VIZIO SB362An-F6 36? Sound Bar Review
     Thu, Jul 12 2018 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past several years home entertainment has undergone a transformation, slowly replacing bookshelf style speakers for sound bar systems. While many enthusiasts still cling to their large speaker systems, others have seen the wisdom in downsizing. Offering big sound for under $100, the 2018 VIZIO 36-Inch 2.1 Sound Bar with Built-in Dual Subwoofers (model SB362An-F6) delivers more than you might expect. In this article for Benchmark Reviews, we test this Bluetooth/wired 2.1-channel sound system using Dolby Audio and DTS media.

Creative iRoar Wireless Intelligent Speaker Review
     Tue, Jul 10 2018 | 4:19P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After fully charging the iRoar as soon as it arrived, we have connected the speaker via USB to our computer, in order to try out the Dashboard but also to check for the latest firmware updates. The software has updated the speaker firmware in about a minute and we were ready to rock! After listening plenty of clips on YouTube, some TV shows and the Death Wish movie with Bruce Willis, we were quite surprised how loud the speaker can get. After enabling Roar mode, everything got boosted, including the bass effects, which is a treat during action scenes. The speaker can deliver when playing games as well, thanks to the multitude of drivers (active (subwoofer driver and the two frontal tweeter drivers) and passive (two radiators on the side))."

the GAME ONE headset
     Tue, Jul 10 2018 | 4:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sennheiser is one of the most respected names in the audio world and especially with headphone users. Almost five years ago, they released the GAME ONE headset and set a new high water mark for PC gaming audio. In late 2016, the company began reshaping its gaming line with a new “GSP” series, first with the entry-level GSP 300, which is still one of the best headsets you can buy for under $90. This year, they’re taking on the other end of the spectrum and releasing a new gaming flagship: the GSP 600. With an MSRP of $249, it doesn’t come cheap, but is easily one of the best headsets in its class.

Corsair HS70 Review
     Tue, Jul 10 2018 | 4:11P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HS70 is the newest addition to the HS lineup and sits above both the HS60 and HS50 in the range. They look very similar in terms of aesthetics but improve upon the feature set by introducing 2.4GHz low-latency wireless audio and precision-tuned 50mm audio drivers that are capable of producing 20Hz to 20,000Hz. That isn’t all on the audio front as they feature support for virtual 7.1 audio as well as a customisable equaliser that can be utilised in Corsair’s iCUE software.

Cougar's Phontum gaming headset
     Fri, Jun 29 2018 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cougar's Phontum gaming headset brings a dose of audiophile style to a price point usually populated by generic plastic cans. We put the Phontum's amply-cushioned ear pads on before talking and listening through this pair of cans to see whether it stands out for $50.

Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 Pure Edition Hi-Resolution
     Sat, Jun 23 2018 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" After finalizing the hardware installation of the the AE-5 Pure Edition card to our test system, we did proceed further with the Sound Blaster Connect 2 installer, which did also contain the necessary drivers; in order to have the Aurora RGB setup functional, we also have to supply extra power via Molex., After adjusting the EQ with our preferences, together with the BlasterX Acoustic Engine settings, we did start the listening experience by connecting the SteelSeries Arctis Pro headset and watched various movies and TV shows. The audio output was clear, with plenty of bass and clear highs and loud enough as well after modifying the amplification, thanks to the Xamp build. We also ran multiple rounds of Quake Champions and the sound of the weapons was a joy to listen to and at the same time we were able to easily pinpoint where the enemy was coming from. "
