In an effort to get a grasp on the range of abilities the Gravity Blaster 2.1 possesses, I listened to a wide range of music as well as playing a few hours of a few atmospheric games. This allows for a guaging of the speaker’s abilities to deliver a full range of frequencies and depth of sound.

Also throughout my usage period I played around with the volume controls and remote, to guage the functionality and build quality of the product.
