Ultimate Ears Rolls Out the UE ROLL 2

“Designed to take your music wherever, whenever, UE ROLL 2 is the perfect musical companion for your next adventure.” That’s how Ultimate Ears describes the new UE Roll 2 Bluetooth Speaker. I describe it as a worthy update to one of my favorite portable Bluetooth speakers. It offers all-around improvements AND is under $100! The UE Roll is a magnificent…


Libratone ZIPP, Is It Worth the Extra $50 Over the ZIPP MINI?

We recently took a look at the new Libratone ZIPP MINI. I was impressed with the design, the features and, especially, the sound. The ZIPP MINI is, as the name suggests, the smaller version of the Libratone ZIPP. That begs the question, what do you get for the extra $50 you’ll pay for the regular ZIPP?



The Mars Speaker Levitates, But Is The Sound Quality Out of This World?

We’ve reviewed many Bluetooth speakers on the market, but none quite like the Mars Levitating Bluetooth Speaker, and that is actually a good thing. Created by Crazybaby, the Mars speaker is the world’s first and only levitating speaker that not only looks cool, but it’s pretty damn impressive in terms of audio quality as well. Originally an Indiegogo project that was successfully…




Jam Audio’s Alloy Speaker is Super Portable, Just Leave The Cable at Home

The Jam Alloy Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is a marvelous speaker. It might be little, but it packs a big punch, all the while being affordable. Probably one of the more cooler speakers I’ve seen in a while, the Jam Alloy is one of the more simpler models on the market, leaving just three buttons on the top portion of the…



The Fluance Fi70 Three-Way Wireless High Fidelity Music System: Incomparable Audio

While smaller speakers might work well in smaller spaces, sometimes you need a bigger speaker system that can fill a larger room with music; that’s where the new Fluance Fi70 speaker will shine. Available in bamboo, black ash, or walnut finishes, the Fi70 has dual 8” woofers, 5” woven glass fiber midrange drivers and 1” neodymium tweeters.


The Fugoo Style XL Speaker: Where Everything is Bigger

We review a lot of Bluetooth speakers here at Gear Diary, in all different shapes, sizes, colors, and beyond, but none quite like the Fugoo  Style XL. At $279.99, the Fugoo Style XL is certainly not the smallest speaker on the market, but it’s certainly one of the loudest, and stylish ones. If you’ve followed any of Fugoo’s other product…



Scosche boomBottle H2O Takes Your Music to the Outdoors!

I spend a lot of time outdoors, hunting, fishing, grilling, and taking the kids to the pool. Of course, most outdoor activities are better with music, so there is always a Bluetooth speaker around. The Scosche boomBottle H2O ($109.99) has now given me great audio without the worry. The speaker is water proof, rugged, and perfect for the outdoors!


Harman Kardon OMNI+ Brings Wireless, Multi-Room True HD Audio Home

It has been coming for a while but, with the introduction of the Harman Kardon OMNI+, brings Wireless, Multi-Room True HD, I think Harman Kardon is truly ready to take over and dominate the multi-room audio market. As one would expect, the new OMNI+ speakers bring HK’s audio prowess to a variety of rooms. That, however, is just the beginning.



808 Audio Announces New Lineup at CES

Portable Bluetooth audio devices have become a product category that interests me. 808 Audio just announced their 2016 audio lineup that proves to have something for everyone at an affordable price. Casual listeners, outdoors enthusiasts and party hosts should all find something that works for them. 


Philips Fidelio Soundbar with Dolby Atmos Announced at CES

There are many new products that get amazing sound from a compact package when it comes to television audio. Gibson Innovations has announced the Philips Fidelio Soundbar that includes Dolby Atmos technology. I have three televisions with stock speakers and need something to improved the sound. This soundbar could be exactly what I was looking for. 


The Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless Speaker: A Beautiful Beast

I’ve been intrigued by the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin speakers since Doug reviewed the Zeppelin back in 2008, followed by Dan’s Zeppelin Air review in 2011. Now it’s 2015, and B&W has released their most refined Zeppelin yet, the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Wireless Speaker, and now it is my turn to see what all of the fuss is about.


Always Have a Party in Your Pocket with This Speaker!

Currently an IndieGogo that is close to halfway completing it’s goal of $15,000, I was sent one Pocket Party by 7×24 to review, and I decided to throw a PIZZA PARTY with it! After inviting a few friends over, I wanted to actually test out this tiny speaker and all of the huge sound that the company claims that the…




The MC.Brick Bluetooth Speaker Has NFC Technology and Great Sound

The MC Brick is a small Bluetooth speaker that certainly isn’t small on sound. Originally an Indiegogo project, once successfully funded, Mova Systems released their MC.Mini and their MC.Brick products. They sent over the larger version for me to review and I personally like it. Designed to submerse you with sounds with it’s deep pass, all without compromising the sound quality, the…
