Princeton PSP-3DBar Virtual Surround System

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on January 16th, 2011

Despite it’s name, the PSP-3DBar from Princeton is not a 3D soundbar for your Sony PlayStaion Portable. It’s just a plain old 3D soundbar, which uses Trident melody audio technology to produce a virtual Surround system, whether you have a PSP or not.

The Princeton PSP-3DBar is great for a small home theater setup and a multimedia computer. You can also connect it to a DAP or an MP3 player with the usual 3.5mm audio cable.

Hercules XPS101 Refined Performance Speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on January 4th, 2011

Hercules will be unveiling their new XPS101 Refined Performance Speakers this week at CES 2011, even though they look like something you would attach to your car to make it look more old-timey. Despite their look, this is a high-end 2.1 audio system that is said to bring the “dynamic ambience of a live music event, the captivating soundtrack of an action movie and the precision audio effects of a multiplayer video game” to your living room.

I’m sorry they just look too much like a horn or a spotlight, even if they are made of high-quality materials for great acoustic performance. The rounded satellites feature a black lacquer finish and metal back sections. They should hit stores this month at $249.99.

The Hexound headset’s design is definitely drool-worthy. It’s just a concept for now, but we sure hope they become real. The headset can be detached and then they are turned into portable speakers. There’s also a solar panel in the headband.

Other specs include Bluetooth and intuitive controls. With these, you can listen to your music alone or share it whenever the mood strikes you, just by detaching. Hopefully these become real one day soon. I know I would buy them.

Personal Television and Theater Amplifier

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on May 31st, 2010

Getting older sucks. Or so I’ve heard. You don’t have the energy you used to, you can’t stay up as late and sooner or later your hearing is bound to go too. So there’s no shame in amplifying the volume when you need to. Problem is, it makes things loud for those around you.

The Personal Television and Theater Amplifier from Hammacher can help. It amplifies sound from a television, radio, or theater by up to 50 decibels. The device also has a directional microphone that amplifies high and low frequency sounds to produce rich, easy-to-hear tones.
