I’m a huge advocate of AfterShokz, especially if you’re the type to listen to music while running, walking, hiking, etc. Having your ears open while still being able to enjoy music is a home run. AfterShokz thinks hearing your surroundings is important when you’re working too, and they’re applying their bone conduction headphones concept to a work-centric headset with the AfterShokz OpenComm. Does bone conduction spiff up well for the office? Read on to find out!
Nomad’s phone cases are some of the best, most refined, and most protective on the market. But when Nomad first introduced their iPhone 12 cases, they weren’t specifically designed to work with Apple’s new MagSafe charging system. The company has now released a line of Rugged Cases specifically designed to work with MagSafe for iPhone 12.
Pulling out a stick stylus is rather plebeian, right? I mean, pretty much anyone can get one of those. If you want to appear like you’ve got everything under control and are living large — even if only to those in your latest Zoom call — obviously, you need to put the $250 Adonit Prime Stylus on your credit card.
True wireless earbuds have gotten dramatically better since they made their first appearance a few years ago. New models offer improved connectivity, increased battery life, and better sound. Many even offer active noise cancellation and battery cases that are Qi-wireless charging enabled. The new Jays t-Seven True Wireless earbuds offer all of these advances at an accessible price.
Remember when a portable battery pack that held 20,000mAh was a beast to lug around? Thankfully, those days are over. The 20,000mAh Aukey Basix Blade Series Power Banks are much smaller and lighter than many similar capacity Li-Ion battery packs. Wait until you see what I mean …
A storm some weeks ago left us in the cold, literally. We had no idea how long the power would be out, but my wife and I still needed to work. Thankfully, we’d been sent the Goal Zero Sherpa 100PD Power Bank and Yeti 200X Portable Power Station for us to check out; these power sources kept our phones, tablets, and computers going until our electricity returned.
I’ve long been a fan of V-MODA headphones, so I’m excited to report that they have just announced their first Bluetooth active noise-canceling headphones, the V-MODA M-200 ANC. Working in tandem with the new V-MODA app, listeners will be able to personalize their M-200 ANC noise cancellation level and their sound with EQ presets.
If you embraced MagSafe when Apple announced their iPhone 12 Pro in 2020, chances are you’ve been waiting for third-party accessory makers to start selling their iterations of MagSafe-compatible products. You can now upgrade your MagSafe-life with the Satechi Aluminum 2-in-1 Magnetic Wireless Charging Stand.
Anker is one of those brands that, even if you don’t think they make it, I can almost guarantee that they do. So when I heard that they’d be at CES this year with a host of never before seen products, my interest was already piqued. So exactly what does the brand have in store for 2021? Read on!
Designed for the modern household that has way more than two devices, the Satechi Dock5 is a multi-device charging station that can make our digital lives a bit more convenient.
To celebrate its 75th anniversary, JBL has expanded its headphone lineup with the new JBL Tour Series. These headphones, which will offer both an over-the-ear and a true-wireless option, are perfect for business professionals who want a sleek design with smart features and advanced technology.
Backed by the Kickstarter community in 2014, in 2015, Earin was the first company to introduce true wireless in-ear headphones with their M-1 earbuds, followed by the M-2 in 2017. For CES 2021, they’ve just announced their third generation of sleek, tiny, and innovative in-ear wireless headphones, the Earin A-3.
When Qi Wireless charging finally appeared on phones, there were (at least initially) a limited number of available chargers. That’s changed. There are more offerings than ever, and many of them deliver a full charge in far less time than ever. Then there is the SanDisk Ixpand Wireless Charger Sync. It’s a wireless charger and a solid-state backup device.
If you live in Texas, as I do, you now have access to a new form of device insurance called Traverse. Underwritten by Travelers Indemnity, Traverse offers a way to insure your most important devices for as little as $1 a month.
One thing that’s truly been missed out of 2020 is the ability to party with family and friends. With the holidays in full swing and the New Year looming, you don’t want to end the year without having a bit of fun. And why not do so safely at home with the LG XBOOM Go PL7 portable Bluetooth speaker?
You’ll likely get at least one gift this holiday season that needs to be charged. Unfortunately, companies like Apple no longer include wall adapters with their phones. Thankfully, Aukey offers a range of smart, technologically advanced charging solutions. You can see all their offerings here. First, though, take a look at the four offerings they sent us to check out.
We recently reviewed Pitaka’s MagEZ case for the iPhone 12. It’s my daily driver thanks to its lightweight, excellent protection, and the embedded metal that makes it perfect for use with Pitaka’s MagEZ chargers, like the MagEZ Juice or the MagEZ Mount Qi. But while it may be thin, the Pitaka Air Case is even thinner! Weighing just .35oz, it is featherlight but protective.
Between the pandemic and the election, it’s been an insane year. Now that we have several vaccines on the way and the election results have been declared, we can all look forward to seeing what Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are coming. We’ve put together a few of our favorite deals from some brands you know — and a few you should consider — that you can shop, all from the safety of your home!
The new iPhone 12s are the best iPhones Apple has ever released. But they are pricey, with some models almost requiring you to take out a second mortgage. Protecting a device as expensive as the iPhone is more important than ever. Survivor offers four different levels of protection in a variety of colors and price points. Here’s a look.
I recently reviewed the Zepp E Circle, one of the most gorgeous and functional health-centric watches available. Zepp has already added another watch to their line — the Zepp Z. Made from a single block of polished titanium alloy with more of a traditional men’s watch design, the Zepp Z has a classic style that is loaded with smart features and intelligence-assisted fitness tracking.
Jabra has done a fantastic job with its true wireless earphones. The original Jabra Elite Sport was good, and they’ve only gotten better with each iteration. Now they’ve released the Jabra Elite 85t. It packs even more tech than the excellent Jabra Elite 75t and offers native active noise cancellation. But is the new offering better than the Jabra 75t?
