Kingston’s HyperX brand has always catered towards enthusiasts and gamers, but up until last year it was always tied to the Kingston name. Not too long ago however, Kingston decided to develop HyperX into a separate gaming oriented brand and along with it they also revealed a whole host of new products including gaming headsets, gaming mice, gaming memory and more.
Last year we had the opportunity to test the Kingston HyperX Cloud II Pro gaming headset where we came away very impressed. The headset was among the most comfortable and best sounding gaming headsets on the market and came in at under a $100 pricetag. It quickly became one of our [...]
Several years ago, I reviewed the Creative Sound Blaster ROAR which I awarded with the CPCR Gold Awesome Award. It was an excellent prdouct that was portable, had great battery life, had fantastic sound quality, and could easily fill a room, an outdoor gathering, or a campsite with plenty of music. It checked all the right boxes and quickly became my all time favorite Bluetooth speaker.
While the Creative Sound Blaster ROAR was already quite impressive, Creative has spent the past few years refining their product, which ultimately culminated in the new Creative Sound Blaster ROAR 2, which retains pretty much the entire Sound Blaster [...]
Rarely do I think to myself, “I really wish I had a pair of wireless, portable speakers that I could take with me places.” As you might imagine, I’m not one of those people you sometimes encounter in public, blasting whatever noise they consider to be music from their phones, perfectly clashing with the music playing over the supermarket’s PA system (if I were one of those people, I’d probably go all out and hold my cell phone and two speakers in my hands while simultaneously shopping and annoying everyone within a 20 foot radius of me, but that’s just me…)
As such, I’ve never [...]
When we went to Kingston’s booth at CES 2015 last month, we got a chance to check out a ton of new memory products including new memory, SSDs, memory cards and flash drives. Along with their plethora of memory products, Kingston is also pumping up their peripherals lineup with a new gaming headset and some upcoming gaming mousepads as well.
Today we’ll be reviewing their new gaming headset, the Kingston Cloud II Pro Gaming Headset. Now the first generation Kingston HyperX Cloud headset was a pretty good headset. Although we only got to test the headset at various events, we were fairly impressed with it as it not only [...]
Over the past couple years, I’d have to say that I’ve become pretty impressed with Razer. Despite being a relatively small, privately owned gaming peripherals company, they’ve successfully managed to enter and reinvigorate a number of product markets that have stagnated for a long time. A perfect example of this is the gaming notebook market where Razer not only helped renew and reinvigorate the market, but also spurred development in the industry as a whole.
One market Razer abandoned several years ago is the premium PC gaming speaker market and it looks like they’re ready to finally [...]
Well, it’s that time of year again. The time of year to eat a lot, drink a lot, and be thankful that we get to do another review for Audioengine! Yup. It’s funny how it worked out in the past few years that I’ve done one review every year for Audioengine. In 2012, it was the Audioengine A5+ coupled with the Audioengine D1, last year it was the Audioengine A2+, and with 2014 coming to a close, this year we’ll be checking out the newly released Audioengine B2!
The Audioengine B2 is Audioengine’s latest speaker that combines many of the features of the Audioengine A2+ with the Bluetooth functionality of [...]
Earlier this year at CES 2014, SteelSeries invited us to their suite to check out a couple brand new products they were coming out with. While we were browsing their suite, SteelSeries showed us the new SteelSeries Sensei Wireless Gaming Mouse along with the SteelSeries Stratus Wireless Gaming Controller. While those were interesting products, what really caught our eye was a product they had introduced several months earlier – the SteelSeries Siberia Elite Gaming Headset, which was prominently displayed on one of the display shelves.
Most of you who follow the PC gaming scene in the past decade have probably seen [...]
Wireless headsets are awesome. Not only do they make you look like a badass when gaming all by yourself, no cord also means you can do stuff like grab a soda from your kitchen without putting your music on hold. While we’ve seen a number of companies release some impressive wireless gaming headsets lately, SteelSeries has been rather inactive in updating their wireless headsets until now.
Today we’ll be reviewing SteelSeries latest flagship wireless gaming headset, the SteelSeries H Wireless. As its name implies, the SteelSeries H Wireless is a premium gaming headset is based off SteelSeries’ H series gaming headset [...]
A couple years ago when Creative first introduced the Sound Blaster AXX series, it was probably one of the coolest products I had ever had the opportunity of reviewing. At the time I simply hadn’t seen a USB powered Bluetooth speaker with the type of sound and voice processing Creative had crammed into the Sound Blaster AXX, and while it wasn’t perfect, being someone who regularly traveled to different tech shows and events, it was a product that I didn’t really know I needed until I actually had it.
Fast forward a couple years and now Creative is on their second generation Sound Blaster AXX, and along with that is also a new product based off the [...]
Last year when we reviewed the Creative Sound Blaster AXX SBX 10 and SBX 20 it was probably one of the coolest products we’ve ever come across. Whereas generally you’d get a product that’s a Bluetooth speaker, or sometimes you’d get a product that’s an external sound card, or sometimes you’d get a product that’s a desktop microphone – with the Sound Blaster AXX, you get it all in single product. While we were impressed with what Creative had done with the first generation Sound Blaster AXX, once we got some hands on time with it, we noticed that there were a couple features that we felt [...]
