Ozone Blast Ocelote World 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound Gaming Headset Review

Introduction


Ozone is one of the most popular gaming brands on the market, having a great product range that has proven successful with both gamers at home and the eSports community. From high-end mechanical gaming keyboards, to pro gaming mice, they’ve got something for every gamer. Now we have their brand new Blast Ocelot gaming headset, which was designed with the help of eSports legend Carlos “ocelote” Rodriguez!

“When you can close your eyes in an fps shooter, and know exactly where every opponent is, then you know something is finally well done. Needless to say about listening to music or watching a film with them, mind-blowing. Blast Oceloteworld is one of the products I’m most excited about. Because I know everybody will love them.“ – Carlos “ocelote” Rodríguez.

As you can see from the spec list, the headset comes equipped with 7.1 Virtual Surround, which is provided via the built-in USB soundcard and desktop software. There’s a pair of powerful stereo drivers, a good quality microphone, a 3m long cable and built-in LED lighting effect.

In the box you’ll find everything you need to get you started, in fact, you’ll really only find one thing, as all major components are hard-wired to the headset.

The headset is USB powered, so no mobile support unfortunately. It comes with a hard-wired in-line controller which gives you command over the volume controls and the master audio mute.

The headset is really nicely designed, with a mixture of soft matte finish blacks, chrome highlights and a few hints of orange; it manages to look cool, without being too over the top.

Each ear cup is mounted on a small pivot, which allows a few degrees of adjustment in each direction. This will provide you with a snug fit over your ears, although it does mean the ear cups are quite thick and will look bulky on your head.

The ear cups have been treated to a comfortable leather coated padding, although the interior is a little smaller than most headsets, those with ears like Martin Clunes may want to look elsewhere.

The microphone is fitted to the headset, but does come with a nice fold-to-mute function; just push it up and it’ll be muted, bring it down and it’ll be live again. There’s a small LED strip at the front that changes from white to red when the microphone is muted.

The headset has a flexible midsection, which should help prevent it from snapping if you snag it on something.

The top of the headset has an OZONE logo, which looks pretty nice I guess, but I think the headset would look smarter without it.

The headband is well padded and should provide a comfortable fit, even after a long gaming session.

The headset feels soft thanks to the padding, but it’s also very robust thanks to a metal strip that runs through it. The sides of the headset, as with virtually any headset on the market, can be adjusted to provide a better fit.

Overall a very nice looking headset, with durable construction and comfortable padding.

Take A Blast Back To The Past With Google BBS

For a number of us tech heads, we all like to take a trip back to the good ol’ days of dial up internet and reminisce on how things used to be. Whilst many sites – such as Google – can into the world much later than the 80’s some people wonder what things would have been like back then. Well fear not as Google has been ported to the old BBS style courtesy of the guys over at masswerk.at.

It is worth noting that this is not an official page from Google themselves, but instead a third-party creation that ports Google into the style of the 80’s desktop. Whilst there is no real function of this page and when compared to today’s standards is a millions miles away from the layout, it is a great tool in some respects for teaching the children of today what computing in the past was like.

It’s simple & fun and I’m sure there is a likely hood you’ll spend a good amount of time having fun with the image search. Do you remember what things were like back then? Can you think of any other sites that would be interesting to see in an 80’s format? Let us know below.
