Jaybird X3 Wireless Bluetooth Headphones review

I love my MPOW Swift Bluetooth 4.0 Headphones and because of them, Bluetooth earbuds are all I use. I no longer wish to deal with wired earphones. And I’ve found that I like having earbuds over other types of headphones (on-ear or over-the-ear) because they are small and portable, don’t leak sound so as to …

iFrogz Impulse Wireless headphones review

We all need to listen to things on our devices from time to time without the distraction of other noises, or without causing interruption to those around us. Earbuds are the quick-and-dirty solution, but if you’re watching a movie, or sitting down for a good long study/work session, you’re going to want something a little …

Jabees beatBOX MINI TWS Bluetooth speakers look like a great add-on for the Amazon Echo Dot

The Amazon Echo Dot has an internal speaker that can be used to listen to your favorite music, but the Echo Dot’s built-in speaker isn’t powerful enough to fill a large room with music. Connecting a pair of Jabee’s beatBOX MINI TWS speakers can help fill the room with stereo sound. That’s right, the Jabee’s …

Samson QH4 4-channel headphone amplifier review

So, I’m a music guy. I like listening to music, writing music, talking about music, sharing music, and (other present imperfect continuous verbs) music. The SAMSON QH4 is a bit of a multitool for people like me. I can plug a few pairs of headphones into it, and share my music with friends. I can mix on …

Senso ActivBuds S-250 waterproof Bluetooth headphones review

I’ve owned many sets of headphones in my day: Over-the-Ear, On-Ear, Earbuds, Earhook, you name it. But I am a huge fan of the Senso ActivBuds S-250 waterproof Bluetooth headphones. They’re my go-to set for when I’m on the run. Why is that? They’re waterproof (IPX-7 rating), noise-canceling, Bluetooth 4.1, HD stereo earbuds with very …

Low tech solution to finding the right size TV for your space

Figuring out the right size TV to mount on a wall or fit in your entertainment cabinet just got a little easier than holding a tape measure at a diagonal line when you use the TV Sizer. What is it? The TV Sizer is a very low tech solution to a high tech problem. Just …

Fugoo Go portable Bluetooth speaker review

I’ve always had a soft spot for Fugoo speakers. Their rugged build, good sound and incredible battery life won me over. However, the original Fugoo speaker and newer XL version are a bit on the expensive side and anyone on a restrictive budget would be hard-pressed to justify buying a Fugoo speaker no matter how …

ELEPHAS 1200 Lumens LED mini video projector review

Watching video in a large format usually requires a huge TV or a projector. LED projectors have brought the price of a projector far down from what it was just a few years ago. We were offered the ELEPHAS 1200 Lumens LED Mini Video Projector to test, and I won the office pool to get it. …

Optoma NuForce BE6i Bluetooth wireless headphones review

Several months back, in August 2016, I reviewed the Optoma NuForce BE6 Bluetooth wireless headphones. Not long after that review was posted here, Julie let me know that Optoma had already released an updated version of the NuForce BE6, called the  NuForce BE6i. Overall I’d been happy with the NuForce BE6, with the exception of some issues …

Let LittleCane “support” your cinematic video

Most of the time that I record video on my phone I can find something solid to lean against to avoid the inevitable shaking that results from holding the phone freehand. If I anticipate that I’ll be taking an action shot then I’ll record through Hyperlapse. But what if I really want to go to the next …

FiiO X1 II high resolution music player review

FiiO is a fascinating company. In an age where people are increasingly using smart phones as their sole source of music, FiiO flies in the face of that trend by releasing portable digital audio players (DAP) that don’t do anything else. The market for DAPs is actually growing owing mainly to the exploding headphone market. …
