High-end gaming laptops are notorious for being these bulky, overbearing machines despite falling under the “portable” category. Crazy, right? Even crazier is Acer’s new Predator Triton 700, and we have our first look at it.
It’s unlike any Predator that came before it, having a surprisingly thin body without compromising performance. Yes, it still has a flagship Intel Core processor, up to 32GB of memory, the fastest SSD storage around, and of course, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card — just one, though.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There’s something special about the trackpad and keyboard, but you’ll have to watch our First Look video to see for yourself. And before you ask, pricing and availability are mentioned near the end of the video. Here it is:
ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 First Look
Double the display, double the fun
ASUS aims to revolutionize the way we use our trackpads. Hence, they equipped the ZenBook Pro 15 with a Full HD display that serves multiple purposes. This is your first look at the company’s newest ZenBook.
Acer Predator Orion 5000 First Look
Smaller but powerful
If the name sounds familiar, you’re probably thinking about the gigantic Orion 9000 from IFA last year. The Orion 5000 is a smaller model, but don’t think for a second that it’s any less powerful.
It has Intel’s latest Core i7 processor as well as Optane memory, which can make load times even faster. You can configure it with up to two GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards that run at the same time, and IceTunnel 2.0 technology makes cooling smarter.
Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset First Look
It ‘hears’ audio in 3D — just like how our ears work
Sennheiser has once again proven its authority when it comes to audio equipment.
The German company recently launched its inaugural Sound Forum in the Philippines following Indonesia and Thailand. This comes as their very own audio education initiative that offers insights based on Sennheiser’s expertise from years in the industry.
Things like selecting the right headphones for you, the right microphone for video-related production, proper maintenance of gear, and more are tackled at the forum.
A slew of audio solutions were also on display, but one of the products that caught our attention was the Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset. It was made available towards the end of last year and not only does it offer high fidelity audio, it also features noise cancellation, speech enhancement for calls, situational awareness, and true binaural sound recording.
In layman’s terms: True binaural recording means it records audio just like how your ears perceive sound.
Sennheiser teamed up with American digital audio company Apogee Electronics to come up with this device. It basically uses microphones embedded in each ear to mimic how the ears hear sound. With them around, you can shoot a video on your phone and audio will be recorded just like how you hear things at that moment.
We tried it for a short while and we’re actually impressed at how faithful it reproduced sound happening around us with extra depth and space.
We weren’t able to save the short video we took but above is a sample of the Sennheiser AMBEO at work.
As of the moment, this headset is only compatible with iPhones through a Lightning connector. Although the company says it will also be available for Android devices in the future.
Sennheiser believes 3D audio is the future of enhancing users’ listening experience and the AMBEO line might just be a step in the right direction.
The Sennheiser AMBEO Smart Headset retails for US$ 399.
