QuietOn Earplugs Review – Silence > Sound

Introduction – Within a hobby dedicated to the pursuit of sonic perfection, the importance of protecting one’s own hearing is sorely underappreciated. And beyond finding sound quality, sometimes it’s just as important to find some peace and quiet. QuietOn caught my attention with their Kick-started earplugs that boasted unrivalled silence through a combination of passive…

Archeer IP Camera Review – Safe and Sound

Introduction – While I started Everyday Listening as an audio review website, I occasionally like to share other technologies that have had an impact on my lifestyle. Archeer are a well-reviewed company that produce some really nice products and some really cheap products, generally mutually exclusive. While I admire their diverse range of products, I…

Spigen U100 Universal Kickstand Review

Introduction –  If anyone remembers the HTC Evo line of smartphones, you’ll probably recall that one of their most defining features was the inclusion of a kickstand. With smartphones becoming a lot more multi-media orientated, it’s easy to see how such a feature would prove useful. But if you don’t own one of these phones and perhaps…

Evoplus Q9 Review – The Cigarette Port Benchmark

Introduction –  With the advent of technologies such as arc lighters, the traditional 12v cigarette port in your car has less of a defined roll. In an ideal world, every car would replace that heating element with a device that sports two 2.4A USB charging ports along with its own integrated hands free headset. With such innovations in mind,…

Archeer 3.4A Dual Wall Charger Review

Introduction –  We live in an age where power boards have their own integrated USB ports and where 5-port chargers from brands such as Anker and Aukey have become a household stable.

Xiaomi Yeelight Lamp Review – Smart, Sensible & Satisfying

Introduction – Xiaomi are an interesting company, you might have heard about them through their renowned Piston earphones or perhaps their amazing smartphone sales in China.

Powercube Review – Compact Convenience

Introduction –  The power board is a modern necessity, you`ll struggle to find any household that doesn`t have at least one. In my case, I use an enormous 10 port board; it powers all my gadgets, but hardly with visual graceful and at times practicality. Some of my older devices, devices that require an adapter or even…

Yunteng Mini Tripod Quick Review – Portable Stabilization Hero

You`ve probably seen the terms OIS (optical image stabilization) or EIS (electronic/digital stabilization) mentioned in an advertisement for the latest and greatest flagship smartphone. It`s a big selling point, often vastly improving your portable photography; EIS is great for a bit of quick handheld video during the day whilst OIS is well suited towards low light photography, allowing…

Arc Lighter Review – Utility and Pyromania

Introduction –  Since I`m overseas, I thought I would take a quick break from audio and have a look at some of the more “fun” products the Thailand markets have to offer. So what I have here is an electric arc lighter derived from a much more expensive model that was Kickstarted not too long ago. Electric lighters are…

Chinese Tempered Glass Screen Protector – Subjective Experiment

Introduction – I was appalled; surrounded by just over a dozen friends and lacking adequate digits to count the number of cracked or severely scratched screens in the room. One of the only exceptions was my wet-soap-slick HTC M8 that had survived a good amount of waist-height drops due to its Nillkin glass protector. If you want to avoid such…

Imitation Satechi Watch Stand Quick Review – Really an Imitation?

I`ve become pretty fond of Aliepress as of late. It`s a more international branch of Alibaba that has rocketed to become the largest retailer in the world. As is usual with buying in China, there`s a lot of controversy about fakes. Some products are cheap imitations, some are actually rebranded or unbranded stock and some are…

Introduction – Xiaomi are one of the more innovative Chinese companies out there, providing a very Samsung-esque product range, from air purifiers to portable speakers to headphones.
