Bluetooth Gear

About two years ago I bought a fixer upper for my family and I. Unfortunately, I can't afford to hire contractors; therefore, the bulk of the "fixer upping" is left to me. I rarely mind doing the work so long as I can listen to music at the same time. In the past,  I would [...]

I love the Samsung Galaxy S Tab 10.5 tablet that I bought earlier this year. I even took it with me on our last vacation to use instead of my Macbook Air. It worked pretty well except when I needed to type in a lot of text. For those times, I prefer an actual keyboard. [...]

ONANOFF-Sound-Cover-6.jpg

I was excited to receive this sample to review from ONANOFF. Being a music aficionado and an avid iPad Air 1 user, I was stoked when I read the company’s description and claim that this flat panel speaker/case, would improve the sound of my iPad Air by 400%. As you can imagine, I was a [...]

urge-basics-cuatro-bluetooth-speaker-2

Anyone who uses a smartphone, tablet, or even a laptop knows at some point you're going to wish you had a speaker that sounds better than the wimpy little speakers that are built in to these portable devices.  There's a plethora of portable speaker options on the market, ranging from really cheap to very expensive. [...]

I have owned many Bluetooth headphones and earbuds because I just hate wires.  Some of them have been pretty nice, and some of them have been a bust.  My favorite up until now has been the Arriva Leo, which I reviewed way back in 2011.   But in general, Bluetooth headphones suffer from two problems in [...]

When I was a kid, I remember poring over the catalogs we'd get (especially the Sears' Wish Book), and I'd look at everything that could be a gift for my family members - if only I had some money...  It always seemed to me that the gifts for men were strange and/or utilitarian.  Women had [...]

Arctic-P324BT_11

I use my earbuds daily: at the gym, working at my desk, mowing the lawn, and on and on. But sometimes I'd like to listen to my podcasts, tunes and other audio without having to deal with that annoying cable. I'd been wanting to try a pair of Bluetooth-based wireless headphones on the market today, so when [...]

The onscreen keyboards on our mobile devices work great, but for those of us who are touch typists or those who prefer the feel of physical keys when they need to do a lot of writing, a Bluetooth keyboard is obviously the way to go. The latest keyboard that I’ve had the opportunity to test [...]

The Kisai Link isn't one of the cool watches that you probably expect from Tokyoflash Japan.  It's a Bluetooth notification bracelet that's available in 28 different styles, so you're sure to find one you like.  The Link is the rectangular module you see in the top image.  Link uses Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy to connect [...]

bluetooth-ericofon

I love Mid-Century Modern architecture, furniture, and interior decor.  I used to have one of the coolest Mid-Century telephones ever created - the Ericsson Ericofon.  It looked unlike any other phone that came before it; it was sleek, modern, and colorful.  I used mine for a while as an extension phone because the ringer didn't work, but [...]

nova-flash

Janet and I have both reported on the Nova Bluetooth LED flash for iPhone and iOS devices (see related links list below). Now version 1.2 of the app that controls the Nova flash has the capability to allow one iPhone to control up to ten Nova flash units. We wanted to put iPhone owners in the [...]

Pendulumic_Stance_S1_3

With all the headphones I review, there’s only been one or two that were wireless. While I appreciate the convenience of Bluetooth, it’s not something I look forward to regarding headphones. Headphones are capable of revealing too much information in music and all the minuses of Bluetooth seem to be magnified when they are wireless. [...]

bluetooth-speaker-ottoman

I don't normally think of Bluetooth speakers as being big enough to use as a footstool, but this one is.  The Bluetooth Speaker Ottoman has a quilted faux leather exterior, so it blends in with your decor.  It's available in black only, and it measures 18" tall X 17.5" wide X 18" deep.  It has [...]

iClever-Bluetooth-Transmitter-and-Receiver-1

We have an old Yamaha receiver/amplifier that has 5.1 Pioneer surround sound speakers connected to it. I've been thinking for a while that it would be nice to be able to stream music through these speakers. There a several devices out there that will turn your non Bluetooth speakers into Bluetooth speakers to stream music to and [...]

marshall-kilburn-portable-speaker

Marshall Headphones has produced some home speakers in the past, but their newly announced Kilburn is their first portable speaker.  Of course, it wouldn't be a Marshall without that iconic Marshall amp style, grid, and classic logo.  It connects via Bluetooth v4.0 + EDR or a audio cable.  It has a 4" woofer and 2 [...]

Tile to the rescue

tileinc-tile-1

I lose my keys far more often than a responsible adult should. After doing so for the umpteenth time, I decided I needed a way to locate them quickly. I recently discovered Tile, a poker chip sized tracker, that connects to your phone via Bluetooth. It’s small enough to fit on your keyring, in your [...]

smokio

I'm not a smoker and have never been a smoker, but I do know that it's an extremely unhealthy and risky habit. It's a habit that is very hard to kick without the help of drugs or strong will power. The new fad is to switch from regular cigarettes to electronic cigarettes also know as [...]

Runtastic-Libra-1

I've been using a Tanita BC554 Ironman InnerScan Body Composition scale for over a decade and love it. It has been my accountability partner in trying to stay healthy. The only thing I have longed for is either a WiFi or Bluetooth feature that would automatically sync all the data to an app to keep [...]

Renny Home - 07

What do you imagine a “smartphone hub” for your home would do? For some reason, I thought it would integrate my smartphone and landline in some way to make it easier to use both throughout my house. I was pretty excited about that concept when I asked to review the Renny Home product. Let me [...]

MPOW-Bluetooth-Swift-Headphone-1

I only use in-ear headphones when exercising and have used a cheap wired Philips set (SHQ3200) for years, but now I think it's time for a Bluetooth set. I recently reviewed an iClever IC-BTH01 Bluetooth Stereo Headset and thought it was a decent pair but lacked the strong bass I like when working out. Since I [...]
