Samson Meteor Podcast Microphone Review

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

It’s been a while since I’ve laid my hands upon any shiny audio gear, actually it’s been a while since I’ve done much of anything when it comes to Gadgetoid but I digress. Few things, it would seem, come shinier than the Samson Meteor mic, which looks like a 1950s take on a Portal (the […]

Operation Flashpoint: Red River Review

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

I still have fond memories of the classic Operation Flashpoint on the PC, it was a clunky and ugly would-be war simulator, rife with glitches, but it’s not-so-trivial offering of playable military hardware, and vast unrestricted maps made it extremely satisfying to play. What constitutes a Flashpoint game has changed quite considerably since. The vast […]

Griffin GuitarConnect Review

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

One might be forgiven for saying “it’s just a cable,” and that’s all the Griffin GuitarConnect Cable is at face value. But what it represents is liberation, a pathway to creativity and access to a diverse variety of reasonably good quality filters which would set you back a pretty penny in pedal form. I’ve got […]

HTC Desire Review

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Well I’ve finally bitten the bullet and gone and bought myself a smart phone, my hand was somewhat forced by my previous handset crashing every couple of hours. It probably didn’t help that I dropped it down the loo once too! Anyway, The long and the short of it is that I took the plunge […]

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Set to be available this May (2010) at a price which is yet to be confirmed, the Korg microSTATION is a new and decidedly less than “micro” addition to Korg’s Micro range. The keys may be mini, but there’s 61 of them over the microKORG’s 37, and you can be absolutely sure that they’ll be […]

Samson “Go Mic” USB Microphone

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009

Adding to the ever-growing mixed bag of microphones geared towards podcasting, the Samson Go Mic will clip onto your laptop or sit upon a desk stylishly doing its thing. Its fold-away design makes it an excellent portable, stand-alone microphone to accompany your laptop and far exceed its noisy internal one in recording clarity and accuracy.

Line 6 Pocket Pod Express

Monday, April 27th, 2009

At first glance the Line6 Pocket Pod Express is very cute, stylish, and shiny. Almost toy-like. It’s the smallest and most basic of the Pod lineup and is designed to be simple, easy to use and portable but it’s looks can be deceiving, for they hide quite an exceptional sounding and flexible piece of kit […]

After a bit of a quiet period on the professional audio front here at Gadgetoid we’re coming back full force with a focus on producing professional sounding podcasts. Nestled within a recent shipment of gear from Behringer, with which to do just that, came the Behringer UMA25S which has nothing much to do with podcasting […]

Sennheiser High Quality In-Ear Phones

Friday, December 19th, 2008

Now that Sennheiser have finished aggressively stomping their competition into oblivion by producing superb headphone products in almost every category imaginable they are free to try some slightly more ambitious projects. First out of the door are the IE 6, IE 7, and IE 8, which have no relation to Internet Explorer. IE, here, stands […]
