The biggest news over the past week after CES 2019 was that Louis Vuitton launched a collection of unique wireless headphones. But despite the ridiculous price tag, you can get the same great in-ear wireless headphones for less with Master & Dynamic MW07’s.
My home is filled with Amazon Echo devices but, as Judie and Carly reported, it was Google Assistant rather than Alexa that was on display at CES 2019. If the amazing JBL LINK VIEW I have been reviewing is any indication, there’s a good reason why. It is a fantastic device and Google Assistant is remarkably powerful.
I love reviewing items that offer a different take on known products. That’s what caught my eye when I saw the JBL Soundgear wearable speaker. Rather than wearing earbuds that isolate you, Soundgear surrounds your head with excellent audio. At $200 they are pricey. At $99.99, the Zulu Alpha Portable Bluetooth Speakers take a similar approach for half the price.
CES has no shortage of unique speakers on the showroom floor this week, but Cavalier Audio’s take on Stereo Sound Systems redefine how you’ll use your speaker in 2019.
Greg introduced me to Master & Dynamic at CES a few years ago. The small company produces high-end headphones, and they have received critical acclaim not only from us but from others who truly value their music. Now, Master & Dynamic has released the MW07 true wireless earphones, and we think they look amazing.
Audeze may not be a household name, but they are, in fact, a global leader in premium audio. Their iSINE headphones have received positive reviews and, as of today, are now available in a new Bluetooth version. Also, for those who already own iSINE headphones, their new CIPHER Bluetooth module will let Audeze fans cut the cord too!
Speakers and headphones with integrated smart assistants have become all the rage. The House of Marley is jumping into the fray but are doing so with a twist. Some of their new speakers and headphones leverage services like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant and do so using sustainable materials. Smart and socially responsible is a nice way to go!
I’ve long been a fan of V-MODA’s headphones. Whether it is their on-ear, over-the-ear, wired or wireless headphones, I’ve reviewed them all and have always been impressed. Their new V-MODA BassFit wireless headphones are a departure from previous offerings, but they’re all V-MODA! At just $130, the BassFit headphones are a great value offering superb sound and a great fit.
If you’ve purchased a new device over the holidays, chances are it doesn’t have a headphone jack. But you’re in luck because Moshi has announced two products that not only sound better than most 3.5mm enabled headphones, but will free you from dongle life.
This year at CES, Scosche has already put the world on notice that they will have a special announcement every day for CES, with something that will help your everyday lives. Today, Scosche is announcing its Full HD Dash Cam Powered by Nexar.
Tile, as you know, is the world’s leading cloud-based finding platform, so it’s no surprise they are announcing some HUGE integrations with some companies you may use every day!
When we reviewed the Jabra Move wireless on-ear headphones in 2014, we were impressed. These inexpensive headphones offer surprisingly good sound and comfort for under $100. Now Jabra is bringing an update to market. More battery life, new colors and more make a good pair of headphones even better. We can’t wait to check them out.
Beyerdynamic has just introduced the Phonum, a wireless Bluetooth and USB Speakerphone that the company promises will give you high-quality sound at an affordable price.
SOUL Electronics has announced the BLADE, their first ever truly wireless headphones that come complete with a built-in heart rate monitor.
With CES 2019 in full swing, there will be companies left and right announcing stylish new gadgets for us all to enjoy. If you’re a fan of headphones, pay attention — Wicked Audio is announcing four new wireless in-ear headphones additions to their line: Dunmore, Portal, Syver, and Gnar.
Blitzwolf is one of those brands that you may come across on Amazon; you’ll find they have plenty of accessories including cables, headphones, and Bluetooth accessories. The company sent us two accessories over the holidays that I personally used for my annual Christmas party; they were an instant hit. The first product is the Blitzwolf BW-AS2 40-watt Wireless Bluetooth Speaker. I’ve had many different Bluetooth speakers over the last few years, but the Blitzwolf BW-AS2 is certainly a unique one. Available for $69.99, the BW-AS2 features dual 40-watt drivers that when lying on a flat surface deliver a sound that…
Mobvoi’s TicPods Free are a great option for Android users who want similarly styled wireless headphones as their Apple Airpod brethren. With 18-hour battery life, in-ear detection, noise cancellation, and touch controls, the TicPods Free are packed with convenient features. With access to voice assistants like Google Assistant, Siri, etc. the TicPods are compatible with almost every smartphone.
I recently reviewed iHome’s small Alexa-enabled bedside clock. Raina used it last night for the first time, and this morning reported that she considers it a “winner.” It is, however, a basic smart clock. If you want or need something with more bells and whistles, you can check out the iHome iAVS16 smart Bedside/Home Office Speaker System.
We recently reviewed a bedside clock from iHome that works with Google Assistant. It’s impressive but only if you are using Google Assistant as your smart assistant. For those of us deep into the Amazon Alexa ecosystem, there is the iHome iAV14. It may look like a traditional nightstand clock but, thanks to its “smarts,” it offers much more.
Even though we’re less than two weeks from Christmas, if you’re looking for some great last-minute items for family, friends, or even just a great white elephant gift, Samsung‘s got your back.
Today, Phiaton has announced their latest addition to their popular line of wireless headphones and earphones: The Curve BT 120 NC. At less than $100, these may be the last-minute checkout you need for the holidays.
