Microlab H30 BT & H50 BT Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Feb 27 2014 | 12:33P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we get to look at the H30 BT and H50 BT bookshelf speakers that offer up, as the name suggests, Bluetooth and NFC (Near Field Communication) that uses A2DP stereo streaming, judging by the competitive pricing they do not appear to be breaking form."

     Tue, Feb 25 2014 | 5:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec has branched out over the past year from what we normally know them for, cases and power supplies. They launched Antec Mobile Products (AMP) and we reviewed their flagship product the SP1 Bluetooth speaker.

These over-the-ear wireless headphones are intended for mobile use and include an integrated microphone for answering calls.

8 PCIe & SATA M.2 SSDs Test ASRocks Fatal1ty 990FX Killer AM3+ AMD MotherBoard
     Tue, Feb 25 2014 | 2:55P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To be frank, we started testing with two thoughts in mind, the first naturally wanting to confirm that we could attain PCIe 2.0 X2 performance, and the second was to validate that the M.2 connector could automatically detect M.2 SSD type and switch off, whether it be PCIe X2 or SATA 3. From there, well we just kept testing M.2 SSD after M.2 SSD until we ran out, eight in total and one that didnt want to cooperate with the AMD chipset."

Fanny Wang WangBuds Review @ TechwareLabs
     Mon, Feb 24 2014 | 9:48A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up until recently, sound quality in the main-stream mobile market was more of an afterthought than a design feature. But with the introduction of higher-end audio to the masses (Dre Beats, Monster, etc.), people have begun to realize how a good pair of headphones can really enhance their music.Today we are taking a look at a pair of earbuds from Fanny Wang called the WangBuds. Jokes about the name aside, these earbuds look like serious business with a unique design which promises to deliver amazing sound as well as comfort. Read on to see how these earbuds perform."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Review - Maxwell Architecture debuts at $150
     Tue, Feb 18 2014 | 9:15A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA`s GeForce GTX 750 Ti brings the Maxwell architecture to the world for the first time and is an exceptional demonstration of the power efficiency of this new design. Though launching with a mainstream product instead of the standard enthusiast class graphics card, NVIDIA`s attempt to target the high volume market with GM107 is likely as much due to technical reason as it is business or marketing. Using the same 28nm process technology as the previous generation of GPUs isn`t ideal and working on a smaller, higher yield piece of silicon helps make sure they have as little risk as possible."

Microlab H21 Bookshelf Bluetooth Speaker Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Mon, Feb 17 2014 | 1:51P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The unit we look at today is called the Microlab H21 and it comes as an elegantly designed 2.0 configuration bookshelf speaker system. It`s a two-way system that comes with a 3.5 woofer (that handles the low and mid frequencies) and 1 tweeter (that handles the high frequencies). It comes with an internal amplifier that allows the Bluetooth enabled H21 speaker system to output a total continuous RMS power of 36 Watts, the most wattage by any of the Bluetooth speaker systems we`ve looked at up to this point. Read on to know more, see how the Microlab H21 looks, and what it can possibly offer for your audio interest."

Audio Technica ATH-ANC70 Headphones - BCCHardware
     Mon, Feb 17 2014 | 9:48A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I used these all over the place. No matter what was happening around me, my music didnt take a backseat. The active noise cancelling did just that, cancelling most outside noise. Some sound would make it through, but it was nowhere near anything that would disrupt my experience."

SteelSeries 9H Gaming Headset
     Sat, Feb 15 2014 | 4:59P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Inside 2014 we are going to witness the release of several highly anticipated game titles for both the PC and consoles so this is a very good time for people not only to upgrade their systems in terms of firepower (PC users obviously) but also to swap their old peripherals for new ones in order to get the best possible experience. Gaming keyboards and mice are without doubt very important for both casual and serious gamers but a good gaming headset might just offer a bit more enjoyment in some games. Now as many of you know the market is filled with 5.1/7.1 virtual surround headsets most of which are no better than your average stereo headset however from time to time we have received some very decent solutions that can almost go toe to toe with real surround sound headsets. I`m certain that SteelSeries needs no introductions and since aside the excellent Elite Gaming Headset they also released the 9H Gaming Headset at around the same time we decided to see just how good it is.

SteelSeries 9H Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Feb 14 2014 | 4:59P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SteelSeries has been working on sinister things this past year putting out many new and revitalized offerings including the Apex keyboard, the Siberia Elite headset, and the Stratus controller amongst even more products. It could be speculated that SteelSeries ongoing product expansion is being coupled with its increased exposure in competitive gaming. We point to the four gaming organizations with their names and logos printed on the 9H box: Na?vi, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Tyloo, and Fnatic (the same four organizations featured on the 5Hv3?s box which we previously reviewed.) The company has long invested in marketing through eSports and the scene continues to grow through popular competitive multiplayer PC games such as League of Legends, Counterstrike: Global Offense, and DOTA 2 as well as the popularity of livestream platforms. Having the pros use company products is one way to solve the challenge of demonstrating an expensive product?s value to skeptical buyers. Of course, we?re going to keep an open mind as we review the SteelSeries 9H Gaming Headset."

     Wed, Feb 12 2014 | 10:38A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink

BitFenix launches its first gaming headset, the BitFenix Flo, for $69. It represents great value, but there are some improvements that can be made."

OZONE Rage 7HX 7.1 Surround Headset
     Tue, Feb 11 2014 | 12:28P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday i found the time to attend a small LAN event (local) where i live but as soon as i arrived (was a bit late since i had to wrap up some test results) to my surprise some of the gamers participating in the event used entry level headsets the kind of which i wouldn`t even use to answer a call even less play games with. Now i know that not everyone can afford a good gaming headset but out of curiosity i sat down with some of those players to see why they chose that solution. Well it seems that for some strange reason they all thought that in order to get a decent gaming headset they`d have to spend over USD100/100Euros (an idea which none of them liked) and although that`s accurate for real surround sound gaming headsets a good virtual surround sound gaming headset will set you back a lot less and since for the past week we`ve been testing the Rage 7HX 7.1 Surround Headset i just happened to have it inside my backpack."

TRITTON PRO+ True 5.1 Surround Headset
     Tue, Feb 11 2014 | 11:36A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
No matter how many times Ive worn a headset either for regular use while at home or on the go or for test purposes i still can`t say that i like the feeling (always compared to speaker systems) but i do recognize that its a necessary technology with more pros than cons. However that being said with so many 5.1 and 7.1 virtual surround sound headset models swarming the market it`s not very easy to locate one that makes use more than just the two typical drivers found in stereo models (many people may not even know of their existence). Quite a few manufacturers have tried their luck with real surround sound headsets but just a handful have actually managed to win the crowds with their superior positioning audio and quality. TRITTON is amongst those brands (perhaps the oldest one still around that focuses solely in the manufacture of gaming headsets) and today we will be taking a very thorough look on their latest PRO+ True 5.1 Surround Headset."
