Noontec ZORO II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones Review
     Tue, Nov 10 2015 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those of you that are not familiar with Noontec, they were founded in Australia in 2002 with a focus on fashion Hi-Fi headphones, HD media players, internet TV BOX and mobile accessories. Over the last few years they have released several headsets that balance the latest styles with a price point that is competitive in the market. While not typically associated with audiophile sound quality, their ZORO and Hammo lines of headphones have received pretty good reviews over the last several years. When they offered to send us their latest second generation Zoro II on ear Bluetooth 4.0 wireless headphones we were interested to see how they compared to other products in this category.

AYL SoundFit Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker Review @ Technogog
     Tue, Nov 10 2015 | 11:38A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I’ve got another Bluetooth speaker from a company called Accessorize Your Life or AYL and this speaker is very rugged and IPX5 certified for water resistance which means you could take it in the shower with you if you wanted to. The speaker has the common controls for play/pause and volume and skip tracks and it worked fine with my Galaxy S6 phone but what’s most important is the sound, and it’s decent overall. Read on to learn more.. "

Audiofly AF56m In-Ear Headphones Review
     Sun, Nov 08 2015 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Not that long ago we took at a look at Audiofly’s AF78 In-Ear headphones and after our evaluation they were the best in-ear headphones we had ever used! Moving down the product stack today we have the AF56m’s, which sits in the mid-range of Audiofly’s offerings. Audiofly says this about the AF56m’s, “Packing our largest in-ear driver, the AF56 delivers uncompromising sound, pumping out astonishing clarity over the whole spectrum with a rich and detailed bottom end… all with a nostalgic smirk”. If these are anything like the AF78’s we have another great set of headphones from Audiofly. These are the “m” version of the headphones meaning they have an in-line microphone that will allow you to take calls. Let’s take a look and see if we have another winner from Audiofly!"

Tt eSports Cronos AD Review
     Sun, Nov 08 2015 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is our third outing with the Tt eSports Cronos, which so far as a product seem to be providing split decisions. The original Cronos made a good impression yet the Boosted Bass Edition never really made any real improvements. Well today we take a look at the most dramatic changes the Cronos has seen, including a redesigned headband, moving to a suspension design while keeping the same, soft lycra cushioning as previously seen. The microphone is now retractable rather than the huge boom seen on the previous Cronos headsets and the 40mm drivers are tuned for a better bass experience.

Patriot Viper V360 Headset Review: A Promising Start
     Sat, Nov 07 2015 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot is known for its memory and mobile products, and has just recently started selling peripherals. It might seem like an unusual jump, but their new headset proves that Patriot is prepared to expand and succeed in this new market. Patriot's initial headset offering is the Viper V360, a virtual 7.1 capable gaming peripheral that plugs in via USB. The V360 headset is equipped with....

Inateck Mercury Box wireless Bluetooth speaker
     Fri, Nov 06 2015 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It can prove difficult getting all the features you want in a Bluetooth speaker while keeping it affordable, but that is what Inateck has attempted to do with its Mercury Box. Made of anodized aluminium, this compact wireless speaker is certified IPX5 waterproof, packs two strong five watt drivers into its casing and has a battery life that is said to last up to 15 hours on a full charge. And it claims to do all this for as little as £40.

Audiofly AF-78 In-Ear Headphones
     Thu, Nov 05 2015 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"To me in-ear headphones or earbuds are extremely important. Maybe I am different than most of you but when I’m working on the go on my laptop, listening to music on my iPhone, or playing a game on my tablet, in-ear headphones are my escape from the real world. Many people think all in-ear headphones are the same, but if you’ve had the chance to experience any higher-end models you know that is not true. I also have to say after experiencing very good in-ear headphones the ones that come with are portable devices don’t cut it. I’ve actually been using the same pair of in-ear headphones since 2011! Today I will be taking a look at Audiofly’s AF-78 Premium In-Ear Headphones. These are Audiofly’s most expensive in-ear headphones and should be great competition for my 4-year old go-to pair! Let’s get started!"

Sound Blaster X7 and E-MU XM7 bookshelf speakers
     Wed, Nov 04 2015 | 12:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like most of you PC and along with it my office is almost like a living being, slowly evolving. Every year or two I’m changing out my video cards, my motherboard, even keyboards and mice. It’s weird though, looking back there are only a few things that seem to be very consistent, my desk and for the most part my speakers. Well when I was replacing my desk last fall I decided that I wanted to move from the Corsair SP2500’s to something new. Now keep in mind, the Corsairs sounded good as did the Klipsch’s that I have before that. So to continue to evolve I wanted to go a new direction. Well the timing was good as Creative Labs had just recently introduced their X7 and more recently their E-MU XM7 bookshelf speakers. I loved the X5 when I covered it and for a long time I even used it over the onboard on my PC but the X7 looked to be a much more fitting permanent option. Well I’ve been testing both the X7 and the XM7 speakers for a while now and we can finally sit down and go over what they are and how well they performed.

Element Gaming Neon 300 PC Gaming Headset Review
     Mon, Nov 02 2015 | 1:14P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Element Gaming is something of a newcomer to the component market, but having taken a look at a range of Element Gaming products over the last few months, I’m certain they’re off to a great start. Their Hyperion and Atomic chassis’, as well as their Berrilyum mechanical keyboard, all won awards from us here at eTeknix and seem to have been well received by the PC community in general. Today, we kick things off with a look at one of the latest Element Gaming headsets, the Neon 300, but can it meet the same standards as the previous products we’ve tested?

HiFiMAN HE-400S Planar Magnetic Headphones
     Sat, Oct 31 2015 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HiFiMAN's latest value-oriented headphone is dubbed the HE-400S. Like other headphones in the 400-range, it features a planar magnetic driver and HiFiMAN's newest headband solution. The driver has been tweaked to a point where just about any source out there will power these just fine!

Sound Blaster E5 @ Bjorn3d.com
     Sat, Oct 31 2015 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

ASUS Strix RAID Pro 7.1 PCI-E Sound Card
     Fri, Oct 30 2015 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you take audio seriously then the onboard processing on many motherboards simply wont deliver an immersive enough experience. Today we look at the mid range solution in the new range from ASUS – dubbed the Strix RAID Pro. This card has full support for 7.1 surround sound. Asus have adopted an ‘audiophile grade DAC’ and a 600 ohm headphone amplifier to enhance audio reproduction through your favourite cans.

Corsair Void 3.5mm Stereo Gaming Headset Review
     Fri, Oct 30 2015 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair VOID gaming headset range is here at last and while we’ve already taken a look at the flagship headset in this range, the Corsair Void Dolby 7.1 Wireless, today we’re taking a look at the other end of the spectrum, the Void Stereo 3.5mm. The Wireless absolutely blew me away, it’s by far one of the best headsets we’ve ever tested and the price was a real surprise, coming in at under £100. The wired stereo model is a fair bit cheaper though, coming in at around £60 from most major retailers, so it’s certainly going to appeal to a wider audience and the 3.5mm connector means it’s also going to be universally compatible with a huge range of audio devices, including mobile.
