3 out of 5 eggsDistortion?

Pros: It sounds great around %50 volume in Windows 7.

Cons: If I go above %50 volume, I get massive distorion on my Sager NP9150. It's a bit frustrating, as I like to have my 2.1 system plugged into my laptop and prefer to keep my Windows 7 volume max while I use the 2.1 system's volume controls.

Other Thoughts: Can someone please tell me if I need to change a setting or something somewhere. Thanks.

my nickname at-gmail if you happen to have a solution or maybe this is just how the sound card works.

5 out of 5 eggsnice

Pros: improves sound quality, great for the price. static noises are removed. noticing extra details in music.

Cons: the shape is a little weird, but not a big deal, also if you are using a laptop, the usb port on the left side makes the dreambass genie face backwards, not a big deal though

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: Cleaned up my audio distortion and does enhance the bass quality a bit.

Cons: As others have said, the way it attaches to the PC is a little awkward

Other Thoughts: Solid device. Running this with a set of z623's and the audio is perfect.

3 out of 5 eggsExternal USB sound card works as advertised.

Pros: It's an external USB soundcard for 30 bucks. I couldn't notice a difference in audio quality compared to my onboard audio using AudioEngine A2 speakers.

Cons: The vacuum tube design is a bit hokey, it's clearly a tiny digital USB soundcard in a plastic case. The USB port on the bottom and the 3.5mm jacks on the side make it a bit awkward to have plugged in. You'd be better off grabbing a short USB cable and turning it into a dongle then to use the included right angle adapter.

Other Thoughts: You'd be better off buying a Creative X-Fi Go for $35 for the simple fact that it has a better design (USB on bottom, 3.5mm on top). Enermax tried to make this a bit too "cool" looking and ended up giving up function for style.

5 out of 5 eggsA little device with a big kick!

Pros: Amazing sound quality. Louder and clearer music. No distortion in sound. Portable and convenient device. Great price!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: I was really impressed with the quality of this device. It worked really well and cost a fraction of the price of an upscale headset. It also did the exact same for my microphone. I'm very happy with this product!

5 out of 5 eggsDreamBass Genie Works Its Magic

Pros: Noticeable sound enhancement: deeper bass, cleaner & more dynamic sound, crisper quality, nice surround sound effect, eliminates electrical interference/static, small & portable, uses standard mini-USB input, quick plug & play installation with different PCs & Macs.

Cons: No additional configurations or dashboard, flashing blue light & transparent case may turn off some, the included 90 degree USB to mini USB may be awkward depending on where/how your PC's USB ports are

Other Thoughts: The DreamBass Genie was tested with movies, music, and games with RocketFish's 40mm gaming headphones and Sony's PS Vita 10mm headset earbuds - all benefited from the enhancements DreamBass Genie has to offer! Don't underestimate this little device.

5 out of 5 eggsDreamBass

Pros: I was very impressed with the sound quality of this little device. The bass was enhanced and the clarity of the music surprised me. I tested the DreamBass Genie with 6 different songs.

On my laptop and my Desktop all 6 songs sound quality and Bass were Improved very much so!

Cons: The 90 degree USB to mini USB is nice for a laptop but as for a desktop I would add an USB to mini USB cable for clearing the back of the tower frame.

Other Thoughts: I like it so much I am going to buy a 2nd!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little sound improvement

Pros: -Small size
-Great improvement in sound quality
-Plug and Play, no drivers needed
-Any computer OS compatible
-Solid bass sound, crisp highs, surround sound effect

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I tried it with music and movies, the sound improvement is very noticeable. I also plugged it in games and the sound effects are much better than any on-board sound setup. This product is definitely worth the money because you can use it for any computer you have, laptop, desktop, apple or PC. Right after you plug in the device the OS starts installing the driver from the unit. Highly recommended!
