Headphone Review: ThinkSound MS-01

[IMG]Last summer, I did an exciting battle between 5 pairs of wooden headphones. The ThinkSound TS02 came out the victor of that grand battle. Since then, ThinkSound hasn’t been asleep, hibernating gracefully in the background. Instead, they decided to release a new flagship IEM in their new monitoring series that they dubbed the MS-01. The MS-01 takes many of the problems I found with the TS02 and gives a good fix to them.  Read on for the full review: (more…)

Application Review: Groove 2

[IMG]

Apple’s default music player is a great stock player, especially comparing it to other stock music players; Apple’s seems a little further ahead of the others. Although it’s a great music player, it still isn’t the best as it doesn’t intuitively take advantage of many gestures, and quick access features. Although Groove isn’t an exact solution to the stock iPod or Music app, it does offer some beautiful shuffling features.  Read on for the full review: (more…)

Application Review: Byword

[IMG]

iOS features a basic app, offering basic functionality, that had a matte yellow icon. We all know this app, and it has changed very little over the past half-decade. With 5 years worth of upgrades, and only seeing an additions of font selection and searching capabilities, it becomes well apparent that Notes will not become the notes app we all dream of. Byword is a competitor against the notes app offering a stress-free writing environment that is simple to the touch and offering a wide array of features… (more…)

Headphone Review: Aurisonics ASG-1

[IMG]

The crowd is screaming, chanting, cheering for the performance to start. As the musicians take their steps onto the stage, they each have one in. With many manufacturers to choose from, customs are becoming more and more common. Aurisonics, designed the ASG-1 to originally be a demo product. As more artists started asking for the demo product to be put into production, it became more than just a demo. Although its intention was for professional use, it still works well for personal use as well.  Read on for the full review: (more…)

Application Review: Mass Effect: Infiltrator

[IMG]

Almost 3 years ago, Electronic Arts published the first installment of Mass Effect for the iOS platform. It was devastating to quickly find that, although it did help players in the main console game, it was 2D and really didn’t live up as well as it should have. BioWare, the developers behind Mass Effect, came back in the year 2012 to release the first, proper, 3D version of Mass Effect that users didn’t even know they fathomed for. This game does deliver well in the gameplay, but the replay can be a bit crippled.  Read on for the full review… (more…)

Application Review: Cut the Buttons

[IMG]

When it comes to iOS, one of the ways to make a big hit is to make an arcade game that is essentially never ending. The sheer addictiveness of the game itself is enough to push it to the number one position. Many try to hit this mark, many fail, some succeed, others fall somewhere in between. Cut the Buttons may sound like a knock-off of Cut the Rope, but its gameplay differs greatly. Although a great concept, it doesn’t entirely work well on the iPod and iPhone which puts it somewhere in between.  Read on for the full review:  (more…)

Headphone Review: AblePlanet SI1050

[IMG]

Walking away from the active noise cancelling technologies, AblePlanet goes out to produce a product that not too many companies have endeavored to do. Dual-Balanced-Armature IEMs are well known, and used a lot. Dual Dynamics, on the other hand, is a different story. AblePlanet comes out with the SI1050 to create a competitive dual-dynamic made to fight in the 200 dollar range, does it succeed or does it crumble to its upon itself?  Read on the for the full review: (more…)

Application Review: Clear

[IMG]

All dumbphones have one. All smartphones have one. All iDevices lacked one until iOS 5. The use of a simple tasks list has always been overlooked. Clear aims to bring the simplicity of a task list and add the natural feel of iOS gestures to make this one of the best apps on the app store.  Read on for the full review… (more…)
