Gioteck proudly announced two new, British designed and engineered next-gen additions to their extensive range of feature-packed, affordable gaming accessories. Coinciding with November’s console launches, the well-loved brand brings gamers the incredible, TX-50 PS5 Headset and VP-1 Viper Premium Cable Pack.
Gioteck TX-50 PS5 Headset
The Gioteck TX-50 is engineered for epic online battles in mind. With 50mm high impact drivers enabling you to track every footstep, get ready to feel the advantage over your enemies. Over-ear soft Alacantara cushions provide precise delivery of sound with extreme comfort for long gaming sessions. The bendable metal mic guarantees that your team hear every command. A fully rubberised finish ensures the TX-50’s outside packs as much of a punch as it’s inside. Gioteck – Come Get Some.
The Gioteck TX-50 is wired and comes with a 3.5mm cable, allowing me to connect to my laptop or PS5. Compared to Bluetooth headphones, I found this kind of connection best and didn’t have any issues.
This fantastic Gioteck headset cancels out surrounding noise for the ultimate atmosphere. With a microphone allowing you to interact with fellow gamers and high-quality headphones, you can enjoy crystal clear audio. It’s compatible with PlayStation, Xbox and laptops and the headset. You can connect it to your console via the stereo jack and immerse yourself in your favourite games with this amazing headset.
The controls for the listening and mic volume are all in the right place and feels incredibly intuitive.
The sound quality was excellent, those 50mm drivers pump out the sound. The noise-blocking pads are awesome and keep all the music in and all the background sounds out. They feel comfortable on the head and I have worn them for 7 hours or so in one sitting.
Voices are incredibly crisp and action sequences explode inside my head. The omnidirectional microphone is easy to use, and when doing Skype calls with France, people had no problem hearing me at all.
VP-1 Viper PS5 Premium Cable Pack
The Gioteck Premium Cable Pack is an all in one solution for the next generation of consoles including a Viper premium USB C cable and a premium 2.1 8K HDMI Cable. The Viper premium USB C cable has 24K gold plated Viper connector heads and 3m nylon braided cable for superior durability and protection while you never need to drop out of the game with 3A fast charging support. The premium 2.1 HDMI cable provides 8K at 60Hz and 4K at 120Hz with 48Gbps bandwidth for the ultimate viewing experience.
The pack includes an 8K HDMI cable and a USB-A to USB-C cable. These are both braided and follow the black and white colour scheme of the PS5. The braided cable was a great choice, as it protects the cables for any damage.
The USB cable supports fast charging. Which means I can plug in my PS5 controller and it will charge it a lot faster than with a standard cable. Also, the HDMI cable provides 8K at 60Hz and 4K at 120Hz with 48Gbps bandwidth. Also, this is the ultimate entertainment cable, everything is supported and you are future-proofed too.
I couldn’t see any issues when using this cable, compared to the one that is supplied with the PS5. Finally, as I said the braided protection means it can be stuffed away and won’t be damanged.
