Primp up the volume!

No one buys a laptop or netbook for audio quality, but lots of people use their portable devices for audio-intensive apps like playing music, watching movies, and talking on VoIP.  Now people with mild to moderate hearing loss can improve their audio with a USB device.  The X-Tube DTS looks like an old electronic tube, and glows blue when operating.   Beyond the classy optics are some impressive acoustics: simulated surround sound, better frequency response, and on-screen sliders for bass enhancement and “voice clarification”.  As always, your mileage may vary, but the review at the link below is pretty positive, except for suggesting that you use better headphones than the bundled ones.  Only $45 dollars once it arrives.
