Voxx International (formerly known as Audiovox) has a habit of making a splash at CES, and this year has been no different. Today, the company's Acoustic Research subsidiary announced a pair of audio docks: the AirPlay Audio System (ARAP50) and the Bluetooth Wireless Audio System (ARS70).
Inateck has recently launched a trio of new speakers , one of which is the Inateck MarsBox BP2002 wireless speaker. The market has no shortage of wireless speakers, and so finding a way to stand out is imperative. Inateck managed to do that with its unusual, minimalist and vaguely LEGO-like design.
We’ve all had it happen – that shiny new gadget of yesteryear (or yestermonth, in many cases!) suddenly can’t use the all new and shiny cutting edge things that all your friends are raving about. How can I play my music from across the room since my stereo doesn’t have Bluetooth? Note: Photos may be tapped or clicked for a larger image.
Over the past couple of years, I’ve become a fan of small (and not so small) portable Bluetooth speakers. Yeah I know, they don’t have the audio chops to qualify as anything near “audiophile” and stereo separation is almost nonexistent. But despite all that, they are portable and that counts for a lot.
As a police officer, I spend a significant portion of my day in a vehicle, patrolling. While on patrol, I enjoy having something to listen to in the background. In the past I was satisfied listening to terrestrial radio, but more and more I find I’d ratherlisten to streaming radio or podcasts.
Bowers & Wilkins Apple-compatible Zeppelin speaker , with its large, bulbous shape, has seen a few revisions since it was first introduced in 2007. While it originally featured a dock for the then-ubiquitous iPod, the company's latest model, the Zeppelin Wireless, ditches any form of wired or direct connection.
Joining Lenovo ’s newly unveiled business all-in-one PC is another similar model intended for the average family — the maker hails it as a home entertainment option, though it is obviously for more than consuming media. The IdeaCentre AIO 700 series comes in two flavors: a 24 inch model and a 27 inch model.
Samsung’s newest top-end smartphone is the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. How much has it evolved since the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was introduced last year? Should Note 4 users consider upgrading? Those are just a couple of the questions that I’ll answer in this review. Let’s get started. Note: Images can be clicked to view a larger size.
Jaybird may not ring a bell yet but it's one of the newer brands that can be trusted when it comes to activity trackers and Bluetooth headphones. We've seen the Reign fitness tracking wearable last year and now, here's a new pair of earbuds called the Jaybird X2, an obvious follow-up to the BlueBuds X also released in 2014.
Lenovo is most vocal about its laptops, but the company has more than a few all-in-one systems, some of which we've seen in the past. Latest to join them is the Lenovo C40, which recently launched and brings with it -- with this particular model, at least -- AMD hardware.
If you’re dying to get your hands on the brand new Sonos PLAY:5 wireless speaker , you’d have to wait a little bit more. It won’t start shipping until the middle of this month, but at least, you can now start pre-ordering.
Gone are the wired shackles of past headphones and earbuds -- we live in the wireless age, and with it comes freedom from wires. That's what makes certain wireless earbud models a little bizarre. You've likely seen them; they feature a thick plastic neckband which wraps behind the neck and rests on the shoulders. That's large, garish, and for many users, uncomfortable.
I’ve done a couple of Bluetooth speaker reviews in my short time with The Gadgeteer and have had the good fortune to review some really nice speakers. Despite that, I keep volunteering to review speakers because I really love listening to music. Reviewing these speakers gives me an excuse to blast some music and get some work done around the house.
Plantronics , one of the leaders in audio technology, has just introduced a new pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones in the form of the BackBeat SENSE. This new smart pair promises excellent audio quality and comfort even aftera long period of usage.
It’s no great secret that even at the highest volume, the sound level on a phone is rather lacking. A Bluetooth or wired speaker system is a necessity if you are using your phone to stream music at home. The trade offs with those solutions though are the inconvenience of portability as well as having yet another device to keep charged or powered.
Anyone who uses a smartphone, tablet, or even a laptop knows at some point you’re going to wish you had a speaker that sounds better than the wimpy little speakers that are built in to these portable devices. There’s a plethora of portable speaker options on the market, ranging from really cheap to very expensive.
We have reached a tipping point; smartwatches are no longer something worn only by early adopters and gadget geeks. Smartwatches are a common sight in most big box stores and it’s not hard to walk down the street and find cool tech affixed to someone’s wrist. Early smartwatches were bland devices that stood out from a mile.
This summer, Yamaha debuted its new line of SLG200 Silent Guitars in the United States, and they’re now shipping to customers. The guitars feature a sleek body with an open design and integrated technology that produces sounds akin to “a full-bodied acoustic guitar.
