Mionix NASH 20 hands-on: premium gaming headset in all black

The team at Mionix can never be called out for not taking their time with a product - certainly not in the case of the Mionix NASH 20 headset. Here we’re seeing a pair of headphones with a mic that were originally scheduled to be released last year - here at CES 2014, we’re seeing them in their final form for the first time. For an idea of how high-end these cans sound right this minute, Mionix points toward the meaning of NASH: “according to Arabic mythology, NASH is an Arrowhead, which is a suitable name for a top class gaming headset with superior precision and sharp sound.”

Sennheiser G4ME ONE gaming headset Review

With the release of the G4ME ONE gaming headphones alongside the slightly higher-end G4ME ZERO, Sennheiser reminds the public that they're not just satisfied with bringing music to the aviator-inspired ear-blaster market. Here we're concentrating on the G4ME ONE - with extra noise-blocking and memory-foam in the ZERO, you can just assume that the more expensive set is just that much better. Here in the G4ME ONE we've got an exceedingly comfortable experience with just as fine a quality in sound delivery as we heard in the Sennheiser Momentum (in black).

Now we've just got to see how this device actually works.

This week the FAQ for the program has been updated to reflect a slight change in rules.
