In today's contest, spoil your ears and win an EPOS GSX 300 External Sound Card! My ears are weirdly sensitive, but I'm also oddly deaf. It's a really, really stupid combo that doesn't make any sense. I can feel bass in my eardrums from mil...

Lucio may be featured in the next Overwatch short film

It's no secret I'm a big fan of Overwatch, and Lúcio is my favorite character of the bunch. His voice acting is a big part of that, so I was happy to see this interview with the voice of Lúcio, Jonny Cruz. If you hav...

Just listening to this data-mined P.T. audio is unnerving

On the opposite end of the spectrum from that absurdly funny fan-made Metal Gear Solid V animation that swapped in Norman Reedus' character and Lisa from P.T., here we have another great find dug up by data miners: all the spooky scary voi...

Razer buys audio-visual company THX

When I think of THX, I think of its logo, that distinct before-the-movie "Deep Note," and also this wide-eyed creature. But, going forward, maybe I'll think about Razer, too. The gaming hardware maker has acquired THX for an undisclosed amo...

Smell the ashes while listening to City 17

I've been a fan of the various You Are Listening To... streams for a few years now. Initially, you could listen to the police banter of various North American cities while a stream of ambient and instrumental music played at the same time. ...

Review: Cambridge Audio DacMagic XS USB DAC

Before I tell you why you need this DAC or any other, let me tell you what it actually is.  Think of a Digital to Analog Converter as an external upgrade for the circuitry of your audio device's innards. Every modern audio device, from...

Review: Polk N1 Gaming SurroundBar

I don't have the best history with sound bars. I had this bigger JBL one that sounded nice, but it stopped working. Kaput. I tried to replace it with one of Sony's budget models, but that one sounded so bad that I laughed at it. And I retur...

The best PC desktop speakers we found at CES 2014
