Most of the time, I won't even report about anything regarding the Apple ecosystem unless it's full of crap. This time around, it's a total first world problem. Remember those brand new Apple AirPods that was announced alongside the Apple iPhone 7/Plus a few months ago? Yeah, that pair of wireless earphones that they shoved down all users of the jackless iPhone 7/Plus.
I'm not gonna lie - the first feedback I got was that it looks like a negligible piece of plastic headphones trying to look nice. It even advertises itself as a pair of "deep bass headphones" too. But that's where everything else caught me by surprise. How surprising? Check out our review of the SonicGear Studio 2 to know it all!
I can say it with confidence - 2016 was the year of RGB uprising. We've been seeing an insane amount of RGB peripherals, LED strips, and even being implemented to motherboards, GPUs, and whatnot. I thought RGB multimedia speakers were never going to be a thing, but here we are - the SonicGear Titan 7 BTMI is a speaker with multicolor.
At this point of time, I'm pretty sure most of you have already seen the ZenFone 2 (which we also reviewed here) - and we're not done with it.. When we opened the package, we saw one special thing that was included - the earphones. That pair of earphones is the closest to the unreleased ZenEar, which currently can only be acquired through bundling of the ZE551ML version with 4GB RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage.
Not too long ago, Cooler Master announced their MasterPulse Bass FX earphones - an in-ear monitor. Now, Cooler Master is back with another MasterPulse over-ear Bass FX headset. It's certainly clear that Cooler Master's direction towards audio devices is towards their Bass FX technology.
We've tried and tested many Bluetooth speakers over the years - but there's one that particular brand that stood out. We only reviewed one of their products before, and they've gone missing - and that is Elysium's Zeon III. After a hiatus for more than 2 years - Elysium returns with their brand new Bluetooth speaker - the Elysium Iron Mini. It has a retro look to it - but does it sound good, though?
I'm no stranger to consumer audio products, and definitely very familiar with Bluetooth speakers - ranging from weirdly shaped speakers that look like telephones, golf balls, grenades, and even sound bars. Now, I have this Zeon III sitting here. How does it perform though?
It's... a rather straightforward name, in my opinion. Sony has an existing lineup of audio products under the name "EXTRA BASS" - with all caps of course, as that's how Sony stylized it. Anyway, here are the new audio products that fall under Sony EXTRA BASS lineup.
