Review of the Sandberg StreetBlaster Headset

With Christmas just around the corner, you might be looking for a gift for a family member, friend, or just for yourself, and you might be thinking of getting yourself a low cost headset, either for game playing, using for things like Skype or just to be polite so that you can listen to your music as loud as you want without disturbing everybody else in the house.

This is where the new StreetBlaster headset from Sandberg comes in. It is a low cost, easy to use headset that includes a microphone for gameplaying, Skype and anything else you might want a microphone for.

WHO ARE SANDBERG?

Their website describes themselves as:

Sandberg A/S is a Danish company with a clear ideology: We want to make it easier to get hold of computer accessories. Everyone should be able to find the right accessories in the shop and get them to work once they’ve got them home without the need for specialist knowledge.

The basic idea of Sandberg wanting to make things easier for both consumers and dealers has imbued the spirit of everything that Sandberg has done since 1985, when the company was founded by the two brothers Martin Hollerup and Erling Hoff Petersen.

WHATS IN THE BOX?

The box is neatly packaged and contains the headphones, a few pieces of paper and the two different cables (one cable for connecting to a computer and the other for connecting to a stereo).

USING THE STREETBLASTER

Connecting the headphones to either my computer or stereo was very simple. The headphones cable screws into the headphones themselves, which is a nice feature as it means its not very easy to just pull out by mistake. Just make sure you remember to unscrew them when you are finished rather than pulling them out or you might damage them.

Putting the Streetblaster headset on for the first time felt a little strange. It felt a little tight, not uncomfortable, but not quite right. This was soon resolved by taking them off and “stretching” them a little. This is because the headband part of the headset is stretchable rather than movable and this takes a little while to get used to.

Using the Streetblaster was easy, and the sound quality was fine and the microphone (which is part of the cable) picked up my talking at normal level without any problems at all, and the sound was very clear. There is even a mute button as well for those shouting and screaming rants if you are a gameplayer!

FINAL THOUGHTS AND CONCLUSIONS

This is a fairly short review, mainly because there really isn’t that much to the Streetblaster, you just plug it in and use it, simple as that.

If you are looking for a low cost headset this holiday season then you should consider this as it does exactly what it says on the tin.

The Streetblaster retails for £34.99 in the UK.
