With these unobtrusive technologies available, you might think that wearing a hearing aid around your neck would be the least desirable of options.

The around-the-neck design of the new LG Tone Ultra Bluetooth headphones

LG has stuck with the unique design of its original LG Tone Bluetooth headphones with its latest model, the LG Tone Ultra. Like its predecessor, the new model features an around-the-neck design but adds ambient noise reduction (ANC) technology to cut down on background noise when taking calls or listening to music.  Read More

Glass has been in a closed beta for 'Explorers' since 2012, but will they cross over into ...

One of the perks of writing about technology and innovation is the opportunity to get your hands on all sorts of new products, usually made by folks with a vision of how their new gadget will change the world. The downside of this privilege, however, is the knowledge that many perfectly fantastic products will never become household names, no matter how deserving they might be. With that in mind, I wanted to pay tribute to five products that, unfortunately, I fear only total nerds like myself will ever truly fall in love with.  Read More

The DacMagic XS USB headphone amp from Cambridge Audio

It doesn't seem too long ago that a quality headphones amplifier was the size of a chunky paperback novel, and would occupy so much space in a laptop bag that it would probably get left behind more often than not.

Though many smartphones are also very capable music players, there are some of us who prefer to listen to tunes from a dedicated device while out and about.

Gizmag reviews the waterproof iPod Shuffle and Swimbuds headphones from Underwater Audio

We've seen some interesting waterproof music players before from companies like Sony and Finis, but Apple hasn't created its own iPod aimed at swimmers just yet. That's why Underwater Audio developed its own process for waterproofing the iPod Shuffle, turning an already sleek gadget into a more durable MP3 player. As someone who's been forced to retire an iPod Nano in the past after a mishap involving a kitchen sink, I was certainly curious to see if the upgraded iPod could live up to its claims.  Read More

The Sound Band doesn't use speakers to play back sound

Generally, when you think of headphones, you imagine small speakers that either sit in or over your ear. The Sound Band is different, as it doesn't feature any speakers at all. Instead, it uses surface sound technology, which means the user's ears are left open to take in the sounds around them.  Read More
