Are these the best “inexpensive” headphones available? They just might be considering how well reviewed they are. The Status Audio HD One Headphones ($49) are all about the (wired) sound. No logos, no celebrities, just sound. Join the 100,000+ customers enjoying premium sounding, beautifully constructed headphones at a fraction...

There is no shortage of options when it comes to Bluetooth speakers. The Vers Audio 1Q is worth a look from a style standpoint. Specs are ok but aren’t particularly amazing. Bluetooth 2.1, a 3.5mm auxiliary input, 30-foot range, and a 6.5-watt 2-inch speaker. Battery...

Fitness gadgets continue to fight for a ride on your wrist. Samsung isn’t new to the fitness wristband space and hopes the Gear Fit 2 ($179) will fix problems that plagued the original Gear Fit. Samsung tuned up their previous fitness formula and added more features.  ...

The Boombotix Bass Station bluetooth wireless speaker isn’t your average speaker. The hexagon shaped speaker is pretty great on its own but when paired with its 15W subwoofer dock things get a bit more interesting. Some extra features include a 2 gigabyte flash drive, clip-mount, Siri / Google voice control, speakerphone capability, waterproof to 3-feet, and rechargeable all-day battery. The Boombot...

Gittler Instruments has went and made a scary looking titanium guitar. Minimalist begins to explain this strange looking guitar but certainly doesn’t describe it. It looks like a yagi antenna, a medical instrument, or a weapon that the Terminator would use. The Gittler Guitar employs a luminescent fret marking system. Our unique implementation utilizes miniature cross holes and pinpoint LED’s that shine up from a central gun-drilled channel. The result is a soft...

The Singing Machine SMC Home Karaoke System has to be the prettiest karaoke system around. It looks like something from Bang & Olufsen. Even if you never sing a single song it is a very good looking piece to have sitting near your entertainment center. During the day, or night I suppose, you can use it as a Bluetooth speaker. Come night...

Hmmm. Not sure about this design which is often hailed as “art”, maybe it would grow on me if I had $155,000 to spend on speakers. Yep. You read that right. $155K for a pair of Oma Imperia Speakers. Designed by David D’Imperio and built in Pennsylvania out of black walnut, cherry, or ash wood. To give you an idea of the scale; they are five feet deep and over seven feet tall. Did I mention they cost $155,000? The Imperia is a four way horn system, with...

Earbuds (or EarPods) are a great way to listen to your movies/music and take phone calls. At least when you have them with you. The folks at TurtleCell agree and have built a case that not only protects your iPhone 5/5S or 6 but also has built-in and retractable headphones. If nothing else it is a unique looking iPhone case. No mention if this...

Apple announced a few new items yesterday including the iPad Pro, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and a totally redesigned Apple TV. The new unit is called “The New Apple TV”. Really? Apple, if you are listening, clear out the old model and just call the new one “Apple TV”. Things are starting to get confusing over there. I digress. The new Apple TV is a pretty large leap for an already good product. You now get a new remote with a glass touchpad, integrated Siri voice control, 6-buttons (no more left, right, up, down),...

What the heck is a bone conduction headphone? It is a headphone that doesn’t push sound through your earhole, but instead conducts sound through the bones of your skull. So the idea is that these are easier on your eardrums, don’t block your regular hearing (safer), and are very comfortable. The Aftershokz Bluez 2 Bone Conduction Headphones ($79.95) are great for listening to music and also come with a built-in noise canceling microphone for phone calls.  Video...
