Anker Zolo Liberty completely wireless earbuds are available today for $99.99

Monday, November 20th, 2017

Anker is best known for making portable battery packs and other charging accessories, but it's been increasingly dabbling in personal audio. The company ran a Kickstarter for some fancy earbuds a few months ago, but those ones aren't for sale yet. You can, however, get the slightly less fancy version right now. The Zolo Liberty Bluetooth earbuds are on sale today for $99.99.

These are "completely wireless" earbuds, which means there's no cable connecting the two earbuds.

Google Assistant on Pixel 2 is not detecting voice input through Bluetooth headphones

Friday, November 10th, 2017

Most owners of OG Pixels can attest that Bluetooth on those devices is not the best. We've written a fair few articles about the various issues over the past year, but with the launch of the new Pixels we were hopeful that Google might have improved things somewhat. While Bluetooth performance so far does seem to be more consistent, we've just learned about one particularly annoying bug that Pixel 2 owners have uncovered.

[Deal Alert] Bose QC25 noise-canceling headphones are down to $179 ($100 off) at several retailers

Thursday, November 9th, 2017

Bose's beloved QuietComfort 35 may already have a successor, the QuietComfort 35 II, but the company has still been selling the wired QC25 for quite some time. At $279, it appeals to a slightly different market than the $349 QC35 (II). But for the impending Black Friday deals, the company has dropped prices by $100 to just $179 at quite a few retailers.

The QC25s are a great set of headphones all around.

JBL Everest Elite 750NC review: A very compelling set of noise cancelling Bluetooth headphones

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Noise cancelling headphones rank high on my list of essential items to bring on a flight. By dampening the sounds of crying kids, chatty passengers, and the dull throbbing roar of the jet engines, NC headphones can transform a miserable travel experience into a tolerable one.

The headphones pictured above are the JBL Everest Elite 750NC, and I'm pretty impressed with them. With an MSRP of $299 and a current street price of $229 they aren't cheap, but they deliver in the critical areas of noise cancellation, comfort, and sound quality, which helps to justify their lofty price.

Google announces ‘made for Google’ program to certify accessories

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017

The focus of today's announcement might have been the new Pixel phones, but Google also had a nice little surprise that accompanied all the hardware-related news. At the bottom of the blog post for the new Pixel phones, Google revealed that it has a new program called "made for Google" which certifies that accessories like cases, cables, and headphones from different manufacturers meet the company's stringent requirements. 

Details are sparse, so we don't know exactly what these requirements are, but it sounds like Google will be individually testing accessories to ensure compatibility and safety with the company's devices.

Google uploaded a pile of videos showing off how the Google Assistant works on headphones

Sunday, October 1st, 2017

The Google Help account uploaded three new videos a few days back, detailing exactly how to use the Google Assistant on devices like Bose's recently released QuietComfort 35 II. If you've been wondering how, exactly, the Google Assistant works in that type of environment, it actually looks reasonably intuitive. And either way, the videos are pretty short and worth a watch. 

If you haven't already heard, Google's been interested in integrating its AI-powered Assistant into headphones.

Bose launches pricey SoundSport Free wireless earbuds, plus a ridiculous neck speaker

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

The headline announcement from Bose yesterday may have been the Google Assistant-toting QuietComfort 35 II headphones, but it wasn't the only new product the company has to shout about. There's also the completely wireless SoundSport Free earbuds, which are being touted as a worthy Apple AirPods competitor. And just for a bit of a laugh (unfortunately they're actually serious), Bose is also releasing the preposterous SoundWear Companion Speaker, a "neck speaker" to you and me.
