Arctic Cooling Arctic Sound E 461-BM Earphones Review @ APH
     Fri, Dec 16 2011 | 6:45P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you live in a city as spontaneous as Calgary, you would not be surprised by how fast summer quickly turns to winter. Just a few days ago (More specifically, Halloween), I crawled out of bed being greeted with a small patch of snow. We all know the feeling, waking up praying for it to be a beautiful day, only to find the opposite. For Calgary, however, you tend to prepare for the worst before you hope for the best. Much like summer and winter, the world of audio also has two very different ends of the spectrum. No, I am not talking about good audio equipment versus bad audio equipment ordeal, but more along the lines of how audio equipment is tested. On one end, we have objectivists who rely on technical and engineering information as well as experience to test audio devices. On the other end, we have subjectivists who rely on the careful process of individual listening and time to rate a device`s worth. Which method is more correct? Well, neither. But since we here at APH Networks are Canadian, we tend to think both methods are right to a certain degree, but we do certainly lean more towards the subjectivist`s way of doing things. Is it because we are not comprised of sound engineers? Possibly. But I believe the main reason is, just because you can spout out information regarding the performance of a pair of earphones using the laws of physics, doesn`t necessarily mean the device sounds -- for lack of a better term -- good. Today, we just may or may not have this slippery slope upon our feet. Arctic Cooling`s new Arctic Sound E461-BM may look quite impressive on paper, boasting amazing performance in the linearity of the earphones frequency response, but how do they sound? Itching to hear what I heard? Well, for that, you will need to purchase the earphones. But for now, I can scratch that itch for you if you read on."

C. Vengeance 1500 Gaming Headset Review
     Thu, Dec 15 2011 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At first glance the overall feel of the fit and finish is really nice to hold and wear which is very important for a headset. With good quality plastic and a large padded headband, it`s also clear straight away that the ear cups are going to be comfortable and that the padding is more than enough. Interestingly, the 1500 features the soft fabric ear pads we prefer, while the `lower end` model, the 1300 does not; instead using the faux leather stuff seen everywhere these days. The Vengeance 1500 also features software support including Dolby Headphone which is fantastic. The interface is slick and fast with some nice graphics also being used to give everything a very up to date feel. This software is really the heart of the this package and should be the main selling point given how well it works, yet Corsair do not seem that excited about it for some reason. But to any potential buyer of this headset, just try listening without the software installed and you will see how well it works and frankly is needed to make this a recommended product."

Ferguson Hill FH009 Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk
     Wed, Dec 14 2011 | 4:10P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve got the very stylish and minimalistic Ferguson Hill FH009 speakers to review for you today. You probably know the name Ferguson Hill from their FH001 and FH002 speakers of a similar design, as well as their high price tags. Whilst the FH009 speakers are very expensive, retailing at around £800, both the build and sound quality you receive is just amazing. Let`s take a closer look at them..."

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Shock Spin Gaming Headset Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Dec 11 2011 | 11:18A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake has a new addition to the gamer audio market with the Tt eSPORTS Shock Spin gaming headset. The Shock Spin puts a bit of style in the mundane headset market. Amongst the Shock Spin`s looks are some good features as well. Driving the sound are two neodymium magnet speakers for enhanced performance. There is an optional in line volume controller. Instead of an attached mic on the Shock Spin, it is included separately. For comfort there is an auto adjusting rubber head strap and ergonomic shaped velvet ear cushions. The input is a 3.5mm connector which means it can be used with compatible devices as well as the computer. Thermaltake offers 3 colors; Shining White, Diamond Black, an Royal Red."

Posted by: STAFF
When we reviewed the Philips Fidelio DS3020 back in July, we were very impressed with how clear and crisp the sound quality was, as well as the dynamic bass boost and overall design. Today we have Philips Fidelio DS7700, which offers a much larger speaker due to it being compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and now iPad, but will the performance match up with the DS3020?

Tek-Republic TH Pro Virtual 7.1 Surround Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Nov 30 2011 | 9:08A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tek-Republic is a new company whom we have not dealt with before, so the slate is clean for a great impression to be made! - Based out of California, Tek-Republic are focusing on headsets and gaming mice solutions for now and we like the simple approach to start off with. Out of the three odd headsets already adorning the company`s product line, we received the TH Pro which boasts virtual 7.1 surround sound via software backing, just like many others we have tested recently. Among some of the various attributes featured here within is a noise cancelling Mic, noise-isolating ear pads and an adjustable padded headband. Up to this point everything is looking very much as we would expect it to look for this type of headset. What is going to prove telling is how well the software component is implemented in order to allow a great simulated surround environment to be created."

     Mon, Nov 28 2011 | 10:18A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink

Speakers are typically one of the most ignored pieces of equipment. To the average user the 2.1 system they got for $20 after rebate is good enough but until once you?ve heard the different you?re going to want the rockus! This 2.1 system is not like any another. Drawing 150W in total, you?ll be amazed what the rockus can do"

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.
