Etymotic ER4 XR & SR
     Mon, Aug 21 2017 | 5:38P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Etymotic's ER4 in-ears set the benchmark when they were first launched over 25 years ago. Recently, Etymotic decided to bring out two new versions of their ER4 design - namely, the XR (Extended Response) and SR (Studio Reference). These new versions feature all-metal housings and a brand new cable design. On the acoustic side of things, you now get the choice between elevated bass and something that should be close to neutral in terms of the Studio Reference.

Origin PC EON15-S Review: A Svelte, Sensibly-Priced Gaming Laptop
     Mon, Aug 21 2017 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was not that long ago when the idea of buying a gaming laptop meant spending a heavy premium versus a desktop setup. That was always a tough pill to swallow, because for the most part, there was no way to upgrade critical components like a GPU, down the road a bit. What you got is what you would have to live with for the life of your laptop. That latter restriction remains today but now, more than ever with more powerful mobile platforms, gaming laptops can offer a reasonably good return on investment. That is certainly true of the EON15-S from Origin PC, the 15.6-inch frag-ready notebook we're looking at today.

Three entry level ‘audiophile’ headphones reviewed
     Mon, Aug 21 2017 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here at KitGuru we review a lot of gaming headsets. Over the last year alone, I’ve seen offerings from Corsair, HyperX, Razer, Fnatic Gear and ASUS ROG to name just five manufacturers. Most of the headsets we review cost between £50-100, making them good options if you don’t want to spend a fortune. However, what if you’re ready to take the next step and upgrade your headset to something better – a dedicated pair of audio-grade headphones, for instance?

Sound BlasterX AE-5 Review: An Uncompromising
     Thu, Aug 17 2017 | 6:36P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Creative Labs was instrumental in evolving PC audio with notable products, like the Sound Blaster 16, AWE 32, AWE64, Live!, Audigy, X-Fi, and Extigy, and algorithms like EAX technology. Most of its competitors through the last three decades, like Yamaha, ESS, Turtle Beach, Auzentech and M-Audio, evolved their product line-ups or faded into obscurity. There were acquisitions of Aureal and Sensaura technologies that further boosted Creative's technology portfolio, too. Sound cards seem passé nowadays, as motherboard manufacturers hop up high-definition audio codecs with higher quality op-amps, capacitors, shielding and S/PDIF outputs, that make discrete sound cards a harder sell. But despite all the optimizations and tweaks to on-board audio, there’s only so much you can do with cost-conscious audio codecs. That's where the Sound BlasterX AE-5 comes in...

Cooler Master MasterPulse MH320 Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Aug 16 2017 | 9:39P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As we mentioned in our review of the Cooler Master MasterSet MS120, Cooler Master is launching some very inexpensive gaming accessories to get you going. When building a new PC one of the last things you think about is the accessories, but they are needed and you want products that are going to perform, not a 5-year old keyboard and earbuds that came with your phone. That is where the Cooler Master MasterPulse MH320 comes in. This large headset is ready for all of your gaming situations with large over the ear ear cups, a comfortable self-adjusting headband, and and fold away boom microphone. Let’s take a look!"

Cooler Master MasterPulse MH320
     Tue, Aug 15 2017 | 3:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
By releasing the MasterPulse MH320, their least-expensive gaming headset to date, Cooler Master tries to grab the attention of gamers on a very tight budget. Even though it costs a mere $40, it offers a dual-headband design, a foldable bi-directional boom microphone, and a few other interesting features.

Cooler Master MasterPulse MH320 Headset Review
     Tue, Aug 15 2017 | 3:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The most interesting thing about the new MasterPulse MH320 headset from Cooler Master is undoubtedly the price – at £34.99 here in the UK, it is by far the cheapest gaming headset I have ever tested. The very low price does raise several questions about audio performance and build quality, though, so we will have to address those in our review.

GAMDIAS HEBE M1 RGB Gaming Headset Review
     Mon, Aug 14 2017 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"By having its hardware/software implementation based on C-Media audio, we do get quite a rich set of configuration inside the HERA software for the HEBE M1 RGB headset. The Virtual 7.1 speaker surround can be used when watching various multimedia content and we were happy to see that the positioning of the speakers in the simulated room can be altered on our preference, including their individual volume. As most gaming-oriented headsets, the bass is noticeable even at the stock settings, but it is not over-the-top in order to cause headaches after prolonged use; we can adjust its intensity by using the 10-band Equalizer but we can as well enable the vibration unit for even more immersion."

Logitech Powerplay system
     Fri, Aug 11 2017 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At an entry price of at least $200 ($100 for the charging base and $100 for the G703), the Logitech Powerplay will likely be the most expensive mouse pad you've ever bought. But if you love the clean look and flexibility of wireless mice and hate limited battery life, the Powerplay is definitely worth it, even in this first generation design."

Razer Seiren Pro RZ05-0132 Microphone Review
     Tue, Aug 08 2017 | 4:12P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Razer Seiren Pro is a very versatile microphone. Armed with four pickup patterns with a choice of USB and XLR outputs & three 14mm condenser capsules. Naturally, the multi function of the microphone is suitable for people who want an all-in-one solution and have future readiness to increase the quality by using a mic preamp. While I would have like to say such microphones would be wasted for streamers and voice-overs who will use a single polar pattern, there are many times these users switch between cardioid and stereo polar pattern depending on their requirement at the time. Other polar patterns can be useful in certain scenarios such as group podcasting, round table conference, interviews and discussions. So if you are a person who has more than one usefulness either now or the potential future, you would at microphones such as this.

VisionTek SoundTube Pro Wireless Speaker @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Aug 06 2017 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Portable speakers is an area, like keyboards and mice, and for a while SSDs everyone seems to have their own model. Even VisionTek who I would normally associate with video cards has gotten into the market. They have their SoundTube Pro Wireless Speaker with a pill like shape only with a large grill across both the front and back. So they sent one over, curious what we thought of it so today I’m going to see what it is all about and find out if it is a good pickup to take out with you this summer while you are enjoying the weather.

Logitech G433 7.1 Wired Surround Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, Aug 05 2017 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those that keep up with current events in the tech space will notice that the timing of this review is coincidental as Logitech recently announced the acquisition of gaming headset maker ASTRO Gaming which is a big win for them. ASTRO Gaming made some of the best gaming headsets on the market so Logitech gets a nice boost in that department. However, at the present we have their G433 7.1 Wired Surround Gaming Headset sitting here begging to be played with, so we’ll oblige and get to it...

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
