Sbode Portable Bluetooth Speaker review: Open up a can of music anywhere

This not-quite-pocket-sized speaker packs quite a lot into its rotund, rubberized housing.

Bluetooth speakers are just about everywhere these days — and good thing, too, seeing as headphone jacks and aux cables seem to be fading away with each new generation of flagships — but outside of the traditional almost always-overpriced name brands, it can be hard for good speakers to stand out from the pack. This is especially true for Bluetooth speakers that are portable and  [Read More…]

How to use Alexa Cast with Amazon Music and Echo speakers

Now you can cast your tunes from Amazon Music to your Echo speakers!

Amazon’s Alexa Cast is a new feature built into the Amazon Music app that lets you cast music to your Echo speakers and control everything from your phone.

Electronauts is the VR music maker you didn’t know you wanted

The learning curve is steep, but so are the drops.

While there are a few different music games out there for the PlayStation VR, most of them are some kind of standard drumming machine trying to add an interesting VR twist. Electronauts, on the hand, achieves that twist. With striking visuals and a variety of beats to play with, this game – although I’m not sure if game is the right word – uses VR to create  [Read More…]

Google Assistant music controls are now everywhere, and it’s a geek’s dream come true

I had precision playback control once, and how I’ve longed to have it once again.

I was the person who always had her headphones snaked up her shirt. I was so attuned to the click wheel on my iPod video — and my iPod mini before that — that I could fast forward and rewind my music without even pulling it out of my pocket with almost frightening precision. I don’t miss much from my iTunes days  [Read More…]

Aukey Latitude wireless earbuds review: Wireless music on the cheap

With the lack of headphone jacks on so many smartphones today, it’s no wonder wireless earbuds are more popular than ever.

To answer the demand, many top companies like Google or B&O have released wireless earbuds, but unfortunately, these offerings aren’t really affordable. Google’s Pixel Buds, for example, will take you back with $ 129.99 (originally priced at $ 159.99).
