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.

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.
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.
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…
If you’ve already invested a lot of money in an indoor portable speaker, you’ve probably caught yourself babying it. It doesn’t go outside, and you would never allow it to fall — on purpose, anyway. But wouldn’t you like to have one that you could take everywhere without worry?
I recently reviewed the ZVOX SoundBase 450, and it is currently serving as our home theater sound system. It is impressive, and even when it was full price, it was affordable. ZVOX has just announced their Black Friday deals that start on the 15th, and let me tell you — this is a great time to buy.
The MC Brick is a small Bluetooth speaker that certainly isn’t small on sound.

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…
No high-definition television purchase is complete without some kind of speaker system; it’s like there’s a conspiracy among HDTV makers that no unit — no matter how large it is or what it costs — can leave the factory with a sufficient speaker system for anything but the smallest room. The ZVOX 28″ SoundBase 450 can fix that for you.

Okay, I have a bit of an addiction when it comes to Bluetooth stereos, and I’m running out of rooms that I can put them in, but I can honestly say that the Sound Blaster Roar 2 is special and becoming my favorite.
The first JBL Flip Bluetooth speaker was a small wonder. Its audio quality put the Jawbone JamBox to shame. The second generation JBL Flip improved the sound and ditched the unique charger in favor of a universal microUSB. The JBL Flip 3 goes further by improving the sound, adding deep base and going splash-proof. It’s impressive and under $100!
My first computer speakers came from Logitech and are still going strong. My office speakers come from Logitech and fill my larger study.

A front-facing subwoofer, 2.25” full range drivers and a wired control pod for convenient power, volume and bass control combine to create huge sound for small dollars.

While much of their IFA press conference centered on growth of the brands covered by the Harman parent company (JBL, Harman-Kardon, AKG, Infinity, etc.), there was one announced product that I want to focus on, because I think it may ultimately be the most intriguing — the Everest headphone collection with TruNote Sound Calibration.
