Review: Audeze LCD-1 headphones – planars that don’t break the bank

The Good

Extremely detailed

Lightweight

Comfortable

The Bad

Need an amp to get the best out of them

If you’re familiar with Audeze, you’ll know that its flagship planar driver headphones can set you back thousands of dollars, so when we heard there was a new, relatively low-cost version coming out, the $400 LCD-1, we were immediately interested.

I mean the company has a long history of creating headphones for professional audio engineers and musicians, so to listen to one of their first created-for-home-use devices? I’m all in on that.

So, with that pedigree, just how much sound quality does $399 get you?

So, what’s it all about?

The Audeze LCD-1’s are made around the company’s 90mm planar magnetic drivers, which enables them to make the headphones more portable while still keeping audio quality intact. That portability extends to a foldable design, and

Review: Pico Neo 2 Eye

The Good

Electromagnetic controller tracking is nifty

Great pixel density

Expandable storage

Tobii eye-tracking is cool

Comfortable

The Bad

Small number of titles in the Pico storefront

No physical IPD adjustment option

Then it was the short-lived Virtual Boy, Nintendo’s one and only foray into VR, with all the literal headaches it came with.

So when Pico reached out to see if I wanted to test out their new Enterprise-level, standalone head-mounted display (HMD), I jumped at the chance. I mean, who wouldn’t? Escaping into a virtual world has been a lifesaver for many while we’re supposed to be staying home, so what about if we could

Nintendo Switch vs Nintendo Switch Lite

If you’re trying to source a Nintendo Switch to stave off cabin fever, your already-small choice will often be made for you by what’s in stock. The rest of the time, there is a choice to be made between the normal Nintendo Switch with its removable Joy-Cons, and the Switch Lite, which is a sealed unit.

Both consoles have the same Nvidia Tegra X1 powering them, both have 1,280 x 720 resolution screens, and both run the same games. So… what’s actually different? Is there any point buying the more expensive Nintendo Switch if you plan on using it in handheld mode anyway?

So, which Nintendo Switch should I buy?

Short answer: It depends on if you want to use it docked

The main difference is if you want to use your Nintendo Switch hooked up to your TV, you need to buy the full-sized Nintendo Switch. That’s the
