Jabra Sport Wireless+ Headset Review

Jabra definitely needs no introduction when it comes to quality Bluetooth earpieces and headsets. The company's decision to take its Bluetooth expertise beyond telecommunications was a move we couldn't but welcome. The world of audio and audio accessories is one where there is little room for mediocrity, since users expect the best experience out of their equipment. They do expect their audio gadgets to give them the best sound reproduction possible. Jabra’s ...

Treading on the Competition: Jabra’s Solemate Review

When we were handed Jabra’s Solemate family of Bluetooth speakers for us to review, we couldn’t but remember Jawbone's Jambox - the last standalone Bluetooth speaker we tested - as we still can recall, it did not really impress. But things are different with the Solemates: they have a distinct, footwear-inspired design with extremely high quality materials that immediately give a durable "rugged" feel.

Roadie Tuner: A Lebanese-brewed Portable Guitar Tuner

For those of you who still haven’t heard of Roadie, It is an automatic tuner for any stringed music instrument. The concept is extremely simple and pure genius, to say the least. It uses the iPhone and a motorized accessory (which totally looks awesome by the way), to tune the instrument. It connects to the Roadie mobile app on the iPhone via low energy Bluetooth. The app then receives the string sound, analyzes it, processes it and sends the ...

Back to the Future: Ted Baker Fastnet

This would have looked futuristic a few years, or decades ago. Back in the time when a GameBoy would turn heads, when a Sony 'Sports' Walkman would be a killer. But guess what? This time-shift effect it has does make it look extremely cool, the way retro cameras can look awesome nowadays. This is not a radio. The FastNet is a bluetooth speaker. But these present days, this does make it a radio. You can simply  access one of your installed streaming ...

Great Earphones Can Be Cheap Too

It's that time of the year when I go on a random group test craze. This time around, I went for a budget earphones comparison, since music is something essential in my personal life, and that of my smartphone(s). After shuffling through endless pages of in-ear products, I ended up choosing four pairs, and these will definitely not leave you any excuse for not getting great sound out of your smartphone. Here's why. Sony XBA-C10 What stroke me first ...

Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery 6 Review

I have to admit that since my son was born back in March 2012, I have taken thousands and thousands of pictures of him. I know that parents will understand that feeling where they want to preserve every single moment and every single gesture that this little creature makes, as those times will never be regained again. And all those pictures are backed up in many places just in case a hard disk crashes or fails me or anything was deleted by mistake ...

Thoughts On How To (Better) Choose Your Headphones

Active Noise Cancellation and Whatnot Active noise cancellation is basically electronic circuitry that "listens" to ambient noises. Then a near exact opposite wavelength to the offending sounds is generated, reducing our ability to hear them. Headphones with active noise-canceling technology typically excel at consistent noises; that's the main reason most active noise-canceling headphones aren't very good at masking sudden and unpredictable sounds. ...

A Few Thoughts on Amazon’s Autorip

Amazon' new Autorip service gives you free access to a digital version of the physical media you just bought. Meaning buying an audio CD will automatically grant you access to soft MP3 versions of the album's songs to download and enjoy. The same applies to books and DVDs. Direct implication? This might save the audio CD from obsolescence. Or will it just delay it? At first, when hearing the news, we immediately felt this was a very thoughtful move ...

Music: Let’s Play It Loud and Cloud

So Grooveshark is having hard times lately... in the name of music copyrights and other legal shenanigans. However, this cannot blur the fact that Grooveshark was the very first to bring music streaming to the masses, before being repeatedly beaten down. Google pulled Grooveshark's mobile app from Google Play in early 2011, after Apple had done the same the previous year. Moreover, Spotify launched in the U.S. in July, 2011 with the blessing ...

Timeline: a History of Headphones

The 20th century allowed our human ears to enjoy private music, more than any time before. In 1910, Nathaniel Baldwin invented the headphones in the kitchen of his Utah home. In a nutshell, headphones enabled people to privately and individually interact with media; beyond personal usage, headphones are also indispensable tools for music recording, film production, TV and radio programming. Here is a timeline of how we’ve gone from Baldwin’s ...
