Read on to see how well it actually performs.

BitFenix Flo Premium PC Headset Review
     Tue, Aug 26 2014 | 2:51A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in the old days the only people i knew who used full sized closed headphones were either in the music/radio industry or they were audiophiles who just wanted to listen to their favorite tunes without having to worry about what people around them would say (yes usually at very high volume levels). Now well things have changed a lot since people use headphones and headsets for all sorts of things from listening to music while at home or on the road and answering and making calls from their smartphones up to watching movies and playing their favorite games. As a matter of fact the market for headphones and headsets is so large right now that even several PC case manufacturers have decided that they too want a piece of it. One of them is BitFenix and since their PC cases always seem to hit the bulls eye between price and features i hope the same applies for their latest Flo Premium PC Headset."

News: A quick look at Diamonds Xtreme Sound XS71HDU
     Wed, Aug 20 2014 | 12:05P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We love sound cards here at TR, but they don`t fit in every kind of PC. Diamond`s Xtreme Sound XS71HDU serves up the same kinds of features in a tiny USB package suitable for mini-PCs and ultrabooks. We took it for a spin to see if it`s as good as it looks."

Bem Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Band Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, Aug 20 2014 | 11:13A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I first opened this product, I was reminded of my childhood with memories of the watch from Dick Tracy and the watch that Michael Knight wore in Knight Rider to communicate with Kitt. Now I mention these two not to evoke an image of what the speaker band looks like, because as you will see it does not look like those, but the idea behind them, that there would exist something like this, a gadget you can wear that allows you to communicate with others.

Angelbird SSD wrk 512 GB @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Aug 20 2014 | 4:27A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Angelbird is a young solid-state drive manufacturer from Austria. Their new SSD wrk is built on the Silicon Motion SM2246 controller, which delivers good real-life performance in our testing. While a price of $300 for 512 GB won`t shock the market these days, the drive is affordable overall."

Posted by: STAFF
GamesterGear has quite a good headset for the price with its Cruiser P3210, thanks to the rumble effect it features. Read on for Anthony`s full thoughts."

GAMDIAS are tirelessly churning out innovative ideas inspired by Greek mythology to create a distinct and unique brand. From their audio stable we get the HEPHAESTUS gaming headset. God of forge and fire, Hephaestus made the weapons of the Gods, so would that mean the HEPHAESTUS headset is worthy of your monies?"

ROCCAT Kave XTD 5.1 USB Digital Gaming Headset - BCCHardware
     Tue, Aug 19 2014 | 12:49A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As mentioned earlier in this review, the most important part about this new in-line control unit is the fact that it has a built-in 5.1 sound card. The quality of sound that comes from this card is amazing. The first time I used this headset, I was blown away. Not only was I surprised at the sound quality from a USB headset, but I was floored at how far better it was than what I currently had (an analog headset)."

Silicon Power Armor A30 2TB USB 3.0 Hard Drive - BCCHardware
     Mon, Aug 18 2014 | 3:53P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In terms of ruggedness and reliability, Silicon Power does in fact meet and pass the US Military MIL-STD-810G impact tests. Their claim to survive a drop of 300cm hasn`t been validated here at BCCHardware, but Silicon Power doesn`t tell us what they are dropping the drive onto. If they drop it onto a stack of pillows, 70`s shag carpet or a batch of kittens, the drive will probably survive the near 10-foot drop."

LUXA2 GroovyW Bluetooth Speaker & Wireless Charging Station Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Aug 18 2014 | 12:05P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Bluetooth wireless speakers have becoming extremely popular over the past couple of years. They can be used with multiple devices and are powerful enough to provide music for an entire room. They are also small enough that you can easily throw them in your backpack or laptop bag. LUXA2 has a new Bluetooth speaker in their GroovyW, but it is not your ordinary Bluetooth speaker. It comes with a removable wireless / wired charging station giving you 4000mAh of extra power for your portable device. The GroovyW also supports NFC for pairing, has touch panel controls, a microphone to take calls and comes with a companion App for both iOS and Android."

Attitude One is a new player on the gaming scene, and today, we take a close look at their first headset, the Almaz. The Almaz can be configured to act as either a headphone or headset because of its detachable microphone and multiple cables.

The UE BOOM was one of the first bluetooth speakers that wowed us. Today, we take a look at the newest revision of the BOOM. It features much improved firmware, allows you to customize its start-up sound, and comes with a bigger bundle.

Sennheiser HD-8 DJ Headphone Review
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 12:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Perhaps one of the candidates for the most popular headphones of all time could be the Sennheiser HD-25's which were first released in 1988 and can still be found today, although in a more contemporary design. Many would claim these to be the most likely runaway winner and, if popularity alone through time is any indication, we would have to agree. Sennheiser has now released the successor to the HD-25 in the HD-8 DJ and, if you are a media professional who spends hours on end with a set of headphones on your head, these definitely merit a close look. A word to the wise though, the HD-8 DJs forge new ideas on just what professional headphones should be, no doubt the years of advise provided DJ’s and studio professionals.

Bayan Audio Soundbook X3 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Review
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Who is Bayan Audio? Back in 2011, an UK-based company started that had the sole intent of creating high quality products that produce phenomenal sound out of natural materials, that you can take with you wherever you may go. You may recognize them from a previous report we did a few weeks back, when we took a look at the Bayan Audio Soundbook Wireless Bluetooth Speaker. Today, we have the privilege of taking a bigger and better look at the Bayan Audio Soundbook X3, the big brother to the previously reported Soundbook. One thing to keep in mind before we dig into the X3, is that we are looking at a wireless bluetooth speaker. More often then not, you ‘get what you pay for’ when it comes to wireless bluetooth speakers. The cheaper wireless speakers are typically comprised of a lower grade material, which will further inhibit the performance of the speaker, but the opposite also remains true. What really impresses us is when a company creates a product that is not only of high quality, but doesn’t break your bank as well.
