iClever Bluetooth Wireless Speaker Review
     Fri, Nov 27 2015 | 4:32P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you’re anything like us, you most likely haven’t gotten all of your Christmas shopping done yet, (or perhaps not even started it yet). Fortunately, for people like us, there is still ample time to search for that great tech savvy gift that will light up someone’s holiday season. Coincidentally enough, the iClever Bluetooth Wireless Speaker is definitely one such device that fits the bill. Small and compact enough to perfectly fit in a stocking yet powerful and robust enough to stand alone under the Christmas tree, this Bluetooth speaker is certainly one gift you won’t want to pass up.

FSL Xylem Wood Earphones Review @ Technogog
     Fri, Nov 20 2015 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Up for review today I’ve got a pair of earphones from FSL or Future Sound Labs and these are called the Xylem and what makes makes these a bit special is the fact that they’re made of wood. The headphones are inexpensive and they do have an in-line remote control for controlling media and phone calls. For the price they aren’t bad, but they’re not perfect. Read on to learn more… "

Turtle Beach Ear Force PX24 Multi-Format Gaming Headset Review
     Fri, Nov 20 2015 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest headset from Turtle Beach is here at last! The market may be packed with brands and products right now, but from a consumer perspective, it never hurts to have more choice. The PX24 is certainly an appealing product, not only because it comes from a well-known brand name, but because it promises exceptional value for money that simply cannot be ignored.

Corsair VOID Stereo Gaming Headset Review
     Thu, Nov 19 2015 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the VOID Stereo is compatible with a wide selection of devices which can output analog audio signal, the quality of the sound is also often influenced by the source. We have connected the headset to our trusty Sound Blaster ZxR sound card and watched some movies, several YouTube clips but also some of the latest TV Shows like Gotham, Grimm, The Walking Dead and so on. The main conclusion is that with the right sound card settings and enhancements, the Stereo is going to sound pretty good but this is also thanks to the 50mm-large Neodymium drivers it incorporates that are also used on the more expensive models. Talking about the microphone, if the sound card from our setup does not add additional noise to the signal as in our test system, it will sound crystal clear and basically produce the same results as with the VOID Wireless. During our Skype test calls for several hours, the person on the other end of the line confirmed that we were being heard just fine.

Ozone Blast 4HX PC Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Nov 18 2015 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ozone are one of the most popular brands in PC gaming, offering a wide range of peripherals that have proven very popular with eSports gamers around the world. Ranging from mechanical keyboards to headsets, such as the Blast 4HX which we’ll be taking a look at today, they’ve got some very exciting hardware and I’m eager to see what their latest can do.

ThermalTake Cronos Go Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Nov 18 2015 | 11:51A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As time moves forward, it seems there is a cycle in the size of devices and their accessories. First they get smaller and smaller and then for some reason, we as consumers want the devices to get larger. When it comes to taking music with us on the go, I find that most ear bud style headsets miss the mark …

Sennheiser Momentum M2 IEi In-Ear Headset Review (iOS)
     Tue, Nov 17 2015 | 4:08P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Searching out the right set of in-ear headphones can be repetitive and expensive for music lovers. Finding the right fit is close to impossible and when found, the sound is inevitably not there. Or…just when you like the sound, quality is questionable, the buds don’t feel right with any time in-ear or, well yes, they just fall out. My search for ‘the perfect buds’ centers on a fit that provides the comfort needed for many 10-plus hour flights, sound that provides as much of a balance as it does a warmth, and also, I don’t want the mix of music and the outside world when I am listening. My music is my escape, as brief as it may be. Sennheiser seems to have heard my call in their build of the Momentum M2 IEi In-ear Headphones.

CM Storm Pitch Pro In-ear Headset
     Tue, Nov 17 2015 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CM Storm's newest in-ear is a refined version of the original Pitch they launched a while ago. The bundle has been updated, and the price has stayed the same. We take it for a spin to see how it compares to other budget friendly offerings.

G.SKILL Ripjaws SV710 Virtual 7.1 Headset
     Mon, Nov 16 2015 | 3:20P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Quality seems to be put into most of the design, but there are a few flaws. The most fatal flaw is the suspension pad. Being designed so high and not adjustable makes it uncomfortable for most people to wear these as they will want to slide down. This is a fatal flaw that potentially ruins an otherwise decent headset. If they sit right they are very comfortable, but if they slide down due to lack of contact with the suspension pad they get uncomfortable fast. While the suspension pad is designed for larger heads the ear cups are not so oversized. The audio controller can potentially reach the floor – it easily did in my case even with the chair at its maximum height. There are no clips or any other means to attach the controller to anything so it is very easy to lose it, or accidentally step on it and turn the volume up. This leads into the next issue, not necessarily a con: the maximum volume is insanely high on these headsets. Using the plus and minus buttons causes a huge jump (2% jumps in Windows volume level is like low-medium-high in real life, there is no fine adjustment). I could put ear plugs in and it was very loud at 100% -- this isn't necessarily a con as it can be nice to have the power to drown out exterior noises but would it be too much to have a setting to lower the sound levels?”

iClever IC-BTH02 Bluetooth Headphones Review
     Wed, Nov 11 2015 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are a frequent gym goer, more than likely you enjoy the fresh sound of tunes to workout to. What can be the most frustrating part of using headphones is the that cord that gets entangled in every treadmill or weight stack. Thanks to iClever, they have given you an opportunity to forget those awkward moments with he IC-BTH02 wireless bluetooth headphones.

Noontec ZORO II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones Review
     Tue, Nov 10 2015 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those of you that are not familiar with Noontec, they were founded in Australia in 2002 with a focus on fashion Hi-Fi headphones, HD media players, internet TV BOX and mobile accessories. Over the last few years they have released several headsets that balance the latest styles with a price point that is competitive in the market. While not typically associated with audiophile sound quality, their ZORO and Hammo lines of headphones have received pretty good reviews over the last several years. When they offered to send us their latest second generation Zoro II on ear Bluetooth 4.0 wireless headphones we were interested to see how they compared to other products in this category.

AYL SoundFit Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker Review @ Technogog
     Tue, Nov 10 2015 | 11:38A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I’ve got another Bluetooth speaker from a company called Accessorize Your Life or AYL and this speaker is very rugged and IPX5 certified for water resistance which means you could take it in the shower with you if you wanted to. The speaker has the common controls for play/pause and volume and skip tracks and it worked fine with my Galaxy S6 phone but what’s most important is the sound, and it’s decent overall. Read on to learn more.. "

Audiofly AF56m In-Ear Headphones Review
     Sun, Nov 08 2015 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Not that long ago we took at a look at Audiofly’s AF78 In-Ear headphones and after our evaluation they were the best in-ear headphones we had ever used! Moving down the product stack today we have the AF56m’s, which sits in the mid-range of Audiofly’s offerings. Audiofly says this about the AF56m’s, “Packing our largest in-ear driver, the AF56 delivers uncompromising sound, pumping out astonishing clarity over the whole spectrum with a rich and detailed bottom end… all with a nostalgic smirk”. If these are anything like the AF78’s we have another great set of headphones from Audiofly. These are the “m” version of the headphones meaning they have an in-line microphone that will allow you to take calls. Let’s take a look and see if we have another winner from Audiofly!"

Tt eSports Cronos AD Review
     Sun, Nov 08 2015 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is our third outing with the Tt eSports Cronos, which so far as a product seem to be providing split decisions. The original Cronos made a good impression yet the Boosted Bass Edition never really made any real improvements. Well today we take a look at the most dramatic changes the Cronos has seen, including a redesigned headband, moving to a suspension design while keeping the same, soft lycra cushioning as previously seen. The microphone is now retractable rather than the huge boom seen on the previous Cronos headsets and the 40mm drivers are tuned for a better bass experience.

Patriot Viper V360 Headset Review: A Promising Start
     Sat, Nov 07 2015 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot is known for its memory and mobile products, and has just recently started selling peripherals. It might seem like an unusual jump, but their new headset proves that Patriot is prepared to expand and succeed in this new market. Patriot's initial headset offering is the Viper V360, a virtual 7.1 capable gaming peripheral that plugs in via USB. The V360 headset is equipped with....
