If you didn’t know many eSports players actually wear earbuds under their large headphones. Many of them actually prefer the earbuds as they are more lightweight and can sit in your ears for long period of time without irritation. At CES this year Mad Catz showed us their E.S. PRO 1 which are earbuds specifically designed for eSports players.

The original Tt eSPORTS Cronos gaming headset was released back in 2013, we were really impressed with it and since then Tt eSPORTS has released a few different versions of the headset.

It features a design much like the original Cronos but has a new open air and auto-adjusting headband that is made to fit your head perfectly. You have 40mm neodymium magnetic drivers as well as a retractable and bendable microphone. This headset is also made to work with multiple devices so you can use it with your PC, mobile device, tablet, etc. Let’s see what the Tt eSPORTS Cronos AD Gaming Headset is all about!
Audiofly has really impressed us with their in-ear headphones. We first took a look at their high-end AF78’s then moved down to the AF56’s and now we are taking a look at the AF45’s. These sit right above Audiofly’s entry-level AF33’s, so they are two steps down from the top of the line AF78’s. Audiofly tells us that the AF45’s deliver clear, honest tones. They have well defined mids that groove with a punchy bass and blend with stunning highs that chime like a church bell. At only $35 these fit into the budget of most people, let’s see if they are for you.
Not that long ago we took at a look at Audiofly’s AF78 In-Ear headphones and after our evaluation they were the best in-ear headphones we had ever used! Moving down the product stack today we have the AF56m’s, which sits in the mid-range of Audiofly’s offerings. Audiofly says this about the AF56m’s, “Packing our largest in-ear driver, the AF56 delivers uncompromising sound, pumping out astonishing clarity over the whole spectrum with a rich and detailed bottom end… all with a nostalgic smirk”. If these are anything like the AF78’s we have another great set of headphones from Audiofly. These are the “m” version of the headphones meaning they have an in-line microphone that will allow you to take calls. Let’s take a look and see if we have another winner from Audiofly!

To me in-ear headphones or earbuds are extremely important. Maybe I am different than most of you but when I’m working on the go on my laptop, listening to music on my iPhone, or playing a game on my tablet, in-ear headphones are my escape from the real world. Many people think all in-ear headphones are the same, but if you’ve had the chance to experience any higher-end models you know that is not true. I also have to say after experiencing very good in-ear headphones the ones that come with are portable devices don’t cut it. I’ve actually been using the same pair of in-ear headphones since 2011! Today I will be taking a look at Audiofly’s AF-78 Premium In-Ear Headphones. These are Audiofly’s most expensive in-ear headphones and should be great competition for my 4-year old go-to pair! Let’s get started!
Whether someone is at home, work, school, hotel, or sporting events, chances are they would love to be connected to Wi-Fi. Cellular networks are much better than they were years ago, but there’s still nothing like a quality Wi-Fi connection. Like every radio, Wi-Fi access points only have so much output power, and even at ideal power levels for an access point, it may not extend to the far reaches of an area. A common way to reach hard to reach areas is with an extender. D-Link Wi-Fi Audio Extender will help extend a 2.4GHz b/g/n Wi-Fi network and also has a little bonus, audio streaming!
