SETUP REFRESH Episode 5 – My New Audio Gear!

by birtanpublished on November 25, 2020

What's up guys it's mark from silenced tech I know in the last episode of setup refresh I said this episode was going to be all about installing my new desks unfortunately I've had a nightmare and one of them arrived damaged currently I'm in the process of trying to return one of the desks but the seller is being awkward to say the least I absolutely hate it when things like this happen so now I've had to skip straight to my audio gear for men who gave me setup I didn't really want to start this episode because I haven't even got my new desks set up yet either way is going to be an awesome

Episode and I know a lot of you have been interested in the RGB sambal you've seen in the previous episode so let's take a closer look this is the creative soundblaster ex katana I did a review about it in a previous video so if you want a more in-depth look at it check the link in the description for the video my previous gaming setup I had a set of wave master speakers well they certainly look nice man did they take up a lot of room on my desk so much so I actually had to put my PC my beloved PC on the floor I could have mounted them to the wall of the speakers but

Personally I don't like the look and this leads me on to why I wanted to get a sound bar in the first place as it frees up so much desk space plus I love the design it looks extremely premium with this brushed metal finish and it's RGB light strip that runs around the bottom the sound bar also comes with its own software that's killer it has so many options from different presets for audio that can be fully customized and of course the RGB light strip the katana really is a great all-in-one audio solution moving on to my go to you headset of choice right now it's the

Logitech G no free free are some a spectrum snow they have loads of cool features like the choice of running them in either wired or Wireless modes plus they can be used on pretty much any other device you can think of what really sets them apart though from any other headsets I've tried before is not necessarily the overall sound quality is the quality of the surround sound and most headsets I've tried before sound awful II still most of the liver pretty good audio with surround sound on there's also going to be a link in the

Description where you can check out my full review on these I can highly recommend them something that was a little bit lacking in my last set up was my headphone game my go-to headphones for editing right now on my AKG 702 s they're extremely flat and deliver audio to my ears exactly how it was intended meaning when I'm editing I can hopefully at least get my audio levels correct for example background music so it's not too loud drowning out my voice another plus point about the 702 s is they're extremely comfortable to wear for long periods of time when I'm editing I find

Myself wearing headphones for hours at a time sometimes I even forget that I'm actually wearing the AKG 702 s comfort is one of their key selling points and why ultimately I pick them up the fact that they open back as well means they deliver a great style stage realistic vocals and high levels of detail currently I have the EKGs paired up with my pride and joy right now the creative soundblaster x7 a USB DAC and audio amplifier supporting high resolution audio up to 24 bit 192 kilohertz the version I have is creatives awesome limited edition x7 in white it looks

Absolutely stunning it supports so many features from Bluetooth NFC dolby digital plus it can comfortably drive headphones up to 600 ohms it's also compatible with pretty much every device you can think of overall it's a massive upgrade to any onboard audio or sound card solution with creatives awesome x7 dark and a super comfortable pair of AKG 702 s there was really only one thing missing and that's of course a microphone so I decided to add the mod mic v as it turns any pair of headphones into a headset the

Mob-like 5 comes neatly packaged in a carrying case with various cables and extensions of different lengths there's also included clips so you can attach the microphone cable to your existing headphone cable plus a wrap that can be used around both cables giving a much cleaner but unfortunately bulkier look attaching the mod mic v to a pair of headphones couldn't be easier by first using the included alcohol wipe to clean off any dirt next to peel off the adhesive backing from the mounting plate and stick it straight to your headphones the mounting plate is

Magnetized so hold the mic in place really well plus it's easy to remove when not in use here's a little sound quality test of the mod mic v running through my Sound Blaster x7 DAC microphone test of the mod mic v running through the Sound Blaster x7 s audio jack overall I'm very happy with the sound quality I think it's going to be more than enough for in-game chat when I'm playing games and have been complimented by a few people saying how good the mod mic actually sounds very impressive audio quality from the mod mic v running through the Sound Blaster

X7 one thing I'm not going to do though is to compare the Logitech headset against the AKG s with the creative x7 ad mod mic setup it's kind of pointless because the latter costs about three times as much even then though the Logitech headset performs extremely well overall though the AKG 702 s the mod mic paired with creatives x7 gives the best audio quality for not only gaming but listening to music movies and more importantly for me at least editing as well so that's pretty much it guys for the audio gear going into my new gaming setup there will be reviews coming up as

Well later on for a 2.1 speaker system that creatives sent me and their RGB as well I think that actually adds about 50 watts to these speakers the RGB low and yes you heard me right a set of RGB 2.1 speakers i will more than likely be giving those away as well in the up-and-coming review so definitely stay tuned for that anyway guys thank you so much for watching my name's mark from silenced tear goodbye
