Tt eSPORTS Shock Spin Headset
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The microphone has a separate cord and comes detached from the headset. It comes with a clip for your shirt but I found that it is best to keep it clipped to the headset wire located on the left speaker. Although this is a great microphone, The fact that it is detached with a "gaming" headset does not really make sense to me. I would have liked to see a boom or retractable microphone built in. . .

Audyssey Lower East Side Audio Dock Air Review
     Mon, Sep 10 2012 | 4:20P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Perhaps one the most difficult parts of being an avid reviewer is finding new and innovative devices to review, devices which one simply does not get to see often if at all. Nowadays however innovative ideas become more and more rare since pretty much everything one may think of is already out there being developed or manufactured by one of the countless available manufacturers (that`s also why we see the same devices rebranded and sold by two or more different companies). Luckily however innovation has not completely dried out and so every now and then we do get to see something new (sometimes even impressive) and without doubt the latest Lower East Side Audio Dock Air by Audyssey is one such device."

Audyssey Lower East Side Media Speakers
     Mon, Sep 10 2012 | 4:04P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks ago I was in Manhattan for the first time. What I remember most vigorously about my visit to the city is the architecture and how every neighborhood had a uniquely different feel from the rest. What`s Manhattan have to do with Audyssey and multimedia? The speakers I have here today from Audyssey, the Lower East Side Media Speakers, are actually inspired by Manhattan`s lower east side neighborhood. The lower east side is known for it`s rich nightlife and thriving music scene and music bars. Audyssey has pulled inspiration from Manhattans` lower east side into the design of these speakers and has paired that with their legendary audio technology to design a pair of speakers that have left me with high expectations!"

Plantronics GameCom 780 Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews

Posted by: STAFF
The Plantronics GameCom 780 has the best sound reproduction Ive heard from a gaming headset to date. Highs are crisp and clear while lows are deep and throaty. The 40mm drivers do an excellent job of surrounding you in your game or favorite tunes. Overall, the Plantronics GameCom 780 were found to be an amazing headset for under $60 shipped..."

Jabra EXTREME2 Bluetooth Headset Review
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 9:39A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although most smartphones nowadays feature low levels of radiation (also known as SAR) it`s always good to use a Bluetooth wireless earset/headset especially since the law in many countries forbids usage of cellphones when driving without one. Now for all of you that aren`t aware of SAR it stands for Specific Absorption Rate, a method which basically measures the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the human body when using a cellphone. Because this happens most manufacturers recommend holding the phone at a distance of 30mm away from your body when using it so it`s very easy to understand that this isn`t possible without the use of an earset/headset. I know it`s been a while since i last had the chance to test a Bluetooth wireless earset/headset but during my short vacation i had plenty of time to test the latest one from Jabra called the EXTREME2."

I-Mego Walker Junior Headset @ Techreaction.net
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 9:30A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we finally received our sample from I-MEGO, Walker Junior Headphones. They are geared toward travelers. It is engineered to create a comfortable listening environment in areas with high ambient noise. You will have 40mm drivers pushing these headsets to bring you the best quality posible. These headphones feature a miniature microphone in each earpiece that picks up ambient noise, such as traffic or the noisy lady in the seat behind you on the plane. Electronics in used create a noise-canceling wave that is 180 degree out of phase with the ambient noise. This wave acts like a noise eraser and cancels out the annoying sounds that surround you without diminishing the audio you want to hear. Now, lets see how well the Walker Junior headset works in our testing."

X3i Micro Mobile Speakers Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 4:10P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Im back with another quick review for you, of a decent little product. Most MP3 players dont have speakers and most phones has inadequate speakers so whats a person to do? One thing you can do is get a set of external speakers like the X3i Micro Mobile Speakers that I have for review today. These speakers are small and portable, portability is important I think when it comes to devices like this as surely youll take them with you. Sound quality is important as well and these are pretty good and theyre very loud, much louder than youd expect from such small speakers. Overall theyre perfect for what they need to do, but they do have one small flaw I think "

Bayan 7 iPod and iPhone Speaker Dock Review - XSReviews
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 11:52A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I heard about Bayan Audio`s line of iPhone speaker docks some time ago, mentioned in the same breath as Bowers & Wilkins and Bang & Olufsen- well known as quality speaker manufacturers. When the Bayan 7 was released and I had a chance to provide a review of the same, I jumped at the opportunity. The Bayan 7 is the top-of-the-line option from the firm, offering quality at a considerable price -- $450 is a lot for a speaker dock, almost as much as a new iPhone. In order to be worth that high price point, these speakers would have to exhibit flawless audio quality, good usability and a novel and beautiful design. Read on to find out if the Bayan 7 meets my admittedly high standards. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Plantronics BackBeat Go review – musical cord
     Thu, Aug 30 2012 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The sound quality of the Plantronics BackBeat Go isn't great. The highs and mids are good, but the lack of a low-end is poorer than even affordable wired headsets. That doesn't mean there isn't a market for these. The avid runner won't mind a slight sacrifice in sound quality for stable and light headphones. The Bluetooth implementation of the BackBeat Go, including the controls, is very good. Despite the limitations of the sound quality, we can recommend this headset for that particular target audience.
