Introduction:

AudioFXGimmick's are a dime a dozen these days and appear everywhere.  Everywhere you look there is a company trying to get you to spend your money on something you don't need that promises to make your life better.  What separates a gimmick from a good product is that the product actually works, and does what it claims.  Today we are putting this philosophy to the test as we take a look at eDimensional's AudioFX Force Feedback Gaming Headset to determine if vibration headphones are valuable or if they are a gimmick.  We will find out whether or not a "Force Feedback Gaming Headset" is worth spending a bit of money on or if your money is better spent elsewhere.

This headset is aimed at the gamer and promises to provide a more immersive experience by providing sound that you can not only hear but also feel.  I've played with a lot of headsets over the years and it will be interesting to see if the AudioFX merely shakes by brain or if it shakes some life into some rather flat audio in games, music and movies.

Packaging:

eDimensional packages the headphones is a nice clear package that is flashy and should catch you eye on the store shelf.  The AudioFX headset comes in a plastic clamshell type enclosure that you have to destroy in order to open.  Due to the shiny nature of the plastic, it was almost impossible to take a decent photo without a reflection of some sort.  Click any of the thumb nailed images below for a larger picture.

The front of the package brandishes the motto "Vibration Is Good!" as well a couple of quotes from other sites that have liked this headset.  We are not the first to look at this headset by all means, but with games requiring a good pair of headphones and a microphone, we feel that it is time to give this product some attention.  The back of the package shows more information as far as installation and general usage of the volume and vibration control.  It should be a no-brainer on how to hook these up, but the additional USB connector may screw up some people.  (We'll talk more about that in a minute.)
