Creative EVO Wireless - Design

First of all I would like to thank ESL Gaming for sending me their headset for review. ESL are massive event organisers and after having reviewed quite a few headsets I was offered to review the EVO Wireless, which is made by Creative – a brand I’m familiar with.

The headset can be found directly on Creative’s website for £90 (where you’ll also find its full specs) and can also be bought on AmazonUK for around £55 and on AmazonUSA for around $95. As I’m a UK based reviewer, my review will be based on UK prices.

Here’s my video review (recording quality tests will be of interest to you):

First and foremost, I would like to thank Denon for sending me out the AH-NCW500’s for review. I was quite intrigued with the new range of headphones that Denon were offering, especially after the old range of headphones became phased out (D2/5/7000).
The wireless headphones range, thus was something that I was intrigued in, as it would be a little different from the “normal” range of headphones, both in portability and features.

The Denon AH-NCW500’s can be bought from AmazonUK & AmazonUSA.

FREE-D Ditto 22W Bluetooth Vibration Speaker – A speaker that transforms your furniture into a speaker

First and foremost, I would like to thank the very kind gentlemen, Joemar, over from Eagle’s World for sending me the product for review. The FREE-D Ditto, can also be bought from their Amazon store for £180, and also can be bought internationally too.

Now unto the product itself – The Ditto is my first ever vibration speaker I have ever owned; they do it’s a first for everything, and a vibration speaker is a first for me! Now the technology behind a vibration speaker, has been around for a little while, but has never been successful, simply due to its reasonably higher cost for the performance given, in comparison to your ordinary, conventional dynamic speaker. An example of a dynamic, portable, speaker would be the X-mini, which took the world by storm with its small size, with a large sound. In other words it packed quite a punch and was affordable for the “masses”.

Will the Ditto change that? Well let’s see just that, in this review!
