Cavalier Maverick review: Nails everything but the bass

If you’re looking for a great-looking alternative to the Amazon Echo, there’s none better.

I’m a huge fan of portable Bluetooth speakers. As I’ve been reviewing them over the last two years, I’ve amassed a solid collection, and I’ve tried everything from the absolutely abysmal to the jaw-droppingly marvelous.

LG G7 ThinQ hands-on preview: All about that bass

I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

I’ve spent enough time now with the LG G7 — excuse me, the G7 ThinQ — that I’m positive it won’t change the fortunes of LG’s mobile division.

I’ve also spent enough time to know that that’s a shame. Because, see, the phone is quite good, excellent even, in the ways that count. And LG’s new focus on ABCD — that is, AI, battery, camera, and display — is the right move  [Read More…]

Simplicity sold me on my new favorite headphones and made me realize what I had been missing.

It’s easy to be distracted by features on headphones right now.

In my search for what should be considered table stakes for any good  [Read More…]

NYNE Bass review


Face it, there’s a ton of portable and wireless speaker options out there. And, with prices ranging from $ 40-$ 400 it’s easy to find something that fits your budget. But, as you’ve likely heard elsewhere or in other aspects of life, there’s something to be said about splurging just a bit. Conversely, sometimes you don’t have to spend more money to get great sound.  [Read More…]
