Anytime I hear the name Bang & Olufsen; I know the device will be something that costs a lot of money. There are other things you can count on when you hear the B&O name as well, like style and quality sound. Back during CES Bang & Olufsen announced a new series called B&O Play Read The Full Story
Acclaimed audio makers Bang & Olufsen are no strangers to the mobile industry, but here at CES 2015 they are unveiling some rather interesting products that represent a few firsts. Among these is the Play H8 headphones. B & O are positioning this as their first wireless headphones, but they are definitely more than just that.
CES day three brought interesting tidbits, but nothing monumental. If nothing more, we got to see some really interesting things we might actually want to buy rather than the 80-inch TV we know we won’t even look twice at next time we’re shopping. There were also some eye-rollers, as well as some cool home automation gadgets you might be interested in.
Inside the newly announced Audi Q7, the newest version of Audi virtual cockpit will run the show. Users will be working with a new MMI all-in touch control unit, and both Google Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also able to be run to connect to users' iPhone or Android smartphone.
Bang & Olufsen has a few wares on display here at CES 2015, but undoubtedly the most eye-catching piece of them all is the BeoSound Moment, a sound system, practically a sound system controller in the form of a large tablet-like slab, that has a few gimmicks up its sleeve.
It takes a special kind of crazy to show up to the biggest consumer electronics show on Earth, to pay for an exhibition space next to Oculus VR and then advertise your product as an "Oculus killer." That's exactly what 3DHead did with its "GCS3" headset. That phrase is even painted on their booth, as seen above.
A periscope. An asthma inhaler. We’ve even heard the RE from HTC referred to as other things we won’t print, but one thing remains clear: HTC wants you snapping more pics. With the RE, HTC is moving past their time as a phone maker, and headlong into the world of accessories.
When Samsung announceda trio of audio productsahead of CES, the two egg-shaped speakers immediately grabbed my eye. Obviously, these don't look like regular ol' in-home gear, and while Bang & Olufsen has been making said audio techmore decorativefor quite some time, an affordable entry would certainly be welcome.
When it comes to headphones thesedays you have a whole world of choices out there. Along with those choices comes an array of features and price points. Bluetooth is one of the features becoming more popular, but wireless connectivity usually comes at a higher price. Mpow is bucking that high price trend by introducing the Muze Touch Bluetooth headphones.
Since streaming music has become more popular, it should come as no surprise that home stereo systems are starting to get a connected makeover. This could be the year that Sonos, the longtime leader in this field, gets some competition.
When I’m considering a new pair of earphones, I usually skip the in-ear variety because they seem to always fall out of my ears and I don’t like the noise isolation feature that they usually possess. When Moshi Audio approached me to ask if I would be interested in reviewing theirClarus earphones, their ear loop design intrigued me, so I said yes.
There's no question that IBM is undergoing a huge and painful transformation . Chairman and CEO Ginni Rometty is doing a lot of things right to navigate IBM through it. But Tuesday was a pivotal day for the company and she was no where to be seen, missing a chance to show leadership. On Tuesday, IBM announced its fourth quarter earnings and offered guidance for 2015.
CES day four (technically day 3, but we’re counting Monday’s pre-event as a day anyway) brought a lot of fun little gadgets and toys. There was more VR, some point-and-shoot cameras, and even a printer that’s not a printer. More Internet of Things stuff was announced, and in case you weren’t sure, SD cards are NFC-capable, now.
We're barely half way through the year, but the current gen PlayStation 4 is already teaming with games it probably makes your head hurt to count them all. And it isn't just the big titles either, with dozens of indie's carving their way into gamers' hearts.
I don't use Apple devices, so I don't think this would affect me. Apple needs to remember it's going after only a portion of the market.I'd probably consider the Apple TV thing if it's ad-free and would have all the channels my shows are on. If it's like, just the basic stuff like the Big 4 plus sports, news, and family, I probably won't go for it.
The platform wars are moving to smart TVs. Don't believe it? Samsung is putting Tizen on all its smart TVs this year. LG 's own sets already have webOS inside. Now Panasonic is joining the fray, but not with an operating system that it has developed itself.
April might be over, but the month definitely went out with a bang. And although a lot of things did happen in those 30 long days, we cannot deny the commanding presence of the LG G4 , which was finally officially revealed after half a dozen teasers, which actually didn't leave much to be surprised about.
Jay Z has reportedly completed his acquisition of Aspiro , the company behind the Tidal and WiMP streaming sites known for offering lossless music and curated playlists. We talked to Aspiro CEO Andy Chen about the rise of Tidal, the company's big new streaming site, as well as the future of music.
Sony is no stranger to CES, and tends to make the event their forum for announcing new products. Last year, we saw a bevy of awesome new cameras and a still-in-progress SmartBand tracker. Another thing Sony does well is high-end devices and products. The latest rumor has Sony going absolutely off on tablets, bringing a massive screen capable of 4K resolution.
