ASUS Cerberus V2 Review
     Thu, May 11 2017 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS have addressed these issues, and implemented them in the Cerberus V2. Unlike the original Cerberus headset, it now features a bouncy steel frame, a stitched headband for additional protection, as well as improved ear cushions that provide 30% extra coverage for improved comfort and sound isolation. ASUS have also have changed the drivers, rather than shipping with the unnecessarily large 60mm drivers, they have implemented exclusive 53mm ASUS Essence drivers. This means that there is more space inside the earcup, allowing the drivers to deliver a powerful and rich sound.

Sound BlasterX Katana @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, May 06 2017 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For living rooms, it used to be a big push for multi-speaker configurations with a big receiver. For some people, this is still the goal, especially for surround sound. But recently there has been a trend where people have been moving to soundbars. They take up a lot less space while still being an audio improvement over your TVs speakers and they better fit with today’s ultra-thin TVs. There are some downsides though and performance can be a little limited. Well, Sound Blaster came out with the Sound BlasterX Katana and they don’t even like to put it in the same category as a traditional sound bar. They call it an Under Monitor Audio System aka a UMAS. This is because beyond having speakers under your monitor it has a built-in 224 bit DAC, a Dolby Digital 5.1 Decoder, and 5 drivers all with their own amps. With my wife getting a new desk, we started to look at her options and the Katana from Sound Blaster looked to be a good fit to keep the desktop footprint low by using unused space under her monitors. So today I’m going to check the Katana’s out and see just how they perform.

Roccat Cross Gaming Headset
     Wed, May 03 2017 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Roccat Cross is a comfortable and lovely sounding gaming headset with an interesting twist. You can remove its boom microphone and attach a secondary cable equipped with an in-line microphone, plug it into your smartphone, and use it as a mobile headset. It holds its own in both of those scenarios, which fully justifies its $70 price and then some.

Game Max Sapphire RGB Case Review
     Sat, Apr 29 2017 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently we have reviewed a couple of cases from Game Max, and while they both scored very well, they were definitely aimed at users on a budget. Today, we are seeing what Game Max can offer those looking for a more luxurious case, as the Sapphire RGB is definitely luxurious – it features no less than 3 tempered glass side panels, and not ordinary tempered glass either. The Game Max Sapphire’s highlight feature (quite literally) is its use of mirror-finish tempered glass.
