Rugged Outdoor Bluetooth Speaker

Posted

Pros: Durablity, Waterproof, Lifeproof, Volume

Cons: Price and Deep Bass

The UE Roll is the latest installment of 360-degree sound producing Bluetooth speakers from Ultimate Ears. The UE roll is the replacement for the Mini Boom, and it takes outdoor bluetooth speakers to a whole new level.   Outdoor Rugged Design   The design of this Bluetooth speaker is new and unrecognisable compared to your standard Bluetooth speakers. The spherical disc shaped speaker is 135mm in diameter (approximately 4.8 inches with a height of 40mm (1.6 Inches), also weighting in at 340grams.   The UE Roll comes in a wide range of colours; black/orange, blue/red, purple/yellow, and three multi-coloured patterned versions.

Silky smooth sound for an unbeatable price

  Firstly, Like to thank Mike from MEE Audio, formally known as MEElectronics for supplying the 2nd generation A151P in ear earphones.   Having reviewed the 1st generation A151P, I was looking forward to the updated version. MEE Audio has replaced the balanced armature drivers with the new Knowles SR-31843, which claims to offer more linear bass and greater treble extension then the 1st generation A151P. The 1st generation was an excellent IEM, with a very smooth sound that had great extension with bass and treble, especially for a single balanced armature earphone, so my expectations are higher than before. Features   The A151p comes in a standard retail box,...

Cons: Sub Bass

 Firstly, like to thank Billy from Busisoft for organising the Westone UM PRO 10 for this review.   Westone needs no introduction, they are one of the industry leaders for professional monitors as well as consumer earphones. The UM PRO line is the newest member of a long line of IEM’s that have be very successful. This review is for the UM PRO 10, the entry model for this line.   Features   The UM PRO 10 comes packaged nicely in a bright orange hard case.

The UM Pro...

CD Quality Bluetooth sound for less then you expect

Posted

Pros: Sounds Decents, Robust Design, Light Weight, Cost

Cons: Bleeding and Isolation

  Firstly like to thank Chuck from 1964 Ears for organising the Pendulumic Stance S1+ headphones for this review.   Pendulumic is a relatively new company in the headphone world, and they have already made quite a splash with their take on Bluetooth headphones. The Stance S1+ has taken its design cues from steampunk and combined them with intuitive features to bring a great wireless Bluetooth headphone with reference quality aptX Bluetooth sound and the ability to perform on par with wired equivalent headphones.   Features   The Stance S1+ comes packaged nicely with a smallish headphone case, as the headphones themselves are able to fold flat. Also...

Room Filling Bluetooth speaker packed with 360-sound and surprises at every turn

Posted

Pros: Sounds Great, Robust Design, Waterproof and smooth tonal balance across the frequency spectrum.

Cons: Price

          Logitech’s Ultimate Ears has released some great wireless Bluetooth speakers in recent years, and the most popular of all has to be the UE BOOM. Portable, rugged, 360 degree room filling sound. So how does one make it better? You release a bigger version with better specs and bigger sound. Meet the Logitech UE MEGABOOM.  The UE MEGABOOM takes the form factor from its smaller sibling and scales it up. Measuring 21.1cm in height and a diameter of 8.4cm and weighing in around 800 grams. The speaker is mostly covered with its mesh cloth grille. Is shockproof and waterproof (IPX7), meaning if you get it wet or even drop it in your pool or bath,...

Decent Bluetooth Wireless IEM for the money

Posted

Pros: Bluetooth, Form factor, Price

Cons: Battery Life

    Firstly, like to thank Audrey from Brainwavz for supplying a BLU-100 to review. This is my first review for a Bluetooth IEM and also my first one that I have listened too.  Packaging, Accessories and Build Quality   The BLU-100 comes in a very standard retail box. It comes with standard accessories which include 3 Pairs of Silicone ear tips (S, M, L), 1 set of Comply foam tips, an ear clip, a USB charging cable and a nice clam-shell zippered case.    First impression when holding the BLU-100, is the size and weight. The housings are quite large, which is understandable, as they have to hold the driver and the Bluetooth internals. They are also a...

Best Budget In Ears with Mic.

Posted

Pros: Sounds Great, Robust Design, Light Weight, Sound

Cons: Large Ear Tips

Shure SE112m+ In-Ear Headphone Review     Firstly, like to thank Brad from JANDS for supplying the Shure SE112m+ to review.         Packaging, Accessories and Build Quality   The SE112 m+ is Shure’s budget in ear headphones with mic, coming in at $105 AUD. ($59 USD) The packaging is your standard clear plastic carton, nothing too fancy. Inside you get your in ears, three sizes of soft, flexible ear tips, a cleaning tool to help keep your earphones free of earwax and a drawstring pouch for storage.   First thing I noticed is the build quality of the in ears themselves. The driver housings are larger than most IEM's I have seen, and...

WOW, Alumium In-Ears for a price that is hard to belive.

Posted

Pros: Sounds Great, Robust Design, Light Weight, Cost

Cons: Some Microphonics

  Firstly, like to thank Mike from Meelectronics for supplying the M9 Classic to review.   The new release of the M9 Classic is Meelectronics budget in ear headphone. Priced at $9.99USD, I was a little skeptical that they could make an in-ear that sounds decent, but I was wrong.   Packaging, Accessories and Build Quality   One way the M9 Classic is able to make a decent in-ear, for a low price, is to throw away traditional packaging design.     The phones come in a brown corrugated box, inside you get the in-ears, and 4 pairs of silicon tips. S, M, L and one pair of Double Flange. That is it, and that is all you need. The in-ears are also 30%...

Solid Build and Great Sounding IEM

Posted
    Firstly, like to thank Audrey from Brainwavz for supplying a S1 to review.         Packaging, Accessories and Build Quality   The S1 comes in a stylish box with a magnetic closure. It comes with a good amount of accessories which include 6 Pairs of Silicone ear tips (S, M, L), 1 set of Bi Flange and 1 Set of triple flanged ear tips. Also included is a pair of comply foam tips, an air plane adapter and a nice clamshell zipper case.   The most notable feature of these earphones is the flat cable. This helps resist tangling and aid in less pulling when wearing it over the ear. I felt that the cable was a tad thick on the ear, and you...

Sweet Bass with a low price tag!

Posted

Pros: Light, Comfortable, Price and Sound

Cons: Odd cable length, accessories and treble harshness.

If you never heard of iSK headphones before, you may be forgiven because they mainly focus on professional Studio and Broadcast Microphones plus Recording and Live Performance Microphones. As mentioned on their website,   "iSK Microphones, supply high quality professional Studio and Broadcast Microphones plus Recording and Live Performance Microphones and Accessories. iSK goal is simply, to deliver outstanding quality in sound reproduction and build specification at an affordable price."   So as a headphone manufacture iSK is a relatively unknown, and thus make a perfect candidate for reviewing their earphone line.   Firstly, like to thank Tom at swamp...
