CM Storm Sirus-C 2.2 PC & PlayStation 4 Gaming Headset
     Mon, Jun 15 2015 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CM Storm, the gaming division of legendary manufacturer Cooler Master is back once again with the release of their Sirus-C 2.2 gaming headset. The Sirus has long been a popular product of CM Storm, but this new model looks to kick things up a notch with improved performance and specifications. Not only is the headset compatible with PC, but also PlayStation 4, making it a tempting purchase for those who love to game on both PC and the latest Sony console. Priced at a little over £70 from most major online retailers, the Sirus-C isn’t overly expensive, especially given the brand name and the multi format support, so it will be interesting to see how it stacks up to the competition. Especially when you can pick up something like the Turtle Beach PX3 and the MadCatz Tritton Pro+ for around the same money. However, the Sirus-C does have some impressive specifications behind it that should give it a leading edge, most importantly being the 2.2 drives, that’s two drivers in stereo configuration and two sub woofers to give your sound extra depth and low end grunt, something that will no doubt appeal to a gaming audience.

Posted by: STAFF
" What differentiates the Jabra Stealth from other models is its compact size, thus the Stealth moniker. It has up to six hours of talk time with a standby time of 240 hours. Not too shabby for such a small headset."

Razer Leviathan 5.1 Channel Surround Sound Bar Review
     Thu, Jun 04 2015 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having used 5.1/7.1 Dolby Surround/Digital Sound systems since the late 90's i know that regular stereo and even 3D virtual surround sound systems can't even hold a candle against them. Still not everyone has enough space to place 6 or 8 speakers (5.1/7.1) so it didn't take that long for manufacturers to come up with the ideal compromise between size and performance. We are of course talking about sound bars and although the concept is not really new and they can't really compete with complete 5.1/7.1 surround sound systems still they offer a good value for people looking to seriously upgrade the sound coming from their TV screens without sacrificing much space in the process. Razer is mostly popular amongst users for their gaming mouse, keyboards and headsets but what many may not know is that they've recently ventured in other areas of the market such as virtual reality, portable computing, TV players and even home theater audio systems. One of these new products is the Leviathan 5.1 Channel Surround Sound Bar which as the title of this review clearly states is with us today.

Posted by: STAFF
When a headset has ‘A Higher Level of Listening’ boasted on the front of the box, it sparks interest immediately. What makes this headset, in comparison to the rest, so much better than that of the any other headset? Or at least, how does it provide a higher level of listening? While some may find this to be a simple marketing tactic, others (including ourselves) are dying to know what makes the Grado Prestige Series SR80e so much better than the rest. After undergoing a thorough and rugged series of tests, we have an answer. Let’s find out!
