ROCCAT Kave XTD 5.1 Headset Review
     Mon, May 05 2014 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“ROCCAT has released the Kave XTD 5.1 headset. The XTD 5.1 model features 40mm rear and front drivers, thick padded ear cushions and an adjustable headband. The 40mm drivers are complimented by a detachable flexible microphone and the headset is compatible with PCs. ROCCAT didn’t stop there though; they went beyond gamers expectations by integrating the ability of pairing your headset with your mobile device via Bluetooth Technology as well as the ability to transfer sound to a normal speaker system for media meant to be heard by everyone.”

BitFenix FLO Headset Review
     Sun, May 04 2014 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I confess that I went in to this not expecting all that much. First off, the Flo is labeled as a “gaming headset”. That typically translates to overemphasized muddy bass, spikes from 2-5khz, relatively no warmth or natural feeling, and a brittle sound that causes incredible listener fatigue with any use other than gaming. Next, it was a “gaming headset” from a case manufacturer, and their first foray into audio."

Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Four Gaming Headset Review
     Sun, May 04 2014 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve got something pretty special in the eTeknix office today, the latest headset from Turtle Beach and our very first review of an Xbox One peripheral. I’ve not had much joy from the console its self over the last couple of month, but one thing I have hated most of all is the lack of great headsets, or at least headsets that I like using. Hopefully the new headset from Turtle Beach can resolve this. Gaming is big business and competitive gaming is right at the heart of it for many of us, be that eSports or just teaming up with a few friends for a couple of rounds on Battlefield on an evening. Nothing will improve your game more than practice, but having the right peripherals for the job can massively improve the quality of your experience, or at least give you an extra edge over your opponents. A good quality headset can be an immersive experience and being able to clearly communicate with your team mates is often vital when playing competitively. With prices ranging from £75- £100 from the XO Four headset, it’s certainly not a budget solution, so I’ll be looking for a good standard of build quality, performance and plenty of features

ROCCAT Kave XTD 5.1 Digital Gaming Headset Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, May 04 2014 | 2:05A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A headset of any kind is a very important accessory for your PC. Whether you are gaming or simply listening to music a headset allows you to immerse yourself in what you are doing on your PC. ROCCATs original Kave 5.1 headset was a huge hit and their mission with the new Kave XTD 5.1 Digital was to rebuild the successful headset from the ground up. One thing that really sets this headset apart from others is the desktop remote, which acts as an audio command center for your PC. Will this be the best headset we have seen all year? Read on as we find out."

X2 SATURN 5.1 HD Gaming Audio Headset
     Fri, May 02 2014 | 4:50P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you happen to live alone the best and ideal scenario for you to enjoy all the latest movies and game titles is to use a powerful surround sound speaker system since nothing can really beat the positional audio offered by such a setup. Unfortunately the harsh reality is that not everyone lives alone thus making it extremely hard not to own such a system but rather to use it at will especially if you like to crank the volume all the way up. Manufacturers are well aware of that issue and so their answer are the well-known 5.1/7.1 virtual and real surround sound headsets which not only offer sufficient positioning audio for most people but they also save you from the trouble of using a separate microphone with which you can communicate with your friends when participating in online games. Till today however one could only find 5.1/7.2 virtual surround sound headsets in the market at a bargain price. Well X2 seems dedicated to change that and so today we will be taking a closer look at their brand new SATURN 5.1 HD Gaming Audio 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.
