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.”

Corsair Gaming Void Surround Headset review
     Thu, Feb 25 2016 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On paper the new Corsair Void 7.1 surround sound headset looks good. It comprises a unified 3.5mm connector, a 7.1 surround USB adapter and high-quality neodymium drivers – all backed up by the fantastic Corsair Utility software. They have even built in memory foam in the headband and earcup padding.

Corsair Void Surround Hybrid Gaming Headset Review

Posted by: STAFF
Corsair blew us away with their new Void gaming headsets, offering exceptional performance, comfort, style and very competitive prices that have made them an instant success with gamers around the world. Now Corsair is back again with their latest model, the Corsair Void Surround Hybrid Gaming Headset and if it’s anything like their Void USB Dolby 7.1 RGB, Void RGB Wireless 7.1 or their Void 3.5mm Stereo , we’re going to be in for a real treat with their latest.

Corsair VOID Surround Gaming Headset Review
     Thu, Feb 25 2016 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"VOID Surround does retain the overall look of its older brothers, but at the same time tries to combine the benefits of the USB and stereo headsets in one: the mobile-compatible connector was designed to work with PS4, Xbox One and other mobile devices like smartphones or tablets; we do not need to worry if we have a poor CODEC on our PC since Corsair does include a compact USB sound card which is also able to provide genuine Dolby Surround effects."

Quality headsets are ten a penny
     Thu, Feb 25 2016 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quality headsets are ten a penny these past few years, or more accurately, ten for several hundred quid – they may be a popular growth industry, but they generally don’t come cheap. Corsair recently stepped up its game with the Void series of headphone/microphone combinations and while not extremely affordable, they’re hardly the most expensive available either. However, they do come with much to recommend them, as we found out after testing them both in practice and when attached to our audio quality analysing equipment. As they’re available in stereo as well as surround and both wired and wireless, we figured it’d be easier to just test the lot and let readers pick their favourite.

Corsair Gaming VOID Hybrid Surround

Posted by: STAFF
We review the new Corsair Gaming VOID Surround Dolby headset. The Dolby certified VOID is another model in the Corsair gaming series and both through a mini-jack (for usage on your phone or console as well comes with a USB adapter for the PC, which when used allows for Dolby Surround 7.1 (virtualized) gaming. All that is based on the all familiar and trusty 50mm neodymium drivers and the Corsair CUE software suite.

SVS Prime Tower Surround Package
     Wed, Feb 24 2016 | 11:29A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SVS is best known for subwoofers that provide outstanding value for money, but today we are going to look at, er… listen to their $1550/£1300 Prime Tower Surround home theater speaker package. Two Prime Towers ($1000/£819), two Prime Satellites ($270/£219), and one Prime Center ($350/£289) are included in the kit. This shaves around $120/£27 off the à la carte price. A few steps closer to a bargain and puts it off to a good start. But, none of that will matter if the kit does not sound and look, the way a mid-range speaker kit should. Let’s dig in.

Corsair VOID Surround Gaming Headset Review
     Tue, Feb 23 2016 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A non-RGB headset was notably absent when Corsair announced and later launched its new lineup of VOID gaming headsets late last year. Today we’re taking a look at the VOID Surround which serves as the more appropriate successor to the Corsair Gaming H1500 USB headset, but with something new and different to improve device compatibility. Read on to see how it performs!

Monster 24K Bluetooth Superstar Backfloat
     Mon, Feb 22 2016 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Monster 24K speaker is known for its ability to float backside down and provide entertainment whilst enjoying a dip in the pool or an outright pool party. This is a very crowd pleasing feature and works very well as a show off piece. It is also waterproof* (minus the underwater pressure crushing the plastic at some specific depth) safe to say a pool party would hardly reach its limitations. Though, probably not the best idea to scuba dive with it as an underwater DJ.

Smanos X300 plug and play alarm system
     Sat, Feb 20 2016 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While a smart home was once thought the preserve of the uber rich today with wireless apps and plug-in security systems, anyone can have a connected household. All you need is something like the Smanos X300 Plug and Play Alarm system, which bundles a motion sensor, door sensor and a remote control for simple access, with a fully functioning app. Detect intruders as soon as they step into your home, get an alert when your child opens their bedroom door – or keep an eye on how often your pet leaves its bed in a given time period – there are plenty of uses for a smart home alarm system.

Kinivo URBN Bluetooth Headphones
     Thu, Feb 18 2016 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to headphones there are two types of people typically, those we prefer in-ear headphones (earbuds) and those who prefer over-ear or on-ear headphones. When it comes to selecting a pair of on-ear headphones you definitely want them to be comfortable and sound good, but at the same time you want them to look good as well. The Bluetooth headphones we are taking a look at today look pretty awesome, so hopefully they sound good and are comfortable too. The headphones I’m talking about are the Kinivo URBN, which feature 40 mm drivers, an awesome carrying case, a load of controls, and much more. Let’s take a look and see what the URBN headphones are all about."

Thrustmaster Y-280CPX Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Feb 17 2016 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you could already see in some tests here at OCinside, Thrustmaster has a very lucky hand when it comes to gaming peripherals of all kinds. The T500RS racing wheel or the specialized Hotas Warthog, everything has a high value and convinced us. Today, Thrustmaster sends something to us, many users do not have on their radar. The parent company Guillemot produced under the brand name Hercules already for many years DJ or PC audio technology. And so we want to present you the Thrustmaster 280CPX. Shooting star or just poor dog? We will find out on OCinside.de.

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.
