Upcoming Review – Sennheiser PC330 G4ME Headset

I recently got my hands(ears?) on a pair of Sennheiser’s PC330 G4ME Headsets. (Doesn’t the “G4ME” make you feel so “l33t” just by reading it?) To provide the best review possible, I felt it was my obligation to really put the PC330 through the paces: gaming, music and video, before reporting on my impression.Sennheiser PC330 G4ME Headset

Unfortunately, the graphics card in my computer, a XFX ATI Radeon HD 5850 Video Card, died shortly after Christmas, seriously hampering my ability to really enjoy the PC330(More on this experience later). Fortunately, like any good tech enthusiast, I have (more than) my fair share of backup components and will be able to continue my testing while I wait through the (hopefully not-excruciating) RMA process for my video card.

So, stay tuned… and maybe share some of your own tech hardware horror stories in the comments to pass the time.

  • (Wireless Phone Accessory) You’ve read the specs on the phone; the screen is nice, the touch works about excpeted, the OS is laid out logically, and it has a few goodies & apps tucked away so that you feel its more than a basic phone. It also works with AT&T with no problem.Physically, the phone is light, smaller than it appears, and the battery seems to be fine, although I don’t talk a lot on my phone. The Camera works well in either landscape or portrait mode, and the camera app fast and works fine.Here’s the stuff that isn’t so great:1) While the phone supports bluetooth, it only appears to support very basic profiles, so it doesn’t look like you can transfer pictures, addresses, and data with your computer which is a significant drawback2) I was very disappointed to realize it doesn’t support a normal headphone. Instead, it has a weird proprietary headphone jack, and the headphones supplied are about the lowest quality3) The FM radio is great except that it won’t play the FM radio without the headphones attached. But here’s the weird part, once the headphone is attached you can play it through the speaker. You can’t make this stuff up.4) No WiFi, which means data access will always cost you money through your carrier.I would buy it again. The screen quality and size make it worth $100. But don’t expect this to compete with a smart phone. Its more like a basic phone with a few extras.
