Sound Blaster Jam

 

The names Creative and Sound Blaster have become synonymous over the years for their audio products and just hearing the name Sound Blaster garners about the same respect as the name Porsche! Which is where we get to the Sound Blaster Jam Bluetooth Headphones that will be featured in this review.

Creative has a rich history dating back to 1981 with the vision and inspiration to revolutionize the role multimedia interfaces with our PC’s and devices to enrich the users everyday lives. They originally took the industry by storm with their line of innovative sound cards and over the years it has continued to do so with its innovative line of products. In this review we will examine and evaluate the Sound Blaster Jam Bluetooth headset.

Packaging and Specifications

The packaging for the Sound Blaster Jam Bluetooth headset is Sound Blasters signature black and red packaging with plastic bubble that allows the user to view the headset through the packaging on the shelf or peg at their local store.  As with the last Sound Blaster product I reviewed it shares the same proud statement about how over 400 million Blaster Products have been sold and this figure does not count the motherboards with SB audio built in!

On the rear of the packaging you find the same signature black and red back ground with white text describing the many features that the Jam has. Some of these features are the long battery life of 12 hours, built in controls, bass enhancement and the ability to use it wired in addition to the Bluetooth mode.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
