Spring is on the horizon, and after this polar vortex winter, I’m sure a lot of you are starting to think about how nice it would be to be able to enjoy being outside again, without having to battle the elements. I know I am. With that in mind, I recently spent some time checking out the Rocketfish Indoor/Outdoor wireless speaker. Whether you’re playing hockey in your backyard rink, or planning your next BBQ party, this handy speaker has plenty of power to make itself be heard and is convenient enough that you won’t hesitate to take it out whenever the opportunity presents itself.

With much travel, comes much needed peace and comfort from headphones. I was thrilled when I discovered headphones leader Bose had launched their first pair of in-ear noise-cancelling headphones, called the Bose QC20. They also co-released the QC20i headphones specific for iOS users.

One of the biggest trends in speakers in the last year was not just Bluetooth, but Bluetooth in combination with smaller form factors. A number of manufacturers have gotten into this game and Klipsch is one of the latest with the GiG, a small speaker that is meant to pump out impressive sound in a portable frame. Its unique design treatments and attention to detail make it an interesting option for a smaller speaker, but how does its performance match up once the music starts playing?

Review: Creative Sound Blaster EVO Zx

by Blogger on ‎09-22-2013 08:27 AM


The Creative name carries some weight in computer audio. They have been one of the top makers of PC audio gear for decades now. Their ‘Sound Blaster’ name was once synonymous with PC audio technology. I spent some time recently playing around with the Sound Blaster EVO ZX, one of their Bluetooth headsets and I’ve got to say, they’re really still going strong. The only Creative products I’d used in the past has been PC soundcards so I had no idea what to expect with their headsets. I’m happy to say that all the great qualities I was familiar with from their soundcards are also evident in their headsets. These guys know what they’re doing.

Sennheiser already scored a winner with the over-ear Momentum headphones, but now, they’ve slimmed down the profile and slightly changed the design materials to create an on-ear version that are considerably more portable. These won’t have the noise isolation of the bigger model, but the components inside are virtually identical, all but ensuring music will sound great on these.

Sport headphones aren't always known for having the best sound or for being the most comfortable. Mostly designed to be rugged, utilitarian and basically, stay on during exercise, doesn't equate a great sound experience which is something Monster is trying to change all-that with its Inspiration In-Ear Headphones.

It doesn’t take long to look at the Marley Roots Rock Bluetooth Audio System and realize that it stands on its own when it comes to its unique design. The combination of wood and fabric are a departure from the hard plastics and metals so common in portable speaker systems, but good sound doesn’t come from just what’s on the surface. We look into what kind of audio prowess the Roots Rock can offer.

Headphones are in abundance these days, and the level of choice makes it tough to find the right pair for you. Urbanears has come to market with a couple different models that aim to offer the kind of sound bass-lovers would appreciate, but without the drowning effect and price of other brands like Beats. Plus, there’s the Slussen, a cool adapter that turns your iOS device into a DJ console.

Good sound and good music doesn’t have to come out of a huge speaker, especially if you’re living in a smaller space, like an apartment or condo. Sony’s X Series speaker (SRS-BTX500) is a model that isn’t portable enough to take with you everywhere, but packs in impressive audio quality that can fill a room without taking up too much real estate.
