arctic S111BT-01

I've had the chance to review a few Bluetooth speakers now, but the Arctic S111BT is the first pair I've tried that's designed as two separate speakers, wired together as a left and right pair. Each photo can be clicked for a larger view. Yes, this is Arctic, the company formerly known as Arctic Cooling, [...]

bt4000

Remember the 80's and 90's before there was such a thing as the iPod? In those days, the music player of choice was the boombox. Now you can relive those days with the RichardSolo BT-4000 Rechargeable Wireless Boombox. It might look retro, but it's packed with technology too. The BT-4000 features 90mm poly driven stereo [...]

Braven_BRV-X_2

I have reviewed a few speakers from Braven and am consistently impressed with a build quality that matches their audio quality. While the 600 speaker was impressive for its size (there’s that caveat again), the 850 speaker was stunning in both its power and beauty. The BRV-X fits somewhere in the middle of Braven’s range, [...]

When my daughter first envisioned herself at college this year, she saw herself zipping around campus on her bike, listening to music as she rides to class with a cool wind in her hair.  She found out that it was hot and humid with no cool winds, the path was uphill on her way to all her [...]

LoFree-EDGE-bluetooth-speaker-6

Over the years, I've had the chance to review several small, wooden speakers from Pyramid Distribution.  You'll find links to those reviews at the end of this review.  I had assumed those cute little speakers, shaped like acorns or Scottie dogs, would be more fun than functional, but I was proven wrong by every one [...]

I used to be an earbuds-kinda guy, because frankly, I was cheap. I didn't want to spend a small fortune on something to listen to my music. So I struggled for years with finding affordable earbuds that wouldn't fall out of my ears with the simple turn of my head, and ended up spending more money on one [...]

portable-voice-clarifying-tv-speaker

When I lived in a standalone house, I could crank the TV volume loud enough to hear what was being said over the music and background noises.  Now that I live in a condo building, I have to worry about keeping my noise levels down, so I constantly find myself asking "what did he say?" [...]

ClearStream Antenna 1a

We lost our internet connection for about 24 hours recently. After each of us wandered around aimlessly wondering what to do, we finally found some other things to occupy our time - you know, fun things like cleaning the house, playing board games, and being chased by angry wasps whose nest we had just sprayed [...]

When I was a kid I had a radio that could pull in all sorts of stations and bands. I loved turning the tuning knob very slowly so I could find every station possible, sometimes even finding foreign stations, which was always super cool. I'm guessing the market for radios like that one has pretty much dried [...]

No matter how portable all those boxy Bluetooth speakers are, they are still boxes that need to be carried either by hand or thrown in a bag with other stuff. Whether you are going on a hike or doing yard work,, you still have to pick up the speaker when you move around. But what [...]

Creative_Sound Blaster_Roar_11

I’ve been reviewing a few Bluetooth speakers lately and while some are copy-cat versions that show little imagination in design or audio quality, others are unique enough to garner attention. The Creative Sound Blaster Roar speaker falls into that unique category. In some ways, maybe it’s too unique (more on that later). If you are [...]

Fit 18

With so many headphones nowadays, I'm really surprised that wireless Bluetooth doesn't come standard in every pair of headphones. When I moved away from the typical corded headphones I never looked back. If I had it my way, it would be wireless or nothing.  When I got the opportunity to review the BackBeat FIT headphones from [...]

There are now so many portable speakers available that have Bluetooth, speakerphone capabilities, really good sound for their size, and decent battery life, that choosing one is getting harder and harder. But really, who cares? Just a few short years ago, these technological perks we take for granted were mind-blowing. This really is the start [...]

B_W_Headphpones_P5_C5

The cool thing about top-of-the-line products and patience is that one benefits the other. Case in point: The new Bowers & Wilkins Series 2 P5 headphone and C5 earphone. Patience is rewarded because B&W has incorporated elements from their P7 headphone into the less expensive P5, improving just about every internal component. The P7’s success [...]

UnoTelly-DNS-Review-01

I am what many people would call, a "cord-cutter".  In my living space I don't subscribe to cable, and generally watch my TV online with services such as Netflix, Hulu, and Youtube.  A few years ago I lived in England and loved watching BBC iPlayer, but now that I live back in the US, I [...]

Many people would agree with me if I said that the Sonos wireless speaker system is the gold standard if you want to play music wirelessly in your home or business.  The feature set and options for Sonos are pretty extensive and performance is great. But it comes at a 'gold standard' price in my [...]
