AVerMedia Introduces SonicBlast Series Gaming Soundbars
Ron Perillo / 4 years ago
AVerMedia is taking a break from their usual game streaming product releases and is announcing the new SonicBlast series gaming audio products. This includes the GS331, GS333 and GS335. The GS331 and GS333 are both soundbars complimented with the optional GS335 sub-woofer. Which means the GS331 or GS333 can be used alone, but the GS335 can only be used with any of the two soundbars.
AVerMedia GS331 and GS333 Features
The main distinction between the two is that the GS331 is a 2.0 channel system, while the GS333 is 2.1. Which means they also differ in audio output power. The GS331 having 20W x 2 per channel and the GS333 having 12W x 2 + 36 W. The GS331 has a greater frequency response range however, at 35 to 20,000 Hz, while the GS333 has a 100-20,000Hz range.
Both share the same connectivity options, including an optical in, line-in, aux (l/r), and USB input. The two soundbars also support BlueTooth 4.0 (CSR) with A2DP and AVRCP BT profiles. The GS331 measures 620 x 69.5 x 65mm and weighs 1328g. The GS335 is slightly larger as it has two additional 3-inch subwoofers aside from the same 4x 2-inch active speakers that it shares with the GS331. It measures 570 x 105 x 81mm and weighs more than kilogram more at 2417g.
AVerMedia SonicBlast GS335 Features
The GS335 adds pulse-pounding bass to either the SonicBlast GS331 or GS333. This is due to its 6.5-inch downward-firing power-amplified driver and 2.2-inch port tube in the back. The result is 70 watts of knock your socks off bass performance. Since it is a wireless sub, users can place it anywhere they wish within range. No worries about tripping on wires or cable management. The only cord it has is for connecting the power.
