▪ REVIEWS . . . SEE WHAT YOUR FELLOW GAMERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE YAPSTER BLASTER
"While the Xjacker tech is aimed at pulling out the mid range so you hear the crunch of foot steps, the majority of gunfire and the wide range of other video games sounds that fall into that range more clearly, it does not sacrifice the highs and lows to do so. The bass still kicks your eardrums and the highs still tweet with clarity."
"With the Soniq Rush power unit attached, the sound is rich, full-bodied and in a word...superb."
"I don't think my Xbox games have sounded this good."
"It's a perfect match of headset and power."
"Really, $29.99 for this rig is ridiculously low and beats the pants off some headsets with double the price tag. It seems to me there needs to be a price adjustment...on THOSE OTHER headsets"
"I did mention the unit is $29.99 right? For a pretty much universal set of headphones that also offer full chat on the Xbox 360 and PC, it's a downright steal."
"I was pleasantly suprised. The rich sound emanating from the speakers let me hear every bass thump, every high tweet, and everything in between."
"They are comfortable, too. Well padded on the ear cups and the headband itself."
"I can't imagine anything sounding better enough or having enough extra bells and whistles to warrant spending three to six times as much money on."
"I now absolutely love these headphones."
"The Yapster Blaster is a fantastic, affordable alternative to any of the more expensive headsets on the market today."
"...it far excels anything else in its price category, and would be an ideal purchase for casual gamers."
"The Yapster Blaster provides high in-game sound quality, and excellent base response thanks to the built-in amp"
"...the overall quality of effects and music can't be faulted."
"Sound testing on this device rendered great results. On the 360, we tested Assassin's Creed II, as well as Halo Reach –and was more than impressed. Basses were deep and highs were clear."
"Highs, mids, and lows were all distinct, and even the most nuanced of sounds came to life. This in part due to the XJacker technology that is used to amplify sound coming into the headset. The USB powered XJacker amplifier boasts a frequency response of 20 Hz to 50,000 Hz, and a total harmonic distortion of 0.2%, and while these numbers won't mean much to the laymen, the end result is a very rich sound."
"If you don't have the means for a surround sound setup, this is the next best thing."
"TekNmotion has given gamers a slice of the luxurious life (at a budget price!) with the [Yapster] Blaster Amplified Universal Headset"
"The sound quality is top-notch. While gaming, the headset hit all the mids, highs, and lows. Hearing footsteps while playing Call of Duty gave me a leg up on who was lurking around the corner, and the sounds of weapons firing from every direction threw me into the warzone."
"As a self-proclaimed audiophile, I was amazed and surprised that the $30 [Yapster] Blaster sounded so crisp and clear, thanks to the 40mm Neodymium bass drivers, and patented XJacKer Soniq Rush amplification technology."
"I kept forgetting that I was wearing a $30 headset and that is extraordinary on its own."
"If you're a budget gamer, the TekNmotion Yapster Blaster Amplified Universal Headset is for you. It's in the same league as the Turtle Beach EarForce X12 headset, which starts at $60."
"The headset is comfortably worn, even after lengthy gameplay sessions."
"The sound in the Yapster is nice and full and should prove to be sufficient for budget-conscious gamers. The gunshots were clear and sharp, and the explosion had a deep enough boom."
"This headset is powered by XJacKer Soniq Rush amplification technology and can hold top performance against any top amplified universal headset. The sound quality is amazing. Very clear."
"You will find that the TekNmotion Yapster Blaster amplified universal headset delivers everything you need when purchasing a gaming headset."
"If you are looking for an affordable headset that is comfortable, amplified, and universal try out the TekNmotion Yapster Blaster. It has proved itself to be a great gaming headset."
"I enjoyed how well the headphones wrapped about my much smaller ears and remained comfortable for extended periods of listening."
"The headphones provide a great bass which is their strongest feature, as well as being great for general noise suppression."
"...with a price tag of $29.99, you aren't going to find a better set of headphones, especially one specifically targeted for the Xbox 360."
"In-game, I noticed very nice audio."
"Footsteps were clear, even when there were other sounds being echoed, and the bass response was low enough to keep the vibrations out of my head when getting pelted by grenades. I received clear directional audio from the Yapster Blaster, which is comparable to some of the higher end headsets on the market."
"For a headset this size, and for this price, the bass response is actually incredible."
"The sound quality of the headphones was surprisingly good. I didn't push the volume to the max (I do want my hearing to last), but the volumes I was playing at for games like Black Ops and Red Faction Armageddon were crisp, clear, and booming when it needed to be."
"The folks at TekNmotion packed an amazing amount of quality into an unassuming package, and priced it for the masses. Do not pass these up."
