The folks over at MSI are no shrinking violets when it comes to gaming PCs, and this time around, they have decided to lift the veil on what they deem to be the fiercest mobile gaming barebone PC series in the world – the MSI Aegis as well as the Aegis X. Both of these are touted to be the world’s first compact gaming barebone PC series that are full well capable of delivering full-sized performance even while one is on the move.
MSI’s Aegis will come with a proprietary B150 motherboard and CPU Cooler that can support an Intel 6th Gen processor, whereas the AEGIS X will be equipped with a Z170 motherboard that is capable of handling an Intel K-series processor. In order to ensure that performance boundaries will break into new stratospheres, the flagship AEGIS X will also boast of a Dragon OC button, which boosts speed by 15% with one touch. Sounds pretty much like one of those old school computers that come with a “Turbo” button, don’t you think so?
Specially designed for gamers who are looking to maximize space as well as power, the two AEGIS gaming barebone models feature an ultra-aggressive and compact design that conceals a plethora of cutting-edge components, including support for up to full-sized NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM, and dual NVMe PCI-E Gen3 x4 SSDs in Super RAID 4 with data speeds of up to 3300MB/s.
When it comes to cooling with all of the high end performance parts inside, fret not. The MSI AEGIS series will guarantee exceptional cooling and silence even under the most stressful battles with a patented Silent Storm Cooling 2 thermal design, whereby it will pull cold air from a couple of different chambers in order to individually cool components. Not only that, it boasts of a unique internal structure that separates a 600 Watt power supply from the main chamber, increasing thermal efficiency and allowing gamers easy access to components. The MSI AEGIS X also incorporates built-in liquid cooling so that it can take overclocking to higher levels.
Expect the MSI VR-ready AEGIS X gaming barebone with a Z170 chipset, liquid cooling and overclocking capabilities to be made available from $499.99 onward, while the AEGIS gaming barebone with a B150 chipset is also available from $399.99 onward.

You know, there are times when you will actually need to pry your young one away from the TV or computer screen simply to enjoy the great outdoors, especially when the weather is real fine and dandy.

Once you’ve used a product for a while, you notice little things that you would personally want to change to improve it. This is why there are so, so many different products available for just about everything you could think of. When it comes time to buy a new set of headphones, you not only have to decide how much you’re willing to spend, but what sort of functionality you’re looking for. Do you want over-the-ear, ear hooks, ear buds, something tiny, something HUGE? If you like working out and need something that will accommodate all the time you spend in the gym sweating it up, but can also function for everyday use, you might want to look into the Aircom A3 Headphones.
There are 4 versions of this product available, ranging in price from $29.99-59.99, named the A1, A3, A5, and JM Stereo Headphones. The A1 is for everyday music lovers, while the A3, the pair we’re looking at today, have a better seals and fitting options for those who like to be active. The A5 has wood components for better sound, and the JM are stereo, take on aspects from the A3, and are a bit flashier.
The cable is a matte rubber casing to help prevent tangling, and measures about 4.5 feet long. The top two feet of the cable separate off to lead to the left and right ear buds. Beneath the point of separation is a metal band with Aircom written in white on the side. On the left line, there’s an in-line microphone with an on/off switch for answering or ending calls and pausing or playing music. Just above this on both sides are the drivers which are encased in plastic with a silver band of metal around its center. Leading to the ear buds are air-filled hollow tubes which let the sound travel up to the ear buds. The buds are primarily plastic, except for the backing which is metal with the diamond-shaped Aircom logo on the back.
What it does:
The big selling point of these headphones are the hollow tubes with the speakers not being in the actual earbud as the space it travels through will give you more of a “live” sound. Not only does this mean you can sweat up a storm, but also that you can submerse the ear buds in a cleaning solution to get all of that disgusting wax out after a run. Don’t lie, we’ve all almost had a candle in there at some point. The backs of the buds are magnetic, and will click together so you can wear them around your neck when you need your ear holes to be open.
These headphones are meant for those with an active lifestyle, and don’t want the hum of the world around them to get in the way of their hulk session. Since I was using these with the intent of reviewing them, I tried my best to get them to knock out while exercising, but to no avail. I used the smallest of their ear bud sizing options, and was happy to find that they not only had options for the bud, but for the ring seal as well. Thankfully it wasn’t an absolute nightmare to change them out too.
Since I personally don’t like to hang my headphone cables around my neck, the magnetic feature wasn’t useful in the intended way for me. However, it provided me mindless entertainment clicking and unclicking them together because I take joy in the small things in life. The other big pull for these headphones was the air tube, and while the quality of the music came through just fine, they brought on an unexpected surprise sound-wise.
I scared myself silly a time or two by touching the air tube at random, since that’s where the sound is coming through, any bump or brush against them came through a bit louder than I was expecting, much like a stethoscope. Since I sometimes fiddle with my cables when sitting at my desk, I also found that pressing the tube cuts off the sound (hi-ho logic). The air tubes actually made wrapping them a bit strange as well due to the change in cable size and the speakers being in a different place, but it wasn’t an impossible task, just less visually satisfying. None of these are complaints, it’s more of letting you know that these are things that will happen. The sound was quite “roomy”, as I believe that’s the best way I can describe it. While the bass could’ve given a bit more in my opinion, it’s not a deal breaker.
They do their job, and they do it well. There were a few new aspects for me with the air tubes, but after the first few uses I didn’t notice them anymore. They’re priced at $49.99, and it’s not unwarranted for the quality both in build and sound. The fact that you can also wash the earbuds after use is a huge plus in my book. Just make sure to give them a little time to dry out after you wash them or you will definitely be surprised by a gush of water in your ear.

Review – Aircom A3 Headphones
Ricoh might be a name that many of us who work at offices are familiar with, what with the kind of photostat machines that they churn out.

We are not necessarily kind to our eyes. Not only do we forget our sunglasses all the time, but we then spend hours upon hours staring at a screen every day. We also get so into our work that we forget to blink, drying our eyes out and burning our corneas. It’s a very real thing. While making sure to blink more while you work can help, trying not to put one focused light in front of your eyes can lessen the damage as well.
If you want to minimize the strain of looking at a screen in a darker room, a backlight behind your monitor can help. The Lightpack will do just that, as this a content-driven lighting system that will not only give you more lighting, but will have it be the same color as what’s on the screen. This gives you a tad more indirect lighting, but also broadens what you’re looking at to be more of a visual experience.
You won’t need to worry about installing drivers as this will be automatically recognized on the first connection. It will play nicely with Windows, Mac OS, Linux, and Android, connecting through USB to your setup. While there are options for screens under 52 inches at $79, there is also a Lightpack for TVs that are 65-86” if you’re wanting the same sort of effect for your living room.
Available for purchase on Amazon
