LUXA2 GroovyW Bluetooth Speaker & Wireless Charging Station Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Aug 18 2014 | 12:05P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Bluetooth wireless speakers have becoming extremely popular over the past couple of years. They can be used with multiple devices and are powerful enough to provide music for an entire room. They are also small enough that you can easily throw them in your backpack or laptop bag. LUXA2 has a new Bluetooth speaker in their GroovyW, but it is not your ordinary Bluetooth speaker. It comes with a removable wireless / wired charging station giving you 4000mAh of extra power for your portable device. The GroovyW also supports NFC for pairing, has touch panel controls, a microphone to take calls and comes with a companion App for both iOS and Android."

Sennheiser HD-8 DJ Headphone Review
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 12:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Perhaps one of the candidates for the most popular headphones of all time could be the Sennheiser HD-25's which were first released in 1988 and can still be found today, although in a more contemporary design. Many would claim these to be the most likely runaway winner and, if popularity alone through time is any indication, we would have to agree. Sennheiser has now released the successor to the HD-25 in the HD-8 DJ and, if you are a media professional who spends hours on end with a set of headphones on your head, these definitely merit a close look. A word to the wise though, the HD-8 DJs forge new ideas on just what professional headphones should be, no doubt the years of advise provided DJ’s and studio professionals.

Bayan Audio Soundbook X3 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Review
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Who is Bayan Audio? Back in 2011, an UK-based company started that had the sole intent of creating high quality products that produce phenomenal sound out of natural materials, that you can take with you wherever you may go. You may recognize them from a previous report we did a few weeks back, when we took a look at the Bayan Audio Soundbook Wireless Bluetooth Speaker. Today, we have the privilege of taking a bigger and better look at the Bayan Audio Soundbook X3, the big brother to the previously reported Soundbook. One thing to keep in mind before we dig into the X3, is that we are looking at a wireless bluetooth speaker. More often then not, you ‘get what you pay for’ when it comes to wireless bluetooth speakers. The cheaper wireless speakers are typically comprised of a lower grade material, which will further inhibit the performance of the speaker, but the opposite also remains true. What really impresses us is when a company creates a product that is not only of high quality, but doesn’t break your bank as well.

JBL Synchros S700 Headphones Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 1:56A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its been a long time since Ive been treated to a real nice set of cans, my last pair being from House of Marley are nice enough and suit my style but have some limitations in the sound department. JBL are well known for producing quality sound gear so the Synchros S700 were a natural progression for me in search of the ultimate headphones. They are available in both black and white, Im glad I got the one to match perfectly my Galaxy S4 which Ill be using for most of my listening. I wanted something that not only sounded amazing, they looked cool too. But I didnt want what everyone else had. At around $300 they wont break the bank either. "

Luxa2 GroovyT Magic Boom Box - BCCHardware
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 3:53P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GroovyT possesses supernatural powers that can amaze and leave you in audio awe. That, at least is what the marketing department for Luxa2 claims. The reality is a little bit different. While the setup and connecting the device to your phone is simple, the audio quality can be a little off. There is an Android App that helps you tune your phone so that the sound is much better than your stock music player may produce. For the GroovyT, this App is basically an equalizer that will let you turn down your bass..."

Asus GTX 760 Striker Platinum
     Tue, Aug 12 2014 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just as soon as I thought all of the video card introductions from the Nvidia 700 series cards were over Asus tossed out another one. This time it was something a little special, the Striker. The Striker is a GTX 760 but they went a little above and beyond from their standard cards. This is actually a little bit of an unusual launch, typically special cards are limited to the highest end GPUs (like this Mars and Poseidon models), but they did something special with that GPU that more people can afford. Now lets dig in and see how the Striker holds up against the competition.

Xtreme Sound XS71HDU
     Mon, Aug 11 2014 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We love sound cards here at TR, but they don't fit in every kind of PC. Diamond's Xtreme Sound XS71HDU serves up the same kinds of features in a tiny USB package suitable for mini-PCs and ultrabooks. We took it for a spin to see if it's as good as it looks.

Kingston HyperX Cloud Pro Gaming Headset (KHX-H3CL/WR) Review | HardwareHeaven.com

Posted by: STAFF
Kingston have been known for some time now as a manufacturer of high performance memory and with their HyperX brand have added some stylish modules to their range. In more recent times we have seen them branch out into SSDs and now they are taking another leap, this time with the release of a headset. The HyperX Cloud."

Gamdias Aegis gaming set review
     Wed, Jul 30 2014 | 12:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is rare that I get a product through the post to review and have to spend a good few minutes figuring out just what it is. That is what happened this week though when I got my first look at the Gamdias Aegis gaming set. It turns out that it is a USB hub and headset stand that sticks on to the side of your monitor. Bizarre? Perhaps. Unique? Certainly.

Superlux HD668B Headphones Review
     Wed, Jul 30 2014 | 12:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Superlux is a Taiwanese manufacturer of audio components that targets the “affordable market”. Their headphones have slowly entered the market during the past years and they have made quiet a hype in various enthusiast forums and gaming communities. At first, we were quite skeptical about the relatively unknown company as it is the first time we ever heard from them, and at such a low price, the Superlux HD 668B Headphones are the most affordable set of headphones that Benchmark Reviews has ever taken a close look at.

SB Inferno Gaming Headset @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Jul 28 2014 | 10:36A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few years ago, we used to see the fatal1ty headsets all over the place at events. They were without a doubt the best low budget gaming headset on the market. They performed well and took a beating without falling apart. Even now, it is still one of the highest rated headsets on Newegg. Here we are seven years later and Creative is introducing the SB Inferno, the spiritual successor to the Fatal1ty Gaming Headset. Its amazing how much has changed in seven years, I cant wait to see how the SB Inferno compares to todays latest and greatest in gaming audio."

Creative Sound Blaster ZxR Versus Onboard Audio
     Fri, Jul 25 2014 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we're looking at the Sound Blaster ZxR, Creative's flagship audio solution for PC power users. It's also one of three available cards in Creative's ultra high-performance Z-Series of sound cards, the ZxR being the top-end solution. It boasts a signal-to-noise (SNR) of 124dB that Creative claims is 89.1 times better than your motherboard's integrated audio solution. It also features a built-in headphone amplifier, beamforming microphone, a multi-core Sound Core3D audio processor, and various proprietary audio technologies. We'll examine the Sound Blaster ZxR in detail and figure out what kind of audience is best suited for a card of this caliber. To do that, we'll compare the ZxR to onboard audio and offer up some subjective analysis based on what we hear, as well as look at any potential impact in gaming performance...

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.
