Anker only recently moved into the competitive Bluetooth headphone space. Last year the company created a very successful Kickstarter for its Liberty+ headphones, and now those of us unlucky enough to miss out on that early bird pricing can get in on the action, too. Both the Liberty+ and Liberty are now discounted on Amazon via coupon codes, for a mere $79 and $119, respectively. Read More
Atari is, without a doubt, one of the most iconic companies in the video game industry. Pong was one of the first arcade games ever, the Atari 2600 computer was wildly popular in the late 70s and early 80s, and the 1985 Atari ST was fairly successful. However, the company began to falter in the 90s, and the poorly-sold Atari Jaguar was the last nail in the coffin. After that, Atari Corporation merged with hard drive manufacturer JTS Corp, who later sold the Atari brand to Hasbro in 1998.
Atari has since joined the ranks of Polaroid and RCA as a brand name passed around different companies, with the original Atari Inc. Read More
Sony has announced a total of eight new Bluetooth connectable audio devices at CES. Of these, three are extra bass portable speakers, three are sports headphones, and two are soundbars. Naturally, the Japanese electronics giant has a few tricks to show off for extra visibility. Simply hearing your music is clearly not enough in 2018. Read More
For every category of electronic accessory, you can be certain that Anker will make one and that Amazon will try to put Alexa into it. These two nearly inescapable industry forces were clearly destined to come together and make a car charger that you can talk to.

$250. That is what a pair of Bose's take on the truly wireless earbud will set you back, and you won't exactly look stylish for your decision. Like the original, cable-linked SoundSport Wireless, the newest wireless earbuds from Bose aren't lookers, and they're damn expensive. Here's the thing: they do the truly wireless thing very well, and they sound great doing it.
I loved the original SoundSport Wireless, but my one real gripe was the cable between the buds: it rubbed against my neck in a kind of annoying way, and I yearned for a true wireless take with a similar design. Read More
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
Portable speakers are great, but not all of them can handle tough environments. Maybe you want to listen to music in the shower, catch up on podcasts while you're biking home, or listen to the radio at the pool. For any of those situations, or anywhere else you would need a waterproof and durable speaker, ZeroLemon has you covered with its ToughSound portable Bluetooth speaker. Read More
As someone who recently switched to using wireless headphones, I have mostly positive things to say about the experience. The pair I use on a daily basis makes my commute a bit more stress-free, and I like that I can also take them to the gym because they're sweat-resistant. I got them at what I thought was a pretty sweet entry price – until I saw this deal for the AUKEY Latitude EP-B40 wireless earbuds, which can be had for a little more than $20. Read More
Most owners of OG Pixels can attest that Bluetooth on those devices is not the best. We've written a fair few articles about the various issues over the past year, but with the launch of the new Pixels we were hopeful that Google might have improved things somewhat. While Bluetooth performance so far does seem to be more consistent, we've just learned about one particularly annoying bug that Pixel 2 owners have uncovered.
According to the many posters on this Pixel User Community thread, when you connect Bluetooth headphones to a Pixel 2 or 2 XL and activate the Google Assistant, it makes a sound to indicate that it's listening but doesn't detect your voice. Read More
