In today's trends, nearly everyone's gaming or streaming setup needs a microphone. As we all have heard, communication is key. Either we're on a Facebook Messenger or a competitive match in Overwatch, a microphone with superb clarity is always needed. The Gaming Freak Chanter is a desktop microphone - but one that's pretty much unheard of.
We humans are weird. While the ideal speaker is having a flat frequency response across the spectrum, most of us will find it boring and "no oomph". Thus, we have equalizers, or EQ, to tweak the sound. But EQs are quite limited - hence hardware-optimized frequency responses. The Edifier M3600D is one of those speakers that goes beyond EQ, touting its THX certification.
It's been a while since we last looked at a headphone. The Edifier G2 Engage arrived at our labs and I have to wonder - Edifier actually has a gaming lineup of audio products? Let's have a look at it.
While the world of wireless earphones is still in its infancy, SOL Republic - an audio manufacturer company that's based in Michigan, USA, brought in two new wireless earphones to the Malaysian market. They are the Amps Air and the Relays Sports Wireless earphones.
When it comes to gaming headphones, you do need to fine tune it a little to get that sweet bassy frequency response with emphasis on the vocals too. Here's where the new Edifier G4, G20, and G10 comes into play - literally.
In this day and age of gaming, audio is very important in terms of not only immersiveness, but also in terms of getting an unfair advantage. We have 21:9 ultrawide aspect ratio that's technically not allowed in Overwatch because of visual advantage, but Blizzard didn't restrict us from getting good audio experience. With good audio, you can literally listen to which direction your enemy is coming from, and prepare your Roadhog hook for that insta-kill. Here are the Logitech G433 and Logitech G233 Prodigy that will get you that unfair advantage.
It's rare that I am to speak highly of a Bluetooth speaker. Personally, I'm more of a 2.1 speaker guy than any other piece of audio device. I do have Bluetooth speakers lying around the room or house so I can grab and connect to one whenever I wish. There was never one true favorite Bluetooth speaker - but the Edifier MP233 changes that.
It was a happy day for me as a big fan of 2.1 speakers, as the brand new set of 2.1 speaker was revealed - the Edifier S350DB. It was launched at Stars Picker Audio Cafe - which is also a heaven for audiophiles to experience top-notch audio products before making a purchase. Since it is a cafe, you can get some food and drinks while you enjoy too.
The speaker is... funky, to say the least. I mean, at this point, we can all agree on that point. The SonicGear Aquarius (2017) is a speaker that focuses on its looks way too much than they're supposed to while neglecting the sound quality. It sounds horrible.
