The Bose SoundLink Micro, measuring a mere 3.9 x 3.9 x 1.4 inches and weighing about 10 ounces, is definitely a small gadget with a lot of power. The price tag, coming is $109.95 may be a bit high but it is true to Bose’s product pricing and what you get will certainly not disappoint. You can choose from three different colors: black, blue or orange and rest assured that the silicone material the speaker comes incased is it durable, even waterproof!
Any Bose-speaker enthusiast can vouch for the sound quality you will obtain from a Bose Speaker, and the SoundLink Micro, although quite small, is no exception! Your bass-bumping tracks will sound great on the device and you should not run into any distortion while increasing the volume. The fact that it is 1PX7 Certified, which means it is able to be work under a meter of water for up to 30 minutes, equates to the SoundLink Micro having the ability to be with you anywhere, anytime. It includes a “tear resistant” rubber band that allows you to fasten the speaker onto a backpack, purse, handles bars, or similar object.
The only two things we would have liked to see in this small powerhouse speaker is a better battery life, as the battery life is rated to last for about 6 hours and an option to hook up an auxiliary cord. But these are in no way dealbreakers! The battery life is easily known as the body of the speaker shows the readout through the LEDs housed inside the device and it is also just as easy to find out battery life through the Bose Connect mobile app (available for Android and iOS), which also includes many other features.
Bose knows a thing or two about creating good speakers and size did not compromise their ability in creating something great. You can be confident in knowing your purchase is good if you go for the Bose SoundLink Micro. We know we’d definitely enjoy it!
At the end of this year, you won’t have to give up Amazon Fire TV just because it doesn’t support 4K HDR videos! Amazon has two new Fire TVs coming out late 2017, according to a report on Sep. 11 by AFTVnews. Both models will be capable of handling 4K HDR video at 60 frames per second.
The first new model, positioned as mid-tier, will fill the gap between the existing Fire TV Stick and a new top-tier model. It uses a dongle form factor that hangs off a permanently attached HDMI cable, similar to the Google Chromecast.
The new top-tier Fire TV is said to be a cube shaped set-top box that will become Amazon’s new flagship model. AFTVnews said that this new model is equipped with far-field microphones, an integrated speaker, as well as an LED light bar. It has the same functionality as an Amazon Echo Dot for hands-free Alexa interaction and control. It also has an IR emitter to allow for controlling televisions and other A/V equipment.
The new mid-tier Fire TV will most likely be announced this month and released next month with a pricing point between $60 and $80 while the new top-tier model will be announced soon after and probably cost consumers around $100.
If you are recently considering purchasing a mini projector, you won’t want to miss this! Last month, AAXA Technologies announced its release of the P300 Neo Pico Projector – a revision of its most popular P300, which was rated as the Best Portable Mini Projector of 2015 by the Wirecutter. The new model comes in with more lumens and higher resolution while reducing size and weight by over 40%.
Like most models of AAXA Technologies, the P300 Neo is an ultra-compact projector – measuring just 5.5” x 3.5” x 1.2” which is about the size of two smartphones stacked together. In spite of its portable size, this model can deliver 420 LED Lumens of brightness at a native resolution of 720P HD (1280X720). Powered by a 30,000 hour LED light source, the P300 Neo can display up to 120” images in dark areas.
