You might not have heard of Doppler Labs before, but they happen to be a diverse group of creative thinkers, engineers, designers, and business leaders, which is also the very same team behind the acclaimed Here Active Listening System. This time around, the folks over at Doppler Labs have announced its flagship product, which will be known as the Here One. The Here One is very special since it lays claim to be the world’s first all-in-one wireless listening system.
Sporting a pair of wireless smart buds as well as a connected app that will function as a remote control for the buds, the Here One merges the functionality of conventional headphones as it streams music and wireless phone calls alongside Here’s proprietary smart listening and noise filtering technologies. It is equally at home when it comes to reducing noise (such as a crying baby), amplifying speech, accessing Siri or Google Now, streaming music, taking phone calls, or layering digital audio over real-world sound (stream Spotify on a run safely aware of what’s around you), as the Here One does all of that without missing a beat.
It can be said that the Here One is the evolution of Here Active Listening, Doppler Lab’s “concept car.” Available within a limited production run of 10,000 units, Here Active Listening has its focus on augmenting real-world sound, mainly for live music experiences. Ever since the Here Active Listening was introduced, demand has surged with close to 100,000 people have joined the waitlist for a chance to purchase the product.
Some of the select Here One features will include true wireless streaming capability, the ability to answer phone calls from your buds themselves, smart noise filters that does away with unwanted noise so that you can carry on with your conversation uninterrupted, speech amplification for crystal clear communication, and even transform real-world sound using volume, EQ, and sound effects.
Those who are interested will be able to place a pre-order for the Here One for $299 a pop, with shipping set to commence this holiday season.

When it comes to high end and high quality speakers, it is rather difficult to move away from brand names such as Bose. After all, they have come up with their fair share of quality products for years, and now we have something that might just pique the interest of your little ones without compromising on quality. Enter the BOSEbuild, which is a hands-on exploration project that falls under Bose’s new “build-it-yourself” category which focuses specifically on kids.
It goes without saying that BOSEbuild’s first product is the Speaker Cube, where this complete kit will allow kids to explore the science of sound as they go about constructing a Bose Bluetooth speaker along the way. Of course, their creativity is much appreciated to personalize it with various colors and covers according to their liking.
Bob Maresca, CEO and president of Bose, shared, “Dr. Bose was fascinated with electric trains when he was very young. He learned how they worked by taking them apart and putting them back together, and he had that same insatiable curiosity throughout his entire life. That spirit is still at the heart of Bose. And it’s a great example of what we’d like BOSEbuild to offer – fun and relatable ways for kids to make something they really want and can use for years to come, while learning about the incredible science and technology behind it.”
This is one complete kit which will allow the little ones to explore the science of sound by making a Bose Bluetooth speaker, and those who are interested will be able to pick it up for $149 a pop. Of course, it is not as simple as clicking two Duplo or Lego bricks together, which is why the ideal age for the BOSEBuild Speaker Cube happens to be for ages 8 and older.
High-quality parts and materials are used for durability, and the instructions involve discovery and education. It is similar to any other Bose Bluetooth speaker out there, as it pairs to any smartphone or tablet, so that your children can stream their favorite songs in the blink of an eye.

DSLRs are no longer in vogue as mirrorless or system cameras do happen to do a very good job at snapping photos and immortalizing memories, not to mention being a fraction of the weight with a size that cannot be argued against. The range of lenses for such cameras continue to grow, and here we are with Fujifilm’s latest foray into the world of mirrorless cameras in the form of the Fujifilm X-T2.
The Fujifilm X-T2 has been touted to be the ultimate mirrorless camera that will make use of advanced technologies in order to achieve premium image quality, outstanding operability and beautiful design reminiscent of traditional cameras.
What kind of value does the Fujifilm X-T2 bring to the table? For starters, it will merge the sensor and image processing engine that was developed by Fujifilm, alongside an ultra-sharp range of FUJINON lenses for excellent image resolution. Fujifilm’s color-reproduction technology are said to offer images of unparalleled quality and realism, as it goes about recording a subject’s textures, three-dimensional feel and even the atmosphere surrounding it.
Not only that, the X-T2’s compact and lightweight camera body is a real trooper just in case your photography adventures bring you to far flung places, as it is dust-resistant, water-resistant and capable of operating at temperatures as low as -10°C, now how about that? Chances are you would need to look after yourself better than the X-T2 itself in such challenging conditions. It has an autofocus and electronic viewfinder performance that are substantially improved, making it more adaptable than ever before when it comes to capturing sports events or wildlife photography.
In addition, the Fujifilm X-T2 is the first model in the X Series that supports 4K video recording, and it does so without aplomb since its design ensures that it operates with maximum cooling efficiency. Expect the Fujifilm X-T2 to arrive later this September with a sticker price of $1,899 a pop for the body and an 18mm-55mm lens.

Speakerphones do come in handy if you happen to be a busy bee all day long, and have plenty of phone calls to attend to and yet would need to use both of your hands for whatever task you’re involved in. After all, not only do speakerphones let you keep in touch with the caller, it also makes traveling safer, especially when you are the one behind the wheel. Hammacher has what it claims to be the best Car Speakerphone that will retail for $99.95 a pop.
Why did this particular car speakerphone pick up “The Best” rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute? For the simple reason – it delivered the clearest audio when tested. This is made possible thanks to the Best model’s dual microphone that does away with background sounds courtesy of its noise reducing technology. Being different from lesser models that caused muffled sounds or echoes, The Best unit’s three-speaker virtual surround sound offered audio that was deemed to be as clear as listening to the radio. One can mount it to a visor and have it connect automatically to your iPhone or Android handset via Bluetooth when you enter the vehicle. The included software will enable one to make and answer phone calls using voice commands and an FM transmitter leaves the door open for one to stream phone calls, podcasts, music, and GPS directions via the car’s stereo speakers. It takes two hours to juice it up with the included USB charger, where a full charge delivers 14 hours of talking time or 960 hours of standby time.

Gamers have always wanted nothing but the very best that they can buy, and this would include monitors. Some gamers are fortunate enough to be able to afford multiple screen setups, while others are perfectly happy with a single large display. Regardless, you will never be able to obtain the viewing size of a projector, and Casio has just the thing for those who would want to enjoy a big screen gaming experience without having to burn a hole in their pockets.
Regardless of the kind of video game genre that you like to indulge in, ranging from a MMORPG to a First Person Shooter, or even a Real Time Strategy title, all of those are instantly a whole lot more enjoyable when you see it on the large screen (or as far as your living room wall is able to accommodate).
Joe Gillio, Senior Director Strategic Planning and Marketing, Casio’s Business Projector Division, has this to say, “In the gaming industry, it’s clear that enthusiasts are passionate about creating a complete experience to truly immerse themselves in the game. We want to ensure that gamers are able to have great visuals and Casio projectors, such as our new XJ-F210WN, are the ideal tools due to their innovative features, bright images and affordable price.”
The Casio XJ-F210WN will be part of the award-winning Advanced Series line of projectors, where it will boast of the entire slew of features and performance that have made Casio’s customers happy all this while. The Casio XJ-F210WN will arrive in a compact form factor, not to mention at a more affordable price point to boot. It will be powered by Casio’s LampFree technology, which means you no longer have to scratch your head or worry about replacing expensive and hazardous mercury lamps, making each purchase more cost effective and safer for the environment.
Not only that, the XJ-F210WN will also boast of a 20,000-hour estimated operating life and consumes half the amount of power per unit compared to traditional lamp-based projectors. So far, power consumption at the brightest setting is only 180 watts and eco modes will be able to further reduce power consumption by up to 50%. In addition, its dust resistant design is made possible by structuring the internal components into a trio of blocks so that it can shield the optical block from dust.
This WXGA model will achieve its maximum brightness in as fast as five seconds from the time it is turned on, and can be powered off immediately with just a touch of the button. A couple of HDMI terminals as well as a USB power supply round off its connectivity options. Any takers?

The world does not consist of solely your city, state or country. We are living in a global village in the here and now, and hence, it is far from surprising to see the likes of Focal, a leading French speaker and headphone manufacturer, introduce not one or two, but rather, three pairs of premium headphones. These three will be known as the Utopia, Elear and Listen.
Focal’s high-end headphones did not come about by chance. Rather, they were the result of more than 35 years of development and manufacturing of loudspeakers in France, and Utopia is one of those models where no expense was spared during its development in the quest for the ultimate listening experience.
What is so special about Utopia that will hopefully live up to its name in terms of performance? It is the first full-range loudspeaker in a pair of headphones in the world. In other words, this open-back reference headphones have been specially to offer the ultimate listening experience for even the most critical audiophile, where it makes it far more than just an ordinary pair of headphones.
Focused on the ideals of perfection, no stone was left unturned in the creation of Utopia, where even the raw materials were also looked into, in addition to the construction of the drivers, the padding used in the ear cups, and the leather used to wrap them for the ultimate comfort. Heck, even the quality of the cable and packaging used were inspected so that Utopia is given a premium look and feel.
Its driver will make use of beryllium that is 30 times higher cost than gold, where it will boast of a completely open front and open back design. When used alongside a proper headphone amplifier/DAC, it will feature a frequency response from 5Hz to 50kHz, and since the driver assembly is so light, it is able to vibrate 50,000 times per second, resulting in some of the most airy, open-sounding, yet sonically accurate music in any genre.
The Utopia is set to retail for a whopping $3,999, while the lesser Elear is going for $999 a pop with the new Listen headphones being the most affordable of the lot, sporting an asking price of $249.
A turntable might be seen by some to be an antique, while for the others, it might be a plaything for folks who have some extra dough to splash at the end of each month. After all, vinyl records are not all that cheap in the first place, and they do tend to wear out with constant listening, so you might want to use them sparingly. Well, a device that does CD playback and has USB compatibility is extremely common and affordable, but if you would like to go all out, then the $94,000 Swiss Engineered Quad Calibrated Turntable might be just the right thing for you.
This happens to be a turntable that provides vinyl enthusiasts the pleasure of listening to LPs using one of four precisely calibrated tone arms. It has been specially crafted in Bern, Switzerland, where it is composed of a magnetically suspended aluminum platter that is nestled within a special wooden cylinder, ensuring it delivers a stable, silent base that will remain unaffected by environmental vibration. A quartet of smaller cylinders will surround the platter of each house, letting you listen to different styles of music with whichever tonearm provides your preferred sound quality. Not only that, there is also integrated damping technology that does away with the troublesome sonic aberrations generated by common consumer models, as each cylinder sports a trio of adjustable steel feet that enable precisely calibrated height placement for the central platter and four tonearms. Definitely a purchase for the filthy rich!

The camera will include not one, but two cards (one SD and one microSD card) to help you save space while ensuring that all important footage will be protected. Sporting a combined storage capacity of 512GB, you as the driver will never need to worry about running out of space ever again.
