V-Moda reveals the Forza Metallo Wireless neckband Bluetooth headphones Fri, 28 Apr 2017 21:00:36 +0000 vmodaV-Moda is well known for their collection of headphones as well as other audio products, and most of the time, these offerings tend to be on the high end side of things. It is the same this time around, with the Forza Metallo Wireless neckband Bluetooth headphones. Specially designed by and for modern audiophiles, the Forza Metallo Wireless comes across as a high-performance and ultra-sleek companion for anyone who has high demands for their audio accessories. Boasting of the newly developed 5.8mm dynamic micro Hi-Res driver, it will be accompanied by a futuristic sweat-resistant technology, patent-pending sport fins for hybrid sport performance and the world’s first jewel-grade 3D printing customization of in-ears.

Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO, beams proudly at the Forza Metallo, saying, “All other in-ear wireless headphones have a variety of form factors with show stopping compromises, imperfect ergonomics or useless gimmicks. They either look like unsightly massive ‘plastic space ring around the collars’, Frankenstein bolts that will not stay in your ears or separate earbuds that are quickly lost, have reception issues and need a dongle or case. Our first neckband Bluetooth headphone features a minimal design that can hide under a shirt collar, maximum battery life, enhanced antenna and unrivaled all-day ergonomics. With Forza Metallo Wireless we are unleashing audiophiles and professionals with ultimate ergonomics via our unique TrapLock™ titanium cable refined to every nanometer from countless anatomical tests conducted over years.”

While it sports a minimal design, it is still a high performance piece of hardware, where you will be able to enjoy balanced vibrant bass, vivid mids and natural stress-free highs surrounded by a vast 3D soundstage. The Hi-Res drivers themselves are joined by a CNC forged aircraft-grade metal housing, specially meant to reveal music like instrument engineers intended. It even has the Qualcomm aptX audio codec that helps deliver peak audio, allowing consumers to enjoy CD quality wireless audio playback. Expect the Forza Metallo Wireless to arrive in shades of Gunmetal Black and White Silver for $170 each.

Como Audio Solo Wireless Speaker keeps all your music at the ready Thu, 09 Mar 2017 18:30:59 +0000 Como Audio Solo

We have several different sources from which we get our music. There’s Internet radio, the actual radio, music downloaded on our phones, and computers. When you’re at home, you have access to all of these options, but the manner in which you listen to them is normally stuck to specific devices. We want our world to be as connected as possible, so it would make sense that we would want a speaker system that will let us access whichever option we want, whenever we want.

The Como Audio Solo Speaker could be classified as a radio, but it is far more than that. This is a smart speaker that has a wooden case that’s nearly a half-inch thick with a 3/4” soft dome tweeter and a custom 3” long-throw, 4-layer voice coil woofer with an oversize magnet. There is also a 2.8” TFT color display so you can always see the album art, artist, and song information regardless of what channel you’re listening through.

There are two versions of this speaker, with this $299 version being the smaller of the two. The Duetto does the same, but more of it, and has a $399 price tag. This is available in piano black, white, hickory/black, or walnut/black, and yes, the color does affect the price. If you’re feeling saucy, you can buy multiples and sync them so that you can have the same music playing all over your house during parties.

The Brydge 7.9 Bluetooth Keyboard for iPad mini keeps you busy Wed, 08 Mar 2017 18:30:11 +0000  

It takes a multi-tasker to be successful nowadays. There isn’t very much free time to go around anymore when you’re working three jobs to make ends meet, and time off becomes a chance to get ahead on work rather than constantly playing the game of catchup. This means our leisure gadgets like tablets end up being a larger work hub than our phones, which in turn makes us want to get  accessories to make it easier to work efficiently when we’re on the move.

While an iPad mini is great for portability, it’s nice to type on an actual keyboard, and there are million Bluetooth options available on the market. If you prefer to have all of your gear match aesthetically or perfectly, then you’ll love the Brydge 7.9 Keyboard. This is a backlit aluminum keyboard that will help keep your productivity high wherever you go, even in low or no light situations. There’s also a strong hinge so you can put your viewing angle from 0-180 degrees.

This only weighs 11 ounces, and will meet up perfectly with your iPad mini 4, so you don’t need to remove it or stash it separately. There are three levels for the backlighting, and the aluminum body comes in color options of gold, silver, or grey. They don’t come cheap at $99.99, but that’s somewhat expected since it’s a perfect fit both size and style-wise.
