I recently made a video about IK Multimedia’s new keyboard, the iRig Keys I/O 25. It’s a midi controller with built in audio interface and works with both laptops and iPads. If you like the video, please like, comment and subscribe over on YouTube.
It was quite a spur of the moment purchase to be honest. I’ve always been looking at hi-resolution portable audio players and assumed that the one I’d eventually get would be one by Fiio.
Earlier this year, Sony announced a range of new portable audio players aimed at audiophiles including the gold NW-WM1Z (£2500, anyone?) as well as the much more affordable NW-A35. It’s at this point I have to say that Sony’s product naming conventions are terrible.
These are the Bose QuietComfort 35, noise-cancelling Bluetooth headphones and the latest release from Bose and finally, they have released a wireless version of their very popular QuietComfort 25 headphones.
Technology gets harder and harder to repair. And more and more expensive. And through this fast-paced evolution of technology we’re experiencing this decade, it’s becoming increasingly more fragile. It’s not fair to compare a Nokia 3310 tank to an iPhone, but it’s a comparison I’ve frequently seen.
A drummer I know brought in his Christmas present into the office and it blew me away. It was the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker. As soon as I saw and heard it, I knew I wanted one.
Being a musician, I rather shockingly don’t have any decent speakers through which to play music at home. I have a home theatre system and an okay bluetooth speaker by Blaupunkt, but neither of them truly cut it in terms of sound quality.
I’ve been shopping around for a good camera backpack for a while now. I tend to take a lot of stuff around with me when out taking photos, including my iPad and recently acquired USB charger.
I’m currently sitting by a roaring fire typing away whilst listening to Classic FM on a new Pure Evoke Flow DAB/Internet radio that I received today. Having the item delivered was a mission in itself with all sorts of problems with Yodel, but I won’t go into that.
So I thought I’d write a quick review so if anyone else was thinking of buying it, they could do so with a bit more knowledge about the product.
