Start Every Day With This Great Sounding Cup Of Music [Review]

DSC05213

Tiny portable bluetooth speakers are all the rage these days, and we’ve seen our fair share of them.

Music Cup by Music Cup
Category: Bluetooth Speakers
Works With: iPhone, iPad, any audio
Price: $39.99

Trouble is, the smaller the speaker, the worse it sounds. Honestly, if your bluetooth speaker sounds worse than the built-in speakers on your iPhone, you’ll likely not want to go through the trouble of even pairing the thing up.

The Music Cup bluetooth speaker is small, shaped like a mug, and it sounds pretty darn good.

Heard App Lets You Record Sound From Five Minutes Ago

Unlike pictures, sound is ambient – you can hear it even when you’re not listening “at” it the same way you have to look at something to see it. And this goes for recording, too. While you have to point a camera at a thing to tape it, you can record sound even if the mic is in your pocket.

And this in turn makes possible an app like Heard, which lets you record any sound you hear, even after you hear it.

Blue Microphones New Nessie Mic Is Loaded With Good Stuff for Beginners

blue-nessie-1

Nestled amid the gentle rolling hills of my old stomping ground of Westlake Village sits Blue Microphones, little more than a half hour north of Los Angeles. There’re actually two lakes in the area: beautiful Lake Sherwood, and the grubby, man-made boating pond of Westlake Lake. Neither, to my recollection, has ever had a reported sighting of a monster.

Blue Microphones’s new USB mic is named “Nessie,” which I guess means now the area has at least one lake monster. Only in this case it’s the good, super-friendly kind of monster.

Logitech UE Bluetooth Boombox: Lusciously Hot And Really, Really, Unbelievably Good [Review]

We’re very stingy with our five-star ratings, and it’s even more rare for us to slap all five onto a gadget.  So pay attention — because today we’re awarding the full five stars to the Logitech UE Boombox ($250), a portable, battery-equipped, eight-driver Bluetooth speaker that sounds absolutely astounding. In fact, the Boombox does a better job of rocking out than some non-portable, home systems costing much more.

Blue Microphones Releases the Spark Digital, Its First Serious, Studio Microphone for The iPad

Blue Microphones Releases the Spark Digital, Its First Serious, Studio Microphone for The iPad

Just like Blue Microphone’s non-digital Spark, the new, Digital Spark microphone has been put together with an armful of we’re-not-playing-around components and features. Things like a beefed-up condenser capsule, a Focus selector that toggles between a low-frequency bias and a detail bias, and an adjustable desk stand with shock mount. But this Spark is built for iPads (or iPhones); though its USB connector means it’ll work just fine with your MacBook Pro, iMac, Sony Vaio, Samsung Galaxy Tab or anything else with a USB input.
