Tt eSPORTS Shock 3D 7.1 Gaming Headset Review
     Tue, Sep 29 2015 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unlike most review samples that reach our lab on a daily basis gaming peripherals require quite a bit of time to test and so we always wait until we have more than just 2 or 3 here before we start testing since usually that saves us a good amount of time. Of course the most ideal and obvious way for someone to test gaming peripherals is by playing games and so we also need to have a brand new game title in our hands in order to do that. Luckily we haven't finished Batman Arkham Knight yet (no free time to play unfortunately) and we also just started to play the brand new World Of Warships naval action MMO (by our friends over at Wargaming.net creators of World Of Tanks and World Of Airplanes) so since we have everything covered today we're going to take a thorough look at one of the latest gaming peripherals released by Tt eSPORTS the Shock 3D 7.1 headset.

Intel Core i7-6700K "Skylake" LGA 1151 Processor Reviewed
     Mon, Sep 28 2015 | 1:53P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Intel Core i7-6700K Skylake processor boasts the fastest quad core frequencies and architectural design to date especially in terms of frequencies, power consumption, and finally introduces DDR4 memory support to the mass market. It also requires a Z170 motherboard using a new LGA 1151 socket and DDR4 memory to operate (with SOME exceptions).

Cutebeat BT Vibration Speaker Review
     Sun, Sep 27 2015 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we take a look at the Cowin CuteBeat BT Vibration speaker which features ‘Resonance Technology’. This speaker will let you play music from various external sources using either a 3.5mm audio cable or by streaming directly to the unit via Bluetooth. It will ‘vibrate sound’ from any hard surface and official ratings measure the sound output at 12W. A rechargeable battery means you can take music with you, anywhere you decide to go. But is it any good?

V-MODA's renowned Crossfade M-100 is now available with custom shields. They even printed our website logo on it. And what is a review without a comparison to the venerable V-MODA XS?

Tesoro Kuven Pro Review
     Thu, Sep 17 2015 | 12:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Headsets with multichannel audio rendering are popular with many people for various reasons. This could be due to their promise of heightened spatial awareness/directional audio or perhaps due to various other reasons which can all be added to the list in the good quality stereo headset VS real surround headset debate, but the end game is, there is a market for them. So it's not surprising to see various manufacturers offering a 'real 5.1 surround headset' as part of their range. This is what it seems Tesoro have done, by taking their Kuven v7.1, which is a solid stereo headset, and offer it as a real 5.1 surround alternative in the form of the Kuven Pro.

JBL Synchros E50 BT Bluetooth Around-Ear Headphones Review
     Mon, Sep 14 2015 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How many of you knew that audio quality is not the very first thing people check when out to buy a new pair of headphones? Well as it turns out according to official statistics people care most about design, price and brand name than they do about audio quality and although it's understandable that not many people can afford to get a expensive pair of headphones (that didn't really come as a surprise to any of us) still not everyone is aware that SONY and Philips although both very good brands are not the only leading brand names in that particular market. Other manufacturers like JBL have been around for ages (JBL in particular was established in 1946) and have won the hearts of not only music professionals and audiophiles but also casual consumers all across the globe. Today we're taking a look at one of the last and highest end Bluetooth wireless headphones released by JBL the Synchros E50 BT.

Sennheiser G4ME ONE Headset Review
     Sat, Sep 12 2015 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following should sound familiar - you are driving through the virtual enemy ground with your M1A2 Abrams Battletank, firing your 120mm cannon, when suddenly the door opens and your girlfriend or mother says friendly, that you please turn down the volume of your 1000 watt 5.1 surround station. For those poor Gamer souls we have the Sennheiser G4ME ONE Headset in our test lab today.

Cooler Master Pitch Pro Earphones Review
     Fri, Sep 11 2015 | 12:30P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in 2013, Cooler Master launched the CM Storm Pitch gaming ear buds and at the time, they were positively received, we even gave them our ‘WORTH BUYING’ award. Now here we are two years later with Cooler Master launching the revamped CM Storm Pitch Pro ear buds. Are they worth a purchase? Let’s find out…

Olixar SoundPear Duo Wireless Bluetooth Speaker System Review
     Thu, Sep 10 2015 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SoundPear Duo bluetooth speaker system from Olixar harnesses the power of two wireless bluetooth speakers to provide true stereo sound. The speaker system has been receiving great reviews from all who’ve tested them out, and with the speakers also boasting powerful 1.75-inch drivers with built-in subwoofers and portability we’re not surprised by the excellent reviews.

SteelSeries Siberia X300 Gaming Headset Review
     Tue, Sep 08 2015 | 5:12P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At E3 2015, we noticed a number of third-party headset adapters for the original Xbox One controller including the one bundled with the SteelSeries Siberia X300 we are reviewing. Microsoft probably won't state why it chose to not integrate the headset jack directly on the controller from the beginning though we can expect pressure from the competition as a factor for the refreshed controller. After all, the $20 official adapter as a separate addon was just another reason to go for the PlayStation 4...

Ozone Onda Pro X-Surround Pro Gaming Headset Review
     Sun, Sep 06 2015 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I get to take the latest headset from gaming peripheral experts Ozone, the Onda Pro X-Surround Pro Gaming Headset. It’s been a long time since I reviewed an Ozone headset, in fact the only Ozone headset I’ve reviewed prior to this one would be my first ever review here at eTeknix around two years ago, which was the Ozone Onda 3HX, so it will be interesting to see how much Ozone have changed in that time. eSports is a big industry these days, it doesn’t matter if you’re competing in a pro team and big events, or just working your way up the ladder by playing games at home, it never hurts to have a range of good peripherals at your disposal. A new headset might not make you world #1, but being able to hear everything on the battlefield, or having clear chat audio with your team can make a big difference. Targeted at the pro gaming market the new Onda Pro is packed full of features such as DSP to help improve / tweak audio performance , a detachable omni directional microphone, powerful drivers, comfortable padding and support for both PlayStation 4 and PC. Pro or not, it’s sub £70 price tag also makes it reasonably affordable too, so it does have a lot of appeal to a wider gaming audience.

Silverstone SST-EB03 Desktop Headphone Amp & SST-EB01-E DAC Review
     Sat, Sep 05 2015 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to kicking back and enjoying your favourite albums, having a great set of speakers or a set of high-end headphones can really make or break the experience. Of course for many people out there, the £20 set of headphones they got from their local electronics store will be more than enough, offering them many hours of happiness when needed, but there are certain people, myself included, that demand a lot more from their audio equipment. While some like to use the term Audiophile to describe those who love premium grade sound components, I don’t think you have to take it that seriously just to want the best quality from your music, much in the same way you don’t have to be a complete TV nerd just to want a quality HDTV. Desktop PC audio has certainly improved over the last few years, many motherboard manufacturers are including higher quality audio components directly onto their motherboards; sure there are some lovely sound cards out there, but with GPU’s often dominating the PCIe slots in our systems, it’s getting difficult to find the room for a large sound card. The devices we’re looking at today offer two solutions to improve your audio, the first would be the EB01E, a powerful XMOS XS1 TQ128 DAC which supports Asynchronous USB 24bit / 192 kHz audio. If all of that was nonsense to you, let me put this as simple as possible; you connect the EB01-E to your PC via a digital connection (USB, Optical or Coaxial) and then connect your speakers to the EB01-E and it will provide you with improved audio quality.
