Sennheiser’s new IE 300 in-ear headphones have been meticulously crafted to offer nuanced, natural sound on the go. Powered by a refined version of Sennheiser’s 7mm Extra Wide Band (XWB) transducer to ensure a well-balanced sound signature and excellent sonic accuracy, the new IE 300 combines superior sound with premium, professional audio-inspired design.
Passionate audio enthusiasts demand a detailed high-fidelity listening experience not just at home, but everywhere they go. Sennheiser’s new IE 300 features a refined version of the audio specialist’s acclaimed 7mm Extra Wide Band (XWB) transducer, manufactured at the company’s headquarters in Germany, ensuring superior sound quality, with a well-balanced sound signature and excellent sonic accuracy.
Every component has been carefully tuned to refine the listening experience: This includes an optimized membrane foil that minimizes natural resonances and total harmonic distortion (THD < 0.08 % at 1 kHz, 94 dB), a transducer back volume designed to minimize reflection within the housing and a resonator chamber that removes masking resonances in the ear canal for more refined and detailed treble. Offering a frequency response of 6 Hz – 20 kHz, the IE 300 delivers clear high frequencies with a subtle and warm musicality that brings greater intimacy to vocals.
“When you are passionate about audio, details matter. That’s why we meticulously crafted the IE 300 to let listeners hear every nuance in their music,” said Jermo Köhnke, Product Manager at Sennheiser. “The IE 300 is designed to be a companion on the go, while still providing a superior audio experience, no matter your surroundings.”
The IE 300 offers exceptional durability and comfort, with a design inspired by the world of professional audio. Its ergonomic features include individually adjustable flexible ear hooks, as well as silicone and memory foam ear adaptors in three sizes (S/M/L). This not only ensures a perfectly secure fit and superb wearing comfort for long listening sessions, but also offers optimum noise isolation, guaranteeing that audio enthusiasts can enjoy undisturbed listening even in busy environments or on the move.
The IE 300’s supplied 3,5mm cable is reinforced with para-aramid for outstanding stability even after thousands of bend cycles and can easily be replaced for optimal flexibility. For additional strain relief, the high-quality gold-plated Fidelity+ MMCX connector is seated in a recessed, 4.8mm-wide socket in the housing. Balanced cables with 2.5mm or 4.4 connectors are also available as optional accessories. A premium carry case is included for safe and convenient storage. The Sennheiser IE 300 is available in UAE for AED 1,199.00 inclusive of VAT.
Logitech G Intros the PRO X TKL LIGHTSPEED Gaming Keyboard and G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2 Gaming Mouse
Logitech G, a brand of Logitech has launched two newest products in the PRO Series line – the Logitech G PRO X TKL LIGHTSPEED Gaming Keyboard and Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2 Gaming Mouse. Over the past three years, Logitech G has been working with hundreds of the world’s most- skilled professional esports athletes to create the next generation of PRO Series gear.
These new products, when combined with the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset launched earlier this year, complete the PRO Series line, offering the highest level of PC performance across mice, keyboards and headsets. “The exciting new PRO Series portfolio represents a pure and uncompromised product collection, designed for maximum performance of elite esports professionals and the most competitive gamers playing at the peak of potential” stated Brent Barry, Head of Esports and PRO Series at Logitech G. “These products exemplify our commitment to pushing the limits of performance, speed, and reliability, which is only made possible through our multi-year, collaborative design process with professional esports athletes. Our elite athlete partners help design, develop and test our products, ensuring they deliver the highest level of performance, quality and cutting-edge innovation.”
“The mouse and keyboard are the most important part of PC Gaming. If my mouse doesn’t feel like an extension of my hand, I won’t play well. The Superlight 2 feels weightless and I don’t have to think about it. The Superlight 2 is like the first Superlight but better. And with its compact design and its trusted lightspeed wireless technologies, the Pro X TKL is perfect if you want a clean setup They’re both must-haves if your goal is to win,” stated Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev, Counter-Strike player for NAVI.
The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2 Gaming Mouse combines precision, performance and reliability, making it an indispensable advantage for elite-level gaming. State-of-the-art technologies and features include its LIGHTFORCE Hybrid Switches, a new hybrid optical-mechanical switch technology that combines the revolutionary performance of optical sensors in speed and reliability while providing the crisp response and mechanical feel that Pros love.
The new mouse also includes the brand new HERO 2 Sensor, with tracking at over 500 inches per second and up to 32,000 DPI. Its unique dual array design increases working range and maintains tracking performance, even when lifting or tilting the mouse. Based on feedback from pro gamers, the new PRO X Superlight retains its award-winning shape and geometry of the original PRO Superlight and also a weight of only 60 grams.
Additional features include PRO-grade technology, USB-C, 95-hour battery life, POWERPLAY compatibility, larger array size and a best-in-class 25 kilohertz maximum frame rate. Zero-additive PTFE mouse feet deliver a smooth glide for seamless reactivity to any game. Like the PRO X Superlight 2 Gaming Mouse, the new Logitech G PRO X TKL Wireless Gaming Keyboard was also designed for pros to deliver the highest level of competitive play. Its tenkeyless form factor features programmable keys, RGB lighting with LIGHTSYNC, dedicated media controls and volume roller, and the trusted performance and reliability of Logitech G’s LIGHTSPEED wireless technology. In addition to the LIGHTSPEED dongle, players can connect via Bluetooth or via the included USB-C to USB-A cable.
PRO X TKL features dual-shot PBT keycaps that let LIGHTSYNC RGB shine through. The standard layout allows for third-party keycap compatibility, and additional media keys create quick access while grinding, a detail many pro players requested. Plus, being tenkeyless means more room for mouse movement, an important advantage for competitive players. Players can take their game on the go with the keyboard’s included carry case and choose between Tactile Switches (GX Brown), Linear Switches (GX Red) or Clicky Switches (GX Blue).
For pros, the smallest setting change can make the difference between victory and second place.

HUAWEI Launches the new Eyewear 2 Smart Glasses with Open Acoustic Design
Huawei is taking wearable audio tech to the next level with the launch of the Eyewear 2 smart glasses. Now available in the UAE, the IP54 water and sweat-resistant Eyewear 2 combines seamless style with robust performance, making it a quintessential daily companion. These smart glasses feature an open acoustic design, intuitive smart features, and a comfortable and lightweight design for all-day wear. The new HUAWEI Eyewear 2 is compatible with Huawei devices as well as other Android and iOS devices, and is available in the UAE at a price of AED 899 from Huawei’s Experience Stores and e-shop.
The Eyewear 2 comes in Browline Eyewear frames and Rectangle Half-Frame Eyewear frames. The Browline Eyewear design features a 4.7g ultra-light frame (excluding lenses) made from β titanium, in a sleek Titanium Silver hue. The streamlined floating frame creates the impression of levitating lens, creating a space-age look. The β titanium is a hallmark of high-end eyewear, as it boasts superior strength, corrosion resistance, and pliability.
The Rectangle Half-Frame Eyewear has a longer upper frame, which gives the wearer a more vibrant and casual look. The frame exudes trendiness and versatility. It strikes the perfect balance between aesthetics and utility. The frame’s brow line features a high-density textured plate, for higher gloss and greater resistance to deformation and discolouration and the nose bridge is made of metal.
The Eyewear 2 will give you an all-day battery life. On a full charge, it provides 11 hours of listening time, 9 hours of calling and up to 4 days of standby time. That means when you wear it without actively using the audio features, it can last for up to 4 days. And if stored in a protective case, it can maintain power for at least 1 month. Charging up the eyewear is also fast and easy. A quick 10-minute charge will give you up to 3 hours of music playback, and a 50-minute charging session results in a full charge.
The HUAWEI Eyewear 2 features an open acoustic design, that accurately projects sound to your ear through directional sound transmission technology. This design allows users to stay aware of their surroundings while listening to audio. The open acoustic design is also healthier than in-ear headphones as it does not block the ear canals, minimising bacterial growth and hearing loss.
HUAWEI Eyewear 2 employs the industry-first Codirectional Dual-Diaphragm Dynamic Driver with a square speaker design, Dual-Face Symmetrical Sound Devices, and new Smoother Front-Facing Acoustic Outlets, to achieve high-quality sound transmission. The second-generation Reverse Sound Field Acoustic System provides intelligent volume adjustment while subtly cancelling sound waves, boosting user listening privacy.
HUAWEI Eyewear 2 has multiple sensors on each side, including a large touch area and a sliding sensor zone. These sensors allow you to use a variety of smart touch controls[ You can customise the gestures in the AI Life app. Actual features may vary.]. You can easily connect your glasses with smartphones and tablets, and enjoy a low-latency audio flow across multiple devices. This is very convenient for users who need to multi-task and switch between devices when working at home or in the office.
With its IP54 certification for sweatproof and water resistance, the Eyewear 2 is also designed to handle everyday use in all conditions. HUAWEI Eyewear 2 is designed to be ergonomic and comfortable to wear. Huawei also optimised the design of the nose pads and hinges based on four years of research in ergonomics and structural design. These improvements provide users with a comfortable wearing experience all day long.
The Ultimate Buying Guide: Gaming Keyboards
When shopping for a gaming keyboard, focus on key factors: latency, switch types, and comfort. Consider extras such as RGB, media controls, and software customisation. Most gamers prefer mechanical keyboards for lower latency and more features. We’ve tested a wide range of keyboards and here are our recommendations for some of the best gaming keyboards we have reviewed so far!
ASUS ROG Azoth Wireless Gaming Keyboard
ASUS’ Republic of Gamers has a reputation for producing high-quality gaming products, including gaming gear, peripherals, PCs, laptops, and smartphones. Their latest offering, the Azoth Wireless Gaming Keyboard, is no exception. This keyboard is loaded with features and connectivity options and takes it a step further by offering a fully customisable experience.
Every key on the keyboard is hot-swappable and the board itself is designed to provide the best tactile experience for gamers. Additionally, the ROG Azoth comes with a DIY Switch Lube kit to ensure consistent performance. The Azoth aims to satisfy both gamers and keyboard customizers by providing a comprehensive package. The build quality of the ROG Azoth keyboard is impressive. Its three-layer system ensures a comfortable and responsive typing experience that surpasses many keyboards we have tested in the past.
The Azoth also comes packed with a 2-inch OLED display that can be customised to display information about system operations, control multimedia functions, and manage certain keyboard functions. It comes with a small knob and button controller that makes it quite practical to use. It essentially creates a shortcut menu for some basic functions, saving the hassle of loading up the Armory Crate software. The ASUS ROG Azoth Wireless Gaming Keyboard is thus the ultimate gaming keyboard around.
Corsair K70 RGB TKL Champion Series Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Corsair’s K70 RGB TKL Champion Series Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is an excellent gaming keyboard that comes in a tenkeyless form factor. For those uninitiated, Tenkeyless is a term used to describe keyboards that do not have a 10-key numeric keypad on the right side. The tenkeyless design is absolutely amazing for gaming, doing away with the Numpad. This, in turn, gives your mouse a lot more room to manoeuvre, since you usually get little use out of a Numpad in most gaming situations. The reduction in size also means a reduction in weight, making it easier to lug your mechanical keyboard around.
The keyboard also comes with a “Tournament Switch”, just next to the USB Type-C, which when flicked, makes the keyboard competition-ready. What this means is that it changes the backlighting on the K70 RGB TKL to a single static colour for less distraction and disables custom actions and macros. The keyboard is very well-built and the design is top-notch. You get a sort of a brushed metal look up top, while the keys themselves are quite nice. Underneath the keyboard, you get the anti-slip pads and the flip-out keyboard legs. In terms of polling rates, at default, the keyboard is at 1000Hz. However, if speed is what you need, you can change it to 8000Hz using the iCUE software.
Ducky One 3 Mini Classic RGB Keyboard
Fancy switches and LCD screens are no longer enough to stand out in the keyboard market. To excel, manufacturers must offer sought-after features such as high-quality stabilisers, durable (preferably PBT) keycaps, and even hot-swap PCBs, which are becoming increasingly demanded by users. The Ducky One 3 Mini Classic RGB Keyboard also introduces QUACK Mechanics, a series of improvements that earned its name in a lighthearted manner.
As a 60% keyboard, its compact size contributes to its enhanced rigidity, making it feel like a keyboard designed for durability and resilience. The design team at Ducky truly crafted a keyboard ready for any challenge. Since this is a 60% form factor keyboard, it only retains the essential keys and sheds all the extras. It leaves out the function row, number pad, arrow keys, navigation buttons, and media keys.
Razer Huntsman Mini Analog
Razer’s new Huntsman Mini Analog is a new version of its compact 60% gaming keyboard. The standout feature on the Huntsman Mini Analog is optical switches with variable actuation, which let gamers assign two functions to a single keystroke depending on how hard the key is pressed.
The keyboard is designed for “LAN players, fans of minimalist gaming set-ups, or those looking to save space, whilst giving users the fine control and precision demanded by today’s games.” Note that to use dual-step actuation on the keyboard, you’ll have to run the Razer Synapse software. Dual-step lets you press a key lightly and hold it until you’re ready, then press all the way down to initiate a follow-up action. It can be used, for example, to combine actions like equipping an item and then using it.
SteelSeries Apex Pro TKL
SteelSeries’ esports-ready TKL design allows for a cleaner desktop space whilst also giving more room for large sweeping mouse movement, ensuring game-winning moments go unimpeded. For the first time, the Apex Pro TKL will be untethered and available with next-gen high-performance Quantum 2.0 Dual Wireless technology.
With the Apex Pro TKL, users can take advantage of OmniPoint 2.0 technology to switch between agile 0.2mm actuation and deep and purposeful 3.8mm key presses. The TKL design gives users more desk space, for clutch plays while still being transportable to LAN events. A built-in OLED smart display allows gamers to see the game system and chat information as it happens, making the need to minimize games a thing of the past. Double shot PBT keycaps ensure the keycaps last just as long as the 100m keystroke-rated switches.
Logitech’s new G715 Gaming Keyboard from the Aurora Collection delivers low-key vibes with high-key performance so you can express yourself and play your way. You can float away with its dreamy white design and comfy, cloud-shaped keyboard palm rest. With a tenkeyless layout and adjustable height, this is an ideal compact mechanical keyboard for gaming that gives you that good game feeling, all day long.
The G715 release arrives with a slick white design that comes backed by per-key RGB backlighting and GX Red tactile switches. The wireless form factor works over both Bluetooth and the 2.4GHz wireless receiver and also features other fun inclusions like a dedicated volume scroll bar, media controls, and a customisable top plate.
