Microlab MD212 Bluetooth Portable Speaker Review
     Fri, Nov 08 2013 | 4:35P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microlab has been producing audio products since 1998 and has earned a solid reputation for quality and dependability in the process. Recently, Benchmark Reviews had the opportunity to take a closer look at one of the recent additions to its lineup, the Microlab MD212 Portable Speaker, which targets those individuals that are in need of a portable and lightweight Bluetooth solution. The Microlab MD212 is definitely portable and lightweight, yet it has a number of other attractive features that make it a serious contender among the other diminutive Bluetooth devices on the market."

V-MODA CrossFade M-100 Noise Isolating Headphones Review
     Fri, Nov 08 2013 | 1:11P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To get the most out of the CrossFade M-100 Headphones you will be wise to also invest in a headphone amplifier. The sound output from today?s smartphones might be enough to crap out your average best buy $10 headphones, but it just isn?t enough to get a truly satisfactory experience on a higher quality set of headphones let alone the CrossFade M100?s. A lot of attention has quite rightly been given to sound quality and performance with equal attention also given to build quality and style. Don?t get me wrong, the experience is not disappointing by any means, I just need to point out that the dual-diaphragm 50mm drivers inside the CrossFade M-100 Headphones are so much more capable than you may think."

ASUS Xonar U7 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Nov 08 2013 | 11:21A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Till recently, the only available audio processing via USB from the Xonar camp was the lightweight U3, or the ultra-high end Xonar Essence DACs that require the sale of essential body parts and organs to afford. The Xonar U7 offers 7.1 surround sound, S/PDIF out and a headphone amp for maximum versatility in a lightweight and compact case."

Logitech G430 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
     Fri, Nov 08 2013 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What happens when you have a large number of products to be reviewed around and you suddenly receive a large box containing two of the most anticipated PC game titles of 2013? Now as expected we usually place all products in a line based on the when we received each one so we can be fair to every manufacturer out there. However we do make some exceptions due to certain events and so since we recently received Batman Arkham Origins and Battlefield 4 naturally we wanted to enjoy them as much as possible and the only possible way to do that was to place priority on certain gaming peripherals which is exactly what we did in the end. Of course combining business with pleasure is not the easiest thing but it`s better than just business so for the past 7 days we`ve been focusing in testing gaming peripherals. So since we all know how important it is for game immersion to have good and clear audio today we will be taking a closer look at the latest 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound Headset by Logitech the G430."

Motorola S10-HD Bluetooth Headset Review
     Fri, Nov 08 2013 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There’s nothing worse than yanking your laptop off the table as you stand up or pulling the headphones right out of your ears when they get caught on something. Mobility has become a major focus for everyone, and bluetooth technology has been at the center of it, many devices and products having some sort of wireless alternative. The Motorola S10-HD is one such product, an “entry level” bluetooth headset for any consumer interested in wireless technology. The S10-HD is an in ear, bluetooth headset designed for mobility and being on the go. They are designed to be sweat proof, which is more than useful to anyone who runs consistently. And if you just so happen to run long distance and need headphones with a good amount of battery life, the S10-HD’s have a listed, and verified, 8 hours of continuous play time. I’ve gone entire days, using these headphones on and off, without having to plug them in for a recharge (which is great for lazy student me.)

It offers up to twice the range of standard Bluetooth adapters, which is possible because of the high gain antenna, high power Bluetooth amplifiers & the latest Bluetooth technology. This is an affordable solution, that's easy to setup and compatible with any Bluetooth device. It's a must have product!" ~3dGameMan.com

HiFiMAN RE-600 In-ears @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Nov 06 2013 | 1:06P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HiFiMAN`s newest high-end in-ear gets put to the test. The RE-600s are a beefed up version of the RE-400s we loved. The price has also been hiked up to $399, making it just as expensive as several great in-ears, like the UE900s. We test the RE-600s to find out whether the asking price is justified!"

Posted by: STAFF
The flavor of multiplayer games over the years has changed, but team communication has remained a staple.

On the 5Hv3 box, SteelSeries proudly associates itself with four accomplished esport organizations: Na?Vi, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Tyloo, and Fnatic."

Posted by: STAFF
"Have you ever been on a game winning streak, or near an all time high score and your phone rings? Do you answer it, or keep going?

Imagine if you could hear and talk to your incoming calls without having to take off your gaming headset. Well, imagine no longer. The Plantronics RIG Gaming Headset is exactly what you need."
