Audio-Technica’s New Wireless ATH-G1WL and ATH-G1 Gaming Headsets
Bring Immersive Studio-Quality Sound to Game Audio

STOW, OH, July 1, 2019 — Audio-Technica today announced the introduction of its ATH-G1WLwireless and ATH-G1 premium gaming headsets. Taking design inspiration from the company’s iconic ATH-M50x professional studio headphones, the headsets boast precision audio reproduction and powerful performance as well as comfort and convenience.

The new headsets will transform even the most demanding players’ gaming sessions, as the lightweight design and proven studio audio quality allow both esports players and casual gamers to enjoy a long gaming session in extreme comfort.

“A compelling gaming experience just isn’t complete without great sound,” said Bob Peet, Audio-Technica US Marketing Manager. “Our new ATH-G1WL and ATH-G1 deliver powerful, expansive audio quality that lets gamers experience all the sonic impact of home gaming, online streaming and eSports.”




Audio-Technica ATH-G1

The wired ATH-G1 (SRP: US$169.00) is compatible with PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and any platform with a 3.5 mm headset connector. Once plugged in, the headset provides a secure connection and offers a superior audio experience.

Specially-tuned large-diameter 45mm drivers bring precise, clear studio-quality sound to game audio, while its 1,300mW input capacity takes full advantage of dedicated sound cards to deliver a full-force gaming experience.

Audio-Technica’s experience in developing professional broadcasting microphones, used at some of the largest sporting events throughout the world, has been employed to design a detachable boom microphone. Engineered for accurate voice communication and command, the ATH-G1’s microphone will not pick up distractions, like keyboards or ambient noise, with its hyper-cardioid directionality.

The ATH-G1’s lightweight design and breathable earpads keep the wearer comfortable through longer sessions, while the mic’s detachable design means the headset can be quickly transformed into on-the-go headphones. The 6.6′ cable’s inline remote features volume and mute controls and a Y-type stereo headset cable is also included.


Audio-Technica ATH-G1WL

Equipped with the same 45mm drivers and specially-engineered detachable microphone as the ATH-G1, with the added flexibility of stable, low-latency 2.4GHz wireless connectivity, the ATH-G1WL (SRP: US$249.00) is convenient, comfortable and cutting-edge. It also adds virtual surround sound, for an even more immersive 3D audio gaming experience that places you in the center of the action.

With 15 hours of battery life, the headset will last through the longest gaming sessions — but it will also work while charging. It features controls for surround sound, volume and mute on the earcup.

The ATH-G1WL is compatible with laptops and PCs via its wireless USB Type A transceiver. A pair of extra earpads is in the box for future replacement.

Cubibot: The new standard of modern consumer 3D printer-A Preview!

We are intrigued by the Cubibot, a new 3d printer on Kickstarter.

Cubibot balances functionality and ease of use without compromising features. Matching the performance and quality of expensive, professional 3D printers at an affordable cost, Cubibot enables you to realize all your imaginations!   

 

It seems like a solidly designed device and would work well in educational environments, especially since it is completely enclosed and it offers an on-board air filter too.

Review of Meds Biotech CBD & Turmeric Capsules

We recently received samples of Med Biotech’s Tumeric CBD Capsules.

I had not previously tried Marijuana or CBD, which in nearly 50 years of life is pretty significant. I am type 2 diabetic, and acid reflex issues as well as off and on stomach pain from the Metformin and other medicines that I have taken for the last 13+ years. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes when I was 36.

Here are some details on medbiotech’s CBD/Tumeric Capsules:

CBD Meds Biotech capsules are pharmacist formulated CBD capsules which contain a regular dose of Turmeric.

20mg of CBD and 25mg of Turmeric per serving.Product CategoryCBD CapsulesBrandMeds BiotechCBD TypeFull Spectrum CBD

Meds Biotech CBD & Turmeric Capsules


https://www.medsbiotech.com/products/meds-biotech-cbd-turmeric-capsules

I have been trying the capsules for about 2.5 weeks. I usually take 2 per day each morning. In the last 2 plus weeks, they have helped my stomach issues quite a bit. I usually have stomach issues, like having to run to the bathroom with stomach pain at least twice per week, sometimes more. My wife is a great cook, but makes spicy food quite often. Between the awesome food and my medicines, I also typically have had bad acid reflux almost daily for the last year or so. Since I started taking the CBD Tumeric Pills, my acid reflux is about 90% better and my stomach issues have been almost entirely gone. I have also noticed that my blood sugar has been averaging 20-30 points lower than it was prior to taking the cbd/tumeric pills. I have not noticed any other affects from taking them. I am asperger’s and have heard that their are some benefits to using CBD but I have not noticed any serious impact from their use in that respect so far. My benefits have been a reduction in intestinal issues, acid reflux and a blood sugar decrease. I am am not a doctor and can not guarantee how they would work for other people but they are having some positive impact on my body. These are THC free so they will not impact you in a “drug” type of way. I would recommend trying them for your self to judge their affect on your and your system.

According to Meds Biotech:

Harvested From Our Farms.

Our Non-GMO organically-grown plants are manually selected with careful precision, then gently harvested and dried under the most ideal conditions.  

Quality Check.

Our raw materials are constantly quality tested to ensure that they meet highest standards. 

CO2 Extraction.

Supercritical Extraction is one of our most gentle approaches to extract high-quality CBD, which retains the naturally occurring beneficial molecules in the hemp plant.

Lab Tested.

Every batch of an extract is lab-tested to ensure a consistent product and to achieve the utmost purity in our products. We carefully supervise the entire process, from growth to manufacturing, and distribution. 

Here is an interesting and beneficial article on turmeric and its’ benefits:

Please see this highly relevant article that talks about the numerous benefits of turmeric. It really is a remarkable spice with tons of healing benefits, and we feel everyone should know about it!

Preview of our upcoming review: CBD Edibles from Meds Biotech!

Meds Biotech Logo

I have never tried any type of CBD products and have never tried any Marijuana Products either. I am on the autism spectrum as are my 3 kids. I am also have type 2 Diabetes. Every time that I go to a trade event or street fair or autism event I have heard about CBD Products. Now that Marijuana is also legal in Nevada I have heard more and more and more about the health benefits of CBD products. We recently were contacted by the Pr folks who work with several companies that are reputable and produce CBD products. We are going to have the opportunity to test and review a variety of CBD products in the next month. Soon we will be getting CBD Gummy Bears from Meds Biotech.

Once we have the samples from Meds Biotech we will try, review and report back on our perceptions as to what they actually do in terms of their impact on the body such as reducing back pain or anxiety. see https://www.medsbiotech.com/collections/cbd-edibles

In regards to Meds Biotech:

Their products are specially formulated by CBD experts.


100% Natural CBD

Their CBD is 100% natural with no synthetics to ensure the highest quality.

According to their website:

A New Frontier In Pharmaceutical CBD.

Trust in Meds Biotech to deliver the highest quality, best CBD products, using all-natural ingredients, 100% organic hemp and the highest methods of production.

According to Web MD:

MONDAY, May 7, 2018 (HealthDay News) — Cannabidiol (CBD) oil has become the hot new product in states that have legalized medical marijuana.

The non-intoxicating marijuana extract is being credited with helping treat a host of medical problems — everything from epileptic seizures to anxiety to inflammation to sleeplessness.

I have heard locally that some people say that CBD has helped with body pain, reducing blood sugar as well as stress.

We will test and review the products that we get and will report back as to their effects.

How does CBD Work?

CBD oil works in conjunction with the endocannabinoid system. Because CBD is a cannabinoid, it helps to supplement the body’s natural cannabinoids, in turn strengthening the endocannabinoid system. In other words, the endocannabinoid system is a vast system of cannabinoid receptors. Furthermore, the body itself produces its own natural cannabinoids. CBD oil or cannabidiol, in general, is known as a phytocannabinoid (plant-based cannabinoid) which can help to supplement the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

CBD edibles are usually found in something sweet, like CBD gummies. It’s a great way to get your daily dose of pharmacist-formulated CBD oil, especially if you are an on-the-go person who doesn’t have time to relax with an oil or something else.

Turmeric is an excellent addition to your CBD oil, which is why we put in in our CBD capsules. Some studies show that turmeric helps as a possible antioxidant, an anti-inflammatory, and with heart health.

We are looking forward to testing and reviewing the samples that we receive to get an idea of how they work and their impact on the body.

Happy Thanksgiving to all from those of us at Technewszone.com

We appreciate all of our friends and supporters. I appreciate my wife and 3 young adult children!

So far this year has been better than last year. In January I will start the alternative route to licensing for High School science teaching! I also sell solar and other construction products too!
