TrackR is excited with this year’s CES — how about you? After all, if this were not the case, they would not have worked to unveil not just one, but a couple of new form factors over at CES 2017. The “stars” in the equation would be the TrackR pixel and TrackR wallet 2.0, where they have joined the rest of the new TrackR family, which would make it easier than ever before to maintain your portfolio of personal items — without breaking the bank, to boot.

The TrackR pixel will arrive in not just a handful, but a whopping nine fashionable colors and starts at a lower price point. This would then pave open the road for consumers to keep track of all of their items, be it at home or while they are on the move. The TrackR pixel is able to quickly locate items in a similar way to TrackR bravo, and it has a greater advantage in the fact that it is not only smaller, but also lighter, and boasts of an LED light which can turn on when it is activated in order to make finding items in the dark all the easier. Measuring a mere 26mm in diameter and 5mm in thickness, this makes it one of the smallest available item trackers on the market.

As for the TrackR wallet 2.0, this is one of the thinnest trackers on the market that measures a mere 2mm in thickness — which should not be thicker than a pair of credit cards. It is even shaped to look like that of a credit card, making use of new carbon fiber technology in order to achieve this remarkable thinness at the same time maintain all of the functionality of the TrackR bravo — such as the replaceable CR2016 batteries.

The TrackR pixel can be pre-ordered for $24.99 with shipping set to commence in Spring 2017, while the pre-order for the TrackR wallet 2.0 stands at $29.99, shipping in late Spring 2017.

LG PJ9 is a levitating speaker that looks out of this world http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20161229/lg-pj9-levitating-speaker-world/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20161229/lg-pj9-levitating-speaker-world/#comments Thu, 29 Dec 2016 12:00:44 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=258130 lg-pj9When it comes to portable or wireless speakers, most of us would look for the model that is hardy in nature, being able to take just about anything and everything that you throw in its direction. Well, LG has a slightly different route this time around with the LG PJ9, where this wireless speaker is certainly out of the ordinary in terms of its design. After all, most of the portable speakers that are in the market require you to bring them around with you, or even hook them up to a carabiner. For those who use it at home, you leave it on the table. Not so with the LG PJ9 that is all set to debut at CES 2017 — this particular speaker will levitate, as though by magic — now how about that for impressive?

The LG PJ9 is certainly a mesmerizing wireless speaker in its own right, and the magic will happen when you place it over the accompanying Levitation Station. It has the ability to deliver high-quality audio, and at the same time offer a lasting impression thanks to its eye-catching design. It also has a looks that will certainly turn heads whenever anyone lays their eyes on it. It does not matter whether the LG PJ9 is used to play music, podcasts or different kinds of audio content, it will be able to do all of that seamlessly while looking fantastic — even in the outdoors.

Making use of powerful electromagnets that is included deep inside the Levitation Station, the PJ9 will be able to achieve a stunning visual effect of floating in mid-air, without the need for any kind of wire to hold it in place. Right smack in the middle is a 360-degree omnidirectional speaker that has a turbine blade-inspired design, delivering deep bass thanks to the subwoofer that is embedded within the Levitation Station. The LG PJ9 itself will also feature Dual Passive Radiator technology that can reproduce flush mid-range tones as well as crisp highs for enhanced sound quality. No word on pricing yet as at press time, but we expect that small issue to resolve itself when it is officially announced at CES 2017.

In other words, the seemingly inexhaustible list of possibilities can be experienced by everyone if the situation and time are correct. Audiofly has introduced a brand new AF250 Bluetooth headphones, which also happens to be the company’s first over at the recently concluded CES 2016 in Las Vegas. It is rather difficult to believe at first that this is the first Bluetooth headphones from Audiofly, especially since they are innovators of award-winning, audiophile-grade in-ear monitors and earphones.

Audiofly’s AF250, being the company’s first Bluetooth headphone, will be no slouch in terms of performance as it offers breakthrough performance in the already crowded market of wireless headphones, thanks to its superior sound, wireless convenience, maximum comfort and outstanding playback time. The Audiofly AF250 has been engineered using Audiofly’s proprietary soundstage, which is touted to offer the most superb sonic response found in a wireless headphone. It will be similar to other Audiofly products, as the AF250 has been designed to authentically reproduce music, and this is achieved via its 40mm drivers. Wireless listening is perfected through Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity, where the AF250 boasts of aptX streaming capabilities that will do its bit to improve the quality of Bluetooth audio as well.

It does not all stop at high-fidelity sound performance, as the AF250 will also boast of an industry leading, breakthrough playback time of up to 25 hours after a full charge, and this makes it twice as long as competing Bluetooth headphones. This playback time will ensure that the AF250 is perfect when it comes to long flights or commuters who desire the convenience of not having to charge their wireless cans each time they arrive home in the evening. There is also an intuitive built-in swipe interface that is located on the ear cup that will enable users to answer calls, adjust volume and switch songs with the touch of a finger. Made using a polycarbonate body and alloy arms for a lightweight feel, it will come with a self-adjusting headband and memory foam ear cups to offer ultimate comfort, so that users can listen in for extended periods of time. The asking price of the Audiofly AF250 stands at $349.99 a pop as it arrives later this fall.

While I understand that lighting does require a certain degree of energy savings, how smart can a bulb get apart from being able to be remotely controlled from afar via an app? Well, it seems that ilumi is back this time around after their outing last year, where the company has taken CES 2016 as the platform to reveal the power of outdoor and indoor lighting via ilumi’s very own BR30 Outdoor.

ilumi would want one to experience better living via better lighting with the BR30 Outdoor as well as ilumi’s collection of connected smartbulbs. A clear market leader in connected and smart lighting products, ilumi is certainly stoked to see its BR30 Outdoor bring the wonder of connected bulbs to the outdoors.

Braven reveals BRV-Bank Pro LE modular backup battery that is rugged http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20160114/braven-reveals-brvbank-pro-le-modular-backup-battery-rugged/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20160114/braven-reveals-brvbank-pro-le-modular-backup-battery-rugged/#comments Thu, 14 Jan 2016 12:00:38 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=237641 BRV-PRO-BANK-LE_StackedWhen we mention the name Braven, most of the time folks would think of some sort of portable speaker or that sort. In fact, things could not not be any different from that, as Braven does far more than just portable or outdoor speakers. Case in point, this particular modular backup battery that will certainly come in handy whenever your devices are in a tight spot and need some sort of recharging, where it will be known as the Braven BRV-Bank Pro LE, touted to be no ordinary modular backup battery, but rather, the first ultra rugged model of its kind in the world that will boast of an ecosystem of accessories that has been specially designed in order to adapt to even the most extreme outdoor environments.

If you thought that Braven’s well known BRV-Bank was already too manly for your tastes, the original Bluetooth Smart portable outdoor backup battery would certainly be unable to hold a candle to the BRV-Bank Pro LE here, as the latter is now capable of surviving full submersion thanks to its IPX7 waterproof rating, and the inclusion of a built-in 300-lumen LED flashlight, not to mention having it protected by an aircraft-grade aluminum housing for extra versatility and durability.

Apart from that, the BRV-Bank Pro LE will also play nice with all accessories from the BRV-PRO modular rugged-speaker, where among them include the solar charging panel, multi-tool, GoPro compatible action mount, and stacking plate, and all of these will enable users to stack multiple BRV-Bank Pro LE batteries on top of each other for even more power as you can see in the image above.

Being Bluetooth SMART enabled just like its predecessor, it can be remotely controlled through Braven’s proprietary app, so that users can locate the battery bank, monitor its power levels, turn each charging port on or off, and activate the “Bear” and “Find Me” modes. “Bear Mode” which turns on the smartphone’s motion sensor, to send signals to the bank to sound an alarm and trigger the flashlight when your phone is moved, while the “Find Me” mode activates the universal distress signal by sending a visual Morse code for “S.O.S.” using the flashlight.

Audiofly expands in-ear monitor range http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20160113/audiofly-expands-inear-monitor-range/ http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20160113/audiofly-expands-inear-monitor-range/#comments Wed, 13 Jan 2016 12:00:43 +0000 http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/?p=237621 audioflyThe recently concluded CES saw a little bit of something (and then some) from various bodies and companies for everyone, and Audiofly too, took the opportunity to ensure that they had a couple of additions to the in-ear monitor family with the introduction of the AF1120 as well as the AF100. The Audiofly AF1120 happened to be specially designed for rockstars as well as advanced musicians, whereas the AF100 was designed to target novice musicians who are on the lookout for a high-quality, affordable in-ear monitor.

One ought to bear in mind that this particular brand was developed by musicians who live to offer universal products which are able to fit the diverse and versatile quality and budget needs of musicians. In fact, their collection of customers happen to be rather wide-ranging, from X-Factor Australia contestants all the way to musicians across the world who want nothing more than an unmatched experience that empowers musicians to create and play impressive music.

The AF1120 holds the distinction of being Audiofly’s most powerful in-ear monitor to date, where it would be able to break down sonic barriers, as it houses a sextet of balanced armature drivers, which is something that is normally found only in custom headphones, crammed into a universal in-ear monitor form factor. You will notice half a dozen highly tuned balanced armature drivers in a dual low, mid and high configuration stashed within, where the 3-way crossover creates a stunning sense of space and clarity.

You will also realize that the AF1120 comes packaged with nine pairs of replacement tips: three of each single flange, tri-flange silicon and Comply. It isn’t available so soon though, as it will be out only in the third quarter of the year for $799.99 a pop. It certainly is not an expensive price to pay for such a high quality product.
