Intel GT3 Graphics in Haswell - Twice as Fast as Ivy Bridge @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, May 02 2013 | 4:23A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One would expect that Intel would be putting this glorious new GPU technology into socketed desktop processors, but we have learned that is not the case. Only certain BGA versions will receive GT3 (Intel HD 5xxx) integrated graphics. Intel will have some R-series desktop processors that feature Intel HD 5200 graphics (GT3e), like the Core i7-4770R, but they are all BGA solutions. All of the traditional desktop processors will get GT2 (Intel HD 4xxx) integrated graphics..."

Gigabyte Fly Headphones Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, May 01 2013 | 10:27P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte Fly headphones are designed to be lightweight and portable while providing powerful bass performance. The Gigabyte Fly headphones only weigh 79 grams without the 1.2 meter long vinyl-coated cable and 3.5mm gold plated audio jack. The reinforced adjustable steel headband on the Gigabyte Fly is lightweight yet durable enough to withstand the daily commute and rigorous outdoor activities. The Fly headphones` ear cups are equipped with 40mm Neodymium drivers that have a frequency response range of 15 to 20,000 Hz and sensitivity of 122 dB/mW. Soft leatherette ear cushion covers help isolate noise and also provide comfortable fit while wearing the Gigabyte Fly headphone for long periods of time. For peace of mind, the Gigabyte Fly headphone comes with a two-year warranty tied into a unique serial number included inside the package.///"

Oblanc NC2-3 U.F.O Bluetooth Stereo Headphones Review
     Wed, May 01 2013 | 12:34P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the summer period already opening its arms to welcome us more and more people are looking to buy wireless Bluetooth headsets for use while in the house, on the go or while working out. Now although Jabra recently released the quite remarkable REVO wireless Bluetooth headset the market is not really filled with such solutions, at least not powerful enough solutions for people who really want to listen to their tunes without volume restrictions. Granted the REVO is perhaps the best Bluetooth wireless headset out there but its rather high price tag makes it very hard for people on a tight budget to look at it as a valid solution so we searched around to find a Bluetooth wireless headset that shares most of the features found in the REVO but at half its price tag, if not less. Well it seems that the NC2-3 U.F.O Bluetooth Stereo Headphones by Oblanc just might be the right ones for the job."

RHA MA450i Earphones Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Apr 29 2013 | 6:39A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For some earphones are what they occasionally use when they need to and most likely those people are fine with the earphones that come with their device. Others are people who depend on their earphones to take them away from their surroundings or keep them motivated. These are people who are traveling, working out, or are working remotely. They not only want great sound, but also great comfort as well. RHA, a company out of Glasgow, UK has sent us their latest earphones, the MA450i. These earphones feature a solid aluminum design, 10mm Mylar drivers, seven interchangeable ear-tips and a fabric braided cable. The MA450i has also been certified for use with iPhone, iPod and iPad devices so you will be able to make and receive calls."

AZiO Levetron GH808 USB Gaming Headset @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Apr 25 2013 | 4:27P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is widely believed that gaming headsets provide a much more immersive, captivating gaming experience than a speaker set up. They are also great in environments where the people around you don`t fancy hearing deafening gunfire and explosions. Gaming headsets generally come in 3 different forms: wired 3.5mm headsets ,wired USB headsets and wireless headsets. One tends to usually decide which of these types to buy before considering things like 7.1 surround, Dolby audio, noise cancellation, etc. 3.5 mm and wireless headsets immediately present compelling features: the former can be used in tandem with a quality soundcard to produce sublime audio output, the latter frees the user from the burden of cables. We are left to investigate the advantages of buying a USB headset, and observe how they compare to the rest. In this article, Benchmark Reviews will test the AZiO Levetron GH808 Gaming Headset and see if it is a viable option for an enhanced audio experience..."

ASUS Orion Pro Gaming Headset @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Apr 23 2013 | 4:27P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Republic of Gamers (ROG) was established by ASUS in 2006 in order to be the organization`s entity that focused solely on the needs of PC gamers. Since then, the ROG has not only produced great gaming hardware, but it has developed into a gaming community. It goes without saying that ASUS has the respect of the vast majority of hardcore gamers out there, and ASUS set out to ensure that the Orion Pro gaming headset would nothing but elevate its reputation. The goal here was to develop a headset that delivered unrivaled audio, yet remained light and comfortable. Benchmark reviews will test the ASUS Orion Pro gaming headset to see if it lives up to the ROG standards..."

[Tech ARP] How To Set Your Bluetooth Headset As The Default Audio Device
     Tue, Apr 23 2013 | 10:43A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even though you may have successfully linked your Bluetooth headset to your computer , Windows may not use it as an audio output device. You will need to enable the Listen to Music service for your Bluetooth headset before audio gets piped to it, instead of the computer`s speakers. Even if you get to that point, you will notice that your Bluetooth headset will disconnect itself whenever you recharge its batteries. That`s okay, but it`s supposed to automatically re-enable the Listen to Music service when it reconnects to your computer. In some cases, it will refuse to do so, forcing you to manually enable the Listen to Music service every single time you connect your Bluetooth headset to your computer. This mini-guide will show you how to enable the Listen to Music service for your Bluetooth headset and how to force Windows to accept your Bluetooth headset as the default audio device, if it doesn`t already do that."

AIAIAI TMA-1 Studio Headphones With Mic Review
     Mon, Apr 22 2013 | 12:22P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve always believed that owning a very good headset is always a good thing since you can use it to watch your favorite movies, play your favorite games and listen to your favorite tunes without intruding on the privacy of all those around you. Luckily most people i know feel exactly the same and so a friend of mine has been looking to purchase an good headset for the past year or so but the catch is that aside the fact that he wants superior audio quality and clarity he also wants it to be small, light, comfortable and to feature excellent noise insulation. So you can all understand that the entire specifications/features combo he is looking for is not something easy to come by especially in the sub USD250/250Euros category. At least that was the case until the exact moment he saw me testing the TMA-1 Studio headset by AIAIAI roughly two weeks ago and decided to spend a couple of hours with them as well."

Plantronics Voyager Legend UC Bluetooth Headset Review
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 6:39A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I got my first Bluetooth wireless headset back in early 2003 and it was the none other than NOKIAs first real attempt in the Bluetooth wireless headset market, the HDW-2 (i still have it in working condition) which i paired back then with my brand new NOKIA 6600 smartphone. Of course 10 years later things have changed a lot both when it comes to Bluetooth wireless headsets and smartphones and by a lot i mean in ways we couldn`t had predicted back then. Sure the concept has remained the same just like with most things that have evolved (take cars or PCs for example) but we now have wireless headsets that look better, weigh a lot less, have far superior audio quality for both ends, feature impressive noise-cancelling technologies, can be voice controlled, have longer battery lives, feature motion sensors, can stream media from your Bluetooth enabled device and much more. A while ago we reviewed the Voyager Legend Bluetooth wireless headset which is pretty much the best one currently available in the market both in terms of audio quality and features. Well it seems that Plantronics thinks so too and so recently they unveiled the more complete UC version which we have here with us today."

Posted by: STAFF
"Following hot on the heels of the vPulse earphones that impressed us last year, the vTrue Studio headphones from the subwoofer experts at Velodyne promise accurate, low-distortion audio in a forged aluminum shell. These unique-looking cans will turn certainly heads in any setting. Let’s see if the performance is as noteworthy as the design and worth the $399 price tag."

Ineo Alienvibes W601 Speaker Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Apr 13 2013 | 8:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Alienvibes W601 2.2 speakers from ineo technologies absolutely adhere to audiophile starting points on how to build a good speaker set. Right off the bat, the Alienvibes W601 features all wooden enclosures with piano black plastic trim, satellites with 2 x 3 midrange and 1 tweeter, plus a pair of 5.25 drivers in a vented enclosure handling the lows. The amp built into the sub enclosure pumps out 15w RMS x 2 to the satellites and 50w RMS mono to the subs with an active crossover. The face of the sub enclosure has an easy to use interface for vol/bass/treble/input/mute as well as USB and SD card inputs. Simply insert a USB or SD card with music files and the W601 can play them back with full control plus an EQ with eight factory tuned presets. Dual inputs for RCA and 3.5mm allow for multiple sources to be used, making the W601 a great audio piece for an entertainment center."

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.
