It’s hard to escape portable Bluetooth speakers these days. They’re everywhere, and the competition continues with ferocity. It’s almost getting to that point where they all sort of just blend together. But every once in awhile, one catches your attention and singles itself out. In the case of the Inateck BTSP-10 Bluetooth speaker, it was the artsy design, with a bright logo against a field of blue, that piqued my curiosity.
Attention physically fit people, and those trying to get there: JVC has four new headphone options for you, all under $40.
When it comes to exercise, music is a driving force. Some studies have shown that people are less likely to commit to working out without music. However, not every set of headphones or earbuds are ideal when it comes to cords, sweat, and motion. It makes sense that a wireless product would pair well with activity.
One of the reasons we love music through headphones is the freedom of mobility with secluded sound. You can be out and about in your own world, listening to track after track. But what if you decide you want to share that audio experience with others? Ya gonna need a speaker.
There was a time when Sony championed portable audio. Many of us had a Sony Walkman of one type or another, back in the day. However, once MP3s and digital music hit the scene and completely changed the arena, the company fell out of place to the faster and more innovative. But with Sony’s latest product unveiling at the IFA electronics show in Berlin, all this just might change.

There’s a new headphone brand in town, and this one comes from a company with a rich history in studio microphone technology and design. Not surprisingly, its focus is on audio quality, but with a refreshing, healthy nod to design as well. That company, Blue, today introduced Mo-Fi, which it claims features the world’s first built-in “audiophile” amplifier in a pair of headphones.
Cambridge Audio is really good at one thing, and that’s speakers (and the accessories that go with). The way they go about crafting audio products, one might think it’s equal parts engineering and magic. You’ll always hear more coming out of Cambridge Audio speakers than what they look like they’re capable of. And the sound is nothing shy of impressive.
Although there’s been some backlash lately against music streaming services, that doesn’t mean they’re slowing down. Just last month, I finally made the leap to Spotify Premium and I’d be lying if I said my life isn’t monumentally better as a result. Finally, I can listen to “Dancing On My Own” by Robyn even when I’m underground. So, it’s no surprise that YouTube has decided to try its hand at a streaming music subscription service. Although it’s not yet official, new screen leaks suggest that YouTube will be realeasing YouTube Music Key to compete in the streaming game.
I’ve had my eye on V-Moda for a while. Not only have they received some recent awards, but the trend of melding fashion with wearable tech puts a bullseye right on the company. The thing is, V-Moda hasn’t been doing anything different since their humble beginnings. People have finally caught on to the notion that tech should look as good as it performs.
