water regarding comfort. There are also a few reports of headset failure after short periods of time. However, these are RARE and as I’m sure you know you’re safe in the hands of Amazon and their fantastic customer service. All in all the PulseWave 2 is a great headset. And I don’t just mean a great headset for this price, I mean it’s a great headset full stop. The attractive low price simply adds to the already sweet deal. I may even have to pick a set up myself.

Motorola H720 Review

Motorola H720
It’s time to review another Motorola Bluetooth headset.
In this Motorola H720 Review, I will be covering why this Bluetooth headset is one of the easiest headphones, to use. Motorola has always created quality products at an affordable price. So I was not too scared buying this headset, as Motorola has created some incredible products. Plus, one of their headsets is on my top 10 Bluetooth headset list. Which is the Motorola S305? Click Here To Read My Motorola S305 Review As I thought, this Bluetooth headset was no exception, and I could not wait to write this Motorola H720 Review, to tell you about it. But if you do not have any experience with other Bluetooth headsets, it is hard to choose which Bluetooth headset to get. That is why I am here, writing this Motorola H720 Review, to help you determine which Bluetooth headset to get.

Design & Comfort

We will start of this Motorola H720 Review, by explaining a bit about how the device feels to wear and what it looks like. The H720 wearing style is on-ear. What do on-ear means? On-ear says that the Bluetooth headset goes over the ear, instead of into the ear. Personally, I am glad they made it on-ear because it feels a lot more comfortable. Especially when you wear the headset for a long time. Now to the design part of this Motorola H720 Review. The design is pretty dull, I like ugly designs, but that is just me. I know a lot of people would have preferred a bit more stylish design. The headset feels a lot smaller than in the pictures, which I think is a good thing. The last thing you want is to carry around a huge Bluetooth headset. So that is one of the advantages, of this headset. Motorola H720 review

This technology is the reason why I told you earlier in the Motorola H720 Review, that this Bluetooth headset is one of the easiest headphones to use. When someone calls you, and you are wearing your Motorola H720, the only thing that you will have to do is a single flip. Then when the conversation is over, all you have to do is flip it back, and it hangs up immediately. You do not even have to pick up your phone or anything; even my mom could use this headset without any problems. See how easy it is? Like I told you earlier in this Motorola H720 Review. Noise Reduction The noise reduction feature makes sure that any background noise will be removed, to make your voice stands out. I also wanted to say in this Motorola H720 Review, that I have tested this feature and they truly did a great job. I called one of my best friends to get some feedback on the microphone, and he said it sounded obvious and crisp. Motorola

Sound Quality

This is probably the most important part of this Motorola H720 Review because you do not want to buy a headset that has bad quality sound. That is why I wrote this Motorola H720 Review, to help you! I have used this headset for a few months now, and I must say that I am impressed with the sound quality in this headset. The sound is obvious, and you can easily hear it is high quality.

Talk Time

I almost could not wait, to tell you this, while I was writing the Motorola H720 Review. The talk time on this Bluetooth headset is up to incredible 8 hours. It is one of my headsets, that has the longest talk time. When it is on standby, it will last for 11 days.

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Excellent Sound Quality
  • Noise Reduction
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Plain Design

Jabra Wave Review

Jabra Wave
Here it is, my very first Jabra Bluetooth headset and therefore my first Jabra Wave review. I am very excited about telling you my first experience with a Jabra headset. Ok, enough with the boring stuff, let us dig right into it.

Design

The Jabra Wave got a sleek and sporty look, as you can see from the pictures. Although it may seem a bit plastic is looking at first. The Jabra Wave headset comes in two two different colours: Black & Red. Both fit very well with the design, so it is a matter of personal preference whether you want the black or the red one.

Sound

For a mid-range Bluetooth headset, this headset got a unique sound. I can hear my friends even with backgrounds noise like a car engine when I am driving. So if you plan on using this headset while driving, that should not be a problem at all. Of course, the sound does not quite compare with the Bose Bluetooth headset, but it is getting there, no doubt about that.

Microphone

As always I ask my friends for feedback when I call them, they say they can hear very clearly. Jabra also did a great with the noise and wind reduction. Take a look at the video from Jabra below. Jabra WAVE – Clearer Talk With Wind-Noise Reduction

Jabra Wave Bluetooth Headset

Power

The Jabra Wave headset supports up to 6 hours of talk time and up to an incredible eight days of standby

Comfort

The headset is made out of very light plastic, which means it is one of the lighter headphones out there. It fits very well around the ear, although it hurts a bit when you have worn it for a long time, nothing significant, I think they could have done this better.

Jabra Wave Review – Cons

  •  Comfort decrease when wearing for a long time
  •  Plastic looking design

Jabra Wave Review – Pros

  •  Phenomenal sound
  •  The headset comes in different colours
  •  Well-executed noise and wind reduction
  • Long talk time
sexy and captivating

Jabra Wave Review – Conclusion

As you can see the cons are heavily outweighed by the pro. So all in all if you want a solid Bluetooth headset with kick-a** sound, a decent quality microphone and do not mind a bit plastic looking design than the Jabra Wave is for you.  

Nokia BH-905i Review

Nokia BH-905i review
In this Nokia BH-905i Review, I’m going to lay out my honest opinion about the product. Since I own one of these headsets, together with a more expensive Sennheiser headset, it’s possible to make some fair comparisons.

Nokia BH-905i Review – Pros

It’s kind of hard not to fall in love with the Nokia BH 905i, the minute you have it in your hands.It is smaller than it appears in advertisements, but that makes it even more compact. It were durable and made from both plastic and metal. The BH-905i comes with extra head padding, which gives it a comfortable fit for longer usage. Like any good headphones, you can adjust it to accommodate various head shapes and sizes. The right earpiece is the command control centre of the Nokia BH-905i. There you will find the Pause and Play, Forward, Rewind, and the Power buttons. In the left earpiece, you’ll find the Nokia 3-pin charger, Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), as well as a notification light. There are a few noticeable differences between the BH-905 and 905i. The latter has the smaller headband and is a bit more stylish. It’s also much lighter, and that makes it a crowd-pleaser when it comes to wearing it on long trips. The Active Noise Cancellation makes most background noises non-existent, or at the least tolerable. That includes humming jet engines, small crowds and active kids. The Nokia BH 905i quickly transforms from wireless to wired headset at the click of a button. A strong Li-ion Polymer Rechargeable Battery will get you up to 24 hours of talk and music playback time. That time is cut down to about 14 hours when the ANC is activated, and it takes only two hours to charge fully. The voice quality is superb! No one will even know you’re talking to them through a headset. The quality is that good. Nokia BH-905i

Nokia BH 905i Review – Cons

One thing that might be noticeable to some is the slight hissing sound that occurs when the ANC is on. It’s not noticeable while the music is playing, but between songs, it can usually be heard. You really can’t beat the price. If you look hard enough, you can pick up a Nokia BH 905i for just under $200. That’s much cheaper than a Sennheiser. So, if you’re looking for a high-quality Bluetooth that’s easy on your wallet, you can’t go wrong with the BH 905i. The sound quality is quite good. It’s not on par with a Bose headset, but it’s not priced as much, either. People will argue that the sound quality isn’t as good as a wired headset, but the Bluetooth quality is always a little less. However, unless you’re a music expert, you won’t notice the fine line between the two. You will only know that your music sounds much better than it does from an average headset. bluetooth headset review

Nokia BH 905i – Conclusion

I find it hard to go wrong with the Nokia BH 905i. It’s economical; it performs at a high level with distinctive high tones and a thumping bass sound. The noise cancellation works as promised, and you are sure to enjoy many hours of enjoyable listening.
