Now Funding: Aipower Wearbuds

For me, wireless headphones, be they over-the-ear (like the Soundcore Q30) or earbuds (my current favorites are also from Soundcore, the Liberty Air 2 Pro ) have become a constant. Earbuds are great when going out for a jog, and the on-ear are perfect for WFH. I also like to have earbuds with me when I head out to handle an unexpected phone call. But what if you forget to grab your (admittedly small) case? That’s where the Aipower Wearbuds can help you out.

Just Announced: Soundcore Life Q35 ANC Headphones

If I’ve learned one thing during this work-from-home phase of the pandemic, it’s that good headphones – particularly those with Active Noise Cancellation (aka ANC) – can really make a significant difference. To that end, I’ve been going through the Soundcore lineup, reviewing the Q20, the Q30 (and an update after a firmware release), and even had a go at their ANC earbuds, the Liberty Air 2 Pro. They’ve just released a new addition to their Life Q series – the Soundcore Life Q35.

In Review: Enacfire Soundtank Bluetooth Speaker

We have definitely gotten into the swing of reviewing more audio products over the last year, though we’ve tended to focus more on the personal aspect of audio – be it via earbuds, headphones, or even headphone amps. Well, what if you want to share the sound? That’s where a solid bluetooth speaker can be handy, such as one like the Enacfire Soundtank that we got in recently.

Some new heavy metal Casio Edifice models are available

Well, not heavy metal in the sense of thrashing the mosh pit, but hey, if you want to, you could. No, instead, these are some watches that give you a full metal jacket on the case and bracelet, while hooking on up to your phone. Oh, and giving you a nice dose of color as well – that’s what the Casio Edifice ECB20 models have in store for you.

Grado is cutting the wires with the GT220

Many a brand has created what they tout as the best true wireless earbuds to hit the market. Some of these have been quite nice (see our review on the Audio Technica ones), and others have been better suited to the bargain bin. Well, when a company like Grado puts their name on a pair – as they have with the Grado GT220 – then one is inclined to believe it’s a top-shelf play.

Want a wireless mechanical keyboard? The Keychron K8 has you covered.

As of late, I’ve focused more and more on mechanical keyboards, now that I’ve actually been exposed to them. We reviewed a full-sized option from Das Keyboard, and then we also looked at a more compact, Tenkeyless option from Vortex. This latest offering is in that compact vein, but offers something I’ve not tried out – bluetooth connectivity. Meet the Keychron K8.

Now you’re playing with (solar) Power!

Well, that was a pretty famous tagline from my youth, and perhaps yours as well. Of course, these days, when we’re talking power, it’s all about how to save it (at home) or how to provided it to your electron-hungy devices. These Solgaard devices might help with the first, but they definitely will improve things for the second.
