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."

CM Storm Headset Round-up Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Aug 31 2012 | 9:34A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
/ /The CM Storm Ceres 400 is a stereo gaming headset carrying an MSRP of $39.99. The Ceres 400 is equipped with 40mm drivers for competitive performance and an integrated noise-canceling microphone for clear chat communication over heavy online firefights. The CM Storm Sonuz on the other hand has a pair of massive 53mm drivers for pulse pounding, bass heavy action and a detachable microphone for ergonomic flexibility retailing for $69.99. Representing the top tier in CM Storm`s lineup is the Sirus headset which features true 5.1 surround capability through four independent drivers for the front, center, rear and sub as well as a bundled USB external audio processor which Cooler Master dubs the tactical mixing console, processing independent channels and provides desktop control functions at users` disposal mid-game. All three CM Storm headsets come with a two year warranty and are available worldwide.///"

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.

Acer Aspire TimelineX 4830TG-6808 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Aug 28 2012 | 9:32A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4830TG-6808 is one of the more recent models in the TimelineX fold, a mainstay of the mainstream laptop aisle recognizable by its cobalt blue color and distinguished with some of the best battery life of any laptop line. If the 14-inch AS4830TG-6808 doesn`t have the ultrathin design that is so in vogue right now, it still delivers decent performance and a solid user experience without breaking the bank."

Test: Crucial Ballistix Elite 4x4GB 2000 MHz CL9 revisited on Ivy Bridge @ ocaholic
     Mon, Aug 20 2012 | 2:43P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Very recently, we posted a trilogy featuring memory from Crucials recently refreshed Ballistix series. Before Crucial have massively switched to Micron D9PFJ, they had to resort to other IC makers in order to produce their fast memory. Tonight, we will take a second look at some of their older stuff to judge if going Micron made things any better."

Sharkfin Self-Molding Earbuds Review - XSReviews
     Sat, Aug 18 2012 | 10:38A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like it or not, the headphone brands from big-name artists like Dr Dre, 50 Cent and Ludacris, have opened up a new market for quality sound in headphones and earbuds. However while style and substance are there in varying quantities and they`re great for everyday use or while in a relaxed state, often the bulky designs aren`t perfect for working out with. Even the best earbuds will occasionally fall out, or they`ll get sweaty and slide around; what`s the solution? Apparently it`s this sort of thing: Sharkfin Self-molding Ear Buds. They fit around the earphones and mold to the shape of your ear, holding them in place while resisting sweat and movement. Let`s put these claims to the test. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Phiaton PS 20 Bluetooth Stereo Earphones Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 10:08A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking to cut the cord between your smartphone or laptop then you should certainly give a pair of Bluetooth wireless earbuds a chance. We were shocked how well the Phiaton PS 20 BT earbuds sounded, but then again these were designed from the ground up for music. The bass quality stands out as being exceptional, but you can thank the large 14.3mm drivers for that..."

BitFenix Recon Internet-Connected Fan Controller @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 9:18A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BitFenix has blessed the PC world with many great ideas in their short of existence. The first was the Colossus now that case was definitely different from anything on the market. And then there was one of the features of their cases like the Colossus that was a first and that was the rubberized coating to protect the case. One other idea was they made sleeved cabling very affordable with their Alchemy products. Now they are hitting the market with another product and that is the Recon fan controller. Now, what can be added to a fan controller to make it different from the rest? How about making it capable of c"
