Review: Kanex GoPower Watch Stand with Wireless Charging Base

I’ll admit that I am extremely late to the wireless charging bandwagon. For various reasons, it just hasn’t seemed essential or at least worth the cost to invest in one. However, when I was offered the opportunity to take a look at the GoPower Watch Stand with Wireless Charging Base for review, I was intrigued to learn about what I’ve been missing.

PSA: Please Don’t Share Your AirPods

Ok, I do understand that Apple is somewhat guilty for planting this bug in the public consciousness, thanks to their Holiday AirPods commercial back in 2017. Still, just because Apple shows people swapping buds to make a connection doesn’t mean it’s a good idea.

Review: AirSnap Pro from Twelve South

 

I’ve kept my AirPods and now my AirPods Pro with me pretty much all the time from the moment I got them until now. (Well, except for that time that I lost my 1st gen buds, but that’s besides the point. And if you’ve owned AirPods, you’ve probably had a similar experience, or at least a scare, right?) That’s really the beauty of such a portable set of wireless earbuds.

One of the downsides of this extreme portability of the AirPods and AirPods Pro is that the case is inevitably going to get beaten up and show some wear. For example, I give you one of my first articles on the AirPods back in May of 2017:

As I feared, the AirPods case is a bit of a scuff magnet

Yep.

What is the Ceiling for Apple’s Wearables Business?

If you follow Apple, then you likely know how popular the Apple Watch and the AirPods are today. My how things have changed. Both of these devices started their lives as targets of criticism and the butts of numerous jokes. Do you remember when the Watch was slow and didn’t do anything useful and the AirPods were the ugliest things ever? Fast-forward to today and the Apple Watch is the smartwatch market and AirPods set the standard for convenience and portability for wireless earbuds. Again, my how times have changed.

AirPods Pro Off To a Roaring Start

According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple’s new AirPods Pro have already exceeded projected demand so far since their launch a month ago. So much so, in fact, that production lines have been strained and stock has been low since launch. Debby Wu of Bloomberg goes as far as saying that demand has been “much higher” than originally estimated.

Taking the New Beats Solo Pro Headphones For a Spin


As I said in one of my previous articles on the new AirPods Pro, I don’t have a lot of past experience with active noise cancelling or reducing headphones. Because of this, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first got them. Just like many others, I have been very impressed with how much sound they block for their small size and how much more immersive the listening experience is because of that.

Living With the AirPods Pro: Working Hard

Week one with the new AirPods Pro has been really good, overall. They basically take all of the strengths of the original AirPods and add to them in meaningful ways. Because of this, Apple’s newest earbuds have received almost universal praise, with only repairability and difficulty in recycling them being the only major complaints. My own experience is pretty close, so far.

So I ended up getting my AirPods Pro on launch day after all! When I purchased them, my order notification said they would arrive tomorrow and the notification on the Apple Store app still said the same this afternoon. However, when I checked the tracking info after leaving work, low and behold they were out for delivery and headed my way.

Powerbeats Pro: I Think My Wife is in Love

I thought that my wife would love the new Powerbeats Pro wireless earbuds from Apple, but there is no way to be sure about these things. I’ve been wrong before in guessing my wife’s tastes. Even after almost 22 years of marriage, I still don’t have all the answers and I’m sure any husband can relate to that. She can be on the picky side about certain things and it just happens that things she puts on or in her ears are among them.
