A control unit is also supplied, which can be used to easily tune your headphones. Adjust the volume of each audio channel individually to enhance sound quality, depending on the game and its sound effects. Turn up the bass or tone it down, it is all a matter of personal preference. The control box makes it extremely simple to configure your headset. It also gives you the ability to switch between your desktop speakers and your headphones at the press of a button, saving you the time and the effort of rewiring your device.

The Tiamet 7.1 is also equipped with a boom mic – which is easily adjustable. You can bend the mic in any position, adjusting it to suit your convenience. This is to facilitate in-game chat, which can be vital to turn the odds in your favor.

Experts at Razer have outdone themselves with a product that has attracted the attention of gamers throughout the industry. Sure, they come with a $200 price tag, but the experience – that really matters.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus: Revolutionary Gaming Laptop

Posted on 31 July 2017

A decade ago, high-Fi gamin on laptops was considered absurd with so many standalone components that had to be purchased. The inception of gaming laptops brought a boom in the gaming industry, a much needed win for PC-based gamers that preferred PC gaming in comparison to buying consoles such as the PlayStation or the Xbox. Gaming laptops, in the beginning, were huge, bulky machines which had a limited amount of memory and laughable specifications. But they have come a long way.

Modern gaming laptops are slim, smart and savage. Take the ASUS ROG Zephyrus, which is an absolute beast. It has set very high standards among ultra-thin laptops, taking competitors by surprise.

The ASUS Zephyrus is one of the most aesthetically built laptops in the world, which gives its owner a sense of pride.
When it comes to ASUS’s flagship PC, it’s not just the look that’s appealing. In terms of performance, it may be one of the best we have seen so far. It is extremely powerful – and I mean ridiculously powerful. With an Intel Core i7 Quadcore processor and 16 GB RAM, the ASUS Zephyrus packs a powerful punch. If you have these specs, you don’t have to read the game requirements on the back of the disk cover.

ASUS has also incorporated 512 GB of storage space in the hard disk and an 8 GB NVIDIA Graphic card, which gives the Zephyrus unmatchable performance capability.

Weighing just less than 4.9 pounds, it has a 15.6 inch screen with Full HD resolution (1920×1080), which gives you the ultimate gaming experience without straining your eyes because of the anti-glare screen.

The ASUS Zephyrus might be one of the most popular laptops in the world; however, gamers have reported a couple of drawback in its overall design. For example, the absence of an SD card slot prevents gamers from using a popular form of storage to create a backup of their data. The only good thing about the keyboard is its appearance. It performs poorly.

Perhaps the most serious issue users have had with the ASUS Zephyrus is its battery life, which has been described by critics as being “laughable.” Choose wisely before buying the laptop; it does have beastly performance, but be wary of its poor battery life.

Motorola Moto Z2 Force: Available for Pre-Order

Posted on 27 July 2017

The Motorola Moto Z2 incorporates some desirable features. Strongly built, with a shatter-resistant glass screen, it guarantees durability, which is perfect for users who are careless with their phone. It also has a 360 degree camera and a number of additional Motomods, which are the hallmark of a Motorola product.

The Moto Z2 Force is an amalgamation of the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. This makes it thinner and lighter than its predecessors, but hard-to-break at the same time.

Statistically speaking, the Moto Z2 Force is much more cosmetically sound than its previous versions, being 13% thinner and 12% lighter than the Moto Z.

The phone is available in a variety of colors, all of which come with a brushed metal finish; namely Super Black, Lunar Frey, and Fine Gold for its feminine users.

Despite the 5-layer protection that this phone incorporates, it does not provide effective water-resistance, a feature nearly all flagship phones of different companies have. There is a hydrophobic nanocoating, which provides some level of resilience towards water, particularly designed to safeguard the phone’s motherboard from rain, but I’m afraid it’s not one of those phones that you can take underwater, like the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Motorola has tried taking a leaf out of Apple’s book and removed the standard headphone jack from the Moto Z2 Force, which is the only phone in the Z2 collection to not have one.

Equipped with 4 GB RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset, the Z2 Force is ultra fast, and provides a smartphone experience better than that of its high-rated predecessors.

The dual lens rear camera comes with laser autofocus and phase detection, ensures you commemorate important events the way you want; black and white, blurred background, 5 meter working distance in the dark are options that give you the choice of taking pictures the way you want, and not fret about picture quality in the dark.

The Moto Z2 is a good accessory to have. It’s priced at around $800, which is a setback however, because in this price range, you can choose from a variety of flagship phones from other companies, which are way more in demand that the Motorola Z2.

Origin Evo15-S Review: Thinner, Lighter and VR Ready

Posted on 20 July 2017

Portability really isn’t something you commonly associate with gaming laptops. Most of the flagship devices in the category are over an inch in thickness. But I guess thinner is better. With the new Ultra- thin Origin EVO15-S, things are changing. This 15-inch VR gaming laptop is half the thickness and weight of other popular devices from popular companies such as NVIDIA.
This ultra-thin laptop has all the features, which its more bulky counterparts have to offer, hence the success of the device.

o NVIDIA GTX 1060 6 GB Graphics Card, which gives you the ultimate gaming experience.
o Use the Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive for a desktop ready gaming experience, which is certainly something that is fresh.
o 7th generation Intel Core i-7 Quad core processor with Turbo Boost coupled with Hyper-Threading technology to allow you to run the latest applications and heaviest games with ease. Lightning fast speeds are guaranteed.
o 16 GB of DDR4 memory gives you the privilege of saying goodbye to delays in switching apps and slowdowns in the system.
o 2 terabytes of storage capacity enable you to store your data without fretting over how much storage space is left on the disk.
o Bluetooth 4.0, Intel Dual Band Wireless Networking, LAN card and USB Connectivity allow you to connect to your phone, should you need to do so.

The poorly placed power button and the absence of a touch screen can create reluctance amongst some gamers. It is also absurdly expensive, which acts as a major hindrance in sales, but it being expensive does not justify the fact that it is not worth the cost. Although many other laptops are available with the same NVIDIA Graphics card for a considerably less amount of capital, this is by far the best.

Despite these unfavorable features of the EVO15-S, it has certainly proved that gaming laptops do not have to be the size of cartons, which break your back every time you carry them.

OnePlus 5 Phone with Dual Camera Review

Posted on 14 July 2017

The message that the OnePlus propagates is that of a phone that despite being less costly than its competitors, it provides all, if not more, of the services that other flagship phones provide. OnePlus implies special significance on its design and camera, two essential requirements in any phone that hopes to be a successful product and capture markets worldwide.

OnePlus, like other popular brands, uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which is also used in phones such as the S8, Sony Xperia ZX Premium, Motorola Moto Z2 and multiple other flagship phones from well-known companies. The finger print scanner is virtually the same as in other phones; its sensitivity and method of working have minute, negligible differences, which you won’t even feel unless you’re a complete tech junkie.

The OnePlus 5, their flagship phone, is one that is booming worldwide. The features it provides at its price are unbelievable- literally; most people wouldn’t believe you if you told them what the OnePlus 5 offers. When we talk about its screen resolution, we will find that it is 1080p. While other phones have a 2K display, the difference between the two kinds of resolutions is insignificant to say the least, although this only applies to screens of this size.

The design of the OnePlus 5 is, by and large, similar to the traditional smart phone approach i.e. rounded edges, a pill-shaped camera bump and a set of 2x cameras on the top left side of the back. OnePlus 5 operates on Oxygen OS, which is unique to the phone and has just enough differences from Android to justify its existence.

Other Features:
o 3300 mAh battery
o Dual-lens 16 MP and 20 MP rear camera
o 16 MP front camera
o 8 GB RAM
o Size= 5.5 inches

At a price of around 500 Euros, it is the cheapest phone amongst flagship phones of well-known brands, an original smartphone that provides the ultimate camera experience. No wonder it is giving major market-holders a run for their money.
