Celia & Perah M2 Portable Hi-Fi Speaker review – Can a small speaker be called hi-fi?

REVIEW – At the beginning of the pandemic lockdown in the spring of 2020, I reviewed two DIY speakers—the R1 and R2—from a boutique audio company called Celia & Perah. I stated that building these speakers was perfect for doing something together as a family and having something useful to show for it—a decent-sounding speaker/radio. …

Master & Dynamic MW08 True Wireless Earphones and MC100 review – a great combination

REVIEW – Three months ago, I reviewed the Master & Dynamic MW08 True Wireless Earphones and said that they are better than M&D’s previous MW07 Plus earphones in every way. Well, M&D has never been one to sit on their success for long. In a couple of short months, they’ve already introduced the MW08 Sport …

TCL MOVEAUDIO S600 TWS earbuds review – an affordable alternative to AirPods Pro

REVIEW – You might think that when choosing totally wireless earphones, the sound quality would be the deciding factor. Maybe not. There’s also comfort, call quality, ease of use, brand cachet, and of course—price to consider. Generally, you can have any five of the six listed. For instance, if you opt for sound, comfort, call …

Ultenic U11 cordless vacuum cleaner review – great for hard floors

REVIEW – Recently, I reviewed the Dyson V15 Detect+ cordless stick vacuum cleaner and it’s phenomenal. However, the Dyson is über expensive and is financially out of reach of many households. But that doesn’t mean a good—and affordable—cordless stick vacuum cleaner is unattainable. Far from it. There are many out there and this is a …

Tribit Home speaker review – it’s not just a speaker

REVIEW – It’s always fun when a smaller audio company comes from seemingly nowhere and begins besting the bigger boys in both price and audio quality. Case in point: Tribit. I‘ve reviewed some of their Bluetooth speakers and headphones and been impressed by both—the speakers more than the headphones. The Tribit line of speakers looks …

Dyson V15 Detect+ cordless stick vacuum cleaner review – The best one yet.

REVIEW – There’s an old saying that says, “The more things stay the same, the more they change.” Wait—that’s backward. No matter, because it applies where Dyson is concerned. Their line of cordless stick vacuum cleaners has revolutionized the market. It seems everyone is now copying what Dyson began. Years ago, we bought a Dyson …

Bowers & Wilkins PI7 in-ear true wireless headphones review – definitely worth the wait

REVIEW – Ten years ago (has it been 10 years?), I reviewed Bowers & Wilkins first earphones—the C5. They sounded good but were not comfortable for my ears.  I couldn’t really enjoy them for more than an hour. Fast forward to now—B&W has come out with their first wireless earphones, the PI5 and PI7 (reviewed …

XP-Pen Artist 22 Display and Deco Fun Graphics tablets review – digital art creation on any budget

REVIEW – For eons (in computer time), Wacom has dominated the graphics and display tablet market. However, over the last few years, the competition has been heating up and this is good for the industry and especially for customers. XP-Pen is a tablet company that has been striving to become the David to Wacom’s Goliath …

X-Chair Elemax Cooling, Heat and Massage Unit review – My opinion runs hot and cold

REVIEW – Last year, I reviewed The X-Chair X2 K-Sport Mgmt Chair (long name) and it has become my daily WFH chair. Then in February of this year, I reviewed another X2-HMT K-Sport Mgmt Chair with an added heat/massage function for the lower back. I really like the heat and massage therapy (HMT) option, but …

Meters OV-1-B-Connect headphone review – Know how loud your music is

REVIEW – When you listen to music using headphones, do you crank up the volume? Hearing experts say that loud noise can leave permanent damage to your hearing. But how loud is too loud? Well, the answer is a bit complicated. Sound is measured in decibels (dB) and too high a measurement can be harmful. …

Jackery Explorer 1500 Portable Power Station review – Absolute power

REVIEW – When the Britisher Lord Acton famously said in the 1800s, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” he obviously wasn’t referring to portable power stations—electricity wasn’t even in homes yet. However, today the opposite is true. Getting absolute power from portable power sources like the Jackery Explorer 1500 Portable Power Station corrupts nothing. …

Pecron E1500 Portable Power Station review – Power to the people

REVIEW – Is it my imagination or are portable battery power stations becoming “a thing”? It seems like every week I see more and more ads or reviews on these large (and heavy) battery backups—and that’s a good thing! I live in Central Florida and each summer, we keep an eye on the weather radar …

Master & Dynamic MW08 True Wireless Earphones review – Better in every way

REVIEW – Just before the pandemic hit in 2020, I reviewed the wonderful (but flawed) Master & Dynamic MW07 Plus earphones—easily one of the best sounding wireless earphones at any price. The one weakness was too subtle (for me) active noise canceling (ANC). It just wasn’t very effective. As the old saying goes, time marches …

QuietOn 3 Active Noise Cancelling earbuds review – No music, just quiet

REVIEW – Are you a light sleeper? Do noises in the night wake you up? Does your partner snore? Do you wear earplugs when you sleep? If you answered yes to any of these questions, active noise canceling (ANC) may help. In today’s stress-filled world of constant interruptions and 24/7 communication, a good night’s sleep …

The Melomania Touch and 1+ in-ear monitors review – Can you have your audio cake and hear it too?

REVIEW – A couple of years ago, I reviewed the Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 earphones. In that review, I said, “If the fit and call quality issues can be worked out, these earbuds should be at or near the top of any list”. Well, Cambridge Audio did work out the fit issues—sort of. They took …
