Armaggeddon Molotov-5 mobile gaming headset reviewed

Singapore based gaming gadget brand Armaggeddon recently launched the Molotov-5 headset. I have been trying it out for a couple of days now and I have I have to say, I am quite impressed.


This headset is compatible with both Android and iPhones and has been clearly designed with the mobile gamer in mind - with strong durable braided nylon cables (1.5m long) protecting the inner wires. The cables are among the most vulnerable parts of a headsets/ earphones and it feels like they have done a great job with the Molotov-5. The headphones can be folded up as well making it easy to carry in your jacket pocket when not in use.

Regarding the audio quality, the Molotov-5 delivers great audio performance with rich bass, surprisingly generated by only 2 40mm audio drivers (Frequency response: 20Hz to 20KHz, Impedence: 320, Sensitivity: 103+- 3Db). It was a bit worried that they would project sound outwards (a problem with the Logitech headphones I normally use) but according to my wife, they were OK.

As for comfort, the headphones are not that chunky and quite light. They don’t clamp down too hard on my ears unlike a few other affordable headsets I have tried so far. The earpads are comfortable and provides good sound proofing. I was surprised that the headphones did a better job of keeping out external noise as compared to my old Sennheiser HD 558 headphones which covers my ears completely.

I love the fact that it comes with an in-line microphone (Frequency response-75Hz-20KHz, Sensitivity:-42+-4dB) with push-to-talk button and not sticking out in front of your face.

The headsets also comes included with an audio splitter so that I could use them with my PC and laptop. It is perfect for my Smule and Skype video conferencing sessions - not necessarily what the guys at Armaggeddon had in mind when they designed the headset. I did not have to raise my voice and could talk normally and according to people I talked to, my voice was clear with no distortions.



The Molotov-5 comes in three different striking colour variations with exciting names - Scarlet Soviets (Red, Alpine Allies (Blue) and Armaggeddon (Yellow). I got the yellow one which is not necessarily my favourite colour and does attract a bit of attention because it stands out from far.

What would I have liked different - not much actually apart from maybe a volume knob, removable cables and maybe bluetooth. Yeah! maybe I am bit too much demanding

I have to admit, I have come to really like the Molotov-5 headset and would recommend it for all audiophiles on the go (not just gamers).It retails for only RM99.90, which is amazing value for the price. One of the best-sounding headphones in it's price range.

The Most Unusual Watches Designs in the World 2

We continue with some more Unusual Watches Designs in the World.

Guest post by Brian Jens.

Time Machine Design by Jones Watches
This is a watch that shows the time worldwide. Minimalist watch with digital dial by Mr. Jones will help you not to get lost in time, remind you of holidays, and prompt the time wherever you are.


Vibrating Watches by Skrekkogle Company
There are no arrows or numbers indicating the hours and minutes on the flat round dial, fixed on a thin leather strap. This model of watches just vibrates every five minutes, thereby giving its owner a sense of time. An original way, nothing to say…

Watches with a Wooden Clock Face by Grovemade
There are no numbers or arrows on a wooden dial – only the two labels and twelve holes. The red mark indicates the hour while black or white plays a role of a minute hand. The novelty is made of maple and eastern black walnut. Each dial is handmade.


Watches by a Projects Watches Company
The American company is famous for the fact that the design of each model of watches is made by creative persons – architects, artists, designers, the pioneers of computer graphics, etc.


Roger Dubuis Easy Diver SED Tourbillon Waterproof Wrist Watch
Manual winding, power reserve of 50 hours, and alligator leather strap with a gold insert – this water resistant (300m) watch will not leave you indifferent.


Moto 360 by Motorola
A stunning and stylish watch that will not appear on the wrist of human as an alien element that has come into our reality from fantasy films of the seventies. Moto 360 is a classical watch, generally indistinguishable from the mechanical ones.


Smart Moto 360 watch can work in phone and navigator mode. It allows you to read and send e-mails, as well as manage music, chat with friends, check the weather forecast, etc. It also has several sensors for monitoring the health condition of the person on whom they put on.

Pebble
The touch screens of today's smart watches consume a lot of energy, that is, they must be charged almost every day. But this disadvantage is eliminated in Pebble watches.
Pebble is one of many cases when a good idea has collected enough money on Kickstarter. The watch is based on the e-paper technology.


The use of e-paper allows intelligent Pebble to work for a long time – from 5 to 7 days. The watch can manage calls, and the wireless network connects some other functions of the phone. The absence of expensive components makes Pebble the cheapest smart watches in the market.

A Fatalist Watches
No comments.

The Blind Watch Design by Hyunsoo Kim
These watches use magnetic beads attached to a spring. The ball in the facial circle shows minutes; the one on the lateral shows hours.

Well, what time it is?
