    Ultimate Ears Turns Up the Volume on the UE Boom 2

    When it came out a couple years ago, we loved the UE Boom, a portable Bluetooth speaker that packed boombox sound into a 7″ cylindrical speaker with 360° sound output.

    JBL Charge 2+ Splashproof Portable Speaker Review

    The JBL Charge 2+ is quite possibly the best portable bluetooth speaker on the market right now. We felt the same way about the predecessor, the JBL Charge, when it came out two years ago.

    Someone Jammed Bluetooth Speakers into a Slap Bracelet

    We’ve seen a spirited revival of the slap bracelet in the last few years, with sound effect generators, styluses, and weird watches. Alright, it’s been a motley crew. But, there’s been one other company doing things a little differently in the slap bracelet space, and it’s made for something surprising — a Bluetooth speaker jammed […]

    Recycled Tire Gets Transformed into a Speaker

    Despite all appearances, no, this isn’t a portable speaker. The Seal Recycled Tire Speaker sure looks like it’s ready to hit the road, though — it’s housed in a recycled and freshened up tire. It’s being billed as eco-friendly, which I’m guessing means this beats those tires being added to a tire fire somewhere. Japan […]

    It’s almost time for going outside to be something you want to do instead of something you have to do. So, before you start dusting off the patio furniture and making sure the barbecue is in working order, make sure you’ve got something to provide the tunes.

    The Cassette Boombox is Back

    We love our boombox throwbacks, but unfortunately, a scant few we see these days actually have cassette tape decks. But, when we do see those, they’re usually being sold by Urban Outfitters, a pattern that continues today. The Radio + Cassette + MP3 Boombox is the latest ideal marriage between past and present. This boombox looks […]

    Artist Craola Puts His Mark on the UE BOOM Speaker 

    No typo here—Ultimate Ears isn’t getting together with the crayon people (although we’d love to see that), but popular multimedia artist Greg ‘Craola’ Simkins. The result is the Safe Haven Edition UE BOOM, the latest in the artist edition line. And, like always, this is going to be a limited run, so better get in […]

    Aiwa is Back From the Dead

You might remember Aiwa as an electronics company big into audio equipment before business dried up and they were bought […]

    Life-Like Dalek Speaker is Begging to Exterminate You

    We’ve seen Doctor Who Bluetooth wireless speakers before, but never anything on this level. Massive Audio has new officially licensed speakers, and they aren’t messing around with the details. We’re also pretty stoked that they remembered that the TARDIS isn’t the only thing from Doctor Who that can be made into merchandise. Of course, they […]
