For Their Anniversary, Master & Dynamic Reissues a Classic-Yet-Updated Over-Ear

2019 has been an exciting year for Master & Dynamic — what with their new MW07s, teaming with Kevin Durant for their Noise Cancelling headphones, and even issuing their MW65’s. But it’s their fifth anniversary, and this year and the New York City-based brand has decided to take it back to basics with a slight upgrade that users will love. Master & Dynamic’s way of celebrating a half-decade of premium…




Braven BRV-X/2 Is Ready for Winter Adventures

We’ve followed Braven from the company’s first appearance on the scene. Back then they were a small company looking to make their mark in the crowded Bluetooth speaker market. They succeeded. The company, now owned by ZAGG, continues to innovate. Their latest? The Braven BRV -X/2. It’s small, gets great battery life and is tough as nails for under $100.


Master & Dynamic Announce Two New True Wireless Earphones

Master & Dynamic have been on a roll lately with a new product every few months. They just announced two new true wireless earphone offerings. The MW07 PLUS are an update to the spectacular MW07s while the smaller and more affordable MW07 GO offer a similar, but smaller design. Both look great but the MW 07 GO really caught my eye.


iFrogz AIRTIME PRO Truly Wireless Earbuds Are Under $70!

Some time ago, I reviewed the iFrogz Airtime Truly Wireless Earbuds plus Charging Case. They surprised me. The small, inexpensive earbuds were not only comfortable and offered a secure fit, but they sounded pretty darn good. (Read my review.) The $69.99 iFrogz AIRTIME PRO True Wireless Earbuds offer a more AirPod-esque design, but are they worth the extra money?




Mixcder HD901 Wireless Headphones Offer a Great Value

Until very recently, wireless headphones were seen as premium items but with fewer and fewer devices coming with headphone jacks, having affordable wireless headphones has become important. Mixcder HD901 headphones offer fantastic value for anyone looking for wireless listening without breaking the bank.


AUSOUNDS’s AU-Stream ANC Earbuds: The Better “Pods”

Two of the biggest things I’ve longed from my Airpods seem simple enough — Active Noise Cancellation with a battery life of longer than 3.5 hours. And if they could come in black, that wouldn’t be bad either. Luckily with the AU-Stream ANCs, I finally might have all of the things that I wanted.


Thermoworks Signals Is the Best Smart Thermometer for your BBQ

Thermoworks is our favorite thermometer producer because they are known for producing high quality, highly accurate thermometers and their Signals 4-channel thermometer follows suit. Signals was built for the serious BBQ pitmaster who wants to keep track of four different temperatures at once over Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Signals retails for $229 and includes three cooking probes and one air probe.



Anker has the Gadgets to Cure the Back to School Blues

Anker has got your students covered for the dreaded back to school blues with some great music accessories as well as a fantastic power bank. All of these gadgets are small enough to travel with while offering great features and functionality at a reasonable price. Anker sent each of these products my way to test before I recommended them.


A Review of the Cleer Ally Truly Wireless Earbuds

There’s certainly a lot of competition in the truly wireless headphone market, but a lot of the latest have attempted to up the ante in terms of features, more specifically battery life. But the Cleer Ally True Wireless Headphones are doing just that, and more.



Gear Diary’s 2019 Back to School Guide

September is almost here, and you’re probably seeing endless “Back to School” commercials which can only mean one thing — people are headed back to the classroom. We’ve found quite a few products that you might enjoy, whether you are a parent, a student, or even a teacher.


RHA Wireless Flight Adapter Is Great for Travel

The last time I flew to Israel, I had a choice. I could enjoy the quiet provided by my wireless noise-canceling headphones, or I could use United’s crappy wired earphones and watch the onboard entertainment. The new RHA Wireless Flight Adapter makes that choice a thing of the past by letting you cut the cord to your airline entertainment system.



Are the Jabra Elite 85h the New Gold Standard in Bluetooth Headphones?

The Jabra Elite 85h are the most well rounded Bluetooth headphones I’ve ever used; checking the box on almost every category including sound quality, active noise canceling, clear phone calls, great battery life, intuitive controls, and water resistance.  When paired with Jabra’s companion smartphone app, I’m not sure any other Bluetooth headphones can compete.  The Elite 85h retail for $299.99.


RHA TrueConnect True Wireless Earbuds are Truly Impressive

When Raina got a job that required her to commute to the city I bought her a pair of AirPods. She loves them; I’m not a fan. I don’t like their fit, and I think they sound like crap. The RHA TrueConnect True Wireless Earbuds have the same design but, unlike the AirPods, I’m a fan!


6 Quirky Gifts for the Person Who Has Everything

We’re still more than a few months away from Christmas and the other stereotypically gift-giving holidays, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t start shopping early. Plus, there’s nothing stopping you from picking up a few ‘just because’ gifts — except perhaps, the challenge of not knowing what to get for someone. With that in mind, here are a handful of quirky gifts for the person who has everything —…
