EGO POWER + 18 in. battery powered chain saw review

REVIEW – It began with a blower. Three years ago, I reviewed the EGO 530 CFM Blower. It wasn’t something I looked forward to because hey—it’s a blower. As it turns out, I could not have been more wrong. That blower began a love affair with all things EGO. Since then, I’ve used and reviewed …

Audeze LCDi3 In-Ear Headphone review

REVIEW – In-ear headphones (earphones) generally fall into two camps: Dynamic or Armature. Dynamic speaker designs look like tiny versions of headphone speakers. Even tinier armature speakers come from the hearing aid industry and don’t even look like traditional speakers at all. Today, most earphones use either dynamic or armature designs—or a combination of both …

Master & Dynamic GO and go silent

NEWS – Once again, Master & Dynamic are busy upgrading their existing line of earphones. The iconic MW07 True Wireless Earphone has gone silent—as in active noise canceling (ANC) silent—with the MW07 Plus. Yet, M&D didn’t stop there.

Braven gets even more rugged with BRV speaker collection

NEWS – Over the past few years, I have reviewed many Braven portable Bluetooth speakers and have liked all of them—some more than others. When Incipio sold Braven to ZAGG last year, it seemed much of Braven’s speaker line began to disappear. No more. This year, Braven has added four new speakers to its BRV …

Waterfield Executive Leather Messenger Bag review

REVIEW – Okay, a bag or backpack is technically not a gadget—I get that. But you gotta carry your stuff (gadgets included) in something, so I’m reviewing a new something to do just that— the Executive Leather Messenger Bag from Waterfield Designs.   What is it? The Executive Leather Messenger Bag is the successor to …

Creative MUVO Play portable and waterproof Bluetooth speaker review

REVIEW – In my years of reviewing portable Bluetooth speakers, one of my all-time favorites is the Creative iRoar speaker. It’s becoming a cliché, but that little desktop monster sounds way bigger than its size. The iRoar is that rare Bluetooth speaker you can listen to all day without wishing you had something bigger or …

V-Moda Over-ear Headphone Custom Shield Kit review

REVIEW – In the world of headphones, design can be as important as: 1. Sound; 2. Quality; and 3. Comfort. Many times it seems like you can have any two of them—just not all three. V-Moda is one headphone maker that disagrees with that. Their headphones—beginning with the original Crossfade to the latest wireless Crossfades—are …

Kärcher K2000 electric pressure washer review

REVIEW – When I review a gadget, audio gear or household item, I seldom write about a product’s long-term durability. The reason for this is that we at The Gadgeteer strive to write reviews quickly so you can make an informed buying decision sooner. I wish we did, but we don’t have a year to …

Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 true wireless in-ear monitors review

REVIEW – There are two things to consider when looking at the new Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 true wireless in-ear monitors. The first is that everyone who makes wireless earbuds is gunning for Apple by trying to come up with the next  “AirPod killer.” The other, less obvious thing is calling these wireless earbuds “monitors” …

ShiftCam Aspherical Ultra Wide Angle Lens review

REVIEW – Let me state up front: I am not a photographer—pro or serious amateur. My camera is my iPhone XS Max. I once desired a DSLR camera, but as smartphones have gotten ridiculously good at photos and videos, I gave up on that expensive quest. Which brings us to the ShiftCam Aspherical Ultra Wide …

Dyson Pure Cool TP04 purifying fan review

REVIEW – It’s clear by now Dyson is all about air movement, whether it’s sucking (vacuuming) or blowing (fans). Their vacuum cleaners—especially the newer Dyson cordless stick models—are practically legendary and the fans have also become quite popular. Now, Dyson has incorporated an air purifier into their floor-standing tower fan making air in a room …
