Bluetooth speaker

iRoar_2

Creative just won’t leave it alone. First they came out with the Sound Blaster Roar speaker which put almost all other Bluetooth speakers to shame. Then came the Sound Blaster Roar 2 which was 20% smaller, yet improved on the original Roar in almost every way. Now, they’ve dropped the Sound Blaster name entirely and [...]

Fugoo_XL_11

Over a year ago, I reviewed the small, but tough and waterproof Fugoo Bluetooth speaker. It became my choice when I need to just grab a speaker and go. It's not the best sounding portable speaker—that honor goes to the incredible and more expensive Bowers & Wilkins T7—but it does sound great and is one [...]

arina

I really appreciate gadgets that perform their intended function well, but also offer additional features that can simplify and consolidate several gadgets into one to save space, power outlets and more. The Muemma ARiNA Bluetooth speaker does just that. It's a modern looking circular Bluetooth 4.0 speaker that provides 360 degree sound for your favorite [...]

nyne rebel 14a

What is it with strange looking bluetooth speakers?  Earlier this year I had a chance to listen to the hole-in-the-middle Fluance Fi70.  This time, we're going to look at the distinctively angular Nyne Rebel splashproof portable Bluetooth speaker. If you're not familiar with Nyne, we've had a chance to review other speakers, such as the [...]

Braven_BRV_XXL_3

If you thought the rugged Braven BRV-HD was big, think again. The new Braven BRV-XXL Bluetooth speaker is more: more bigger, more louder, more tougher and even more wetter. Yes, that’s bad english, but you get the picture. With the BRV-XXL, Braven has created an outdoor speaker that can be easily carried because of its [...]

Archt One_1

I’m an art director by trade, so I pay almost as much attention to the design of an item as how it performs. Maybe that’s why I’m an unapologetic Apple fan boy. I’m also obsessed with audio gear, so when a new speaker comes out and doesn’t look like anything else, I notice. Archt (pronounced [...]

Raumfeld_9

My father was in the US Air Force, so I grew up as a service brat living around the globe. Many service families residing in Europe (I lived in England), from the 50s to the 70s bought German audio products because they were beautiful, affordable and well built. Ours was a Telefunkin stereo with removable [...]

Paww_Soundbar10_1

Although I’ve had my issues with portable Bluetooth speakers, I’ve grown to appreciate the convenience of having one around. It’s gotten to the point that I almost always have one playing either in the kitchen, bathroom or outdoors cooking. They’ve become indispensable to my daily life. And even though their audio quality can’t measure up to [...]

Twist-LED-light-speaker

Who knew such creativity would explode with the phase out of incandescent bulbs back in 2007? Not me. In fact I stocked up on 100 watt bulbs which will now be available at a steep discount at my next garage sale. We are seeing LEDs everywhere and doing so much more than most of us [...]

Edifier_Rave_MP700_3

The Gadgeteer has reported and reviewed some of Edifier’s speakers and come away impressed—as much as by their design as their sound. One look at the Luna Eclipse or Spinnaker speakers tells you all you need to know. Now Edifier has taken a step back—and forward—by releasing the retro-inspired RAVE MP700 portable Bluetooth speaker. This [...]

Fluance_Fi70-01

Your eyes do not deceive you.  There's a hole in this speaker.  The first time our own Bill Henderson mentioned the Fluance Fi70, I knew I just had to try it.  But would the unusual looks translate into a something that sounded decent?  I've got enough speakers.  Why would I want another?  I told myself I [...]

amazon-tap

Amazon has announced two new Alexa-enabled products today: the Amazon Tap and the Amazon Echo Dot. This post is about the Tap. If you think the Amazon Tap is a portable version of the Amazon Echo you would be right and you would also be wrong. First of all, if you're not familiar with the [...]

UE Megaboom review

ue-megaboom-1

A couple of months ago, I was able to review the UE Boom 2 Bluetooth speaker. I found that it has wonderful audio quality but lacks bass and has a handful of relatively minor issues with the app. This time, I've been given the opportunity to review the UE Megaboom. I found that this speaker [...]

vava-voom-1

In my never-ending quest to find the perfect Bluetooth speaker, I've managed to collect several small, rugged speakers. What I haven't gotten my hands on is a good Bluetooth speaker that is powerful enough to use at a party and stylish enough to not have to hide. While marching forth on my epic audio journey, [...]

Bowers_Wilkins_Zeppelin_1

Back in 2011, I reviewed the then new Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air Speaker/Dock. It was—and still is—an incredible speaker that blows away most wireless speakers. After the review, my wife “helped herself” to it, so it now sits on top of her piano facing the kitchen where she can use Apple Airplay to stream [...]
