Review

The AGPTek Roar Headphone Amplifier is a pretty surprising little amplifier. It is extremely portable amplifier that increases the “quality” and how loud you can listen to your music.

I put quotes around quality, because audio is VERY opinion based. To me personally, I didn’t notice an incredible increase in quality. I did notice however that I was able to play my music louder with a little to none distortion. However, your miles may vary, and you may actually notice an increase in the quality of your audio streams.

The build quality of the Roar is quite impressive. It is in an aluminum casing that feels pretty solid. Keep in mind the Roar is designed to allow interference, so I would keep it away from anything that produces a signal, ie your Cellphone.

Overall, I was quite impressed with the Roar and how loud it made listening to my music. Again, I personally didn’t notice a huge improvement to quality, but you may. For the price, you will be hard pressed to find an equal in portable headphone amplifiers. I will note that the battery does last a while, as it lasted a couple days of use without needed a charge at all.

*Disclaimer: I received this at a discount. This is 100% my own opinion*

Edifier H750 Review

Review

The H750 produces a great natural sound, but suffers, but a little bit of poor quality. However, for the price that the headset is, the lack of quality can be overlooked for greater sound quality.

I will start off with what I think shows a lack of quality. It is not a big deal, but the adjustment on the cusp of the headset, opens way too easy. It adjusts way too easily with no friction. Also, I am not too fond of the glossy plastic, it shows your fingerprints WAY to easy.

But, on the positive side, the ear cups are very cushioned. Edifier definitely focused on delivering high sound quality over the quality of the headset. Which at this price point, I don’t mind as long as I can fully enjoy the music that I am listening to. I’ll tell you what, I really do enjoy using the headset to listen to music. Bass isn’t overpowering like most headsets and the highs are crisp and not distorted at high volume.

Overall, I am happy with the sound quality that headphones produce and it definitely makes listening to music enjoyable. However, I believe these headsets are better suited towards an office environment. It provides decent sound isolation, good sound quality, but the quality leaves something to desire.

Nyrius Smart Outlet Review

Review

To begin this review, the Nyrius Smart Outlet is a great device to have, but it is not without its quirks. However, if you look past the quirks you will be extremely happy with your purchase. Having the ability to remotely turn on/off devices and lights is extremely useful, but definitely not as useful as the schedules.

Scheduling lights or devices is extremely helpful, I use it when I leave for vacation. I was looking for a device like this for a while that allowed me to schedule dates and times to turn on lights as well as having a proximity sensor on them.

The software can use a little work, as well as bringing both the light and outlet apps together in one HOME application. That would be kind of helpful.

Build quality is really good. The outlet is heavy, but not too heavy, and definitely doesn’t feel cheap and hollow. It is a grounded plug which helps for larger devices as well.

I did have a connection issue with my phone, but I don’t know if it is due to software or hardware. It didn’t really bother me that much since I only encountered it once. But I thought I should mention it.

One thing I would like to request, is a Analytical feature on power draw. That could be helpful.
