Really like the look of these Sony ANC headphones.

The Sony WH-1000XM3 look and seem to review pretty well, even up against Bose QC series. I was pretty disappointed in the ANC on the Samsung Level Over I purchased a few years back that i’m still using (they do look good and sound decent otherwise). This was coming from some Nokia BH-940s (Monster) which, yes looking back, haven’t aged well style wise but had very good Active noise cancelling. Maybe too good as you had to pay attention when out and about! My only concern for these Sony’s is the little vent/ mic on the cups facing upwards, that’d be a bad situation if it started raining and you were outside with these I suspect. Apart from that oversight. I really can’t wait to try out a pair!

Anyone got a pair? Let me know your likes and dislikes in the comments.

First proper experience of VR…

So a friend organised for eight of us to go to an Escape room venue that also hosted VR games.

I really liked the fact that you had a laptop on as a backpack that gave you the freedom to move around the room without cables trailing around. It really helped with the immersion. The game its-self had fairly average puzzles to work out (or our team found them average as we took only 30mins) but the usage of lifts and teleports really made the game feel expansive as the other two players in your four-person team would suddenly be away on another platform or completely removed from vision while they worked on puzzles in another room via those transport mechanisms.

It was also fun at the end when you finished and ended up at a beach bar with an archery range and as a team had to get a high score shooting balloons, that was a nice touch while you waited for the other team. I think we got a top 6 score for that.

So essentially, I highly recommend going and trying it out! We paid around £30 per person for the experience.
