Wednesday Highlights: CES 2013

Here is a listing of the products Mike was able to review while touring the exhibits today.

Bob wearing the AfterShokz earphonesThere was a lot of anticipation surrounding the latest release from AfterShokz.  Here is Mike's recording with the President of AfterShokz at their CES booth. From what he could tell in a very noisy environment, the new AfterShokz Bluetooth model worked well. It was choppy but likely because of the thousands of wireless signals around. He'll get one at the end of January and report back.

Blue Microphones had two microphones that Mike sampled, Nessie and the Mikey Digital.  Hear Mike's Nessie audio file or Mikey audio file.

Mike at the Clearphones booth reviewing the i700One of the 2013 CES Innovations winners, ClearSounds, was also on the list of stops at CES.  Mike reviewed the ClearSounds i700, which allows you to unify your land line and your iPhone.

Next stop was the Cord Cruncher earphones, the first ever no tangle design.  Mike liked them so much he even had his guide dog, Tank, try them on.

 Also worth a stop was the Edifier Speakers booth.  Mike reviewed the Extreme Connect with Bluetooth and various designer speakers, most notable were the Spinnaker speakers.

 Mike also checked out the FitBit wrist band, which you wear on your wrist day and night and it will track your activity. It can track your steps taken, calories burned, hours slept, quality of sleep, distance traveled and active minutes.  Visit the FitBit website.

 MyCharge, Portable Power Solutions, aim to double or triple your battery life.  They even had enormous earbuds for Mike to pose with.  Mike's review of MyCharge.
Plantronics ear pieces
Mike's review of Plantronics Voyager Legend Bluetooth Headset with Smart Sensor technology that reacts when you put the headset on, letting you quickly take a call without a click. If you’re already wearing it, Voyager Legend announces who’s calling and waits for you to say "Answer" or "Ignore." Simply tap the voice command button and ask to check battery level, connection status, and more. With technology this nimble, Voyager Legend is the first truly intelligent Bluetooth® headset.
 Mike's review of Lenovo Helix, see the Lenovo website for more information.

 Here are more of Mike's audio files from the day:

Mophie battery backup units
Ozaki iPhone 5 kickstand case
