Streaming media is nothing new. We have been watching YouTube and IPTV for years now, but over the past couple of years streaming video services have become extremely popular and are not just reserved for your PC or mobile device anymore. No one wants to sit around someone’s laptop to watch movies and other videos. Google has come up with a very simple and inexpensive way to bring all of that streaming content to any TV that has an HDMI port. The Google Chromecast is a simple HDMI dongle that allows you to stream content from any Google Chrome tab and from a wide variety of supported apps. Let’s jump in and see what this thing can do!
A little over a year ago we took a look at Pivos’s XIOS DS Media Player. This was Pivos’s first media player and while it was a great machine, it was more of a DIY system as its more or less an Android box that you had to customize yourself. The newer Pivos XIOS XS has its own TOFU Media Center GUI, which is a Pivos-customized version of XBMC that runs on Android 4.2.2. This makes the XIOS XS more user-friendly as you can pretty much boot it up and be ready to go, much like the other major media / streaming players out there. Let’s take a look…

LUXA2 has been releasing quality accessories at an accelerated pace. GroovyR is their latest Bluetooth speaker, but there’s a twist. Instead of being rectangular shaped like most Bluetooth speakers, GroovyR is a circle with a kick out stand that can hold your mobile phone, or allow GroovyR to be wall mounted. In addition to its unique appearance, it has a built-in microphone, 3.5mm input, and rechargeable battery. Let’s get dirty into the details.
I have been a fan of wireless headphones and headsets since the RF days. They are great because you are not actually connected to anything so you can get up and use the bathroom, go to the kitchen and make lunch or just lay down on the couch without having to lose the music you are listening to. With Bluetooth technology built into so many devices having wireless headsets is all but common now. Today we will be taking a look at the Xtreme H3 Bluetooth Headphones from Adesso. These headphones have an over the ear DJ style, pivoting earcups, 50mm Neodymium Magnetic Drivers and controls right on the left earcup. Let’s take a look!
Tt eSPORTS is Thermaltake’s gaming accessory line. With multiple headsets, mice, and keyboards, they are a major player in the professional gaming industry. Today we have their new headset, The Tt eSPORTS Verto. The 2 channel headset comes with synthetic leather ear pads and an auto adjusting headband. Branded as having “strong styling paired with comfort”, we decided to take a go at it.
Bluetooth wireless speakers have becoming extremely popular over the past couple of years. They can be used with multiple devices and are powerful enough to provide music for an entire room. They are also small enough that you can easily throw them in your backpack or laptop bag. LUXA2 has a new Bluetooth speaker in their GroovyW, but it is not your ordinary Bluetooth speaker. It comes with a removable wireless / wired charging station giving you 4000mAh of extra power for your portable device. The GroovyW also supports NFC for pairing, has touch panel controls, a microphone to take calls and comes with a companion App for both iOS and Android.
Music is such an important part of many people’s lives, as we speak I am listening to an awesome playlist that helps me concentrate when writing reviews. When you have great music you want to share it with your friends. Well Wicked Audio knows this and they have come up with the Heist, which is a set of earbuds that have an in-line audio connection so that you can connect another set of headphones or earbuds to share your music. While this is a great idea these earbuds cost under $20 so we will have to see just how well they sound.
