Headsets and Wireless Technology

 

Wireless technology, while certainly not being a new technology on its own, this year has managed to find some fresh legs in the audio realm.

Early in the year I took a look at a product from ASUS that takes the wireless premise to new heights.

 

What I found was very interesting indeed. While initially I felt the potential for top notch audio to be received 'wirelessly' to be quite limited due to the inherent nature of the technology, I was later surprised when I found that the signal being sent out of my system's USB port to the wireless headphones was indeed a quality one which had managed to capture quite a lot of the original signal and broadcast it out around my home.

 

For me personally this came as a surprise as I was not expecting wireless to carry over to the audio realm with much efficiency at all. But instead we now have a product that can accomplish this feat and quite well, too.

 

In a world that has become 'wirelessly de-sensitized', meaning we almost expect to see it nowadays, I think there will be a steady demand for more wireless gaming solutions and more wireless headsets to accommodate them.

 

So where does this latest development leave wireless technology? Well, in the audio sector at least I feel it has a place and even a future. While it will never be called 'audiophile', that doesn't mean it cannot continue to be useful as a technology for the masses.
