I recently bought this, the Gioteck EX-02 bluetooth headset for PS3. Following is a short unpacking set and a rundown of the contents. I also included a micro-review for those interested in this headset.

And all the contents are:
– left ear piece
– USB cable
– charging cradle
– EX-02 headset (comes with right ear piece attached)
– user manual

The Gioteck EX-02 is an excellent set, it costs a bit but it is well within a normal price range.
I don’t know if it can connect to other devices but as it’s made specifically for PS3 it is easy to connect to (or pair with) the PS3.

The sound quality of both the mic and speaker is good, no complaints so far!

The faceplate is replaceable if you don’t like the color, but no replacements are included in the set.
The set is very light, you’ll barely notice it’s there. The earpiece can be switched out to accommodate fitment on either your left or right ear, which is very useful.


Pokémon HeartGold Unpacking

Always fun, unpacking new goodies. This time I got my greedy paws on a US import of Pokémon HeartGold.

The box

The box, a bit bigger than your standard DS package due to the included Pokéwalker.
Depicted on the box is Ho-Oh, the legendary Pokémon exclusive to HeartGold. The SoulSilver version has the legendary Pokémon called Lugia.

Back of the box

The back of the box, with a summary of the contents and possibilities.

The contents

The contents of the box, the Pokéwalker is packed separately from the game cartridge. And apparently it does not take kindly to being washed, just so you know.

Cartridge & booklet

Nothing special here, just the game cartridge and the booklet as you’d expect.

Pokéwalker backplates

The Pokéwalker comes with an extra backplate. The extra backplate has a clip which enables you to carry the Pokéwalker on your belt.

Pokéwalker size

And lastly, in case you were wondering, this is the size of the Pokéwalker next to the DS cartridge.

The works!

While cleaning up lately I decided to preserve my NES, which is still in mint condish, by storing it away safely. And what better way to protect it than in it’s original packaging?

It's all still there
