This piece will highlight some standouts. Chandler’s...

A whole new world of sounds and noises awaits you...

In the time I’ve been at B&H, I’ve been lucky enough to review many types of earphones from different manufacturers. Growing from my experience in Pro Audio, earphones are a bit of a passion of mine, because they are the crossroads between my love for audio and my love for consumer tech, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Shure’s new...

The frequencies they are a-changing. If you followed the unfolding drama of the FCC Incentive Auction, in 2016 and 2017, this comes as no surprise to you. If "FCC Auction" doesn't hold special meaning to you yet, you need to prepare for some important news. Anyone currently using wireless systems that operate in the 600 MHz band should pay close attention to avoid breaking laws and proper...

As the floodgates for completely wireless headphones (that is, without a cable connecting the earbuds like most models have) were burst open wide by a small company with a fruit logo last year, the consumer public has begun to see more and more models that offer the opportunity to cut all cords, not just the one connecting your headphones to your mobile device. Peruse the customer review sections...

Apple has a history of making bold moves in abandoning concepts that have long been considered standard for computing and home electronics. Be it FireWire, USB 3.0, or its own 30-pin connector, for better or worse (depending on who you ask), Apple has proven it will endure the grumbles of its loyal customer base in exchange for the company’s design vision. And with the announcement of the iPhone...

Like the Star Trek villain whose name is strikingly similar, the KANN Portable Music Player, from the folks at Astell&Kern, is engineered from the ground up to be better—an improvement on what we've come to expect (in this less nefarious case) from a digital music player.

I’ll begin this review with a disclaimer. I am a Millennial. Born in 1981, I’m an old Millennial, but they tell me that’s the year they started, so a Millennial nonetheless. When I’m not eating avocado toast instead of buying a home, killing the wine industry, hotels, the movie business, golf (sorry?), the 9 to 5 work week (you’re welcome), marriage, and unnecessarily exhaustive example listing,...

The idea of having a variety of microphone preamps at your fingertips is, relatively speaking, a more modern advent in recording. The “golden era” of making records saw engineers using the preamps found in the console in the studio, and didn’t give much thought to mixing a Neve sound on the overheads while using APIs on the snare and toms. As more and more engineers (pro and hobbyist alike)...
