A few weeks ago, we reviewed the Wally Micro, the smallest of Distil Union’s wallet offerings. The Micro is great if you want to travel light. At the other end of the spectrum is the Distil Union Wally Agent Billfold Wallet. It isn’t all that large, but it holds significantly more than the Micro. Here’s a look.

Some time ago, I wrote about the V-MODA Forza Metallo Wireless Headphones. With this new offering, V-MODA cut the cord without compromising on sound or battery life. This “Neckband Headphone” design gives you wireless, handsfree music on the go while delivering V-MODA’s amazing sound. I’ve been using them for a few weeks now, and I absolutely love these headphones.
If you love great audio, be it music that moves you or movie audio that draws you into the experience playing out on the screen, you will want to check out the Aftermaster Pro. This is an unusual device that doesn’t fit easily into a specific category so let’s take a look at the range of functions it offers.
Between Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and various graduations, the spring gift-giving season is here. If you are looking for something special, check out Jabra.com. They have a host of great products your loved-one will appreciate. Here are three of our favorites: the Jabra Elite Sport, the Jabra Halo Smart Bluetooth Headset, and the Jabra Speak 710 Bluetooth Speaker and Speakerphone.
I stopped using a desktop computer a few years ago and went all-in with laptops and tablets. Still, there are times when a large desktop with a plentiful screen is better suited to productivity. Thanks to my 2016 MacBook Pro and the AOC Q2781PQ 27″ Quad HD Ultra Slim Frameless IPS Monitor I have just that. I’m a happy geek.
I love Waterfield products and am always positively inclined toward them from the start. After using the Waterfield Syde for MacBook Pro for the past weeks, I’m happy to say that the company that makes some of my favorite bags has continued to do just that. The Syde is a fantastic bag for those who are looking to travel light.
The BeMe D200 are yet another contender for best lightning earbuds. Although they cost a seemingly pricey $169.99, thanks to their excellent sound, straightforward app and effective onboard active noise cancellation, they are worth serious consideration if you want to up your game from the dismal lightning EarPods Apple includes with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
“These cost how much?” Raina asked. “Just listen to them,” I urged. Raina put on the headphones and played some of her favorite tunes.“ It didn’t take long for her to become a fan of Focal’s Elear Open-Back Headphones. But at $1000 a pair, she’s not sure they would be a wise purchase.
If you are looking for a security system that won’t cost an arm and a leg to install and maintain check out the Home8 Security System. It is a complete package in a box that offers your choice of free or inexpensive monitoring for far less than you might expect. It is truly DIY home security done right.
As I’ve written previously, I love V-MODA products and have anxiously been waiting for the V-MODA Forza Metallo Wireless to arrive. They cut the word without compromising on sound or battery life thanks to their “Neckband Headphone” design that wrap the battery and controls around the neck as the earbuds extend from thin wires to reach your ears.
This is the first of a series of reviews of Distil Union wallets. All feature thoughtful design and are all well-crafted. This being the first review I thought I would begin with the smallest of the review samples I was sent- the Wally Micro. This is the smallest wallet I have ever used, and I’m amazed how much it holds.
If you are one of the growing people who does a good bit of your work with people who aren’t in the same space as you, you owe it to yourself to check out the Logitech ConferenceCam Connect conferencing system. I call it a “system” because, while the Logitech Connect is portable, it’s amazingly flexible and serves a variety of…
At $79.99 Grand Trunk’s medium Compression Pack Cube might appear a bit too pricey. There are, after all, much less expensive travel cubes on the market. After using the review sample I received on a few trips, though, I’m a huge fan. It is a great way to pack your items before the trip and keep clean and soiled garments…
V-MODA headphones are, consistently, my favorite line of headphones. And my favorite V-MODA offering? The V-MODA Crossfade Wireless Over-Ear headphones. The headphones offer the best of both worlds. They are amazing wired headphones and, fantastic wireless headphones too. Now the company is launched the next generation of their wireless headphones. The V-MODA Crossfade 2 Wireless Over-Ear headphones look amazing!
Portable? Yes. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Enabled? Yes. Rechargeable Battery? Yes. Talk and Touch Control? Yes. Android Tablet With Touchscreen? Yes. Stereo Speakers? Yes. And perhaps best of all, the Clarity Speaker works with both Amazon Alexa and Google Voice services. It’s coming soon and we can’t wait to check it out. Preorder pricing is $149. After that, it is $199.
It was already happening but Apple removing the 3.5mm headphone jack from the iPhone 7 advanced the case for wireless headphones significantly. Plantronics set out to make a pair of affordable wireless? headphones that didn’t make you compromise. The result? The Plantronics Backbeat 500 Series Wireless Headphones. At under $80 they are affordable. But are they any good?
My living room offers a great media experience thanks to a large 4K Vizio display and full surround-sound audio system via Sonos. The bedroom has the 55” Vizio display I reviewed. (Read the review) Thanks to the JBL Cinema SB450 Soundbar, our bedroom offers a great audio experience; this is an impressive audio system, and I am a huge fan.
I want to start this review of the Sapira mattress a bit differently than most reviews I do. Yes, I love this mattress, and the review will be overwhelmingly positive, but I want to begin focused on the fact that Sapira not only makes a great mattress but also does good in the world as part of their corporate mission.
I love having a home that is increasingly “smart-enabled.” We have two fans with light kits, a Thermostat and an increasingly large number lights that are “smart.” All of it connects and is controlled through our Amazon Echo, but there are times when you don’t want to use your smartphone or voice for control. Enter the fantastic Logitech POP.
At the start of 2017, Judie wrote a review of the OPCOM GrowBox hydroponic system. It lets her grow a variety of vegetables and herbs inside her home, and it is an impressive system; you can read her review here. At CES 2017, OPCOM introduced the GrowFrame; it looks amazing.
The X-Doria Stash Case for iPhone 7 is under $20, but it feels and functions like a far more expensive case. It’s highly protective and holds a couple of cards without becoming a bulky brick of a case. That makes it a great option for anyone who is looking to travel light but still needs a license and credit card.
