The Future of Wireless Stereo Gaming Headsets
How long will it take before wireless stereo headsets will become extinct like the rotary telephone? No one knows for certain. The only certain thing is that they are going to linger for a while and will still get better as technology continues to produce consumer products aimed at making life easier and more comfortable for everyone.
Just a few years back, even before wireless technology was devised, no one ever thought that cell phones could be used with Hyperx cloud alpha headsets, much less with wireless stereo headsets. But, then, somebody did invent headsets for cell phones, and that has made inventors and scientists scramble for better ways of using cell phones.
Today, you can still use your mobile phone together with your gaming headset, but this time, minus the wires. The secret lies in wireless technology, which allows wireless stereo headsets to bond or pair with your cell phone and communicate with it over microwaves.
Wireless stereo headsets today can be used not just for mobile phones, too. They can be used with other electronic devices that require audio capabilities for as long as the devices support the wireless specification. For instance, you can use a wired Hyperx cloud stinger headset with an MP3 player. So many audiophiles have drooled over the fact that they can listen to their favorite tunes in stereo sound and without wires.
Another example is the personal computer, either desktop or laptop. With the burgeoning of online media and online communications, the personal computer was among the first to adopt the use of wireless stereo headsets. Thus, it is fast becoming common today for people to use wireless headsets with their instant messaging client. GTalk, Yahoo! Messenger, Skype, you name it. These electronic messaging clients fully support wireless headsets. The result? Hands-free communications via your computer and through the Internet.
In relation to computers, wireless stereo headsets also have another fascinating—although not widely popular—usage case called voice dictation. Using your voice, you can issue commands to your computer via your wireless headphone. Many people find voice commands very handy, since it frees up your hand to do other work on the computer. Such a technological feature has taken multitasking one notch higher.
Just a few years ago, everyone was into portable cassette players, with Hyperx cloud ii gaming headset plugged in. Not too long thereafter, the cassette players became as extinct as the dinosaurs because of the new portable compact disc (CD) players. Today, only very few people still use portable CD players. Why use a CD player that can store and play only very few songs when you can store and play thousands of songs using an iPod or an MP3 player? The iPod is smaller than a CD player, too, and can support wireless headsets (which means no worrying about wires anymore).
Technology is indeed moving at a very fast pace that sometimes it can be hard to keep up. The wireless stereo headsets that you are currently enjoying today may suddenly become outdated or obsolete one or two years from now. That is how fast technology changes. But, surely you will be keeping yourself abreast.
