A Game accessory reiview, oh boy. Well lets see how this one turns out in preparation for the N.Sane Trilogy. Costing me £4.99 from Tesco and other retailers provide this for a bit more like amazon.. This is a nice bundle even though i Didn't need the headset. You can see the video for this below:
Now we start with the packaging, a nice Playstation colour scheme and quite nice modern designs like the wave the xmb used to show. The pictures of the products you were actually buying is shown.

Now we get to the back, which shows the items again as well as a fair bit of translations of what the items are. This can be a bit much for some people but this is a multi national product. It is nicely laid out to see.

|The bottom of the box.|
So, when you open the box, a blue smaller box appears which encloses the items in zip bags. a nice touch so lets see what you get: .
- 1 x Bluetooth Dongle
- 1 x LP1 Headset
- 1 x Micro USB Cable
- 1 x Manual
- 1 x Dualshock 4 Silicone Cover
- 2 x Dualshock 4 thumbgrips
|The box with the items.|
This cover is quite thick in its rubber and makes a nice tight fit agained the Dualshock 4. This will make playing for long periods of time nice and comforting. The thumsticks provided a bit more grip when i tried the covers on.

This was a nice design except for the a few minor setbacks like the foam earpiece and also the problem with it connecting to the PS4 using the dongle but the headset worked on my desktop as well as connected to my tablet but no sound output from that. The dongle is not reconfigured as a bluetooth dongle but a Audio device in the PS4 and Windows.

Its a intresting kit and this can make some things feel better but the headset is not as good as it makes it out to be. But gioteck try to make it simple to use. The designs look good themselves but it can be tricky and uncomfortable with that headset.
With that in mind...
