While the Virtual Reality Vision world had been under development for the past couple of years in full force, audio seems to have fallen to the wayside. Until now, that is, when the Oculus team have announced "Oculus Audio." This system works with Crescent Bay, integrating a high-fidelity audio experience into the next generation of Virtual Reality.
The folks at Sennheiser make some of the finest headphones around. They have for quite a while. But some of the most visible headphones in the world today come from a brand with a big "b" on the eardrums. Do they sound better than Sennheiser’s newest slick-looking set of headphones, the Urbanite? No, they do not.
High quality headsets aren’t often cheap - the folks at Gamdias are hoping to change that. Releasing the Gamdias EROS V2 earlier this year, the team behind the gaming company made an awesome combination: a surprisingly pleasant gaming headset experience with a price that won’t eviscerate your wallet.
With the slew of PS4 goodies set to arrive in the near future will come the Silver Wired Stereo Headset for the PlayStation 4, a pair of cans retailing for $69.99 USD -- a more budget-friendly option over the Gold Wireless Stereo Headset. Says Sony, the audio offering will launch this fall.
It would appear that Sennheiser was tired of seeing their competition succeed with bass as their main (and sometimes only) aim. With the Sennheiser URBANITE and URBANITE XL, the team ignites the lower end - this line "delivers massive bass but with Sennheiser’s uncompromising audio expertise ensuring excellent clarity throughout the entire frequency range."
