V-MODA Crossfade M-100 Review

This week we've had a look (or a listen, rather) to the V-MODA Crossfade M-100 over-ear headphones, the newest in a line of hardcore solutions from the team that brought you some of the best ear-blasting sound machines we've got in our review archives.

Regal picks Sony Smart Glasses

Regal picks Sony Smart Glasses

This week the folks at Regal have chosen Sony's Entertainment Access Glasses to help them move forward with entertaining hearing and sight-impaired patrons in ways they've never been able before. These glasses have been in production for quite a while now - as far back as a half a year since they were first revealed in fact, but it's just now that Sony has received a contract to have them distributed to this line of theaters. The real-live use of these glasses, which work with headphones to either bring descriptive audio to a patron or closed-captions directly in front of their eyes, will come at a time when such exciting concepts as Google's Project Glass come to light.
