Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle Review

The Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle series belong to a family of Ultimate Ears portable music players, trendy, colourful, portable, pretty good sound quality packed inside them. Over the years, I had seen, tried, tested and reviewed a few of the Ultimate Ears portable music players such as the Ultimate Ears Roll, Megaboom and Mini Boom.

What are some of my views and thoughts on the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle when I was reviewing it? Today, I am going to share my experiences and review on the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle. Let me share with you the notes/points that I wrote during the review:

  • Trendy, colourful, artistic designs
  • Small, lightweight, portable, easy to carry around
  • Ideal if u want to bring it for travel overseas
  • Good for long driving road trips
  • There is a tough nylon string on the WONDERBOOM Freestyle that you can hook on to your backpack with a carabiner
  • Excellent and ideal for gatherings
  • Easy to pair via Bluetooth, seamless and smooth
  • Solid bass, not too heavy and strong
  • Treble, sharp and clear
  • Although it is a small package, possess good quality sound
  • 360 degrees of sound
  • Battery life is good, close to 10 hours of battery life
  • Waterproof – IPX7 rated

An ideal and fun travel accessory

When the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle was available for review, it coincides with my travel holiday to Hoi An and Da Nang, Vietnam. I brought it along for my holiday trip with my friends, providing us with music from our Spotify accounts played with the WONDERBOOM Freestyle bluetooth wireless speaker when we were traveling to Hoi An from Da Nang International Airport.

During our holiday stay,  we played music with the WONDERBOOM Freestyle in our hotel room while we enjoyed our supper, drinks and playing cards. I also brought it out to the Hoi An Old Town, when we sat down at a café by the river, playing music, enjoying the coffee and watching locals and tourists in action!

This particular series of Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle collection has a few different designs and I chose the Patches design for my review. What does Patches represent, it’s about, “You wear your heart on your sleeve and plaster your personality through patches and pins. Patches is a punch of personality to denim.”

Maybe it’s an omen, maybe it’s fated, there was a big Dragon lantern along the river of Hoi An Old Town when we were there and the ABC design has a dragon on it too! Therefore, on one of the nights in Hoi An, I brought the WONDERBOOM Freestyle to pay pilgrimage to the big Dragon!

My Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle review has been an interesting and fun time with my travel holiday overseas. If you are keen to own a portable and lightweight wireless music player, that has pretty good sound quality, as well as trendy and colourful, do check out the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle.

I would like to thank Logitech for the opportunity to review the Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Freestyle bluetooth wireless music speaker.

Jaybird FREEDOM 2 with SpeedFit Wireless Sport Headphones Review

The Jaybird FREEDOM 2 with SpeedFit wireless sport headphones was announced in September 2017 and it was available in the market in October 2017, together with the Jaybird RUN True Wireless Sport Headphones. The Jaybird FREEDOM 2 is a redesign of their award-winning, ultra small Freedom headphones, that I reviewed previously and a product that I really like.

This particular pair of Jaybird wireless headphones, is a product that I am pretty familiar with, having reviewed it previously. Therefore, I am able to identify the improvements and changes from the Freedom to FREEDOM 2 headphones. From the design to the quality of the music, Jaybird has made improvements, transforming the Jaybird FREEDOM 2 into a beautiful, fashionable, lightweight, sweat proof, water proof, more balanced design and improved sound quality inside this wireless headphones package, the smallest form factor on the market.

I recently got the opportunity to review the Jaybird FREEDOM 2 with SpeedFit Wireless sport headphones. Before I share more on my experiences, let me share some key fetures and information on the Jaybird FREEDOM 2 with SpeedFit wireless sport headphones.

Key Features

  • Secure-fit + SpeedFit — You don’t have to think about your ultra-small FREEDOM headphones staying in while you run, no matter how hard you run. You get improved soft and flexible combined tips and fins, and you can switch from an over-ear fit to under-ear in seconds with SpeedFit integrated cord-management – so secure you can forget you’re wearing them.
  • Sweat-proof — Take your FREEDOM 2 sport earbuds with you wherever your run takes you– rain, snow, or mud. They’re double hydrophobic nano coated for the ultimate protection from sweat and whatever else comes your way – go ahead and run wild.

With my previous experiences reviewing the Jaybird Freedom and Jaybird X3 headphones, as well the Jaybird RUN that I reviewed together with the Jaybird FREEDOM 2, I am familiar with the design, aesthestics and sound quality of the Jaybird family wireless headphones. Being a runner myself, I always appreciate a good quality sports wireless earphones that the Jaybird family delivers.

Although I don’t have videos of myself running with the Jaybird FREEDOM 2 wireless headphones (I haven’t master the art of selfie videography), let me share my views, opinions and product photos that I shot (with the Canon EOS M6 review camera) with my readers. From the photos that I shot, Freedom and FREEDOM 2 side by side, the differences and improvements can be seen clearly

Design / Aesthestics

  • Fits nicely into my ears, comfortable and secure
  • Multiple sizes of interchangeable tips and fins available
  • Sweat proof and water resistant
  • Improved design and longer wire length, making the Jaybird FREEDOM 2 more balanced in weight distribution
  • The FREEDOM 2 stopper design on the wire replaces the previous Freedom model clip design, safer (avoid losing/dropping it accidentally) and easier to use,
  • For the FREEDOM 2 model, the fin and ear buds come as a package together, versus the ear bud and fin are separate items in the previous Freedom model. This design makes it safer (avoid losing the ear bud and fin separately)
  • The FREEDOM 2 ears bud and fins uses softer materials (just as durable), making it more comfortable for the ears

Connectivity

  • Smooth, stable and easy bluetooth connection with my Apple iPhone 7 Plus
  • Easy, simple and fast connection with the Jaybird app

Sound

  • Clear, smooth, sharp and precise sound quality
  • Treble is clear, smooth and sharp
  • Bass is solid, clear and smooth, improved and stronger than the predecessor Jaybird Freedom
  • The friendly, useful and important Jaybird app is the tool for the user to fine tune the sound and style to their personal preferences

(Disclaimer: I don’t profess to be an audiophile expert, just a music/earphones enthusiast)

The Jaybird FREEDOM 2 with SpeedFit Wireless Sport Headphones is an improvement, in the design and sound quality, over their earlier Freedom model that is first and foremost, a pretty good wireless sport headphones.

For the sporting or leisure users who would decide to choose the Jaybird FREEDOM 2 wireless sport headphones, they would likely be the ones that don’t mind the wire segment (it comes in handy too, you can let the headphones rest on your shoulders) and the design of the Jaybird FREEDOM 2 is more aethestically appealing and attractive, accompanied by the good sound quality and standards packed inside this small form factor headphones.

The Jaybird family of wireless headphones cater to different groups of sporting and leisure users. From the truly wireless Jaybird RUN, to the more rugged Jaybird X3 for outdoors and extreme sports, and the Jaybird FREEDOM 2 for the sporting and leisure users who seeks a more aesthestic feel.

Although I don’t have videos of myself running with the Jaybird RUN headphones (I haven’t master the art of selfie videography), let me share my views, opinions and product photos that I shot (with the Canon EOS M6 review camera) with my readers below:

Design / Aesthestics

  • Fits nicely into my ears, comfortable and secure
  • Multiple sizes of interchangeable tips and fins available
  • Sweat proof and water resistant
  • Sometimes, you might forget that you are wearing them
  • Charging case is handy and essential for storage and charging the Jaybird RUN headphones

It’s a beautifully designed, wire free, lightweight and compact earphones that fit nicely and safely into your ears without the user knowing that it’s inside there while they are enjoying the music in the midst of their sports routine or daily life routine.

The sound quality overall is really good except it’s not “strong” / “powerful” enough (in the bass segment) for me (probably because I am an old school hard rock fan). That’s where the Jaybird app comes in very handy, an excellent tool to fine tune to my personal preferences and liking.

Sometimes, it’s ironic that I would prefer a wired wireless headphones because I can let my headphones hang and rest on my shoulders after a run or workout versus having to hold the Jaybird RUN headphones on my hands or pockets (if the charging case is not brought out) and worrying that I might drop or lost it! Yet the true wireless Jaybird RUN headphones give me an option that I really like to have, no wires headphones!

The Jaybird RUN True Wireless Sport Headphones is really good, if you are looking for the true wireless, take a look at them! If you still prefer the wired wireless, go for their Jaybird Freedom 2 wireless headphones.

Availability

Jaybird RUN True Wireless Sport Headphones is available at selected retailers including jaybirdsport.com. The suggested retail price of RUN is $299.00.

New Logitech Slim Combo for iPad Pro

The Apple iPad Pro is one of the technological devices available in the market today that represents the future generation of personal computing in both professional and leisure segments. They are popular and other brands in the market have design peripheral devices to complement the Apple iPad Pro.

Logitech announced the new Logitech Slim Combo for iPad Pro that users can consider to add on to their iPad Pro, turning into a personal computer on the move.

Let me share with you more information and pictures on the new Logitech Slim Combo for iPad Pro from the press release information:

“In the past, you were bound to a workspace with a PC, and used your tablet for quick messages or entertainment when you weren’t in the office; that’s not the case anymore,” said Moninder Jain, head of Video Collaboration for Logitech Asia Pacific and managing director for ASEAN. “To be a pro today, you need the power of the PC, but more easily available whether you’re on a train, at the park, in a meeting or wherever you need to be. The Slim Combo unleashes the power of iPad Pro to bring you the future of personal computing; a future that’s easier, faster and more fun.”

Key Features
Four versatile modes: The Slim Combo provides versatility through its four use modes — Typing, Viewing, FaceTime and Reading. You can comfortably shoot off an email using the full-size keyboard, pop off the detachable keyboard to sketch out an idea with your Apple Pencil, switch to portrait and take an incoming video call or just sit back and get lost in an e-book without distractions.

Laptop-like typing: Full-size backlit keys, smart iOS shortcuts provide the most laptop-like typing experience on the iPad Pro. Punch out emails – or an entire novel – on a backlit keyboard with carefully-crafted well-spaced and full-size concave keys. Three levels of adjustable backlighting keep you productive even in low light. And when you don’t need to type, simply detach the keyboard and enjoy the beautiful iPad Pro screen with nothing standing in the way. This is the future of personal computing.

Connect like a Pro: Batteries aren’t included, because you’ll never need them. Slim Combo connects to iPad Pro through the Smart Connector, meaning you will never have to pair or charge your keyboard again. Just click in and type away.

Pro-styled perfection: The Slim Combo provides 360 degrees of protection in an incredibly slim keyboard and case combo. The case is built to provide the right angle for every situation – and it’s not always 90 degrees. Two micro hinges ensure that Slim Combo smoothly reclines within a 50-degree range and stays in place once you’ve found the perfect viewing angle.

A home for Apple Pencil: The Apple Pencil brings a whole new creative experience to your iPad Pro, and the Slim Combo has an Apple Pencil holder to makes sure it’s always by your side. Slide your Apple Pencil into the holder– where it won’t get lost, or in the way.

The second innovation is Logitech G LIGHTSPEEDTM technology, an end-to-end system optimization built on decades of wireless development experience that provides unrivaled connectivity and power performance. Compatible with the POWERPLAY wireless charging system, Logitech G also introduced two new flagship gaming mice, the new Logitech® G903 LIGHTSPEED™ Wireless Gaming Mouse and Logitech® G703 LIGHTSPEED™ Wireless Gaming Mouse.

“For decades, we’ve pioneered development in wireless gaming, and our new POWERPLAY and LIGHTSPEED wireless technologies continue this commitment to wireless superiority,” said Moninder Jain, Managing Director, ASEAN and Vice-President for Logitech G. “With POWERPLAY, LIGHTSPEED and our new G903 and G703 mice, you’ll get unbeatable precision, lag-free performance and infinite power, which gives gamers the highest-quality experience.”

Logitech G LIGHTSPEED Wireless Technology

Trusted by gaming enthusiasts and esports professionals worldwide, LIGHTSPEED wireless technology can be the difference between winning it all or walking away with nothing. Featuring a one-millisecond report rate and end-to-end signal optimization, LIGHTSPEED delivers competition-level responsiveness at speeds faster than many competitive wired gaming mice. Decades of wireless engineering experience mean LIGHTSPEED has wireless signal strength up to 16x (12dB) higher than the competition and a unique Frequency Agility Mechanism that automatically avoids problematic interference, ensuring smooth and consistent performance.

LIGHTSPEED underpins both the POWERPLAY wireless charging system and G903 and G703 gaming mice, meaning these devices can pair directly with the POWERPLAY’s integrated LIGHTSPEED wireless receiver for optimal signal strength and the convenience of charging and data over a single USB cable.

POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System

POWERPLAY reinvents the possibilities of wireless charging. A departure from existing wireless charging standards, which require the charging device to sit idle in one specific area to charge, POWERPLAY was designed from the ground up to deliver uninterrupted charging over its mousing surface – even while the mouse is in play. The wireless charging system uses a groundbreaking application of electromagnetic resonance that creates an energy field above POWERPLAY’s 275 x 320mm surface to deliver wireless power without interfering with the precise tracking and data transmission of high-performance gaming mice.

The POWERPLAY energy field is captured and transformed into charging current by the POWERCORE™ module, which attaches magnetically to compatible wireless gaming mice, including the Logitech G903 and G703.

Logitech® G903 and G703 LIGHTSPEED™ Wireless Gaming Mice

The latest in Logitech G’s long history of high performance gaming mice, both the G903 and G703 deliver on the brand’s expectation of superior performance and unparalleled quality while also adding new LIGHTSPEED technology. Additional compatibility with the POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System provides untethered play, unlimited charging, and unmatched performance. Features of the G903 and G703 include:

  • Pixel-Precise Sensor: The Logitech G903 and G703 mice come equipped with the PMW3366 optical sensor, widely regarded by esports professionals and gaming enthusiasts as the best gaming mouse sensor on the market. Thanks to years of innovations, the PMW3366 has zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI). The resulting experience is incredible tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness, even at speeds over 400 IPS.

  • Advanced Mechanical Button Tensioning: Precisely-tensioned metal springs and exclusive mechanical pivot hinges on G903 keep the primary left and right mouse buttons poised to trigger. This technology delivers an exceptionally clean and crisp button feel, response, and consistency. Logitech G improved on the design and boosted button durability up to 2.5x with 50 million click switches.

  • Supreme Comfort and Quality: Both mice deliver long-lasting comfort. The Logitech G903 features a configurable button layout and ambidextrous design that allows for left- or right-handed use and works with nearly any mouse grip style, including palm, claw and fingertip grips. The Logitech G703 features a lightweight, ergonomically designed body that was made to mold to your hand. Rubber grips on the left and right sides offer added control. You can use the mice directly out-of-the-box, or you can program the buttons with custom game commands using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS).

Pricing and Availability

The POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System are available for purchase in September for a suggested retail price of $199.00. The Logitech G903 and G703 LIGHTSPEED wireless gaming mice are expected at global retailers in September for suggested retail prices of $249.00 and $159.00, respectively.
