PureGear PureBoom Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds review

I’ve been on the hunt for a set of wireless headphones for quite a while, even before Apple declared is “war on wires” (my words, not theirs) with their latest iPhone 7 models. My main criterion for wireless headphones was that I could wear them while working out, meaning that they wouldn’t be negatively affected by …

Vidbox Video Conversion Suite review

The news announcement came with little recognition, but in July 2016, Funai Electric produced the last video cassette recorder (VCR) as the only remaining manufacturer of this technology. Although VHS cassettes will continue to be manufactured, this effectively signaled the official death of the format. Most people won’t be impacted by these announcements since VHS doesn’t factor …

Optoma NuForce BE6 Bluetooth wireless headphones review

Bluetooth headphones: There are a ton of them out there, right? Why review another one? Because we’re The Gadgeteer, and that’s what we do. I’d been on the hunt for a good set of wireless headphones for a while, so I was excited about Julie’s offer to review one of the newer products in this …

Phiaton BT 460 Headphones review

When listening to music or watching a movie on a device, I crave great sound and comfort out of my headphones. Since these two criteria are often quite subjective, it would seem that what works for one person, may not for another which seems to be the challenge of producing headphones that are within a …

Denon takes a shot at Sonos with the revamped HEOS HS2 system

Audio company Denon has gone after multi-room speaker maker Sonos in a big way with their revamped HEOS HS2 line of speakers. When I reviewed the original Heos 1 wireless speaker, one of my complaints about it was it lacked Bluetooth—unless you bought the Heos Go Pack, a $100 addition which also included a rechargeable …

House of Marley Liberate XLBT Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones review

I consider myself an average person with an average budget for headphones (around $60 or less) and I’ve been fairly happy with my purchases. I’ve shied away from trying out more expensive ones in the stores because I haven’t been prepared to spend premium dollars on them and I didn’t want to spoil my blissful …

MPOW Swift Bluetooth 4.0 Headphones review

I only use in-ear headphones when exercising and have used a cheap wired Philips set (SHQ3200) for years, but now I think it’s time for a Bluetooth set. I recently reviewed an iClever IC-BTH01 Bluetooth Stereo Headset and thought it was a decent pair but lacked the strong bass I like when working out. Since I …

Denon Heos 3 wireless speaker review

Installing a whole home audio system used to be a chore. Now with wireless systems like the Korus V400 and V600 (reviewed on the Gadgeteer), Sonos, and others, you no longer have to deal with the hassle of hard wiring the speakers into your home. You can even buy speakers one at a time and easily expand …

LG 21:9 UltraWide IPS LED monitor (29EA73) review

When I sold my 27 inch iMac a few years ago and switched to a 13 inch Macbook Air, it took me a little time to get used to having less screen real estate. For the most part I haven’t had too much trouble doing my work on the small screen. But for the last …

ABCO Tech Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Shower Speaker Auto FM Shower Radio review

I am a big fan of audiobooks and podcasts.  I am an even bigger fan of listening to them while in the shower.  In the past, I have done this by cranking up the volume on my desktop stereo system that I have hooked up to my desktop computer’s sound card.  This produces enough volume …

Earbuds.  The little buggers are all over the place, aren’t they?  Hanging out of people’s ears everywhere you look.  Because we need ’em to connect to our portable digital music gizmos, they’ve become essential gear for many of us.  And there are droves of earbud models, many that look virtually identical.  The Moshi Moonrock stood …
