Today, Mobvoi Inc, backed by Google and Volkswagen, launched their new truly wireless headphones, the TicPods Free on Indiegogo. The AI-powered earbuds are compatible with any mobile assistant across multiple mobile devices. If you back them during their pre-sale campaign, you’ll be able to cop these headphones for only $59, much cheaper than the anticipated retail price of $129.
One of my favorite pairs of headphones is the Bowers & Wilkins P7 which I reviewed early last year. Now I’ve got the Bowers & Wilkins PX in hand, and I’ve got to say, they took everything I liked about the P7 and added even more features: a sleeker style, adaptive noise canceling, 22 hours battery life, and intuitive commands.
The Jabra headsets we’ve reviewed over the years have been consistently impressed us. I reviewed the on-ear Jabra Evolve 75 Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation and keep them at my desk at home. Now, Jabra has taken much of what makes the Evolve 75 great and packed it into the smaller Jabra Evolve 75e neckband headset.
Master & Dynamic, the New York City-based headphones manufacturer that Greg and I adore, has partnered with Leica to bring their new Silver Edition series of headphones; if you’re a fan of the camera brand, you’ll recognize the black, silver, and red styling immediately.
New York City-based audio company (and a favorite here at Gear Diary), Master & Dynamic announced today a collaboration with fine artist Scott Campbell to create a special edition of their most popular headphones to expand their fleet.
Wireless headphones have become a staple in my life and I love getting great sound. Over the ear options are often pretty bulky, so luckily Phiaton has released the BT 390 Compact headphones ($79.99). These smaller headphones fold up for easy carry but do not disappoint with the audio quality. Let’s take a look.
Chocolates and flowers? Hell no! It’s 2018, so if you want to really impress them, you’re going to have step things up. Here are 8 of our favorite gift picks to make them swoon this Valentine’s Day.
Fact: Some things are inexpensive and they perform poorly, and then there are some expensive things which are made to last which perform splendidly. When I received the Shinola Canfield On-Ear Wired Headphones, I had no doubt that their construction was top-notch; I couldn’t help but wonder, though, if their sound would justify their $495 price. Shall we find out?
I have a very specific set of requirements for headphones: They need to be budget friendly, sweat proof, fit my ears, and they need to stay put. This seems like a relatively simple list, but finding headphones that adhere to all four is remarkably tough. Earbuds don’t fit my ears right, and over the ear headphones get sweaty easily.
If you’ve never heard of Modular, they are an American-based Audio company that has taken to CES to introduce their Mod-1 Digital, Analog, and Wireless Headphones. Coming complete with an awesome design and even greater quality, the Mod-1 Headphones are a Swiss Army Knife when it comes to audio experience. With its Bluetooth technology, the Mod-1 headphones also come with a…
Some time ago I reviewed the Plantronics BackBeat 500 on-ear headphones. At under $80, they were, and are a great deal. When Plantronics sent me the BackBeat FIT 300 for review they also sent me the new, BackBeat FIT 500 on-ear headphones. They look exactly like the BackBeat 500 headphones I reviewed previously, yet there are a few important differences.
With more than 4,000 companies exhibiting at CES, choosing the best of CES was a challenge. Even so, we want to recognize the products we saw that are truly innovative, take technology in new directions or, in one case, make something great accessible to every consumer.
I’ve previously reviewed each of the various generations of Plantronics’ BackBeat GO wireless earbuds. When they announced the BackBeat FIT 305 Wireless Sweatproof Sport Earbuds, I was curious to see what Plantronics had done to make excellent wireless earbuds even better. Not only am I impressed but Raina was too. She asked if she could keep my review sample.
A good pair of headphones is hard to find, but if you’re tired of searching, then you might want to check out JBL’s recently updated Everest series. Sporting three different models, the JBL Everest collection (710GA, 310GA, and 110GA) are made with different wearers in mind, depending on if you like around ear, on-ear, and in-ear.
Just announced at CES 2018 are four new models of the JBL Endurance, the company’s line of sport earphones for active lifestyles. JBL’s Endurance line includes the Endurance RUN, SPRINT, JUMP, and DIVE, all things I like to do, but all designed with a unique set of features that vary according to the activity. The SPRINT, JUMP, and DIVE MODELS all…
Moshi is an accessory design house we first got to know at CES a few years ago. They make awesome products, and we are excited to see them releasing a brand new product, the Avanti Air wireless headphones. The headphones are designed to blend minimalism with a luxurious aesthetic. We think they achieved their goal. What do you think?
I’m a huge fan of Libratone products. Their speakers can’t be beaten and now offer integration with Amazon Alexa. Their Q Adapt headphones are some of the best on the market. Now, Libratone is unveiling the Libratone TRACK+ In-Ear Wireless Adjustable Noise Cancellation Earphones. Their smallest wireless headphones yet, the TRACK+ allow you rock on in isolation from the world.
If you read our review last year about the YEVO 1 headphones, then you know how phenomenal they are both in looks and in the listening experience, so it’s no surprise that Stockholm-based YEVO Labs joined forces with Humanium Metal by IM to introduce Humanium Metal – a commodity for peace into the YEVO 1 Earphones. Labeled the YEVO x…
