Bose QuietComfort QC20i headphones review

QC20i_lgQuite some time ago we got our hands on the Bose QuietComfort QC15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling headphones and I was hugely impressed with their performance in noise cancelling and they sounded amazing. However, I’m not a huge fan of over the ear style headphones and prefer a more discrete in-ear style.

So when Bose announced the new in-ear QC20′s I was keen to give them a try.

The Bose QuietComfort QC20 offers the same noise cancelling technology as the QC3 and QC10 but as the headphones themselves are smaller there isn’t room for the batteries and circuitry that fit in side the headphones of the other models. Instead the QC20 has an external control unit and battery pack that holds all the clever stuff. A small compromise and the battery has the convenience of being charges via a micro USB socket.

There are two slightly different QC20 models, the QC20 has an in-line microphone and two-button control which is designed for Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone devices, while the QC20i is for Apple devices and has the in-line microphone and a four-button remote. Both have play/pause controls but the Apple variant also has volume control buttons.

So lets start off with a look at what’s in the box and a closer inspection of the headphones…

Sony Smart Headset Pro: Review

Sony Smart Headset ProNot having used Bluetooth headphones before (I think) it kind of felt a bit weird at first having no wire running to my phone but I soon got used to the concept and now much prefer things this way.
The Sony Smart Headset Pro offers much more than just your average set of Bluetooth headphones. It has a whole host of features and the combination of these rolled into one neat package is awesome.

Read on to see if these are a worth while purchase.

Archos 3cam Vision review

Archos 3cam Vision review As with many others Archos is a name I am very familiar with in the world of MP3/4 players however these days it seems manufacturers really must go above and beyond the norm. In order to stand out from the ever-dominant fruit based market.

Archos Gen 8 coming soon

gen_8-0ed15

By the time I get back, and effectively use my Gen 7 Archos the 8th should be out. Wasting no time to perfect it’s previous efforts, Archos is throwing another iPad special out to do battle. Here is an article from French site ArchosLounge translated by Google.

In fact 6 new Internet Tablet Android should be launched for the generation 8. The screens would begin 3 inches to 10 inches. These tablets boarded Android. Coté technical features: speaking of the ARM Cortex processor at 800MHZ 1GHZ that we know well at Archos, the 3G OpenGL (3D acceleration) and even multitouch what would be a great first for Archos!

Price 100 dollars to 350 dollars.

Let there be no doubt that the players displayed on the slide will not all be appointed in this way (a single image shrunk) and also all these players will probably not have the same amount of involvement R & D Archos.Understand then, that some players will like it became a habit of Chinese Archos players have been using the strategy of "turnkey". Finally we shall see, the presence of ARM Cortex processor may augur good things …

SanDisk Sansa Clip+ review

SanDisk Sansa Clip+ review Can the SanDisk Sansa Clip+ really compete with the bigger manufacturers such as Apple with their iPod range?

This is the next in a line of smaller MP3 players created by SanDisk; this is an updated version of the previous version which was the Sansa Clip.

SanDisk as a company have been producing various types of memory product for many years and are synonymous with memory cards and USB storage devices. Ever since their first attempt at an MP3 player they have improved on design and quality and here at tracyandmatt.co.uk we’ve reviewed every model in the Sansa range in the past and have been generally impressed with what they have to offer and their value for money. Each new model and version has provided more features and has been a light improvement over the previous.

So does the Clip+ continue this tradition or can it no longer compete? Read on to find out.
