Growing up, my parents had a pair of floor standing speakers connected to a reciever with a tape deck and (eventually) CD player.

AMHE303 Mercedes-Benz Limited Edition X Torque in-ear headphones review

I have a warm spot in my heart for Torque Audio.

Pyle takes a Bluetooth speaker and piles on karaoke, AM/FM, a PA system and even wheels and a handle!

You can’t exactly call Pyle’s new Sing and Groove speaker portable, but since it comes with wheels and a retractable handle, you can call it transportable.

Thinksound On2 Monitor headphone review
