Creative Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200 Portable Wireless Speaker Review

How do you make a portable wireless speaker that can stand above all else? If you're Creative, you use your sound card audio processing technology pedigree to your advantage while also packing as much features into a small sized portable speaker as you possibly can. That result is the Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200, a feature-packed portable wireless speaker with an unbelievable amount of functionality at a relatively reasonable price. More is always better, right? And if more is what you want, you'll get what you ask for with Creative's AXX 200 including excessive amounts of Xs. Creative is billing the AXX 200 as an intelligent wireless sound system, but we're not so sure 'intiligent' is the right description. One thing certain though, we have never reviewed a wireless speaker quite like this on Gadgetmac. So let’s get started.

Unu Aero Wireless Charging Battery Case for iPhone 5s

A wireless charging iPhone 5s battery case? Why, yes please! You mean you can finally experience what it is like to wirelessly charge an iOS device and be protected with the convenience of a slim battery case? Stop the madness. And no, this isn't sarcasm but a genuinely thrilled response to what may be one of the most practical accessories made for the iPhone that we have ever come across. It's called the Aero, and it's made by a company called Unu. While not entirely distinct, the Aero is one of the very few wireless charging battery cases available for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 that packs a fairly large internal battery capacity (2000mAh mind you), into a very sleek and slim form factor. To some this may be a dream come true. To others however, the thought of adding bulk no matter how useful it may be is a ridiculous idea. So how good is the Aero as being both a battery case and a wireless charging gateway all in one? You can of course find out when you reach the full and very much comprehensive review down below.

Sony Gold PS4 Wireless Stereo Headset Review

Forget about that inadequate, tethered mono headset that came with your PlayStation 4 console. What you should really be using is Sony's Gold headset. The official PlayStation 4 wireless stereo headset from Sony that contrary to its promising name, isn't actually gold. That aside, the Gold headset is an reasonably priced and good looking wireless gaming headset that boasts 7.1 virtual surround sound, hidden noise-canceling mic, a built-in rechargeable battery, and voluptuously padded circumaural-sized ear cups with on-board audio controls – as well as a collapsible design that effectively turns this gaming headset into portable regular headphones you can use to listen to music. Sony's Gold is currently one of the very few headsets available for the PS4 that offers complete and total wireless freedom with wireless in-game chat support and voice commands. There's a lot more to cover, and we have all the details for you in the full and in-depth review after the break!

Lunatik Flak Jacket Sleeve for iPad mini Review

Lunatik is a brand name that has got one of the most uniquely designed accessories out there for Apple's portable devices. The company recently introduced its first ever accessory for the iPad that isn't a stylus but rather a protective sleeve. The Flak Jacket, an impossibly slim sleeve, is currently only made to fit the Retina iPad mini 2 as well as the original iPad mini with or without a Smart Cover attached to it. The concept couldn't be any more simple than that. However, Lunatik has managed to put its own creative take on the traditional sleeve concept along with a rather interesting mesh of materials. Hop past the break for a more detailed review on Lunatik's new iPad mini sleeve.

Harman Kardon Nova Review

Harman Kardon is a company that is in absolute no need for any introduction – has a new speaker system it wants to share with the world. Putting its interior on display using Harman Kardon's signature see-through speaker enclosure design sense, the Nova is a new triple-driver wireless Bluetooth-enabled speaker system that is essentially an all-in-one SoundSticks system jam-packed into a compact and versatile package that can be used in a regular desktop setup environment, or even as your living room entertainment speaker system while also allowing you to pair your smartphone, tablet or portable laptop in order to stream music wirelessly. But why should you spend more on the Nova when you can get Harman Kardon's famed SoundSticks Wireless 2.1 speaker system for less? Let's find out.

Grain Audio PWS Packable Wireless Speaker Review

Grain Audio is a new name in the audio industry. And like every other newcomer, Grain Audio wants to make it by being different. By standing out from what everyone else is doing. But how does a company achieve this seemingly arduous proclamation? The ambiguous answer is wood. Although you can't tell that from our photo above, we can assure you that wood is in fact the center of attention. Grain Audio wanted to make a portable wireless speaker that united the simplicity of contemporary lines with genuine wood as the speaker's enclosure for not only having excellent acoustic properties that improve audio quality, but obviously for its striking and unique appearance. The result is the Packable Wireless Speaker - or PWS for short. This is a wireless Bluetooth speaker that can very easily be taken outside or placed on a bookshelf where it'll feel like a part of your posh decor. As always, we've got a couple of portable speaker comparisons waiting for you down below where you'll also find the full review of Grain Audio's PWS!
