AnandTech heeft een test gedaan van de Xitel Storm Platinum, dezelfde geluidskaart die ik een paar week geleden gereviewed. Best wel een koele kaart. Vooral de bijgeleverde force feedback koptelefoon is tof:
Actually, this is one of the few products in recent memory that actually went above and beyond expectations. It's not perfect, but it really does feel like you're wearing a subwoofer, or at least sitting near one. The claimed frequency response is 5Hz - 28kHz, which is actually wider than the typical human hearing range of 20Hz - 20kHz. Why go so low? You can still feel sounds below 20Hz, it's that sort of rumble you get during a suspenseful scene in a good movie theater. The sound quality won't impress audiophiles, but for just $20 when purchased in the Gamer's Pack, there aren't many better options at that price point. They're also available for $40 as a stand alone unit, which obviously doesn't offer as much value, but it is still a decent buy since a similar pair of Sony headphones, without force feedback, would run $60 or more.
