Product: Hyper X Cloud II Headset Reviewed on: PC
This device was supplied by the manufacturer for the purpose of review.
The first thing you’ll notice about the HyperX Cloud II is not the headphones themselves, but rather just how enormous its packaging is. As if to convey a message of “the thing inside this box will be awesome”, the whole deal comes in a bright orange box. It resembles something a pair of shoes might come in, with the HyperX logo emblazoned on it. The innermost part of its lid has a somewhat long-winded message from HyperX founder Anders Willumson thanking the buyer for their support and singing the praises of the Cloud headset and [...]
Product: “Gemini” / “Golem” gaming glasses Manufacturer: NoScope Price: $29.99 for Gemini / $24.99 for Golem
Two pairs of glasses were provided by NoScope for this review
As the technology age has progressed and most people have found themselves staring at screens for most – or all – of their waking hours, consumers have wrestled with the problems of clarity, glare, eye strain, and fatigue. This, in particular, has been a problem for gamers, who tend to need a clear vision and pain-free eyes to play at their best. Thus the invention of “gaming glasses” began, and many different companies have thrown their hat into the ring. I received two pairs [...]

Kingston provided a @HyperX FURY 3.0 32 GB USB Flash Drive
Nowadays I think USB flash drives are like modern day pens. Everyone has one; often you’re not quite sure where you got it from. Like pens you get as swag at the bank or off tables at conventions, USB drives suddenly appear and disappear seemingly at will from your backpack, couch cushions and drawers of your desk. Rather than be some prized possession to be guarded like a wallet or a [...]
Company: Oregon Aero Product: Headset Ear-Cushion Upgrade Headset: Logitech G35 Paid or Review Unit: Review Unit given by the company.
UPDATE: The Oregon Aero company have since emailed me and said that the crescent stickers were never meant to be included in the pack, and that is why there was no documentation for how to apply them properly.
The Oregon Aero Gaming Headset Kit is an exciting piece of tech. It’s designed to be installed on most Gaming headsets without the need for special tools or wiring. It has a few pros and cons, and it is worth discussing for you readers, here and now.

Kingston was kind enough to send us here at APGNation a neat little goodie bag of a few of their gaming peripherals, including a small HyperX FURY Pro Gaming Mouse Pad for us to play around with. I personally have been kicking around the same mouse pad I got off Artscow.com, when they did the free custom giveaway years ago, so I jumped at the [...]
Product: SteelSeries Siberia v3 Headset Manufacturer: SteelSeries Price: $99.99 Compatibility: PC, Mac, Android, iOS, Playstation 4
A review unit was provided for the purposes of this article
The Siberia line of headsets from venerable peripheral maker, SteelSeries, has always been a reliable mainstay in the headset market for years now. The price-point has always been good, the audio quality far better than usual for gaming headsets and design sensibility that is rarely matched in the peripheral landscape. The latest revision of the Siberia line, known as the v3, seeks to improve upon a formula that is already quite good. There saying, “If it ain’t broke [...]
A White Urban Custom Xbox One Controller was provided by Evil Controllers for the sake of testing for this review.
Growing up in the 90’s as a gamer, there was always a sure-fire way to see where on the friend food-chain you stood. All you had to do was attend a sleepover or a birthday party and if you ended up with the off-brand controller then you’re the black sheep of the fold and it’s probably time to start looking for new friends. However, in this modern era we find ourselves in — third party controllers with fragile joysticks and sticky buttons are a thing of the past. Parents shall no longer fall prey to the fake smiles from their children who receive [...]
