Razer Kraken Mobile

It seems like most of the population is carrying a mobile device with them these days, whether it is a phone, a tablet or a laptop, and you can see the changes it’s made in society on a daily basis. People are walking down the streets sporting earbuds, Bluetooth headphones and earbuds, headphones and yes, even headsets. The audio quality of your particular cans is now balanced by style, and some headsets range up to $2000. At this point you are probably paying more for the name than the quality. Razer’s forte has always been gaming, and they have done that well and become a world leader in gaming devices. Their products have proven to be so deadly to your virtual foes, that the minute you get hands on one you’re a lifetime member of “The Cult Of Razer”. Now Razer is branching out into the audio field for mobile devices, and have produced the Razer Kraken Mobile. The Kraken Mobile is aimed at Apple IOS users, but has thoughtfully designed adapters for Android, and we’ll be jamming to the Android version of the Kraken Mobile in two shell shocking, almost “Nuclear Neon” colors.

Available in six eye-popping, attention grabbing colors, the Razer Kraken Mobile is designed to be lightweight, but rugged. The headset shows that, but is a bit on the heavy side of mobile headsets. Utilizing two large drivers with 40 mm neodymium magnets and frequency response in the 20 – 20,000 Hz range, people at the end of the street will turn and walk your way just to find out whose set of cans you’re jamming to.

Just a note, whether for IOS or Android, the functionality of the headset and IOS or Android wires are the same. The only difference being one wire fits Apple devices,  and one fits Android devices, but both cords provide the same functionality.

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.
