XPG Precog Gaming Headset Review
     Sun, Jan 26 2020 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I'm quite particular about my headsets. They have to fit right, they have to be comfortable, they have to sound great, and most of all they have to be durable. I own headsets that fit those criteria. But that's not why you're here. You're here to find out how XPG's eye-catching new Precog gaming headset stacks up against those incumbents. …

Razer Kraken Ultimate Gaming Headset Review
     Sun, Jan 26 2020 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" Right after connecting the Kraken Ultimate to our testing PC and trying out some games and 4K TV Shows, we have found the headset lacking bass and overall it was not giving out very much audio detail. After adjusting the output details via Synapse software (Bass Boost, EQ settings, etc), the difference was very noticeable and it was like we were wearing a complete different headset in our hands. Thanks to the large, custom-tuned 50mm drivers, explosions and weapon noises were well represented in CS: GO, car noises were correctly rendered in Forza Horizon 4, while the Witcher TV show atmosphere and voices could really make us think that we were present in a cinema chair, especially after turning THX effects on. Granted we are not getting audiophile grade quality from this particular headset, but its audio output should be enough for most mainstream crowd, not only for games but also for other multimedia content. "

Sennheiser GSP 370 Wireless Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, Jan 25 2020 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Alongside that is a claimed 100-hour battery life, five times that of the GSP 670; an amount that almost seems unrealistic. You could go two or three weeks of reasonable usage between charging, something that’s pretty much unheard of in the wireless headset market.

Creative Sound BlasterX G6 Review
     Thu, Jan 23 2020 | 6:54P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Creative are known for making excellent audio products and more for gamers. Everyone has built in soundcards on their motherboards and these are good enough right? Well Creative think you’re wrong and that’s why they’ve made the Sound BlasterX G6 external USB sound card. This tiny package promises to change your listening experiences of gaming, media and music forever. Can this little box really have such a huge impact? We find out.

Antlion Audio Mod Mic USB @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jan 22 2020 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the years I have had a whole list of different Antlion Audio Mod Mics come into the office. The Wireless Mod Mic being the most recent and the biggest change they have made. But the formula for the standard Mod Mics has been about the same, top-level microphone performance that can be attached to quality headphones and you have a high-end gaming headset on the cheap and in most cases well above the performance possible with most gaming headsets. Other than the wireless model, they have all had a standard audio jack but that has now changed. Antlion Audio has now paired their always popular microphone with an ADC chipset (analog to digital converter, not an Attack Damage Carry from LoL) which allows for it to be hooked up directly to USB for those who don’t have an audio card or DAC that matches the quality of the Mod Mic. So today I’m going to check out the new Mod Mic USB and see if it lives up to the very high expectations that past models have set.

Genesis Radon 720 Headset Review
     Sun, Jan 19 2020 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Genesis have released the Radon 720 headset, a budget headset aimed at gamers that costs just £39.99. Its features include a self-adjusting headband, red and black gamer aesthetics with diffused red LED back-lighting, 50mm neodymium drivers and a condenser microphone. Is this just another mediocre budget headset? If you are asking that question then you are wrong. This headset is much more than that and deserves your attention.

Sound Blaster X3 External USB DAC Review
     Fri, Jan 17 2020 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
the SoundBlaster X3 puts a smile on my face every time I use it! With so many good AMP/DAC combinations finally getting affordable your onboard solution is already obsolete. We have said it before but it bears repeating: You really need to experience Creative’s Super X-Fi technology for yourself. It’s a game changer!

Creative Outlier Gold True Wireless Sweatproof Super X-Fi In-Ear Headphones
     Wed, Jan 15 2020 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After setting up the audio profile, we did start listening to various audio tracks by using the dedicated Super X-Fi application; the surround effect is rendered quite realistically thanks to the software solution and we found it better to be used in quiet environments in order to carefully observe the differences. Switching to YouTube or the stock Huawei P30 audio player does eliminate all Super X-Fi effects, so we will basically go back in Stereo mode. Even without the surround effect enabled, the Outlier Gold is able to deliver great sound quality with quite a bit of bass (audio output is pretty similar as when using over-ear headsets), while remaining well fixed in our ears even when working out, if worn properly."

Periodic Audio C (Carbon) In Ear Monitors Review
     Wed, Jan 15 2020 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The C (Carbon) IEMs by Periodic Audio are their best audiophile-grade IEMs to date and I’ve been using them with the FiiO M11 high-res music player and my lossless FLAC collection for almost three weeks now.

QPAD QH-92 Pro Gaming Premium Headset Review
     Mon, Jan 13 2020 | 6:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The QPAD QH-92 offers extensive support for multiple different platforms, including the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PCs, via an arrangement of 3.5mm adaptors and extension cables.

Cougar Attila
     Wed, Jan 08 2020 | 12:32P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Audio output is driven by 7mm graphene drivers through an integrated chamber system, providing deeper and clearer differences between levels. The Attila has dual microphones: one in a detachable noise canceling microphone boom, while the other is omni-directional in the inline control set that is turned off when the boom is installed. This allows the headset to be highly portable and capable at the same time! The fit can be customized by three sizes of foam ear tips that enhance sound and isolate exterior noises, along with three ear hooks that are included so every user can adjust to their comfort."

CORSAIR HS60 Pro Stereo Gaming Headset With 7.1 Surround Sound Review
     Wed, Jan 08 2020 | 12:32P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Offering just tiny improvements compared to its predecessor the HS60 Surround Sound Headset by CORSAIR equally represents good value for your money.

     Tue, Jan 07 2020 | 7:07P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the very successful NU Audio Premium Sound Card EVGA is strengthening their presence in the PC audio market with the brand new NU Audio Pro 7.1 model, now featuring surround sound analog outputs.

MSI Immerse GH30 Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Dec 23 2019 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Immerse GH30 features soft touch ear cups and padding on the headband to ensure that the GH30's stay comfortable no matter how long you are using them for, the ear cups are also removable in case you need to clean them for whatever reason.

ASUS ROG Cetra Gaming In-ear Headphones Review
     Wed, Dec 18 2019 | 4:49P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you’re a fan of mobile gaming or have a ROG phone and are after matching headphones, then the ROG Cetra are likely to pique your interest. The USB-C connectivity allows for compatibility with a range of devices, and other features such as active noise cancelling and a customisable ergonomic design make these in-ear headphones a tempting purchase. What are they like to use and are they worth the £115 asking price?
