Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air Speaker/Dock Review

I’ve read in a few audiophile articles that a good, reasonably priced set of stereo speakers paired with an amplifier will trump the best iPod speaker/dock no matter the cost. While that may be true, when I heard the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air, I began to have some doubts. The British company, Bowers & Wilkins …

United SGP Argos iPad 2 Case Review

After wanting one for what felt like forever, I finally bought an iPad 2. All I can say is that it was worth the wait. I am an unapologetic Apple fanboy (Mac user since 1988) and the iPad just makes me more impossible to be around when the discussion turns to tech. But despite the …

Audyssey Lower East Side Audio Dock Air Announced

The one thing I really missed from the Audyssey South of Market speaker dock I recently reviewed was Apple’s AirPlay technology (plus no headphone port, but I digress). I was so sure that the next version of that speaker would have it. I was wrong – sort of. Audyssey has released an AirPlay speaker. It’s just …

Bowers & Wilkins C5 In-Ear Headphones Review

People don’t usually associate Bowers & Wilkins name with reasonably priced audio. Yes, they make killer products, but affordable? Not for the average Joe with little knowledge of how good audio can and should sound. Well, B&W have come out with a pair of earphones that – at least in B&W’s universe – are very …

Zumreed X2 Hybrid Headphones Review

Of all the headphones I have reviewed, it never occurred to me to share what I was listening to with anyone nearby. I mean, that’s what headphones are all about, right? Personal listening. Well, someone decided that you should be able to share your music using your headphones without actually using your headphones. Yes, you …

DUNU-Topsound Earphones Review

One of the more interesting aspects of the (reasonably priced) earphone market is the speed with which the Chinese have become major players worldwide. More surprisingly is how fast these manufacturers have been able to match – and in some cases exceed – the build and audio quality of their Japanese and American competitors. One …

Channel D Pure Music iTunes Plugin Review

Here’s a question for you: If you are less than satisfied with how your favorite music sounds using iTunes on a Mac, where would you first look for a solution? Better speakers? A DAC (digital audio converter)? Soundcard? Higher resolution files? While all of these possible choices will usually improve the audio, chances are you …

C5 In-ear Headphones Coming Soon from Bowers & Wilkins

Following on their 45-year tradition of quality components, excellent build quality and amazing sound, Bowers & Wilkins has built what they consider to be a best in class product in the über-competitive in-ear headphone market. Priced at a not (for B&W) unreasonable $179.95, the C5 could very well be an introduction to that famous B&W …

Audyssey is a company that develops audio technologies for various makers of stereo receivers, televisions, recording studios and major cinemas . So while you may have never heard of Audyssey, you have most definitely heard them. First, let me digress a little from this review with a little anecdote: Once I found out that I …

On the heels of the amazing South of Market speaker dock, Audyssey has released another neighborhood inspired audio product: The Lower East Side Media Speakers.
