A lot of the times, true wireless earbuds tend to focus more on portability and mobility. As a result, many of them don’t sound quite as good compared to other earphones or headphones, but we suppose that’s one of the sacrifices one has to make. However, if you value sound quality and mobility, then Sennheiser might have something of interest to you.
There are many who are undoubtedly concerned about the spread of the coronavirus. One of the ways to prevent the spread is to keep ourselves as clean as possible by washing our hands, using hand sanitizer, and to avoid touching our faces. So much so that Apple is now trying to prevent customers from trying on certain products in their stores.
It seems that Apple could have a stellar year on their hands as far as the AirPods are concerned. This is according to a report from DigiTimes (paywall) in which they are claiming that based on information from sources within Apple’s supply chain, the company is apparently planning on boosting AirPods shipments by as much as 50% in 2020.
While Apple’s AirPods are used by many at the gym, the fact that they are only splash resistant means that it might not necessarily be too useful for those who perform very intensive workouts and might sweat a lot, especially if you want to rinse them off later. This is where the Powerbeats series comes in, and it looks like Apple could have a new model in the works.
According to the rumors, Apple has a bunch of new accessories planned for 2020, one of which is a rumored pair of high-end headphones. How true are those rumors?

At the moment, Apple’s HomePod is designed in such a way that the controls are placed on the top of the speaker where users can control music playback. They can also control it using Siri.

There have been rumors that Apple could have a cheaper version of the AirPods Pro in the works dubbed the AirPods Pro Lite.

While the sound quality from Bang & Olufsen speakers are debatable, especially amongst audiophiles, there is no denying that the company makes some fantastic looking speakers that will blend in quite nicely with your home furniture.

It used to be that you could buy a device and it would last you until it broke down. This is why Sonos came under fire when they announced that they would be ending support for some of its older products (they later reversed their decision). Now it looks like the company is backtracking on yet another controversial decision in the form of “recycle mode”.
Over the years, we’ve seen how our consumption of music has changed. It used to be that we would listen to music on vinyl, which later moved to the cassette tape, and then before moving onto CDs, and then digital. These days, digital is still very much the preferred medium, but now it looks like more people are favoring streaming over downloading.
Music is basically a combination of different notes played at different rhythms. This means that there is only a finite number of possible combinations, which means from time to time, lawsuits appear where one musician/band will sue another claiming that they have stolen a melody they have written and used it in their song.
Bluetooth speakers are a dime a dozen, and for the most part, a lot of them tend to focus on portability which means that sometimes, sound quality is sacrificed in the process. However, if you are looking for a set of speakers that is both portable and has a good amount of bass, then Ultimate Ears might have something for you.
Despite being primarily known as a company that makes amplifiers and equipment for musicians, Marshall has over the years slowly gained a reputation for creating some pretty amazing audio products in the form of consumer grade headphones and Bluetooth speaker systems.
