A Wearable Subwoofer: Lofelt Basslet Hands On @ CES 2017

Consumer headphones and phone audio have improved significantly over recent years, but the one thing we can’t recreate is the sensation of listening to live music or music on good speakers, the vibrations in the air that we feel throughout the body. The folks at Lofelt are looking to fix that with a crazy little subwoofer worn on your wrist. Juan had a chance to sit down with the Founder and CEO of Lofelt, Daniel B├╝ttner to chat music and get a first look (and feel) at their Basslet wearable subwoofer.

Blue Microphones bringing higher fidelity to Mobile Audio with Mo-Fi

blue microphones mo-fi headphones teaseBlue Microphones is enjoying something of a tech re-branding. From traditional recording solutions, to USB mic powerhouse. Now they’re tackling mobility.

Details are slim, and this video is barely a tease, but the word at Blue is headphones. Mo-Fi is a move towards higher fidelity mobile audio, and if anyone can shake up a market, Blue can. Considering the EQ tweaks and color Blue uses on their recording kit, their headphones could provide some interesting competition to the current crop of designer ‘phones like Beats By Dre, or the Nokia Purity.

Can we at least give Blue a thumbs up for using the accurate term to describe high quality audio? I’m so happy to see them not fall prey to calling their product “High Definition”. Long live “Fidelity”!
