Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2
     Fri, Oct 16 2015 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 sounds as good as any $200 portable speaker we have tested before and with a feature list that just seems to go on and on, it is incredible value. The best part being while we feel the Roar 2 is great value at the $230 MSRP, it can actually be had for just $170 online. I know... what are you doing still reading? Go buy one!

Corsair VOID RGB Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Oct 14 2015 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair VOID RGB Wireless 7.1 is one of five different headsets in the VOID lineup. Wired analog and USB models are also available, but the analog model does not support the Corsair CUE software due to a lack of compatible interface. Also available is the VOID Wireless SE Yellowjacket Edition that features a yellow colored frame and black accents, with all of the other pertinent features exactly the same as the standard VOID RGB Wireless 7.1. The Corsair VOID RGB Wireless 7.1 that we are looking at today is currently available for $129.99....

Mionix Nash 20 Gaming Headset Review
     Tue, Oct 13 2015 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I get to take a look at the latest headset from premium gaming peripheral manufacturer Mionix, the Nash 20. Mionix aren’t the biggest name in the industry for peripherals, but their reputation is incredible, anyone I know who has tried their products has been immediately converted to a fan of the brand, and that’s simply due to their attention to quality and performance, creating products suitable for the enthusiast PC user, without charging the kind of money often associated with that level of quality. Unfortunately for Mionix, their reputation is a tough one to live up to, with each new product I see from this brand I expect the same unwavering attention to detail, so I’m hoping to see something pretty special from the Nash 20 today. The Nash 20 is priced at a little over £100, so it’s obviously a premium price product, and at this price range you’re obviously going to want to see a good return on your investment in terms of build quality, features and of course performance. As you can see from the quote below, Mionix takes their products pretty seriously so it will be interesting to see if it lives up to both their own standards and mine.

D-Link Wi-Fi Audio Extender
     Thu, Oct 08 2015 | 4:15P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whether someone is at home, work, school, hotel, or sporting events, chances are they would love to be connected to Wi-Fi. Cellular networks are much better than they were years ago, but there’s still nothing like a quality Wi-Fi connection. Like every radio, Wi-Fi access points only have so much output power, and even at ideal power levels for an access point, it may not extend to the far reaches of an area. A common way to reach hard to reach areas is with an extender. D-Link Wi-Fi Audio Extender will help extend a 2.4GHz b/g/n Wi-Fi network and also has a little bonus, audio streaming!"

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
     Thu, Oct 08 2015 | 3:58P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The graphics consistently remind me of console graphics, but nothing is bad looking, except for one issue that is likely a bug. The performance is there, which is really the most important thing when it comes to graphics. The story has a lot of complexity to it, but despite not having experience with the rest of the series, I am not feeling lost or overwhelmed by it. The story can also have a good sense of humor without losing its seriousness. The gameplay has many quirks to it, but still offers a solid and fun experience. With almost 70 hours into it so far, and still plenty more to go, I know I am happy with it, and I think many of you will be, too.”

Corsair VOID Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Oct 07 2015 | 5:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the VOID Wireless, we are getting quite a bit of improvements regarding product comfort, LED lighting system and software configuration. Corsair has added the RGB system for extra eye candy, but we have found more useful the two LEDs near the MIC which light up in order to signal different product statuses. The two 50mm drivers are able to deliver good gaming-grade quality sound and we found the microphone fidelity about the same as on the Vengeance 2100 and this is not a bad thing since that one impressed us positively too.

Tt eSPORTS Shock 3D 7.1 Gaming Headset Review
     Tue, Sep 29 2015 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unlike most review samples that reach our lab on a daily basis gaming peripherals require quite a bit of time to test and so we always wait until we have more than just 2 or 3 here before we start testing since usually that saves us a good amount of time. Of course the most ideal and obvious way for someone to test gaming peripherals is by playing games and so we also need to have a brand new game title in our hands in order to do that. Luckily we haven't finished Batman Arkham Knight yet (no free time to play unfortunately) and we also just started to play the brand new World Of Warships naval action MMO (by our friends over at Wargaming.net creators of World Of Tanks and World Of Airplanes) so since we have everything covered today we're going to take a thorough look at one of the latest gaming peripherals released by Tt eSPORTS the Shock 3D 7.1 headset.

Intel Core i7-6700K "Skylake" LGA 1151 Processor Reviewed
     Mon, Sep 28 2015 | 1:53P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Intel Core i7-6700K Skylake processor boasts the fastest quad core frequencies and architectural design to date especially in terms of frequencies, power consumption, and finally introduces DDR4 memory support to the mass market. It also requires a Z170 motherboard using a new LGA 1151 socket and DDR4 memory to operate (with SOME exceptions).

Cutebeat BT Vibration Speaker Review
     Sun, Sep 27 2015 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we take a look at the Cowin CuteBeat BT Vibration speaker which features ‘Resonance Technology’. This speaker will let you play music from various external sources using either a 3.5mm audio cable or by streaming directly to the unit via Bluetooth. It will ‘vibrate sound’ from any hard surface and official ratings measure the sound output at 12W. A rechargeable battery means you can take music with you, anywhere you decide to go. But is it any good?

Tesoro Kuven Pro Review
     Thu, Sep 17 2015 | 12:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Headsets with multichannel audio rendering are popular with many people for various reasons. This could be due to their promise of heightened spatial awareness/directional audio or perhaps due to various other reasons which can all be added to the list in the good quality stereo headset VS real surround headset debate, but the end game is, there is a market for them. So it's not surprising to see various manufacturers offering a 'real 5.1 surround headset' as part of their range. This is what it seems Tesoro have done, by taking their Kuven v7.1, which is a solid stereo headset, and offer it as a real 5.1 surround alternative in the form of the Kuven Pro.

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.
