iEdge® USB to Lightning Cable iPhone iPod iPad 10 Ft E-330 Review

The ten foot long iEdge® USB to Lightning Cable costs less than we’ve ever found for an Apple-compatible sync and charge cable. While there’s no indication on the packaging that this accessory is MFi (Made for iPhone/iPad/iPod) certified, our tests found it nonetheless, to be a highly reliable, moderately fast charge, medium-current handling cable. We paid $3.99 for ours at … Continue reading iEdge® USB to Lightning Cable iPhone iPod iPad 10 Ft E-330 Review



Review: IXCC 6 Foot Lightning Cable Cord, MFi Certified, Sync and Charge for iPhone, iPad, and iPod

The IXCC 6 foot lightning cable surprises the inexpensive sync and charge cable market.  Given its quality and MFi (Made for iPhone/iPad/iPod) certification, this cord tops expectations. We paid $7.99 for it at Amazon.com. So, this costs way less than original Apple cords.  The extra couple feet here makes the IXCC 6 foot lightning cable lots cheaper per … Continue reading Review: IXCC 6 Foot Lightning Cable Cord, MFi Certified, Sync and Charge for iPhone, iPad, and iPod



Sony Make Believe MDR-EX10LP In-Ear Rock’n Buds Earphones Headphones Review

The Sony Make Believe MDR-EX10LP Earbuds excel in their punchy midrange, but suffer from weak bass as well as treble response. The 9mm dome drivers here, while acceptable at reproducing the musical highs without seeming to retreat from the task, the lows, due to the pointlessly small size of these buds, do indeed suffer. What you gain in miniaturization, you lose in richness of … Continue reading Sony Make Believe MDR-EX10LP In-Ear Rock’n Buds Earphones Headphones Review



OtterBox Defender Case for iPad Review

We’ve tested the OtterBox Defender Series protective cases for the Apple iPad Air and iPad Mini 2 tablet computers. In one sentence:  OtterBox cases cost more than any other mobile device case that we’ve encountered, but they’re of the highest overall quality as well.  Though OtterBoxes, we feel, are excessively priced, since they’re made of … Continue reading OtterBox Defender Case for iPad Review



Apple Earpods Earbuds Earphones for iPod iPhone Review

Bought another set of natural-sounding in ear earphones that are a marked improvement over the Apple stock iPod / iPhone / iPad earbuds that came with iPods prior to 2014; those being the   Apple Earpods Earbuds. At roughly $30 per pair, these earphones cost about the same as Apple’s earlier stock model, but feature significantly improved sound and fit.  After having … Continue reading Apple Earpods Earbuds Earphones for iPod iPhone Review



Apple Earphones Earbuds Headphones Volume Control Gripe

Our one BIG complaint about the Apple Headphones Volume Control as it functions on the various generations of the  iPod Touch, is that the UP and DOWN increments that the volume control keys generate when pressed are too big. In version 5.1 of the Apple firmware (the latest version supported on our Touch from 2010), you only get 16 steps to go … Continue reading Apple Earphones Earbuds Headphones Volume Control Gripe



Review: Auvio® 3300465 Kids Music In Ear Earbuds Headphones for iPhone, iPod, and iPad

Definitely for the novice listener, and not the audiophile.  In this Auvio® earbuds review, I feel guilty about saying that these  Auvio® 3300465 Good Kids Music In Ear Earbuds Headphones with Carrying Case  are high fidelity. The treble frequencies are muted and distorted, and the bass is weak, with some of the lowest bass notes in my favorite songs … Continue reading Review: Auvio® 3300465 Kids Music In Ear Earbuds Headphones for iPhone, iPod, and iPad



Axcel USB Lightning Sync & Charge iPhone iPad iPod Cable Review

The Axcel USB Lightning Sync & Charge iPhone and iPad Cable line is certainly not the cheapest data and charging cable available.  We paid nearly $22 for ours at Lowe’s, which is roughly akin to the pricing on similar Apple-manufactured lightning port cords. But its construction, larger size of connectors, and thicker wires make this Axcel charger … Continue reading Axcel USB Lightning Sync & Charge iPhone iPad iPod Cable Review
