Yamaha Infosound TV test pumps high-pitched URLs into your iPhone

Yamaha Japan has run a live broadcast demo of its Infosound technology, which takes advantage of high-pitched sound frequencies inaudible to humans to transmit data to mobile devices like the iPhone. Infosound uses frequencies above 18kHz for 80bps short-range data transfer; while Yamaha was demonstrating prototype systems at CEATEC earlier this year, a live test on Japanese digital TV network RCC took place in Tokyo in the early hours of this morning.

Orb Music MP-1 Review

Orb Music MP-1 Review

Whole-house audio isn't new, and - as Sonos has shown - it isn't necessarily complicated, but nor has it generally been all that affordable.

Check out the full review after the cut.

Orb TV VP-1 $99 WiFi video streamer promises Hulu support

Orb TV VP-1 $99 WiFi video streamer promises Hulu support

Orb's $69 MP-1 WiFi audio streamer was good, but we couldn't help but wish it worked with the place-shifting software's video capabilities too; it seems the company was listening, as they've just outed the Orb TV.

JH Audio JH16 Pro Review

JH Audio JH16 Pro Review

In the world of earphones, there are some obvious tiers: the bundled earbuds that came with your PMP or cellphone and should probably be dumped straight away; their mainstream replacements; off-the-shelf in-ear monitors (IEMs); and then custom-molded IEMs. There's also a less publicized hierarchy, of the audio craftsmen behind the IEMs themselves. Ask an audiophile their opinion of Jerry Harvey, and you can probably expect an hour or two of hero-worship; having tested out the new JHAudio JH16 Pro custom IEMs, we now know why. Check out the full review after the cut.

SanDisk Fuze+ MP3 Players Announced, Available Now with New Design

SanDisks' Fuze line-up of Personal Media Players have managed to remain present on the market for awhile now, without ever bringing too much attention to themselves. They're what you might call the "minimal" PMP, with not much going for them in the features department. Fortunately, SanDisk have finally managed to update the PMPs, not only giving them the favorite "+" symbol now, but also making them attractive enough to give a second glance.
