A lovely headset, will look forward to the review. Off-topic-ish: On the subject of Computex, please go and spill something nasty on Gigabyte's display, it is FAR too clean.

I've had mixed experiences with wireless headsets, whilst I prefer them their battery life tends to suck. I'd be interested to know how long these would last.

Wireless.... hmm. Great, but does that mean its going to be:

A) heavy with batteries
B) running out of juice all the time

Just what I was thinking. Headset does look good though. Be interesting to see if it clamps onto your head like a vice..I kinda get that impression from the look of it.

gaming headset with active noise cancelling and wireless, looks like sound quality was the last thing they care about lol.

I like an attractive girl as much as the next, but does anyone else think that the temporary tattoo was just a little bit too much?

I'll soon be in the market for a good headset (at a good price) so maybe I might look into this when it comes. Saying that though, the general vibe I've got is that I'm better off going for a great set of headphones and a separate mic, so it'd have to really hit the spot.

@edit: Just noticed the Active Noise-Cancelling feature - my girlfriend will love these! I already get loads of stick for not hearing her when I've got headphones on

@editedit: Ooo Bluetooth too, if I the mic can be stashed away maybe it could be tolerable as a headset on the move.. Just about any Bluetooth speakers I've seen are rubbish, being designed for calls rather than sound quality. It would be good if these were the ultimate all-rounder headset, but maybe I'm just dreaming

Theak, for quality sound Bluetooth headset on the move, there's no replacement for the Plantronics 590a. I'm halfway in my second pair now

Im all for a good heaset but i can only imagine how much the price of these will be.......AND how bad the sound quality is gonna be.

I hope they prove me wrong, but i cant see it.

Also how will it work with sound cards.......( I know its bluetooth, but how may 3.5mm to Bluetooth adapters you seen??)

Looks pretty good. I have been waiting for a decent wireless gaming headset. I never liked that Logitech G930. the receiver looks... Ugly. If this uses a Bluetooth connection I would imagine I could use any dongle I wanted instead of a big unsightly one. Also the red will match my keyboard backlight and case lighting.
