Easy to set up, it will be music to your ears.

The Boombot REX by Boombotix is an ultra-portable ruggedized Bluetooth speaker that can be your partner in crime, no matter what the adventure. This tiny speaker pumps out the jams with dual drivers and a bass woofer, all while being just a tad bigger than a deck of playing cards. The Boombot REX retails for $99.99.
Bem’s Bluetooth Wireless Speaker Band isn’t quite the Dick Tracy Watch, but it’s close! The Speaker Band is a small Bluetooth speaker in the form factor of a watch that you wear on your wrist. Inside the speaker is a microphone, so you can take voice calls without ever picking up your phone. The Bem Speaker Band retails for $49.99.

The Ultimate Ears UE Boom is one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers we have had the opportunity to review. (Read my review.) Perhaps the most compelling aspect of it – besides the great sound, battery life and superb build quality – is the fact that ultimate ears has continually found ways to update the speaker since it was first…
Think of a mash-up between Beats headphones, Instagram, and GoPro, and you’ll have some sense of what the Soundsight headphones are about. Soundsight is a newly introduced product that will combine high-quality Bluetooth headphones with a 1080p camera to allow users to record HD video from their point of view. Soundsight is available for preorder at $349 for 30 days.
A short while ago, I wrote about the Kinivo Bluetooth Car Kit; well, they’ve sent me one to review, and I like it so much that I will be ordering at least two more. Why? Because now my non-Bluetooth equipped SUV is now able to stream music and take hands-free calls. This solution is not perfect, but it’s pretty awesome.
In addition to the new JBL headphones we posted on earlier today, the company also introduces two new headphones targeted at those who are a bit more athletic. The JBL Synchros Reflect and Synchros Reflect BT In-Ear Sport Headphones comes in striking colors, are $59.95 and $99.95 respectively, and they promise great sound while you work out.
The Martian Notifier is my favorite kind of watch. Not only does it serve it’s true purpose well, telling the time, it also can notify you when you have new alerts on your phone. It’s a device that does what it’s meant to and not much more…and that’s what makes it great. You can purchase the Notifier for $129.
For years I used a GPS in my car, but that’s been replaced by my smartphone. I miss having the GPS mounted to my dashboard, so I was very excited to check out the iBolt line of car mounts and their complementary “Dock ‘n Drive” apps. Does this turn the phone into the ultimate safe car accessory?
The new Korus M20 Mobile wireless speaker may look like yet another entry into the overly-crowded Bluetooth speaker market, but looks only tell part of the story. Sure, the carabiner clip is a nice touch, but that’s only the beginning. You see, this isn’t just a speaker; it is a small part of a much larger system.
We mentioned last month that Bayan Audio, a UK audio company, was entering the US market. Among their initial US offerings were the $199 Soundbook and the powerful $299 Soundbook X3. Last night they revealed their newsiest product- the Bayan Audio Soundbook GO. The $134.99 Bluetooth speaker has great style and promises equally impressive audio. Here’s a closer look.
Monster Products (aka Monster Headphones) make an assortment of fashionable headphones that actually sound great. The company now offers a number of speakers. The Monster Superstar High Definition Bluetooth Speaker is one such offering. It is a small, colorful speaker that actually sounds surprisingly good. Currently available for under $130, it lets you take Monster Music on the go.
Over the past few years I have come to appreciate the fact that great industrial design and quality audio are not mutually exclusive. One of the companies that consistently proves it possible to have speakers (or headphones) that look gorgeous and sound great is Harman Kardon. The Harman Kardon Esquire Bluetooth Speaker is the perfect example.
I’m a huge fan of JBL products . The speakers and headphones from them that we have reviewed have consistently impressed. I’m working on a review of the JBL Flip 2, and I’m blown away by the small speaker. If, however, you want something even smaller than the Flip 2, you’ll want to check out the JBL Clip.
The iFrogz Tadpole Bluetooth mini speaker does not put out big, bold, quality sound. It doesn’t get great battery life, it’s not waterproof, and it doesn’t double as a speakerphone. It doesn’t have Bluetooth 4.0 or NFC. So the tadpole isn’t worth your time or money, right? Actually no, in the right situation it’s a rather compelling device. Here’s why.
The Scosche boomBOTTLE was a great speaker. The new boomBOTTLE H2O looks impressive, too. And the boomBOTTLE mini looks like it shares the same genes but in a far smaller package. At under $50, it just might be the best option if you are looking for a new Bluetooth speaker that can go everywhere this summer.
Are you ready for spring? The new Scosche BoomBOTTLE H2O is here, and it can deal with just about anything your summer fun can throw at it. At under $100 the bright, colorful speaker is bound to be your trusted partner this summer and beyond. It will let your tunes go where you do.
If you want your sports headphones to be wireless, stay in place, be easy to control, put up with inclement weather, and sound good, then the BlueAnt Pump HD Sportbuds Bluetooth Headphones may well be the headphones for you. At $129 they won’t break the bank and, thanks to their design, they stay in place while you exercise.
