Amazon Echo

For months now I have read great raves about the Amazon Echo and the more I read the more I want to get one. But I don’t think I am crazy enough to blow my salary for a $179 tech that is in its first generation but we will see. I posted videos below to give you an idea what are the things it can do and the things that need improvements.

It uses voice command just like Apple’s Siri or Window’s Cortana. The name is Alexa which sounds a bit porny for you dirty minds! It is recommended for those who have embraced home automation and would love this technology to do their daily tasks.

If you are looking for a 365 degrees sound then the Aura by Harman Kardon is the best thing for you. I was looking for ‘stuff’ when I stumbled upon this stylish speaker system. I will post the youtube review from Luke Bell below. I love its slickness. It looks like an alien ship. It is also monstrously loud!

Edifier M1370bt Bluetooth 2.1 Speakers affordable but good!

edifier-m1370bt-bluetooth-2-1-speakers-sku-227063-full

Are you looking for a  set of bluetooth speakers under $65? Check this speaker system called Edifier M1370bt. I have been using it last night both as a music streaming speaker system for Spotify and also to play the music from my iPhone or iPad. It is good. Full rich bass and warm mid-range sounds. The only set back is..well it is through bluetooth and we all know that there are certain data that get lost when we try to broadcast music wirelessly.

But this is GOOd when you just want something to play your music loud. I love portable bluetooth speakers. But the set back is that they could have improved on the design. But I love the look of the subwoofer. If you want to check out the specs here is the list:

Power Output:

≥85dBA

Input sensitivity:

R/L: 450 mV±50mV SW: 100 mV±20mV

Mid-range & treble unit:

Weight:

Approx. 4.1kg/4.83kg net/gross

 

I love the lengthy satelite cables. You can really place them far apart and experience true stereo sound. For something under $65 this is good. I would recommend it for those who are doing house parties or just listening in the comfort of your bedroom. It also sounds great when you are watching TV shouws as it really delivers the your TV shows as realitically as possible.

Morph Speakers

Look at these goodies. I have been following these guys via Instagram for over a month now and they never fail to impress. These speakers are not meant for the loud stuff. But they get the job done when you want music playing while chilling down after a long day. They don’t have built in machines or amps. It is all about amplification by nature and craft. It’s all acoustics, no electricity.

What they do is this. They amplify the sound coming out of your gadget. We all know how these little speakers sound like. They are tinny and horrible especially when played loud. Morph Speakers capture the sound and amplify it using the wood’s acoustics. What comes out is a warm louder sound. Morph Speakers look attractive too.

The speakers work with iOS, android or tablet computers like the iPad.
