Creative Outlier Black Bluetooth Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2018-05-20 read/post comments(0)

After wearing the Outlier Black for a while, we were impressed how light it does feel and comfortable, given its choice of materials (mostly plastic). The custom-tuned 40mm Neodymium magnet drivers do sound really nice while playing music of different kinds and did not distort even at medium to high volume levels. The headset does use a SBC audio codec in Bluetooth mode; when you do choose to playback audio content only, you won’t have any quality issues, but as soon as we did enable the headset to take phone calls, the quality has dropped. We would recommend using the Creative Outlier Black with the AUX-in cable for phone calls, because you won’t have any quality drops this way. read more

The new Armor A75 USB 3.1 external HDD does come with a professional looking chassis, which is also very light thanks to the aluminum build, impact resistant up to 1.22m and can operate between 5 and 55 degrees Celsius. It does also come with an USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C interface and the 2TB capacity should fit most user needs for backup purposes. read more

ROCCAT Kone AIMO Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2018-05-09 read/post comments(0)

As the original Kone, AIMO was designed for people with larger hands, while its comfortable shape does really help during longer gaming sessions. With the revised LED lighting setup, Kone AIMO looks more interesting than before, and thanks to the 4D silent titan scroll wheel, the lateral buttons and the EasyShift[+] function, we can assign plenty of macros to it. read more

Creative Metallix Plus Portable Water-resistant Bluetooth Speaker Review

Audio/Speakers&Amps by stefan @ 2018-05-06 read/post comments(0)

After fully-charging the speaker (a full charge takes about five-six hours), we did pair it to our Huawei P10 Plus smartphone and started listening to tracks on TuneIn Radio but also SoundCloud; right away, we were not only impressed by the overall volume of such a small speaker, but also its ability to handle bass! Creative has quite a bit of experience in this area and the custom-tuned drivers along with the passive radiator seem to do wonders. Judging by the Metallix Plus performance, it is ideal to bring it with yourself at small, private parties but can also handle the outside environment since it was built with IPX5 splash proof capabilities. read more

SteelSeries Arctis Pro + GameDAC Hi-Res Gaming Audio System Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2018-05-04 read/post comments(0)

After finishing up with the hardware setup, we have started using the system in the regular PC mode; The Forest game is quite atmospheric and the Arctis Pro can assist with its optimized drivers in order to deliver an interesting experience. Next, we did try Mad Max and the large 40mm drivers were able to deliver good lows so the engine sounds and gunshots were represented well, which were a pleasure to listen at higher volumes.   After switching the GameDAC to the Hi-Res Mode, we have done some research and found out that there is not a lot of 24/96 audio material out there. You would be in luck if you do own a Tidal subscription or you can… read more

CHERRY MW 4500 Ergonomic Wireless Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2018-04-29 read/post comments(0)

Since the MW 4500 does come with a rather unusual shape, the user needs a bit of time to get used to it, when coming from a regular office mouse. The wireless feature is an added bonus, while the dongle is really small in order to be used with both laptops and desktops, without obstructing devices connected to nearby ports. For some extra flexibility, we do have three DPI steps to choose from: 600 / 900 / 1200 but considering the maximum DPI value we would not recommend it as a gaming product. read more
