It seems that if you have a bluetooth headset hanging out your ear you risk be labeled a “blue-tool”, but if you have your headphones on, that’s OK. If you worry about such things, I recently received a solution in the Sony Ericsson MW600 Hi-Fi Wireless Headset. While designed to work with Sony Ericsson phones, the [...]
Let me start by saying that these Diamond Mini-Rockers are probably the best sounding small speakers I’ve ever heard. I kept asking people to listen to them, to see if I was imagining it, but everyone who listened to these speakers was impressed. The Mini-Rockers are rated at 4 watts, they’re only 4×2 inches, the [...]
Have you ever really listened to your favorite music? Most of you either answered yes or know where I’m going and are rolling your eyes. To those of you in the latter group, I know you’ve been here before so I’ll make my intro nice and short. If you do not have a good [...]
Sennheiser, maker of high-end consumer and professional audio gear, announced yesterday the addition of two Bluetooth headsets to their lineup, the PXC 310 BT and PX 210 BT. Both models have onboard media controls, a folding design for travel, rechargeable lithium polymer batteries, and include an adapter and cable for listening to devices that do [...]
The Cirago CMC1000 Multimedia Center is an enigma. I’ve never heard of the company, or the product. Google found a few online sites that carry it, so I can tell you the 500GB model I am reviewing sells for under $190 online, and its 1TB version goes for about $60 more. It sure seems like [...]
I have been using my second generation iPod Shuffle for years now. I primarily use it running and during tasks that would put my Touch in harms way. My Shuffle has truly been a trooper… I have dropped it, washed it, sweat on it, etc. It continues to keep putting along. That said, I tried [...]
Over the years, I’ve tried quite a few devices that allow you to watch and listen to your digital media through your television set. Some of these devices have included WiFi, some included hard drives, some required that you stream the content from a computer to the player and some required that you convert the content to a format that the player could handle. For one reason or another, I stopped using all of those devices except for the AppleTV. I really like the AppleTV’s user interface, but have never really liked the fact that I have to convert the files and then ‘send’ them from my desktop computer to the AppleTV in the living room. I’m all about simplicity, and while the AppleTV comes close, it doesn’t quite get there. I think I’ve found a device that does get there tho. It’s the WD TV HD Media Player from Western Digital.
Is there a place in the market for another MP3 player? What if this one doesn’t require a computer in order to copy music, buy music, etc? Sansa is willing to gamble that the answer to both of those questions is yes, with their new slotMusic player. Keep reading to learn more…
With the massive influx of digital media in the past decade or so, consumers have become aware of the need for some way to use
their media somewhere other than a computer. More specifically, we want to be able to play our music and movies and view our
digital pictures from the comfort of the couch, and with the high definition glory of a 72″ plasma television. Apple, of course,
released the Apple TV. However, other electronics companies have tried to come up with good home media center solutions that
don’t require a full computer running Windows XP Media Center Edition, or Windows Vista Premium or Ultimate.
It’s only been four months since I reviewed Slacker’s first generation Slacker Personal Radio Player, and now they have a new model available called the G2. I’ve loved using their first player, so I was super excited to be able to get my hands on a second generation unit. Second generation units are always better than their predecessors right? Let’s find out…
You’ve no doubt heard of, or have seen the Snowball microphone from BlueMic.
It’s a very popular microphone for podcasters and anyone that wants to record audio. BlueMic have a new microphone
to add to their product line – the Snowflake USB mic. This is their first professional portable USB microphone, and I
think they have another winner on their hands.
MP3 players come in 100′s of different shapes, sizes, colors and capacities. The player I want to show you today is unique because it’s shaped like a Mickey Mouse head. It’s the iRiver Mplayer Disney. The fine folks at Advanced MP3 Players in the UK sent one to me to review.
Autumn is my favorite time of year for a couple different reasons. I love the cooler weather, the changing colors of the leaves and … new Apple iPods! For the last 4 years around this time, we’ve been introduced to a new iPod nano and this year is no different…
One of the few features Apple has yet to integrate into its iPods is the ability
to stream audio wirelessly via bluetooth. With the large number of electronic
devices and accessories either already available or coming on the market with
built-in bluetooth, it seems like Apple should finally make it a reality. But until
that magic moment, iBluon has created the TD02 (available through Brando), a small, lightweight Bluetooth audio transmitter
engineered to connect to the iPod’s connector/sync port.
