Treblab HD Max portable Bluetooth speaker review – big sound for little bucks

REVIEW – So many speakers—so little time. That’s how I’ve been feeling lately because a LOT of portable Bluetooth speakers have come out in 2020 and now 2021. Yeah, I know—first-world problem.

Dreametech dreams big with the Dreame Bot L10 Pro robot vacuum

NEWS – If you own a newer iPhone, chances are it has LiDAR. LiDAR is like radar but uses lasers instead of sound waves. It’s far more accurate and way faster than radar ever can be. LiDAR is used in mapping and navigation, but can also be used on a much smaller scale—like a vacuum …

Audioengine HD4 Home Music System speakers review – just right in both size and sound

REVIEW – Four years ago (has it been 4 years?), I reviewed the Audioengine HD3 speakers. In that review, I said that the HD3 speakers were better than Audioengine’s much more expensive HD6 speakers when placed on a computer desk.

Brennan BB1 Internet Radio review – an iPod on steroids?

REVIEW – You’re excused if you’ve never heard of the UK audio company Brennan. I hadn’t either until recently. It’s a small company with only a couple of products—the B2 CD ripper and my review, the BB1 Internet radio. Brennan’s namesake, Martin Brennan likens the BB1 to an “iPod on steroids”. That may be, but …

RHA TrueControl Active Noise Canceling Earbuds review – Great sound, not comfortable, and comfortable

REVIEW – I’ve been a fan of RHA for many years. This 10-year old Scottish company has seldom disappointed with whatever they’ve produced—from affordable to quite expensive (and quite good) earphones, as well as a headphone DAC/amp (discontinued). RHA also does not rest on its success. They continually innovate and upgrade their line. Case in …

Gadgeteer team’s work from home (WFH) setups – Bill Henderson

ARTICLE – For years, employees at our office have been asking to work from home—to deaf ears. Covid changed all that.

Tribit QuietPlus 78 headphone review – sometimes a swivel is all it takes

REVIEW – When I reviewed the Tribit QuietPlus 50 headphone, I said, “At $60, the QuietPlus 50 is the least expensive of four QuietPlus models Tribit offers. Heck, the most expensive—Tribit QuietPlus 78—is only $20 more.” And wouldn’t you know, Tribit sends me the QuietPlus 78 headphone to review. So, is the QuietPlus 78 $20 …
