Razer Nari Ultimate THX Wireless Chroma Headset Review
     Tue, Mar 26 2019 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever wished your headset vibrated and you could feel what was happening in game? The Razer Nari headset was released back in September and in this review we take a look at the recently released Razer Nari Ultimate that has all the features of the original plus Hypersense technology. The tech works by converting audio signals to haptic, tactile feedback in real time that allows users to feel the sound via vibrations of the earcups. This new technology, combined with THX spatial audio, is designed to give users an advantage when it comes to competitive shooters. All this tech comes at a cost though – is Nari Ultimate worth the £199 asking price?

     Tue, Mar 19 2019 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer seems to have simplified its naming system when it comes to the new peripherals being released today. The new Razer Kraken is in fact the successor to the Kraken Pro V2, and comes with the same MSRP of £79.99. A lot of features have carried over to this new model, but Razer has also made improvements to the ear cushions, headband padding and microphone – making it similar to the more expensive Kraken TE.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, Mar 16 2019 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Arctic Pro Wireless headset is easy to set up, while the multitude of configuration options can be accessed either using the base station or SteelSeries Engine 3. Thanks to the chassis materials, the headset is quite light, while the adjustable woven sky google fabric suspension headband makes sure it will fit all head sizes and shapes. As the manufacturer does explain, only the Arctis Pro + GameDAC offering is fully Hi-Res audio certified, since the 2.4GHz wireless tech cannot support sampling rates higher than 48K. Even in this situation, we do find the same Hi-Res drivers as with the wired (GameDAC) version, while the 2.4GHz transmission mode used is lossless, for high-fidelity purposes."

Today we are reviewing the high-end ASUS Republic of Gamers Delta USB-C RGB headset. It has a beautifully ergonomic D-shaped ear cup design, and provides detailed, true to life audio with its updated Essence drivers and hi-fi grade ESS quad DAC. The headset doesn't come cheap however, as it retails at around the £169.99 mark. Does the Delta have the necessary features and quality to justify that price, or is it just pretty to look at?

Alienware AW988 Wireless Headset And AW959 Elite Mouse
     Fri, Mar 08 2019 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you think of Dell or its Alienware brand, the first thing that comes to mind is probably a PCs and not a peripheral. Be that as it may, Dell is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the peripheral market as part of a larger play, one in which it can sell gamers on a unified ecosystem through its Alienware division. You could, for example, buy an Alienware desktop and plug it into an Alienware monitor (even a giant 55-inch OLED display, if you have the bankroll), and then surround it with Alienware peripherals. Talk about an invasion!

Razer Kraken Tournament Edition Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Feb 27 2019 | 10:58A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Razer's Kraken line of gaming headsets have been around for a very long time, we actually took a look a the original Kraken Pro way back in 2013. Quite a lot has changed since then, but one thing remains the same, as gamers we want a headset that not only sounds good, but is very comfortable to wear for long gaming sessions. Today we are checking out the latest Razer gaming headset, which is the Kraken Tournament Edition. This comes as an upgrade to the Kraken 7.1 V2, which came out in late 2016. This headset brings with it 50 mm drivers, a USB controller, retractable microphone, cooling-gel ear cups, and of course that Razer style we all know and love. This is actually the first consumer product to feature THX Spatial Audio, which we will dive into as well. Razer has this headset priced at $99, which is a very crowded price-point for gaming headsets. Can it stand out? Read on as we find out..."

Logitech ticked all the boxes. Lift-to-mute mic, 3.5mm connectivity, DTS Headphone:X 2.0 surround sound, EQ functionality, G Hub software support, and more. But mmm, there was just one odd problem with the wired connection.
