Phiaton has always been a company the combined both form and function into an aesthetically pleasing package that is able to perform strongly from a technical standpoint as well. The Bridge headphones were announced alongside the handsome Moderna earbuds, but were released much later. They are no exception to the Phiaton design queues. (more…)
When Griffin initially released the WoodTone in-ear headphones, which aren’t too bad sounding, I never thought that they’d turn it into a series of headphones. I also thought that the wooden design would make for a really nice set of over-ear headphones. Griffin recently released the new over-ear WoodTones to answer both of these thoughts. They are priced at a reasonable 100 dollars and do give a good bang for your buck. (more…)
A growing company requires growing endeavors. MEElectronics is a growing company that aims to reach up higher with its new M-Duo. As the name suggest, there is something coupled about it.

When Marshall first entered the headphone business, it didn’t come with the bang that they wanted. Lately, though, they have stepped up their game.

I have tested the cable with both an iPhone 5 and iPad mini, and it works as described. LightLinez is ideal for small spaces and available for purchase through Kenburg Tech. (more…)

Smule, one of the most prevalent music entertainment app developers, recently released their newest creation “Guitar!” in which players strum and pluck their way through a library of tracks spanning Jason Mraz to Ed Sheeran. You play through the game slowly but surely collecting coins, hoping to unlock content such as more songs and guitars.
