CM Storm Ceres 400 Gaming Headset
     Fri, Oct 12 2012 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At $49.99 MSRP, the Ceres-400 is the lowest priced headset offered under the CM Storm brand and comes in about $50 less than the top-of-the-line CM Storm Sirius 5.1 gaming headset that we reviewed previously. It lacks many of the features of high-end gaming headsets such as 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound support, but promises to provide high-class sound quality, a sturdy swivel microphone and a comfortable fit. Will this lower priced alternative bring enough firepower to compete, or will it be outgunned by its higher priced rivals?"

Razer Carcharias Gaming Headset @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Sep 28 2012 | 5:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many gamers, the most important piece of hardware in their repertoire (after their computers of course) is their headset. Whether you use one so you can game while your significant other is asleep, to get better audio quality than your speakers provide, or simply because you prefer them, there`s nothing like a good headset. Razer offers gamers their Carcharias wired gaming headset, model number RZ04-00270100-R3U1. Priced for $79.99, the Carcharias offers good sound, a comfortable fit (even with glasses!), and plug-and-play interfacing. Benchmark Reviews will test the Carcharias headset for range, sensitivity, comfort and general functionality."

CM Storm Sonuz Headset Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Sep 28 2012 | 9:48A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those unwilling to put their money down on a 5.1 surround sound headset, there`s the option of choosing some less expensive models with 2.0 stereo sound. One of such models is the new Sonuz from CM Storm, a cheaper choice but one that doesn`t mean a cheap headset in terms of performance and design. On the contrary, this is a huge headset that looks like a leftover from the movie set of Robocop, with its futuristic and aggressive lines. Let`s take a look at its physical aspects and then proceed to the performance evaluation."

Asus ROG Xonar Phoebus @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Sep 22 2012 | 11:09A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
 In the PC audio world, there is a major divide as far as people who find onboard audio more than enough and users who absolutely must run a sound card. In recent years, onboard sound has improved considerably. But no matter how much they improve it, it main flaw is being on the motherboard itself and not a separate circuit. When it comes to sound cards, there are just a few top manufactures with Asus being one. Asus recently introduced a new sound card focused on the gaming market under their ROG (Republic of Gaming) line called the ROG Xonar Phoebus. I?ve had it running in my gaming system, today we will talk about my experience thus far."

Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Sep 22 2012 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair`s Vengeance 2000 seems to combine everything a gamer could possibly want in a headset: virtual 7.1 surround sound capabilities, long distance wireless operation and lightweight construction. But in a market filled with competing solutions (some of which are Corsair`s own), will its $150 price turn some people away?* *"

Sandberg Pocket Bluetooth Speaker Review
     Wed, Sep 19 2012 | 4:07P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the past 4 years or so most smartphones Ive used featured speakers (sometimes more than just one for virtual 3D audio) that could deliver quite a punch for their size. However no matter how much powerful a smartphone speaker is it can never be powerful enough (if you like listening to music) and at the same time using it means that your smartphones battery charge will reach critical levels before long. Portable Bluetooth speakers are the obvious solution to that problem but most of the available units currently are not what you`d call small and so one must spend quite a bit of time searching for the ideal portable speaker, size-wise speaking. Sandberg may not be the first company to come in mind when looking to buy smartphone peripherals but their latest pocket Bluetooth speaker just might be what many of you have been looking for."

SteelSeries Guild Wars 2 Gaming Headset Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Today we will be taking a look at the new Guild Wars 2 gaming headset from SteelSeries. Sometimes with franchise tie-ins we find that a company has counted on the name on the box on not put the effort in with the actual product, will SteelSeries fall foul of this same issue?"

CoolerMaster Storm Sonuz @ ocaholic
     Wed, Sep 19 2012 | 9:23A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink

With the Storm Sonuz, Cooler Master has a new stereo gaming headset in its portfolio. According to the specifications the manufacturer seems to have focussed on excellent audio quality. There are drivers in this headset that have a diameter of 53 millimeter and probably they`re even able to compete with high-end headsets."

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.
