The by-product of a partnership between acclaimed British acoustics brand KEF and world-renowned Porsche Design group, the Space One over-ear wireless headphones combine precision audio engineering with Active Noise Cancelling technologies for distortion-free sound. Made with premium materials, they’re powered by 40MM drivers with large 20mm neodymium magnets and lightweight CCAW voice coil to deliver crisp high tones, rich midrange and tight bass.
Sound By Human is much more than a somewhat odd-looking headphone. This unique wireless listening device is also a speaker, filters out ambient noise, allows multiple source music sharing, & offers biometric & sleep-tracking, as well as real-time audio translation in 8 different languages.
Adiós Google Cardboard, hello Daydream View. Google’s latest VR headset uses your Android smartphone to create a lightweight, comfortable, and light-blocking VR experience. Like the Oculus Rift, the headset enclosure is made of cloth, available in slate, red, & white. A 2-button remote controller is included, which stores inside the headset.
Two new HTC-built phones from Google have just been officially unveiled. The difference between Google’s Pixel & Pixel XL mainly comes down to the size & resolution of their screens. The Pixel gets a 5-inch 1080p display & the XL gives you a 5.5-inch Quad HD panel display. Both run Google’s Android software on a Snapdragon 821 processor and have Google Assistant built-in as well as supporting Google Daydream VR.
Designed to be the ultimate mobile USB microphone for podcasting, voiceover, and your Youtube videos, The Raspberry will also be a major improvement for your FaceTime and conference calls. It’s an internal acoustic diffuser (IAD) mic that delivers dramatic, 24-bit studio-quality sound directly to your PC, Mac, iPhone or iPad. It also works with popular apps like Garage Band, Opinion Podcasts, Spire Recorder, & MoviePro.
The Flex from Canary is the first and only indoor/outdoor, weatherproof HD security camera that can be used wire-free or plugged in. Rain, shine, or dark of night it will keep an eye on your property. Yes, HD night vision with motion detection. Also a 116 º wide-angle lens. Plug it in or go wireless—its built-in Li-Ion battery will provide months of use on a single charge.
Roku just came out swinging with a whole new line of streaming devices. 5 in total. They range from basic to packed-with-features. The Roku Express & Express+ both feature 1080p output and come with an IR remote that has shortcut buttons for popular streaming channels. The Premiere & Premiere+ devices support 4K resolutions at up to 60 fps. Leading the release is the Roku Ultra which features everything found in the Premier+ but also adds Dolby Digital/Digital Plus encoding, a USB port for local media playback and an enhanced remote. Time to cut the cable if you haven’t already.
What we like about these wireless headphones from Sol Republic comes down to the design. Rather than cramming all the technology and hardware into the earbud itself resulting in unwanted bulk or an oversized fit, the design of the Relay Sports Wireless places the batteries & electronics into 2 pods on the connecting wire you wear around your neck. This also makes it easier to pull one out for conversation without missing a step.
To prepare you for Apple’s phasing-out of the headphone jack, we recommend BeSound’s Thunder earbuds. These noise-cancelling MFi certified buds plug straight into the Lightning port on your device and offer a built-in mic plus an “Aware-mode” that cancels out most but not all ambient sound, keeping you safer when you’re out on the streets.
This is the best GoPro ever, and after 2 years with no new product releases, it really needed to be. The new design is waterproof without a housing & features a 2-inch touch display. Shoots 4k video & 12MP stills. With a GoPro Plus subscription, the HERO5 can automatically upload those photos & videos directly to the cloud for easy viewing, editing and sharing on the go.
