Creative Sound Blaster ZxR Sound Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Jan 12 2015 | 10:42A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Creative Labs is perhaps the most well-known sound card vendor amongst PC gamers. Their Sound Blaster product family includes the longest running series of consumer sound cards out there and has been talked about by gamers for years. Typically we come across remarks that praise the high quality audio and unmatched proprietary virtual surround processing of Sound Blaster card, but hit-or-miss driver stability which fortunately we didn?t experience. Recently, we?ve gotten the opportunity to review the entire Sound Blaster Z-series, Creative?s most recent generation of desktop cards, to share if they?re right for you. This review focuses on the flagship Sound Blaster ZxR."

Creative SoundBlaster E1
     Sun, Jan 11 2015 | 12:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Creative SoundBlaster E1 is a portable AMP and a standalone DAC. This is the first of its kind in Creative’s portfolio. Creative already boasts plenty of DACs in its arsenal – Both internal and external. What makes this DAC different from all the others is that it doubles up as a portable headphone amp as well. With 25 hours of claimed battery life it makes it very versatile as a headphone amp and its small size is an added bonus. Another bonus is that it supports two headphone outs at the same time.

TDK A12 TREK Micro Wireless Speaker Review
     Sat, Jan 10 2015 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the things i love about Greece and Attica in particular is that we hundreds of thousands of visitors each year and thanks to some of them i always seem to come in contact with electronic devices which i may have missed otherwise. So a few nights back while i was walking at the beach (trying to cool down after spending several hours performing tests on HDDs and SSDs) a guy ran past me carrying a large backpack on which he had a tiny portable wireless speaker secured with the help of a carabiner. That speaker offered very little in terms of volume and audio quality but i did like it’s very tiny size (and in part the carabiner feature) and so i was quite glad to receive an email by TDK a couple of days later asking me if I’d like to test their latest A12 TREK Micro Wireless Speaker which aside the tiny size it also shares one more similarity with that speaker, it makes use of a carabiner.

Arctic P402 Lightweight Dynamic Headphones Review
     Tue, Jan 06 2015 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Up for review today I have a set of headphones from Arctic called the P402 which are what you might call a budget set of headphones as they are priced at about $15 on Amazon right now. For that price you might not expect much honestly but I was pleasantly surprised by these as they sound pretty good. The P402 headphones also have a microphone in-line so you can even make or receive phone calls while you’re using them with your phone. Read on to learn more... "

Edifier Tick Tock Bluetooth Review
     Sat, Jan 03 2015 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Do not be deceived by the mousy look of the retro Edifier Tick Tock Bluetooth retro alarm clock; thanks to the dual drivers, it is able to produce decent quality sound without distortions and at pretty high volumes. The bass is a little on the low side which is perfectly understandable but considering the overall size of the device, we cannot consider this as a negative point.

CM Storm Resonar in-ear gaming earphone Review
     Thu, Jan 01 2015 | 12:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CoolerMaster renowned for their cooling products have also been launching products for the gaming audio market. Their headsets – CM Sonuz, CM Pulse-R and CM Sirius have all received positive reviews over here. Now we have a look at the newest gaming IEM – The CM Storm Resonar. The Resonar has a unique feature which they call the ‘Bass FX’ switch. The bass switch claims to be able to tune the bass for a heavier or flatter response which is done by adjusting the position of the magnet which impacts the lower end frequencies. This enables you to do a hardware level tweak of the sound which is something new at this end of the earphone market. Other than that the CM Storm Resonar has a built-in microphone which works well and flat cable which is a tangle free wire. CM needs to be given brownie points for launching a product that is a bit different in the already overcrowded In-ear monitor market.

Testing the £4,254 Abyss 1266 Headphones
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 1:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you were given the task of creating the world’s best headphones how would you do it? American cable experts JPS Labs proposed the same question but took it a stage further by taking the lofty challenge head on. Targeting the wealthy audiophile audience, money was firmly a secondary factor for consideration. After many years of research and development their planar magnetic Abyss 1266 headphones are the end result. Just be sure to check your bank balance beforehand, because the price of admission is a heart stopping £4,254 inc vat.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
