House of Marley Bag of Rhythm Review

House of Marley Bag of Rhythm Review

This month we've gotten the opportunity take a peek at the House of Marley Bag of Rhythm, a massive carry-along amplifier for your iPhone and/or any other device with a headphone jack. The idea here is that you carry this beast along with you wherever you want to go jamming, and turn the twin 1-inch tweeters and 4.5-inch high-definition woofers out on the world to bring sunshine and positivity to your friendly neighbors. What you'll get is an aesthetically (and acoustically) lovely unique piece of equipment that'll fit any one of your iPods just perfectly.

iFrogz Boost NearField Audio speaker Review

iFrogz Boost NearField Audio speaker Review

This little piece of hardware is a fabulous wonder of the modern wireless age - and it doesn't just work for iPhone, it works for any tiny speaker that wants to be amplified! The iFrogz Boost NearField Audio speaker is a little brick - it weights in at next to nothing, is made mostly of soft, rubbery plastic on the outside, has a few bumpers on the bottom to hold it tight to your table. This device will blast out audio at high levels without any more effort on your part than placing the speaker portion of your smartphone near the power button side of the device. It's really quite magical - as you'll see here in a moment.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Full Size Keyboard Dock Review

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Full Size Keyboard Dock Review

Just this past week we got our hands on the Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE, a perfectly excellent tablet from Samsung carried by Verizon and reviewed and full by us. This week we've got our hands on the official Full Size Keyboard Dock, as it were, and it's looking to be the perfect companion for this already pretty nice little device. What we're going to look at here in this relatively brief review is build quality, speed of connection, and expansion abilities - spoiler: it does pretty good in all these categories.

Sync by 50 SMS-WS Wireless Headphones Review

What we've got here is a pair of wireless headphones by the name of Sync by 50, made by SMS audio and sent out in the first wave of headphones approved and tuned personally by 50 Cent and crew. This model is the shiny white version of these bluetooth-enabled phones, a black version also available in stores now - both of these models lit up by the "S" logo on either ear and connected to your bluetooth devices with a dongle about half the size of a pack of gum, and twice as fat. Are these massive and massively flashy headphones worth their equally massive price tag at $399.95? Let's find out!

House of Marley Redemption Song On-ear Headphones Review

House of Marley Redemption Song On-ear Headphones Review

We've got our hands on the legacy of Bob Marley encapsulated in a pair of on-ear headphones, a pair by the name of Redemption Song. This pair of headphones is one of six different models available at the moment from House of Marley in the on-ear headphones category and have the same environment-friendly and premium features as the whole House of Marley line of phones: recyclable aluminum ring, recycled packaging, and an audio cord that's to die for. And the phones sound pretty darn good, too.

id America Spark In-Ear Headphones Review

id America Spark In-Ear Headphones Review

When you look for a quality pair of earbuds for your day to day activities like riding the bus, sitting in the commons at your school listening to some tunes at lunchtime, or just walking to and from your vehicle at the office, you want a few things specifically. One of those things is for the audio to sound great. The next thing, and this is two for two so far with the Spark, is for the phones to either have a high or low-profile look to them. Lucky you, Spark can come in either black as night or bright as the sun shines in the noon time.

Satechi Audio Move SD Review

Satechi Audio Move SD Review

Onto the SlashGear review bench has fallen one of the most powerful little beat-blasters able to be supplied with said music by a microSD card we may have ever seen. This is the Satechi Audio Move SD, and though you can plug your tiny memory card into its side to bring the heat to the block with stereo sound and some relatively excellent bass, you can also plug your iPhone, your Android, your Windows Phone, your BlackBerry, etcetera and etcetera into the side of this little monster and let the love flow!

SkinIt Etched Metal Plate for iPhone 4S Review

SkinIt Etched Metal Plate for iPhone 4S Review

As far as unique skins for the mobile market go, iPhone or not, there's nothing quite as detailed and unique as SkinIt's own Etched Metal Plates. These plates are made specifically for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S and attach flat to the back of your device with a simple adhesive sticker. The adhesive is no joke, of course, strong as it needs to be to hold this plate on for the long haul, and the folks at SkinIt mean business when they say its stainless steel.

Three Web Cube Review

Three Web Cube Review

Take the portability out of mobile broadband, and you're left with a plain old broadband connection, but what if your home or office doesn't get a high-speed hookup or you're only going to be around for a short chunk of the typical 12-24 month agreement? Carrier Three believes it has the answer with the Web Cube, in effect a mobile broadband router that can't go any further than an AC socket. In return, you get convenience, some degree of mobility and - every geek's favorite - blue LED lighting. But is a non-mobile mobile modem niche or nonsense? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

G-Form Extreme Portfolio for iPad 2 Review

G-Form Extreme Portfolio for iPad 2 Review

The portfolio case you're about to see is so hardcore that it can carry essentially any 10-inch tablet from here to outer space and plummet back to the ground with the tablet unharmed. This case is the baddest mother to have come out on the case circuit since the launch of the original iPad, having so much padding that you'll struggle to find a way to do the protection justice. This is the G-Form Extreme Portfolio, and if you put your iPad in it, start a movie up, toss it out of your car off of a bridge onto a rocky ground below, you'll also be able to find it easily because it's BRIGHT yellow - and it won't have been damaged either - your movie will still be rolling.
