KitSound Reunion Speakers – A review of some great old school speakers

We like a good set of speakers here at CoolSmartphone, and personally I’ve been impressed with KitSound speakers in recent years. So I was chuffed when the Kitsound Reunion Speakers arrived on my desk. Recently I was fortunate enough to review the Kitsound Parallax speakers, and they are …

Kitsound Parallax Speakers – A Review – Versatile and Sweet

I like Kitsound products and I always have, I find that their bassy sound and value for money hits a sweet spot for me. Normally I tend to use their Bluetooth speakers or headphones, but as you may have read I’ve recently discovered eSports on the iPhone and …

MWC – Alcatel goes back to the old days with the A5 LED

Standing out from the crowd here in Barcelona is particularly difficult. I’m not talking about the stands, because it’s already tricky enough in that respect. Money (a lot of it, think millions of pounds) buys you big floor space and a bigger impact. Some companies resort to sweets, …

Sonos hike prices in UK due to Brexit

Unfortunately the UK is in for a rough ride in the next few months as the decline of the pound starts to affect prices of just about everything. We have already seen price jumps from OnePlus, steep hikes from Apple, and now Sonos are increasing their prices considerably. …

Vodafone knock half off new wireless kit

If you fancy getting some last minute stocking fillers and also want to save a bit of cash, have a look at the Vodafone Accessories website. At the moment they have half off selected headphones and speakers, including these three devices below. First up are the iFrogz Freerein …

Edifier R1700BT Bluetooth speakers review

Holy hell. I think something just happened in the trouser department. These are Bluetooth speakers like I’ve never seen or heard before. I mean sure, you know deep down that the wood enclosing these speakers is 100% MDF, but it looks lovely and these speakers would sit beautifully …

Otone Varsa Review

Looking for a soundbar? This is one, but there’s a secret surprise too. It’s the Otone Varsa and it packs two 10W speakers producing (duh – obviously) 20W. It’ll sit under your TV or PC and has audio fed in from a 3.5mm audio plug. Sitting as a …

Spotify Connect, now on Android too

If you love your Spotify thing but want to stream your music over WiFi then… well, don’t. Just get yourself a Bluetooth speaker or something. What? What’s that? You’ve got yourself some flashy WiFi speakers from Pioneer or Bang & Olufsen? Pardon? You’ve got yourself a posh-looking Samsung …

Bluetooth speakers, but with a whole lot more

Bluetooth is OK, but you might still want FM radio and that utterly rubbish “DAB” system that sometimes decides to work. Now a British-based developer has released a couple of rather beautiful radio systems. They have Bluetooth connectivity, FM radio, DAB and and dual alarm. Not only that, …

MWC – Samsung accessories

You know what it’s like. You walk into an electrical store and you want to get some speakers to work with your new Samsung Galaxy SIII or Galaxy Note. But when you look around the store all you can find are iPhone docks, speaker docks and random Bluetooth …

Review – Aporto Speakers from OTONE Audio

A few weeks ago we received these rather lovely speakers from OTONE. They’re “modular” speakers and actually disconnect from the main unit. Using retractable cabling, you can position the speakers some distance apart for the full stereo effect. It’s simple and easy to get going. The speakers sit …

Review – Pocket Boom Portable Vibration Speaker

I love gadgets. Any kind of gadget pretty much, and I’m interested. So imagine when I saw the blurb for this little box of tricks..  “Turn anything into a speaker!” It works too.. which is pretty crazy. The quality of the sound depends what you’ve “turned into” a …

Hardware Review – Android Bluetooth Soundbox with Hands-Free

I should start this review by saying I’m not a big fan of Bluetooth speakers. They usually sound awful and it’s usually more practical to carry round something larger rather than sacrifice sound quality. I was pleasently surprised with this one though. The sonic performance of this green little fella is not …
