Zalman ZM-RS6F USB Headphones


What we have here is a set of headphones from Zalman, featuring surround sound 6 speaker headphones. This review will give you the low-down on what you can expect from them.

Good quality of sound ; Comfortable ; Low sound "distortion ; Folding design ; Software utilities

Heavy ; Slightly awkward ; No mic

I've been watching Naruto for quite a while now on old crappy home made speakers, so when I put these headphones on and started watching; it was like Heaven surrounding my ears. The sound quality was amazing, it was definitely surround sound. And it...

Zalman ZM-RS6F USB Headphones


Zalman's latest ZM-RS6F USB headphones are based on a C-Media USB sound card and a 5.1 capable headset that can do real surround sound. The whole unit has been built to deliver a maximum of comfort while still being rugged and easy to transport....

USB sound card (a major plus for laptop users) ; True surround sound via six independent audio drives ; Sturdy design ; Comfort ; Sound isolation properties of the ear cups ; Sound card control panel easy to use ; Affordable

Sound quality ; Takes some time to adjust the sound scape properly ; Out of the box audio performance

The ZM-RS6F USB has a lot going for it, but it has some major faults that makes it that less attractive. First of all the sound quality is nowhere near as good as what can be achieved with a decent sound card and a headset. This is probably due to the...

Review: Altec Lansing AHP712i Headphones


Good, peaceful sound with comfortable ear pads

Very comfortable headphones. Easy to fold and store. Includes carry bag. Airline and stereo adapters included. Active Noise Reduction works well

Sound without ANR is less bright and tonally flat, but white noise may be distracting. The ANR controller is not removable. Need to carry spare AAA battery

Zalman ZM-RS6F Theatre 6 Headphones Review


The Dolby Digital standard has been available since 1992 and was originally developed as a format for 35mm theatrical film prints to carry multi-channel digital audio along with analog optical soundtracks. Dolby Digital is the current standard when it...

Aesthetically pleasing design ; 6 speaker channels ; Dolby Digital 5.1 support ; Can be folded away for easy transport ; Enhances the overall gaming experience ; Strong bass tones

Some application adjustment is required to achieve Dolby Digital 5.1 sound or emulation ; Rear and Center channels need more volume ; Audio playback is poor

The ZM-RS6F Theatre 6 Headphones represent a unique and different direction for a company whose previous focus has been on silent computing and performance based products. Zalman's first entry into the gaming market can be summed up with one word...
