Review: Sennheiser HD-1 in ear wireless headphones

 

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

Wireless Bluetooth headphones have become extremely popular of late because of improved sound quality, better connectivity, and longer battery life. At the high-end of the market, Sennheiser’s HD1 In-Ear Wireless headphones amp up the neckband style form factor with a lavish look and feel plus Sennheiser’s trademark high fidelity.

The future of wireless Bluetooth headphones is clearly where Apple’s AirPods are taking them. Individual ear pieces that work in concert without wires and which also offer access to your smartphone’s voice assistant and voice calls. Being able to quikly pair the headsets with various smartphones I review using NFC is nothing short of magical. If you've ever had to drill down the bluetooth settings menu on a phone, forget exisiting devices just to accomidate a new Bluetooth headset, you will love the one touch-pairing offered by the Sennheiser HD-1.

Review: Motorola Moto E4

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

The new Motorola Moto E4 is a bit of a nostalgia job. It is reminiscent of the first generation Moto X, a device that brought a lot of innovation, customization and laid the foundation for what Motorola has become as an Android OEM that can successfully differentiate itself in this super saturated market.

At 5-inches, the Moto E4 is sized just right for many users, it comes clad in durable and splash-resistant plastics. It has a removeable battery (a sizeable one at that), and it reflects a utilitarian yet uncompromising handset that's budget-focused but thoughtful nonetheless.
