TechnologyTell Review: Plantronics Voyager Edge UC

Despite the abundance of quality earpieces, I’ll still see someone having a conversation with a huge phone or tablet up to their face. It’s still ridiculous, even if they may just be singing along to playing music. Everyone should own a good Bluetooth earpiece. They work better than the built in microphones and speakers of more »

Could audiophiles be the next consumer sucker target?

It’s no secret that those with deep passions will go through great lengths to pursue them. But sometimes having that ‘eye on the prize’ also gives you tunnel vision, making you less aware of anything else except reaching the goal. Unfortunately, this opens up opportunities for predatory marketing.

TechnologyTell Review: High Resolution Technologies dSp

While attending CES 2015, I made a point to visit as many audio-related booths as I could. While floating through the upper floors in the Venetian, I happened to pop into the suite for High Resolution Technologies. Why? Because they were playing some fun music loud enough to lure me in (unlike almost half of the other suites on those three floors).

CHIPS headphones max music for extreme outdoor adventure

If you take a moment to think about it, headphones meant for physical activity are still kind of limiting. Sure, most of them connect wirelessly via Bluetooth and some may even be sweat-proof too. But these ones are really meant for your basic, “tame” routines of jogging/running, cycling, or sometimes swimming.

TechnologyTell Review: Doppler Labs DUBS acoustic filters

I love music and I love it loud. There’s something about having speakers blast out tracks at high levels that amps the excitement. However, not everyone agrees. The kids and dogs easily consider loud music excessive to their hearing, which is why I play my stuff at moderate levels when at home.

BTunes upgrades corded headphones to Bluetooth 4.0 aptX

AmpliTube and iRig finally available for Android, musicians

Apple devices have long been a favorite for musicians looking to enhance, mix, or record music from instruments. The hardware and software technology has always been top-notch, delivering quality results in real-time. Attempting to do the same with an Android device has been little better than playing with a toy. That is, up until now with the latest from IK Multimedia.

TechnologyTell Review: V-Moda Faders VIP Tuned Metal Earplugs

Although I don’t get to see musicians live that often, I make it a point to go when I can. It’s an indulgence that everyone should do a few times a year, since music is so much more powerful and exciting that way. Aside from a potentially-packed venue, the only real drawback would be ringing in the ears due to lack of protection.
