Phiaton BT 390 review: A competent, compact pair of Bluetooth headphones that sounds great

You all know how I feel about Bluetooth audio products by now, especially my opinions about the inverse relationship between portability/convenience and sound quality. It's true that most of my Bluetooth audio reviews here on AP have been negative, however, what I have today completely blew my expectations. I know, I know, I'm not supposed to judge anything before I actually get it and test it, but I'm jaded, so I was very surprised here.

Meet the Phiaton BT 390, an extremely competent pair of Bluetooth headphones that pack very good and balanced sound, and even amazing battery life, into a foldable, portable body.

[Deal Alert] Sony's excellent noise canceling MDR1000X Bluetooth headset is down to $248 ($152 off MSRP)

Sony is pulling a Lenovorola with its different Bluetooth headphones. The company confused us recently by announcing the WH-1000XM2 followed by the h.ear on 2 Wireless NC, but you don't need to worry about either of these, because this deal is on the slightly older MDR1000X. They've now dipped to $248 on Amazon, $50 less than the last time we told you about them.

If new headphones make the older generation cheaper, then we won't complain, because the MDR1000X are a really good pair. They're over-ear headphones with active noise cancelation, 20 hours of battery life, hi-res audio both in Bluetooth (LDAC) and wired modes, an ambient mode to hear your surroundings without interrupting your music or removing your headphones, NFC for easy pairing, and a nifty carry case.

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.

[Update: Just headphones for employees] Google-branded wireless headphones show up at the FCC

Well this is... unexpected. We've heard whispers of a new Google Home/Google WiFi combo, and even the next Pixel devices, but nothing in the realm of audio products. Out of nowhere, a set of headphones from Google have appeared in a new FCC filing.

[Deal Alert] LG's weird new Tone Studio headphones are already on sale for $200 at various retailers ($30 off)

LG's new Tone Studio headphones are a little awkward. They follow the same design as the company's well-loved neckband Bluetooth earphones, but they add a speaker in case you want to envelop yourself in music without actually stuffing something into your ear. I can understand the use case for those who are constantly mobile in a certain environment, say while they move from home to car to office or while they clean different rooms of the house, and who don't want to bother with connecting and disconnecting from multiple speakers and headsets. That doesn't make the idea any less awkward though.

The Tone Studios went on sale at the end of March for $229.99, but they're already down $30 to $199.99.

[Update OOS] Deal Alert: Samsung's truly wireless Bluetooth headphones, the Gear IconX on sale for just $79.99 at TechRabbit ($70 off)

We've been calling Bluetooth headphones, 'wireless headphones' for quite some time now. However, truly wireless headphones are a fairly new phenomena. This new generation of completely wire-free headphones are more liberating than ever, but come with a couple of trade-offs from more traditional Bluetooth earbuds. One is battery life, which tends to be shorter, and the other is price, which tends to be higher – but not today. Right now you can pick up a pair of Samsung's Gear IconX headphones for only $79.99 at TechRabbit, that's almost half off.
