I am something of a self-confessed Anker hardware fan. I've been using their cables, power supplies and portable chargers for years now. However, I never really thought of Anker in the audio space, until now. Soundcore is an Anker brand with just audio products out there, as the name suggests. So, I needed some new earphones for my daily multi-mile walks and thought I'd give Soundcore a go. Especially when I saw these 'Liberty Lite' wireless earbuds were so much cheaper than the big brand versions from the likes of Apple, Bose and Samsung. Not that I have an iPhone, …

Here’s the concept behind the smartpen: there are millions of pages of good old fashioned handwritten notes taken every day in business meetings and school lessons around the world. Unfortunately they remain trapped within the confines of the paper they are written upon. But what if you could easily share those notes, make them searchable and accessible by digitising them with a tap of the pen you write them with? [attach]21268[/attach] That’s where the Echo smartpen comes in by digitally capturing what you write, and what you hear, and then ‘pencasting’ the data using the new Livescribe Connect software. To …

The odd thing about these particular headphones is the marketing, in my opinion. The very bright colours, mine were what I can only describe as dayglo yellow, are not offset by any calmer touches; the same colour is applied to the wires, cups, buttons, jacks, headband, everything. It's a deliberate ploy to attract the Electronic Dance Music (EDM) fans, and the back of the box even states "EDM is taking over clubs and festivals all around the world, provoking the return of neon body paint, fluffy boots and glow sticks. In keeping with this trend, the KS iD headphones come …

KitSound takes music seriously, so I wasn't that surprised when I read how in recent 'blind testing' consumers were unable to tell the difference between a set of KSDJ headphones costing under £20 and high end headphones costing up to £900 when it came to the audio output. I mention this as I was very surprised when I plonked a beanie hat with a bobble on the top and a snowflake pattern onto my head and plugged it into my iPhone; surprised by the excellent clarity, tone and warmth of sound that was being reproduced by the speakers hidden within …

If you take one look at the deadmau5 portable speakers from KitSound and immediately think that they have been inspired, somewhat badly, by Mickey Mouse then I'm afraid you are showing your age and lack of cool. If, on the other hand, you are some hip young thing then you will instantly recognise the hand, or should I say the head, of deadmau5. ![deadmau51](/attachments/small/0/deadmau51.jpg "align-right") The Canadian DJ and producer known as [deadmau5](http://www.deadmau5.com/), real name Joel Thomas Zimmerman, might be based in Toronto but he has earned a global reputation in the music business, not least courtesy of his habit …

SRS has released an attachment for Apple’s iPod, iPad, and iPhone devices. As a musician, I really have a deep understanding of how tonal range works on audio devices. I was very pleased to hear that I would get to do a review of this, although I have to admit I’m pretty skeptical when it comes to audio attachments that claim to improve sound quality. I’ll get into detail about my experiences shortly, but first let’s look at exactly what the SRS iWow 3D actually is.

After [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/home-theater-home-entertainment/reviews/366884"]reviewing the Aurora laptop speaker system[/URL] from the same manufacturer, and actually being very impressed with pretty much everything about it, I was rather looking forward to getting my hands on the Sound to Go portable speaker. Unfortunately my enthusiasm was somewhat short lived as the two devices really do not compare well with each other. [ATTACH]21607[/ATTACH] Whereas the sound from the Aurora was surprisingly good; well-rounded and dynamic with more than enough 'oomph' for the average user and certainly a huge advance in quality from the average laptop speakers, the Sound to Go was just OK. By which …

Although the Aurora is, theoretically, a portable speaker system it’s not really that easy to lug around with your laptop unless you do away with a slimline carry case and replace it with a small suitcase. The tubular super-woofer, two tennis ball satellite speakers and not forgetting the power cable all adds up to a lot to carry around with you. Especially when it all weighs in at something approaching 1.8Kg. [attach]21181[/attach] Which might leave you wondering just who the Aurora is aimed at then, and that’s simple: people like me who have a laptop which only ever travels between …
