Incipio f38 Headset @ Techreaction.net
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:25A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Incipio has sent us their first take on headsets as they break into the audio market. The f38`s come with a standard 3.5mm audio jack which also has a ¼? adapter to allow you to use your f38 headphones on almost anything that?s hot on the market now. The Incipio f38`s are powered by a 38mm neodymium driver. The f38`s come with synthetic leather ear cups and headband that should help with comfort during prolonged use. The f38`s also come with an adjustable steel wire headband to fit almost everyone. However, after we buttered you up with the intro, we still need to test and see if this headset is worth the synthetic leather used on it, read on ?"

Logitech Wireless Headset F540 Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:25A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Logitech is a brand that virtually every computer user and PC gamer knows and associates with quality products. While Logitech has a stronghold in the PC gaming market, their share in the console world is a bit smaller. The Wireless Headset F540 is ready to change that. The F540 is equipped to deliver game and voice audio wirelessly for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Featuring independent volume controls, 40mm laser-tuned drivers, audio inputs for up to three sources, a rechargeable battery, and great sound, the F540 aims to give console gamers a taste of what Logitech has provided PC gamers with for years."

Satechi Audio Move SD Portable MP3 Player Stereo Speaker System @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Mar 10 2012 | 4:55P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When is a pair of speakers not just a pair of speakers? When it?s the Audio Move SD from Satechi! Today for review I have the Audio Move SD which is a small portable speaker unit that can be used with anything that has a standard audio jack. It works very well as a speaker, but that?s not all it is as it?s an MP3 player too. Yes you can use the Audio Move SD as a stand alone MP3 player, just put your music on a microSD card and then insert it into the Audio Move SD and just hit play. So read on for a quick review of an interesting little gadget? "

Corsair Vengeance 1300 Headset Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 9:29A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair first entered the gaming-grade headset market with the HS1, a digital model we already tested. Now they put on the market the Vengeance line, comprised of an analog model (the 1300) and its digital equivalent (the 1500). We will test the Vengeance 1300, beginning with a look at its physical characteristics and then proceeding to its performance."

Android App Pick - TuneIn Radio Pro - BCCHardware
     Wed, Mar 07 2012 | 1:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up our 22th App Pick of the Week and this time we get our groove on with TuneIn Radio Pro.  If you missed the $0.10 App Week, this app will set you back $0.99, but it`s totally worth it.  The Pro version adds a bunch of great features including rewinding, recording, pausing and more.  Check it out and if you can`t afford the Pro version, there is an ad-based version available as well - with less features."

'DCS-1130 Missing Features
     Thu, Mar 01 2012 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If our readers are anything like me, they like to keep their devices up to date with the latest firmware. Typically, this is either to fix some bugs that have been found or to introduce some new features to a product. With that said, it is also normal for a company to distribute a changelog which indicates either what changes have been made or what features have been added.

Griffin Woogie 2 @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Feb 27 2012 | 4:42P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I got a Woogie! Do you? You should have one if you?ve got small children, they?re just the greatest! Seriously though today for review I?ve got the Woogie 2 from Griffin. What?s a Woogie you might ask, well the best description is that it?s an interactive case for your iPhone or iPod. The Woogie 2 is basically a stuff animal that?s cute and cuddly and has a space in it that can hold your iPod or iPhone. Read on? "

ARCTIC Audio Relay - DLNA Audio Renderer Review @MissingRemote
     Mon, Feb 27 2012 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
My first exposure to DLNA devices was lacking. It was the clunky standard that everyone ?supported? in their own way, but no one really did well enough to call ?working?. Fortunately it has slowly evolved on both the device and software layers to the place we are today, where DLNA is actually useful for many things like control and media playback on our TVs and mobile devices. The standard still requires some growth (mostly around synchronized playback) to take over the whole home audio space, but where that is not a requirement audio Digital Media Renderers (DMR) like the $132.60 ARCTIC Audio Relay we will review today can provide an excellent solution to single point music distribution within the home. *"

ROCCAT Kave 5.1 Gaming Headset @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Feb 27 2012 | 8:58A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ROCCAT Kave 5.1 is the name of a new surround sound headset. The headset features a few new features and a USB powered amplifier that allows for easy control of the surround capabilities. We take the headset for a spin to see if ROCCAT managed to avoide the pitfalls commonly associated with 5.1 headset designs."

ASUS Xonar U3 USB Sound Card @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 4:33P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`ve decided it is due time to finally time to do away with the onboard audio on your mobile computer, wanting something that makes your music collection worth listening to, then you can turn to ASUS for that as well. The Xonar U3 is a compact USB sound card, not much bigger than a flash drive. The goal is to provide a product for the person who is constantly on the go, loves to listen to their music, but isn`t going to settle for the integrated solution any longer. So exactly how good can such a tiny device actually be, can it really deliver anything close to what a larger sibling Xonar can? We plan to answer that, so sit back and dive in!"

ROCCAT Kave 5.1 Headset Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 1:21P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Roccat Kave 5.1 surround headphones have all the features that anyone should need. The Kave 5.1 surround gaming headset, from Roccat, has a removable microphone that rotates 360°, three speakers in each cup, for true 3D surround sound, as well as an adjustable base speaker that vibrates for some extra added immersive gaming. Roccat`s Kave 5.1 speakers operate on a frequency from 20~20,000Hz and are 40mms in size. The vibrating driver units operate from 20~100Hz and are only 30mm in size. Roccat`s removable Mic has sound canceling features, runs from 20~18000Hz and is Omni-directional.///"

ARCTIC P531 5.1 Headset @ TestFreaks
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 11:09A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Headphones are great for gaming and watching movies when you need to be quiet. I?ve got small children and I like to watch movies and play games at night time, late at night, and my kids need to sleep. What I have for review today very much helps me accomplish that and more of course. I?ve got the ARCTIC P531 5.1 Headset for gamers for review today, these feature a USB connection and not actual audio connections which I think makes life easier and. Having the USB connection allows you to just plug it into a front port, but if you don?t have a motherboard equipped with surround sound it doesn?t mater as the P531 headset has a built-in digital sound processor. This headset is for gamers so as you might expect it has a microphone and a lot of padding for comfort so they can be worn for long periods of time. "
