Review: Razer Kraken Pro V2 Gaming Headset
     Wed, Jan 18 2017 | 10:47A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we’ll be reviewing the Razer Kraken Pro V2 gaming headset which is successor to the Razer Kraken Pro gaming headset launched all the way back in 2012. While Razer has unveiled numerous editions of the Kraken headset lineup including the Kraken Forged Edition, the Kraken 7.1, and Kraken Chroma over the years, the original..."

ROCCAT Cross Multi-platform Over-ear Stereo Gaming Headset
     Tue, Jan 17 2017 | 11:53A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cross is a lightweight headset from ROCCAT, compatible with many devices thanks to its Stereo analog interface and features two separate cables: one for mobile devices with an in-line microphone, but also one which includes a boom microphone and two separate jack plugs. The 50mm Neodymium drivers make sure that deep bass can be rendered without distortions, while the mids and highs are well balanced, so Cross is well suited for watching movies or listening to music as well."

AMD Ryzen – What We Learned At CES 2017
     Fri, Jan 13 2017 | 8:35A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the days leading up to CES2017 we found ourselves most excited to see what AMD would be showing off with Ryzen CPU series. The anticipation for the new processor series for AMD is growing every day thanks to the marketing machine over at AMD continually showing it performing better than an Intel Core i7-6900K processor that costs over $1000. The thought of AMD releasing a processor that can compete with Skylake-E at any level a year ago, would have caused laughter in the room. Now, it looks like AMD has something that appears to come close to those levels of performance in applications like Blender and Handbrake...

Sennheiser GSP 350 Review
     Thu, Jan 12 2017 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sennheiser are top of their game and are a well renowned brand in regards to audio products. Since our last look at the awesome GAME ZERO headset, they have recently released a trio of headsets for gamers. As the 'mid-range' offerings, the GSP 300/350 are more similar in design, and are priced comparably to the likes of the Creative Sound BlasterX H5/H7, along with a respective feature set.

HyperX Cloud Stinger Headset Review
     Wed, Jan 11 2017 | 1:14P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In an increasingly saturated peripheral market, HyperX are hoping their new Cloud Stinger can become the ‘go-to’ headset if you are on a budget. Priced at £49.99, it comes in cheaper than the acclaimed Cloud and Cloud II headsets while keeping familiar features from those devices, including memory foam ear pads and a flexible boom mic. With its svelte, matte-black finish, the Cloud Stinger is also an attractive piece of kit – but how good is it? Let’s find out.

Edifier CineSound B3 Soundbar Review
     Sat, Jan 07 2017 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Edifier CineSound B3 soundbar is designed to sit under (or above) your TV and deliver noticeably improved audio playback – when compared to your TV’s inbuilt speakers. However, it also offers Bluetooth functionality, allowing you to connect a phone, tablet or what-have-you and use it for general music playback, too. Priced at £149.99 in the UK, it sits in the mid-range – above budget offerings but not quite at the same level as enthusiast-grade options.

EpicGear Thunderouz Gaming Headset
     Fri, Jan 06 2017 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up our review of the EpicGear Thunderouz Gaming Headset. This is a mid-price headset that offers quite a lot in the way of performance and features. While it isn't your day-to-day headset for commuting, it's designed with gamers in mind and it accomplishes that very nicely. For gaming and popular music, this headset is very solid and should be considered. Check our review for all the details.

Cougar IMMERSA Stereo Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Jan 04 2017 | 3:41P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cougar are not supporting 7.1 software audio for this model since it is a stereo version, but it comes with bass-tuned 40mm Neodymium drivers which are great in games, while needing a bit of tuning from the sound source in order to be pleasant for watching the rest of multimedia content. The product does also feature an in-line remote which is not intrusive and allows adjustment of the Volume on-the-fly, along with the microphone mute function. The supplied ear cups are large and provide comfort even longer gaming sessions, while the headband is automatically adjustable, as we have seen with other high-end headsets."

Every now and then a product comes along that is super handy, well-designed, well thought-out and actually looks good. The Firefly from Tunai Creative is just such a product and it simply and easily takes your wired audio system and quickly turns it into a Bluetooth-enabled wireless receiver.

HyperX CloudX Headset Review
     Sun, Jan 01 2017 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we usually tend to focus on gaming peripherals for the PC specifically, today we are taking a look at the Kingston HyperX CloudX Headset, a revision of the Cloud II designed with the Xbox One in mind. The HyperX Cloud II is widely considered to be one of the best ‘bang for buck’ gaming headsets around and now, Xbox gamers can also see what they’ve been missing. How does the CloudX hold up and what are the differences compared to the Cloud II? Let’s find out.

Stealth 350VR Multi-Format Gaming Headset Review
     Thu, Dec 29 2016 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There’s a huge range of headsets already on the market to choose from, but when it comes to VR gaming, many of the current headsets on the market are too big, or not ergonomically suitable to wear over the top of a VR headset, such as PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, or Vive, amongst a few others that are kicking around the market right now. The 350VR looks set to change that, with its ultra-comfortable, lightweight and low-profile design.

AfterShokz Bluez 2 Bone Conduction Bluetooth Headphones
     Mon, Dec 26 2016 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The thing that makes the AfterShokz stand out is the "Bone Conduction" technology. They Bluez 2 don't fit in your ears - or over your ears. They sit in front of your ears - on your cheekbones and then conduct the sound (vibrations) generated by the transducers inside your head - while leaving your ears open. The beauty is that you can not only listen to music, movies, audiobooks, podcasts and phone calls, you can also still hear the world around you...

Razer Kraken 7.1 V2 Surround Sound Gaming Headset Review
     Fri, Dec 23 2016 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer has recently updated their Kraken 7.1 series with the V2 version, which now sports larger 50mm custom tuned audio drivers, a digital retractable microphone with active noise-cancelling technology, an aluminum unibody frame for enhanced durability but also interchangeable ear cushions. The Razer Chroma feature allows synchronization of the LED lighting effects over all compatible peripherals, while the Synapse custom software permits the user to fine-tune the audio output on his/her liking."

Creative iRoar Go Review
     Wed, Dec 21 2016 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The iRoar Go addresses that, coming in 25% lighter and 40% smaller than the iRoar, it is the most portable Roar speaker yet. Adding to that, it has an IPX6 protection rating, meaning that it is sealed against dust, and has a waterproof rating to the equivalent of being jet-blasted from all angles for 3 minutes and should not show any signs of seepage, or failure. This means less concern on those poolside, or seaside trips, still be sure not drop it in the toilet or the ocean.

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.
