Head-Direct HE-400 Planar Magnetic Headphones @ techPowerUp
     Sun, Apr 15 2012 | 11:46A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Head-Direct`s latest addition to the HE-line of headphones is the much anticipated HE-400. The HE-400 sells for only $400 which is quite low for a high-end set of planar magnetic headphones. We take them for a spin to see how they compare to both planar magnetic and dynamic headphones"

'Review: USB 3.0 to HDMI & VGA
     Wed, Apr 11 2012 | 1:43P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you are on the go, sometimes having the multimedia connectivity you want isn't always available to you. When I travel, I like to bring my laptop with me wherever I go and there is nothing better than sitting in a hotel room late at night with my laptop hooked up to their TV watching the movies I bring with me. There has also been plenty of times when I tried to sync three different videos running to three different TV's for a presentation booth. Unfortunately, my work laptop does not have an HDMI port built-in, and I hate traveling with more than one laptop. Luckily, StarTech has a solution that they think can give me the ability to travel light and connect my work laptop to any to type of monitor/TV.

Jaybird JF3 Freedom Bluetooth Wireless Headphones @ TestFreaks
     Wed, Apr 11 2012 | 10:05A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I have a unique set of Bluetooth headphones, the Jaybird JF3 Freedom. These are made for active people and they?re actually the official headphones of the USA Triathlon Team, so that right there should tell you something about them. The JF3 Freedom headphones are meant to be used while running or working out, they?re specifically designed with an active lifestyle in mind. These headphones are sealed to keep moisture out and even come with a lifetime warranty against sweat. In my time with them I?ve come to like them as a very good sounding set of headphones for listening to audio with. They do have a built-in microphone for making and receiving calls but I think that?s a secondary function as that?s not a feature you?ll want to use often?. "

Aperion Audio Zona Wireless Speaker System Review @MissingRemote
     Tue, Apr 10 2012 | 12:41P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The prospect of wiring surround or multi-zone loudspeakers is often fraught with difficulty and may be a job best left to someone who can open up walls, fish speaker wire and install a wallplate with wire terminals. Instead of hiring a costly contractor or spending several hours and dollars in parts, Aperion Audio presents the Zona Wireless Speaker System which promises to lift the burden of wires from us. After our positive experience with Aperion Audio?s Intimus 4T speakers, our interest in Aperion Audio?s wireless solution was piqued. *"

Auna PS-7801 Wireless Speaker System Review - XSReviews
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:19A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The idea behind the Auna PS-7801s is a sound one -- plug the transmitter into your hi-fi, MP3 player or PC, then use the speakers wirelessly up to 100 metres away. Admittedly at that range you`ll be in a bit of a fix if you want to change tracks, but whatever, we`ll go with it. With down-firing subwoofers, integrated handles and some very PC gamer blue LED lighting, the Auna PS-7801s could be a big hit if they live up to their promise of power and portability. Let`s have a closer look and find out. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Sennheiser IE60 Earphones
     Thu, Apr 05 2012 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With plenty of praise from editorial reviewers and everyday audiophiles for their previous generation IE6 and IE8 in-ear headphone models, Sennheiser has a tall order to fill with their next-gen IE60 and IE80 in-ear headphones. After a few weeks of living with the IE60 as my main listening companion, how does it stack up to competitors in the $200+ price range? Read on to find out."

Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes i recall of a period when you could really have a hard time finding a nice Bluetooth earpiece to go with your brand new Bluetooth compatible cellular phone and so your only real choices were pretty much units manufactured by the same company as your phone.

SteelSeries Diablo III Mouse Review
     Mon, Apr 02 2012 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mouse has really come a long way since the first optical and laser units made their appearance roughly almost a decade ago and so today the entire market is flooded with both wired and wireless units targeted towards not only casual users but also enthusiasts and gamers alike. Compared to everyday mice the gaming variants tend to sport higher DPI resolutions for more speed and accuracy, faster polling rates, lighting effects and of course lots of buttons which sometimes also happen to be a lot more durable than the ones on normal units. What we don't usually see however are gaming mice manufactured with specific games in mind and also targeted towards specific gamer groups loyal to those titles. The Diablo III mouse is one such product and we have it here with us today to see what all of you Diablo fans can expect from it.
