Back in 2013, OnePlus jumped into the smartphone scene with a bang, introducing their OnePlus One smartphone, which quickly distinguished itself by offering flagship class smartphone features at a pricepoint of just $299. Thanks to massive community support, OnePlus was able to quickly build a name for itself as the enthusiast class smartphone with the best value possible.
Fast forward to June 2017 and OnePlus has continued this tradition of delivering flagship class smartphones at very reasonable prices. The OnePlus 5 featured all the latest and greatest hardware including a 5.5-inch AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, up to 8GB of [...]
When it comes to gaming peripherals, everyone knows that Razer makes some of the best and given that most gaming peripherals can be used in everyday life, the company naturally branched out to create gamer inspired lifestyle gear. One such line of products is the Razer Hammerhead line of in-ear headphones which we were fairly impressed with when we reviewed it way back in 2013.
Naturally, given the success of the Hammerhead series, Razer released a new Bluetooth version, the Hammerhead BT which we’ll be reviewing today.Razer Hammerhead BT Specifications Manufacturer Razer Model Hammerhead BT Type In-Ear Interface Bluetooth 4.1 + [...]
Last year, I reviewed the Creative Roar 2 portable wireless speaker which has quickly become my favorite Bluetooth speaker of all time. Along with great sound quality, the Creative Roar 2 is portable, has a long battery life, is an extremely good looking speaker, and is a good value for the price. Since then, Creative has released the next generation of their Roar speakers, the first of which is the Creative iRoar launched early last year.
Following up on the iRoar, Creative also launched a miniaturized version of the iRoar, creatively titled the Creative iRoar Go. The new Creative iRoar Go promises the same powerful [...]
Razer is expanding their Hammerhead lineup of in-ear headphones with a new Hammerhead BT wireless headset as well as a new Hammerhead wired headset designed for use with iOS Lightning devices. The two new headphones complement the already existing Razer Hammerhead V2 and Razer Hammerhead Pro V2.
Similar to the rest of the Razer Hammerhead in-ear headsets, the two new additions to the Hammerhead lineup will feature 10mm drivers along with a carrying case for easy transport.

Maybe it’s unprofitable or maybe it’s too technically difficult. Either way, there don’t seem to be too many companies out there making decent high end powered speakers at reasonable prices.
After recently speaking with some of our readers, we were introduced to a Canadian company by the name of Kanto Living, which produces high end desktop speakers similar to those found in Audioengine’s speaker lineup. As we have previously reviewed and have been quite impressed with all of Audioengine’s offerings, we were quite intrigued when we heard about Kanto Living.
Looking at Kanto Living’s website, they make everything from [...]
When it comes to premium desktop computer speakers, few manufacturers on the market match the level of Audioengine when it comes to sound quality. Over the years, we’ve had the opportunity to review the Audioengine A2+ and the Audioengine A5+ which were outstanding speakers that are simply unmatched by other computer speaker manufacturers.
Recently, Audioengine launched their latest Audioengine HD3 speaker which is similar to their popular Audioengine A2+ with several improvements including magnetic speaker grilles, Bluetooth support, an improved internal DAC and more. Given how impressed we were with the Audioengine A2+, we jumped at the [...]
Premium speaker maker Audioengine recently announced their new HD3 Wireless Speakers designed for those looking for top notch audio quality in a relatively compact small form factor.
Featuring dual built-in class A/B amplifiers, durable 2.75″ Kevlar woofers and 3/4″ silk dome tweeters, the Audioengine HD3 will offer a premium sound experience with its classic speaker design and high end components.
“Classic speaker design with no plastic, full stereo sound, whole-house wireless and no setup hassles make HD3 the ultimate mini music system.” says Brady Bargenquast, Audioengine co-founder.
Connectivity options include 3.5″ stereo [...]
Several years ago, I reviewed the Creative Sound Blaster ROAR which I awarded with the CPCR Gold Awesome Award. It was an excellent prdouct that was portable, had great battery life, had fantastic sound quality, and could easily fill a room, an outdoor gathering, or a campsite with plenty of music. It checked all the right boxes and quickly became my all time favorite Bluetooth speaker.
While the Creative Sound Blaster ROAR was already quite impressive, Creative has spent the past few years refining their product, which ultimately culminated in the new Creative Sound Blaster ROAR 2, which retains pretty much the entire Sound Blaster ROAR’s [...]
Over the past couple years, I’d have to say that I’ve become pretty impressed with Razer. Despite being a relatively small, privately owned gaming peripherals company, they’ve successfully managed to enter and reinvigorate a number of product markets that have stagnated for a long time. A perfect example of this is the gaming notebook market where Razer not only helped renew and reinvigorate the market, but also spurred development in the industry as a whole.
One market Razer abandoned several years ago is the premium PC gaming speaker market and it looks like they’re ready to finally jump back in. Back [...]
Well, it’s that time of year again. The time of year to eat a lot, drink a lot, and be thankful that we get to do another review for Audioengine! Yup. It’s funny how it worked out in the past few years that I’ve done one review every year for Audioengine. In 2012, it was the Audioengine A5+ coupled with the Audioengine D1, last year it was the Audioengine A2+, and with 2014 coming to a close, this year we’ll be checking out the newly released Audioengine B2!
The Audioengine B2 is Audioengine’s latest speaker that combines many of the features of the Audioengine A2+ with the Bluetooth functionality of the [...]
