Pump Audio V2 Earphones - Looks

First of all I would like to thank Pump Audio for reaching out to send me their latest earphones, the Pump Audio V2 Earphones. They can be found for £69 on AmazonUK and at $99 on AmazonUSA, alternatively you can buy them directly from Pump Audio’s site.

When I first saw these crop up in my inbox, I was extremely sceptical about them, mainly because I hadn’t heard of the brand before and that these earphones looked like yet another earphone that put design over sound, with its bright orange colour scheme (in fairness orange is one of my favourite colours).

I was therefore interested to hear how it would compare to the FIDUE A65 which can be found for around £50, or even against other earphones like the cheaper SoundMAGIC E10s that can now be found for around £30 and even the more expensive DUNU Titan 1 that can be found for £90, all presented an interesting battleground for the Pump Audio V2 Earphones.

Here’s my video review of the earphones:

SteelSeries Siberia V2 Heat Orange Headset - Design

First of all I would like to thank SteelSeries for sending me their headset for review. I reviewed the headset when they initially got launched at their higher price tag of around £100. Since then they have dropped to around £80, making them very attractive. It can be found on AmazonUK & AmazonUSA.
More information about the headset and its specifications can be found on SteelSeries’ website.

I was a little sceptical at first with the headset, as I was concerned about the overall sound quality the headset would have produced. However, the Heat Orange Gaming Headset really did impress me. Before going into my written review, I had previously made a video review where I gave the headset a full 10/10 rating. Since, I’ve decided to drop it by a rating to 9/10 (more on this through the review).

Here’s my video review:
