Unlike most other tech companies lately, Microsoft did a pretty good job of keeping leaks to a minimum for their October surface event, cause I was genuinely surprised when Microsoft announced their new Surface Headphones. And even though it was a very good first try, the Surface Headphones still have a lot of growing up to do in this increasingly competitive ANC Headphone market.
Even though I expected more, for the last few months the JBL Xtreme 2 has been one of my favorite speakers period. Its not too big, it has a decent battery life, I can take it anywhere, and more importantly it sounds really good. And the Xtreme 2 has done a good job of out performing similar speakers that were released after it. But today we’re going to put the Xtreme 2 up against 2 more large portable speakers. Lets see if the Sony XB501G or Marshall Kilburn 2 can finally dethrone the JBL Xtreme 2.
Even though its pretty small, the Marshall Kilburn 2 packs an impressive amount of sound and a long battery life in a very small package. And even though there is a lot to like about the Marshall Kilburn 2… there are just some things about it that just make me wondering what the heck was Marshall thinking. Heres everything I like about the Marshall Kilburn 2 and everything I hate about the Marshall Kilburn 2.
I think Sony has been recently killing it with their headphones. Their 1000XM3’s are currently the best ANC headphones on the market and their WH-CH700N are a really good pair of budget friendly headphones packed with a lot of features. But their speakers on the other hand could use some work. Namely, their Audio clarity could be better and their Software and Wireless Party Chain feature could be more stable. So let's see what the new Sony XB501G is all about.
Fitbit has been on the upswing ever since they released the Fitbit Versa, its still a fitness tracker first, and smart watch second… but everything its supposed to do it does it very well. And I still think the Versa is still the best fitness tracker in Fitbit’s line up. But now we have the Fitbit Charge 3, it does almost everything the versa does but in a much smaller and inconspicuous package.
