Samson QH4 is one of those products designed for professional musicians but also makes sense for non-professionals who simply want to share their music with others while wearing headphones. The Samson QH4 is “a 4-channel headphone amplifier designed to distribute your audio to up to four individual headphones, each with its own volume control.” And there’s much more.
Bragi is a company that prides themselves on being the creators of the world’s first hearable. Since then there have been many imitators, and some brands, even Apple who’ve attempted to take a blueprint written by Bragi and right their wrongs. The true test though, is can Bragi do this themselves? Once upon a time, there was a Kickstarter that…
If you want to get into the headphones market, you either need the push that a recognizable name can provide or you need to create something unique; this is especially true once you get into the $250+ range. With the introduction of the EVEN H2 wireless headphones, EVEN, a brand you might not have heard of yet, does just that.
Focal makes excellent full-size headphones, but it’s not always practical to travel with, carry, or wear them. Perhaps with that in mind, Focal has added two in-ear headphones that are surprisingly well priced. Whether you prefer wired or wireless in-ear headphones, the new Focal Spark headphones have you covered.
I purchased my first Amazon Echo when it was first released. Since then I have added a few Echo Dots, and the Alexa ecosystem has become central to my homes smart functionality. The Echo Dot, however, has a small, crappy speaker. Thanks to the $49.95 VAUX Speaker for Echo Dot, however, that is no longer the case.
Plantronics has formally announced the new Voyager 8200 UC, and it looks amazing. The company has been making some impressive moves in the area of headphones with active noise cancellation, and the new Voyager 8200 US takes things to a new level.
If ‘mass-produced with inexpensive components’ doesn’t sound like something you’d be interested in when considering your next set of headphones, then you’ll be pleased to know that you have options. Aëdle’s VK-2 Legacy Dynamic High-Performance On-Ear Headphones are designed and assembled by hand with quality materials in small batches; their look is refined yet striking, but how do they sound?
Anker is a well-known electronics company that is a personal favorite of mine. Over the past few years, I’ve used their portable battery chargers, cables, and various accessories to make sure My gadgets are never without a full charge. And soon there will be one more accessory that everyone needs to check out from them, the Liberty+ True Wireless Earphones.
There are many Bluetooth speaker options out there. Most offerings are a single speaker to make them easy to carry. The KNZ GoDuo brings a unique design allowing for single carry portability as well as stereo sound. The successful Kickstarter campaign still has early bird options available for $79; let’s take a look.
Last year, I reviewed the Focal Listen Headphones; even though they were wired, I thought they were excellent. It was only a matter of time before Focal introduced a Listen wireless version, and now it is here. They’ve also added two in-ear headphones to their line-up: Spark and Spark Wireless.
Chances are you’ve heard of a company named Bose, but if you haven’t, then you may have seen they make all types of audio products from speakers to headphones. If you’re into sports, you’ve seen plenty of athletes wearing their products, especially their Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless headphones.
The launch of the iPhone 7 in 2016 caused a stir for many reasons (same design, price hikes, no USB-C), but none seemed to annoy people more than the exclusion of a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.
UrbanEars is a popular headphone company that is known for their colorful audio equipment that is durable, yet practical in pricing. Well, the company sent me over their Stadion Wireless (not to be confused with Studio) headphones to try out, and the question lingers, how good are they?
With summer right around the corner and pools officially open, chances are you’re looking for a really nice speaker to listen to your tunes when you’re on the pool deck, or even sitting in the sand on the beach. Well, look no further as the FUGOO Style-S may be the only essential you need (other than your towel) this summer.
If you have a spare $1500, and you want to experience exceptional headphones that were “inspired and designed by Quincy Jones”, then you could get the AKG N90Q. But if $1500 isn’t quite realistic for your situation, and you’re still interested in trying Jones’ signature sound, then you should take a look at the $200 JBL E55BT Quincy Edition Headphones.
If you enjoy listening to music on headphones, but you don’t want the bother of bringing your phone along while you do it, STREAMZ Voice Controlled Smart Streaming Headphones might be just what you’ve been waiting for.
I’ve long been a fan of AKG’s headphones. I like their aesthetics. I like their build. Most importantly, I like the tuning that AKG brings to their music products. It simply sounds good to my ears. That’s why I was excited to check out the new AKG N60NC Wireless. I’ve reviewed the N60NC but now… they’ve cut the cord!
Some time ago, I brought word that Blue Microphones was deepening their headphone bench with the introduction of their first pair of wireless headphones. The Blue Satellite Wireless headphones build upon what is, in a short time, a stellar reputation. The new Satellite Wireless Headphones with ANC and an onboard Amp are, in a word, “Impressive.”
When I first received my pair of VAIN STHLM Commute wireless headphones, I was actually more interested in the company rather that the headphones themselves. A brand I never heard of before, based out of Sweden that specializes on headphones peaked my interest, and just from the presentation of the Commute Wireless Bluetooth Headphones, I was prepared for a treat.
Last year, VIZIO sent a 2016 VIZIO SmartCast M-Series Ultra HD HDR Home Theater Display for review. We set it up in our bedroom and love it! (Read the review here.) So I was thrilled when VIZIO offered me one of their brand new 36″ 5.1 VIZIO SmartCast Wireless Sound Bar Systems. It is the perfect complement to the display.
