When people choose speakers, they often think size and price should dictate what's best. That kind of thinking is false. The most important factor in buying a speaker is, “How is it going to be used?” When I reviewed the Audioengine HD6 wireless speakers, I said that “Once again, Audioengine has made a pair of speakers that [...]

Growing up, my parents had a pair of floor standing speakers connected to a reciever with a tape deck and (eventually) CD player. I loved listening to music through those speakers, and when I got a house, I purchased a pair of speakers like theirs. I bought a cheap little amp and Bluetooth adapter, but [...]

I've been using a Roku streaming device for many years to binge watch TV shows and movies on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon video and other online content channels through my TV. Now that I have a 4K display (VIZIO M50-D1), I have been considering updating my older Roku device for a newer model with 4K capability. [...]

I have a warm spot in my heart for Torque Audio. In an industry full of “me too” products, this small headphone company has managed to be different with their customizable t096z earphones and t402v headphones. A couple of months ago, they sent me a pair of the new AMHE303 Mercedes-Benz Limited Edition X Torque [...]

Bluetooth speakers outnumber the grains of sand on the seashore, it seems. Hardly a week goes by that I don't see a review of a new model on some website, especially in what has ecumenically been called "The Gift-Giving Season." /eye roll/ During this period, iClever just released a few new models, and I was [...]

What is the best way to enjoy a movie? At home in your recliner or at a movie theater in front of a huge screen with awesome audio? What if you could get the movie theater experience but at home in your recliner without having to buy a brand new larger TV and a surround [...]

I've been on a quest to find the most comfortable and best sounding wireless earbuds on the market and the latest pair that I've had the opportunity to test are The Dash from Bragi. Bragi The Dash started out as a crowdfunding project in the fall of 2014 that earned over 3 million dollars. Let's [...]

Several years ago most of us carried a dedicated digital audio device like an iPod or another brand of MP3 player with us so we could listen to our favorite tunes on the go. In those days, a lot of us also had Sirius or XM satellite radios in our vehicles. Fast forward a few [...]

You can’t exactly call Pyle’s new Sing and Groove speaker portable, but since it comes with wheels and a retractable handle, you can call it transportable. The Sing and Groove looks like any suitcase you might see rolling all through airports. But this ain’t no suitcase. The Sing and Groove is a 300 watt speaker powerhouse with [...]

I cut the cable cord about 15 years ago. We then purchased an over-the-air (OTA) antenna to receive our basic channels and have done well enough with that and services like Netflix and Amazon Prime. OTA antennas can be a pain in the neck because you are constantly trying to find the best spot to [...]

Amazon's Alexa voice service sure gets around. She started out in the Amazon Echo, then the Echo Dot, then other speakers like the Invoxia Triby, more recently Martian watches. Now you'll even be able to talk to her with a pair of headphones from ONvocal. “We’re excited to work with ONVOCAL to bring Alexa to [...]

When I reviewed the Thinksound On1 headphone, I came away impressed with their good build quality and warm, inviting sound which belied their monitor name. To my ears, monitors are all about accuracy—even at the expense of fun and engaging. That’s where the On1 headphone failed and succeeded. Now, Thinksound has replaced the On1 with [...]

Why is it that a lot of monitors have crummy stands that are barely useable. Case in point, the stand on the LG 21:9 UltraWide IPS LED monitor (29EA73) that I reviewed 2.5 years ago. Great monitor, not so great stand. It that only allows for the screen to pivot forwards and backward, but does not [...]

In midst of my last headphone review, I upgraded to the iPhone 7, which removed the 3.5 mm port. Sure, they sent an adapter to use and it worked great for finishing the review, but I realized pretty quickly that I needed to start looking into the wireless direction. Thankfully, JLab must have heard my [...]
