AfterShokz Trekz Titanium Review

AfterShokz Trekz Titanium Review

Single Reviews
AfterShokz Trekz Titanium are the first sports bone conduction headphones made by AfterShokz. Compared to some previous AfterShokz bone conduction headphones, these are much sturdier and more comfortable. There is also an upgraded version of Trekz Titanium called Trekz Air, which is even lighter and more comfortable, but also significantly pricier. To be completely honest, we are not convinced that the number of improvements justifies such a high price of Trekz Air. In our opinion, Trekz Titanium is a smarter choice. AfterShokz is the only recognizable brand when it comes to bone conduction headphones. If you do a little research on your own, you will see that all the other bone conduction headphones have some odd names that you have never heard of. In a way, AfterShokz is the only trus...

HiFiMan HE-400i Review

Single Reviews
HiFiMan HE-400i are planar magnetic headphones designed for critical or casual listening. Compared to other planar magnetic headphones on the market, these can be considered quite affordable, but they are most definitely not cheap. Still, if you want to experience planar magnetic technology and you are not prepared to splash more than $1000 on some high-end headphones, HiFiMan HE-400i planar magnetic headphones are a great entry-level option. They are not the cheapest choice but they offer great performance and great sound quality for the price. There are only a few recognizable names on the planar magnetic headphone market. The most reputable ones are Oppo, AUDEZE, and of course, HiFiMan. The introduction of planar magnetic drivers started the revolution on the headphone market and bro...
What is High-Resolution Audio?

What is High-Resolution Audio?

Blog
Technological progress has brought new high-resolution video formats such as 4K into our lives, so there should be no reason why we wouldn’t enjoy high-resolution audio. However, it is not all so simple and this topic has been rising different kinds of discussions ever since it appeared. The problem with modern audio files is their size. An original soundtrack that is recorded in a professional music studio is made in the highest possible and available resolution but the recording is extremely large, which makes it impossible for storing on small portable devices with limited memory that we are using every day. In spite of the fact that our devices even use external memory, which is getting larger and larger every day, it is still impossible to store many high-resolution files on a sing
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 3 Review

Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 3 Review

Single Reviews
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 3 is the third out of five versions of a highly appreciated Onyx Studio line by Harman Kardon. Compared to the version 2, this one has a new Bluetooth version (Onyx Studio 2 had Bluetooth 3.0 while Onyx Studio 3 has Bluetooth 4.1) and all the other improvements are closely related to capabilities of Bluetooth 4.1 (daisy chaining and multi-host features). The regular price of this speaker is $450 but you can often find it on Amazon for $200 or less. Since you can also find Onyx Studio 4 and Onyx Studio 5 for less than $200, you should probably check out those speakers, too. The difference between the third and fourth version is minimal (upgraded battery), while the fifth version is the first one with a modified shape and a few more improvements. Onyx Studio 3, j...

Oppo PM-3 Review

They have decided to discontinue the production of Blu-ray players and hi-fi equipment but they are still one of the big players ...

Audio equipment has an important place in our lives. This can be easily proven if you look at the offer at a local audio store and the fact that every one of us has at least one speaker at home, at work, in a car, etc. Basically, we are no longer satisfied by playing the music directly from our phones or players but we connect them to different kinds of wired or wireless speakers because they offer better performance. This rule can also be applied to TVs. We all know that regular TV speakers, even the most expensive ones, aren’t as good as average home speakers, especially soundbars or home theater speaker systems. This is the most important reason why people decide to spend their money on expensive audio systems, especially if they are moving to a bigger apartment or house and their sm
Devialet Gold Phantom Wireless Speaker Review

Devialet Gold Phantom Wireless Speaker Review

Single Reviews
Devialet Gold Phantom is the third wireless speaker from a highly praised line of Phantom speakers by Devialet. The first two speakers, white and silver Phantom, got many positive reviews and many compliments. The main difference between the three speakers is the power rating. The first one had the peak output power of 1200W and max SPL of 101dB, while the silver Phantom had an amazing 3,000W of peak output power and 105dB max SPL. Silver Phantom was (and still is) an impressive speaker, but Devialet went one step further and released the third upgraded version called Devialet Gold Phantom. This one has the peak output power of 4,500W and max SPL of 108dB. It’s hard to believe these numbers, but they are true. Devialet is a very young company (founded in 2007), but they have already ma

OontZ Angle 3XL Ultra Review

Single Reviews
OontZ Angle 3XL Ultra is the upgraded version of the OontZ Angle 3XL. This is the largest speaker from the very popular and very affordable OontZ Angle series of speakers made by Cambridge SoundWorks. You have probably heard of the OontZ Angle speakers before and you would be able to recognize one since they all have that unique triangular design. OontZ Angle 3XL Ultra features the same design but it still stands out because of the size and especially because of its features and performance. This large speaker is, in many ways, better than any other OontZ Angle speaker. The build quality is significantly improved - the edges are made of brushed aluminum and some parts are also reinforced with rubber which makes it suitable for outdoor use. The controls are more intuitive, easier to u...
