CORSAIR Flash Voyager GO 32GB USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Model CMFVG-32GB-NA

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome Flash Drive 07/25/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GO 32GB USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Model CMFVG-32GB-NA

Pros: Tiny
Super portable
Dual purpose (Computer and Android)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Wow this thing is tiny! I knew it was small going into the purchase, but I didn't think it was as small as it was. Right now I utilize this in my FORD Sync car audio system and it does a fantastic job. The USB 3 speeds are great to be able to quickly upload files to the drive.

I've only plugged it into my phone twice, but it was instantly detected by my Samsung Galaxy S4 Active and I was able to browse the drive and play content straight from it. It really is a neat little device that works exactly as advertised.

ROCCAT Kave XTD 5.1 Premium USB Connector Circumaural Headset
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic headset after a small amount of tweaking 07/25/2014

This review is from: ROCCAT Kave XTD 5.1 Premium USB Connector Circumaural Headset

Pros: "True" surround sound with 3 speakers per ear cup
Has rumblers in the earcups (something I discovered later on)
Great directional audio
Sound quality is great (after some tweaking)
Remote control is very functional and a bit of a trend setter

Cons: Requires a bit of tweaking before the headset is up to par
Not quite as plug-and-play as some might like

Other Thoughts: This headset is phenomenal. I really got what I paid for. One of the first things I want to mention is that if you are unwilling to tinker around with your sound settings, codecs and the EQ software, this is not the headset for you. Now since that is out of the way, I would like to break this out in the common scenarios I've used this headset in and elaborate on each of them.

The sound quality out of the box is nothing short of unexceptional. It sounds tinny and not well rounded. Tinkering around with the EQ and other effects has helped to significantly increase the sound quality of the headset. With the default Windows codecs, it really doesn't allow you to leverage the headset's ability. I ended up utilizing k-lite codecs to essentially disable all default windows codecs and replace them with the k-lite ones.

WOW does that make a world of difference! The codec change alone helped increase the audio quality. I went one step further and enabled the LFE to be properly directed to the rumblers, boy did that ever make the bass come alive. After that bit of tweaking, this has easily become my favorite headset to listen to music on.

I have only watched a few movies with surround sound and I will say that it works as expected. The movie mode on the remote controller didn't seem to make much of a difference, but perhaps I was missing something

Games are kind of a crapshoot. With games that officially support surround sound, I definitely can hear the directional audio and feel the (deep toned) action. The rumblers really give a different feel to the game when your head vibrates from deep tones.

~Voice Communication~
This headset has done a great job with voice communication. I currently use skype and the bluetooth feature and I have not received any complaints from my friends and family when talking to them. The mic is of fairly high quality and does a great job.

~Other Features~
I personally haven't tested the speaker out jacks on the remote control but I'm sure they work perfectly fine and perhaps even better than some on-board audio solutions. Otherwise the bluetooth features are really a blessing for the modern age.

Overall this is a fantastic headset for anyone who wants true 5.1 surround sound for their entertainment experience without needing to have a speaker setup. Although it takes a bit of tweaking to get to the right setup, it is definitely worth it. I am definitely a fan of Roccat after I have experienced the quality of one of their products first hand.
