When my daughter first envisioned herself at college this year, she saw herself zipping around campus on her bike, listening to music as she rides to class with a cool wind in her hair.  She found out that it was hot and humid with no cool winds, the path was uphill on her way to all her [...]

voxoa-9

I'm not normally a fan of over the ear style headphones because they feel a little too isolating and usually aren't that comfortable to me. When the VOXOA HD Wireless Headphones were offered to me to review, my first thought was to offer them to Bill H. or the rest of the Gadgeteer team, but [...]

MuseMini ClipR review

MuseMini ClipR-1

We all probably have our favorite pair of headphones/earphones that we like to use with our smart devices. The problem I find is that I am often in situations that make it hard to use my headphones/earphones with my smart device. Situations like working out or traveling when I don't want my cord to dangle [...]

Despite knowing better, I rarely check the tire pressure in my vehicles.  I rely on the TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) in my newer car to let me know when I'm below a certain level, but in the case of my 2005 vehicle and motorcycles, I don't worry about it until they go flat.  Probably [...]

MPOW 10

I really like the convenience and features of a hands-free Bluetooth headset, however, when I wear them I can't  get passed the stigma of the hands-free headset sticking out of my ear like a small USB thumb drive.  Nevermind the ones with a boom mic  protruding down the side of my face towards my mouth. Don't get [...]

SherwoodEXM304

Portable speaker systems range in price from $20-30 for the little pocket-sized ones to huge $600-800 units that can become your entire stereo. Where's the sweet spot? We've reviewed many here at The Gadgeteer, and the ones I actually consider for purchase or gifting usually fall somewhere in the $100-$250 range. I was sent Sherwood's [...]

bluetooth-sound-enhancing-amp

The Bluetooth Sound Enhancing Amplifier looks like steampunk, but it has some modern features married with some old technology.  The amplifier uses two 6N3 vacuum tubes to "generate 20 RMS watts per channel of distortion-free signal, adding punch and clarity to high bit-rate MP3s, Apple Lossless, or CD-quality audio played wirelessly from an iPhone, iPad, iPod [...]

Ion Cassette Adapter Bluetooth_1

Anybody with an older car can relate to this: You have a smartphone with all the latest Bluetooth connectivity, but your car stereo is still oh so 90s with its cassette and maybe CD player. No USB. No AUX port. Certainly no Bluetooth… until now. Ion has made it possible for any Bluetooth-enabled device to [...]

Zepp sensor for golf review

Zepp Lab Zepp sensor-1

Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer, three great golfers I will never be like. Let's face it, three golfers most of us will never be like. What makes these golfers or most professional golfers so much better than the rest of us? Why are they on the tour and we are not? I mean besides the [...]

kinivo-bluetooth-receiver

My car doesn't have Bluetooth connectivity, so I have to plug my iPod into the Apple-specific input jack in my car to listen to music through the car's speakers.  If I had the Kinivo BTC450 Bluetooth Hands-free Car Kit, I could add Bluetooth streaming and hands-free calling just by plugging into the 3.5mm audio jack [...]

One thing that's almost certain is that the quality of the sound from flat screen TV speakers rarely equals the quality of the picture.  It's understandable, considering the size and location of the speakers.  You can of course invest in a surround-sound system and wire up your TV viewing room, or there is the option [...]

Panasonic KX-TG9541-1

Who reading this doesn't have a cell/smart phone? With mobile technology today, I would venture to guess a lot of our readers have done away with an old-fashioned line (landline or VOIP) in favor of cellular service. But, what if you have both a cell phone and a line service, or what if you just [...]
