Why You Need Gaming Headsets

What will you do if i said I had found a radio accessory article that isn’t only fascinating but educational also? I knew you wouldn’t believe me, so here it is the informative, excellent and interesting piece

Gaming is generally viewed as one of the better ways for a person to enjoy themselves, and while not everyone is an avid gamer, just about everyone plays games at some capacity.
There are multitudes of accessories that are destined to make our experience a lot better than it already is. Some games almost require a person to buy something additional, because without it, they’re facing a sure disadvantage. Such is the case with headphones for arguably the world’s most popular game, World of Warcraft.

Although WoW or Blizzard doesn’t require the use of headphones, just about everyone who has played the game understands how easy it is to immerse yourself in it.

The Importance of Gaming Headsets for MMOs
What sets massively multiplayer games apart from their more traditional counterparts is the fact that they’re large universes that are intended to be explored and circumvented multiple times, taking in the scenery and sound. The sound is vital to anyone enjoying the game to its fullest extent, as developers spend an exorbitant amount of time on getting every pitch and sound effect into the game, further enveloping the player into the experience. Without adequate sound, people will simply be turned off of the game – especially in the case of a MMO. Being able to hear waterfalls, enemies or the clatter of a new town is crucial to the player enjoying the game, and with a proficient gaming headset, this is possible.

Guilds keep the game going, and with this being such a large part of the game, there’s a pretty substantial need for a gaming headset, particularly one that’s both reliable and customizable for your unique requests. Guilds have to effectively communicate with each other for strategic purposes and even after hours of planning a particular raid – there’s always the chance for variables. In the event that there is one – you’ll want a reliable headset, or it could all be for naught.

Selecting A Gaming headset
We’ll all pretty aware of all of the options we have in gaming headsets, all with varying degrees of effectiveness. Fortunately enough, depending on the game that you’re playing, you may even find that the company that makes the game has a licensed headset for purchase. As one would expect, this particular headset will work the best for the particular game. In using WoW as an example, Blizzard has licensed the Creative Labs 70H011000000 Sound Blaster World of Warcraft Gaming Headset, meaning that it’ll probably be the best bet for playing WoW.

A headset for just about any game will improve the amount of enjoyment that you get out of it. Sometimes, it may even provide an edge that could turn out to be the difference maker in success and failure. While some out there may be expensive, there’s also the opportunity to receive them at a substantially cheaper rate – if you’re especially thorough in your efforts.

Law Enforcement Equipment

Whilst many of my visitors might be excited about some of our own content pieces, here is one i discovered while rummaging around stumbleupon it’s far better written than I could ever expect to reach. Maybe at some point I will get to their level, you never know.

There are many important factors that people in law enforcement need to consider when joining, one of the most important factors is what equipment you need and how much you want to spend on the products that could make a big difference to your performance. The most important aspect when purchasing law enforcement equipment is the quality of the product, realistically the amount you spend reflects on the specifications of the law enforcement equipment you buy.

One very important piece of gear is the footwear; boots are an incredibly vital element to working in Law enforcement as they are worn every hour of every shift. Footwear needs to be comfortable, sturdy and very light for law enforcement personnel as they need to be easy to run in and last under pressure and for long periods of time. Boots such as the YDS goliath are a great example for a hard wearing, waterproof, lightweight boot that will last for years even after everyday usage. Other good boots for law enforcement are lowa recon paras, magnum cobras, bates gx-8 and op systems climate 6.

Kit bags are also very important to carry around all your other law enforcement equipment and tactical clothes. Bags such as the 5.11 Police Bag or the op zulu duty kit police bag are perfect for carrying large amounts and keeping different items in. There are also brands that design backpacks with water hydration packs included; this is very useful for soldiers who have been stationed in a tough, hot and unforgiving environment.

Clothing such as trousers and shirts are priority equipment for law enforcement groups. Most will want you to wear smart clothing such as navy, black or white shirts with black smart but tactical and long lasting trousers. A top brand for this is 5.11 as they fit nicely to suit a professional look and they are durable as well as breathable.

Torches are an important bit of law enforcement kit for any officer, they are used for much different reasons and an officer should have one or two with him at all times. The uses of torches vary, you can use them for signalling, seeing in dark areas and at night. Special light torches can also discover evidence not seen by just the human eye. If you are an officer of the law and you do not have a torch you might want to get on as soon as possible.

Police hearing loss: £135m paid in compensation

So i discovered this article on the internet and i was told that just posting it as the whole piece isn’t the best thing, I got permission from the original author and read up how to curate articles, so that is it…….i thought this was interesting as it highlights some of the highs and lows that I encountered when i was working inside the industry.

Police have paid out more than £135m to settle claims by former officers who said their hearing was damaged during the course of their duties.

Almost half that bill, more than £65m, was for legal fees.
Details of payments have been revealed by the PSNI in response to a Freedom of Information request by Belfast-based victims group Relatives for Justice.
Up to the end of November, compensation was paid to 8,641 former officers, with hundreds of other claims pending.

As the only routinely armed police force in the UK, the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) officers had to undergo regular firearms training.
It has been established that since the late 1960s, police sources were aware of medical evidence that they had to provide sufficient ear protection for anyone involved in this kind of activity.
Firing ranges This is a legal principle referred to as the “date of knowledge”.
But the RUC did not provide “industry standard” ear protection for another three decades.

One former officer who received compensation spoke of his experience on firing ranges.
“Even when ear protection was introduced, it was sometimes of a very poor standard and there weren’t always enough sets of headphones to go around,” he said.
“If you were waiting for your turn on the range, it wasn’t uncommon to have to simply put your fingers in your ears when standing close to someone firing a gun.
“When we trained with the army, soldiers would shake their heads in amazement at our lack of proper equipment.”

More than 10,000 former RUC officers have lodged claims for damages, saying their hearing was damaged.
Enormous compensation The claims include officers who claim to have suffered hearing loss as a result of frequent radio use, while being transported in helicopters and while driving motorcycles.
However, the vast majority of claims are for damage caused during firearms training.
The figures involved in compensation are enormous.

In response to the Freedom of Information request from Relatives for Justice, the PSNI revealed that, up the end of November, the total amount paid out to settle cases was £135,357,689.
Of that total, £70,161,788 was damages paid to former officers, while £65,195,901 was for legal and court costs.
SDLP MLA Alban Maginness, a barrister and member of Stormont’s justice committee, said the legal costs were unacceptable and could have been greatly reduced.

SDLP MLA Alban Maginness described the compensation figures as shocking
“I have raised this issue on a number of occasions,” he said.
“It is a shocking figure and the Policing Board and the Department of Justice have questions to answer about how this was allowed to happen.
‘Devastating’ “The police could have taken a much broader approach instead of contesting every case, when medical evidence had been provided stating that there had been hearing loss.

“That would have saved a substantial sum of money.”
Sinn F訮 MLA Pat Sheehan said the amount of money paid out to the former officers was unjustifiable.
“The amount of money, £135m, involved is extortionate. This is clearly unjustifiable and can not be stood over,” he said.
“These officers were well paid and this public money could have been used elsewhere.”
However, former detective superintendent Alan Mains, who received compensation for hearing loss while on duty, defended the pay-outs.

“Collectively speaking, it looks like a phenomenal sum. But it could have been dealt with a lot differently… if they had taken a broad common sense approach, instead of challenging medical evidence,” he said.
“The reason why we had to carry guns in the first place is pretty obvious – we were the only police service in all of the UK (to have to do so).”
Edwards and Company solicitors have settled claims for more than 3,000 officers, and another 500 are in the pipeline.

One of its senior partners said the affects of hearing loss could be devastating.
Dorcas Crawford cited the example of one client who suffered from a constant ringing sound in his ears, a condition known as tinnitus.
“His case was terribly severe, the worst I have heard of, so much so that when he went to see the hearing consultant, he asked him if he could possibly make him deaf because he would prefer to be deaf than to have to cope with the tinnitus,” she said.

“The sad fact, of course, is that the consultant couldn’t do that, and even if he was completely deaf he would still have the tinnitus, but it simply drove him insane.”
She also rejected any suggestion that former officers could make false claims.
“Hearing loss can be objectively measured,” she said.
Medical evidence “In every case settled by the Crown Solicitors Office, clients are tested and examined by two doctors, one acting for their solicitor and the other acting for the police, and medical reports are produced.

“Those medical reports then determine the extent of the compensation claim.”
While her company has benefited financially by representing officers with hearing loss claims, she agrees with Mr Maginness that the police could have significantly reduced the legal bill by accepting medical evidence instead of contesting every case.
“Virtually every single case, except for a tiny, tiny minority, are settled at door of court, so generally I really don’t see any reason why those could not have been settled once the medical evidence was on for both sides,” she said.

Mark Thompson’s organisation, Relatives for Justice, made the Freedom of Information request “I don’t for one minute suggest that the Crown simply pay out money where the case hasn’t been proven, but the case is proven at the earliest stage when they’ve got both medical reports.
“My estimate would be that they could have saved around half of that sum for legal costs by settling cases at an early stage.”
‘Unfair’ The group that sent the Freedom of Information request to the police described the sums of money involved as “appalling”.

Mark Thompson, director of Relatives for Justice, said it was unfair that so much has been spent paying the legal costs for former officers, at the same time as those taking action against the police and State were having their legal aid cut.
“We represent people who have been victims of the conflict and are trying to take action against the police and they are having their legal aid cut, and the lawyers that represent them have been condemned by some unionist politicians,” he said.

“But here we have the police spending tens of millions of pounds in damages to former police officers, and paying out tens of millions in legal costs and we don’t hear those politicians asking questions about it. That is simply unacceptable.”
In a statement, the PSNI said: “All hearing loss claims have to be thoroughly investigated.
“The chief constable is fully aware of his responsibility to the public purse and the strategy for handling hearing loss litigation has been kept under review by the Chief Constable’s lawyers and the Crown Solicitor’s Office with the aim of ensuring that claims are dealt with as economically as is possible given the technical aspects of the cases and the individual circumstances of each.”

The PSNI also said all legal costs were closely scrutinised and “have been challenged by the Chief Constable’s lawyers when appropriate”.

How can I make my headsets last for a extended time?

When we found this post we were so excited, having looked for over a year for this, discovering it on this site was an exciting day for me.

Hello and welcome to the innovative new series of answers to those earphones inquiries. Ever wanted to learn about something headset, earphone or receiver linked? Now’s your chance. Due to the great deal of questions we’re so often asked, you’ll find we’ve dipped into our mailbag and selected the 9 most applicable (and most often submitted) questions. Enjoy.

Oh, by the way, in case your question isn’t here, then just dispatch us an email and come back in a few… you may see it featured in the next series. Cheers.
Part 1: How can I make my headsets last for a longer time?

Earphones are a significant part of modern music. In the terrible old days, headsets were close to stationary turntables and the only portable music emanated mainly from ‘Ghetto Blasters’, which a kind of transportable tape player, like the one which incurs the wrath of Mr. Spock in Star Trek IV, the one about the whales.

This ultimately meant that in case you planned to listen to some music whilst out and about, (and lets face it, who does not?) everybody else within the direct vicinity had to listen to it also.
Nowadays, as any peep out of the nearest window should inform you, basically everybody is playing music inconspicuously and comfortably with the use of iPods, MP3 players and what-have-you. But, your headphones, the supply of your auditory pleasure (see what I did there? nyuk nyuk) are much like your clothes or your vehicle in that they go all over the place with you and infrequently need some TLC to keep them running for longer.

Wear and tear is the main killer of headphones (unless, like me, you park yourself on them if they’re within your pocket whilst at work…D’oh!) and as such, you may need to be aware of the following hazards.

1) Winding: wrapping your earphones all-around your MP3 device might seem like a great way to store them, but be aware of wrapping it up too tightly. If you wrap the cords too tightly or firmly, you are likely to tear the silicon wiring within, this can cause permanent damage with the wires, giving you damage to condition or whole damage to sound totally.

2) Fluids: Your headsets could appear water-resistant, but in reality, theyre not. If the speakers absorb fluid, this can warp them permanently, distorting all potential sound. Rain you can deal with, but be cautious of sweat when running or working out and, naturally, be careful for spilled drinks.

3) Heat: For that similar reason that fluids are bad (but additionally with an added threat of the wiring) unwarranted heat is a very poor thing for earphones. Stay away from leaving them in the path of direct daylight for very long, or seeking to microwave them whilst drunk.

Caring for your earphones is a relatively simple task, if the sound becomes distorted, its occasionally a good idea to wash out the speakers with a dry cotton bud, just dabbing away on the grease or make up that can develop in there. If the problem persists, run the cotton bud under some lukewarm water and try cleaning out your ears. That from time to time works.
