Marshall Uxbridge Smart Speaker Review: Guitars And Google Home

marshall uxbridge smart speaker
It feels like you can buy anything and everything with a Google Assistant built into it now. Looking around my sitting room, I have a Google Assistant-powered soundbar, a Google Home in the kitchen and Google Nest Wifi which has an assistant in the bedroom too. In such a small space adding another smart speaker meant it needed to...

Kygo A11/800 Review: For The Dance Music Fans Not The Audiophiles

kygo a11/800 review
There's a whopper volume of headphones hitting the market these days. It's well-timed too. Not all office workplaces encourage headphones, but with more people working from home and seeking the ability to "get in the zone" with noisy surroundings, people want good audio equipment. The Kygo A11/800 headphones are one of the latest pairs of noise-cancelling headphones to land...

EKSA E900 Pro: A Cheap But Excellent Gaming Headset

EKSA E900 Pro Gaming Headset
When you run a tech review website, you get a lot of cold emails. The vast majority of them are junk, generic emails that get no further thought beyond me wondering why they didn't end up in spam.

Huawei FreeBuds 3i Review: €99 For Excellence

Then, I realised it was time to say goodbye to the headphone jack. Apple actually builds some pretty great products. And the design of AirPods means...

Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT Review: If It’s Good Enough For Lady Gaga?

ATH-M50xBT review
Lady Gaga part-organised the amazing One World Concert. The event raised around €118 million for Covid-19 causes. It was an incredible event. I also noticed that I have become a bit of a headphone nerd while watching it. As all of these superstars from around the world played their well-known tunes, Lady Gaga came on the screen. I blurted...

People are investing more and more in audio equipment these days. It might be a by-product of travelling more, but noise-cancelling headphones capable of muting the like of aeroplane engines top of people's shopping lists. For me, shopping for noise-cancelling headphones means you're looking at the likes of Bose, Sony and Sennheiser. I've tested out the Sennheiser Momentum 3...
