Since my Audeze LCD-3 planar magnetic headphones arrived around a year ago, I have not listened to any others (except for brief comparisons and travel.) I have been a fan of the Sennheiser HD580/600/650 line for as long as I can remember, and Audeze just blows them out of the water.

Other than being one of the most ubiquitous programs on the planet, it’s been the go-to word processing system for more than a quarter-century because it’s as basic as it gets. But occasionally, you’ve got assignments that beg for a lot more options than simple […]
Almost everyone has their smartphone in a case of one kind or another. Beyond simple protection, finding a case that can charge your phone on its own, but doesn’t feel like it’s also adding a couple pounds to the phone’s weight is the tricky part.
