Asus Strix RAID DLX 7.1 sound card review

"  When it comes to building a gaming PC these days, a high-end sound card is likely pretty far down on your list of priorities. However, if you are serious about audio and want to get the best out of your speakers or high-end headphones, then you will find that your average on-board audio solution won’t cut it. Today, we are taking a look at the Asus Strix RAID DLX, their flagship sound card, offering full support for 7.1 surround sound, along with a headphone DAC and amplifier to enhance your listening experience.  "

PowerColor Devil HDX Sound Card Review

"  Welcome to another sound card review from the Guru3D sound labs. Today on the slab is the latest sound card from PowerColor, who need no introduction from their line of video cards, and it’s a beast. I know you’re thinking PowerColor must’ve had their headphones on too tight when they thought of branching out into the sound card market, and you might be right. There are a lot of good sound cards, the Xonars and Sound Blasters, but PowerColor didn’t just put out a luke-warm offering, no they slaughtered the lamb (proverbially, I assume) and went full high end. Let’s meet the PowerColor Devil HDX.  "

Creative Sound BlasterX H5 Review

"  Today we are delving back into the world of gaming audio with one of the latest headsets from Creative. With removable mic, cross platform compatibility and chunky looking design it very much looks decent on paper but how was it in use? Welcome to our Creative Sound BlasterX H5 Review.The H5 arrives in a rather cool case, there is a transparent dome on top and inside the headset is suspended in a tray with the bundled items beneath. Those items are the product documentation, cable to convert from single 3.5mm connector (smartphones etc) to separate mic/audio for PC and then there is the main cable complete with control pod which includes volume dial, a mic mute and button to answer calls as well as play/pause audio on your smart device. Those cables are braided and then we have the removable mic with flexible boom.  "

G.Skill Ripjaws SR910 real 7.1 gaming headset review

"  G.Skill impressed us when they sent over their new keyboard design recently and today we get to look at the latest release in the Ripjaws line: the SR910 “Real” 7.1 gaming headset. It is big. It is black and it does come packing a full 7.1 surround sound set up, which not many gaming headsets can boast. Indeed G.Skill is pretty keen for you to know that too. So much so in-fact that it has given the ear-cups clear casings, letting you see the multiple drivers within.  "

ASUS STRIX Soar PCIExpress 7.1 gaming sound card review

"  Ask any PC gamer what their system specifications are and they will be able to rattle off a detailed list of numbers and brand names … however there is a good chance they will still using onboard sound. For some reason sound cards are not seen as a particularly exciting addition to a gaming PC – but ASUS wants to change that. It has been making a number of gaming focused sound cards for a while, but its new STRIX line is gunning hard for the gaming demographic who are unhappy with their audio output. Today we look at the most affordable of the STRIX sound cards, the Soar. Although it has much the same hardware and features as its bigger brothers, it is more affordable which could be the real kicker in convincing potential buyers.  "

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2

"  Today we are taking a look at the new Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2, a compact portable Bluetooth speaker that’s a real powerhouse! Based on a similar, yet improved design to the original, the Roar 2 promises to be lighter and more compact while still delivering the same room-filling audio and eight hour run time… Since the uprise of the smartphone portable Bluetooth speakers have become all the rage and consumers virtually have countless options, ranging from $10 all the way up to $400 for something like the Braven 855s. With so many options on offer, creating a portable speaker that stands out from the pack is no easy task and yet this is exactly what Creative managed to achieve back in February of 2014 after releasing the Sound Blaster Roar.  "

Turtle Beach Elite 800X Review

"  The latest headset from Turtle Beach is aimed at mobile and Xbox One consumers. With noise cancellation, bluetooth, surround sound and even a mobile app we test it today in our Turtle Beach Elite 800X Review. Turtle Beach Elite 800X .The Elite 800X arrives in a large box and on it we get a thorough rundown of the key features along with a clear image of the product. Inside the bundled items are found in their own box and start with product documentation before finding an optical cable, 3.5mm cable for mobile devices and two USB cables. One connects to our base unit (more on that later) and the other to our headset, meaning we don’t need to switch cables for firmware updates, etc.  "

Razer Leviathan Review

"  It would be fair to say that we have been reviewing products for a fair amount of time here at HardwareHeaven… in fact we are closer to 15 years than we are 10 now. Thinking back through that time we can pick out a number of really stand out products in each product area and one of those was the Razer Mako. A set of 2.1 speakers the Mako were co-designed by THX and while the price was high, the performance was exceptional for a set of desktop speakers. So whenever Razer announce a new set of speakers we are always interested to get our hands on them and find out if they have recaptured some of that magic. Today is one of those days with a soundbar and sub combo, welcome to our Razer Leviathan Review.  "

Creative Sound Blaster E5 Review

"  Motherboard manufacturers have made great strides in recent years with regard to audio quality. Better controllers, better capacitors, shielding, separate PCB areas, amps. It could have significantly impacted Creatives business however they have been smart about the whole situation, working with some manufacturers to build their hardwar onto boards, and with others to implement software based solutions that enhance the audio experience. The laptop market has some way to go though in sound quality and of course more and more people are using smartphones for their audio needs. Today we take a look at a product which is designed to enhance all of these (Desktop, Laptop and Smartphone) in our Sound Blaster E5 Review.  "

Sound: Razer Seiren

Razer Seiren Review

"  Razer are not afraid to dabble in new areas and have been known to look to the expertise of others when designing a new product. The Razer Mako for example were based on a THX design, not a bad place to start! Now with their latest addition they look to Blue and their Yeti mics. This is our Razer Seiren Review.  "
