Powerbeats 4 pops up at FCC confirming new design

Apple may have its AirPods but not all Apple fans, even the hardcore ones, buy into it, whether because of its design or its audio quality. Fortunately for Apple, it also owns Beats, both the brand and the audio technology, to give consumers more options that still profit it in the long run.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Review

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Review

Samsung's Galaxy Buds+ may have had to share stage-time with the Galaxy S20 series and the Galaxy Z Flip at Unpacked 2019, but that's not to say the updated wireless earbuds weren't worth attention. Follow-up to last year's well-received Galaxy Buds, the new earbuds promise a boost in audio quality, usability, and battery life, though with an increase in price along the way.
