Corsair's Void Surround headset promises universal device compatibility and surround-sound immersion, thanks to an included Dolby 7.1 USB dongle that works with Corsair's CUE software to do its thing.

VOID Surround is a versatile unit
     Mon, Mar 14 2016 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we review Corsair's Void Surround, an analog headset that supports both 3.5" audio and USB connection with a variety of platforms including PC, consoles, and smartphones. Surround sound is enabled via codec in the included USB dongle which also enables USB connectivity for supporting platforms like PC. This means consoles without USB connectivity won't be able to make use of surround audio, but the headset still features a noise-cancelling microphone and microfiber/memory foam earpads for versatility and comfort during use.

The Plantronics RIG 500E is their high-end gaming headset, it incorporates everything from the RIG 500 and RIG 500HD.

Posted by: STAFF
"Bluetooth speakers have become extremely popular over the past few years. They are pretty easy to take with you and provide hours of great music for you and your friends. Today we will be taking a look at Braven’s BRV-1 Bluetooth speaker which is made for the outdoors and should stand up against the elements. It is IPX7 certified waterproof meaning you don’t have to worry about rainfall or it getting splashed, it can even be fully submerged in one meter of water for 30 minutes! Beyond that it has a rugged design so it can take a beating! The speaker will give you 12 hours of playtime and even has a USB port if you want to plug in your device to charge it. Let’s see if the BRV-1 can stand up to the elements!"

Steelseries Siberia 200 Gaming Headset Review
     Mon, Feb 29 2016 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The legendary Steelseries Siberia gaming headset returns, with almost a decade of being one of the most popular headset ranges on the market, SteelSeries are back with their latest edition, the Siberia 200. Following in the footsteps of its predecessors, the iconic design remains mostly unchanged, but that doesn’t mean the headset isn’t still improving with each iteration. If you’ve ever used any of the Siberia headset range over the years, you’ll no doubt know why it has proven so popular, not only with at home gamers, but also a huge portion of the eSports and pro gaming community. The build quality, the comfortable fit, the competitive price and most importantly, the great performance are all just right, but will the latest edition improve or, at least, live up to the standards set by previous models?

G.Skill Ripjaws SV710 7.1 surround sound
     Mon, Feb 29 2016 | 10:30A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fitting a surround sound speaker set up in your home is never easy, which is why headphone solutions are so popular. Not everyone has that space or spare cash so G.Skill is looking to tap into a new market with the Ripjaws SV710 7.1 surround sound gaming headset – the entry level one. With its more budget-conscious focus, the SV710 does not offer the same true-surround sound as with the SR910 7.1 headset we reviewed previously. However that does not mean that this one is feature-lite. It has leatherette cushions; that same solid aluminum frame, along with virtual surround sound capabilities.

IOGear Kaliber Gaming Saga Surround Sound Gaming Headphones
     Sun, Feb 28 2016 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”What takes away from the headphones are the quirks though, and unfortunately they outweigh the pros. The pulsing hiss noise is just too much for me and actually angered me at points to where I had to stop using the headset. I don't know what to contribute that to, but it happens even when I am not plugged into any devices, so it is certainly with the headset itself. Also, the lack of a 3.5mm splitter or adapter will make this headset unusable in its full capacity for a lot of people. I was only able to use it on my Mac computers and consoles without buying an adapter, which should not be needed for a $100 headset. Finally, the short cable really was a deal breaker, as I keep my towers on my floor and had to adjust them to do the review. It was very cumbersome. All in all, as much as I wanted to like these Saga headphones, if I were in the market for a new headset, I would have to pass on this one.”
