Corsair Vengeance 2100 Wireless Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Jan 26 2014 | 12:34P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We?ve saved the best for last?or is it? The Vengeance 2100 headset we?re are looking at represents our last product review of Corsair?s 2013 headset refresh. Amongst the entire collection of five headsets, the Vengeance 2100 fills a premium niche with the most notable feature being its wireless capabilities. There was much to compare between the headsets and we?ll have to see if the Vengeance 2100 sits at the top of what has so far shaped to be an enforced top-to-bottom headset catalog."

Sennheiser CXC 700 Active Noise Canceling Ear-Canal Phones - BCCHardware
     Sun, Jan 26 2014 | 10:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Low-end noise canceling products usually have pretty dismal sound when the electronics are switched off, but Sennheiser`s audio quality remains stellar whether they are powered or not. Even when compared to regular (non-noise canceling) products, the audio quality is on par with the best of them. At the end of the day, these are the best overall sounding earphones I`ve used - and while I`m sure there are much better units available - for the price - and for what they bring to the party, they are pretty hard to beat."

CM Storm Ceres 300 Gaming Headset
     Fri, Jan 24 2014 | 3:06P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Be it a intense FPS or just rocking out and losing track of the world around us, we all rely on audio to carry us away, and budget can greatly factor into sounds quality and comfort when it comes to headsets. Sometimes you might have to sacrifice on or the other to get the deal you want. Cooler Master is trying to hit the middle ground with the Ceres 300 Headset.

Lenovo Thinkpad T440s Ultrabook Review
     Fri, Jan 24 2014 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you've ever worked in a professional environment for an extended period of time, chances are you've used an IBM-come-Lenovo ThinkPad at some point. Their simple black rectangle designs with the little red dot on the keyboard are downright iconic... To that end, the latest notebook in the T-series, the Lenovo ThinkPad T440s, is one of the company's slimmest and lightest to date (save for the X1 Carbon series). It weighs in at 3.5lbs (without the extra battery) and is under 0.8 inches at its thickest point. So is the ThinkPad T440s the same old business laptop with a slimmer profile and a couple of chassis tweaks, or is it a true evolution of the T-series?

Tt eSPORTS Cronos Gaming Headset Review @ TechwareLabs.com
     Fri, Jan 17 2014 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we will have the opportunity to test out the Tt eSports headset known as Cronos. Tt eSports offers very many peripherals for both consoles, and PC. When the decision came about that they were going to start releasing under eSPORTS arena, it came as no surprise because of their desire to continue to stand out with products like the level 10 mouse, co-designed by BMW and the Poseidon keyboard."

TDK A33 Wireless Weatherproof Speaker
     Wed, Jan 15 2014 | 4:58P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
By the time this review gets online 2014 will have already arrived in several countries so before we continue Id like to wish a HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone around the world. May 2014 bring prosperity, happiness, health and success to everyone and may we all get along even better than we do now. Now as you all know consumer products are especially popular during the Christmas holidays not only because most manufacturers tend to release many new products just prior in order to tempt consumers in spending their much awaited holiday bonus but also because many retailers do amazing discounts (black Friday anyone?) in order to deplete their stock and consequently show profit (well that`s the main reason anyways). Portable wireless speakers are amongst the hottest consumer electronic products currently available but with so many manufacturers competing for the first place it`s really hard to decide which model is the right one to cover your needs.

SteelSeries Siberia Elite Headset
     Wed, Jan 15 2014 | 10:28A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SteelSeries Siberia Elite Headset arrived Technic3D. Siberia Elite features spectacular, full-range sound, tuned for gaming but also excellent for music and multimedia with natural, accurate bass extension, high-frequency detail, and phenomenal impact. Siberia Elite makes unparalleled use of materials, fit, and finish, with elegant, sophisticated Danish design crowned by a sandblasted steel headband? We will check this and more in the following Review."

SteelSeries Siberia Elite Gaming Headset
     Sun, Jan 12 2014 | 4:58P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With just a few hours left before the calendar finally turns to 2014 and after having just got back from our very short vacations on the mountain none of us can really focus in testing computer hardware so we decided to do the next best thing which is to continue testing of gaming peripherals. Inside 2013 alone we had the chance to test several virtual Dolby surround sound gaming headsets, some were actually very good and some just good enough but at the end of the year i can`t say that we tested one that we considered unique both in terms of features and performance. For the past decade or so SteelSeries has been behind some of the best gaming headsets to ever hit the market but none of them can compare with their latest achievement the Siberia Elite Virtual Dolby Surround Gaming Headset which we have here with us today."

A.M.P Pulse Wireless Mobile Headphones
     Fri, Jan 10 2014 | 12:40P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a market where you can find headphones from incredibly low prices and up to a few thousands of dollars/Euros it`s obviously not easy to choose the best model for your needs and that applies even more for people who are actually looking to get something special. Personally although Ive used countless models from a large number of manufacturers i still can`t say that Ive found the holy grail of headphones and to be honest with all of you i don`t really know if i ever will since naturally i can`t use/test every single model out there. Of course the really good thing about headphones and headsets is that you can wear them pretty much everywhere so although proper testing may take time it`s not really that hard (for example even while Im typing these lines Im also listening to my favorite songs) which means that we can squeeze in more models for testing. So today we will be taking a look at the latest offering by A.M.P (Antec Mobile Products) the Pulse"

Corsair Raptor HS30 and HS40 Gaming Headsets Reviewed @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jan 07 2014 | 8:31A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was late-summer in 2012 when Corsair announced it had acquired Raptor Gaming, a German based maker of gaming peripherals. Corsair gained both a European based headquarter to distribute its wide range of computer hardware and Raptor Gaming?s entire portfolio of keyboards, mice, headsets, and accessories, which formed a new series of gaming products alongside Corsair?s Vengeance gaming products. Corsair has respected the Raptor name and not only continues to maintain many of the acquired products, but has integrated the name into new products. New Corsair Raptor products represent gaming products aimed at a more mainstream audience alongside the premium Corsair Vengeance peripherals. We look at the first ever Corsair Raptor headsets to be released, a pair called the HS30 and HS40 which join the rest of the 2013 Vengeance headsets for a refreshed lineup of Corsair gaming headsets."
