Review: MEElectronics Atlas

MEElectronics | On-Ear Headphone | $ 99.99

Banner1

With the new Atlas, the headphone MEElectronics dubs “the next headphone”, MEE incorporates a slew of technologies, old and new, into a pair of headphones.  The in-mold label (IML) printing methods and technology employed allow the headphones to standout in design while the multi-layering due to this technique makes them feel great.  Vented pads tune the sound and add comfort.  Speaking of sound, though, these really just sound great.  (more…)

Nowadays, we carry our phones with us everywhere. They tag along for the rides we take, our day to day life, and just about everywhere else we are. The majority of us here at iFans also live in a capitalistic society, driven by money. Additionally, we have our IDs, credit cards as well as other things. The CM4 Q Card Case attempts to merge these two together to turn your iPhone into your wallet.  (more…)

Review: Designed by M AeroSpace Bumper

Designed by M | Bumper Case | $ 59.99

A couple years back, Apple introduced a new form of cases, bumpers.  Originally designed for the 4/4S, the bumper case was a minimalistic design that surrounded the iPhone but didn’t cover up the design queues set by Sir Ive.  Designed by M decided to go out and make their own bumper case, this one made out of aluminum to match the design of the iPhone.  From an aesthetic standpoint, it’s a beautiful case.   (more…)

Review: Phiaton Chord MS 530

Phiaton | Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones | $ 349.00

Banner1

Phiaton has always been a company that has pushed noise canceling as a feature of its headphones.  They have also been one to show that they aren’t afraid to go the route of Bluetooth either.  This on-ear model does both; it’s a noise-canceling, Bluetooth headphone that is ironically called Chord.  In essence, it doesn’t need an actual chord.   (more…)

Review: Phiaton Fusion MS 430

Phiaton | On-Ear Headphones | $ 179.00

Banner1

Phiaton has always had a stunning aesthetic aspect when it came to headphone design.  Their carbon-fibered Fusion (MS 430) is no different.  The aesthetics take off while the linear, somewhat aggressive sound takes center stage.  With that said, these headphones not only look great, they sound it too.

Review: TechArmor EdgeProtect Bumper

TechArmor | Case | $ 7.95

With the release of the iPhone 4, Apple introduced a new type of case line that has really taken off.  The idea of a bumper case that leaves the front and back of your device intact has become somewhat of a popular idea allowing users to gain minimal protection while being able to show off the design of their iDevices.  With the iPhone 5/5s, this type of case has been replaced.  TechArmor offers a cheaper alternative that still offers quality with their EdgeProtect Bumper Case.   (more…)

RHA has always been a company I respected due to their philosophy, to provide good audio quality in an affordable package.  The MA-600i is their sub-100 dollar priced IEM which steps into an area that is swamped with IEMs.  Despite all the opposition, these little wonders do offer some great competition and hold their own.  Exactly how well do they hold their own?  Read on to find out…   (more…)

Review: V-Moda Vamp Verza

V-Moda | DAC/AMP | 598.00

Banner1

During the June of 2012, V-Moda had released a headphone DAC/AMP specifically designed for the iPhone at that time, the 4S.  The DAC/AMP was a good concept at the time as portables were becoming popular in the audio world due to the likes of Apple, Samsung, Google, etc.  However, the timing couldn’t have been more crippled because a few months later, the iPhone 5 was announced and released.  Since this 650 dollar AMP was only 4S compatible, it wouldn’t work with the new iPhone; essentially making it obsolete.  So how did V-Moda Remedy this problem?   (more…)
