Like most households, as I look around, there are devices everywhere that need charging. In my house, that means one iPad, an iPad Mini, an iPhone SE, a Google Pixel XL, a Yoga Book tablet, a Nexus 6P and three different portable battery packs.
Samsung Galaxy Gear
If you want to get into the headphones market, you either need the push that a recognizable name can provide or you need to create something unique; this is especially true once you get into the $250+ range. With the introduction of the EVEN H2 wireless headphones, EVEN, a brand you might not have heard of yet, does just that.
You might remember my Nomad Leather Folio for the iPhone 7 Plus review; well, if you loved the idea of a Horween Leather wallet case for your phone, but you happen to have the beautiful new Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a Nomad Leather Folio Wallet just for you!
If you have a spare $1500, and you want to experience exceptional headphones that were “inspired and designed by Quincy Jones”, then you could get the AKG N90Q. But if $1500 isn’t quite realistic for your situation, and you’re still interested in trying Jones’ signature sound, then you should take a look at the $200 JBL E55BT Quincy Edition Headphones.
Is the fantastic weather we are having (in Texas, anyway) getting you into the mood for summertime activities, sports, and outdoor parties? If so, then the Monster Superstar Ravebox Portable Speaker is ready to play. The Ravebox is waterproof, has 12-hours of battery life, and it’s powerful enough to handle all of your musical needs indoors or outside.
I’ll start this post by stating a simple, known fact: I am not a runner. I’m more of a jogger or a fast walker, but once I’ve started I’ll at least keep going — even if my speed isn’t going to win any medals. The Vi AI Personal Trainer aims to help me become a better and more consistent runner.
One of the things I like about my 2015 Macbook Pro is that unlike newer MacBooks, it has the magnetic charger that used to differentiate Apple laptops from all others. If my cable gets bumped or pulled, it breaks free from my laptop — rather than crashing everything to the floor. SynCharge promises to give Type-C MacBooks back that feature.
Following Samsung’s announcement of the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus recently, Griffin has partnered up with Samsung to announce their series of Survivor cases for the latest flagship phones from the company.
Moshi, a favorite here at Gear Diary announced their collection of accessories for the newly announced Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will be available late next month both on Moshi’s website, and select retailers.
With the announcement of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus this week, a lot of you may be looking for some accessories for the phone in advance of the smartphone arriving at your doorstep. Luckily there are a few cases who are already ahead of the curve, making their accessories available for purchase. Here are a few of them: …
With wireless being the way that so many headphones have been going, and with built-in 3.5mm jacks becoming rarer, it might seem, I don’t know, maybe a bit retro to review a pair of wired-only headphones. Even so, the Focal Listen Closed Back Over-Ear Headphones are worth a look.
I recently reviewed the Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 headphones; now I’ve got their slightly more upscale brother, the Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 SE, in hand. Everything I enjoyed about the BackBeat PRO 2 is present (do check out their review if you haven’t already), but with the PRO 2 SE headphones, there is even more to love.
I’ve tried plenty of phone holders in my vehicles, but the one thing that always stops me from wanting to keep using them is that they can be bulky, ugly, or they require special attachments to use. The Just Mobile Xtand Vent is a sleek, minimalistic vent holder for your phone. It works well, and it looks good.
The tech world just got a bit smaller today as Samsung Electronics announced that their impressive line of Gear devices- including the Gear S3, Gear S2, and Gear Fit- are now compatible with iOS. Yes, those of us on iPhone’s no longer need to be limited to wearing an Apple Watch. Personally, I’m going for the Gear 3 Frontier!
BodyGuardz is offering a special 50% Thanksgiving discount that will run from Nov 24 – Nov 29th. If you’ve been putting off getting a screen protector or a good case for your phone, don’t dally — head over to BodyGuardz and take advantage of this great deal while it’s available!
Not that Bluetooth earphones and headphones weren’t already growing more and more popular, but Apple’s removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack has all but ensured that this is the direction mobile audio has headed. Do you have a favorite set of Bluetooth earphones or headphones yet? I’m still trying to decide. Lately, I’ve been using ROAM ROPES.
While at IFA, I managed to drop my phone not once, but three times — face-down. This chipped the glass protector I was using to the point that I was worried I might cut myself on it, so I removed it. I’m trying something new now, the CrystalTech Nano 2.0 Liquid Screen Protector.
I’ve just returned from IFA, and one of the most invaluable tools that I brought with me was the Jackery Titan 20,100mAh portable battery. Used with the Jackery Jewel Lightning Cable that I recently reviewed, I was never without power and I could go days without recharging the battery pack.
If the old-fashioned “ear-trumpet” is what you think of when you think of a hearing aid, you’re only a couple of centuries behind on the tech. Today’s hearing aids are tiny, little things that help their wearers hear well without being obvious or conspicuous.
I finally broke down and bought a MacBook after months of hard-sell from Helena. Being able to carry a full Mac OS X computer that weighs so much less than my 13″ MacBook Pro has been liberating; figuring out how to charge my travel laptop and other devices at the same time has been a bit more of a challenge.
Most of the “wireless” headphones we’ve reviewed still have a wire that connects to each of the earphones on either side of the wearer’s head; the PKparis K’asq Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Headset removes that wire and puts the entire package in each of the wearer’s ears. How well could that possibly work?
