Nuraphone G2 Review

Nuraphone G2 Review

Rarely do you need to review a product twice, even electronic devices that receive occasional or regular software updates. There are rare times, however, when an update changes the game so significantly that it almost feels like you’re using a completely different and newer product. That’s the miracle that Australian startup Nura tried to pull off with the G2 update to its already groundbreaking wireless headset. But does the nuraphone G2 leave up to the company’s own high standards? We prick up our ears to find out.

Jaybird Tarah Pro Wireless Sports Headphones Review: Fit for Purpose

Jaybird Tarah Pro Wireless Sports Headphones Review: Fit for Purpose

On the box - Dreams of promise

Holding the Jaybird Tarah Pro box in my hand, I’m struck by the image of a mountain runner moving fast and free as a bird over technical terrain. A lone human in a range of misty mountains – with no visible sign of dangling wires; simplicity at its best. Man in nature with the Tarah Pro delivering driving beats to override a mental, emotional, and physical state of exhaustion. I connect instantly with the image, since, I myself, am a mountain runner - one whose been on the hunt for the perfect sport headsets. Heartbroken, at having cycled through four pairs of dead-beat buds over the last year... might I have found my best buds ever? Tarah Pro offers me some real hope.

Bluetooth 5.1 will know which direction a signal comes from

Bluetooth 5.1 will know which direction a signal comes from

Some, especially real estate agents, would say it’s all about location. That’s only partly true when it comes to location-based services and technology.

Wiliot Bluetooth sticker sensor tag requires no batteries

Bluetooth-enabled tags and trackers aren’t exactly new but they all have one limitation in common. Aside from the range limit of Bluetooth itself, of course. Because of the electronics required to make them work, they require energy sources, often the thinnest and smallest of batteries. But if semiconductor startup Wiliot successfully proves its new tech, they won’t have to. Bluetooth trackers can be as small and as thin as a postage stamp and get what little power they need almost from the air.

Tile helps you find a bunch of Bluetooth devices

Back in August, Skullcandy's Venue headphones launched with a particularly interesting feature: they had Tile's technology embedded inside. This meant that you'd be able to use Tile's app to locate your headphones in the event that you lost them.

Bluetooth is one of the most used wireless technologies, especially when connecting devices to one another without having to connect to Wi-Fi or cellular networks.

That’s why Google is committed to making its Fast Pair Bluetooth pairing easier, faster, and more available to take the hassle out of pairing Bluetooth devices.

Xiaomi Mi AirDots true wireless earbuds are affordable, out of reach

Xiaomi Mi AirDots true wireless earbuds are affordable, out of reach

Apple can perhaps be credited for popularizing the already existing “true” wireless earbuds market, giving birth to both new products and knock-offs. Chinese manufacturers are notorious for the latter and one would expect someone like Xiaomi to once again copy those designs and products. The Chinese company has outgrown that inclination and while its new Mi AirDots might sound like the AirPods, they are thankfully quite far from being cheap clones. Though they are definitely cheap if you can get your hands on a pair.

Mighty Vibe returns to bring Spotify offline with you anywhere

Mighty Vibe returns to bring Spotify offline with you anywhere

Streaming is pretty much the de facto delivery and consumption method for digital content these days. So much so that getting access to offline content is ironically now a paid subscription feature rather than the default. But there will always be times when an Internet connection isn't available or isn't good enough for quality audio, let alone video streaming. And there are also times when you'd rather not bring your phone with you to increase its chances of survival. For both those cases, the Mighty Vibe, a.k.a. the Spotify iPod Shuffle, might be your cup of tea.
