Ulefone_9

If you ever wondered about taking that step into owning a smartwatch but were afraid of the complexity and the price then I think the GW01 from Ulefone will be a pleasant surprise in the right direction. With cell phones in everyone's pocket and the progression of day-to-day technology, having a smartwatch on your wrist would be [...]

The CT Band is a replacement watchband for most watches that is made of leather or silicone and comes in a variety of different colors. The band [...]

Braven_Active_105_4

Just when I finished reviewing the huge Braven BRV-XXL, they released the smallest of the Braven family; the Braven 105 Active. The 105 is made for just that—an active lifestyle. While you could conceivably get more exercise jogging while carrying  the 18 lb. BRV-XXL, it’s obviously not practical—and just plain weird. The Braven 105, however, [...]

Alpha-Skybuds-1

The notion of only having small earbuds in each ear, without cords of any kind, should make many activities where cord management and cord noise are problematic, such as running or exercising, more enjoyable and immersive.  There are a few players in this relatively new field of gadget, notably: Bragi, Earin, Motorola, and BÖHM. Skybuds, manufactured by Alpha Audiotronics, Inc., [...]

ideaplay-4

Every so often a product comes out that sounds in theory like a great idea but in practice it unfortunately falls short. Soundbars have been a staple ever since LCD TV's replaced plasma TV's. Why? The sound quality on LCD TV's are terrible due to their ultra thin design. When I first read the details of the [...]

jesbod-earphones-5

I'm still looking for my favorite pair of wireless headphones and the newest pair that I'm testing are the Jesbod QY13 Bluetooth V4.1 Headphones. They sound great when paired to my Nexus 6P, have a unique power on/off switch and great battery life. But there's always one thing that you wish you could improve... keep reading to [...]

Wand_Communicator_3

Imagine you’re a member of the crew of the USS Enterprise. You are part of an elite away team, along with Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and for some unknown reason, Dr. McCoy. Aliens are attacking your team from all sides. You need suppressing fire power to rain down from above. What do you do? As [...]

Braven_BRV_XXL_6b

I’m getting tired of repeating myself, but here goes: Braven speakers make some of the best speakers I’ve reviewed, blah, blah, blah. With all the Braven reviews I’ve written, it’s beginning to sound trite, but it is true. Over the past few years, I’ve watched Braven evolve from a maker of the really good small, [...]

mpow-cheetah-1

I'm trying to make running an integral part of my daily routine. For many people, a good pair of shoes is the most important tool when running; however, I won't even consider putting foot to pavement without having music to listen to, so I need a great set of headphones. Originally, I tried running with a [...]

cassia-hub

  Do you use Bluetooth speakers, light bulbs, smart plugs and more? Bluetooth devices are easy to setup and don't clog up your WiFi network, but the most annoying thing about Bluetooth is the short range connection and one-to-one pairing limitations. The Cassia Hub has been designed to fix these problems. It is a router [...]

jbl charge 3_03

In the world of cylindrical bluetooth speakers, the Logitech UE Boom I reviewed is the first that usually comes to my mind.  It had great 360 degree sound plus a waterproof design.  Today I look at the JBL Charge 3 waterproof portable bluetooth speaker to see how it holds up in the crowded world of [...]

jaybird_freedom-boxopenb

I've had the opportunity to review JayBird's BlueBud X and X2 sport-centric wireless earbuds, both engineered to survive a rainy run or extra sweaty workout. Their minimalistic design, comfortable/secure fit, and solid sound made for an excellent workout companion. Jaybird has taken minimalism to a whole new level with their new Freedom wireless earbuds. They have slimmed down [...]

808-hextl-5

A few years ago, I entered a drawing to win a pair of 808 Audio headphones. Since then, I've yet to replace them as my go-to cans, simply because their audio, and more specifically, their bass, was so great. When 808 offered one of their Bluetooth speakers to review, I was eager to see if [...]

Braven_BRV_Blade_3

I've written about Braven so much over the past few years that it's no surprise when they continue to release new speaker after new speaker. Do these people ever sleep? One look at their website and you begin to realize that Braven means Bluetooth. I will soon be reviewing their new small and chunky BRV-1M, [...]

Pebblebee Stone review

Pebblebee-stone-1

I'm a huge fan of home automation. Several of the lights in my house are programmed to turn on when a person walks in the room, turn off when there is no longer motion, or turn off at a specific time. Although I love my setup, some of my lights can only be turned on [...]
