BOSE NOISE-MASKING SLEEP BUDS

My sleep is absolute garbage. This is an ongoing struggle of mine, and of many adults, and has been for the last several years of my life. Anxiety, depression, a questionable childhood, a lack of routine exercise, a lack of a balanced and healthy diet…an unfathomable things are often blamed (credited) for poor sleep, and...

SONY WH-XB700 EXTRA BASS WIRELESS HEADPHONES

There are two things that are certainly true, albeit not necessarily correlated to one another, about the reviews I post.  First, my most heavily reviewed item is audio--headphones, speakers, earbuds--and all consumer-grade equipment, at that.  Second, Sony seems to be among the most frequently reviewed brand of products on the site.  And generally speaking, I'm...

Much like any other product that I review a lot of, I find myself gravitating toward one or two products as my "daily driver" products, if you want to call them that.  Most tech...

SONY SRS-XB31 WIRELESS SPEAKER

I think that finding a perfect Bluetooth speaker is a bit of a white whale.  And, even if I found my white whale, it may be entirely different from anyone else’s—which makes reviewing these things both difficult and sometimes frustrating.   For instance, last June I got my hands on a speaker from a company,...

APPLE HOMEPOD

The HomePod was announced in June 2017 in what many thought was a truly lackluster introduction.  Apple’s usual promises of “this is going to be the greatest thing of all the things we’ve ever thing-ed” (not an exact quote, for sure) didn’t feel any different from their typical announcements; because Apple is often criticized as...
