Bowers & Wilkins P5 Series 2 On-Ear Headphones

For the enthusiast there is no price for quality sound, and for the discerning audiophile high quality headphones are a must. If you fit into either of these categories you know Bowers & Wilkins produces some of the best audio products on the market. Today we have the pleasure of slipping on their P5 headphones for this TechwareLabs review. Big sound doesn't have to come from big speakers, just high quality ones, and you can often find room filling sound that is loud but without quality. The P5 Series 2 headphones aims to give your ears room filling sound with excellent quality. Retail pricetag on the P5 is a bit high at $299 but they can be found ranging from $229 to $269 on store shelves.

Gamdias Hephaestus Gaming Headset (GHS2000) Review

Choosing the right headset is often a challenge, with a handful of established headsets out there it is often very difficult for a new headset to make an impact on the over-saturated market. PC and console headset makers are implementing new features to differentiate their headset from others, these new features may often end up being a game changer or are quickly buried and forgotten. Gamdias, the Greek mythology themed peripheral design company has surprised us with some of the most unique gamer gear out there. The Gamdias Hephaestus Gaming Headset (GHS2000) beings a new dimension to sound quality by adding a blast source identifier that causes the ear cups to vibrate independently. Ear cup vibration plus an interesting built in cooling system might just be the features required to bring the spotlight to the Gamdias Hephaestus but how well does it fare in terms of durability, style, and comfort?
