I've always had a soft spot for Fugoo speakers. Their rugged build, good sound and incredible battery life won me over. However, the original Fugoo speaker and newer XL version are a bit on the expensive side and anyone on a restrictive budget would be hard-pressed to justify buying a Fugoo speaker no matter how… Read More

Watching video in a large format usually requires a huge TV or a projector. LED projectors have brought the price of a projector far down from what it was just a few years ago. We were offered the ELEPHAS 1200 Lumens LED Mini Video Projector to test, and I won the office pool to get it… Read More

Welcome to the next chapter in my ongoing quest to find a pair of Bluetooth headphones that I can use while working out. I've tried a few pairs of wired Bluetooth earbuds with limited success, but for a while now, I've had my eye on the latest version, the completely wireless style. The QCY Q29… Read More

Several months back, in August 2016, I reviewed the Optoma NuForce BE6 Bluetooth wireless headphones. Not long after that review was posted here, Julie let me know that Optoma had already released an updated version of the NuForce BE6, called the  NuForce BE6i. Overall I'd been happy with the NuForce BE6, with the exception of some issues… Read More

Most of the time that I record video on my phone I can find something solid to lean against to avoid the inevitable shaking that results from holding the phone freehand. If I anticipate that I'll be taking an action shot then I'll record through Hyperlapse. But what if I really want to go to the next… Read More

FiiO is a fascinating company. In an age where people are increasingly using smart phones as their sole source of music, FiiO flies in the face of that trend by releasing portable digital audio players (DAP) that don’t do anything else.

2016 marked the beginning of the end for many electronic ports that we have all come to know and love.

Because of the heat this summer, I started doing it in a mall about ten minutes from my house, and have kept at it through the rain and cold this fall and winter. I was recently sent a Lucid Audio AMPED Bluetooth neckband system, which I've… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More

I love music in my home at all times of the day.  It can make cooking, cleaning or exercising more enjoyable, and bathing or falling asleep even more relaxing.  Now, add Amazon's Alexa to the mix.  Check out this powerful little 4 inch, 1.3 lb. speaker called Sugr Cube.  • Sugr Cube Speaker •USB Charging… Read More

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… Read More

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… Read More
