Aiaiai Capital Headphone review

A while back, I reviewed Aiaiai’s TMA-1 headphones, which I quite liked because they sounded really good, were very comfortable and were built to take abuse.

VXi BlueParrott Xpress Bluetooth Noise-Canceling Wireless Headset Review

For years I have been a Bluetooth headset evangelist.  I have reviewed many Bluetooth headsets for The Gadgeteer (see related links for some of my reviews).  I have long since gotten over any self-conscious feelings about looking like an employee in the McDonald’s drive-thru, and I have embraced my inner, and outer, geekness.  Then along …

Eco Sound Bluetooth Headset Review

Clean, neat, and functional. What more would you want in a Bluetooth earpiece?

I’ve tried Bluetooth headsets before. Some I’ve liked, and some I’ve lost. Often, the same one met both fates. I quit buying them because they are usually fairly expensive to replace. Enter the EcoSound Bluetooth Headset from WirelessGround which is selling this headset for less than $10. This is insane for a Bluetooth headset! Must …

MEElectronics M9P Hi-Fi Sound-Isolating In-Ear Headphones with Microphone Review

I’m one of those people who have ears that just don’t work with the Apple earbud headsets. I really prefer the in-ear style, which is why I was eager to review the MEElectronics M9Ps. They’re priced just above the bulk earbud prices, have an interesting style, and looked like they’d be a good solution for …

Sound ID 510 Bluetooth Headset Review

There comes a point in the life of any given technology where it has matured enough that the quality of the basic features starts to plateau, and new entries into the market necessarily rely on style or unique features.  Bluetooth headsets have started to reach this plateau, with each being able to provide — at …
