As the many people, kids and adults alike, continue to use their smartphones and iPhones as a main source for a video camera, the HD quality resolution that the phones record is nothing less than stellar.

voom-20-packaging_2

A few months ago I was given the opportunity to review the VAVA Voom Bluetooth speaker. While reviewing it, I found it was a nice speaker, but had a few issues that kept it from reaching greatness. VAVA recently released their newest speaker, the Voom 20. According to VAVA, the Voom 20 "seeks to redefine [...]

amazon-echo-dot2

I reviewed the first gen Echo Dot only four months ago and now Amazon has just announced a 2nd generation version. Wow, that was fast! If you're not familiar with the Amazon Echo Dot, it's a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses a voice "assistant" named Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, provide information, [...]

Once again, Creative can’t leave well enough alone. As if the iRoar didn’’t put out enough bass from such a small package, Creative decided to build a subwoofer for it. Yeah. If you’ve ever heard an iRoar, you would be scratching your head, too. But, here it is—the iRoar Rock—and if you have an iRoar [...]

Focal Elear headphone review

Focal_Elear_14

In my review of the new Focal Listen headphone, I mentioned that it was at the bottom rung (so to speak) of three new headphones from the French company Focal. Further up the ladder were the Elear and Utopia headphones—both very different headphones and both much, much more expensive. When I was given the chance [...]

B&W_P3_5

If it’s true that good things come in small packages, then today, better things come in small packages. Bowers and Wilkins has released the new and improved P3 Series 2 headphone. I reviewed the original P3 and said that, “The P3 headphones are a big step up for people on the move. Their warmth, detail [...]

Focal_Listen_2

When I reviewed the Focal Spirit Classic, Professional and One S headphones, I marveled how a French maker of insanely expensive speakers could manage to produce affordable headphones. Yes, they’re expensive, but not when compared to their heritage. Well, that’s all changed. Focal has released three new headphones and while the Elear (review coming) headphone [...]

Video cameras sure have evolved since the first VHS camcorder that I bought 16 years ago. That thing was HUGE and crazy expensive. If I remember correctly, we bought it on payments and it took about a year to pay it off. Today I have a video camera that captures much better video than the [...]

B&W_P7 Wireless_4

Last year, Bowers & Wilkins stepped into the future with their on ear P5 Wireless headphone. In my review, I said … “the fact that Bowers & Wilkins makes the P5 sound as good as it does when wireless is a wonderful bonus.” That bonus has been expanded to include the over ear B&W P7 Wireless. [...]

Like it or not, the days of wired earphones, headphones and earbuds are numbered. Why? Because, iPhone 7. Next week Apple is going to officially announce the iPhone 7 and it will not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Motorola Moto Z beat them to the punch on being the first smartphone without a headphone [...]

Carrying around our music is something that most people don't give a lot of thought to. We use headphones (wired or Bluetooth) to listen to our favorite tunes when out and about and don't even think about how we experience music - the fact that the sound is transmitted through the air to our ears.

RHA CL1 Ceramic_1

It's always fun to watch an audio startup grow up and upset the aural landscape. Reid Heath Ltd. (RHA) has been doing just that with good to great earphones. Their MA150, MA350, MA450i, S500i, MA600i, MA750i and T10i earphones all sound like they cost more than they do. Plus the MA 750i and T10i are built like [...]
