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).
What do you do with that old pair of expensive speakers you purchased back in college now that everything is going wireless? Logitech has an answer for that -- just get one of their new Bluetooth Audio Adapters (US$39.99) and you'll be streaming music to your big speakers in minutes. Specifications Design Highlights The Bluetooth Audio Adapter is tiny and unobtrusive.
Note: Images can be clicked to view a larger sizeIt’s raining Bluetooth speakers! They’re everywhere, aren’t they? Ultra-portable Bluetooth speakers are handy to take anywhere, but they often sacrifice audio quality for size. If you don’t mind porting around a larger Bluetooth speaker, you can then become a little more discerning when it comes to the sound quality.
There wasn’t anything wrong with the softly curved, rounded rectangles and squares of its previous speakers, but NudeAudio went with a fancier approach this time. Studio 5 is 6” tall, with an amorphous, asymmetrical shape and offset Lightning dock.
We were surprised by just how much we liked Divoom's Voombox , so we're excited to hear how its Voombox Travel Rugged Portable Wireless Speaker ($50) sounds. The size, shape, and price tag are all very similar to that of JBL's Clip and Logitech's X100 . That is to say, it's a palmable round speaker, with metal, plastic, and rubber elements. It streams audio using Bluetooth 4.
In the wonderful world of technology there often hundreds or products and hundreds or ways to do something. For instance, you can use Plex with a Google TV set top box to stream your videos from your PC to the living room. You can use a micro HDMI cable to connect directly to your TV.
Yes, Windows Phones are finally keeping up with the Joneses. Thanks to thelatest update, smartphones running Microsoft's mobile OS can now have top-of-the-line components. We got a good taste of how this feels with theNokia Lumia 1520(spoiler: It's pretty dang good), but most people would prefer flagship specs in a smaller phone.
Also known as SFQ-05, the original Sound Rise debuted in October 2012, shortly after Apple introduced the Lightning connector in the iPhone 5 and two iPods. Sound Rise consisted of a plastic and fabric rectangular box atop a trapezoidal platform with a Dock Connector plug in the front, and Bluetooth wireless hardware inside for audio streaming.
Here's the thing withsoundbars, sound plates and every other gadget that attempts to fill the niche between a full 5.1home theatersystem and the tinny speakers built into your TV -- they rarely soundgreatand they usually look even worse.
I enjoyed reviewing the Nokia Lumia 2520 Windows 8.1 RT tablet a few weeks ago and since it’s been over a year, I thought it was time that I reviewed another Windows Phone device as well. Verizon offered to send me the Nokia Lumia Icon (aka Lumia 929), which is available exclusively from them. I swapped SIM cards with my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and have been using the Icon for the past week.
“Open the pod bay doors, HAL”,”I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I can’t do that” is exactly what popped into my mind the first time I saw the CERA wireless portable speaker from Tego Audio. You may think that is a funny thought to pop into my head, but looking at the speaker and how its made, and being a child of the 70′s when our space exploration was in its infancy, the CERAs design makes me think that it would be at home in the 70′s, now or in the future. So, let’s see if reality has hit fantasy.
With the new Bluetooth Audio Adapter from Logitech, you’ll be able to convert any powered speakers, like PC speakers, home stereo systems, or A/V receivers, into Bluetooth-enabled speakers. You can pair the adapter with both your smart phone and a tablet and stream music from one of them.
It’s incredibly difficult these days to enter the consumer audio market; big name brands like Sennheiser, Beats by Dr Dre and Bose tend to flood any conversation regarding the best headphones available on the market, whether deservedly or otherwise.

It comes with a decent software bundle including:“It’s on the roadmap for future updates, date is tbd.
From a visual standpoint, Pocket Kick clearly fits the Soundfreaq brand. While there are many color variants available, most of the company’s speakers have a black-on-black scheme as a default. This one is no different, with strong steel grilles on the front and back, sandwiching a rubberized plastic frame in the center.
I’m not normally a fan of over the ear style headphones because they feel a little too isolating and usually aren’t that comfortable to me. When the VOXOA HD Wireless Headphones were offered to me to review, my first thought was to offer them to Bill H. or the rest of the Gadgeteer team, but the fact that they werewireless headphones piqued my interest so I accepted the offer.
