I know some people can’t afford to spend too much on a pair of headphones, but I also know that there are some people out there who just want to get a pair of really cheap headphones they can throw around or use them at the gym without having to worry or care about them. So thats why I wanted to checkout the Skullcandy Riff. Personally, skull candy has been very hit or miss for me lately, So lets see how the skullcandy Riff stack up.
When Sony first released the 1000XM3’s it was a big deal for two reasons. Obviously they improved their tech specs so they’d perform over all better… but they also improved their over all build quality and redesigned them so they’d look a lot better than their predecessors as well. And thankfully the new Sony WH-XB700’s have gone through the same treatment. Now even though I really do like the new Sony XB700’s I’m extra excited over them cause they are clearly giving us a preview of what to expect from the Sony XB1000’s.
I know I’ve said this before, but I really like the Audio-Technica ATH-SR50BT’s. I think they don’t get nearly as much love as they deserve and if it weren’t for their crapy touch pads I think they’d be the best $200 headphones on the market right now. So out of sheer curiosity I thought I should also check out the SR50BT’s little brothers, the ATH-SR30BT’s. And over all, I think Audio-Technica has another winner right here.
After a lot of anticipation and rumors… the AirPods 2 are finally here. And if you’re an iPhone user looking for truly wireless earbuds, then the AirPods 2 are still the best ones you can get period. But even though the new AirPods 2 bring new features like wireless charging if you decide to get the $200 version and always listening Siri, I think Apple could of and should have done more given that other truly wireless earbuds are starting to catch up and surpass the AirPods 2.
Theres a lot of hype around the new Galaxy buds… and its with good reason. They’re a really good pair of truly wireless earbuds that perform very well, they fit well, and both the buds themselves and carrying case are pretty small. But most importantly, they only cost $130. But the $80 sound core Liberty Air have also gotten a fair amount of hype. So could these really be a viable alternative for both the Galaxy Buds and AirPods?
If you’re an iPhone user looking for a great pair of truly wireless earbuds the obvious answer is AirPods… But the same hasn’t been true for android users until now. Even though the market is flooded with truly wireless earbuds who’s prices range from $50 dollars to $1,000 dollars, have different features and styles… not many have been able to hit the same dollar to performance ratio found on the AirPods. But I think thats finally changed with Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds.
Back at CES 2019 Sony announced their upcoming Sony XB22 and XB32 portable bluetooth speakers… And I also expect a Sony XB42 is also on the way. Cause over the last few days Sony has been updating their companion apps for their Headphones and Speakers to support unspecified newer models. But now Sony Asia has officially announced their upcoming WH-XB700’s. Now I’m going to tell you what the WH-XB700’s are all about and also what it could mean for upcoming yet to be announced products.
Im going to start off this video by saying that I really like Audio-Technica’s $200 ATH-SR50BT headphones… And if it weren’t for their crappy touch pad, I think they would be the best $200 headphones on the market right now. So when Audio-Technica announced their new ATH-ANC900BT Quietpoint headphones at CES 2019, admittedly I was pretty excited. But after getting my hands on them… its just pretty hard to recommend these headphones in today’s super competitive Premium ANC Headphone market.
