Normally when we are talking about a new set of headphones aimed at the DJ crowd, we are looking at headphones that have big over the ear cups. Pioneer has announced two sets of new headphones that are aimed at DJs that use an in-ear design for those that prefer something less bulky. The new headphones include the DJE-2000 and the DJE-1500.
There are a lot of gamers out there that only play games wearing headphones. Headphones often let you hear more nuances of the sound in your favorite games than TV speakers or home theater systems allow. Some FPS gamers swear you can hear enemies behind you with the right headset. My ears have never been that good.
BlueAnt has introduced its latest audio offering, the Pump HD Sportsbuds aimed at athletes and fitness enthusiasts.

Plantronics' latest Bluetooth headset, the Voyager Edge, wants to be all things to all people. Slotting into the company's Voyager range - known for their excellent performance but, even Plantronics admits, somewhat "call center" appearance - but with the style of the more consumer-centric Discovery range, the Voyager Edge is also Plantronics' first real attempt to reposition Bluetooth headsets as smart wearables, not just accessories.

Plantronics has brought its latest sports stereo Bluetooth headset to MWC 2014, promising no tangled cords and up to eight hours of music playback. Following on from the well-esteemed BackBeat GO 2 earbuds of last year, the new BackBeat FIT uses a flexible rubber headband that can be twisted and scrunched up in a rucksack or pocket without tangling, while a reflective strip around it helps with visibility on nighttime runs.

It's time for the bring-your-own-headset change-over in the Xbox One Wireless Controller environment. Xbox Live's Major Nelson let it be known this week that they'd be bringing this simple adapter device to the market for all users wishing to click-in their own headsets rather than buying Xbox One-specific audio devices only. This was one of our only complaints about the Xbox One Wireless Controller in our original Xbox One Review - looks like it's almost time to made an addendum!
Tonight Sony is issuing PlayStation 4 software update tonight which will bring the operating system up to version 1.60 automatically.

The software update will be required for all future PlayStation 4 action and, as per usual, will be able to be side-loaded using a USB stick if you do so desire.
