2019 has been an exciting year for Master & Dynamic — what with their new MW07s, teaming with Kevin Durant for their Noise Cancelling headphones, and even issuing their MW65’s. But it’s their fifth anniversary, and this year and the New York City-based brand has decided to take it back to basics with a slight upgrade that users will love. Master & Dynamic’s way of celebrating a half-decade of premium…
2019 is quickly zipping by, and you know what that means — the holiday season is now upon us! If you’re now faced with trying to figure out what to get for the people on your gift-giving list, take a look at these items we’ve rounded up; we have something for everyone and for every budget!
I love the fact that thanks to Gear Diary, I’m able to check out products from companies with whom I’m not familiar. AUSOUNDS is one such company; they sent a pair of their $199.95 AU-Flex ANC WIRELESS Neckband Earphones for me to try. I’m so impressed that I’m seriously considering purchasing their true wireless earphones.
I spent the summer swimming laps in our pool as often as the weather permitted. The water is nice. The swimming is boring. Most days, I would take one of my UE Boom speakers outside and fire up the tunes. It made the swim less boring but wasn’t optimal. I wish I had the Aftershokz Xtrainerz wireless MP3 headphones.
Some time ago, I reviewed the iFrogz Airtime Truly Wireless Earbuds plus Charging Case. They surprised me. The small, inexpensive earbuds were not only comfortable and offered a secure fit, but they sounded pretty darn good. (Read my review.) The $69.99 iFrogz AIRTIME PRO True Wireless Earbuds offer a more AirPod-esque design, but are they worth the extra money?
Until very recently, wireless headphones were seen as premium items but with fewer and fewer devices coming with headphone jacks, having affordable wireless headphones has become important. Mixcder HD901 headphones offer fantastic value for anyone looking for wireless listening without breaking the bank.
Two of the biggest things I’ve longed from my Airpods seem simple enough — Active Noise Cancellation with a battery life of longer than 3.5 hours. And if they could come in black, that wouldn’t be bad either. Luckily with the AU-Stream ANCs, I finally might have all of the things that I wanted.
If you have AirPods or intend to get a pair, you should really invest in a case that will protect not only the pods themselves but the case that holds them from sustaining hairline scratches. There’s one case I’ve been using the past few weeks that have surprised me, and I think you should check out. Introducing the CarryOn by intelliARMOR, a hand-crafted leather case designed for the Apple AirPods….
Berlin’s annual IFA show is the largest consumer electronics event in Europe with “more digital lifestyle products in one place than any other show worldwide.” After walking the show floor, sitting in on private pre-briefings, standing inside packed press conferences, and attending media-only showcase events, these are the items we’ve chosen for Gear Diary’s Best of IFA 2019 Awards.
RHA came on the scene rather quietly but over time has won a large, growing fan base. Their new T20 Wireless headphones will only help further solidify RHA’s position as a top-tier audio company; they sound great and have unique features that will impress.
Anker has got your students covered for the dreaded back to school blues with some great music accessories as well as a fantastic power bank. All of these gadgets are small enough to travel with while offering great features and functionality at a reasonable price. Anker sent each of these products my way to test before I recommended them.
There’s certainly a lot of competition in the truly wireless headphone market, but a lot of the latest have attempted to up the ante in terms of features, more specifically battery life. But the Cleer Ally True Wireless Headphones are doing just that, and more.
HELM Audio is a brand you might not have heard of when people mention their favorite wireless earbuds, but that’s about to change as their True Wireless 5.0 Bluetooth earbuds pack a punch for a less than you’d expect price.
September is almost here, and you’re probably seeing endless “Back to School” commercials which can only mean one thing — people are headed back to the classroom. We’ve found quite a few products that you might enjoy, whether you are a parent, a student, or even a teacher.
As a personal fan of Creative’s products, I was pretty stoked to hear that they would be releasing three products that would be sure to bring the noise. I had a chance to check out all three, so let’s dive in.
The last time I flew to Israel, I had a choice. I could enjoy the quiet provided by my wireless noise-canceling headphones, or I could use United’s crappy wired earphones and watch the onboard entertainment. The new RHA Wireless Flight Adapter makes that choice a thing of the past by letting you cut the cord to your airline entertainment system.
Some time ago, Tejas was sent a pair of $20 Bluetooth wireless over-the-ear headphones. During a conversation with the Gear Diary team, he raised the question of how they might stand up to far more expensive headphones. It was a good question. So… we got the New Jersey members of the team together to find out.
I own several pair of true wireless headphones. The least expensive of the are more than $150. I have avoided the inexpensive offerings coming to market but when iFrogz offered a chance to check out their sub-$60 iFrogz AIRTIME true wireless earbuds, I figured I would check them out. I have to admit; I’m rather impressed.
The Jabra Elite 85h are the most well rounded Bluetooth headphones I’ve ever used; checking the box on almost every category including sound quality, active noise canceling, clear phone calls, great battery life, intuitive controls, and water resistance. When paired with Jabra’s companion smartphone app, I’m not sure any other Bluetooth headphones can compete. The Elite 85h retail for $299.99.
When Raina got a job that required her to commute to the city I bought her a pair of AirPods. She loves them; I’m not a fan. I don’t like their fit, and I think they sound like crap. The RHA TrueConnect True Wireless Earbuds have the same design but, unlike the AirPods, I’m a fan!
With the summer in full swing, chances are you’ll be traveling, working, exercising, or just somewhere listening to audio. Why not get yourself some new headphones from Master & Dynamic?
