Bluetooth speakers are a dime a dozen. Every company around has a handful of options to choose from, and we’ve tried most of them, and even reviewed a lot of them here. Trying to figure out what is fluff and what is actually a viable option has been fun, interesting, and tiresome. We’ve dedicated tons and tons of hours into reviewing, testing, dizzying, and listening to tons of hours worth of horrible music, finding the perfect bluetooth speaker for you. Offering a speaker giving you the bang for your buck that you are probably looking for isn’t as easy as…

We’ve had a our fair share of speakers sent over for review, usually they are always Bluetooth, but there are a handful of Airplay speakers that exist and we thought we’d give the Wren V5AP a review, solely based on the design. This is honestly the only reason I wanted to give this a try. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of Airplay speakers. A speaker that I can only connect over WiFi at my house isn’t always something I want to mess with. Bluetooth is so much more mobile and creates a better user experience. Obviously I…

I’ve had the chance to test out many Bluetooth speakers over the past many months, and have a few more to show you moving forward. Finding the alternative to some of the bigger names out there that can benefit those needing a better price point without sacrificing sound is definitely what I’m here to do.

I love the idea of being able to keep headphones and a speaker in my bag if I so need to start an instant dance part…

Velodyne has been around for many years in the home audio business, specifically, providing the best bass reproduction possible. But these are mobile times. People are spending less time indoors in front of a TV and more time on the go. In that trek outside of the house, people often bring music with them to pass the time and set the tone for the day. That’s where headphones come in, and that’s exactly where Velodyne is now venturing. Today we’re looking at the company’s flagship vTrue headphones that while large (by headphone standards), is still far more mobile than strapping…

Honest, true audio quality is not cheap. But be careful. Simply choosing the more expensive pair of headphones won’t necessarily get you far, either. When R&D money is spent on flashy celebrity endorsements, things go south pretty quick. What you’re left with is a fancy shell and little soul. We’ve heard it happen time and time again. And yet manufacturers never learn. When Incipio contacted us about their f08 in-ear phones, we were a bit skeptical. Pricing characteristics and celebrity influence aside, $24.99 is an incredibly attractive price point. That said, it’s also a very restrictive price point. Quite simply,…
