Optoma NuForce BE2 review: The best Bluetooth earphones in this price range

I am very cynical about Bluetooth audio these days. Even if the sound is good, the battery life sucks, the buds themselves aren't comfortable, and so on. However, I think I finally found a product that actually meets a lot of the criteria that make a good pair of Bluetooth earphones. Optoma's NuForce BE2 is made for athletes; it packs an IPX5 rating, decent sound, and a nice 10-hour battery life span all for $50.

Fitbit announces its first smartwatch, the Ionic, along with new wireless earbuds and a smart scale

Back in December of last year, Fitbit paid $40 million for Pebble. Considering Pebble's entire future product lineup was cancelled as a result of the buyout, many hoped that Fitbit would at least offer a similar product in the future. The company's new smartwatch is finally here - the Ionic - as well as two other new fitness products.

JLab Epic2 Bluetooth earbuds review: Rugged and long-lasting - just hope they fit in your ears

I've been on something of a hunt for a good set of Bluetooth earbuds lately. While my small collection of wired headphones has served me well at the gym, the airport, and on public transport, Bluetooth headphones offer a key advantage in their lack of a big, tangle-prone cable getting in the way of things. They also increasingly are more practical, as more and more smartphones seem to be phasing out the 3.5mm headphone jack (a move which I will continue to argue is dumb and bad).

The JLab Epic2 earbuds may not come from a brand you're familiar with, but these earbuds have received their fair share of critical praise in a space that is becoming increasingly crowded and competitive.

Zolo Liberty+ by Anker blasts through its Kickstarter goal

The main reason headphone jacks remain a staple of most phones is because they work. There's no pairing and re-paring, or worrying about how much longer the batteries in your earbuds will last. Anker's new "apprentice brand," Zolo, is trying to make Bluetooth earbuds without any compromises. The Kickstarter for Zolo's Liberty+ earbuds was revealed yesterday, and it has already passed its funding goal ten times over.

[Update: Groupon] Deal Alert: Bragi's truly wireless earbuds, The Dash, are $100 on Woot for a refurbished pair ($200 off)

The completely wireless earbud trend started several years ago, long before Apple's Airpods, and Bragi was one of the companies at the forefront of the technology. After the inevitable delays that plague every Kickstarter product, Bragi managed to ship The Dash and actually deliver on its promise. In my review of the earbuds, I found the technology a little magical, the NFMI transmission between the two earbuds more reliable than Bluetooth, the design completely freeing, and the basic features well done.

[Deal Alert] Get an LG Tone Pro Bluetooth headset for $25, refurbished for $20 ($50/$45 off)

While not the prettiest, "neckbuds" are quite useful as far as Bluetooth headsets go. I have only come across a few activities where my LG Tone Ultras are more work than they're worth (*ahem* bench pressing). Consequently, I have worn mine to death, so this deal is right up my alley. Over on DailySteals, you pick up some LG Tone Pros (model number HBS-770) for $25 brand new, or save $5 on some refurbished ones. These normally go for $70, so this deal is insanely good.

[Deal Alert] Jaybird X2 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds Going For As Low As $113 On Amazon

There are earbuds, and then there are earbuds. I'm not sure what I mean by that, but I do know Jaybird's X2 wireless Bluetooth earbuds are solidly in the latter category. They may cost as much as a budget phone, but they provide your ears with the kind of luxury treatment not commonly experienced by mortal man.

You're going to pay three digits for this product. The question is, how close can you get back to two?

Leak: Samsung Gear Fit 2 Fitness Bracelet And IconX Wireless Earbuds

Remember the Gear Fit? More than two years ago, everyone was excited to check it out because it was the first fitness tracker to feature a curved display that was supposed to hug your wrist and not look completely weird on it. The hype only lasted a couple of months as Samsung released wearable upon wearable dragging the Gear Fit into oblivion by sheer intra-brand competition. It seems that the concept wasn't completely abandoned though as Samsung is gearing up (oh snap!) to release a second generation of the product.

According to Evan Blass (aka Evleaks), the Gear Fit 2 should be more curved and thus more ergonomic to wear, and it'll also have a GPS chipset to allow for more data tracking while running or biking for example.
