I’ve long been a fan of AKG’s headphones. I like their aesthetics. I like their build. Most importantly, I like the tuning that AKG brings to their music products. It simply sounds good to my ears. That’s why I was excited to check out the new AKG N60NC Wireless. I’ve reviewed the N60NC but now… they’ve cut the cord!
Some time ago, I brought word that Blue Microphones was deepening their headphone bench with the introduction of their first pair of wireless headphones. The Blue Satellite Wireless headphones build upon what is, in a short time, a stellar reputation. The new Satellite Wireless Headphones with ANC and an onboard Amp are, in a word, “Impressive.”
There’s something to be said about good carry-on luggage. You don’t want it to be overly bulky, however, you want to fit all of the essentials you possibly can and avoid paying to check a bag at every opportunity. EBags is one of the company’s that you can trust; they not only make carry-on luggage that meet airline requirements but are a great…
What do you get when you apply precise engineering, attention to detail, and high-quality fabrics to a stroller? You’d get the Cybex Priam Travel System. This incredibly versatile travel system allows you to use everything from a bassinet to a standard stroller seat, to an infant car seat, all with the same Priam frame. The Priam starts at $649.95.
The tagline for the Solo Rival Backpack should be “There’s a place for everything,” because that’s exactly how I felt when I took it on a trip recently. Though plain on the outside, the inside of this bag offers a slew of organizational features waiting to be utilized by the tech-enthusiast traveler. At $79.99, the Solo Rival offers serious value.
When you’re traveling and your kids want to watch a movie or TV show, you’d do well to have a good set of children’s headphones with you. BuddyPhones fit the bill because they are volume limiting, durable, and comfortable. They also come with fun stickers so your kids can personalize them to their liking. BuddyPhones retail for $24.99.
At $79.99 Grand Trunk’s medium Compression Pack Cube might appear a bit too pricey. There are, after all, much less expensive travel cubes on the market. After using the review sample I received on a few trips, though, I’m a huge fan. It is a great way to pack your items before the trip and keep clean and soiled garments…
My husband snores. not all the time but sometimes, and if I don’t fall asleep before he does, his snoring can keep me awake. Kev’s had a sleep test (there’s no sleep apnea), and he’s tried various anti-snore devices to no avail. I’ve tried earplugs, but they block everything (like alarms); it’s better to use QuietOn Active Noise Cancelling Earplugs.
Good luggage is hard to find, but if you’ve ever heard of the company Away Luggage, then you’ve noticed their 4.7 rating for their products on their own site, as well as the good reviews found in a simple Google Search.
Traveling out of the country can be a bit tricky if you know that you’ll need data while gone, especially when you need to be able to get work done. If you’re traveling to an area where you can’t expect solid hotel internet service or if wirelessly tethering your laptop to your phone isn’t an option, RoamingMan WiFi Hotspot can help.
The X-Doria Stash Case for iPhone 7 is under $20, but it feels and functions like a far more expensive case. It’s highly protective and holds a couple of cards without becoming a bulky brick of a case. That makes it a great option for anyone who is looking to travel light but still needs a license and credit card.
We cover a lot of portable batteries here, but it’s not often that we review one that is targeted at (and powerful enough to charge) laptops — the 12″ MacBook in particular — like the myCharge RazorPlatinum.
One of the things that I used do when packing to go overseas was to make sure that I had my collection of plug adapters and a bulky international power strip ready to go; these days I just make sure that I have the Oneadaptr Twist+ World Adapter DUO.
We recently reviewed a new lens system from Olloclip. That was not the only new product Olloclip rolled out. In this review we will take a look at two more of them — the Olloclip Active Lens Set for iPhone 7 and 7 PLUS and Olloclip Pivot. Both take iPhone-ography to a new level of awesome.
Rounding out our series of Olloclip reviews at this time is the Olloclip Pivot. This $49.99 accessory is ideal for anyone looking to use do serious iPhone-ography. It’s a simple way to not only add stability to your shot but, thanks to a single cold shoe on top, to also add an accessory such as a light or a microphone.
The Scosche BoomBouy Rockstar Pocket-Sized Speaker is a small speaker that clips to a backpack and goes wherever you go. In fact, “goes wherever you go” even includes a pool, river or lake if that is where your travels take you. The small speaker is part of Scosche’s Rockstar sub-brand, but a quick look at it will make that fact clear.
We’ve seen and reviewed a goodly number of external batteries; many are increasingly fancy and complex. The Scosche Rockstar GoBat 10K Portable Battery falls on the simpler side of things… So long as you ignore that very obvious branding. And if you can get past the branding, or you like it, then you may find this a good option.
I travel out of the country a minimum of three times per year, and in the past, I have had to find other options than AT&T (my carrier) because using their international plan just didn’t make financial sense. The new AT&T International Day Pass changes all of that.
OK guys, I’m going to be talking about a bag company named NutSac, so let’s get all the jokes out of your system. Good? Good. The NutSac Satchel is a high-quality bag made with Top Grain leather and waxed canvas and can hold a tablet up to 9.7” as well as accessories. You can grab your own NutSac for $129.
Scandinavian furniture has clean lines and, too often, appear to sacrifice comfort in favor of minimalism and style. Sit in such furniture and… you will be pleasantly surprised. The Libratone Q Adapt On-Ear headphones reflect this same Scandinavian design language. The have clean lines and, like the furniture, appear to sacrifice comfort in favor of minimalism.
If you live in a major city, you know that tourists are easy to spot. There’s something about their clothes, their behavior, the way they try to take in the sights and read the map on their phones all at once, that makes them stand out in a crowd. Unfortunately, there are people out there who try to take advantage…
