JLab B-Flex X-Bass laptop speaker adds some boom

JLab B-Flex X-Bass laptop speaker adds some boom

My single biggest pet peeve of laptop and integrated sound on computers in general is the lack of bass. Often, the sound is so low even at full blast you can forget watching a movie or listening from across the room. That leads many people to look for quality external speakers. JLab has a new speaker that looks interesting for your notebook or AIO. The speaker is the B-Flex X-Bass, and it plugs in using a USB port.

Though Mizco, the group making this device, has been in the designer-inspired consumer electronics brand now for a year, they've got nothing so strange as this.

XtremeMac Tango TRX Review

XtremeMac Tango TRX Review

The iPod dock by the name of XtremeMac Tango TRX has been out for some time now, having been first announced all the way back in 2010, but it's no worse for wear with the 2011 holiday season rapidly approaching, and since we've never had a look at it before and there's a brand new bit of functionality now with Google Music out of beta, let's have a look, shall we? This device comes with several parts - first being the main speaker complete with iPod dock which can house anything from the tiniest iPod to the iPad 2, though I wouldn't recommend the latter as it does block a bit of the sound blast and isn't exactly held the most securely in place. Then there's the bit that makes this whole thing unique: the second docking station, one that allows you to charge the device on one side of the house while the speaker jams music out at the other.
