When reviewing headphones, earphones and speakers, there is always one constant throughout: A music source. Whether it’s vinyl, CD, iTunes, music burned in Apple Lossless, FLAC, Spotify/Pandora or even FM radio, the music has to come from somewhere. Then there’s the music player: iPhone/Android smartphone, various iPods, digital audio players, computer, home stereo. As you [...]

As I have said before, I prefer earbuds, having tried literally dozens of them from stock earbuds to wireless sport headphones to extravagant, handmade monitors and everything in between. I like their small, compact, transportable form-factor for travel, working out, puttering around the house, etc. Be that as it may, it surprises me how many people are [...]

ivation acoustix-04

As a rule, I don't get that excited about Bluetooth speakers anymore unless there's a feature that really grabs my attention.  The last waterproof Bluetooth speaker I reviewed was the NYNE Aqua floating Bluetooth speaker.  What's so different about the Ivation Acoustix waterproof Bluetooth speaker? In the box, you get pretty much what you expect:  A [...]

Our smartphones and tablets continue to evolve with more memory, faster processors, larger displays, and better cameras, but have you ever considered the design of the audio jack? The 3.5mm jack that you plug your earbuds and headphones into hasn't changed in decades. The old saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it" is true, [...]

Blue_Mo_Fi_1

While unboxing the Blue Mo-Fi headphones, I was reminded of the door hinges on my wife's 1997 Lexus SC300 sports coupe. See, the Lexus hinges are not your everyday hinge—they're over-engineered so the large doors open and slide a bit forward which helps in tight parking spaces. Lexus reportedly spent over a million bucks developing [...]

I'm a captive of the cable company.  That is, because of my location I can't get over the air channels and the local channels are not available on the Internet.  I have given in and subscribe to a package that includes one set-top box, which means only one TV can display the channels we subscribe [...]

To say that we are in the golden age of headphones is an understatement. There’s never been a better time to find excellent sounding headphones in almost every price range, especially the higher-priced headphones. When you include the countless names entering the market, you have a recipe for awesomeness. Adding to this aural soup-de-jour is [...]

I long for the perfect smartphone. You know, the one that has awesome battery life, a high resolution camera that takes clear pictures in low light, and fantastic audio quality to blow you away. I recently upgraded my phone to a Nexus 6, but found one of the things lacking was the sound quality when [...]

I have a strong preference for over-the-ear headphones, rather than earbuds or on-ear models. I also tend to get so involved in whatever I'm listening to that I tend to walk away from the source without disconnecting. This is not good for cables or lighter music sources that are not attached to my person. So, [...]

Thinksound_On1_9

Let me state right up-front that I am not an eco-warrior or anything close. I own 3 chainsaws and don’t hesitate to use them on my 2 acres. That said, I do appreciate companies who use recycled materials where possible. Thinksound is such a company—and then some. They go out of their way to be [...]

A couple of years ago, we told you about a Stelle Bluetooth speaker that looked like lady's clutch purse.  Stelle is back again with another clutch purse Bluetooth speaker, but this one has room inside so you can actually carry your things inside.  The Stelle Audio Mini-Clutch Speaker has the speaker hidden in one side [...]

I am an earbud kind of guy, having tried literally dozens of them from stock earbuds to wireless sport headphones to extravagant, handmade monitors and everything in between. I prefer a small, compact, transportable form-factor. However recently, I have been noticing many folks wearing on-ear headphones and I wondered if I was missing something. After searching awhile, the [...]

Geneva_Areosphere_2

Geneva Labs has been making many different high-end speakers for a while now. Even though they make many models, S, M, L, XL and XXL, they’ve all been box-shaped and visual clones of each other—only in different sizes. That’s about to change in a dramatic way. Geneva has introduced the the AeroSphère series, an audio [...]

mpow-petrel-2

I've been searching for a good pair of wireless earbuds for a while now. So far, I've tried two pairs out. They both were OK, but neither were too useful. The first thing that caught my eye with the Mpow Petrel Bluetooth earbuds was the wings used to stabilize the earbuds. My wired Bose headphones [...]

In the continuing expansion of the Bluetooth speaker market, I have noticed a few trends. There are those designed for personal, near-field listening. These boost the sound from your tablet or smartphone enough that you can hear it as a bubble around your person, but those further away hear it as tinny noise. Next, there [...]
