After reviewing their Diablo III-themed Sibera V2 headset, I was thrilled to get in touch with SteelSeries again to see what other audio candy they had to offer. They were happy to get in touch with a few more models, the first of which is this one: The 7H Fnatic Edition stereo headset.
It's a different beast than the Diablo III V2, so let's talk about just what to expect.

I have been asked to review the Noisehush NX26 and NX22 Stereo Headphones.
As I really enjoy listening to music using headphones, I quickly put my hand up for this test drive and from my understanding, both these headphones are due to be released shortly in the Australian market.
The NX26 are shown on the left, while the NX22 are the larger headphones on the right.
Earlier we reviewed a bluetooth car speaker from NoiseHush which performed quite well so we thought to have a look at their latest stereo headset, the NX80. Two things stand out: yes, that colour! The cables are a flamingo red, I suppose. Not too gaudy and easily found in the mishmash of wires and cables that clutter my desk. The other thing is the cables are also flat to ensure they stay tangle free. A few of the standard headsets that came with my mobile phones frustrated me quite a bit when I had to unravel them every time! So the NX80 scores a big plus here.
I recently had the opportunity to test out a new addition to Jabra’s headset range – The Jabra Sport Corded. Jabra claim that they are a high quality headset built to military specs’ with wind and rain resistant components that are still being able to offer a comfortable fit. So you can power on exercising while listening to music or being on the phone, all during a lovely tropical shower… But we’re not taking their word for it!
Following up on our previous review of the Samsung Series 6 LED Smart TV we now complete this write-up with our 3-D experiences and the installation and testing of the most popular home theatre option, the Series 5 Home Entertainment System.
In the words of George Lucas, the renowned filmmaker, a good sound makes up 50% of the whole viewing experience. How true this is we all know from visiting a movie cinema where surround sound dramatises the special effects of the film. It is somewhat surprising then that we could be satisfied with a few tiny speakers on a large but very flat LED screen, speakers that are also downfiring, meaning the sound is not aimed directly at you. A good sound system, compared to that on a TV, already can be had for a few hundred dollars. We are going slightly higher with a system that retails for $899. Again, as I mentioned in the previous review, I'll be surprised if you actually have to pay this much in your local shop.
The HT D5550 model from Samsung that we are reviewing today is a popular home theatre option with four so-called tallboys plus the centre speakers and a subwoofer.
Audioengine is a unique company that brings premium sound to the home and the office. Their products are primarily bookshelf speakers, but they also have a portfolio of complementary audio products such as a wireless audio adapter or a subwoofer. Today we will be taking a look at some of Audioengine's latest offerings: the P4 Speakers as well as the N22 amplifier. While these are two separate products that stand on their own, you will notice that they complement each other quite well.
There are many options available when it comes to earphones. We can expect to easily find some available from the big brand names, but there also seem to be quite a few offerings from smaller companies as well. It seems like many of the big brand name earphones are more focused on their higher end models, leaving their ‘budget’ products somewhat neglected and end up being mediocre at best.
Today, we will be reviewing two products from a ‘smaller’ company called MEElectronics. You may or may not have heard of the company, but their portfolio of earphones range from $11.99 to $89.99 with the majority being somewhere in the middle. With their diverse product line that is affordable and seems to raise the bar for ‘budget’ earphones, they are definitely a company to consider when buying your next pair of earphones. Today, we will be reviewing two earphones from MEElectronics, the M31 and RX11.
