Jabra SOLEMATE The Ultimate Portable Speaker Review
     Sat, Nov 10 2012 | 8:07P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During the past 2 years Ive seen many companies release wireless speakers for use with smartphones and tablets by using the typical Bluetooth connection (and rarely via Wi-Fi). However in most occasions these speakers are not to be taken seriously due to the fact they most of them have but a single speaker (monophonic) and their audio levels are not much better than those of your smartphone/tablet. Sure there are quite a few exceptions out there in the market including the very good Audyssey Dock Air (Wi-Fi) and several other high quality ones by JBL and Klipsch but the price range of those is way far from what most people can afford for a portable wireless speaker. Well according to Jabra their latest SOLEMATE wireless portable speaker hits the sweet spot between performance and price and so we`ve been using it for a period of almost 20 days to see whether or not their claims have any base at all."

Thinksound MS01 8mm In-Ear Monitor Earphones Review
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 1:51P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We all know that MP3/4 players, tablets, cellular phones and basically pretty much every portable device that is capable of reproducing media files comes with earphones bundled in the same box (even tape/CD/MD players had one) which are just but basic/low-cost pairs. For good or bad to most people that specific pair will be more than just enough (especially since it comes at almost no cost) but audio enthusiasts and generally people who always want the best they can afford will certainly search the market for something better with the name of one of the well-known manufacturers in the field such as Sennheiser, Sony and others. Honestly that was also the path i used to take up to around 5-6 years ago but after having tested many earphones by quite a few of the lesser known manufacturers i no longer pay much attention on brand names but rather on the product itself. Thinksound is one such manufacturer and ever since i received and tested their TS02+Mic earset roughly two years ago i consider them to be amongst the very few manufacturers that actually hit the sweet spot between audio quality and price without sacrificing build quality, quite the opposite actually. So for the past month we`ve been testing their brand new MS01 8mm in-ear monitor with passive noise isolation to see if it walks on the same successful path as the TS02+Mic."

Onkyo TX-NR818 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver Review @MissingRemote
     Thu, Nov 08 2012 | 6:34A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As the glue in a well-equipped home theater, the audio video receiver (AVR) is a natural hub where audio and video processing can be consolidated into a single device alongside other functions like over the top (OTT) IP services. Onkyo has embraced this ideal with the 135 watts per channel TX-NR818, which offers decoding support for all of the modern audio codecs, HQV video processing and scaling up to 4K UltraHD. More importantly when it comes to room correction, arguably the most important feature of a modern AVR, the TX-NR818 offers Audysseys flagship MultEQ XT32 an outstanding feat given its $1200 MSRP (~$800 street). With all of the features included, the TX-NR818 seems to be an incredible value, offering unmatched capability per dollar. Moving beyond the spec sheet however, nothing is without compromise lets dig in and discover where Onkyos 2012 mid-range master excels, and where it does not. *"

SteelSeries Siberia V2 Frost Blue USB Headset Review
     Sun, Nov 04 2012 | 1:51P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Audio may not progress as fast and as much as graphics do and it`s certainly not as important to most people (lets face it the first thing most of us choose is the TV/Monitor and then the speaker system) but owning a good headset for use with your personal computer is never a bad idea, especially if you`re not living alone. However choosing the right headset for you is certainly not the easiest thing nowadays due to the extremely large number of manufacturers and all the different designs and types available (stereo, virtual surround, surround) but in the end you can never go wrong if you choose to trust one of the well-known manufacturers. SteelSeries may not be a name you`d pick when going out to buy an general purpose headset but when it comes to PC peripherals (headsets included) they are without doubt one of the best manufacturers currently in the market and today with us we have their latest USB headset the Siberia V2 Frost Blue."

Gear4 Angry Birds Black Bird Mini Speaker Review @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Nov 03 2012 | 5:32P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So what I have for review today doesnt need much introduction I think, at least I think you all should know what Angry Birds are by now! What I have for review is what could be called a mobile phone speaker, but its much more than that as it can be used with any device that has a standard audio port on it. The product is the Gear4 Angry Birds Mini Speaker, and its the Black Bird version. There are other versions of the speakers available including the new Angry Birds Space themed ones. If you like Angry Birds and you need an external speaker, then you certainly need to read this review"

Edifier Bric Bluetooth Speaker Dock - BCCHardware
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 9:42A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The value of these speakers is where they really shine. What they lack in high-end performance, they make up in price. You should be able to pick these up online for ~$80 pretty easily and for that price, they really add value to your media devices. They work with almost all Bluetooth devices and every Apple product we tried on them. . ."

Ineo Alienvibes EP02 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Oct 28 2012 | 10:45P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ineo has released a new line of audio devices. The first product is their Alienvibes EP02 noise cancelling headphones. The Ineo Alienvibes EP02 headphones are an over the ear type of headphone featuring active noise cancelling. They use 40mm drivers to provide a smaller size while providing clear sound. Ineo designed the EP02 headphones to be comfortable for long periods of time by using plush breathable ear cushions, which also assist with the noise cancelling, offering 13 to 18dB of isolation. To provide a clean, crisp sound, the frequency response is from 20Hz to 20KHz with a 110dB sensitivity rating. The Alienvibes EP02 are ideal for use with an MP3 player, Smartphone, or tablet, thanks to the included inline microphone and being self-powered by two AAA batteries.///"

Plantronics GameCom 780 7.1 Surround Sound Headset Review
     Fri, Oct 26 2012 | 12:42P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`re an avid gamer just like me then you are certainly aware that October has seen the launch of three very special game titles, the long awaited XCOM Enemy Unknown turn based RTS, the DOOM 3 BFG FPS (special remastered edition of the original DOOM 3) and the Medal Of Honor Warfighter FPS. So it goes without saying that i spend quite a few hours playing all of them (except DOOM 3 BFG which was not as remastered as i had hoped) during the past 2 weeks and as i already mentioned in a previous review as expected i took that opportunity to test some of the latest gaming related peripherals to reach our doorstep. Plantronics is a company i bet most of you know but what some of you may not be aware of is that aside their quite impressive Bluetooth headsets they also manufacture surround gaming headsets and today we will be taking a rather thorough look at their GameCom 780 7.1 surround headset."
