Nokia Noise Cancelling Earbuds

Nokia Noise Cancelling Earbuds

An underwhelming pair of headphones that fail to excel in any particular field. While these earbuds boast true wireless connectivity and are very lightweight, the sound quality and noise cancellation is poor, and there are issues with achieving a secure fit in the ears. There are better models available for the same price. Pros Relatively […]

Vive Flow

Vive Flow

Vive Flow is a fascinating new step for virtual reality, packing the technology into a pair of glasses for a more portable and hassle-free experience. The design and built-in screen are both superb, but the reliance on the power of your smartphone leaves me unconvinced that there’s a killer app or use case that can […]

AEG QX9

AEG QX9

Striking to look at, the AEG QX9 is both a handheld vacuum cleaner for smaller jobs and an upright vacuum cleaner for bigger ones. It’s capable of cleaning well, although I did find that often I had to use the High power setting to get the best results. If you’re looking for flexibility, this cleaner […]

Offering decent video recording, this camera is a decent choice for those on a budget, even […]
