Creative Sound BlasterX G6

Getting a sound boost on a PC used to be invasive – requiring you to buy and install a sound card to get the best audio from your PC. Portable DACs and amplifiers have made it easier to veer away from built-in tinny sound, but console gamers haven't always been so lucky.  But that's a […]

Plantronics BackBeat Go 810

The Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 are one of our favorite wireless headphones as they offer excellent sound, build quality and features for the price.  That said, if you don’t want to spend $200 (£230, AU$250) on a set of wireless headphones but still want active noise cancellation (ANC), the all-new Plantronics BackBeat Go 810 are […]

Yamaha RX-V485

The A/V receiver is nothing new, but what is new is the fact that A/V receivers are now getting smart features, better connectivity, and more features for the money.  That’s great news for consumers, who might want receivers with support for surround sound and wireless standards like AirPlay, without having to shell out the cash […]

Samsung HW-N850 Soundbar

The Samsung HW-N850 comes hot on the heels of the manufacturer’s flagship HW-N950 ‘Cinematic’ soundbar, and is essentially the same but without the wireless rear speakers. That means you still get upward and side-firing speakers at the front, a wireless subwoofer and support for Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. Since the soundbar itself is identical to […]

Sony A8F OLED TV

When Sony launched their flagship A1 TVs in 2017, cinema fans embraced the combination of Sony processing and OLED technology. The only downside faced by the TV was it’s design, which some complained wasn’t angled for best viewing experience and couldn’t be hung on a wall.

UE Wonderboom Freestyle collection

The UE Wonderboom isn’t a new player in the Bluetooth speaker category, it’s been there from a while and like most Logitech speakers, it’s got a great build and design. What’s new with the Wonderboom Freestyle speaker is its funky new design, that adds up to the style quotient to make it a “fashion accessory” […]

UE Megaboom 3

The previous generation UE Boom 2 was one of our favorite waterproof speakers of all-time and for good reason – it had a rugged design that could take a beating, got incredibly loud, and sounded great for the money.  For the third generation UE Megaboom 3, Ultimate Ears didn’t change the formula much, but that’s not […]

BenQ HT2550 4K HDR Projector

4K projectors may be getting better right alongside their big-screen TV counterparts, but while the latter has been coming down in price, the former has been slow to accept a more consumer-friendly price tag. At least, that was the case up until earlier this year when BenQ announced the HT2550 (called the BenQ W1700 in […]

LG PK7 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

While the speakers on our best waterproof speaker list often impress us with their booming audio, it’s always easier to make a speaker sound better if engineers have more room to play around with.
