Beyerdynamic Custom Game Review

Introduction

For the most part when gaming there are just two senses that matter – sight and sound. This is why having a top quality headset is one of the most important elements to winning on the virtual battlefield. Traditionally, gaming headsets have always been manufactured by gaming peripherals companies that make headsets that are either average or below average quality, but with the dearth of options from premium audiomakers, until recently there really wasn’t much of a choice.

Several years back, renowned German audio products maker Sennheiser jumped into the gaming headset market and saw such success that they now have several models of gaming [...]

HyperX Launches Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset with Dual Chamber Design

Kingston Technology’s HyperX brand today announced the availability of its HyperX Cloud Alpha gaming headset.

The new HyperX Cloud Alpha continues the lineage of the immensely popular HyperX Cloud series of gaming headsets with a proprietary new technology which HyperX believes will help significantly improve audio quality.

Though Cloud Alpha uses the same 50mm neodymium drivers as the Cloud II, HyperX has taken steps to produce a more balanced audio playback by adding in a second chamber in the earcup. Dubbed the HyperX Dual Chamber technology, the second chamber allows the bass to be tuned separately from the highs and mids, preventing it [...]

Thinkware F800 Review

Introduction

Several months ago, we reviewed the Thinkware X550 and walked away quite impressed. While some of the driver safety features were a bit more gimmicky than Thinkware would have you believe and the pricetag is relatively higher than competing dashcams on the market, the Thinkware X550 still proved to be an excellent dashcam with great picture quality and more importantly the ability to record well at night which is an issue for many of the cheaper dashcams on the market.

New for the company this time around is the Thinkware F800, which is the new flagship in the Thinkware F-series dashcams. Unlike the Thinkware X-series dashcams, the F-series are more [...]

When it comes to gaming peripherals, everyone knows that Razer makes some of the best and given that most gaming peripherals can be used in everyday life, the company naturally branched out to create gamer inspired lifestyle gear.

Razer Announces Tiamat 7.1 V2 and Tiamat 2.2 V2 Gaming Headsets

Razer’s Tiamat 7.1 and Tiamat 2.2 gaming headsets have been upgraded to version two, and boy is there a lot of changes.

We can all agree that surround sound is great. While virtual surround sound brings acceptable positional audio, having real dedicated drivers for separate sound channels is simply superior. The Razer Tiamat 7.1 V2 now features 10-you read that right-10 discrete audio drivers (five per earcup). Each earcup contains a 40mm subwoofer, 30mm front and 20mm rear and side surround sound drivers.

Included with the Razer Tiamat 7.1 is a new audio control unit that offers speaker pass-through and audio channel management. Users can easily [...]
