In a market that is full of options, you’ve got to offer something special if you’re going to come out with a new wireless portable speaker, especially if you want to attract the interest of people who are used to thinking of other brands. The V-MODA REMIX Bluetooth Speaker enters that market knowing full well what needs to be done.
One of the things I like about my 2015 Macbook Pro is that unlike newer MacBooks, it has the magnetic charger that used to differentiate Apple laptops from all others. If my cable gets bumped or pulled, it breaks free from my laptop — rather than crashing everything to the floor. SynCharge promises to give Type-C MacBooks back that feature.
Pool season is coming up fast, and so are a lot of holidays. If the special people in your life likes to enjoy music outdoors, then they are going to love the new WOW-SOUND waterproof speaker. Available on Indiegogo for as low as $150, the WOW-SOUND is one versatile, excellent sounding, long-lasting Bluetooth speaker.
“Hey, nice watch!”, I heard yet again today. That watch happens to be the Misfit Phase, a connected combination watch and fitness tracker that can count steps, distance, calories, and light as well as restful sleep. With the Misfit app on your iOS or Android device, you can easily keep track of how you are doing.
After doing a lot of reviews on products, some of those products get stored in a bin to be used in case of emergency, and some others? Not so much. I tend to find myself using still other products on a day-to-day basis, and I wanted to highlight a few of them.
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?
Today Marshall announced their latest Bluetooth product that is sure to be on any audiophile’s list of things to buy in 2017. Considered Marshall’s ultimate Bluetooth headphones are the Marshall Monitor Bluetooth Headphones, a premium pair of headphones that will feature Hi-Fi, Bluetooth APTX compatibilities, on top of 30+ hours of studio quality playtime on a single charge.
There are countless portable battery packs on the market today, but one issue that plagues the majority is that you have to bring your own cable with you when you intend on using them. This results in having to wrap the cable around the charger when not in use, making the whole point of a portable charger rather useless.
Apple’s very own Magic Keyboard 2, all while nice like any other Apple product, is awfully expensive compared to its competition. If you are looking for something a bit cheaper that serves the same purpose while looking just as nice, you should really check out the Kanex Mini Multi-Sync Bluetooth Keyboard. We got the chance to get our hands on…
Typing directly on an iPad, or any tablet for that matter could be a huge pain, especially if you intend on doing using it as your daily driver. After watching Federico Viticci discuss how he uses his Apple iPad Pro for virtually everything, I decided to venture into doing it myself.
Tiny, barely there Bluetooth earbuds have been all the rage so far this year, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a market for big, powerful, immersive headphones. Skullcandy asked us to take a look at their new Crusher Wireless headphones, which eschew the skinny in favor of bold, powerful sound. Do they live up their promises?
It would be easy to go into this review with a list of negatives, simply because the Hercules WAE Outdoor 04Plus doesn’t have the depth and power of some of the other portable Bluetooth speakers I’ve reviewed. But let’s back up for a sec and acknowledge that this is a multi-featured, water-resistant, and versatile portable speaker that only costs $79.99!
Over the past month or so, I’ve been running exclusively with my RunIQ, the first ever Android smartwatch created by popular fitness cross trainer company New Balance. Announced earlier this year at CES 2017, the RunIQ has been putting my love for the Apple Watch to test in both practicality, and honestly… looks.
iClever’s BoostRun BTH07 Sweat-proof Bluetooth Sport Headphones are a good budget option if you’ve got an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus without a headphone jack. The BoostRuns stay on your ears thanks to the built-in ear hook, and they are certified IPX4 waterproof to protect itself from rain and sweat. At ~$22, The iClever BoostRun are worth checking out.
Are you one of those people who can’t ever seem to keep up with all of your “stuff”? Whether it’s your keys, your backpack, your wallet, or your remote control — the Pixie can help you keep locate almost anything when it has gone missing.
With wireless being the way that so many headphones have been going, and with built-in 3.5mm jacks becoming rarer, it might seem, I don’t know, maybe a bit retro to review a pair of wired-only headphones. Even so, the Focal Listen Closed Back Over-Ear Headphones are worth a look.
Picture Keeper Connect is the thumb drive you never knew you needed. We’ve all been there, running out of room on your mobile phone, struggling to clean out old photos, videos, and apps. Picture Keeper Connect is a USB thumb drive with a built-in lightning adapter that allows you to easily backup your iOS media and starts at $119.99.
I recently reviewed the Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 headphones; now I’ve got their slightly more upscale brother, the Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 SE, in hand. Everything I enjoyed about the BackBeat PRO 2 is present (do check out their review if you haven’t already), but with the PRO 2 SE headphones, there is even more to love.
I’ve tried plenty of phone holders in my vehicles, but the one thing that always stops me from wanting to keep using them is that they can be bulky, ugly, or they require special attachments to use. The Just Mobile Xtand Vent is a sleek, minimalistic vent holder for your phone. It works well, and it looks good.
One of the things that I used do when packing to go overseas was to make sure that I had my collection of plug adapters and a bulky international power strip ready to go; these days I just make sure that I have the Oneadaptr Twist+ World Adapter DUO.
Finding a spot to plug my USB cables into is a never-ending game that gets played out every day; there are simply more cables than I have ports for, and every new generation laptop seems to come with fewer (if any at all). If you’re in the same boat, the Just Mobile AluCharge can help.
