-Hey, I'm Justin Yu, associate editor at CNET with a review of the Razor Ferox gaming speakers.
For $60, these USB-rechargeable speakers are marketed as gaming-specific, but there's really nothing about them that specifically benefits gaming audio.
That said, their audio quality is more on par with USB speakers and you can get much more features and better amplification out of the Creative D100 Bluetooth boombox.
That one's reviewed on CNET as well.
It's $20 more but you'll be more satisfied with the sound
Now, the hardware consists of these 2 satellite speakers joined by a nylon cable that features a USB charging plug on one side and a 3.5-mm audio jack on the other.
If you push the top of each dome, the speakers expand to reveal a mesh chamber where the sound comes out.
So, you can use the jack to play music out of any device with a standard headphone port like an iPhone or iPad.
But the D100 by Creative has more elegant wireless Bluetooth solution, so you don't have to carry around this clumsy cord with you.
And Razor makes the claim that their chambers actually strengthen the bass and resonance of your music, but we tested the volume levels and are disappointed with the audio fidelity.
We played several songs across a variety of genres through the Ferox speakers and we noticed lots of bass and treble distortions even at low volumes.
Like we said before, your dollar will go much further with a slightly more expensive audio solution like the Creative Bluetooth D100 speakers, so you should definitely check those out if you're in the market.
You can read all the details in our full review on CNET, but that's gonna do it for me.
I'm Justin Yu.
