Bluetooth speaker

Marley Get Together-01b

I've been on a personal quest to find the "perfect" Bluetooth speaker.  This time, I get to check out one unit that struck me with handsome good looks from The House of Marley called the Get Together.  Do sound and function match outward appearances? According to their website, The House of Marley "is built on [...]

The JamSpot Tablet Stand holds your tablet or phone while you use it or while you watch videos.  Lots of stands do that, but not many add Bluetooth speakers so that you can actually hear the video you're watching.  The JamSpot folds up to fit in your gear bag for travel, and its multi-angle and [...]

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 [...]

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.

ihome-sound-flask-ibt32

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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.

Auris_zwing_2

Up until now, any Bluetooth or Airplay speakers were dependent on the device that was doing the streaming, whether it be a laptop, smartphone or desktop computer. It’s no big deal that the new, portable auris zwing portable speaker/boombox does that, but it will also do it independently of any device—as in all by itself. [...]

Soen_Transmit_XS_2

Apple doesn’t sell just any Bluetooth speaker in their online store, so Soen scored a coup of sorts with their new Transit XS portable—and mountable—Bluetooth speaker. The Transit XS is the smaller cousin to the original Transit. Besides its size, the XS model is different in a few ways from the bigger Transit. The XS [...]

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 [...]

Geneva_Areosphere_2

Geneva Labs has been making many different high-end speakers for a while now. Even though they make many models, S, M, L, XL and XXL, they’ve all been box-shaped and visual clones of each other—only in different sizes. That’s about to change in a dramatic way. Geneva has introduced the the AeroSphère series, an audio [...]

QUBFour2.jpg

In the continuing expansion of the Bluetooth speaker market, I have noticed a few trends. There are those designed for personal, near-field listening. These boost the sound from your tablet or smartphone enough that you can hear it as a bubble around your person, but those further away hear it as tinny noise. Next, there [...]

Bluetooth speakers come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. They make them small enough to carry in your pocket or on your keychain and design them to snap on your bicycle handle bars or fit in your car's cup holder. They even make Bluetooth speakers that can float in your swimming pool. All of these novelty [...]
