Creative Sound BlasterX G6 Review
     Thu, Sep 20 2018 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sound BlasterX G6 follows in the footsteps of the Sound BlasterX G5 from 2016 and improves upon the foundation that the G5 provided. Some notable upgrades that have been made are an enhanced DAC and Amp. The previous version utilised a 24-bit / 192kHz - which is impressive in its own right, but the G6 betters that with a new 32-bit / 384kHz variant. The Amp also sees a boost and features an ultra-low out impedance of 1ohm which is great when compared to 2.2ohm over the G5. The G6 also adds support for Dolby Digital Decoding and also increases the DNR from 120dB to 130dB.

Creative Sound BlasterX G6 7.1 HD Gaming DAC and External USB Sound Card Review
     Mon, Sep 17 2018 | 1:38P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest Sound BlasterX G6 DAC and external sound card is very flexible in terms of supported platforms, but also features important upgrades over the G5. We do have now a future-proof 32-bit/384kHz, 130dB DAC that is combined with separate amplification for each channel, marketed as Xamp. The amplifier supports up to 600 ohm headphones and with the G6 we also have now Dolby Digital Decoding. Scout Mode was been introduced quite some time ago and applies certain filters in-game, for hearing more clearly footsteps, weapons and should give you an advantage. For easy operation, we do also have a hardware button for Scout Mode, but also for switching between different preset profiles or for choosing the amplification. "

Posted by: STAFF
As a podcast host I am rather familiar with microphones. You talk into one and it records what it hears. The process is pretty simple however as with anything worth doing well the quality of the hardware does come into play.

Sennheiser HD820 Headphones Review
     Thu, Aug 30 2018 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Sennheiser release a new high end headphone, everyone in the audio world takes notice. It was therefore with great interest when they announced and subsequently released the HD820 that we have here for review today. Not because of the price jump to £2000 (from £1400 for the HD800s), but actually more that it was a closed back design. I certainly wasn’t expecting that.

Posted by: STAFF
SteelSeries' Rival 600 is a modular gaming mouse with adjustable weights, RGB LED lighting, and one big twist: a second sensor meant to minimize the amount the mouse cursor moves when gamers lift it off their desks in the heat of battle. We took the Rival 600 to the mat to see whether it gave us an extra edge.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro + GameDAC and Arctis Pro Wireless
     Tue, Aug 21 2018 | 3:22P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All the way back in November 2016 I took a look at the SteelSeries Arctis 5 and was impressed with the direction they were going. It even earned out top honors and an editors choice award. But I was waiting on the change to check out the Arctis 7 because I hate getting tangled in the wires. Well later in mid-2017 I covered the Arctis 7 and while I was really happy with it I felt like it had lost a few features from the H Wireless that were great. Well, we are back at it again, only this time SteelSeries has brought out two headsets for the high end of their product line with the Arctis Pro name. One is the Arctis Pro Wireless, I can’t wait to see how that compares to the Arctis 7 that I have been using for the past year. The others are wired Arctis Pro’s, they are the same headset only one also comes with what they call the GameDAC, a desktop DAC for those who don’t have a high-end audio card or DAC already. Today I will be checking out that version alongside of the wireless to see if both are worth their wallet busting price points.

Searching for the right poolside portable speaker
     Thu, Aug 16 2018 | 2:44P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So this summer I found myself in an interesting position, up until now my wife and I haven’t had any need for portable Bluetooth speakers, but this year we bought a new house with a pool and have spent as much time as we can out in the pool enjoying the tiny window that Ohio offers for good weather. Well, our Razer Leviathan Mini did the job at first but quickly developed a rattle prompting me to look for a new speaker. What I found was that I really didn’t know what I needed feature wise or how a lot of them compare for audio quality and loudness. So I reached out to both the LanOC social media pages (Facebook and Twitter, join us!) as well as my own Facebook as well and asked what everyone was using. There were a few that were mentioned a lot or came highly recommended, I reached out to a few companies and here we are. Ultimate Ears, a subsidiary of Logitech sent two speakers, Creative sent one, and Braven sent one as well. There were others but remember Ohio summers are so short I had to get out testing and not wait any longer. So I’ve been testing these portable speakers and today I want to dive into their features and how each of them performed.
