Fast Pair learns to share Bluetooth pairing data across your Android devices — and soon Chromebooks, too

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

With so many phone-makers dropping physical headphone jacks in favor of a Bluetooth-dominated music experience, we're all the more aware of the sacrifices we make going the wireless route. Beyond concerns over latency, battery life, and sound fidelity, it's also important to consider issues with setup; while it's effortless to plug in a pair of wired headphones and immediately get listening, Bluetooth pairing isn't always as straightforward. Last year Google took steps to simplify things with the introduction of its Fast Pair system, and today we get word of the latest Fast Pair enhancements.

TicPods Free review: Capable true wireless earbuds that won’t break the bank

Wednesday, October 24th, 2018

True wireless earbuds have seen a huge rise in popularity over the last couple of years as the products have reached a price point and level of quality that make them viable purchases for mainstream consumers. The IFA 2018 show floor was packed with new models from various brands, and I’ve already reviewed two products in the category in the last couple of months.

The Earin M–2 ($249) and Master & Dynamic MW07 ($299) were both premium products with hefty price tags, but now it’s time to try something a little easier on the wallet.

When considering a Bluetooth speaker, there are a few criteria you're probably looking for. Ideally, it should sound great, be easy to transport, and last long enough on a charge. Cambridge Soundworks' Oontz Angle 3 Ultra seems to hit all those marks with the added benefit of having a very silly name, and today, it's only $26.99 on Amazon.

The Oontz measures just 6.5 inches, but it's rated for 20 hours of playback, and reviewers are very keen on its sound quality.

Jaybird X4 review: Great earbuds without much new to offer

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

A confession: I gave up on my previous pair of Bluetooth earbuds, Jaybird's own X2, after about a year. It wasn't their fault; they sounded good, they were comfortable, and the battery lasted long enough. But keeping the things charged (with microUSB, no less — yuck) and juggling connections became a chore. I gave them away and cozied up to a pair of no-name wired buds. Once I got a Pixel 2, I was living the dongle life.

Qualcomm aptX Adaptive is the newest attempt to improve Bluetooth audio

Saturday, September 1st, 2018

Qualcomm is looking to tackle some of the issues with Bluetooth audio with its new aptX Adaptive codec. Its key feature is that it dynamically adjusts to what you're consuming, which should not only improve audio quality overall, but also reduce latency in A/V content like videos and games. 

We all know that Bluetooth audio can be spotty and disappointing (especially when compared to wired), which is a bummer since more smartphone manufacturers are doing away with the headphone jack.
