Elements Bluetooth Over-ear Wireless Headphones Review
     Wed, Oct 05 2016 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Monster might not be a company that you are particularly well versed in as a hardcore KitGuru gamer/hardware enthusiast, but it is one you should hear more of in the future. Quite literally because it produces high end headphones. The Elements are Bluetooth connected and are designed to offer a more full sounding experience than the likes of Apple’s recent Airpod design.

HyperX Cloud Revolver Gaming Headset
     Mon, Oct 03 2016 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HyperX Cloud Revolver is a high end stereo headset that can be used with just about any device thanks to its use of the 3.5mm audio jack... sorry iPhone 7 users. The closed, over the ear design with 50mm drivers creates a studio-grade sound stage, which allows you to better locate an opponent if you're playing a FPS game. And if you are listening to music it allows you to hear things you didn't before.

OPPO F1s Selfie Expert Smartphone Review.
     Sat, Oct 01 2016 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How did OPPO become the top smartphone brand in China? Their latest smartphone - the OPPO F1s, may reveal the secret to their success. Let's take a look...

FIIL Wireless Headset Review
     Fri, Sep 30 2016 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This headset comes with quite a bit of new technologies like Bluetooth V4.1 support, ANC, capacitive controls right on the headset cups but also integrates NFC, can operate in both wired and wireless modes, while the necessary cables are offered for both Android and iOS platforms. The headset is ready for taking calls, navigating through music players, can be connected to two Bluetooth devices at the same time, while the integrated 570mAh battery allows quite a bit of usage during a single charge. The supplied FIIL+ application completes the product by offering easy switch for ANC mode, different EQ presets but also simulated 3D surround effects for different environments."

Monster Fatal1ty FxM 200 Headset @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Sep 29 2016 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not everyone who plays games is into e-sports, but there is a large following for e-sports in general, especially a few of the most popular games. Payouts are in the millions of dollars and players are starting to become household names. None of today's players though have found the universal success that Fata1ty has. Fatal1ty paved the way for today's players, won twelve world championship titles, was profiled on MTV’s True Life TV show, and he created his own brand of products. Thorin did a great video covering it all earlier this year. Johnathan Wendel managed to transition huge success across multiple games into a brand. Over the years we have seen a wide variety of products including motherboards, ram, PSUs, and headsets. I actually think a lot of today's gamer crowd may even know him more as that brand than anything else. The reason for the history lesson today is because this past CES Fatal1ty and Monster announced a partnership to bring out new headsets and for a while now I’ve actually had the new Fatal1ty FxM 200 here in the office to test out. So today I’m going to take a closer look at it and see how it performed.

the FXM 100 headphones
     Mon, Sep 26 2016 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Comparing the FXM 100 headphones to recently reviewed headsets I found that these produced a deeper and more lively sound than Corsair’s $79 VOID headset with 2-channel sound - though VOID has the advantage of simulated 7.1-channel Dolby surround effects from its included USB adapter. The Logitech G633 still has the edge in overall sound (and also offers 7.1 surround effects), but even at its recently reduced price is still $30 more at $99. I think the FXM 100's $69.95 price is fair, but if the price drops at all they will be a more compelling option."

Creative Aurvana ANC Headset Review
     Thu, Sep 22 2016 | 11:47A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Right after installing the battery inside the Aurvana ANC, we wanted to check out the noise cancelling feature, so without having it connected to any audio source, we put the headset on; with the feature turned off, we could hear a low level of background noise coming in both ears but with the noise cancelling on, that noise was completely gone, which is quite impressive."

Corsair VOID Surround Headset Review
     Tue, Sep 20 2016 | 11:32A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair VOID Surround Gaming-Headset arrived Technic3D. "Purpose built for legendary audio, ultimate comfort, and universal compatibility, the Corsair Gaming VOID Surround Headset features a mobile connector that works with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and mobile devices?" We will check this and many more in the following Review."

Sennheiser PC 373D 7.1 Dolby Surround
     Tue, Sep 20 2016 | 11:22A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sennheiser PC 373D Gaming Headset Review Is this email not displaying correctly? View it in your browser. Sennheiser PC 373D 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound Gaming Headset Review Sennheiser is often considered more of an audiophile brand rather than one catering to movie and gaming fans, but that is not always the case. Take the new Sennheiser PC 373D 7.1 Dolby surround sound headset that we are looking at today. It has everything that other gaming headsets have: solid drivers, great padding, surround sound audio and strong microphone clarity.

OCZ VX500 512 GB
     Sat, Sep 17 2016 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ's new VX500 SSD is built around a Toshiba controller paired with Toshiba 15 nanometer MLC flash chips. The drive offers excellent performance at even better pricing, making it a great candidate if you want to stay away from TLC drives but don't want to break the bank.

OZONE TriFX In-Ear Pro Gaming Headset Review
     Fri, Sep 16 2016 | 12:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Can the TriFX in-ear pro gaming headset by OZONE gaming with its anodized aluminum enclosures and 3 interchangeable EQ enhancers make a difference in a market filled with similar products?

Creative iRoar + iRoar Rock Review
     Tue, Sep 13 2016 | 1:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For that little extra thumping power, the iRoar can be docked in an iRoar Rock. The iRoar Rock is a 3.75" sub-woofer that expands the audio presence into a powerhouse of a sound system while fast-charging the iRoar. More interestingly Creative have more planned for the future in regards to companion devices for the iRoar and are working on a DDK (Docking Development Kit), potentially making the 'most intelligent speaker on the planet' also one of the most expandable and customisable.

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 Review
     Fri, Sep 09 2016 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With its experience from the past, Creative has managed to build an excellent multi-function device which can be also used in almost any situation where audio content is involved. We’ve got a built-in voice recorder, a built-in MP3 player, one speakerphone, a battery bank and an USB Sound Blaster incorporated with the Roar 2, which does also have many other configuration options available via software."

Teufel Concept E 450 Digital 5.1 Sound System Review
     Thu, Sep 08 2016 | 12:06P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the old days there were the 5.1 sound systems from Cambridge Soundworks that brought the surround sound to the gamers. Later Logitech published i.a. the legendary Z5500 Digital System and so not only taught the postman to fear. For the past 36 years, there is also the manufacturer Teufel (devil) who has brought this new 5.1 speaker system to the market. Whether the Teufel Concept E450 Digital 5.1 speaker set can be described justifiably as devilish and scare neighbors or has just sagging horns, we clarify in the following review.

LucidSound LS-30 Wireless Universal Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Sep 07 2016 | 2:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the LS30 Wireless Universal Gaming Headset LucidSound has released one of the top all-around models in the market today and since this is their first attempt we're very interested to see what they have in store for the future.

     Wed, Sep 07 2016 | 1:59P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The main selling points found in the IMMERSA headset would be its lightweight design, the large omni-directional earpads for comfort and noise isolation, a retractable microphone, 40mm neodymium drivers, and versatility courtesy of a 4 pole connection and included splitter. At this point you could be forgiven for overlooking the price, something that even we had to look twice at due to the premium appeal and presentation.
