Master_Dynamic_News_1

One of the ways to keep top headphone makers innovating is a healthy dose of competition. Master and Dynamic is a new headphone (and earphone) company that could be the cause of some sleepless nights among its competitors. Their use of premium materials—forged aluminum, stainless steel, and lambskin leather combined with classic design—is garnering a lot [...]

Truffol_Durasound_1

With all the nifty bells and whistles being added to new portable Bluetooth speakers lately, is it still possible to get excited anymore about a new speaker? Especially one that isn’t the best looking, isn’t the best sounding, doesn’t have the longest battery life, won’t charge your smartphone and can’t be thrown from a balcony [...]

NudeAudio_SuperM_3

In just a short time, NudeAudio has become known for good-sounding, no-frills Bluetooth speakers that are also reasonably priced. However, NudeAudio was not satisfied (are successful companies ever satisfied?), so they decided to do something a little different. They went public with a Kickstarter Fund for the development of their next project: The NudeAudio Super-M [...]

blugo-bluetooth-speaker

I've seen various gadgets, including phone backup batteries, used as keychain fobs, but this is the first Bluetooth speaker key fob I've seen.  The BluGo Bluetooth speaker from Triple C is only 2.25" in diameter and 1" thick.  It comes with a ball chain to clip onto your keyring or bag strap.  It has a [...]

ipazzport-bluetooth-remote-for-apple-tv-1

We have an Apple TV, and we love watching programming with it.   In keeping with the Apple design ethic, the device and its remote are both sleek and minimal.  Despite only having two buttons and a 5-way navigation control, the remote works well for selecting and controlling programming - until you need to enter [...]

Atomic_Floyd_SuperDarts_Titanium_1

2 years ago, I reviewed Atomic Floyd’s SuperDarts hybrid in-ear headphones. I liked them then and I like them now. I often still use them despite how many earphones I’ve reviewed or have yet to review. I like the sound signature and I really like the hybrid speaker design—an armature and a dynamic speaker working [...]

Simple.TV review

SimpleTV-1

We cut cable a long time ago and opted for over-the-air (OTA) channels using antennas. Back in the day, we also bought DVD recorders to record our favorite shows but had problems with ALL of them, and never got around to replacing them. Most of the time I'm at home when my shows are on, [...]

It’s pretty fascinating watching the Chinese headphone and earphone market move upscale in both audio and build quality. There are Chinese earphones that now rival anything else available. However, it’s also not surprising, because many of these Chinese companies have been making earphones for other companies for years. Now, they are flexing that knowledge under [...]

audioengine-b2

Texas based Audioengine who are known for their high end speakers and audio accessories, have announced a new speaker that has me drooling. It's the B2 Bluetooth speaker. I know that there are more Bluetooth speakers on the market than there are people in China, but this one is a cut above most. With a [...]

serene-innovations-portable-wireless-soundbox-1

A few weeks ago, I told you about a portable, wireless TV speaker from Hammacher Schlemmer that lets you bring the sound closer to you without moving the TV.  I did a little more research, and I found that the speaker is made by Serene Innovations, which makes a lot of products for people with [...]

marblue-headfoams-headphones

When she was younger, my daughter was the monster all the mother headphones used to scare their little headphones into being good.  Rachel could kill a pair of headphones or earbuds in no time, and then she'd come asking to borrow mine!  If the MarBlue HeadFoams had been around then, I might have gotten to [...]

RHA_MA600i_2

It’s no secret that RHA has been busy. This Scottish company seemed to come from nowhere a couple of years ago and now offer five different models (4 with or without mics) of in-ear headphones. I’ve been consistently impressed with the sound and build quality of their models, but the most impressive part is the [...]

inventio-hd-video-sunglasses-2

I have 4 kids, all of whom are actively involved in all sorts of activities.  So I am regularly engaged in video-recording their school and community activities.  The problem for me, as well as many other parents I am sure, is that when you are recording something like a soccer game, you often miss the [...]

sherwood-rx-4508-stereo-receiver-with-bluetooth-2

Years ago, just after graduating college, my first big purchase was a receiver, turntable, and speakers.  I eventually added a better turntable, a cassette deck, and finally a CD player.  Over the years, I replaced all my vinyl albums with CDs and pared my components down to just a CD player, my receiver, and speakers.  Finally, [...]

Parrot_Zik2_01

Parrot may be famous for their drones, but they also make one of the most interesting headphones available anywhere: the Parrot Zik. These Phillipe Stark designed headphones combined stunning looks with equally impressive tech. But that was two years ago. Today Parrot has released the re-imagined Zik 2.0 headphone. Rather than make minor improvements with slight [...]

I'm a big Star Trek fan and always wished that the holodeck was a real thing instead of a fantasy created for a TV show. The idea of being able to walk into a different world with a flip of a button sounds so cool. Imagine being able to visit the Sydney Opera House in [...]

Altec_Lansing_Lifejacket_1

Years ago, I had the Altec Lansing iMT800 MIX BoomBox and absolutely loved it. I eventually gave it to one of my sons as I upgraded my speakers, but I still have a soft spot in my heart (head?) for that monster—and it was a monster! However, with the popularity of Bluetooth and convenience trumping [...]
