B&O_H6_H8

Bang & Olufsen has always been about style as well as sound. Nothing else looks like a B&O product—nothing. You can spot them a mile away. As we transition into a world of personal listening, nothing has changed the B&O philosophy—to evoke senses (their words). The B&O H6 and H8 headphones certainly do that. They are simply [...]

convertible-headphone-speakers

If you're tired of having to switch between headphones when you need to keep a quiet environment to speakers when a group will be listening, just buy a pair of Convertible Headphone Speakers.  They look like normal over-the-ear, wired headphones, and they have soft, memory foam-padded ear cups for comfort.  The over-the-ear design helps block [...]

gramovox-bluetooth-gramophone-2

If you're tired of rectangular Bluetooth speakers, check out the back-to-the-future look of the Bluetooth Gramophone.  This speaker has a high-quality steel horn mounted in a walnut base.  It connects to Android, iOS, or other Bluetooth-enabled devices, and it has an Aux input for non-Bluetooth audio sources.  It uses Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP profile, and [...]

For me, buying earphones is as tough as buying a new pair of sneakers. When it comes to sneakers, I'm picky about the way they look, the way they fit and how comfortable they are to wear. I'm just as picky about selecting a pair of earphones. Comfort and sound are equally important to me when it comes to choosing [...]

VidOn Box review

vidon-box-1

One ritual we have in our household is called 'anime night' every Wednesday. My husband has a collection of his favorite anime series that are in different formats, so we built a cheap media PC to watch them all. The problem is, it's a full blown PC in the living room. When the VidOn Box [...]

MPow Muze Touch-1

When it comes to headphones these days you have a whole world of choices out there. Along with those choices comes an array of features and price points. Bluetooth is one of the features becoming more popular, but wireless connectivity usually comes at a higher price. Mpow is bucking that high price trend by introducing the [...]

Picture this: You’re cruising down the street plugged into your smartphone but the power is beginning to run low. You want to keep listening, but you’re afraid of draining the battery completely if you do. Now, picture this: You just keep listening anyway because the headphone is charging your smartphone. You read that right. In [...]

Bluetooth speakers come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. They make them small enough to carry in your pocket or on your keychain and design them to snap on your bicycle handle bars or fit in your car's cup holder. They even make Bluetooth speakers that can float in your swimming pool. All of these novelty [...]

Audioengine_B1_2

Lately, I’ve been considering upgrading my Onkyo stereo receiver. It’s about 8 years old and doesn’t have wifi, Bluetooth, USB or even HDMI. But it does have a nice sub output for my (even older) Pioneer subwoofer—but that’s another story. There have been countless times that I’ve wished I could easily stream my iPhone to [...]

Jabra_SportROX-1

I have reviewed multiple sport headphones and earbuds over the years. Using wireless streaming via Bluetooth while working out has become much more the norm than the exception. Sport-centric Bluetooth earbuds have become less bulky, better sounding, and much hardier...making the experience more enjoyable. The Sport ROX Wireless are Jabra's latest and greatest "premium wireless earbuds" engineered [...]

I've not seen the need to get a security camera. I neither live in a huge, obviously-full-of-expensive-things home, nor in one of “those” areas where break-ins are common. But I do have this cute little dog, and when I'm gone, I often wonder just what he's up to - when he's not sleeping in his [...]

US_Megaboom_1

One of the trends coming out of the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show is turning portable Bluetooth speakers into bigger portable Bluetooth speakers. It’s not a new trend, but it is increasing. Ultimate Ears has joined the fray with its new UE Megaboom speaker. Like the original Boom, the Megaboom blasts audio in 360°. The big [...]

Fugoo_XL_2

Fugoo speakers were—and still are—one of my favorite audio products of 2014. I can’t say enough about how a small Bluetooth speaker has captured my attention the way the Fugoo speakers have. If there is one criticism I have with these indestructible mini-audio blasters is that they are just that … mini. As good as [...]

dropcase-1

The Dropcam Pro is one of the most compact, easy to use, and polished wireless cameras on the market. Their greatest weakness is being an indoor-only product with no outdoor option. Over the past few years, other manufactures have created aftermarket enclosures to protect the Dropcam from the elements. But many of these products have come [...]

Rapoo-A600-main

I'm always on the lookout for a great portable speaker to extend music from my mobile device or laptop. There are tons of options out there, but many of them look cheap and don't sound so great.  My post today will cover the Rapoo A600, a portable Bluetooth and NFC enabled speaker. Let's take a look! Upon [...]

bluetoothhat

The Bluetooth Speaker Hat from Brando is a tech clothing item that serves two purposes. It is an acrylic hat that will keep your head warm when it's cold outside and it's a Bluetooth speaker with phone capability. The hat charges via micro USB (Never thought I'd write that sentence) and features a microphone and [...]

Pendulumic_2

I’ve taken my shots at Bluetooth over the years, but even I have to admit, it’s getting better all the time. As Bluetooth matures and improves, so do the speakers and headphones that incorporate it. Pendulumic (say that fast five times) makes wireless Bluetooth headphones exclusively. And since they do only that, Pendulumic claims that [...]

Riva_TurboX_1

When does a Bluetooth speaker cease to be a Bluetooth speaker? Actually, it never does cease to be Bluetooth, but maybe it can cease to sound like Bluetooth. Anyway, that’s the idea behind RIVA's Turbo X Bluetooth speaker. The Turbo X is a mobile Bluetooth speaker for inside the home, outdoors by the pool or [...]
