You may have read the name Libratone a couple of times before on Android Police. The company specializes in minimalistic but superb audio products, like the One Click speaker that Jeff reviewed, and has recently been part of the Made for Google program with its Q Adapt in-ear (wired) and on-ear, the latter of which are even Google-certified with that Fast Pair capability.

With Christmas right around the corner, it's no secret that a lot of people will be hitting the gym in an attempt to make 2018 the year that they get back in shape (and more power to them). When working out, take it from me when I say that having a good pair of earphones or headphones will go a long way toward helping you reach your goal. Luckily, both Amazon and Best Buy are running a sale on Jaybird's X3 wireless earbuds. At $79.99, this is a good deal. Read More
I just bought these. If you're looking for wireless earbuds, go get them too. /post
Oh alright, you want more information, right? Plus I gotta type a few words to justify this being a full article. Sure, sure.
I've been looking for Bluetooth earbuds for the past month. I have the Plantronics BackBeat Go 2: I use it daily and love it. This is my second set: the first lasted me two years before the left earbud died and this one has been going for 2.5 years without a hitch. I like the form factor since I can remove the earbuds and leave them hanging around my neck, I also want something non-sealing because I often wear them in public. Read More
When it comes to Bluetooth earphones, you can either go high-end and pay a hundred or several hundreds of dollars for a set, or look for cheap almost no-name brands on Amazon and see if there's something that can do the job without emptying your wallet. The Anker Soundbuds Curve fall in the latter category, but they do at least have the privilege of carrying the Anker brand name with them, and that usually means good quality at a very decent price.
Based on the Curve's 4.2 average rating from more than 560 reviews, I'd say that holds true in this case. Read More
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. Read More
I think that I've made my opinion of Bluetooth audio accessories clear by now. However, in case you haven't heard it yet, here it is: I don't think highly of them. The convenience factor is often eclipsed by lackluster sound quality, battery life, or both. Until now, I never considered any of the pairs that I have used to be outright awful. Unfortunately, today is the day that I must amend that because Urbanear's Stadion represents the most disappointing pair of Bluetooth earbuds that I've ever had the misfortune of using. Read More
The Jaybird X2 Bluetooth earphones are a great piece of kit. I don't know this firsthand. Artem loves them, I know that. And when they drop below $130 dollars, well, Jeff considers that dang near impulse buy territory. The two of us have different gauges for how cheap a pair of earphones needs to be to qualify as an impulse buy, but in case you agree with Jeff, the Jaybird X2 has again dipped in price on Amazon.
