Plantronics Voyager 6200 UC hands-on

Professionals in the office, especially those who are constantly chatting on the phone, are known to trot around with Bluetooth headsets that are typical for the occasion. Usually, they’re those gigantic, sometimes obnoxious looking, headsets with an extending boom microphone. With Plantronics’ latest offering, they’re taking the around-the-neck style and adding the professional touch to it.

Enter the Plantronics Voyager 6200 UC, which is undeniably different in the professional atmosphere of an office. Now, the beauty of going with this design, as opposed to the typical headset …

OnePlus 5T Sandstone White: hands-on

The OnePlus 5T is one of the best phones you can buy, a $500 phone with flagship-grade performance and nice extras like ultra fast face unlock feature and Dash Charge, a fast-charging technology that works its magic even when you are using your phone.
The OnePlus 5T, however, is only available in one color: a very good-looking “Midnight Black” with a matte look to it, but… it’s just one color option. These days, OnePlus offered a limited edition version of the 5T in a fancy new “Sandstone White”, a whimsical combination of a white back, …

JLab Epic Sport Wireless Earbuds hands-on

Exercising can be grueling, especially when you’re building up a sweat and constantly moving around. Not all headphones can endure the intensity that exercising brings to the table, but the JLab Epic Sport Wireless Earbuds may have what it takes to be the single pair of headphones you use for the occasion going forward. Some headphones just become loose as moisture and sweat builds up, however, these are looking to stay put.

We recently got to quickly check out this latest Bluetooth enabled pair of earbuds from JLab, the same company responsible for the Epic Air Wireless Headphones …

Audio-Technica ATH-ANC700BT QuietPoint hands-on

Audio-Technica has been in the audio for quite some time, known for its devoted fans who love its line of wired headphones. Even though they’ve had a solid handle in that area, wireless is a totally new beast for them, but one of its upcoming offerings is looking to make some noise for them. We stopped by the company’s booth at the CES showroom floor, to check out the Audio-Technica ATH-ANC700BT QuietPoint. 
Our first impressions are related to its design. On one hand, we love that it features a collapsible design that makes it easier to carry around …

Sennheiser CX 6.0BT wireless headphones hands-on

There were plenty of new Bluetooth headphones announced at CES, with the most glamorous offering long hours of listening of the truly wireless kind, costing upwards of $150. Enter Sennheiser, with their CX 6.0BT gear that is much less, and comes with the audio brand name recognition. 
Not truly cordless, but still Bluetooth-y, these new Sennheisers come with a lower, $100 price tag, than their completely untangled competitors unveiled at CES. True to the teen trends, the renowned audio gear maker has tuned the CX 6.0BT to provide not only its signature clean and …

Garmin Forerunner 645 Music hands-on

Say hello to Garmin’s first fitness device capable of storing music – the Garmin Forerunner 645 Music. With the ability to store about 500 songs, the Forerunner 645 takes a smart, albeit late step in the direction toward mainstream wearable success.

Garmin’s well-known in the serious running community as a reliable brand for GPS watches. But only recently has the company made meaningful strides towards accessing the more casual wearable/fitness enthusiasts. While watches like the touchscreen-equipped Vivoactive 3 offered a more appealing, sub-$300 price, with a stylish look …

Vuzix Blade and M300 hands-on

Back in June of 2017, Vuzix brought its industrial-oriented M300 AR glasses to consumers, launching for $1499, with a line of modular accessories sold separately. It was an intriguing, lightweight, and efficient AR device, which helped pave the way for this week’s unveiling of the more consumer-friendly and Amazon-Alexa-toting Vuzix Blade. Neither device requires tethering for power. We took a look at the M300 and Vuzix Blade, and tested out some of their AR capabilities.

M300
The Vuzix M300 takes a rather simple, yet effective approach to AR. Essentially, the M300 is mountable computer …

LG V30 in Raspberry Gold hands-on

As expected, the Raspberry Gold version of the LG V30 made its debut at the showroom floor during CES 2018, expanding upon the lineup’s existing set of dazzling colors. We spent a little bit of time checking it out at LG’s booth, leaving us just a bit jealous afterwards. 
Much like the other color options for the LG V30, this Raspberry Gold one shimmers in the light – emitting this tantalizing look as light bounces off its surface. It’s a refreshing change of color quite honestly, as rose gold has been traditionally the ‘gold’ choice amongst smartphones. …

Razer Project Linda hands-on

Razer had a new contraption to showcase at CES, and it plugs right into its newly-minted phone concept. Or, should we say, the Razer Phone plugs into the so-called Project Linda. It’s a laptop shell that utilizes the phone as a touchpad of sorts, docking it neatly below the full-blown keyboard. No, it won’t run Crysis, but you can play any Android game on the big, beautiful 13.3 QHD touch display, for that matter.

We played around with the combo at Razer’s CES booth, and have to say that it works as advertised, and looks almost identical to the renders, especially the glossy …
