The Libratone ZIPP was one of my all-time favorite speakers. It looked great, sounded amazing, and let you customize the look with exchangeable covers. With portable AirPlay it was as close to the perfect speaker for an iOS-user as you could find. Now Libratone has rebooted the ZIPP and they are offering the smaller, and less expensive, Libratone ZIPP MINI….

We’ve reviewed many Bluetooth speakers on the market, but none quite like the Mars Levitating Bluetooth Speaker, and that is actually a good thing. Created by Crazybaby, the Mars speaker is the world’s first and only levitating speaker that not only looks cool, but it’s pretty damn impressive in terms of audio quality as well. Originally an Indiegogo project that was successfully…
We recently took a look at the latest in-ear headphones from Phiaton. While not a familiar brand to most, the company produces great audio products and deserves a look. Case in point: the Phiaton BT 460 Bluetooth Wireless Headphones. Comfortable and great sounding, they have an MSRP of $249 but can be had at Amazon for under $200.

In my younger years, I was one of those people who walked around with a huge rectangular boombox. In fact, it was a boombox blasting Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes that became the soundtrack for my teen tour of Israel when I was 15. Well, the Boombox is back in a Monster-ful way, thanks to the Monster SuperStar Blaster!
The first time I went to visit Raina, I made fun of the huge speakers attached to her stereo. “Those are freaking huge!?” I said. Fast forward a year, and I’m using the AudioEngine HD6 Powered Speakers. These speakers are fairly large bookshelf speakers. They are also the best speakers I have heard in a long time.
I held out before getting the Apple iPad Pro longer than I expected but finally gave in. I didn’t love the Apple keyboard case and opted for the ZAGG Slim Book for the Apple iPad Pro. The company was kind enough to send a review sample and I am thrilled! I love using this keyboard.
Adonit’s Jot Script 2 is a thing of beauty. It’s a solid stylus that feels great in the hand and writes on your iPad even better. It has Pixelpoint accuracy and comes with a magnetic USB charging dock so you can be sure you’ll always have enough juice. You can get yourself a Jot Script 2 for $74.99!
Typically when you spend $299 on a pair of earphones, you’re expecting quality, but you’re also expecting some flaws. Well, that’s exactly the case with the Bragi Dash. So let’s get right into it. I originally backed the Bragi Dash February 23rd, 2014 after scouring Kickstarter for $199 (early bird pricing) with expectations of getting them in January 2015 (no…
The MiPow PlayBulb Sphere lets you take your smart light with you. The MiPow PlayBulb Color lets your smart light also rock your tunes. The PlayBulb Comet applies the same smart lighting approach to strip lighting that can bring light under your cabinets, behind your television or, for that matter, pretty much anywhere you want. And setup is a breeze!
If you’re looking to add both smart lighting and Bluetooth audio to a room easily you don’t need to look much further than the MiPow PlayBulb Color. For under $70 you can have a smart bulb that screws into a standard light socket and a Bluetooth speaker that’s hidden away in the bulb itself. It’s a great concept. I’m impressed!
I am not a big fan of the Apple earbuds that came with my phone, so I am always searching for replacements. Monster is looking to replacing your earbuds with the $79.95 ClarityHD High-Performance Wireless Earbuds. Not only is Monster looking to improve earbud performance, but to also cut the cord with this Bluetooth option. Let’s see how they fared!
The temperature tomorrow can be as low as -2 in New Jersey. All I can say is BRRRRRRRR! Thanks to the Caseco Classic Boutique Dual with Pom Layered Bluetooth Beanie, I’ll be staying warm AND be able to enjoy my favorite music on the go. The beanie is comfortable and warm and the built-in Bluetooth connected speakers work well.
One of the most unusual products ZAGG has brought to market recently is the ZAGG Speaker Case for iPhone 6. This innovative case adds protection, extra battery life and a Bluetooth speakerphone to your powerful pocket computer. The speaker snaps in place when you need it. When you don’t it easily separates, leaving your phone thin, light but still protected.
The Amazon Echo is probably one of my favorite new gadgets of 2015. No, actually, it is my absolute favorite gadget of 2015. And it gets better and better with new features coming pretty much every week. Today Amazon added the ability to play Spotify through it!
ZAGG’s been doing some interesting things as of late. I have a review of their iPhone 6 Speaker Case coming shortly and that’s just the beginning. Their latest creation is the ZAGG Now Cam. This little camera is designed to let you capture video and images without running your smartphone battery down. And that’s just the beginning! The Now Cam…
While at CES 2016 we had a chance to check out the upcoming TrueWireless Ear Buds from M-Edge. These are wireless ear buds with a difference. They not only cut the cord to your device but they cut the cord between ears! For $149.99 you’ll get two separate ear buds that work in tandem. Here’s our video look!
We review a lot of Bluetooth speakers here at Gear Diary, in all different shapes, sizes, colors, and beyond, but none quite like the Fugoo Style XL. At $279.99, the Fugoo Style XL is certainly not the smallest speaker on the market, but it’s certainly one of the loudest, and stylish ones. If you’ve followed any of Fugoo’s other product…
The original Scosche boomBOTTLE impressed me. A Bluetooth speaker built for use indoors and out, it pumped out excellent sound in every direction. And it had the added benefit of fitting into a bike’s water bottle cage! Now Scosche has released the Scosche boomBOTTLE+. It keeps a similar design and is a worthy update to an already-impressive Bluetooth speakers.
