Able Planet NC350SCT Headphones Review.
     Thu, Dec 25 2014 | 11:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For my money, the Bose QuietComforrt 3 fits my needs. Other companies seem to think so too, as the Able Planet NC3550SCST Noise Cancelling Headphones seem to copy as much from the QC15 as possible without outright copyright and patent violation.

The padding on my Bose QC15 headphones popped a seam and the leather cracked. Here's how to repair the earcups.Corsair's K70 mechanical keyboard may lack macro ability, but its other features warrant putting it on your short list for gaming keyboards.

Astro A38 Gaming Headset Review
     Thu, Dec 25 2014 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Astro is one of the hottest gaming brands around. They’re proving a popular choice with pro gamers in the eSports community, as well as winning over consumers with their high-end performance, and premium aesthetics. We’ve reviewed a few products from Astro here at eTeknix and we’ve yet to be disappointed by any of them. The Wireless Astro A50 Multi-format headset (review) and the A40 Audio System 2013 edition (review) still stand as some of the best headsets I’ve ever tested, so I’m eager to see what their latest product has to offer.

The speakers are also equipped with Bluetooth and for a more convenient control method Edifier also supplies a slim and sleek IR remote with removable battery.

Edifier 980T 2.0 speakers review
     Sat, Dec 20 2014 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not everyone has the budget for huge 7.1 surround sound kits. So what can you get towards the lower end of the spectrum? How about a pair of Edifier 980T speakers with full MDF frames and a specially formulated bass reflex port on each? At £50, they might be just what you are looking for – so let us see if they stand up to our battery of tests.

SuperTooth HD VOICE In-Car Speakerphone Review
     Wed, Dec 17 2014 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even if the law in some countries didn't "force" the use of hands free devices while in the car purely for safety reasons i really believe that this is one of the most important things drivers should always have in their cars (providing the car doesn't have a built-in one tied to the music system). Of course the best solution is indeed a factory mounted speakerphone hardwired to the music system of the car but the cost of such devices is quite high and after looking around online i can't say that many car models feature such devices in their basic packages (not to mention that you may not even own a brand new car to begin with). The next best solution is one I've been using for many years now and that's no other than portable car speakerphones which can be used whenever you're in the car and provide good audio quality for both ends not to mention that these cost a lot less and require no installation whatsoever. Today we'll be testing the latest car speakerphone by SuperTooth the HD VOICE.

Bass Egg VERB Bluetooth Vibration Portable Speaker Review
     Thu, Dec 11 2014 | 4:05P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Have you ever felt that you`ve seen everything in your area of expertise (study/work) only to find out that you were wrong? Well i don`t know if this happens a lot to you but in the electronics industry there`s always something new that manages to catch us off guard either because its superior performance compared to similar products or because it`s innovative. Well that happens to be one of the things we all like about this industry (a friend of mine says that there`s always a surprise around the corner) so we`re not really complaining. Now as you all know portable speakers use one or more drivers and sometimes even a passive bass radiator to produce sound a rule which pretty much applies to all kinds of speakers. Well our friends from Bass Egg seem to have a different idea in mind and so today we`re testing their latest VERB portable speaker."

Noontec Zoro II HD Fashion Hi-Fi Headphones Review
     Wed, Dec 10 2014 | 10:04A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When people hear the word headphones their mind immediately thinks of well-known and established manufacturers such as Sennheiser, AKG, B&W, JBL and Koss. This is of course the natural response any person would have (especially since at first we too would think of those names) but that certainly doesn`t mean that these manufacturers are the only ones capable of releasing high quality products with very good or even excellent audio reproduction. As a matter of fact the best headphones I?ve used to date were manufactured by Ultrasone a name which although very familiar to audiophiles around the world it`s not as popular as the ones we mentioned. Noontec may not aspire to design and manufacture the best headphones money can buy but they do offer models with very good audio reproduction at extremely affordable prices and the brand new Zorro II HD Fashion Hi-Fi Headphones aim to take things a step further."

Performance is one of the qualities we will test on the Corsair Gaming H1500 Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset today at Benchmark Reviews.

Corsair Gaming H2100 wireless headset review
     Sat, Dec 06 2014 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Corsair Gaming H2100 wireless headset. The H2100 is a follow-up model to the Vengeance series and works through a USB transmitter powered Dolby headset. One charge will get you 9 hours of wireless headset gaming over two quality Neodyne 50mm drivers. These surround sound headphones offer 16-bit/48 KHz playback and come with Dolby Pro Logic IIx certification and a new color theme, black is back.

Corsair Gaming H1500 USB Gaming Headset
     Thu, Dec 04 2014 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair recently rebranded many of their gaming peripherals to the new “Corsair Gaming” moniker. While a simple rename doesn’t mean much, the new branding was immediately followed by a wave of new devices from Corsair. These range from the new RGB equipped keyboards and mice to their new H-series headsets. Today we’ll be taking a look at the new H1500 headset, a USB gaming headset that promises virtual Dolby 7.1 audio and powerful 50mm drivers. The H1500 has been designed with PC gaming in mind, it’s got everything you could need for home or competitive gaming. It features powerful drivers to help you get lost in your favourite digital environment, backed up with surround sound support for extra immersion. There’s also a high quality folding microphone for team chat and an in-line controller to help you keep the most important controls within easy reach. Of course, a desktop headset needs to be more versatile than just gaming, so I’ll be expecting good all-round audio performance from the new H1500 in movies, music and gaming alike.
