I’m an art director by trade, so I pay almost as much attention to the design of an item as how it performs. Maybe that’s why I’m an unapologetic Apple fan boy. I’m also obsessed with audio gear, so when a new speaker comes out and doesn’t look like anything else, I notice.
Harman just announced a new Bluetooth speaker system that's portable and delivers excellent audio quality. The Harman Kardon GO + Play is described with an iconic design and is capable of bringing wireless convenience and premium sound over Bluetooth.
Amplifying acoustic guitars has come a long way since the early 60s and 70s. A common form of acoustic amplification today is the Piezo pickup. That style of pickupis fine if your guitar comes with it built in, but what happens when you have an older guitar or a new one that you want to amplify? You could retro fit a Piezo pickup in your acoustic, but do you want to drill a hole into your.
Creative just won’t leave it alone. First they came out with the Sound Blaster Roar speaker which put almost all other Bluetooth speakers to shame.

Back in 2011, I reviewed the then new Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air Speaker/Dock . It was—and still is—an incredible speaker that blows away most wireless speakers. After the review, my wife “helped herself” to it, so it now sits on top of her piano facing the kitchen where she can use Apple Airplay to stream her favorite music.
If everybody loves an underdog story, why aren't more people buying HTC phones? That's the question the Android stalwart must be puzzling over, having spent the past four to five years trying to figure out how to be "critic's choice" rather than "also-ran" in the smartphone space.
Do you have a hard time finding a good pair of headphones? I do. I’m really picky when it comes to sound quality, but I’m also really critical of the way headphones fit. If I stick a pair of headphones in my ears and they start bugging me within a few minutes, they immediately go in a drawer to collect dust. Usually it’s the fit that is the main problem because I have sensitive ears.

In my never-ending quest to find the perfect Bluetooth speaker, I’ve managed to collect several small, rugged speakers. What I haven’t gotten my hands on is a good Bluetooth speaker that is powerful enough to use at a party and stylish enough to not have to hide. While marching forth on my epic audio journey, I was offered the chance to review the Vava Voom Bluetooth speaker.
Although I’ve had my issues with portable Bluetooth speakers, I’ve grown to appreciate the convenience of having one around. It’s gotten to the point that I almost always have one playing either in the kitchen, bathroom or outdoors cooking. They’ve become indispensable to my daily life.
Back at CES this year, Razer made a surprise announcement. Sure, the Core external GPU solution and the Stargazer webcam, I was shown something that had little to do with gaming at all. I'm talking, of course, about the Razer Nabu Watch. The Nabu Watch isn't the first wearable from Razer. They've released a couple of fitness trackers under the Nabu name.

Whether you’re working out or just sitting around, not having the wire is what people really want.
I'm not the sort of person who shies away from slime green headphones - but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a pair of muted grays and blacks now and again.
