There is a new audio product for sale, one that Taiwanese company Genius created and named PC Headset HS-400A.
Unlike some other headphones that we have covered recently, this isn't one of those large and overpowered items that only gamers will buy.
Genius didn't really have gaming as a primary concern when it built them it fact.
Instead, it decided to make a headset that, while not costing too much, can satisfy people who chat over the web.
Indeed, the PC Headset HS-400A is aimed at VOIP chatting.
Genius still did its best to appeal to as many people as possible though.
What that means is that the company also managed to make the HS-400A reasonably good-looking.
It is also adjustable, so no one will be able to complain that something doesn't fit.
Of course, that needs some elaboration: three parts of the headset are adjustable, the headband, the microphone and the ear cups.
Speaking of which, the ear cups have a Graffiti Style design and house 40mm drivers. This brings us to the specifications at last, and they are, all things considered, quite decent.
The frequency response is of 20Hz to 20KHz, while the sensitivity is 113 dB and the impedance is of 32 Ohms. The omni-directional microphone is not half bad either. It can't afford to be if chats are truly the main purpose of the headset. That said, the sensitivity is -54±3 dB and the frequency response is 100Hz to 10KHz.
Other features include a “vivid” preen, a 3.5mm plug, a cable with a length of 1.8 meters and in-line volume control (complete with mute).
Genius requires around $14.4 / 11 Euro in exchange for the Headset HS-400A. In other words, people who like to listen to their MP3 Player/CD/Radio or communicate over MSN/Net phone or Skype won't have to kill their finances. The warranty is of one year and the product page can be found here
