My Gears: Plantronics Pulsar 590A

Starting a new category, “My Gears”.  In this section, I will share with you all my experiences with the latest gears I acquired.  As a tech-freak, I’m mildly to overly obsessed with state-of-the-art telecommunications / computer / electronics / gaming gadgets and I do acquire new toys quite frequently.  I will not be delving into the details of the gears as there are ample reviews of them out there.  Rather, I will link up a review in which echoes my own experiences.  In addition, I will be sharing with you all my thoughts and insights in a consumer point of view, or should I say, a heavy-duty user’s point of view.  Feedbacks and comments are welcome.

Been using this headset for almost 6 months now for my MMORPG online games, iPod, PSP movies, Bluetooth phone and whenever I need a pair of headphones.  The cool telescoping voice tube provide clear and crisp sound for voice communication via ventrilo and Skype.  The universal adapter that comes along with the headset let me link up with my iPod and PSP via bluetooth.  Sound quality over IPOD is great, and as for movie over PSP, only noticed slight delay in terms of voice transmission.  Battery life is awesome, lasted the whole 9 hours plus (total transit time) on my last trip to Shanghai and back, without charging.  Only downside is the supporting headband, would rather if it was one of those where the supporting band is at the back of the head.
