TechnologyTell Review: 808 NRGGLO Speaker

There’s something to be said for being able to take a party where ever you go–particularly with summer coming on in earnest–and parties tend to need certain basic things. Music is one of these. A killer light show, meanwhile, is less useful but still welcome. 808 sent out an NRGGLO speaker for us to review, more »

TechnologyTell Review: ARCHT One Wireless Audio System

Wren V5US speaker does it all wirelessly with Air-Play, Play-Fi, and aptX

We’re all taught to believe in the power of choice, despite the fact that it doesn’t always make our lives easier. If you’re at a water park and have to decide which slide to go on next – that’s a good choice situation. But if two of your most favorite bands are having separate concerts on the same night and you can pick only one to go see – that’s going to require some hard thinking!

New HP devices to feature premium Bang & Olufsen sound

When the topic of “quality audio” is brought up, it’s very unlikely that anyone mentions laptop speakers in the discussion. Sure, there may be some exceptions to that rule, but I can’t remember the last time someone got excited to jam tunes for me from their laptop. The teeny, tinny speakers with the most basic more »

This needs to happen now: Lyric IoT speaker

I’m a little bummed out that I missed my chance to see this Lyric speaker in action while at SXSW 2015. Ah, if only I had an additional half a day more. I’ll cross my fingers the company will showcase this product at next year’s CES 2016. Now I’ve seen and listened to my fair more »


TechnologyTell Review: Marshall Woburn speaker

As awesome as portable audio can be, it doesn’t compare to the power of a fuller-sized speaker. Anything that fits in a backpack isn’t going to wash your body over with vibrations and melodies. Sometimes you really need to get that fix, even at the risk of a having a neighbor calling in a noise more »

Totally wireless, Flicks delivers home audio, video anywhere

If you’ve ever used a projector for entertainment purposes, you probably know how terrible the built-in speakers are. I keep a compact speaker alongside my projector, since the difference in audio is like night and day. But that’s just for quick/mobile convenience. If I’m setting up the projector for plush movie-viewing, I’m reaching for the more »

TechnologyTell Review: Definitive Technology W9 speaker

So I just finished listening to and reviewing the Definitive Technology W7 speaker. Why stop there, right?? At a little more than two times the size of the W7, the W9 delivers some serious decibels at the cost of size and weight. But considering the huge sound output, it’s still an easily-moved speaker. Design & more »

TechnologyTell Review: Definitive Technology W7 speaker

It’s no secret that I have a soft spot for products that deliver bigger bang for the buck. There’s just something about having a device or gadget perform more than what one might expect. Like that cat that attacked a street dog to save a boy. Or when Jennifer Lawrence creeped on Taylor Swift last more »

What if your bathroom’s ventilation fan had Bluetooth speakers?

There is seemingly no limit on digital innovation for the home. I mean, you know that “dumb” ventilation fan in your bathroom? Well, that’s your father’s ventilation fan. The cool kidz are moving on to ventilation fans with Bluetooth speakers built-in.

Acoustic Research adds refined outdoor audio at CES 2015

When it comes to roaming the vast expanses of carpet and concrete for CES 2015, there is almost no shortage of speakers. Like, seriously. Although it’s hard for me to say if there are more this year, compared to CES 2014, I can vouch for seeing an uptake in style and innovation. One theme I’ve more »
