For a company to claim that their headphones have advanced audio quality is one thing, but when they throw our the term “HDR sound,” you might be more interested in checking them out. I was sent a pair of Origem HS-3 Bluetooth headphones, and the question I have is: Should you believe the hype?

Seems like Apple is being a bit more open to other companies making better quality yet more affordable products than they can, as evidenced by Scosche releasing their new MFi-certified USB-C accessories.
We are huge fans of Master & Dynamic here, and how could we not be? Their headphones are extremely well made, and they produce excellent sound. If you’ve been looking for a great pair of wired cans, now is the time to check out their MH40 Over-Ear Headphones, as they are on sale for $199 from $249 for Memorial Day.
A few weeks ago, Tejas wrote about the Stealth Labs Speaker Backpack that’s currently on Indiegogo. At the time, I thought a backpack with a built-in speaker could be an interesting idea, but only if it were executed properly. After being sent a pre-release model to try out, I’ve decided that this backpack, for what it is, is nearly perfect.
One of the best sets of wireless headphones to come out of CES this year was the Master & Dynamic MW07 True Wireless Earphones, which Greg recently reviewed. If you’re ready to put away winter’s darker colors, enjoy fabulous sounding audio, and to celebrate the cherry blossom festivals occurring worldwide, the new MW07 cherry blossom special edition should do the trick.
If you have an Android phone, you’ll generally know when fast charging is occurring because an on-screen message lets you know. On the iPhone, the only way to tell that fast wireless charging is occurring is to observe how quickly your phone charges during a time period (no, really). Apple fast wireless charging happens at 7.5W and Samsung’s happens at 10W; the Just Mobile AluBase Wireless can handle both.
Kickstarter is sort of like the internet’s science fair. You wade through a lot of random stuff to find some cool ideas, but every once in a blue moon you see a project and think “Was no one around to intervene here?” That’s my take on the LapDogg, and not just because it has a weird extra G.
I have two gear pouches, a small one for every day and a large one for travel. Each carries an external battery and a wall adapter for charging. Thanks to the [FUSE]chicken Universal All-In-One Travel Charger, I can swap the two gadgets for a single one, as this is a wall adapter and a Qi charging battery.
We’ve reviewed products from 1More before, and we’ve been impressed by the quality of their audio products, mostly because of the Dual-Dynamic drivers that many of their headphones have. When I received the 1More Stylish and the 1More DualDriver BT ANC headphones, I wondered about the differences between the two and which would be my new favorite neckband-style headphones.
One thing we can always count on is creative charging accessories from Oneadaptr that make keeping our devices powered-up a cinch. Their latest travel chargers, the Oneadaptr OneWorld PD and OneWorld Duo are made work in over 150 countries. With multiple fully grounded charging solutions built-in, they are the perfect gift for any frequent traveler.
Spring and summer are on the way. That means many activities will soon be moving outside. If you are in the market for a superb indoor/outdoor Bluetooth speaker you need look no further than the Ultimate Ears BOOM 3; now you can make it your own with the myBOOM Studio.
Wirelessly charging your devices may seem pointless to some skeptics, especially if you have a habit of checking your phone while charging, but if you’re looking for a great way to get full battery life without wires laying around everywhere, Choetech’s PowerDual 5-Coil Dual Fast Wireless Charger may be the way to go.
I’m excited about all of the products that Scosche has announced for CES 2019, and that continues with the Scosche BTFREQ. It’s a smart USB Type-A and Type-C car charger and Bluetooth transmitter that you should consider — even if your car already has Bluetooth.
The Scosche MagicGrip Charge Qi-Mount promises to put a different spin on charging your device on the go.
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.
Scosche is much more than their car accessories. If you’ve been following their CES announcements this week, you know that Scosche has a lot in store for 2019, but you might be really intrigued by how they plan on keeping your home device charging organized with the Scosche BaseLynx Modular Charging System.
The Scosche MagicMount Charge3 Vent is promising to be an innovative new take on wirelessly charging your devices on-the-go while attached to a vehicle’s vent — say goodbye to blocked airflow!
It seems like every year, Netgear gets better and better; today they have announced that their award-winning Orbi Whole Home Wi-Fi System, which utilizes patented Fastlane3 technology, will soon be available using 6th generation Wi-Fi, 802.11ax, or Wi-Fi 6.
SOUL Electronics has announced the BLADE, their first ever truly wireless headphones that come complete with a built-in heart rate monitor.
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…
Mobvoi’s TicPods Free are a great option for Android users who want similarly styled wireless headphones as their Apple Airpod brethren.
