Plantronics Voyager Edge Bluetooth Headset Review
     Wed, May 06 2015 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you drive your car a lot and you need to answer calls then you have two "legal" choices as we speak so you can either use a car speakerphone or a hands-free earset/headset. Car speakerphones however are not all equal so on one hand you have the cost-effective portable models which you can move around with you and offer good bidirectional audio and the more advanced and expensive speakerphone kits which require to be hardwired to your cars stereo system. Both are valid solutions but aside the fact that both have different target groups they have but one common drawback, you can't use them at all times. This is where hands-free earsets/headsets take the lead since you can use them at all times and are much easier/faster to configure and use than their larger counterparts. Now it's been a while since i last came across a hands-free Bluetooth wireless earset worth of my time but Plantronics never lets me down so roughly two years after they released the excellent Voyager Legend model we have with us the brand new Voyager Edge Bluetooth Headset.

ID-Cooling Builds Mini-ITX CPU Cooler With Vapor Chamber
     Thu, Apr 30 2015 | 12:21A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The vapor chamber at the bottom of the cooler is welded to a handful of aluminum fins, and that's it. On top of those rests a slim 92 mm fan, and the entire construction is about 4 cm thick. Despite that, thanks to the vapor chamber, ID-Cooling stated that the unit is capable of dissipating heat coming from CPUs with TDP's of up to 130 W. For something this small, that's a tremendous amount of cooling power.

ASUS Strix 7.1 Surround Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Apr 13 2015 | 1:26P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Flashy and fashionable audio wear has been a fascinating trend with new ideas being tested every year. The ASUS Strix headset lineup is perhaps one of the showiest audio products to be released that we are getting the chance to take a look at. Curves and edges give way to large owl eyes on the exterior of the earcups that light up. For the Strix 7.1, an Audio Control Station acts as a stylish desktop remote control that hides an audio processor that drives the headsets true 7.1 surround sound design."

     Mon, Apr 06 2015 | 1:14P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Cooler Master first got the idea to use noise-reduction material inside a chassis, more than 7 years ago, it unfortunately went with the name Sileo. Changing the brand to Silencio was a smart move and now, in 2015, we have a new range of quiet chassis under the KitGuru studio lights with Chris Gough from Cooler Master to explain the latest features.

Posted by: STAFF
"Have you ever had the experience where you thought you purchased a great set of headphones, only to be sorely disappointed when you plugged them into your smartphone for your morning jog? You might think that the headphones are to blame here, but that may not necessarily be the case. They just might need a little boost from a device like the Creative Sound Blaster E3, a Bluetooth-enabled headphone amplifier and USB DAC that unlocks the true audio potential of your chosen headset."

Kingston Cloud II Gaming Headset Review
     Sun, Apr 05 2015 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston is one of the biggest names in the PC industry, they’ve got a rock-solid reputation for creating some of the best and most popular storage devices on the market, such as their HyperX range of DDR memory and SSDs. They took the gaming world by storm with the release of their incredible Cloud gaming headset and while we suspected they couldn’t possibly make the original Cloud even better, Kingston seems to think otherwise. “HyperX® Cloud II features a newly designed USB sound card audio control box that amplifies audio and voice for an optimal Hi-Fi gaming experience, so you can hear what you’ve been missing. Open up a world of detail other gamers will never know – the rustle of a camper’s boot, the scuttle in a distant vent. Its independent audio and microphone volume control lets you adjust not only sound volume but also mic volume and easily toggle Surround Sound 7.1 or the mic sound on and off. This next-generation headset generates virtual 7.1 surround sound with distance and depth to enhance your gaming, movie or music experience. Pinpoint your opponents’ location in the game and strike before he sees you coming.” The Cloud II is the latest incarnation of their Cloud series pro gaming headsets. It promises improved performance and a very competitive price tag. It offers support for PC, Mac and PlayStation 4, with added bonus features such as virtual 7.1 surround. It certainly ticks a lot of boxes, so let’s stop beating around the bush and take a close look at what it has to offer.
