It’s not often that I see a device that brags on having a built-in CD and DVD player, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t times when I wish I had easy access to both. Take a look at the Radionovelli 4G Radio; it’s an FM, DAB, and internet radio with 4G connectivity, a 7″ screen, and more!

I often feel a bit like a fish out of water. While other movie buffs are replacing all of their DVDs with BluRay, I’m raiding garage sales for videotapes. While other gamers are flocking to games like Fortnite, I’m still playing Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2—on the original PlayStation, at that.
Inspired by Japanese Zen Rocks you’d typically find in gardens are the Pebble USB Desktop Speakers by Creative. The company sent us over a unit to check out, so let’s see how they help our desktop setup.
This week Vizio announced their 2018 fleet of products, giving substantial upgrades to their E, P, M & D Series lines. Starting at $350, the higher end models can go upwards of $2,599.99 depending on the features you desire. However, no matter which model you get, you know that Vizio won’t let you down.
I work from home. And like any self-respecting freelancer, I have a well-stocked home office. Mine has a tall corner desk with all the compartments and drawers you could ask for. But I’m also a bit of an audiophile. I like to listen to music while I work, and I do most of my listening on vinyl.
One of my favorite pairs of headphones is the Bowers & Wilkins P7 which I reviewed early last year. Now I’ve got the Bowers & Wilkins PX in hand, and I’ve got to say, they took everything I liked about the P7 and added even more features: a sleeker style, adaptive noise canceling, 22 hours battery life, and intuitive commands.
The Tutti Studio Matti is a cute, block-shaped wireless speaker with retro styling that wants to be your modern-day boombox. Designed as a portable sound system, the Matti has a thick, molded polymer sub-chassis, steel grills, an aluminum handle, and silicone rubber bumpers for durability. You can even link up to 8 together for massive sound!
The Jabra headsets we’ve reviewed over the years have been consistently impressed us. I reviewed the on-ear Jabra Evolve 75 Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation and keep them at my desk at home. Now, Jabra has taken much of what makes the Evolve 75 great and packed it into the smaller Jabra Evolve 75e neckband headset.
Master & Dynamic, the New York City-based headphones manufacturer that Greg and I adore, has partnered with Leica to bring their new Silver Edition series of headphones; if you’re a fan of the camera brand, you’ll recognize the black, silver, and red styling immediately.
Television technology seems to come in spurts. There are years where it is hard to justify upgrading, and then there are times when your jaw drops and your wallet shudders in fear. It looks like 2018 is going to be the latter thanks to Samsung’s latest QLED TVs.
Proving that a great sounding speaker doesn’t need to fill an entire shelf or look like an ugly black box, the Bowers & Wilkins T7 is compact, beautiful, and it sounds amazing. The T7 gives 18-hours playback from a single charge, and it’s compact enough to bring it along for travel.
Audioengine makes some of my favorite speakers; I’ve reviewed a number of them and use them daily in both my home office and bedroom. Now Audioengine has announced the A5+ Wireless speakers. With pricing starting at $399, the A5+ won’t take up a ton of space but will fill a room with quality sound. That, however, is just the beginning.
Against all expectations, vinyl sales continue to rise. That means that more people than ever are buying record players. However, building a stereo setup for your vinyl can be a difficult undertaking if you don’t know what you’re looking for.
New York City-based audio company (and a favorite here at Gear Diary), Master & Dynamic announced today a collaboration with fine artist Scott Campbell to create a special edition of their most popular headphones to expand their fleet.
Wireless headphones have become a staple in my life and I love getting great sound. Over the ear options are often pretty bulky, so luckily Phiaton has released the BT 390 Compact headphones ($79.99). These smaller headphones fold up for easy carry but do not disappoint with the audio quality. Let’s take a look.
It’s hard to talk about pool parties and camping trips when many of us are still waiting on at least one more winter storm, but spring is coming — and gone are your excuses to stay inside. The Braven Ready Elite is ready for all of your upcoming outdoor adventures; it’s waterproof, shockproof, and it gives 12-hour battery life.
Chocolates and flowers? Hell no! It’s 2018, so if you want to really impress them, you’re going to have step things up. Here are 8 of our favorite gift picks to make them swoon this Valentine’s Day.
Fact: Some things are inexpensive and they perform poorly, and then there are some expensive things which are made to last which perform splendidly. When I received the Shinola Canfield On-Ear Wired Headphones, I had no doubt that their construction was top-notch; I couldn’t help but wonder, though, if their sound would justify their $495 price. Shall we find out?
Among the many headphones and wireless speakers that we saw at Monster’s CES booth, was a small display with three pairs of truly wireless in-ear headphones. They were all similar in style, but one set was aimed towards work-outs. The other two sets were what we were eyeing, though; one look at the Monster Airlink Elements, and we were smitten.
I have a very specific set of requirements for headphones: They need to be budget friendly, sweat proof, fit my ears, and they need to stay put. This seems like a relatively simple list, but finding headphones that adhere to all four is remarkably tough. Earbuds don’t fit my ears right, and over the ear headphones get sweaty easily.
