Shokz (formerly known as AfterShokz) launches OpenRun – A quick charging version of the Aeropex bone conduction sports headphones

From now on, AfterShokz will be officially re-named as Shokz. Shokz claims that the simplification of the brand name from AfterShokz to Shokz creates a shorter, more powerful word that is easier to remember and share, helping to spread the word and bring the benefits of open-ear listening to more sports enthusiasts. Apparently, shortening “AfterShokz” … Read more

Soundcore Frames take on Bose Frames & Huawei X Gentle Monster with more attractive pricing of £150 vs £240 vs £270

I reviewed the Bose Frames a bit over two years ago. At launch, Bose promised big things, with the initial branding being Bose AR which was supposed to feature augmented reality.

Nothing ear (1) Review – Ignore the hype, they are not some flagship killer, but these ANC earbuds are still good

The Nothing ear (1) earbuds have probably been the most marketed and hyped earbuds in existence. As much as I like Carl Pei and what he did with OnePlus I have found the whole Nothing campaign cringeworthy and annoying. Weekly press releases for minor details quickly became tiring. It wouldn’t have been bad if it … Read more
