iLuv Vibe Plus Dual Alarm Clock Review

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

I’ve been getting up at ludicrous tines in the morning lately, working long days, coming home to the chaos of a kitchen fitting and finally hitting the hay far later than is healthy. I tell you this so that you fully appreciate just how effective and persistent an alarm clock has to be to raise […]

SteelSeries Siberia V2 Headset Review

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

It’s very rare that a set of cans, or stonkin’ great headphones, will replace my beloved Roland RH300s for any length of time. But the Siberia V2 has done just that. Admittedly, the Rolands are wearing out somewhat from sheer excessive use, so I welcome another set to step in and hold the flame for […]

Clip and Talk Solar Powered Bluetooth Cat Kit

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

Solar power seems to be working its way into many simple, common devices. Some of the simplest are the best, with the SolarDAB being a good example. Radio lends itself well to this sort of power, and it seems that car kits do too. The Clip and Talk Solar Powered Bluetooth Car Kit is a […]

SmallTalk Mini Bluetooth Headset Review

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Bluetooth headsets are the one thing I would have thought that no sane individual would want any smaller. It’s not so much that a compact ear piece isn’t more practical, comfortable and convenient. But, rather, that something so small is also far more discrete than I would ever want a bluetooth headset to be. We’ve […]

Sony SRS DB500 2.1 Speakers Review

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

As much as they try to pretend otherwise with their Hi-Fi audio appearance the Sony SRS DB500 are PC speakers through and through or, at a pinch, a ridiculously over the top outlet for the tunes on your portable audio player. They’re great for gaming, but you will do them a better justice pumping out […]

Intempo Bluetooth Speaker Review

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

Stereo bluetooth headphones are all well and good when you want to get audio out of your phone for personal listening, but what about using it as a replacement for a kitchen radio, or a bit of living room easy listening? Unless you’ve got an iPhone, the chances of picking up a purpose built dock […]

NextBase Click 7 In-Car DVD Player

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

I was perusing Halfords a couple of days ago, admiring pink steering wheel covers and seat covers emblazoned with teddy bears in a thoroughly manly fashion, when the in-car DVD Player display caught my eye. Dominating over half of the display was the new NextBase Click & Go range. The range consists of a 7″ […]

Cygnett Groove Fusion Earphones Review

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

Before I start I should probably say that I’m not particularly a fan of earplug style earphones. I tend to find them somewhat intrusive, however I put this aside to write this review. First off. How do the Cygnett Groove Fusion ‘phones look? They’re pretty much identical to every other earplug style earphone out there, […]

Qstik EVOQ Bluetooth Headset Review

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

You can pick up a tolerably good Bluetooth headset right now for just £9.95 and not only make yourself look like a cyborg with the daringly shaped ear-piece but connect the supplied stereo earbuds and rock out to your music from an A2DP compatible phone. I’m referring to the Qstik EVOQ Bluetooth Headset which has […]

Sennheiser CX550 Style II In-Ear Earphones

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Review by Rob Farley The Sennheiser CX550 Style II earphones are your typical, in-ear, noise blocking affair. These noise blocking, sound producing earplugs are loved by as many as they are hated and their form factor is as close as you can get to the Marmite of ‘phones. Most of the “hate it” camp, however, […]
