i-Mego Walker Junior Noise Cancelling Headphones Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, May 26 2013 | 12:35P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ive got a nice assortment of headphones and earbuds that Ive collected over the years of reviewing products but it occurs to me Ive never owned or reviewed a set of headphones that feature active noise cancelling. I dont know why I dont have any, its just worked out that, but I finally do and I think I know understand better why people like them so much. Today for review I have the i-Mego Walker Junior Noise Cancelling Headphones that feature, as you might have guessed, active noise cancelling. The Walker Junior headphones actually need a battery to power the noise cancelling feature, something you might not expect a pair of headphones to need surely. The headphones are made for the traveler so they can fold up to a small size making them easily transportable. These arent just for travelers of course, anyone who likes good sound and the ability to keep outside noise out will appreciate the Walker Junior headphones. So read on to learn more about the Walker Junior headphones "

i-Mego Throne Gold Over Ear Headphones Review @ TestFreaks
     Sat, May 25 2013 | 12:35P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Music is a huge part of our lives, I know I dont leave home without my MP3 player and if I do happen to forget it I have music on my phone. The problem with these mp3 players and phones is that the headphones that comes with them usually arent best especially if you like good sounding music. Today for review I have the i-Mego Throne headphones, these are over the ear style and in my time with them I found them to be excellent overall in sound and build quality. The sound from the Throne headphones is crisp and full and clear, but they might be a little bit heavy on the bass and slightly light on the treble. It just all depends on the type of music you prefer to listen to. The Throne headphones might be considered expensive by some, coming in at about $130, but for good sound you have to pay a little more and these are definitely worth the price. So read on to learn more about the i-Mego Throne headphones.. "

ASUS ROG Orion Pro Gaming Headset Review
     Fri, May 24 2013 | 2:09P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having completely disposed of the Vulcan ANC headset from ASUS, I honestly expected - and was ready to - hate this headset as well. However, I was completely blown away by the ROG Orion Pro headset. It was beyond my expectations in sound, depth, and overall performance/ease of use. I wanted to hate them after the Vulcan ANC headset had disappointed me so much, but I just couldn`t. The sound quality and depth of songs just left me in awe with the Orion Pro headset. These little guys will be travelling with me next week for work and have a nice little home here at my gaming computer for late night battles with my friends. I honestly can`t put too many words with this headset; the sound is just remarkable for the price and comfort. They just seem surreal."

TRITTON XBOX 360 Detonator Stereo Headset Review
     Sun, May 19 2013 | 5:17P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although for the past 7 years or so i have used countless stereo, virtual surround and true surround headsets i have to confess that nothing beats an dedicated 5.1/6.1/7.1 surround sound set in terms of positioning audio, clarity, volume levels and comfort especially if you plan on spending many hours in front of the screen. Still i can`t deny that headsets can be extremely useful especially when you are using it with multiplayer games (mainly because it`s easier to speak with your teammates) or you just don`t want to intrude on the privacy of those around you and vice versa. I guess that`s also why most people i know own headsets that they use with their computers, however the same does not apply for people with gaming consoles such as the Microsoft XBOX 360 mainly because there aren`t as many fully compatible headsets out in the market which is also why today we will be taking a look at the Detonator Stereo Headset by TRITTON."

ASUS ROG ORION PRO Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, May 18 2013 | 8:12P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,The ASUS ROG Orion Pro Gaming Headset are a mid-range set of cans aimed at online gamers. Meant for extended sessions of gaming, they offer very high build quality, light weight with generous padding that make them disappear on your head. The Orion Pro produce very good sound quality, gripping bass and very clear treble, and the retractable microphone is respectable with some adjustment to volume. The included Spitfire USB Audio dongle adds value, but was a mixed bag. Offering interesting features like virtual surround, FPS `EQ`, and an amp, but decreased the overall sound quality to my ears. Besides that, the Orion Pro are one of the best headsets I`ve tested so far, and for $120US, are a pretty good deal to boot"

     Thu, May 16 2013 | 9:26A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to getting speakers sadly many people just simply go to the store and pick up what they have there and do not do any research at all. Speakers allow you to take the headphones off and share the music you are listening to. Today we are taking a look at an interesting 2.2-channel speaker system from a new company called Alien Vibes. The Alien Vibes W601 features a large dual subwoofer, dual 15-watt satellites, wooden construction and a built in card reader and USB port that you can use to play music from different devices. Will the W601 impress? Read on to find out."

Eagle Tech ET-ARHP300FS-BK Urban Zen Headphones
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 9:11A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far back as i can remember i always watched movies (who can forget the Beverly Hills Cop, Baywatch and many other blockbusters of the 80`s) with gorgeous women running at the beach in their tight gym outfits or bathing suits while listening to their favorite music using the quite famous back then SONY Walkman cassette players. In real life however and more particularly where i live (can`t really speak about other places) that trend took almost 3 full decades to get here and so it wasn`t until 3-4 years ago that i started seeing people do the same this time however the then classic Walkman has naturally been replaced with smartphones and MP3/4 players. No matter however how many new headsets we see get introduced into the market each day we don`t really see anything unique in terms of design and for people who actually want to feel well with themselves while wearing them out in the open design and appearance does play a significant role. So to cater to those needs today we will be taking a closer look at the ET-ARHP300FS-BK Urban Zen Headphones by Eagle Tech."

ASUS ROG Vulcan ANC Headset Review
     Tue, May 14 2013 | 3:08P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the end it didn`t end up being the headphones I disliked so much, it was the headphone`s main feature: the active noise canceling. The uncanny, brain exploding feel when turning on the ANC switch was something that just didn`t go away, nor was it something I could just get used to. Every time it was on, I felt like either my head was in a vice or that I was going up in elevation and couldn`t get my ears to pop. That wasn`t the only issue with the ANC being on either. The quality of sound was also significantly reduced when the ANC was on. Music lost its bass, sounding tin can-ish, and games actually were a bit harder to hear what was happening around you - I just kept getting snuck up on and killed. I`m not exactly sure why anyone would ever want to use the ANC feature. With the sound quality in the bucket the switch will never be on. Get rid of the ANC altogether and this headset isn`t too bad (except for the cost). It`s a nice thought, but I`d rather have sound quality over canceling out my case fans."

Tech-Life BeatBlock Premium Bluetooth Wireless Speaker Review
     Mon, May 13 2013 | 5:17P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
April is almost over and so the time has finally come for most of us to start making preparations and plans for our summer vacations (although personally Ill be happy if i can manage to leave for just a week). This might be also why many friends and even some of you out there have asked from us to increase our reviews regarding mobile audio devices like Bluetooth headsets and speakers something which as you can easily see we`ve been doing already. However to satisfy that request we are working around the clock to acquire and test such devices from all the leading manufacturers in the field. One such manufacturer is Tech-Life (yet quite new) and today we will be taking a look at their BeatBlock Premium Bluetooth Wireless Speaker which according to them is the most advanced of its kind currently in the market."

CODA One Hands-free Speakerphone - BCCHardware
     Sun, May 12 2013 | 6:37A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CODA One has stereo speakers and dual microphones that help in noise reduction. On the front it has some indicator lights as well as a Speaker-phone button for answering calls. One the side are volume buttons (up and down) as well as a handset button that allows you to answer your phone and use the CODA One like a traditional phone handset. This is an interesting idea for sure, but if you have to pick up and hold the One, I`m not sure why you wouldn`t just pick up your phone and talk on it like normal. . ."

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.
