I recently received a pair of Audeze Mobius to review and I have to agree with Lisabel’s “HOLY SHIT!” I am too new with these cans to give them a thorough review but my initial impression is that Audeze has figured out how to make their incredible planar magnetic headphone technology accessible to folks for […]

Bang & Olufsen brand subsidiary B&O Play today announced the Beoplay P6, the latest offering in its range of portable wireless speakers.
Designed by Cecilie Manz, the P6 shares a similar aesthetic to the Danish audio company’s Beoplay A1 and P2, featuring a dust and splashproof anodized aluminum exterior with square speaker grilles on both sides, and a leather strap looped through one side for carrying.
Across the curved top of the speaker is a strip of Beomaster 6000-inspired integrated flex buttons for controlling volume, playback, Bluetooth, accepting/rejecting calls, and invoking any voice assistant available on the connected device, such as Siri on iPhone. There’s also a built-in omnidirectional mic for conference calling.
The Bluetooth speaker weighs 1kg and measures 170 x 130 x 68mm, which makes this a slim unit when you consider it houses a 2600mAh rechargeable battery providing up to 16 hours of playing time at moderate listening le

In 2012, B&O launched a diffusion brand to attract a younger demographic, a project I […]

I got my first Bang & Olufsen piece of equipment today, the H9i wireless headphones. I remember the first time I ever saw and touched a B&O stereo. This was probably in 1982 or 1983 and I was 12 or 13 years old. A friend’s dad had a stereo that had no physical buttons, everything […]
Read Here “We have seen many good headphones in the recent months and years, but it seems that the higher end segment is concentrating on planar magnetic drivers. The market is filled with cans from established orthodynamic headphone manufacturers like HiFiMAN, Audeze and Abyss themselves, but we have seen new introductions like the Empyrean by […]
Truly wireless earbuds are a more common sight right now, thanks in part to Apple’s incredibly popular AirPods. I see these things everywhere now but they’re mainly for those who have an iPhone. While they do work for Android, they lose a bit of functionality so for us not on an iPhone, we usually look […]
