The Vortex 250 is the Lamborghini of racing drones

IMG_2650 Having spent a good deal of time flying UAVs like DJI’s Inspire 1 and Phantom 4, I like to consider myself experienced with drones. So when I came across Horizon Hobby’s Vortex 250 Pro racing drone, I didn’t think twice that it was labeled for “the experienced pilot”. I thought I’d take off, hover around my house, maybe snap some photos or videos. Boy was… Read More

What headphones will Apple bundle w/ iPhone 7? Wireless AirPods? Lightning EarPods? Beats?

A big question up in the air for iPhone 7 is what Apple will do with its bundled headphones. If this is the first year Apple is to remove the headphone jack from the device as rumored, that means one of a few things for the bundled EarPods that usually come with its iPhones…

Review: Aukey EP-B20 Bluetooth Headset – inexpensive, but worth it?

If you’re looking for a pair of inexpensive wireless earbuds for workouts, then Aukey’s EP-B20 Bluetooth Headset is worth a look. These aren’t the most prestigious earbuds that you can pick up, but they sound decent, feel great in ear, and come with a reasonable $27.99 price. more…

Review: Definitive W7 + Play-Fi, hands on with an AirPlay competitor for home wireless music

I love the concept of streaming music around the home. There are a lot of great wireless Bluetooth speakers for wireless music on the move, but it’s still unclear what to choose for a static home environment. Apple’s answer is AirPlay, but it has flaws: no multi-room support from iOS devices, limited adoption by speaker manufacturers, and spotty reliability at best.

I’ve been trying an AirPlay alternative, called Play-Fi, which is a competing industry technology for home Wi-Fi music streaming from DTS. Specifically, I tested the Definitive W7 wireless speaker which integrates Play-Fi. Read on for my review  ….

Review: Apple’s Bluetooth keyboard becomes full size again w/ Satechi’s wireless aluminum keypad

Satechi’s new Aluminum Wireless Keypad is the numeric keypad add-on Apple doesn’t make for its own wireless keyboard. Apple has a truly full-sized keyboard with the number/keypad option, but it’s only available as a wired keyboard. Its wireless Bluetooth keyboard, however, which it bundles with its Mac desktops and also sells separately, is shorter and doesn’t come with the old number pad.

That’s probably because the majority of users probably don’t miss it with the top number row suffice for occasional number input, so it’s understandable why Apple doesn’t pay much attention to it. But I personally like and miss the speed of using a keypad for quick commands in pro apps like Logic and punching in numbers in spreadsheets (it’s tax time…), so I’ve been testing Satechi’s new Aluminum Wireless Keypad that recently arrived.

Review: Master & Dynamic’s MW60 makes wireless headphones look cool again

L1120293 Master & Dynamic is known in the audiophile space as the “newbies” — but they’ve made a name for themselves. The headphones seen here are the company’s latest offering, but also their first Bluetooth pair. The fanfare has been resolute: it’s been continuously sold out since its launch earlier this year. But are they just a fad, or quality product? Read More

Bluetooth Devices Will Link to the Internet Without Your Presence

A lot of devices rely solely on Bluetooth for connectivity, but they always require another device to provide them with a link to the internet. That often means you need to be right there with it—but not for much longer, because the low-power standard is getting its own gateway to the internet.

Poll: Do you want a thinner iPhone 7 at the expense of the 3.5mm headphone jack?

iPhone-7-Lightning

If all the recent reports turn out to be true, it looks like Apple might actually ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack for the next-generation iPhone later this year. It’s been a long-time coming, not just since Apple started preparing for the transition with audio over Lightning for headphone makers a couple years back, but also since wireless Bluetooth headphones have become good enough in recent years to replace wired solutions that rely on the 3.5mm jack we’ve used for the last century or so.

Apple is no stranger to being first to ditch old technologies while ushering in the new (think floppy drive, optical drives, and everything on the new 12-inch MacBook, as a few examples), but how do you feel about this particular transition? 

Removing the headphone jack is thought to allow for an overall thinner profile for the device, but it’s unclear exactly how Apple plans on presenting the change that will inevitably be a big topic of conversation if an iPhone without a headphone jack ultimately launches. In fact, Apple fans are already voicing their concern with a new petition gathering over 200,000 signatures from those against Apple’s reported plans.

It’s likely Apple will have a few partners showing off some slick new Lightning/Bluetooth headphones if it does introduce an iPhone without a headphone jack. It’s already been working with partners over the last year through its MFi program and adding products to its retail channels. We also reported this week that Apple is developing revamped, cord-free Beats with a charging case, and Apple will likely bundle some new Bluetooth and/or Lightning EarPods (or AirPods) to get you started.

But, really, will a thinner iPhone 7 be worth having to upgrade your headphones or buy an adapter to use over Lightning?
