Monster Airlink Elements: Jewelry in Your Ear, Jewelry You Can Hear

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.


The Totallee Thin iPhone X Case Is TRULY Thin

I like cases that are thin but offer some degree of drop protection. Still, when Totallee invited us to check out their thin iPhone X case, I was game. The case is a textbook case in thin. While it doesn’t protect your iPhone in a drop, it does provide scratch protection while letting your iPhone’s industrial design shine through.


Nomad’s iPhone Cases are Ready for their New Wireless Hub

Nomad just announced their new USB Wireless Hub. It looks amazing, and you can read Judie’s review here. Nomad also makes a range of amazing iPhone cases that are ready to work with the new $79.95 hub. They offer a variety of designs and great protection.  All of them are impressive and there’s something for everyone! They are also affordable.


KnowRoaming Is Ideal for Connected Globetrotters

When we first “met” KnowRoaming, a service committed to making global connectivity simple and inexpensive; they offered a sticker that one would place on a standard SIM card to connect when traveling. It always made me a bit uneasy. Since then, the company has greatly expanded their offerings and, when we travel this summer, we’ll be relying on them!


Nomad Wireless Hub Review: Organized Power with Wireless Charging

A few months ago I reviewed the Nomad USB Hub (which I still use every day), and now Nomad has upped their game by releasing the Nomad Wireless Hub. It’s similar in appearance to the USB Hub, yet the Nomad Wireless Hub is even more powerful and, for those of us with wirelessly charging devices, more convenient.

Plantronics BackBeat FIT 500 Headphones Quick Look

Some time ago I reviewed the Plantronics BackBeat 500 on-ear headphones. At under $80, they were, and are a great deal. When Plantronics sent me the BackBeat FIT 300 for review they also sent me the new, BackBeat FIT 500 on-ear headphones. They look exactly like the BackBeat 500 headphones I reviewed previously, yet there are a few important differences.


Get Moving with the BackBeat FIT 305 Wireless Sweat-Proof Sport Earbuds

I’ve previously reviewed each of the various generations of Plantronics’ BackBeat GO wireless earbuds. When they announced the BackBeat FIT 305 Wireless Sweatproof Sport Earbuds, I was curious to see what Plantronics had done to make excellent wireless earbuds even better. Not only am I impressed but Raina was too. She asked if she could keep my review sample.




Power up with Incipio’s USB-C Universal and USB-C Integrated Power Banks

Incipio is extending its line of external batteries with the new offGRID Turbo and offGRID Turbo+ USB-C universal and USB-C integrated portable power banks. I’ve used previous iterations of the offGRID line They’re durable, easy to use and a great addition to any gear bag. I have no doubt the same will be true with these new offerings.

Meet RapidX and Their Wide Range of “Products for Modern Life”

One of the coolest things about CES is getting to know new companies such as RapidX. They have two key products they are showing off this year, one for the home and the other for use in the car, and we thought it would be fun to take a quick look at both, as well as one additional RapidX product.


Yevo Releases the World’s First Headphones Made from Illegal Firearms

If you read our review last year about the YEVO 1 headphones, then you know how phenomenal they are both in looks and in the listening experience, so it’s no surprise that Stockholm-based YEVO Labs joined forces with Humanium Metal by IM to introduce Humanium Metal – a commodity for peace into the YEVO 1 Earphones. Labeled the YEVO x…


Pitaka MagHive: Much More Than Simple Organization

I’ve found that the best way to make sure I don’t forget anything before I leave home is to have a central spot where I keep all the things I might need. Phone, keys, battery pack — all go in a bowl by the door. It’s low-tech, but it works. The Pitaka MagHive takes my strategy into the 21st century.

The Presidio Mount was created in partnership with Scosche and looks great!
