  • Inboard’s M1 electric skateboard offers stiff competition

    Inboard’s M1 electric skateboard offers stiff competition

    Boosted Board, long considered the de facto electric skateboard, finally has some competition from a rival that is also based in California. Price as reviewed: $1,399 at Inboard The Inboard M1 brings a new take to the category, with hubless motors that are planted into the rear wheels of the board. This means that the motors, batteries and wires are hidden, and there’s no resistance in… Read More

  • Master & Dynamic’s MW50 on-ear headphones are comfy but costly

    Master & Dynamic’s MW50 on-ear headphones are comfy but costly

    The MW50 are on-ear headphones that perform like a pair of over-ears. They’re nice to look at, comfortable and, at $449, pretty pricey. The headphones are lightweight, but are ultimately acoustically inferior to their over-ear counterparts. If you’re looking for a pair of those, Master & Dynamic also offers the MW60. The design is similar to older M&D models: mesh grilles… Read More

  • LeEco’s Le Pro3 is cheap, fast and frustrating

    LeEco’s Le Pro3 is cheap, fast and frustrating

    LeEco would like nothing more than to be everything to everyone. The impulse is no better demonstrated than with the company’s grand U.S. debut a few months back, which included everything from phones and flat-screen TVs to a bicycle, an electric car, a VR headset and, yes, a cameo by Michael Bay directly from the set of the latest Transformers. Of all the products unveiled during… Read More

  • Sony gives Bose a run for its money with the MDR-1000X

    Sony gives Bose a run for its money with the MDR-1000X

    Sony makes no bones about going after Bose. In fact, when the company first showed off its product in the lead up to IFA this summer, it said as much, acknowledging that the QuietComfort line is largely considered the gold standard for noise-cancelling travel headphones. It’s a bit like getting the old board together and deciding you’re going to make a better soft drink than… Read More

  • Running with the Apple Watch Nike+

    Running with the Apple Watch Nike+

    I’m not trying to brag or anything (I am), but I comfortably ran a half marathon wearing the first version of the 42mm Apple Watch with a classy, stainless steel band. So, when I heard about Nike’s version of the Apple Watch, it’s not like I thought, “Finally! I totally need this because running with the regular Apple Watch sucks.” That’s not to say I… Read More
