Altec Lansing ALP-XP800 Xpedition 8 is one of the best large outdoor Bluetooth speakers with lights. This huge thing is a perfect choice for tailgating and outdoor parties. Truth to be told, there is a certain gap in the market when it comes to large speakers, especially if you are looking for a portable (battery operated) and powerful speaker with lights. The gap gets even bigger if you want that speaker to be rugged or waterproof. The number of possible choices is not huge but you still have some options and one of the best ones is Xpedition 8. We were really skeptical about the Altec Lansing’s flagship model called ALP-XP800 Xpedition 8 but this large speaker actually performed better than we’ve expected and proved that it can compete with other rivals (like SONY XB90, XB60, or ION
If you are looking for an affordable pair of ANC headphones under $100, you should definitely check out Paww WaveSound 3. It's one of the best options when it comes to budget ANC headphones, and in this review, we will discuss all the features that make them so great. Finding a pair of budget ANC headphones can be really difficult, especially if you want the headphones that can actually isolate some noise. There are many cheap ANC headphones but most of them are simply awful. Not only that they don't isolate the environmental noise well, but they also tend to muffle the sound when you turn on the ANC feature. The number of truly functional budget ANC headphones is very limited and we are about to present you one of them. Before we start, you must be aware that even the best bu...

TaoTronics is one of many Chinese audio brands but it’s not as generic (or as bad) as some others. All their products are affordable and usually offer decent performance for the money. We have tested their Taotronics TT-BH22 ANC headphones and ended up quite surprised. These headphones offer much more than the price implies. Keep reading our review and find out more about these amazing headphones. Taotronics TT-BH22 are closed-back over-ear Bluetooth headphones. Compared to over-ear Bluetooth headphones made by well-known manufacturers like Sennheiser, Sony, or Bose, Taotronics TT-BH22 headphones are very affordable but since they are active noise-canceling headphones, they are more than affordable – they can be considered cheap. You can buy them for less than $70 and for the price they
There’s no need to present Beats products, right? With their aggressive marketing campaigns and adverts, you have probably heard of all the Beats speakers and headphones. Having a new Beats Pill speaker or Beats headphones became more of a fashion statement. Whenever you change the channel, play a video on YouTube, or watch some NBA game, you see a bunch of actors, musicians, players, using Beats products. So, when all these famous people use them, they must be good, right? Well, not exactly. The first Beats Pill was very popular, especially among the teenagers, but didn’t really impressed audio enthusiast, audiophiles, and people that actually care about the sound. So, they discontinued the first generation and made the second – Beats Pill 2.0. This new upgraded version is the speaker
OontZ Angle 3 Ultra is another Bluetooth speaker from a very popular line of Oontz Angle speakers made by Cambridge Soundworks. Some of Angle 3 Ultra predecessors are very popular Amazon best sellers Oontz Angle 3 and Angle 3 Plus. Angle 3 Ultra is an upgraded version of Angle 3 and Angle 3 Plus. Most of the improvements are related to sound quality but there are also some improvements regarding the build quality. Some important things and features we liked on those previous versions are still the same. Angle 3 Ultra features that familiar triangular design and the price is still very much affordable. Of course, it’s a bit more expensive than Angle 3 ($15 price difference) and Angle 3 Plus ($5 price difference) but you can have it for less than $40 which makes it a great budget Bluetoot
Harman Kardon released the latest Onyx Studio speaker called Onyx Studio 5 at the end of August of 2018. All the previous versions looked pretty much the same (Onyx Studio 1 to 4) but this one is different. HK has finally accepted some customer suggestions and made some changes. Harman Kardon decided to stick to the recognizable circular design but they finally removed those undetachable legs from the rear panel (you can find them on all the previous models). Onyx Studio 5 is slightly wider than the previous versions and has a rubberized bottom that is supposed to ensure stability. Besides removing those legs, HK made this speaker even more portable by installing a nice aluminum carrying handle on the top. Also, the control buttons are relocated from the top to the front panel. Harm...
Harman Kardon Aura Studio 2 is unlike any other Bluetooth speaker you can find on the market. Now, you probably already know that Harman Kardon makes stylish, visually appealing speakers but this one is unique and looks better than any other Harman Kardon Bluetooth speaker we’ve reviewed in the past. When it comes to design, it can’t get much better than this. Aura 2 should not be mistaken for similar versions Aura and Aura+ (they support wi-fi, AirPlay, and come with an app) which are more expensive but look pretty much the same. Besides the impressive design, there are a few more great things about Harman Kardon Aura Studio 2. The most interesting feature is the ambient lighting. That's the first thing you are going to notice when you turn on the speaker. The lights are truly magi
Klipsch Reference Premiere series of home theater speakers was released in 2015 and in three years, it has become one of the most popular and highest rated lines of speakers on the market. We are presenting to you the largest bookshelf speaker from the Reference Premiere series - Klipsch RP-160M. Klipsch RP-160M is maybe larger and heavier than an average bookshelf speaker but it is almost perfect in every other way. It features sophisticated and instantly recognizable Klipsch design with spun copper woofer and Tractrix horn tweeter. It’s made of quality materials – MDF was used for the cabinet, polymer veneer was used for the finish, the woofer is made of Cerametallic (which is a combination Ceramic and Aluminum) with polymer baffle, and the tweeter is made of Titanium and it’s placed
Harman Kardon Onyx Studio 4 is one of the best sounding Bluetooth speakers under $150 on the market. There’s a bunch of reasons to buy Onyx Studio 4 – rich, powerful, and balanced sound, amazing design (one of the most elegant speakers on the market), Bluetooth connectivity, great connection quality, multi-host (connect up to 2 phones simultaneously) and daisy chaining features (connect up to 100 speakers together), built-in battery, built-in microphone, HK Connect app. Unfortunately, it’s not all that great. Most of our complaints are related to battery durability (this beautiful speaker needs some stronger battery) and build quality. This speaker is made of premium materials and looks/feels expensive but it’s not rugged enough and it’s not the best choice if you need an outdo
