Creative Sound BlasterX Pro-Gaming Katana Desktop Soundbar Review
     Sun, Feb 26 2017 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Desktop audio is something worth caring about, from being able to hear the footsteps of your enemies in multiplayer shooters, to simply rocking out to your favourite songs while working, pretty much everyone has a need for good quality sound at their desktop. Creative have long been one of the biggest names in desktop audio, with many years of experience of creating fantastic speaker setups for everything from day-to-day office use, to movie fans, to gaming. Now they’re back again with one of their proudest creations, the Sound BlasterX Katana, a multi-channel gaming soundbar and subwoofer that’s set to give you the enthusiast grade audio processing, drivers and bone-shaking power you desire.

ASUS ROG Centurion 7.1 Headset Review
     Tue, Feb 21 2017 | 12:43P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few years, ASUS’ Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand has developed an excellent reputation thanks to the quality of its gaming products. Today we are looking at the new ROG Centurion 7.1 headset, a premium headset that does not come cheap given its £219.95 price. It does feature true 7.1 surround sound, though – and I mean proper surround sound, not a virtual solution. Let’s see if it is worth the money.

Posted by: STAFF
The MasterPulse PRO is USB powered and has an integrated soundcard to provide a virtual 7.1 surround experience as well as various preset EQ options. The frame itself has moved to the popular suspension style, which gives an interesting aesthetic appearance as well as being able to automatically adjust to the wearers head size.

The original On2 Studio Monitor Headphones by thinksound offered near-excellent audio reproduction. The brand new On2 Supra-Aural Studio Monitor Headphones further improves on that and also packs quite a few design changes.

Tesoro Tuned In-Ear Pro Headphones
     Mon, Feb 20 2017 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Face it, you need a pair of earbuds. Whether you are traveling, are on the go, or at the gym earbuds are the way to go. There are literally thousands of earbuds to choose from, but Tesoro has a new pair that really have great features that make them very convenient to use and they sound pretty good as well. I am talking about the new In-Ear Pro headphones which feature a metal earbud housing, 9.2mm dynamic drivers, a flat cable design, and much more. These headphone won’t break the bank either as they are priced at $34.99! Read on as we take a look…"

Damson Cisor Mini Portable Bluetooth Speaker
     Fri, Feb 17 2017 | 12:25P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The concept is simple. You have a powerful driver that, while not loud on its own, passes vibration on to whatever surface you stick it against, turning the larger surface into a large speaker. Obviously different surfaces vibrate at different rates, and thus will sound different. But when you find that proper surface (think solid wood or thicker metal), man oh man! You’ve got yourself a party...

Logitech G533 Wireless Headset @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Feb 17 2017 | 12:16P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As someone who prefers good audio quality but also can’t stand being attached to my desk with a wire, I have been on the hunt for the perfect wireless headset for a long time now. I’ve run into a few that I liked and even used for a while but they all seem to have their flaws that become obvious over time. The Logitech G930 for example. I tested it back in 2013 and it performed really well, but I ran into issues trying to use it at LAN events and later it even gave me issues in my office when running other wireless devices. Well, I’m back at it again, this time with Logitech’s G533. In a lot of ways, it is similar to the old G930 and Logitech was happy to tell me about the improvements in wireless performance and even improvements in gaming audio performance, but let’s take a closer look and see what it has going on.

Antlion Audio ModMic 5 @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Feb 16 2017 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last June I took a look at the ModMic from Antlion Audio and was impressed with its overall performance and how it opened up new options for quality audio for gamers. I had a few issues with it, but overall it came out with a recommended award. Well in December they introduced their new ModMic 5 and I’ve been playing around with it. Today I’m going to run through what it's all about and see if the new design is an improvement on the already popular design.

Epiphan AV.io 4K Review
     Wed, Feb 15 2017 | 11:28A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve been using the Epiphan AV.io 4K for over two months now and cannot praise it enough. Prior to this we were using the Razer Ripsaw which was another great capture device but sadly, lacked the 4K support. There are very few 4K capture solutions on the market at the consumer level and the AV.io 4K can quite easily therefore monopolize in this field.

Tunai CLIP - Wireless Headphone
     Sun, Feb 12 2017 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted our review of the Tunai Creative CLIP. This is labeled as a Wireless Headphone Amplifier, but think of it as a Bluetooth receiver for your headphones. It's a great way to take your favorite high-end headphones to the wireless world, and are a great solution to companies removing the headphone jack from mobile devices. They have some great strengths and a couple of other things worth noting. Check our review for all the details.

Creative Sound BlasterX Katana Review
     Sun, Feb 12 2017 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Soundbars are a popular choice among many people looking for a high quality speaker system that is also compact. As a sub-market, gamers end up having to wade through the many offerings out there in the wide world, yet may be unsure of what it is they want or need. So the 'gaming' soundbar became a thing. Our first outing with such a product was with the Razer Leviathan, and now we get to take a look at the Sound BlasterX Katana from Creative.

Razer ManO'War 7.1 Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, Feb 11 2017 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer has recently launched an updated version of the original wireless ManO’War headset, now compatible with more devices by featuring an analog stereo interface. Thanks to the included USB audio adapter, the product can deliver 7.1 virtual surround for a more immersive experience and while the chassis of the product looks about the same, it is even lighter than its wireless variant."

Sennheiser GSX 1000 audio amplifier review
     Wed, Feb 08 2017 | 4:06P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sennheiser is well known for producing high-end audio solutions – we have even reviewed some of them. However it can also help you upgrade what you already have with its audio amplifiers. Take the product I am looking at today, for example. The GSX 1000 amplifier is designed to not only boost your gaming volume and audio quality, but give you virtual 7.1 surround sound too. It comes with a number of interesting features, as well as a fancy volume control hub that sits neatly on your desktop. There is even some backlighting – though unlike a lot of peripherals out there at the moment, this one is not RGB compliant.

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.
