  • Samsung’s Gear VR review: Gift of virtual reality for a low-price

    Samsung makes history by launching the first major consumer-oriented virtual-reality headset: Gear VR (Source: Samsung Press)
    By Anick Jedanun/Associated Press
    Samsung makes history by launching the first major consumer-oriented virtual-reality headset. (It comes with an asterisk; prototypes and other not-quite-mass-market versions have been available for a while.) And its Gear VR headset is pretty impressive as first-generation devices go.
    The biggest surprise after using the new Gear VR for a few days: There’s a lot of stuff to watch and play in the virtual worlds the headset opens up. Granted, some of that material is gimmicky or amateurish. But the best of it hints at some of the mind-expanding experiences VR can make possible.
    The Gear VR is relatively cheap, too, at just $100. You do need your own headphones, pre…

  • Sony MDR-XB650BT review: At Rs 7,990, one of the best headphones right now

    Sony MDR-XB650BT headphones have been launched at Rs 7,990. The high bass headphone is definitely one of the best in the market right now.
    Since my childhood when I used to play with equaliser on my aunt’s Technics hi-fi music system, I have preferred to keep the bass low and push the treble up as much as possible. But I am in a minority, especially in India. Here we love our music in our cars, in our homes and even on our phones. A lot of our music also lends itself to be the lower frequencies, especially the numbers youth today love to play all the time. This is where Sony wants to cash in with the MDR-XB650BT, a headphone that is more than partial to bass.
    Sony MDR-XB650BT
    Rs 7,990
    The Sony MDR-XB650BT is loud, and I have not even started talking about the audio quality. The review unit we got was a metallic blue that will more than make your musi…
