    Wrapping up the week (and the month), Creative Technology has sent out word about the upcoming arrival of a new gaming headset, the Draco Junior (model HS-430). Targeting users with an 'active lifestyle', Creative's headphones weight just 81 grams and have a behind-the-ear design, 30 mm Neodymium drivers, leatherette ear cups, a removable noise canceling microphone, a 2.5 meter cable with volume controls and a mute switch, and a gold-plated 3.5 mm connector.

    The Draco Junior has a recommended price tag of 27.99 Euro and is expected to become available in mid-April.

    What self-respecting gamer would want a product with the term "Junior" in the name ?
    Weak marketting at best.

    Hes also holding it with one hand so its not sitting on his lap. 'playing' with it with his other hand and i use the term 'playing' very loosely as the pic is obviously photoshopped. and ontop of that the guy is trying to look like a boss but he hasnt got the headset plugged in. unless the Audio/Mic holes on the side of the laptop in the pic are for plugging in RF antennas or something random...

    secondly what kind of tard takes a laptop like that with a batterylife of an hour to a beach where sand or saltwater can get to it? there is a time for everything and its time for the checking out hot chicks at the beach not staring down leeroy jenkins. Id hate for my laptops internals to get clogged up with sand and shit. its a fucking nightmare to clean out as it gets everywhere
    arterius2 and Cybrnook say thanks.

    Creatives stuff are not that bad actually, they are usually pretty good at their price points.

    Wait...what does having an 'active lifestyle' have anything to do with it? You can't game and work out at the same time(unless your the guy gaming one-handed in the picture provided).

    Why aren't they plugged into his photoshopped HP Laptop? Looks like a ZD Series.
