TRITTON PRO+ True 5.1 Surround Headset
     Tue, Feb 11 2014 | 11:36A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
No matter how many times Ive worn a headset either for regular use while at home or on the go or for test purposes i still can`t say that i like the feeling (always compared to speaker systems) but i do recognize that its a necessary technology with more pros than cons. However that being said with so many 5.1 and 7.1 virtual surround sound headset models swarming the market it`s not very easy to locate one that makes use more than just the two typical drivers found in stereo models (many people may not even know of their existence). Quite a few manufacturers have tried their luck with real surround sound headsets but just a handful have actually managed to win the crowds with their superior positioning audio and quality. TRITTON is amongst those brands (perhaps the oldest one still around that focuses solely in the manufacture of gaming headsets) and today we will be taking a very thorough look on their latest PRO+ True 5.1 Surround Headset."

CM Storm Pitch In-Ear Gaming Headset Review
     Sun, Feb 09 2014 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are no shortage of gaming headsets on the market today, but most typically favour the over ear or on ear design. Cooler Master and their gaming brand CM Storm look set to do something a little different and have created a more compact solution with their in-ear Pitch gaming earphones. CM Storm are not the first company to do this of course, in ear gaming headsets are nothing new and companies like Steelseries have similar products on the market, but this is the first product like this from CM Storm. We have high expectation of the Pitch as CM Storm have impressed us in the past with their other gaming audio devices such as the Ceres 300, Ceres 500, Pulse-R, Sirus and Sonus gaming headsets. I’m not expect the same performance as a headset with 40-50mm drivers, but I am expecting a certain level of quality that we’ve come to expect from Cooler Master.

Func HS-260 Gaming Headset Review
     Thu, Feb 06 2014 | 10:07A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On January 27th 2014 Func will start shipping their HS-260 gaming headset, completing a first run of peripherals that started with the MS-3 gaming mouse in February of last year (and the KB-460 mechanical keyboard this past November). Sporting tuned 50mm drivers, detachable audio cables and removable microphone which can switch sides at will, Func brings their focus on functionality to the gaming headset category with their new headset, model FUNC-HS-260-1ST. Benchmark Reviews has a sample on hand, and in this review I?ll do my best to explain my experience with the Func HS-260 gaming headset."

Creative T4 2.1 Wireless Speaker System with NFC Review
     Wed, Feb 05 2014 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The newly released 2.1 speaker set from Creative features a solid subwoofer which has a SLAM architecture and delivers quite a boom and is accompanied by two smaller but high quality satellites which should fit without any issues on our work and entertainment desk or why not, to the sides of our TV. The control pod is very handy and besides that the setup features lots of connectivity options, but also an IR remote.

Func HS-260 Gaming Headset Review @HiTech Legion
     Sun, Feb 02 2014 | 11:36A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Func is making their first foray into the audio end with the HS-260 gaming headset. In true Func fashion, the HS-260 is ergonomically outstanding with a simple, no gimmick approach to high quality audio. The audio design of the HS-260 is aimed squarely at the gamer, yet rather than using drivers that deliver huge spikes at certain frequencies in order to deliver gaming sound, Func took another route. Func employs a 50mm driver in the HS-260 with a near flat frequency response from 20-20k HZ for greater accuracy. /"

Posted by: STAFF
/ /Cooler Master`s foray into the realm of gaming headsets isn`t exactly a new endeavor, but this pair of Ceres 300 is. The Ceres 300 Gaming headset is designed to give you clear team communications during intense gaming and stay comfortable for long term sessions. There`s a 40mm driver for each ear to give you good coverage of the audio spectrum and a removable microphone so you can use them as just a regular headset. /"

     Sun, Feb 02 2014 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MP4Nation has been manufacturing quality budget in-ears for a while, and they hope to take a good chunk of the mid-fi earphone market with the $60 S1s. The S1s use a 10mm driver in a well-designed housing and come with a flat cable, which is neat for people on the go."

SteelSeries Siberia Elite Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Feb 02 2014 | 5:50A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SteelSeries is perhaps a brand that needs little introduction. In-fact, it?s very likely you?ve heard of their name and products through some of your favorite eSports teams SteelSeries sponsors, from other gamers such as your friends or the greater community, or on tech enthusiast sites such as this one. Then, there?s the Siberia V2 which might be SteelSeries?s best known gaming headset in recent time. It was first released in 2009 as SteelSeries new flagship headset and its success spawned numerous colors and related designs including USB and lighted variants. For many long years, the Siberia name was dominated by the Siberia V2 until now. The Siberia Elite is the proud new member to the Siberia family that continues the tradition SteelSeries set forth with the original in 2004. Read on to see how this headset sounds and feels!"

Logitech G35 Gaming Headset Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, Jan 31 2014 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Meanwhile Logitech have quite a selection of gaming headsets in their portfolio, since there is the G230, G430, G35 and G930. Today we`re having a closer look at the G35, which had been release no less than four years ago. We`re rather curious to find out wether this headset is still able to keep up with the vast variety of other headsets that are out ther ein the wild today. Since this particular model features a USB plug, 7.1 Virtual Surround sound and G-Buttons, it might still be up for a good fight with the competition."

Corsair Vengeance 2100 Wireless Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Jan 26 2014 | 12:34P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We?ve saved the best for last?or is it? The Vengeance 2100 headset we?re are looking at represents our last product review of Corsair?s 2013 headset refresh. Amongst the entire collection of five headsets, the Vengeance 2100 fills a premium niche with the most notable feature being its wireless capabilities. There was much to compare between the headsets and we?ll have to see if the Vengeance 2100 sits at the top of what has so far shaped to be an enforced top-to-bottom headset catalog."

Sennheiser CXC 700 Active Noise Canceling Ear-Canal Phones - BCCHardware
     Sun, Jan 26 2014 | 10:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Low-end noise canceling products usually have pretty dismal sound when the electronics are switched off, but Sennheiser`s audio quality remains stellar whether they are powered or not. Even when compared to regular (non-noise canceling) products, the audio quality is on par with the best of them. At the end of the day, these are the best overall sounding earphones I`ve used - and while I`m sure there are much better units available - for the price - and for what they bring to the party, they are pretty hard to beat."

CM Storm Ceres 300 Gaming Headset
     Fri, Jan 24 2014 | 3:06P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Be it a intense FPS or just rocking out and losing track of the world around us, we all rely on audio to carry us away, and budget can greatly factor into sounds quality and comfort when it comes to headsets. Sometimes you might have to sacrifice on or the other to get the deal you want. Cooler Master is trying to hit the middle ground with the Ceres 300 Headset.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
