Bluetooth Gear

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 [...]

ironman-speaker

Why buy an ordinary Bluetooth speaker when you can buy one that is a life sized replica of Iron Man's head. The MARVEL Iron Man Mark XLIII 1:1 Scale Bluetooth Speaker from Brando plays all your favorite tunes via Bluetooth, USB flash drive or 3.5mm audio cable. Pair it with your Bluetooth enabled mobile device, [...]

Wahoo-TickrX-1

Fitness gadgets are my exercise motivator. I love them. My only caveat is that they must be able to accurately track at the very least my heart rate and calories burned during a workout and not just my daily routine activities. The more data they collect the better. When the Gadgeteer was offered the Wahoo [...]

I don't know about you, but I'm really sick of the whole selfie craze. No one wants to see image after image of your goofy looking duck face. But if you absolutely must use your phone to take pictures or videos of yourself, having a remote shutter button is a handy gadget for the selfie [...]

iClever-Bluetooth-Stereo-Headset-1

I've been using an inexpensive set of Philips wired earphones forever and have been pretty happy with them. However, the more time that has passed, the more I have thought about replacing them with a Bluetooth set, especially when doing chores around the house. The iClever IC-BTH01 Bluetooth Stereo Headset was then offered to the [...]

The iPhone 6 Plus is a big beautiful smartphone that comes close to being a small tablet. If you own this phone and find yourself wishing you could type long emails or text messages with a physical keyboard instead of the onscreen version, consider this clip-on Bluetooth keyboard from Brando. The iPhone 6 Plus Ultra-thin [...]

Plantronics Voyager Legend 1

Bluetooth hands-free headsets or smart car calling features are becoming more and more necessary now that 14 states have banned hand-held cell phone use while driving, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association.  Even if your state doesn't have a ban on hand-held cell phone use while driving, there are bans on people using them in school [...]

smsaudio_sync50-1

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 [...]
