The Apple AirPods are overrated. These are the best truly wireless headphones you can buy and are great alternatives to the AirPods.
Massdrop has been killing it with their headphone collaborations lately. The Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 6XX are, in my opinion, the best deal in audio right now (can’t wait for the HD 6XX drop? Get the Sennheiser HD 600, which are the same headphone). The company also has me drooling over the Focal Elex, but… Continue reading Massdrop x NuForce EDC3 headphone review: Balance of performance and price
When Motorola first announced the Moto Z and its modular attachments, I was excited. I loved the modular phone concept that LG started with the G5. But unlike the G5, the Moto Z could swap modules without shutting down the phone. I was baffled at how clunky LG’s modular design looked next to Motorola’s. However,… Continue reading Moto Z review: Do we need modular phones?
I really hoped Apple would turn Beats around and make truly great sounding audio gear. The Beats Pill+ has improved tremendously over the original, but it's still not enough. I found the original Beats Pill to sound thin, even though it had a strong bass emphasis. The Pill+ improves on the Pill's sound in… Continue reading Beats Pill+ review: Improved sound but still a poor value
The OnePlus 3 has been on the market for a couple of months now, but finding a good case is still a chore. In order to protect my phone, I settled with getting a generic clear TPU case for the OnePlus 3 off of Amazon. The company name, Love Ying, should have been a red flag.… Continue reading The best OnePlus 3 clear case
The stock exhaust on the BRZ sounds asthmatic. You can tell Subaru and Toyota wanted the car to be a relatively quiet daily driver but for us enthusiasts want a bit more sound. Subaru and Toyota engineered a sound pipe that connects to the intake tube to pump induction noise into the cabin but sounds… Continue reading Review: Nameless Axelback with 5″ offset mufflers for BRZ/FR-S/GT86 [UPDATE w/ video]
My stainless steel WC Lathe Werks shift knob combined with the hot California sun add up to create a molten ball of pain when left baking outside. I love the weight, look, and feel of my metal shift knob but its biggest downside is that it gets too hot to the touch if I… Continue reading This Pokéball shift knob cover will make me the coolest kid at the car meet
The new LEGO Ferrari F40 model did justice to the car I obsessed over as a kid. At the time of its release, Ferrari was known for its V12 engines, which made the twin-turbo V8 F40 a bit of an oddball. The car made 471 HP and only weighed 2,400 lbs, which is about 300… Continue reading The LEGO Ferrari F40 is a masterpiece
There are a ton of ways to mount your smartphone in your car from suction cups to vent mounts. However, not all vent mounts work in every car and suction cups may fall off when the temperature changes. The best solution for me has been CD slot car mounts, which cannibalize the CD slot… Continue reading Mountek nGroove vs. Koomus CD-Eco: comparison and review
The Subaru BRZ isn’t perfect. I’ve already written about the 12 most frustrating things about the BRZ but after three years of ownership, I’ve never been tempted to sell or trade in the car. The BRZ has always been a controversial car with critics lamenting its lack of power and its fans lauding its… Continue reading 11 reasons why I still love my Subaru BRZ
I love my Subaru BRZ but it’s not without its frustrations. This shouldn’t be much of a surprise since the car is a cheap Japanese sports coupe after all. There are always compromises that manufacturers make when creating a car. Family sedans compromise fun and handling for luxury and utility. Sports cars compromise utility and… Continue reading 12 most frustrating things about the Subaru BRZ
The Apple iPad is now a legitimate productivity machine but that wasn't always the case. When the first iPad debuted, I remember explaining to customers at the campus computer store where I worked why they were better off buying a laptop. But times have changed and my iPad is now powerful enough for my needs… Continue reading Review: Anker TC930 Ultra-Slim keyboard for the iPad Air 2 and Air
