     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 1:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you were given the task of creating the world’s best headphones how would you do it? American cable experts JPS Labs proposed the same question but took it a stage further by taking the lofty challenge head on. Targeting the wealthy audiophile audience, money was firmly a secondary factor for consideration. After many years of research and development their planar magnetic Abyss 1266 headphones are the end result. Just be sure to check your bank balance beforehand, because the price of admission is a heart stopping £4,254 inc vat.

Posted by: STAFF
Plugging the gap between the U3 and the U7 and aptly named, the Xonar U5 USB soundcard comes in priced competitively at a notch below the U7 at around £65. Primarily aimed at audio starved laptop gamers, the U5 comes packed with features set to bolster the output of anyone needing that little bit more in audio fidelity.

     Mon, Dec 29 2014 | 2:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Luxa2 E-One headset is a nice addition to my desk. I have seen many computer cases boasting a headset holder, but I find the Luxa2 E-One makes it much easier to access my headset while sitting at my desk, being that it is on my desktop."

GIGABYTE Force H3X Review
     Mon, Dec 29 2014 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Force H3X that we have today is a stereo headset powered by 50mm drivers that connects via 3.5mm jack. To top it off it lands right in the nuclear warzone price bracket of gaming headsets, £60-70 ($100 USD). This means that it needs to be good as there are many good and exceptional headsets already available.

Grace Digital 3play Bluetooth Audio Receiver Review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 9:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I’ve reviewed Bluetooth streaming devices before, both that are used for headsets and specifically for using with speakers, they can all be used for both of course though. Anyway, the one common thing between them is that you can only use one device at a time with them but Grace Digital has come up with something different called the 3Play which allows you to connect three different devices at the same time via Bluetooth and switch between them automatically. For example you and two friends could connect your phones and you could all take turns playing music through your speakers thus allowing you to share your music. The 3Play works and it’s a unique device that I found useful and fun. Read on to learn more…"

     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I dropped these on my head, the first thing I noticed was the self-adjusting headband. I didn't have to adjust or tweak anything and I love it! It works and feels great. It's very comfortable and is easy on your head as it doesn't clamp down on your ears.

ASUS STRIX Pro gaming headset review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 1:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS are the largest motherboard manufacturer on the planet. Within their portfolio they also produce graphics cards, chassis, laptops and a wide range of peripherals. Many of these peripherals are grouped together under their Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand – but not the one we are looking at today. Breaking new ground and starting its own collective of gaming peripherals is the STRIX Pro headset. This is the first time we have looked at a STRIX product – a sub brand of the parent company … designed to sell alongside and compliment the existing ROG range of products.

CCAT Kave XTD Stereo Gaming Headset Review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ROCCAT is not a newcomer in terms of producing quality gaming headsets. A variety of ROCCAT gaming headset models, which includes the in-ear variety, are currently available. The current addition to the stable, the ROCCAT Kave XTD Stereo Gaming Headset, is regarded by ROCCAT as possessing the, “highest quality sound experience gamers can engage in.” Considering that these Kave XTD Stereo Gaming Headsets are equipped with 50mm neodymium speaker units in each ear cup, that statement is within the realm of possibility.

Tt eSPORTS CRONOS Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 2:18A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
August is without doubt the hottest month of the year where i live but this year things got even hotter since during the past 10 days we witnessed the introduction of the redux versions of Metro 2033 and Metro last light, the closed beta of The Crew by Ubisoft and the latest alpha version of Star Citizen by Cloud Imperium (Chris Roberts). So as I’m sure you can all understand we took this great opportunity to test several game peripherals we have here ranging from gaming mice and mousepads to gaming keyboards, headsets and even 4k resolution gaming LCD screens (upcoming reviews). A while back Tt eSPORTS launched the CRONOS a rather unique looking stereo gaming headset aimed towards casual users and gamers on a tight budget and as you can see from the title today we are going to take a closer look at it.

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.

Posted by: STAFF
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.

     Thu, Dec 25 2014 | 8:18A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Luna Eclipse 2.0 speaker system takes part of the Edifier Image product section, which implies a stylish and unique design.

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.
