PewDiePie is the Swedish born gamer whose real name is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg. He has over 52 million subscribers on his YouTube Channel who log in to follow along as he plays games coupled with very sharp commentaries.
With a somewhat religious following, PewDiePie will definitely have his fans doing whatever he does and using whatever equipment he uses. And that is why I am writing this, because what better way to review something than checking out what PewDiePie uses in his videos and giving myself the pleasure of using it?
PewDiePie has changed his headphones several times. A few years back he was using the Razer Kraken PRO Headset and a Corsair Gaming headset.
But currently, he has been seen rocking the Sennheiser RS 170 Digital Wireless Headphones.
This headphone is what I call eargasm for the ears. They will give you the ultimate ear comfort and great audio. As its name suggests, the headphone is wireless giving you more leeway to move around and not be scared that the cable might get detached.
A little glitch with the wireless feature of this headphone is the fact that it is limited to one analog meaning that when you connect to one device, you will be forced to stick around the place that you have connected the headphone, you cannot move to another room, if you do you will be cut off from your device. Such a bummer!
The RS 170 is known for its dynamic bass and its surround sound which will give you the experience of a lifetime what with its boom that makes it sound real engulfing you through and through.
Apart from the above mentioned disadvantage, the RS 170 is one unique and premium headphone.
For one, it will give you a playtime period of up to 24 hours which means it has one of the best battery lives out there.
To have your audio, the Sennheiser RS 170 has the Kleer’s digital wireless audio transmission giving you a range of up to 80m. Better yet, you can connect another 4 headphones and enjoy a great time with your pals as you compare notes on whatever it is you are enjoying be it a video game, a movie or listening to music.
Seeing that the RS 170 comes in two modes, the Dynamic Sound or Surround Sound mode, it is only befitting that they give you the option to switch to whatever mode you want.
Simply press a button and voila, you skip to the mode you want.
RS 170 is designed to the circumaural design preference. This design adds comfort and blocks out extra sound. With luxurious cushions and velour cloth giving it a deluxe look and feel, there is no way you will complain of being uncomfortable or that the headphones are pressing so hard on your head.
